Mrs. 2bizE has my back

I had a really good talk with Mrs. 2bizE last night. She is the love of my life. We have a bunch of kids together and have been married for more than 20 years. I continue to slowly express my NOM beliefs. She is slowly becoming disaffected with the church. She despises the November policy. The only ...

Re: A History of the BYU Honor Code

I finally read the entire article. It made me proud. Not for the honor code, but that there are so many NOMs at BYU. It was the students who started the honor code. In 1967, the president of BYU took it from the students and then started to implement its Taliban-like regime. BYU even wanted to make ...

Re: What improvements would you want for church?

Changes to music would be a great improvement. I would like to see other musical instruments used including the guitar. If you have ever been to church in a foreign country, Mexico for example, the church has the standard pianos, but few, if anyone, can play them. On the other hand, many could play ...

Re: A Broken Heart = Church Broke

It’s an unhealthy culture that accepts and encourages such nonsense as “church broke” members. To me, it’s closely related to the notion of an Abrahamic test, in which the person tested is expected to violate their innate moral sense and simply obey the higher authority. Another anecdotal but relat...

Re: Expensive kitchens no??

Do we have facility managers in the U.S.? In the US, the church is non union, so the members or local leaders do all the work cleaning and caring for the church buildings?
How does this work if we want to renovate the place the EQ meets to look more like a man cave?

Re: Was JS the only person who claimed to use seer stones?

Apparently, back in the day, everyone was using one of these stones. The essay even talks about this. "The other instrument, which Joseph Smith discovered in the ground years before he retrieved the gold plates, was a small oval stone, or “seer stone.”18 As a young man during the 1820s, Joseph Smith...

Re: DD shot her first mule deer buck

This is an exciting story. Congratulations to your DD.
I remember a lesson from YM, where my leader went hunting birds on Sunday and accidentally shot his dog. He was convinced it was from hunting on the Sabbath. Good to hear that myth is busted.

Re: How do you forgive?

Thank you for your thoughts Jinx. That is exactly how I feel. I have been able to forgive people in my life, it I cannot get past being deceived by the church. This is no different a deception than Madoff and his financial scheme. I cannot move on because I cannot forgive.

Re: Konfession Time!

I discovered that I love iced tea. No one knows of my disaffection (DW a little, but not about the tea) so I keep it (the disaffection and the tea) totally under the radar. Of course, the WoW says hot drinks, and you can't get much more opposite of a hot drink than iced tea. Anyway, when I go to a ...

Re: SM talk topics correlated

Every time I have seen leader changes I hear this same dogma. How important the priesthood is. How leaders are called. There is always a big story about how inspired the leader was to call the new leader. How through fasting and prayer and great coincidence the new leader was recommended. Another po...

What improvements would you want for church?

So, I don't attend church every week, but do 3/4 Sundays roughly. I have more recently tried to listen more intently in SM. Not really for the message, but out of respect for the poor saps, my friends, who have been asked to speak. Sometimes, I'm not too involved. I almost always search NOM. I have ...

An encounter on an airline

A few weeks ago I was on a flight back to SLC where a young woman sat next to me. She wore a long dress and white prayer covering on her head. She was headed with a group of young men and women from her church to Tremonton, Utah. I did not ask her religion specifically, but believe her to be Mennoni...
