Re: Supporting our own

Finished the third one today. Just wanted to comment on how much I'm enjoying these. The analysis is excellent and I really appreciate the care that you use to stick with credible sources. I like to make my arguments based on solid sources instead of the more sensational stuff. It may be interesting...

Re: Does Wilcox think he has an answer?

In the tumult surrounding the odious things said by Brad Wilcox, I'm curious Does anyone think he has an answer to the question, "Why would God keep the priesthood from the world until 1829?" I would be curious to hear how he finishes his very offensive thought. Yeah, I was thinking about why he wo...

Re: How do those of you in mixed faith marriages raise your kids?

We came to the compromise that my daughter goes to seminary, but the activities are optional. My reasoning is that she can hear the most sympathetic version of Mormon history and doctrine and if she still decides to leave the church, it won't be because she didn't understand the choice. DW is good w...

Re: Temple changes

Wife went to the temple yesterday. She said it was much shorter, like an hour and 15 minutes (I think). She said that they cut out a lot of the repetition (wouldn't expound, but I think they cut out a lot of the "we will go down" repetition). Of course, not doing all the individual token giving stuf...

Re: Problems interacting with normal people as a family...

Yeah there's just no way to have this conversation that doesn't end poorly... and it's really frustrating because these are super nice people and I'm stuck in this rut where I can't really invite my wife to come with or it's so awkward it's not worth it, or I do invite her and have her mad at me fo...

Re: Who’s next on the excommunication list?

RFM - god, if that ever happens I would love to listen to a recording of that council. The lengths that they went to to prevent Natasha from recording anything to me demonstrates just how damaging these recordings are and how fearful the church is of them. They know they don't have good answers. Nat...

Re: Church updates handbook.

It also means you can divide wards and create new ones and news stakes to artificially bloat the growth numbers. Wow, yeah, you're right about that. They have been doing this in our area with disastrous results. 7 wards that were semi-solid are now 10 struggling units, but on paper it looks great! ...

Re: The 2020 numbers

A huge chunk of convert baptisms each year is 9 year olds. A large chunk of member of record baptisms normally comes from inactive 8 year olds. These two groups where a lot of baptisms come from were affected by Covid. Yeah, totally agree with this. Most of our strategy on my mission was to baptize...

Re: What are you doing to protect your family against the virus?

DW and I got our first dose as soon as Phase 4 opened up last week. Ate a large 5 Guys burger afterward. Side effects have been a sore arm and mild stomach upset.

Re: Doubters are lazy learners!!!!!

God that talk pissed me off. So I just had a 2+ hour post conference discussion with DW --again-- about my issues with the church and how it affects our kid. It is EXHAUSTING!!! I know so much more about the history and doctrines of the church from reading copious amounts of material but I'm the laz...
