Re: Grrrrrrrrr

Anyone know where I can get a mask with little tapirs on it? I might go back if I had one like that to wear. :D

Any other ideas for a NOM themed mask to help us recognize each other out there in the wild when, or if, we are forced back to the flock?

Re: Headache Remedies and Mormons

I have known people who refused to take any aspirin that contained caffeine. On the other hand, I have known Mormons who thought nothing of taking no-doze when studying for a test or driving long distance. They looked down on their roommates who drank coffee for the all night study sessions, but th...

Re: Would the church ever change the name of BYU...?

By calling it BYU, the “Y”, or even Brigham Young University, we are giving Satan another victory. We need to return to the name originally given by the Lord, to the prophet, and refer to it as, Even the Brigham Young Academy. This pleases the founder. On an interesting side note, Young broke the sc...

Re: Four-year seminary graduation required for foreign missions

I was told that there are some foreign countries that will only allow missionaries to preach publicly that have completed a seminary training program before they can be religious ministers in their country. Don’t know if that’s true or not, but does make some sense. Little do they realize that LDS s...

Re: "We don't say that person is gay..." - I'm furious about labeling

Just to help Hathaway and Oaks out here, here are a few other labels that we probably shouldn’t use. 1. We don’t say someone is a “full tithe payer”, we say that person who is financing the ETCOJCOLDS 2. We don’t say someone is a “partial tithe payer”, we say that person still has to compromise thei...

Re: Green tea is officially bad for you, against WoW

I sure wish they would have clarified which mild barley drinks are good for us; I wouldn’t want any youth thinking that a mild barley drink (aka 3.2 beer) is actually listed as being approved there in verse 17. Guess it’s best to just keep the youth drinking all those Red Bull’s, Rockstars, and Mons...

Re: Secret combinations

I think we should have a small key chain made in the shape of a kinder hook plate with an impression of a tapir on one side and the words “new order Mormon” in the Deseret alphabet on the reverse side. People could use it for their keys, as a zipper pull, hang it from the rear view mirror, or as a d...

Re: Gospel Topics Essay on Super Bowl XLII

Ah this new “defining doctrine” needs some apocryphal stories now to support it.

After that, any time a family member touched the jersey before playin...

Re: Your Random LDS Questions

Here is random question. If Jesus could come down and atone for all persons, past present and future with one act, why can’t he (or someone already on earth like RMN) just be baptized, for and in behalf of, all those who are dead, and be done with it in one shot? Seems like it could work for the oth...

Re: Joel Osteen and others

I’ve listened to Joel several times on the radio. I enjoy many of his sermons, but I have a hard time watching him on the TV as it looks very fake and disingenuous. Also, I don’t like that he lives a rock star life. However, he does spread a positive outlook on life and hope for something better, be...

It's funny how long ago Mormons assume that was. I have to wonder, how different were mild barley drinks - really? How different was the whiskey ol' Brigham was producing than a modern whiskey?
