Re: Victory, BOM Musical on Broadway NYC

I saw it in SF. Can't say I loved it, but I have never been a fan of theater. While I didn't find it offensive, I could see how some would. I'll never look at frogs or balloons the same EVER again. I think the overall message was good. I think the typical TBM may be offended. To those who are open m...

Re: Why hasn't Archimedes Resigned Yet?

I think your choice is a good one. About the revenge thing, it is, at least for me, satisfying to fantasize about sweet revenge. While it's a great thought, it is something I never acted on. I know I would feel a lot of regret if I had. Part of healing is in letting go. Anyway, a better revenge is t...

Re: The Sound of my shelf breaking

"Give the Lord equal time?" Don't they realize that those who have faced their faith crisis head-on have given triple+ time to understand? To try to keep their faith? Why are we still "deceived?" Just another way to make you feel less-than in this church. Something is wrong with ME when the holy gho...

Re: The subtleness of Satan?

God blessed me with extreme ugliness to combat the subtitles of the adversary. All my life I thought it was a curse, when it turns out its merely a "tinder mercy" from the lord. Hey, me too! my Mia Maid teacher told me it was probably a blessing of protection from...you know. What a crock, and what...

Re: The Waiting Game

I'm curious to the responses too. I like how you didn't just send the email without him agreeing to discuss the issues. If only we could get that same respect from TBMs whose relationships are based on conditional belief.

Re: In which I lose my best friend

Can you imagine Jesus pitching a fit and then never speaking to someone again over a difference in religious opinion? But "good Christians" yup, they will shun you like you have leprosy. Just remember, it's fear. They are afraid of really finding out. Satan is a good red herring. I think we were al...

Re: We can't criticize everything

As a middle school teacher (now retired) ... I'm so jealous. I'm a middle school teacher on the edge of "burnout." I envy your retirement. Must search for more positives!!! I only have a year or two left. That light is sometimes visible. I try to think of positives with the church. I can really onl...

Wow. Thank you. I'm so happy for you, and so sorry for all you had to endure. I don't say much here on NOM, but I really enjoy following your posts. You and your family make me feel welcome and comfortable. That says a lot as I have awful anxiety in social situations. It's a rare thing when I feel I...

Re: Both sides pretending

I pretend for family. I don't think my true status would shock anyone. In my experience, if you act the part, that's what matters. People are busy; why take on another problem if all appears to be "normal?" I don't think it's laziness (maybe sometimes), but we all know that church responsibility get...

Re: Sunday morning NOMfrence

I climbed Shasta 15 years ago. Mormons sure do like their miracles, whether the miracle is positive or not. I call it chance, luck, and unpredictable.
Equal access to these miracles? Since when?

I avoided both sessions and went to visit TBM family later that afternoon. I didn't know that I walked into the beginning of PH meeting, and got to listen. What a fun time. Hahaha. I probably deserve it. Now I'm sitting here for Sunday morning session. I'm trying to come up with a scheme to escape b...

Re: What Would They Masturbate To?

Masturbation leads to homosexuality. Don't you remember? It's in The Miracle of Forgiveness; if a prophet said so, it must be true. So why is the LGBT community a minority? There's the proof that only a minority of people do....that....thang.
