Re: Airing the Restored Laundry List

So stupid lists aside, I wish I could give this talk. I would give Bednar the middle finger by talking about how we can’t let all the silly lists of things we THINK we need to do get in the way of ACTUALLY following Jesus. Only use NT scriptures and say what Jesus wants us to do. . Jesus said unto h...

Umm, ok Russ & co., I will listen for a minute. If the black skin isn’t really black skin, and fair or light skin isn’t really light skin, and a curse of black skin really isn’t a curse, then:
what. EXACTLY. is. it?

Re: New RFM Podcast--Hundred Billion Dollar Baby

Guys, this is a MUST listen. Consig & Bill, you knocked it way out of the ballpark. Thank you. So many excellent points were made that have been running through my mind, but articulated and researched so much better than I ever could have.
Just go listen everyone!

Re: On losing your temple recommend

Hagoth, sorry for both you and your wife that you are facing losing temple time together. The tithing should be a non issue since you are not working (correct?) and are a student. You just say you pay 0 on 0. And also because 100 billion dollars. Honestly, if I ever had to sit through tithing settle...

Re: Whistle Blower Files IRS Complaint

Well, looks like they have taken down the article where Andersen states “we are not a wealthy people” or at least the quote. I had bookmarked it: https://news-zw.churchofjesuschrist.org/ but it goes to a bunch of articles now. And the one I found that mentions mtng w/ Zimbabwe VP just says how great...

Re: Mission rules are now just suggestions.

I wonder if this is a response to the fact that 50% of returned missionaries are leaving the church or becoming inactive or that 1/3 or missionaries come home early, mostly for mental health reasons and for "health" reasons that are often cover stories for underlying depression or anxiety. I also w...

Re: Baby Steps

I love how your husband basically admitted Mormon church sucks. I would be willing to bet he will be secretly jealous of your freedom, and will gradually begin joining you on skipping out. Maybe an hour here and there and even whole Sundays at times :o.

Re: How to launder your G’s...

This is an epic post RR. As mentioned by Corsair, I especially love the part about hiring your own firm to audit yourself and then report to your investors that all is well. How do they get away with this in 2019???? (And how are they still a tax exempt organization?)

Re: Another big Joseph Smith blow out?

With the announcement of a conference like "never before" planned for April it seems we may be being set up for a "Let's all worship Joseph" year again. The First vision bicentennial is just an excuse maybe? And here I thought leadership had learned their lesson years back when they stuck Joseph on...

Thanks for the replies. I cannot get over how ridiculous this is. Like I mentioned, I could maybe understand for small branches, but we’re in Az. In the MorCor, there are usually plenty of men to staff these positions. Do bishops now have to teach and plan Sunday lessons?? And weekly activities?? Ho...

Wow. So God hates gays, but Russ loves them and has undying compassion for them. So he begged and begged God to reverse the hateful POX and God conceded to Russ’ infinite love and wisdom. Russ just tried to convince Mormon youth that he is better and more loving than God. I feel he did more harm tha...
