Lots of extra points to everyone for not fawning over Pres. Nelson.
Good point. I thought this GC would be nothing BUT fawning over him.

This conference is turning out to a real disappointment. After all that hype and preparation it's just the same crap they push every conference. I hope Rusty has a some juicy announcements up his sleeve to salvage this pretty bland " historic" conference.

It really is sad for all those people who really think these guys are inspired. They are pitching the same old dribble whilr we are in the mist of a world-wide crisis and people are truly suffering. They are not even making any effort to comfort anyone. The lack of inspiration is striking.
Amen, Amen and Amen!!!!

People are really supposed to raise their hands in their homes? Seriously...this is ridiculous!
I was at a friend's house watching conference 6 or 7 years ago and we raised our hands in his home to vote opposed. We figured angels and God were watching.
There are 2 Gods. One who created us. The other you created. The God you made up is just like you-thrives on flattery-makes you live in fear.

Believe in the God who created us. And the God you created should be abolished.

So, Saturday sessions are over and already forgotten.

Need I say more about the memorability of this conference so far? So glad I took my vitamins!!!

Wasn't it part of the old sandstone foundation story that BY wanted the foundation rebuilt on granite so that it would last until and through the milennium? I thought I remember being told that the foundation was explicitly revealed to survive earthquakes.
Yep, I was taught that for years. It was going to last through the millennium.

My thoughts and counts from the afternoon session:

Joseph Smith - 24
Jesus Christ - 30
Dusty Rusty - 4
Other GA - 17

Sustaining: Rusty and Oaks shake hands WTH?, Hollands Kid becomes a GA - nepotism is alive and well, Rusty grinning like a fool as he is sustained.

Audit report: we spend the money the way we wanted to spend the money and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it so nanananana

Soares: Joseph Smith love fest. I would have been horrified if I had invited a Christian friend to watch this with me and this was what they saw. I like how he pronounces Moroni - Moron E. Of course there is no archeaological evidence because Joseph made it all up.

McCune: +100 for admitting that there is no way to know the outcome. -20 for Brownnosing Rusty. -20 for not focusing on Christ. -20 for it being all about the church.

Cousee: +100 for a Christ centered talk

Renulund: +100 for a Christ centered talk as well. Surprisingly a good talk.

Tai: Meh

Stephenson: Look at me...I'm different. I'm not going to worship Joseph Christ...I'm going to go all in on how awesomely amazing Brigham Young was. -100

Right, having Matt Holland join his father as a general authority was no surprise.
And I thought I heard a Packer in there too. *shivers*
You did. Grandkid, I believe
