Re: Running out of post power--and interest...

Being out and away from the Morcor, I like to come here for updates on the slow demise of the church. Some of the topics discussed aren't all that close to my heart so I don't comment on them when I feel I have little to offer. About six weeks ago I was involved in a fairly traumatic horse accident...

Re: The Letter.

I am sorry. I like your idea of saying you distanced yourself for mental health. Something like “thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and feelings with me. After careful consideration, I needed to distance myself from Mormonism due to my personal beliefs not aligning with their past ...

Re: Julie Rowe got ex'ed

Does anyone know what pushed LDS inc over the edge w/ her? So what I know is: years ago she made a bunch of end of days predictions, people followed her and even cashed in their 401ks to buy—whateverthehell?? it was she said to buy/do, none of her prophecies came true, she started writing weird nons...

Re: church opposition to the Equality Act

I am wondering if this is about LDS Inc 1-having to marry gays 2-or getting in trouble for discriminating against gays/losing tax exempt status/being forced to disclose financials. (once they have to disclose, IMO that will be the end of the “church” and they’ll just have their real estate business.)

Worth sharing..Response to Nelson’s talk

This is really good, but reading it made me angry (again). Pres Nelson is a truly evil person, and in no way a representative of Christ.

Re: General NOMfrence Sunday Afternoon!!!

After hearing what Nelson said about being a perfect parent and how much he hurt families, can we revise his points? -100,000 for not believing in the New Testament, a loving God, or foegiveness. Also, for bragging anout himself—basically no humility or compassion.

Re: Nelson's Scorched Earth Policy

Wow. Thanks Anon. What a douchebag... “I am and have always been a perfect parent, but if your kids leave mormonism you will never see them after this life.” I know it’s all BS but what about heartbroken TBM parents who lost a rebellious teen to a car accident or whatever?

Re: Nelson's Scorched Earth Policy

Can someone pls give a brief description of what Nelson said? I didn’t watch and no one said anything about his talk here except for stupid temple renovation BS. What did he say? Something about apostates/people who lose faith?

Re: Intervention

Are you going to set a boundary about talking about the church after this? My mother-in-law did something equally manipulative one time, and I told her it was the last time we would ever talk about the church. Period. I know she's still not happy we left, but we don't talk about it. I'm a grown adu...

Re: General NOMfrence Saturday Morning!!!!

I don’t know how to scroll back to the beginning for quotes, so what’s a FSOY??? (as scripture now?)

And no coffee yet? This conference is a rip off.
