And we are forgetting to give him his demerits for his unhealthy thinking. -50. Because I really hate when they teach habits that ruin people’s mental health.

Oh boy, it's that beloved hymn "We Thank thee. O God, For Making Us Better Than All The Other Religions."

...Godoy is up next, then Anderson. And you know what? Anderson is so bland I had honestly forgotten he was a Q12.

Not much changed. I was in YM in the 80s and we had to watch that river video on chastity. Yuck.
When I was on my mission, our MP showed it to us. He then shared some stories about "difficult" situations faced by some missionaries. That was cringey.

+10 for using the word "angel" without immediately following it with "wife" or "mother."

I like where this was going so far. He was taught by sister missionaries, at a time when they probably made up only a tiny fraction of the overall missionary force (remember GBH saying he didn't want too many women serving? Jerk.)

Oh goody, it's the ol' "sing a hymn so you won't masturbate" trope!!!

Seriously, has anyone actually tried that?
Could you hum a few bars?
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

I'm also doing something a little extra this NOMference. In case you haven't read the Saturday morning thread, the church has called out Tarot and Oracle decks in the latest version of CHI. So in order to make the SCMC more angry with me, I'm going to pull a card for us for each session.

This morning's card is:

It was pretty good and then he lost me by saying that it's the convert and other people need to adjust to the church not the other way around. That's a bit of a problem

There's more of "you have to give up your culture" talk.

+10 points for reaching out to those who don't fit in.

That's pretty bad but I do like that he acknowledges that it's hard for new converts to adjust. Getting baptized isn't the happy ending.

That being said... last time I was at sacrament meeting (2 weeks ago) we were told to evacuate the premises IMMEDIATELY after the closing prayer. No time to be looking around and trying to befriend people, because of the Rona.

Welp. Time to hit the mute button.

People are leaving religion because RELIGION HAS NOTHING TO OFFER THEM. Very few of us get a 6 figure "modest stipend," free travel and health care, free BYU for all our descendants, cushy red velvet chairs, etc etc etc.

Come talk to my kids who are on the spectrum from misotheist to agnostic to atheist. They all came by their beliefs honestly. And every single one of them has a HIGHLY developed, well functioning moral compass.

Jerk.

Just dropping in to offer my support for those chained to the TV or radio. I hear it droning in the background but so far have only heard fragments. Such a big nothing burger.
