Re: Bill Reel--Disciplinary Court is Imminent

I have gone through various scenarios in my head about showing up for church courts. I'm thinking the Jeremy Runnels method is best, except I wouldn't bother listening to charges, just let everyone get dressed up in Sunday best, drive to the stake center, gather round the HC table, opening prayer, ...

Re: Service missions now an option whilst living at home

I know of at least one kid who has already done a "service" mission from home. Maybe they were part of the pilot program? It doesn't seem to really be about doing much that actually benefits the "missionaries", but just a way to benefit the church, and make some of the "bad" statistics about early r...

Re: Shoot the messenger

If they shoot the internet, is it going to go away? Nope! Mr. Gore would never let that happen. It doesn't matter how many people they throw overboard, the good ship Zion-mc-boaty-face is sinking. I doubt it will ever go completely under, but the number of folks who stay in the boat will continue to...

Re: Temple Clothes

But I still like to snicker when all the priesthood is communing with Goddesses of earth and water during the endowment. :lol: Honestly, the Wiccan version is infinitely more palatable. Hey COB researchers lurking on NOM, it's weird eh? Just plain weird. Please let Russell know and tell h to sleep ...

Re: Temple Clothes

The guy who founded Wicca, Gerald Garnder, was a 3rd degree Mason. Wicca uses the same hand symbols as we use in the temple. :shock: Oh, come on now. You're not really surprised or shocked are you Hagoth? I guarantee you that apologists are going to tell you that Gardner stole the hand symbols from...

Re: How did I believe this?

Thoughts on how the rest of you started out believing and what was the first crack? First crack? Basically: Waking up to reality and realizing: I've checked all the boxes, and lived mormon ism as best I can, and it doesn't live up to it's promises. It: Just. Doesn't. Work. I kept going through the ...

So... Mormon-Inc. has become an expert on forgeries eh?

Re: Pedogamy

I am a direct descendant of a union just like those mentioned in the linked article.

I wonder why my parents and relatives never mentioned that fact while telling all of the "legends" about my G-G-Grandfather? :|

Re: NPR broadcast this Saturday

A weird thing happened to me when Elna was talking about how growing up in the church has ruined her sex life because of the tally of sins-second-only-to-murder that is always running in her head. The TBM on my shoulder started yelling, "well good! That's how it's supposed to be. Repent and come ba...

Re: The other shoe drops for Sam Young

If Sam really wanted to push it, he could basically say that since they have never given him anything in writing, he has no proof he has actually been removed from the church and is still a member in good standing. The interaction in this thread is only in regard to Sam's "Appeal" to the first pres...

Re: Connection to Christianity Waning...

My belief in any sort of interventionist, loving "heavenly parent" (and thus my belief in Christianity) crumbled to dust in the middle of teaching 12-year-old's about the "Plan of Happiness." One of those fleeting little light-bulb moments when I realized: I'm nowhere near the perfect parent, but I ...

Re: Marriage Vows

I'd love to re-up marriage vows with my siggy other, since the polygamist temple ceremony has literally nothing to do with vows between two people.

Thanks to LDS-Inc. it seems more likely that it will end up in divorce vows. :x
