Re: The Church's Statement on the AP Arizona Abuse Story

I never have thought about it before, but thanks to Angel and alas, I now have some clarity of thinking about how much the church does not support victims. At all. Old me would have pointed to the fact that as bishop of course I helped victims. I met with several, we had good LDS services people whe...

Re: Is Bishop really a 40 hour a week calling?

Is the Bishop really spending 40 hours a week doing church work? I may not be a typical bishop, but here's my schedule for the past year.... Sundays: 6 ~ 10 hours depending meetings, phone calls, interviews, and visits Mondays: off Tuesdays: 2-4 hours (including prep, giving rides, and cleanup) YM/...

The Church's Statement on the AP Arizona Abuse Story

I only commented briefly on one of the posts here about the breaking abuse story, but it was only this morning that I saw the church's statement on the whole sordid tale. And today I am absolutely seeing red. Absolutely f@#$ing enraged. Here's the quote that got me seething: The help line is instrum...

Re: Holy Fetch! (Update…)

While things are moving slow today, we both hold out that “the right to change minds” exists. I don't know how to express how wise this sentiment is. That slows everything down, takes time to process new ideas and thought processes, and holds out a safety net to return to familiar ideas in case thi...

Re: Pope n' Prophet

A lot of people are saying it's too little, too late. Count me as one of those people.

Why is child sexual abuse happenin...

Re: Husband accepted Primary calling behind my back!

He told me that he made a conscious decision to hide it from me. I don't think that's okay. And....that's the point. It's clearly about the calling, but not about the calling at the same time. It's about not communicating, and doing something the other person is not happy about, and hiding it. Does...

The hate at what you guys came after this President is really just shameful. I personally observed Joe Biden doing dirty dealings with Arabs when he was a senator for Delaware. I don't trust him. I don't like him. But I don't hate him. You guys just have hate. I don't hate Satan as much as you guys...

Re: Elder's Quorum Service Coordinator? (Calling offered to me)

That sounds...awful. Service is great, but co-ordinating service with a bunch of people who don't really want to do it? Pass. You'll just end up doing everything yourself, which sucks big time. No is good. I've only turned down one calling in my life, believe it or not, and that was several years ag...

I appreciate that you put the site link for us to vote for this project, Angel. I couldn't find it from reddit, and then you posted it here and so I was able to give it my vote! And in return, I will link to the trailer for the film here, as I managed to find that on youtube: https://youtu.be/YpzAs7...

Spent some time as a financial clerk and that was when I first learned that all tithing money collected in Canada went directly to Salt Lake. At least that’s what I was told.
