Re: Anti-Tithing Anecdote

I stopped paying after I found out from my bro-in-law, who works in church security, about Pres. Nelsons new state-of-the-art firearms training facility. My wife and I got into an argument when my years of pent up rage finally let loose. My exact words were "I am not going to send that mother f@%#er...

Re: Any other retirees watching their future go down the drain?

Well, jump in the life raft like the rest of us. I was very close to retiring until a heart condition sent those dreams down the drain. Now instead of enjoying my later years I am working two jobs and praying for the grim reapers return as thats the only time I will be able to stop.

Re: Maybe it’d be nice if everyone posted a very short intro who they are

Me? Born amd raised in the church. Missionary. Married in the temple. Yada, yada. I can honestly say that I enjoyed growing up in the church. My ward was very close and we had a great time. However, the church has changed for the worse. Its all about the dollar and expanding the image rather than he...

Re: Julie Rowe, Chad Daybell, Lori Vallow and her missing kids?

Sounds like an inspired movement. How do I join? So Julie Rowe is still a thing? I wonder what happened to her followers who were all ready for the 2nd coming a few years ago. I dont know what happened to her followers. Maybe they are living in their tent city. What I do know is that my wife and I ...

Re: On losing your temple recommend

I am in the same boat as you. Mine ran out a year ago and I just had to have the face-to-face with my wife. I quietly reminded her that the temple wasnt what I was about. I explained to her that I find solace and peace in a different place than her. I reminded her that I support her 100% in her atte...

Re: NOM - recognized as a choice

NOM has changed. To me, it used to be for people who questioned parts of the church or didnt believe yet stayed in for either the social or familial reasons. Now it has become much more of a non-believing/anti-mormon attitude.

Re: Equality of pay for women

I have never worked a job where women were paid less than men...per hour. In my current job if you arent making $100k you arent applying yourself. Yet I rarely see women volunteer for the overtime that most of the men do. I rarely see women apply for advancement. Some do but most dont. I have seen n...

Re: How to Tarnish Your Brand in 5 Easy Steps

Two thoughts on this. 1. If you have money to go to college you shouldnt be able to be on medicaid. 2. What business is it of the college to require a student to have health insurance? When I was in college no one ever asked if I had or even wanted insurance. I never had insurance while in college. ...

Re: Starting your own cult?

Here's the deal with my cult. So the LDS requires you to pay 10% of your income in order to receive salvation. Catholics and Protestants pass around the collection plate. What does doing any of this get you? Nothing guaranteed that's for sure. There is always some loophole. Until now. You pay me a o...

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...

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 ...
