Re: A quick update

Red, ditto to the above. You have been an awesome contributor to this board and we will miss you. Hopefully you can check in frequently. Glad to hear your wife has seen the "light". I will have to listen to more of that podcast and see if it might interest my wife who is still 110% in :cry:

Re: Since we don’t have moderators

Thanks Alas for bringing this topic to our attention. I have heard this before but it's good to get a reminder and especially from someone who has had a lot of experience with it. In our last "talk" I told her that I don't think I could believe in the church again because there were too many issues ...

Re: Pope, Gay blessing, Conversion opportunity

Hey Mayan, I don't think Moksha was saying that all saints are anti-lgbt. I think he was just poking fun at the church because of what Angel listed and I would add the musket speech given by Holland. Can't we all just get along? Namaste

Re: Replacing the New Order Mormon

I was active on NOM for a long, long time - under a different username for many years, and then after doxxing myself like an idiot one Halloween unmasking, in 2016 had to switch to my present username. When I first joined NOM, the "middle way" really was the ethos. I was perhaps not as patient with...

Re: The most correct book....

Recently my mom wanted me to listen to the following podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rECiIc5Ctak. You will probably cringe alot throughout like I did if you listen to it. I told my mom that I would listen to that if she would listen to one of the Mormon stories episodes with Mike on the bom...

Re: Went to church today (Dec 24th) and …

I attended also. I was grateful it was only one hour. My son joined the combined primary and choir number that they did. One guy was asked to bear his testimony and it was the traditional "I know the church is true--blar blar blar". It's kind of interesting. I haven't attended EQ for a long time. So...

Re: Mormon Missions ARE Human Trafficking

I also think missionaries get really good at finding the miracles, or learning how to confirm biases and exaggerate the feelings and promptings they get, while others who are certainly no less spiritual think they are doing something wrong when they're just not getting those same miracles and posit...

Re: Garments always hanging out and it drives me nuts

Yeah, I bought the brief style for shorts but they're too tight. The boxer style's waistband is too tight also. The top is too hot during the day so I usually ditch it when I get to work. I agree with RR. It would be better in bed without them ;) Maybe that could be another marketing slogan--multipl...

Interesting. Christians actually acting like Christians. Good for them. Apart from having a strange name, I'd never given them much thought.

Quakerism

I went to a business conference in Philadelphia over the weekend. This is also where I served my mission and went to grad school. I visited the historical district and in particular the historic Quaker church and museum. Here is a link https://www.historicasmh.org/ . I was impressed with how this ch...

Re: Welcome to the Tuesday Podcast Club!

I wonder if RR suggested this because I have been struggling with being honest with my wife and kids about some things--such as drinking coffee, watching R rated movies and considering trying alcohol. Anyway, I listened to this podcast and it makes me wonder if some of us who have lost our faith do ...

Re: Lying

Not to take away from Alas's sound advice, but if you want to do something bad enough you will do it, and deal with the consequences. You want to try beer but don't want to do it behind her back. So you bring it up, she recoils. She asks you never to do it. You don't. Is your marriage really better...

Re: How do you get your spouse to see that people can still be good after leaving the church?

I agree with RR, that feminist issues make more women leave than historical issues. So, get a copy of In Sacred Loneliness, and leave it lying around. The Ghost of Polygamy is another. Bring up the issues. Get on Exponent II if you need information. Take her to see the Barbie movie, and discuss how...

I think it depends on your TBM spouse.

That caused her more cogdis and she told me she didn't want to kn...
