Hi otDL, I would love for there to be complete consistency in how posts are moderated here, but we have different individuals in different time zones doing things and sometimes they don't align as well as we'd like. I'm sorry about that. Political issues are tricky. In a perfect world we could trust RfM posters to discuss things in a civil manner, however historically it has broken down int

I normally don't wade into debates here, but I've seen a lot of Mitt Romney over the years. He has many flaws, including (sometimes) a lack of honesty. However, I think there's adequate evidence to show that he is a true believer: a believer in both God and the LDS church. Mormons are programmed from an early age to believe in covenants and oaths before God. This is done from baptism through t

At long last, the winners of the RfM Short Story Contest! I apologize for the delay in announcing the winners. There were so many good entries that choosing the "best" ones was difficult, even with multiple winners. I did arrange to get some second opinions that helped me come to a good conclusion for the contest. Also, annoyingly, the past year has been rough for me, sucking up a

These are Iranian-backed protestors. Their attack on the embassy is because of Sunday's U.S. air strikes on Iranian proxies in Syria. Unfortunately, the proxy war in Syria/Iraq/Yemen is tending in a more 'direct' direction. https://www.voanews.com/middle-east/iraqi-protesters-attack-us-embassy-compound-baghdad

Jordan, We're a pretty welcoming and inclusive community, but we do have a few rules to help keep things civil and less chaotic. If you'd follow the "no politics" rule and refrain from posting under different user names, you'd have a much better time here. Please give it some thought. CZ (admin)

Why? Because you two have locked horns before, Jordan? And now you are so cowed that you keep posting insipid digs at her under a variety of pseudonyms? Be a man and stop hiding in the shadows because you’re afraid of what the daylight might reveal about you. CZ

Greetings fellow exmos! It's time to raise funds again to support the running of exmormon.org and the fabulous Recovery from Mormonism bulletin board. But wait, you say. Didn't he have a fundraiser only a few months ago? Yes, but we didn't raise enough money to run the board for a whole year. The money we raised then is running out and we need new funds to keep things going. We need to r

The subject of bilberry and pilot eyesight is interesting, especially because there's no medical evidence that bilberry affects eyesight at all: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilberry#Myths_and_research The best explanation for the myth about bilberry and British pilots that I've heard is that it was deliberate disinformation by the British government during WW2. This was to help hide the fact

Off-topic discussion should be kept to a minimum. If you have a personal issue and are requesting support from other posters, then that's usually OK. However, the board is not Facebook and should not be used to share whatever news item enthuses/enrages you that day. Please try to keep things on topic. However, painting a veneer of Mormonism onto something unrelated in order to try to justify t

Genesis 9 doesn't mention race or skin color. Equating the Curse of Ham/Canaan with white supremacy is not justified from the text. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curse_of_Ham#Misconception,_racism,_and_slavery

Thanks for pointing this out, azsteve. Regardless of the topic, no one is allowed to advertise or solicit funds on the board without admin approval. The poster "letsbreal" did not obtain such approval, so I've pulled their posts. I don't know what is going on with the Gaddy suit, but this site has no connection with it. I have no firsthand knowledge of what either the Exmormon Fou
