Re: New message about choosing to believe

I never could comprehend the idea that in order for God to help you, you must first figure out the secret order or the celestial puzzle. God didn't help you? Well you didn't pray enough. Or sincerely enough. Or long enough. Or in the correct position. Or your tithes weren't enough. Or you didn't fas...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

I was never accepted amongst the Utah LDS community because of my Slayer t-shirts and long hair. Interesting. Did those same folks try to deny you basic human rights because you wore Slayer t-shirts? And since you're saying that there should be no dissent in LD$-Inc., what do you think about the "L...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

Both Blashyrkh and Newme: WHEN DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR HETEROSEXUALITY? Occasionally when overstocked, ZCMI used to have heavily discounted sales. Sometimes during polygamy season, they used to have buy-backs of previously sold orientations. I have never argued against homosexuality. Be gay. Be straigh...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

IF YOU DONT LIKE THE BELIEFS OF THE CHURCH AND IT MAKES YOU SAD THEN DONT BE A MEMBER!!!! I couldn't say what NOM represents today, but this is certainly antithetical to the original vision. But, then I really don't think this is an accurate portrayal of the base concerns. The stated concern is too...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

I don’t care if they ever allows gays to marry in the temple. But I think they should stay out of politics. During prop 8 they even broke the law and spent tithing money to fight gay marriage. I don’t think they should be allowed to break the law. I don’t think they have any “religious freedom” to ...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

Deep down this has very little to do with the LGBTQ issue. It has to do with people demanding that a group, any group change their centuries old beliefs and practices because they don't like them. The majority of LDS people like what their leaders teach. I would say that a majority don't want the LG...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

So by your standards the church can't teach anything because no matter what they teach someone is going to be affected negatively. Can't teach the Word of Wisdom because some people really struggle with chemical/alcohol addiction like I do. Can't teach about the law of chastity because some people ...

Re: I choose love, full stop.

So where do you draw the line? Do you protest and make a fuss because the church believes that God lives near Kolob? Or let's say you believe in infant baptism yet the church believes differently. Do you again throw a fit because the Church's beliefs run contrary to yours? You think that the BofM is...

Re: The Holy Ghost vs. active shooters

The point of my original post was never meant to be a debate on the merits of the 2A or guerilla warfare. It was meant to point out the blatant hypocrisy of the leaders of the church. You lowly members must rely on the Holy Spirit to protect you but the announced ones get men in suits with Glocks to...

This has to do with forcing someone or some group who thinks you are bad to accept you in order to make whatever it is in the back of your head tha...

The Holy Ghost vs. active shooters

I just read the Church's new policy on responding to active shooters. Good heavens who comes up with this stuff? It sates that members should use whatever tools they have to defend themselves. Good thing a triple combinations weighs a ton. Right? Then it states that we should rely on the Holy Spirit...

You have kind of made my point. Why are we getting all wound up and demanding society change for 2% of the population?

Re: Elder Oaks Defines "Gender" for Us - In His Usual Bigoted Way

It is not normal to be transgendered according to the LDS culture. Then leave the LDS culture. Problem solved. Except even then the problem is not solved. The LDS church uses its political muscle to impose its doctrinal views on members and nonmembers alike, as with Proposition 8. LGBT+ aren't dema...

And why I care about something that only affects 2% of the population? Because they are human beings who deserve respect. Didn't Jesus say something about the one and the ninety nine? Two is twice as much as one. Somebody check my math on that. O.K., lessee here.....mathematics, the subject I love ...

Seriously? This whole choose your gender thing is only a recent creation. 10 years ago you all would have agreed that transgendered people were mentally ill or had some serious issues. Now that it's been pushed on us that you can be any gender you want you have all accepted it as a real thing. Yes t...

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

I can do it in one word. I heard this for the first time last evening while at my in-laws for a birthday party.
