Re: Melonakos Interview with John Dehlin

I think Oliver Cowdery works well as a co-conspirator except that his falling out in Kirtland was so drastic that it seems like he would have threatened or spilled the beans about how it actually happened. Why didn't this happen? Melonakos would probably say that he was still bound by a blood oath....

Re: Elder Hamula?

I would have assumed that Hamula would have had the 2nd anointing. Wondering why they would ex him and not Joseph Bishop? Elder Hamula was too public and honest within his own family and within his leadership hierarchy. In contrast, Joseph Bishop kept his indiscretion quiet well past the statute of...

Re: Two Churches - I'm finally starting to get it

After watching people fall all over themselves to pronounce that they are membersofthechruchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints, and definitely NOT Mormons something became glaringly apparent to me and a lot of things fell into place. Some of us care primarily about information/doctrine/truth (Type 1). ...

Re: Bill Reel and General Conference Rumors

Well, other than 2 hour church, GC is turning out to be a revelation bust. Same as it ever was. I’ve listened to so much conference and obsessively refreshed reddit and fb watching for the “buckle up” exciting news. I feel so played. Same, except only the Reddit part. I couldn't listen.

Re: Bill Reel and General Conference Rumors

A thought comes to me. It is striking how members have zero say in the church they sacrifice so much for. I would think many if not most members would welcome all these changes, yet they can do nothing but wait for 15 old guys to do micro changes at a snails pace It's true. I have thought about wha...

Re: Flat Earth Ignorance is a Serious Problem

I engaged a Flat Earth guy on reddit a few days ago. It was fascinating at first, but then it just sounded crazy and more like a religious cause than a different scientific analysis. Maybe I was expecting too much.

Hey Stealth - I spend most of my time on reddit these days (so I can openly swear and speak ill, of course). I also added my name to the Bishop's apology. I have to ask a question: are you a Texan? I ask because my wife and I were listening to Sam's friend read the Bishop's apology and one of the na...

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...

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: 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.
