Nelson Gets Vaccinated

Okay, so my obsession with all things American election-related is almost over, and back to Mormonism. Apparently, Pres. Nelson and everyone over 70 of the General Authorities was vaccinated today: https://www.deseret.com/faith/2021/1/19/22238767/latter-day-saint-church-leaders-vaccinated-urge-membe...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I'm going to make my last post on Donald J Trump, and it's simply this.

Thank you Donald, the last few months you have managed to make me obsess about something other than Mormonism. Thank you very much.

That is all.

Re: What is Parker?

Now this has taken an interesting twist, we've gone from "I've never seen violence on Parler," to "well there is violence but it's not that bad," to "what about antifa violence?" That's quite an about face. And it kind of reveals where you are. And don't worry. You've only seen 50 videos of this stu...

Re: What is Parker?

So I was pretty sure I was done with this conversation, until a friend sent me this: https://projects.propublica.org/parler-capitol-videos/ Apparently, some eager beaver over at Propublica managed to download every video about the Jan 6 insurrection that was downloaded at Parler before the site went...

Re: What is Parker?

But I just wanted to make sure that it was about the violence and the hate that you support this violation of our civil rights. I was on Parker. I never sad or hurt anything hateful. I have been hated on a lot on both Twitter and Facebook. Making excuses for your Nazi and fascist behavior is no dif...

Re: What is Parker?

Parler has still not come back online. I really would enjoy others chiming in on this. Are you guys okay that an entire social media platform has been shut down because another company didn't like who they were hosting? Not only am I in favour of it, maybe if they shut the damn thing down before Ja...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

A lot of this is easily explained. The bellwether counties - what does it matter? What does it matter? I can believe things but it doesn't make it reality? For thousands of years Western Christian civilization believe that for Earth have been created in the six days and was about 6,000 years old. W...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Sorry. You seem pretty well informed. Actually I did not watch all of those things. I tried to, but they seem like farces in their own way. They seem like sideshows. Let's start with some of the hard evidence. Explain to me the bellwether counties? Why was Trump winning going to bed that night, but...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

I know you don't want to believe this. So me trying to explain it is relatively irrelevant. I have seen it and I believe it. I wasn't asking anyone else to simply believe this stuff, I wanted an investigation. Those investigations have been blocked or denied. There has been two investigations that ...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Anyway, when I heard that the Republican poll watchers turned away or kicked out of the counting areas, they knew something was a mess. Because it was in those very same spots that the questionable numbers appeared. But you dismissed it as so-called poll watchers because someone told you that they ...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

In fact, the other night I posted on my personal FB page that as a SAHM in a pandemic I’ve had a lot of free time and spent countless hours researching fraud claims instead of cleaning house. I recommended the 60 Minutes interview of the GA officials that had just been on tv. I begged them, If they...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

Sure, 74 million voted for Trump but let's not be so quick to simply write off the 81 million of us who voted otherwise (plus a shout out to the Kanye voters!). It might start to dawn on them why we are so upset that a mob of MAGA people smashed up our capitol with the intent of stopping our votes ...

Re: Keeping up with Trump

This has been an interesting thread, and I've been hesitant to join it. Part of it is that I'm Canadian, and technically it has nothing to do with me. But I've also spent HOURS of my life watching this stuff, I'm pretty addicted to it, simply because it's a pandemic, the kids are in school, and I li...

Re: Kwaku, FAIRMomon, and terminating Dehlin

If you think of apologetics as lying, then these new FAIRMormon Kwaku videos are basically hiring a gang of carnival barkers to do the lying. It is thought that carnival barkers can be very effective with Mormon youth who have never been exposed to FAIR Mormon . TITS could be the same thing. FAIR h...

Re: Jana Riess nails the reason my full tithe isn't to LDS

To me, here's the key sentence from Jana, on when people will stop paying their tithing: "Frankly, it’s not important whether I continue to hold a temple recommend or not." Once that Rubicon has been crossed, really, what else are you paying tithing for? It's the people who are stuck paying protecti...

Re: To share your doubts with your children or not, that is the question

It took me many, many years to be fully open with my kids about what I think. And even now, they don't fully know HOW much I know, and what I really, really think about a variety of church topics. But they all know I'm not a fully committed believer in the fundamentalist sense of my spouse, I have v...

Re: Attending my Daughter's Temple Wedding?

When I still had a recommend I looked at it this way: it's my temple as much as anybody else's. I paid a hefty amount to build these things and to buy the privilege of attending, I can go and sit there and feel and think about whatever I want. Even when my wife knew I didn't believe any of it she a...

And a general comment; most are pretty short, and I've corrected some for grammar and spelling. It's really odd how QAnon people can't spell. By far the one that made me la...
