Re: From Apostate to the HC

Mormorrisey, your post in response to mine was about a lot of stuff, so I'm not going to quote. But just to clarify a bit what I meant by your SP likely learning that lots of people are struggling, and asking you to join the HP. I wasn't thinking that he wanted you to talk directly with members abou...

Re: Laughing SOOO hard!

This was my favorite part of the site so far.
Each ward is led by a bishop. Because there is no paid local clergy in Eve (not Steve)n The Church of Ziontology, these bishops come from all walks of life.

Re: Dear Mr. Stears - letter from Kirton McConkie

With no context/background info, this makes absolutely no sense. (like Rubin H mentions.) I have no idea, this could actually be justified.

Re: From Apostate to the HC

That is a wild story! You said your SP IS new, so I'd be willing to bet he had a fair amount of people in his office saying they were struggling with their faith. He realized they really need someone like you. Good job, hope you can make a difference.

Re: Sam and Patty Young's testimonies

Wow, how can ziontology escape this newest PR nightmare? I bet Newsroom is hiring, probably doubling their workforce. So I am kind of confused about this and the whole non disclosure thing. I just read these posts, are these the statements they wrote out, so they can release them? Did Sam just not s...

Re: Pendelum shifts away from Mormon

Maybe they should have Kirton|McKonkie write up a " Proclamation on Trademarks™ and Branding " and the 1st Prezidency can sign their names to it and canonize it. I'm not so sure Russ really thought this one through... Lol. Looks like Fox news isn't following Russ's orders. If Fox News won't obey, t...

Re: Rebranding.... No Longer Mormon

For those of you who may have difficulty determining when it is appropriate to use the word "Mormon". My wife said she thought this was ridiculous. Like Corsair, I thought this was going to be a joke. But it actually kind of is, since it says we no longer associate with Joseph Smith and his group, ...

Re: Having an 8yo baptism, or not.

My thought is to just let Jesus make it official. Don't want church records in the way of her life, unless she wants that as an adult she could choose to. But she could be like her friends and we could take pictures, etc. This sounds perfect. Your kids can choose to officially join any church they ...

Re: Seminary students will learn that the POX is revelation this year

The Brethren's distaste for different sexual preferences is a generational thing which most younger people do not share. In the film musical South Pacific, the observation was made that you have to be carefully taught to hate. Can the Church turn these young people to the dark side with their teach...

I think if anything, it's kind of like the "me too" movement in that people will be more tuned into st...

Re: Tips for a stalemate with TBM in-laws

I also like the ideas of you teaching a lesson, especially Hopebeat's idea of having the kids ask the grandparents questions about their childhood etc. Just try to focus on making good memories for the kids with their grandparents. If you need to leave their house early, just stay positive and thank...

I miss Julie Rowe being in the news. We need more like her convincing members that healing crystals work and people need tents for the impending doom. The bigger the crazy the better.

Re: Elder Christofferson Has Read Sam Young's Stories of Abuse

What would it even mean to get between the Lord and his prophet? How could that happen? If RMN is speaking with God, how could anyone stop him? The defensiveness indicates a lack of confidence in their position. BINGO. And Russell Nelson ain't no prophet. If he, Monson, or any of these other fake s...

Why not just start talking and subtly change the subject to the fruits of the spirit from Galatians? There's lots of great stuff in these verses!
