Re: RMN meets with NZ prime minister

While I generally agree with the majority of your post NBI, I'm not so sure about this statement: But Prime Minister Ardern gets a Book of Mormon, solely because of her history with the Church, and ask yourself why? Do they really think it will lead her back to the Church? Of course not, President N...

Re: Maybe it’d be nice if everyone posted a very short intro who they are

Hello, my name is What-The-Fluff? And I'm recovering from more than half a lifetime of activity in TCoJCoLDS. (Formally known as the MORmON church.) I was born the middle child of goodly, and very indoctrinated parents. I diligently checked off all of the boxes on the MORmON checklist: Church attend...

Re: Nihilism

The concept of reincarnation appeals to me, but there is no evidence for it. Oh, I'm not saying there's any evidence for reincarnation, just like there is no solid evidence for any other version of an afterlife. I'm saying that the reincarnation version of an afterlife that us humans have made up a...

Re: Nihilism

I am interested to hear any processing of this type of concept from whatever angle. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. I personally like Roger's thoughts on the subject. For me, losing the belief in a dude with a giant white beard wearing a toga livin...

Re: D&C 132 - Celestial Kingdom loophole?

"Sealed by the Holy Spirit of promise" is MORmON-code for the second anointing. (For those in "the know.") If you aren't part of the "in crowd" who's pays enough bucks, and has the right connections, you don't get a golden ticket/pass to Super VIP Heaven. Since most believers don't even know about ...

Re: McDonalds, an observation

Perhaps you should have your daughter research the number of fancy soft drink stores in the Utah area. Places like "Swig" and "Soadalicious" are selling caronated sugar water with excessive flavorings. This is basically a way to fastrack diabetes. But it's legal under the Word of Wisdom, unlike cof...

I've been really into politics on Twitter the last 7 years now, and this comes up more than you'd think... but it is highly controversial for obvious reasons so it hasn't gone anywhere yet. But with the way that the LGBT movement has become so much more accepted, I could see this being a step that ...

And "windows" in both the top and bottom of the barrel - you know, for when he got tossed upside-down, gravity was somehow suspended, and he couldn't tell which way was up?

Re: Couples Married Civilly Now Authorized for Immediate Temple Marriage

JTG, that's how I interpreted at first. But, essentially you could be sealed in the temple the day after your civil wedding even if having sexual relations with your partner kept you from having the one and only true ceremony in the temple. OK, but... How is a couple going to get an interview with ...

Re: One More Please

I don't know if I could see the church dropping garments easily because they are a money maker for the church. If they drop garnets for everyday use and only require them in the temple, sales would go though the floor. With them would go the profit from Beehive clothing. Considering in the past, wh...

I'm sure TACO J has it's own internal council attorney's who work directly for the Corporation™. I'm not sure exactly what those attorneys would do, but I'm sure they exist. I'm also sure they wouldn't work for anyone else. Kirton|McConkie is an "independent" law firm, and you can hire them to repre...

I was just unaware that there were any political rumblings about it. Just goes to show again, the REAL "best way" to get Elohim to change his mind is to hit his corporation in the pocket book, or change the law, or both. (See LD$-Inc.'s "revelation" to "stop" practicing polygamy.) I've been really ...

I could be wrong, but we've been hearing for a few years now that the Mormon church would be taking steps to getting out of marriages altogether to avoid this issue, and we're seeing the beginning of that now.
