Saturday afternoon NOMference!!

Post by MoPag » Sat Oct 03, 2020 12:54 pm

So this morning was rough. We did have a really good talk by Sister Craig. But Cook and Oaks really brought us down low.

The guy doing the summary at the Exmormon subreddit thought Oaks' talk was the best he had ever given because he did not say anything about LGBT persons. I thought that was a mighty low bar to clear, but I guess it was cleared.

Your cards are great. I'm going to need inner strength to get through this.

Brigid is the Celtic Goddess of the flame and healing.

Which I think is great 'cause we all need some healing. And maybe we need to burn some things too.

Dear Brigid, help us through this session!

That is true. I kept thinking he would throw in a jab at gay marriage when he was talking about laws of the land. And he didn't.

But it was still a problematic talk.

To be sure, I thought the talk was awful.

My husband sent me a link to the Michael McLean video on the church YT channel. Is it safe to watch or is it gonna make me want to throw things?

Why are they bothering to have opposed votes?

It's like having elections in dictatorships. You have to keep up the forms.

So, fictitious history is used to determine social norms. I guess that's been going on for a long time, but it's disturbing.

Wow it's like the John Birchers like Benson et al during the 1950s. They aren't even bothering to hide their conservatism anymore.
