Re: The Guilt Trip

Why do I even care? Maybe because he obviously has questionable morals, and he felt he was justified in looking down on you? Its amazing the irony and the self-righteousness of some people. I bet he went home and felt smug about how he was better than you... that you will burn in hell, while he wil...

Re: Detachment And The Atonement

I enjoyed your post too. When I think about attachment I think about this quote People were made to be loved. Things were made to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used. -Author Unknown To me, letting go of attachment means letting ...

Re: Confused About How DW Interpreted "Spiritual" SM Story

Because the church constantly tells women that God loves them, and then turns around and treats them as walking incubators, and pounds into them how important priesthood is, but motherhood is important too, most women cannot verbalized just how unloved they feel inside. YES^^^ And not being able to...

Re: Female Angels

Joseph Smith Incorporated a lot a paganism into our religion. A lot of people contend that there is no appropriate spiritual home for a disaffected Mormon. I disagree. I believe there is enough paganism in Mormonism, a disaffected Mormon could find a place there. Oh totally! When I studied Wicca, I...

Re: Female Angels

This triple goddess concept completely contradicts the Madonna/whore binary and gives us some views of wome...

Re: Top three prophetic actions or statements

I like how some of the more recent general priesthood sessions have only gone 90 minutes. I hope they don't go back to 2 hours when the mantle passes to the next guy but it likely will. 90 minute conference sessions are so much easier to manage/sit through. The "next guy" is Nelson...so yeah...y'al...

Oh no one does Easter quite like the Mormons. I would throw it back in their faces and give a talk about how Christ's life, atonement and resurrection is the ultimate form of service. Or, If you want to get that Prop 8 taste out of your mouth, here is an article about all the awesome stuff Ellen DeG...

Re: NOM in 2017?

For me, being NOM means understanding that COJCOLDS doesn't own Mormonism and doesn't own me. When we start to embrace out own individual spirituality (or lack there of), I think we realize how crazy it was to be forced/shamed into the "one and only true" spiritual mindset. So I think being NOM mean...

Thanks for sharing this MM! This needs to be NOM canonized. My fave: Here it is in a nut shell - The problem is the product.

Re: Why no big party?

Any celebration of the First Vision would start to resemble Ground Hog Day. Oops - we're going to celebrate it all over again! And again! And yet again! And like Ground Hog Day, it could be slightly altered each time. OMG! I hope we find a version of the first vision with Bill Murray in it!
