God doesn’t need rites or rituals, passwords or prophets, tithes or corporations to save his children. All that is required is truth and love.

The best thing about the Church is the people. The worst thing is the corporation.

The Church, especially it’s temple interview process, teaches us to think more like the Pharisee and less like the publican.

And it came to pass, I discovered the truth wasn’t written upon golden plates.

Totally agree here. Well put.

As far as prophets go, the scriptures say "there is nothing new under the sun." Even with all the new technology the problems of human nature are still the same as they have ever been. So if a person doesn't get wisdom and understanding from a good study of what has already been written, chances are a "modern prophet" wouldn't help that much. Especially when so many false prophets seem to abound.

Many years ago I woke up one day, walked to the bathroom in my G’s and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought “oh God! wtf am I wearing?”

A few years ago I woke up one day, walked to the bathroom in my colorful boxers and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought “I’m created in God’s image!”

Today I woke up, walked to the bathroom in complete nakedness and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought “I am God!”

Tomorrow, I may not wake up at all and will become the dust of the earth, only a fading memory held forever in a scrapbook, a digital snapshot capturing my thoughts in a few internet discussion forums, and Google God’s all knowing memory.

If this is the best plan a god can come up with, then he is a pretty shitty god.

I’m convinced Joseph Smith did more to organize the Church than Jesus did.

I can do it in one word. I heard this for the first time last evening while at my in-laws for a birthday party. My father in law worked his entire career for the church and is the worst name dropper you will ever meet. So after boring us with his latest adventure in golf with "elder" So-and-so his son labeled his as a "Bretherenite." This is defined as one who worships the leaders over Christ. I loved it.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Red Ryder essentially said this earlier, but this is one word shorter: “Joseph lied.”

I still remember the day I read an article in the Tribune about DNA and the BOM. I googled for more information and ended up watching a video about the Book of Abraham. About half way though the video I thought to myself:

"Joseph made it all up."

A switch inside me flipped at the moment and I have been a non-believer ever since.

"Any God that is OK with polygamy is not a God I want to worship"

Polygamy was what really led to me leaving - I didn't know about the other problems at first beyond polygamy and the ban on blacks. So I suppose that would've been my initial line. Now... it would be hard to get it down to online.

"Any heaven that separates families is not heaven at all."

"Either God set Joseph Smith up to look like the biggest fraud ever or Joseph Smith made it all up."

My one-liner is, "I don't think you're prepared to have this conversation with me..."
I love this one!

I dont have a one liner. I would not ever want to have a one liner, as this conversation is just too significant and complicated to properly convey my feelings or experience.

I can do it in one word. . . . "Bretherenite."
Describes the current code of conduct, indeed.
