Re: Anyone a former bishop or stake pres?

I think the only time the SCMC ever send anything to a Bishop if it is a current issue that has reached public knowledge, like a person in the newspaper teaching false doctrine. Any sins confessed to a bishop are NEVER written down unless they reach the level of needed disciplinary action, and then ...

Latest Netflix (Atypical, Life After)

I just finished two great shows on Netflix. Life After. A depressingly funny show with Ricky Gervais. After Life follows Tony, whose life is upended after his wife dies from breast cancer. He contemplates suicide, but instead decides to live long enough to punish the world for his wife's death by sa...

Re: Mormon St. Peters/Vatican renewal - plans pending

I remember reading a SF story, maybe by Card, that talked of a post-apocalyptic world, and the Great Salt Lake was great again. They were in a boat, and were diving down and saw the SL Temple completely underwater. Does anybody else remember that book? I believe it was an anthology.

Re: Peer pressure: seminary

With recent studies showing teenagers need more sleep, and their bodies are pre-dispositioned to go to sleep late and wake up late, schools are starting to start later and later. California has a bill pending that would require high schools to start no earlier than 8:30. You might say great, seminar...

Re: Real estate offer

It they don't use the empty building, the state will start charging property taxes since it is not being used as a church. They have 1-3 years (different in every state). I'm sure Utah does NOT have this, but here in California, they sell the old building in a few years to avoid paying the taxes.

Re: General Konference Predictions

Lots of “unintended consequences” turning Stake Centers into part time chapels. Nobody is going to want to get married in a stake center! So they will have to also stop doing weddings in temples (rumor number 7.b) Then there is the problem of staffing the big temples they have now. They are always b...

Re: Just got back from the new endowment Powerpoint presentation

I’m just finishing up Friedman’s book “Who Wrote the Bible”. Turns out Elohim and YHWH (Jehovah) are THE SAME PERSON! They are from different sources for the Torah (Pentateuch). The E source used Elohim for God, and the J source used Jehovah, which gets translated to LORD most of the time in the KJV...

Re: Missionary name badges

Maybe I dodged a bullet, but we were not allowed to where name tags in Chile in the mid 1970's. It had something to do with the preceding regime (Allende) and uniforms his followers wore. Seemed they had a similar name tag, and with the new Military Dictatorship of Pinochet, after having killed Alle...

My discovery about coffee is that I'm kinda ADHD but I can focus much better with a belly full of brew. I would have expected the opposite.
There was a lady on NOM years ago that had ADHD. Her Dr perscribed coffee, and she said is much better drinking the coffee that the drugs she was on.

Re: Resign or Get Ex’d

Bill Reel's court was last night. He did an IOT interview this morning, and said that he went through a list of problems in the church, and saw more than one High Councilman's shelf start to crack. So you could go to the court, and try to bring several out with you!

Is it also possible the Stake Pres is attempting to keep a close eye on you? Or perhaps thinking this might spark re-conversion?

Re: Bishopric Brother Scheduled to Teach Chastity to Beehives

Yes, the boys may get the same lesson, even with more detail, but is it given by a WOMAN? Just picture that for a moment, a woman giving the lesson, and you'll see why a man giving it to girls is so wrong.
