Re: What does everyone listen to?

Metal. 80s hair metal to black metal and every metal genre in between. Oh and Pink Floyd. I mean who doesn't recognize the genius minds that were Pink Floyd. If there is a heaven I am sure that David Gilmore playing "Marooned" is on a 24 hour loop.

Re: Rank and File vs Oaks

Please forgive me if my post is blunt. I mean no offense. Politically I am very, very right wing. I have never been a strong Mormon. In the past a lot of people have been afraid of LGBTQ people. We were never really exposed to them and held some pretty nonsensical beliefs. These are our friends, our...

Someone answering the description of Count Grishnackh was seen in the vicinity.

Re: The changing face of LDS INC under RMN...why the rush?

My TBM Mother assured me that all these changes are because Jesus is coming, like really soon guys. That was the consensus during ftm at church two weeks ago. The bishop started crying about how the wheat and tares are being separated now. My lovely wife just looked at me and rolled her eyes. She i...

Re: Missionary name badges

Anyone remember the old days of Stake Missionaries? They would wear their badges to all meetings, I even had a neighbor who wore his all over town as well. I remember walking in on a Stake Missionary meeting as a kid, and looking around at the weirdness of the badges and the meeting. Slowly backing...

Re: Congrats to DHO #2 on the Top 10 2018 Dbag List

Tangential thought - How can NOMs best avoid being labeled as haters for their association with LDS General Authorities policy statements against homosexuals? Two thoughts on this. One. Why must one identify themselves as a "Mormon." When I was active I never volunteered my religious identity unles...

Re: Congrats to DHO #2 on the Top 10 2018 Dbag List

Utah has a suicide rate that is 60% higher than the national average. Suicides in Utah have risen nearly 50% since 1999 for everyone. Does Utah have a lgbtq suicide problem alone? Hardly. Utah has a suicide problem.

Re: In which I was voluntold

I will reiterate what has already been said. "No," is one of the most beautiful and underappreciated words ever. My wife was having major anxiety about this and that and the other because she never felt like she could tell others "no!" Once she did, she felt as though a huge burden had been lifted o...

Re: Have any GA's talked about a faith/truth crisis?

GA's? Not that I know of. I did have a Bishop in Georgia while on my mission who stood up in opening exercises, explained how the Church calling was taking too much time out of his life and damaging his family and marriage. He walked down, took his wife by the hand and walked out through the door wi...

Re: Another Mission President Rapist

Why don't these victims sue the perpetrator and the Church? I read all of these stories but I can't understand this. If one of my kids were abused by a church leader then I would gather all the evidence I could, present it to law enforcement for an investigation and possible charges. Are people real...

Re: Married but attracted....

Well, we pretty much try to avoid one another like the plague. It's difficult being that our lives overlap quite a bit. It has become kind "hello, how you doing," and on our individual way mixed with long stares. I will admit that it is still a difficult situation but we are handling it as adults.

Re: Question about LDS Church

This is an absurd question. From my experience the church doesn't have a belief for anything and everything other than read your scriptures, pay your tithing and don't speak evil of the Lord's "annointed." It's like asking if the Church believes everyone has the right to a quality automotive tire wi...

Re: What would you expect if the church was true?

Above all for me would be consistency. My point is not to debate what the church teaches. My point is that a "true" wouldn't change their doctrine from century to century nor to conform with evolving social norms. If the original beliefs were true 100 years ago, i.e. polygamy among other things, the...

Re: Why give a sh*t what god wants?

The day I stopped caring about "god" was such a wonderful day.

Re: 20% of missionaries coming home early

I recall a zone leader i had who at about 18 months just decided that he was done. No depression. No homesickness. He was just done. Didn't want to play anymore. So he bought a Mustang from a member and drive home to Florida. What a badass.
