One of these things is not like the others

This is for encouragement, ideas, and support for people going through a faith transition no matter where you hope to end up. This is also the place to laugh, cry, and love together.

Have you heard the story of James C. Jones, who was hired by the church to produce a video class for Deseret Book about "Abandoning Attitudes and Actions of Prejudice" and then was fired for pointing out Holland's attitudes and actions of prejudice?

See if you can pick out Jones among the faces below:

The lesson is quite clear: Do not stand in the way of Apostles firing their muskets. The Church has chosen to fatally wound itself with its hatred of homosexuals. Younger members are fleeing this intolerance.

This young PR person found out that you can't fix something that deliberately chooses to remain broken.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

To quote the great Nate Diaz from Utah…

“I’m not surprised Mother Fetchers!”

This is another hilarious example of the church’s idiotic and pretentious attempt to look normal.

Once again, the church shoots themselves in the foot with their own muskets and doubles down on supporting racism and anti-LGBTQ+ attitudes and policies thus creating a smaller and smaller tent. Mind you it's a billion dollar tent, but a small tent nonetheless.
