Things that make you go huh?

Post by Red Ryder » Fri Jul 06, 2018 3:11 pm

In case anyone needs to look back on their journey to normalcy and see just how far you've come; here's a few quotes from around Satan's information superhighway!

Things that make you go huh?
The only time you should not wear garments is if a leader tells you to not wear them. Even if you are actively sinning, wear them until you can go and confess.
What the huh?
For some reason, not having a valid recommend was as nerve racking/upsetting and stressful as when I was in the hospital and they refused to let me wear my garments! I felt so spiritually UNPROTECTED - it felt akin to being publically nekked!
What the huh?
Has anyone ever stopped to wonder why the most enlightened and advanced civilization in the universe is a Kingdom and not a republic or a democracy? It is called “The Kingdom of Heaven”, not “The Republic of Heaven” or “The Democracy of Heaven” – not even “The Socialists of Heaven” or “The Communists of Heaven”.
Put your yoga pants away!
Tight clothing is anything that emphasizes the body. So, clothing such as yoga pants or anything made out of Spandex is not modest. Clothing made out of stretch fabrics like stretch jersey knit are not modest. Those fabrics mold to and show off the figure. That means a great deal of women's tops are not modest. Skinny jeans are not modest. Basically, what is modest are loose fitting clothes; not baggy, just loose fitting.
Define Pornography?
I consider immodest clothing and swimwear to be pornography. Even one piece swimsuits do I consider immodest but NOT pornography due to the simple fact that we have genuine sisters who are TRYING to be modest by wearing such. Anyone who finds this extreme might simply underestimate the character of the devil and the manner of his influence.
Those who do not move do not notice their chains. —Rosa Luxemburg

Not sure if it makes you go huh?, but it does suggest checking to see if your wallet is secure.

Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

So - prophets in the scriptures were always telling wicked rulers to repent. No matter where you stand politically, it is beyond dispute that Donald Trump is guilty of the kind of whoredoms Abinadi was executed for calling King Noah and his priests out on, the kind of wickedness Elijah called Ahab out on, etc. and etc. Why is it our prophets today shake hands with adulterous leaders instead of calling them to repentance? Not even a mild rebuke for the whole “grab them by the p****” fiasco? I mean, he’s shaking the hand that did the grabbing. Not to be crude, but doesn’t that merit even a teeny, weeny bit of a call to repentance from a prophet? Elijah would have let him have it.

Our prophets today are pretty milquetoast compared to the ones in the scriptures.

Who is the woman looking adoringly up at the lecherous old man? That is what turns my stomach most in this picture.

I am pretty certain the woman is Jean B. Bingham, General Relief Society President.

You can't project too much from one picture, but it's interesting to look at the facial expressions and body language. Nelson looks pretty much as he always does, Eyring looks like he's not enjoying this and he's not appearing to offer much if a handshake, the woman (Brigham?) looks to be enthralled by Trump. Trump seems to be offering a healthy handshake but appears ready to dash and not really into the guys.

She's with us, move along Mr President.

I assume Trump did not do his dominance handshake with the First Presidency. They are not as young and strong as Trudeau and Macron; heck, maybe not as strong as Angela Merkle.

Notice her mouth is smiling but her eyes are not. It appears to me to be a well-practiced, oft-used look of faux adoration she has likely employed many times when listening to batcrap crazy council from her inspired priesthood leaders. To me it is a look that puts on a front of admiration, but hides her true thoughts. And I'm willing to wager she has done the same thing with the Brethren.

But then maybe she really does admire Trump and her priesthood holding overseers. What do I know?

So did HBE imediately wash his hand or did he not wash it for like a couple of weeks or more? Yep, I'm being full on crude here!

With my study of body language says a woman looking up at a man, with her head cocked sideways, that is adoration, bordering on love or worship. If her head was straight up, then I might agree with you. She isn't just looking up, she is looking at him worshipfully. Puke.

Agreed. Pretty sure that she has used this expression thousands of times over the years. If she had any thoughts, this expression would hide her true ones.- JMO . -- Wndr.

Agreed. It’s muscle memory at this point. She’s been taught her entire life that men are in charge and she has made a covenant to obey them. She won’t/can’t question their authority because the idea has been systematically repressed in her brain. She is a well behaved Mormon woman.
