Re: Is NOM going the direction of some other online groups?

First off I really appreciate you bringing up this question. I am a typical NEM. I basically attend for my wife. I had a heart attack this week and the ward members were more supportive than I can imagine. I live in an older ward and I had a 70-year-old couple mow my lawn. There is an 78-year-old ma...

Re: GA Visit Review

We had some lady from some high position in the church come speak at our ward a few months ago. She told us some faith promoting stories from her youth. I became so bored/enraged at how ridiculously mundane the stories were that I stood up in the middle of the speech, grabbed my special needs son an...

Re: church opposition to the Equality Act

Blashyrkh, you're very clearly not Black, or gay. I'm guessing you're not a racial minority? I'm also guessing you've been blessed by white privilege your whole life and don't have any close black relatives or friends. If you do, I would be interested if you have discussed your opinion with them No...

Re: church opposition to the Equality Act

So - if all landowners in America were white and none of them wanted to rent to anyone who was black, a nation full of homeless black people is OK then?

Re: church opposition to the Equality Act

I knoe that I will get flamed for this but for once, and only once, I agree with the church. I own three homes which I rent. I actually prefer to rent to gay men because they take the best care of the place. They NEVER miss the rent. Young white kids suck for all of the opposite reasons. However, b...

However, today I have sadly discovered that I am not welcome here. Your hate filled rant towards straight, white men came straight...

So now there is something wrong with me being a straight, white, cis (whatever in the hell this means) male? You seem just like the "inclusive" bigots your are railing against.. Nice 😒 Moderator note: I split this out of the GC post to its own new post. It’s an important discussion to have. Just not...

Re: THEY MUST APOLOGIZE!

I have no empathy for someone who is so weak that they allow these dinosaurs to determine their individual happiness. Iron Maiden makes me happy. Going to church does not. Therefore if Nelson comes out and tells me to destroy my Somewhere in Time album I will have to decide which has historically ma...

Apologize? Goodness sakes. If you live a lifestyle, any lifestyle and someone comes out against is and you cower or bend to their opinion then you my friend are a weak individual. Even when I was an active member I did things that were against the teachings of the church. I had a decision to make. D...

Re: Packing Heat

Okay, that's just crazy. It's also a really unsafe way to carry a gun. If he's that insistent on packing heat in church, he needs to get a proper holster. Imagine if that gun has the safety off, and it falls out of his pants and discharges. That would certainly wake up all of the snoozers during Sa...

Re: Packing Heat

Why not? If the head honchos of the church can justify building their own tactical training facility with a dozen rifle and handgun lanes and "force on force" training area so that their own security can protect them then why shouldn't my family be afforded the same protection?

Re: LDS Churchs new tactical training facility

It is a good thing that Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand's prime minister, is no longer a member of the former Mormon Church since she would otherwise be pressured by Church authorities to not ban assault weapons in New Zealand. Assault and semi-automatic weapons are a part of the LDS pioneer heritage, ...
