Re: New Apologetic Movie: Witnesses

This entire production is a vanity project for Daniel Peterson; he's spent a good chunk of the last couple of years trying to raise funds for the production of this movie. All of this, for what purpose? A purpose may be to gain a wider audience. We live in a "YouTube" generation. Few really want to...

Re: 'Do you think I could ever be happy outside of the church?'

It's so sad to hear DW say she would be a terrible person without the church, and no amount of me telling her that I know she's a good person regardless can change that. When it finally imploded for me, I was surprised that I was still a good person without the church. Without the reward of an afte...

Re: Keys To Sexuality

I thought you had to invite him, with prayer, before you get going. Maybe that's the HG. Perhaps Jesus and the HG are both there. And here I thought the church frowned on group YOU KNOW WHAT. Well it does explain a lot. The HG is too busy to whisper that the church is true. No wonder I never felt sp...

Re: What do you believe about it now?

The Church has developed a well-staffed bureaucracy and dedicated volunteer corp that could put its collective shoulder to the wheel and help a lot of needy people. I actually agree with this Moksha. But the church would have to make some pretty big changes. I am concerned about the total illusiona...

Re: New Apologetic Movie: Witnesses

The trouble I see with the witnesses is that eye witness testimony is unreliable. People can be duped by magicians into believing they saw something when they really didn't. Martin Harris claimed to have spoken to Jesus in the form of a deer. He was a witness to the vorhee plates, too. Oliver Cowde...

Re: Update from the village

Congrats on being able to face the hard part with your wife. I don't know how a NOM spouse does it alone. I was wondering what was said about Heavenly Mother that frustrated your wife? Are they still pushing the "She's too precious to talk about," " Must protect Her from hate" crap?

Mormons and Romney

For those of you in Utah, or in a concentrated LDS area, what is the overall feeling about Romney? Is he respected, hated, a traitor, or ignored? Watching the news about him getting boo'd had me wondering where he fits in, among mormons, these days.

Re: Is forgiveness required?

I always thought that the requirement to forgive was too broad. Forgive and forget doesn't have to mean you just let it go, as if it never happened. Someone mentioned anger as being a normal emotion. It isn't bad to be angry. I agree. Anger serves a purpose. Now grudges can be destructive. Some peop...

If you’re in Utah, I think you should submit your work to the Springville Museum of Art for their annual summer show. Everyone would love to see this! I’m sorry for delving ...

Re: I know the guy who saved Mark Hoffman's life.

That section of the documentary brought up so many comments on Twitter. Twitter, just like any social media platform, is just a big opinion and gossip session, but it does give a feel for how people think about things. Is the guy still TBM? Did he say anything about the negative comments about comma...

Re: Keys To Sexuality

My grandparents, very TBM, had never seen each other naked. They had a large herd of children, but did the dirty deed through sheets with openings. This tells me that they only did the act for procreation. It also tells me that while grampa got to enjoy some of it, grandma probably didn't. I wonder ...

Re: Trigger Warning: Surviving Sexual Assault

I remember, in the 70's, one MIA councilor told us that you can't get your virginity back, but you can always become chaste and get your virtue back. If it was taken from you by force, you never lost it. If you committed sin, you can repent and become clean. She was a councilor before her time. She ...

Re: Just when I think I've heard it all !!!

To keep the celestial kingdom pure? Wow. Sometimes I do wish mormon heaven was what we were really going to get. It would be entertaining to see the look on TBM faces when they see who really did and did not make it into the CK. Personally, I would want to stay far away from that kingdom. Still, it ...
