Re: McKenna Bears Testimony in Bishop's Ward

That was amazing. I would have enjoyed having a giant bowl of popcorn while this was going on. I live only a few miles from this building and I would have enjoyed watching the fireworks, but I suppose it's simply the kind of operation that needs to be a surprise, and not a scheduled event. Well don...

Another old book connecting the Native Americans to Hebrews

I posted this over on the other interweb place, but thought you fine people might be interested. "The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee" https://archive.org/details/naturalaborigina00hayw It was published in 1823 and was quite popular. Check out the description of Chapter X, then check out...

Re: new narrative

On a serious note, the church has already done this "new narrative" thing with the Book of Abraham. It is chock full of problems and demonstrably proven false, but somehow it is still there in the Canon of Scriptures, a "revealed" work. Funny thing though, nobody every quotes the Pearl of Great Pri...

Re: Broke the news that I'm "questioning"

If you really want to blow her mind, listen to the Tom Phillips interview about the 2nd anointing with her. It's 5 hours long but probably covers a lot of good stuff she hasn't considered before. The real magic will happen when you and her compare your mistreatment to the special treatment of the 2...

Re: Orrin Hatch is the keeper of the sacred artifacts

I will always think of the Clinton Impeachment when I see Hatch. Put everything about Bill Clinton and Impeachment aside for a second - it was Hatch, in the Senate, who first floated the unique idea of "censure". Censure isn't a thing, as far as I understand. So here is this very conservative Senato...

Re: Breasts in the News

There is nothing sexy about breastfeeding. Any man who thinks there is something sexually arousing about it has a problem. And women shouldn’t have to cover up when breastfeeding because some men have a problem. I always thought my wife looked beautiful pregnant and nursing. Not in the lingerie kin...

Re: Bill Reel Gets Ultimatum from Stake President

What recent event forced the Stake President's hand? Was it something that Bill recently had on his website or was it an ultimatum from HQ or both? Is Bill holding up okay? Bill has been very aggressive on Facebook, including pictures of the apostles with the word LIAR stamped across their faces. H...

Re: Bill Reel Gets Ultimatum from Stake President

My guess is that Bill takes it to the high council and goes down in a blaze of glory. Bill is a good guy, but he's had enough. He's also been picking this fight for a while, so I doubt anyone is surprised.

Re: The worst (least inspired) decisions by Church leaders

Printing the Articles of Faith. No evangelists, we never hear about he New Jerusalem anymore, they punish the kids of gay parents, and they certainly aren't honest. Also, they left out some ordinances. The AoF describes some other church.

Or maybe Zion's Camp.

I would add "Lack of modern mircales". If the same priesthood is here, just like biblical times, then we would see miracles today.

Re: Elder Holland vs. the 1949 First Presidency

The LDS leadership has this really stupid practice of ALWAYS protecting their predecessors, unless and until they have no other choice. Holland is lying. I'm sure he has his mental-gymnastic reasons for doing such, but its a lie. The 1949 message you quote is definitive, and even used by the FP as ...

Love it. Excellent work. *I'm not familiar with Grant Palmer, but you cite him a few times. Does his work withstand scrutiny? I know he was an outspoken critic of the church so some people will discredit him for that alone (his bias). His book was a page-turner for me. The one thing that many of us...

Moksha, your picture here is actually sad. Look at their faces! They look tired, angry, and worn. I hope they think all the adoration is worth it.... These are guys who traded every weekend of their lives for adoration. Can you imagine spending the rest of your life in Stake Conference? Kill me.
