Virtue Signalling?

Post by Brent » Tue Dec 10, 2019 7:35 am

Virtue Signalling: the action or practice of publicly expressing opinions or sentiments intended to demonstrate one's good character or the moral correctness of one's position on a particular issue.

I find LDS virtue signaling to be particularly interesting. “I hate Porn” is common as well as expressing one’s distaste for “cino” drinks. #Lighttheworld is a particularly offensive churchwide push to virtue signal. Need a giggle? LDS Freedom Forum has many, many threads and polls where you can virtue signal—I even think I’ve seen posts over there from women who “can’t wait for polygamy to return” so they can live it.
That said: Favorite Virtue Signalling done by members?

A close family member has mentioned how much she hates the smell of coffee. She is confident she would hate it even if it were decriminalized from the WoW.

Friend: Let's go see this movie; it's getting rave reviews!
Past me: Umm, isn't that R-rated? :oops:

I hate the smell. Some of us just do. I had a job where my cube was just outside the office kitchen door. The coffee smells about killed me, particularly this one French roast another employee loved.

If you can ever have a real conversation about those hideous things with a believer, they will admit that the only REAL reason that they wear them is because: "What would the neighbors think if they saw my shoulders???" In other words: The only reason they wear them is so their MORmON family and neighbors see them wearing them.

I remember after my mission refusing to help a friend move a television because it was THE SABBATH :roll:

I hate the smell. I hate the taste. I have been drinking it because it helps with my ADD, actually calms the bouncing off the walls, for about three years now and it isn’t getting any better. I drink the expensive 100% Kona because it is less bitter, (you can buy it on one for one arm and one leg) and a medium roast because it tastes less like burned chili beans.

Two environmental smells I love: Pinecones and cinnamon scent when I walk in the door at Smith's Food and Drug and when someone is grinding a sack of coffee beans in that same store.

Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

I've always loved the smell of coffee. Don't know why. When I was a member I used to love going into a Denny's or IHOP and smelling it...now I'm amazed because somehow it's thinner than water...
