So you made it to the Celestial Kingdom, and you look around, no laughter and no smiles?

He just couldn’t stay home. I have someone quite similar in my home too alas. Not out and about "every" day, but close. And another who's working for the government in an office where they should know better, but they don't wear masks in the office. Those are much higher risks than I like to think ...

It feels like the church needs to compete with the restaurants and businesses.
Hmmm... Methinks there's a pretty good answer to "why open" right there at the end of that sentence: "The Church" is not actually a church.

Re: Opening Up Church Again

Yay! Lots of people who don't really care meeting together to share Sa-Corona-Ment! I'm glad I won't be going in one of those filthy "ward houses" at any point in the future, though way too many of my neighbors will be dabbling in that crowd, and I have a house-mate that doesn't seem to care, so we'...

Re: Horrifying Initiatory Story on Reddit

My Initiatory experience wasn't awful - but it wasn't comfortable either. I got to deal with the naked-under-the-poncho creepiness, but that was actually something that my parents "warned" me about, so it wasn't a complete surprise. I never went back and did proxy Initiatory's. Now... Togas, "fig" l...

Re: Is The ANY record of Prophecy About Corona?

People who try to associate the old food storage with the new pandemic are really reaching. I know at least one lady who will tell you the focus on food storage never stopped, it just went to individual classes (Relief Society?) Supposedly not as much focus from "the pulpit" but focus all the same....

Re: LDS Church proposes new community near future Tooele Valley Temple

What do you get if you cross a religion with a real estate developer for $200 Alex. Yup. The first line of the article makes me giggle/cringe all at the same time: Real estate developers for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints... Why does a " Church " need or employ " Real Estate Develo...

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

I have used this quote from the Dalai Lama: "Just because I'm not on the same path as you, doesn't mean I'm lost." That's one I need to remember. Let's do this fluffy brain. OK, my fluffy brain will probably forget, so I'm going to type it into my list of "enlightenment notes." Maybe the fluffy bra...

Re: UT.gov: Back to Church RMN: Not Yet

It's possible they actually, you know, care. I think they care most about the people they perceive as loyal. But I do think they care. Yeahl, it's " possible " they actually care. My confirmation bias via observation of their actions from the outside tells me that they care more about their Corpora...

Re: A one-liner that captures your disaffection

Now that the thread has been bumped.

I've heard and made up lots of one-liners over the years, some "funny," some "polite" so as to not hurt believers feelings; But honestly, at this point, I hope with most folks I can just cut to the chase and say:

The church is not true.

Re: UT.gov: Back to Church RMN: Not Yet

I'm personally shocked that Rusty is keeping his finger on the "pause" button.

He/They actually made a decision that should end up being good for humanity in general on their own without any outside force (that I know of.)

Their decisions are usually just good for their Corporation™.

Ah.. Brodie. When I was in the throes of my entire world-view crashing, I decided I would attempt to study "both sides" so I started reading Rough Stone Rolling. RSR drove me nuts. As I remember, RSR was very in-depth, but very dry & boring. Bushman brings up all the issues, in depth, gives some a l...

I've tracked confirmed cases and deaths in my state and the numbers are still rising exponentially. Of course we took that as a sign to open back up for business.
