SAM

SAM
A place for free-thinking Mormons who refuse to be told what to believe.

What's up with this name change? Is it a temporary tribute to Sam Young or a paean to Samwise Gamgee? Has this site been hacked by Samaritans or those wishing to be free of the endless cycle of Samsara?
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

It's a tribute to Nephi's brother. Isn't that horrible that his only claim to fame is being someone's older brother?

I hope Sam Young is well.

Damn head-cold. That took me a bit longer than it probably should have to find the definition of samsara. A connected mobile sensor compa... no. Ah, a travel movi... no. Got it! Sanskrit for traveling, wandering, in a cyclical way. Hey, that also explains the movie!

I hope SAM is feeling better than I am this morning.

edit: Later... Hey! That also explains the mobile sensor thing! Damn head-cold.

One of the other alter-egos of CaptainSalty thought this would be appropriate over this weekend. We'll see if or when it gets changed back...

I expect they're waiting to the end of the day Friday to hit the sweet spot on the news cycle.

You mean they're actually calculating???

Perhaps parents will be able to discuss the importance of withholding their children from such interviews during Sunday services, subsequent to Sam Young's excommunication giving the green light for such abuse to continue unabated.

They are probably waiting for the hurricane to fill the bulk of the news and they will announce it then.
