Re: Temple changes

While Monson was busy wiggling his ears and wondering what day it was the church was challenged from every direction. Hahaha. Makes me think of Hermey from Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer. "Wiggling his ears..." I would consider going back IF they did away with all the interactive stuff, and provided ...

Re: Struggling...A Lot

Wow! So many wonderful responses! Thank you so much everyone, it means a lot to me. I don't have time to respond to all of them right now, but just checking in to say I'm doing OK. I'm meeting with the bishop next Sunday and will be brief about needing to be released. Today will likely be my last l...

Re: Happy I'm Sick!

:P Perhaps Karma is real. I just returned (now reporting) from my real life in Ohio. Coffee at the house, Sunday a regular day, no worship or prayers to a meany old God (that for some reason has decided to be less condescending to women in the temple :?:, which I'm sure changes things for all us wom...

Happy I'm Sick!

How odd to be happy I feel like crap. I haven't had a cold/flu in many years, but yesterday I was hit pretty hard. The bonus is, I have a true excuse to skip church. I don't want to spread this joy of germs. I did spread it last night at the Christmas party. Man this ward is hurting for membership. ...

Oh Boy, I Get to GO BACK!!

I have not been to church since 2011. I am temporarily living with my dad and get to play pretend mormon. Yesterday, I bought a skirt and dress so I can go to church. Yippie. I hope those PH boys are washing their hands so I can eat broken bread unworthily, but without the bacteria/cooties that come...

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...

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...

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?
