Re: "Earthly Identifiers" or "Don't Be Gay"

RMN sure seems to know what makes the adversary rejoice. Using the word Mormon and using labels! Who knew? Thanks. But I guess "Mormon " is kind of a label, isn't it? So it makes sense. We'll have to stop calling people active, inactive, members, endowed, un-endowed, full tithe payers, prospective e...

Re: Destigmatizing Therapy

I recently heard that LDS social services in our area was seeking a counselor, and offering an hourly pay that would be just over minimum wage. Barely over minimum.. for a position that requires a graduate degree. Do we wonder why therapeutic services might be less than stellar? I just wish our chur...

Re: Problems interacting with normal people as a family...

Every now and then I'd say, "I'm the designated driver" and then often the non alcoholic drinks were free. When I used to play music gigs in bars, the bar owners woke love it that I didn't drink alcohol during the breaks cuz they were providing drinks for free. I was around alcohol most of my life a...

Re: 17 new temples?

I remember when there was the 3 fold mission of the church: proclaim the gospel, strengthen the saints, and redeem the dead. And the EQ and HP group each had the three committees that corresponded to the 3 missions. And the proclaiming the gospel committee gave out books of Mormon, the strengthening...

Re: If I were an atheist

Can I get an amen for the atheist? Good stuff. When it comes down to the very basic parts of belief, aren't we all really agnostic? Nobody really knows. We might hope, we might believe, we might hope to believe, but we do not know. We might be agnostic atheists, in that we don't know but we believe ...

Re: Wake-up Call for Mormon Women

Over 30 years ago, recently married and maybe a year and a half returned from a mission, I remember having a mini shelf moment while reading D&C 132 as part of Sunday School class. I talked to my wife about it, I asked the wise gospel doctrine teacher, who suggested there was some implied added some...

Re: If I were an atheist

I find it fascinating that your primary source to support your .. it's hard to really call it an argument.. let's say opinion.. regarding what morality is, or what morals are, and how atheists don't know the difference between ethics and morals, comes from a social psychologist who self-identifies a...

Re: If I were an atheist

To miss-quote a famous magician athiest: "I rape, pillage and murder exactly as much as I want to - which is none." (In answer to "how do you not become an awful person without a belief in a god?) The problem with this sort of thinking is like saying, "If I didn't believe in science, I could still ...

Re: 17 new temples?

In one of the recent MS videos on youtube Dehlin said he just found out that real reason the church is building temples is so it can maintain the tax exempt status. He didn't go into details but did say he would talk about it soon. I don't know all the rules into that, perhaps they have so much mon...

Re: Updated list of Humble Braggage

My MIL used to like to say all her boys served missions and all her daughters married RMs and they all got married in the temple, but not all of her sister's kids did because they would sometimes go camping on Sundays.

Re: 17 new temples?

Montpelier temple might be more of a "vacation" temple for the thousands of summer Bear Lake visitors. It doesn't seem like there is enough population in that area to justify a temple unless all the Mormon vacationers are counted, though I might be wrong. I suspect that temple might get pretty quiet...

So prior to today, Rusty has announced 83 temples. With today's (17 right?), he's at an even 100. Probably been his goal for some time. Hinckley only had 78, Rusty is King!
