Re: I'm kinda worried about the children of fundamentalists

Q Anon cultists believe that the stay-at-home order was not issued for the purpose of isolating people from COVID-19. It was issued so that the streets would be clear when thousands of people are arrested for being part of satanic groups that are hiding millions of children underground in tunnels f...

Re: NOMference 2020!!

You know that horrible thing on God caused the pandemic so that missionaries would be home with their families for conference? Well, alternately God caused the pandemic so that all the Joseph Smith worship at least wouldn’t be witnessed in person by thousands in the conference center. It was God’s w...

Re: God’s divine purpose for COVID-19

Religion is supposed to actually HELP SOLVE the problem, if not outright eliminate it. It doesn't and can't. Corona Virus is the litmus tests for all religious claims. Every reason they give for NOT being able to do something is just an ad hoc excuse. Maybe it would be better to say that religion C...

Re: No Book of Mormon, no gathering of Israel???

Every once in a while something comes out to make a NOM realize just how stupid Mormonism really is. If Joseph had not written fiction about some imaginary people, God would be thwarted. And God is too stupid to figure out away around the BoM not existing? Really? What a weak pathetic God Rusty beli...

Re: Faith Journey level-up!

I think I have a higher tolerance for LDS meetings than most apostates. I will be watching GC this weekend mainly to know what ideas, policies, and expectations will be in play when dealing with the many, many believers in my life. I was happy with 2 hour church and the functional end of home teach...

Re: What's Helping Me Today

Fifi, I was thinking about you this morning, realizing I hadn’t heard from you in a while. I am so glad you posted; I love reading your thoughts. I miss my grandmother. She was a hard, bitter, and unpleasant woman; died a few year back and wasn’t well for the couple of years preceding her death, bu...

Re: COVID-19 -- game in play

My nephew’s whole family is sick. The symptoms match Covid 19. But, since there are not enough test kits, the family each got different diagnosis, and sent home. It would be logical that with the whole family sick with nearly identical symptoms, that they have the same thing. But they got told that ...

Re: How much weight do you anticipate gaining due to social distancing?

My husband had to go to Walmart to send off the tax paperwork to the guy who does our taxes. He decided to do a little grocery shopping while at Walmart. He came home with a pie, ice cream, and three bags of Easter candy. How to self medicate feeling depressed.

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

Remember, those “confirmed cases are only the ones sick enough to be hospitalized. My daughter is still sick with something that fits all the symptoms, but not enough “deep pain” in her chest, so she can’t get tested and people around her are getting sick, but they are all just people getting sick, ...

Re: Home Church and Women

Devout women who are deep in probably won't be too interested in doing it. On the other hand, it's all made up garbage, so if it makes them feel better, whatever. :D This was also discussed on Exponent, one of the feminist blogs. Some of them are saying they are doing it.

Re: An Irish Blessing....

I need me a coffee cup that says that. Meanwhile, I am drinking my cup for and on behalf of the widow my husband was called to give the sacrament to. I figure the coffee will undo the good of the sacrament and perhaps she will repent of violating social isolation and risking spread of viruses. May t...

Re: Any church-at-home experience to report?

My spouse an is off delivering the sacrament to some widow in the ward. I am not at all sure that delivering the sacrament to the old ladies is worth the risk to both the two ministering brothers who go to her home and do this little ritual, and the little old ladies. All three involved today are hi...
