Re: The Rainbow " Y "

Against this. My step daughter is courting an African. I am fine with that. Now while I don't understand this lifestyle I have no problem with people living however they choose. However. When I didn't jump up and down and throw a coming out party for my step daughter and I will not go to the annual...

Re: What about Neanderthals and Ancients?

What happens to us, the Lunar Society of Friends? All Joseph Smith said about us is that we exist. There are no temples I know of on the Moon. Is anyone on Earth paying us mind? There are a few Mormons here on the Earth side, but none with authority to establish a temple.

Re: Indoctrination: how They want your loved ones to see you

Has this ever been used in an official church publication? I've seen versions of this but I dont believe ever from any official church materials?

Re: Keeping up with Trump

But will they get paid?????? One never knows. It will be good to get Trump out of the news. He will go nutty not being the frontline of newspapers and TV news shows. Of course his other legal problems are in the works. I hope we'll hear about those as a side note. I still wonder what arrested riote...

Re: Examples in the BoM where you can show *how* Joseph Smith authored it

Then there's the part in Mosiah 5 where the entire crowd says this in unison: 2 And they all cried with one voice, saying: Yea, we believe all the words which thou hast spoken unto us; and also, we know of their surety and truth, because of the Spirit of the Lord Omnipotent, which has wrought a mig...

Re: Examples in the BoM where you can show *how* Joseph Smith authored it

Mosiah xv: 1-4 is apologetics for the ridiculous nonsense (excuse me, holy mystery ) of the Trinity. Much of the Trinitarian stuff (like calling Mary the "mother of God") has been edited out of the Book of Mormon, but not that passage. Also the testimony of the eight witnesses says that the Father, ...

Re: A VERY tight translation

Considering that Joe uses "thou" and "ye" interchangeably, as in "O thou child of hell, why tempt ye me?", without distinction of number¹ or social station,² it's not correct Early Modern English. Joe would have been at least somewhat familiar with EModE, as he was familiar with the KJV. We also kno...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Some people quit the party because they wanted to be more liberal. Most wanted to take the party back to conservatism. Last time a bunch broke off and created the Tea Party. Most of us are not extreme, but the Republican party isn't representing us anymore. So, stay tuned for something different. W...

And why are you surprised that I believe in Homeopathy? I don't know. Given that you believe that taxation is theft and support the most obvious con-man this side of L. Ron Hubbard, I shouldn't be. At this point, my opinion of your words is so low that if you told me that the Earth is round, I'd ha...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

It's simple doublethink. Trump lies more than any other leader, yet he's the most honest. 2 + 2 both = 4 and = 5, but 4 ≠ 5. Jesus was born both before the death of Herod the Great (4 BCE) and after the ascension of Quirinius to the governorship of Syria (6 CE). So, like if half of the nation claime...

Most of this post is beneath refutation, so I'll only address those parts thereof which particularly interest or amuse me.

What does FT mean? Yes, FT is full-time. PT is part-time. I think it's kind of interesting that was an unfamilar abbreviation to you because I assure you that it is commonly used in women's groups when discussing their jobs and life.

Re: Sexism of exmormon men

There has been a bunch of hubub recently by Lindsay Hansen Park about sexism from ExMormon men. She wrote this letter about it: https://www.patheos.com/blogs/yearofpolygamy/2021/01/an-open-letter-to-the-exmormon-men-about-sexism/ I’m a man. Not ExMormon.

You have barely thought about Mormonism for years, you move on to other things, gender transition intervenes, and you decide to visit NOM again, not to get support, but on a lark.
