I'm not expecting much more than 'Continuing Obfuscation', mixed with a bit of Hype;

Seriously, the 'value' of Hype is much down in Morland, it's definitely on the way out; that leaves a vacuum of material for Hoax & his peers, what a shame...


back to the good ole, tried & true Pray, Pay, Obey, will have to suffice...

I remember talking to Howard W Hunter after a conference in Corvallis, Oregon and we were having a real good conversation and Oaks was there with Hunter. He looked like he couldn’t wait to get out of there. Ha! Ha! Hunter on the other hand was happy, laughing and talking to anyone who wanted to talk to him.

Surely it will come to pass that Oaks will find something to make young marrieds feel guilty about.

Something to feel guilty about, hmm:

1. Make sure your kids are thoroughly indoctrinated, if you slip up its all your fault they don't believe.

2. Are you doing enough to provide a gospel presence in your home?(answer: no, you're not)

3. Make sure you are praying together... this counts as intimacy. If you are having marital problems, this is the reason.

4. pay your tithing... and offerings. If you aren't blessed make sure to pay more.

Was this sarcasm or did I miss something.

Have you ever seen Ringo in person?

and that's Sir Richard Starkey to you mate.

I’d gladly hear Ringo speak.

Oakes? I wouldn’t cross the street to see him if I was offered $100.

I don't think Blackfoot, Idaho will host any ground-breaking GA announcements … with the possible exception of ground-breaking for a branch office of Handshakes, Inc...

These latest guilting firesides across the West sure are keeping the brethren busy - let them keep up the nonsense as the number of members leaving the cult is not diminishing no matter what tactic they try. Sweden, Idaho, Hawaii, Arizona, Utah, etc.....I think they just enjoy the sight-seeing and those adoring TBM's who haven't given up on them.

How much credibility does he have left after the November policy reversal? Hating gays was his big thing.

My guess is Dallin's message will be much the same as it has been for decades:

1. the church is the most important thing in your lives. (subtext: you are a worthless, sinning reprobate without the church)

2. listen to your leaders (and by strong implication - nobody else). Do not question your leaders (even if they are wrong - it is not your place to say anything you sinner).

3. you are responsible for your spouse's salvation (to really lay on the guilt for a spouse that wants to back away from the church)

4. you have a duty to bring spirit children into righteous homes (so go get at it, have lots of kids now, don't wait, and teach them to be obedient drones too)

5. pay your tithing or you will burn at the second coming (no subtext at all here)


See, being an apostle isn't that hard - you just need to know the old playbook.

Doesn't the Mormon cult have a private hunting resort in the mountains east of Blackfoot? Oakes and wife could enjoy a second honeymoon there--or would it be a third honeymoon for him?

Don't know if anyone has followed-up on this post, but, here is a link reporting on the meeting:

https://www.idahostatejournal.com/news/local/lds-president-oaks-asks-parents-to-be-united-in-blackfoot/article_f476dd3b-5d09-5cff-8bb4-5c58c004193f.html


After the parenting advice, they heard this they shouldn't use the word "gay".


"After Oaks spoke, there was a panel discussion led by Elder Kevin Hathaway and Sister Becky Craven.

They answered prepared questions and touched on subjects including pornography and heavy cellphone use by their children, as well as talk about gay and transgender people.

“I just wanted to add a few comments on gender and gender identification,” Hathaway said. “While we recognize what LGBT means, we do not use those labels when we talk about people. We don’t say, for example, that person is gay. We say that person struggles with same gender attraction.”

Hathaway continued, “Why is that even important? It’s important because whenever we place a label or allow a label to be placed upon us then we also — a lot of times by default — accept the lifestyle that comes with that.”"

So Mormons don't do genealogy, they struggle with ancestor-worship attraction?

FIXED

"We don’t say, for example, that person is Mormon or a member of the church. We say that person struggles with being a victim of a cult.

If Oaks could, then he would say these words (He's afraid of the blowback)

We (as Gawd's chosen leaders) are sick and tired of you lazy parents loving and embracing your defective children. Please stop giving them unconditional love and support for being gay, instead tell them that they are ill and need to fight the urge to be gay. Tell them to pretend and it will work out somehow. Because of your shitty parenting skills and forever crying on social media, we leaders have to be afraid of offending rational people.

I know the Craven woman is a local yokel but not sure about the elder. The anti gay is strong with these people.

Maybe they're changing the rule on "taking an oral exam."

It could happen!
