https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/lost-golden-city-of-luxor-discovered-by-archaeologists-in-egypt/ar-BB1frL2E?ocid=BingNewsSearch I wonder why the LDS church doesn't think to unearth the BOM cities. They're more recent, so it should be easier.

If the “power of the priesthood” can’t vanquish COVID, what good is it? Over half a million people have died, and millions more are infected. Why doesn’t the prophet use his powers to squelch it?

So again ChurchCo announced new temples, eight this time. And weepy-eyed members are blathering about what a sure sign this is that the church is true in these the latter days. I have for a long time thought that in an era of stagnant growth, new temples are announced and built to stimulate revenue, but that is entirely speculative. Does anyone have any real insight into what goes on in th

$35 million: - Immunize 777,777 children, or - Drill 4,375 clean water wells in Africa, or - Build 290 schools in Africa, or - Build 700 small clinics in Africa But I'm sure it's a very nice book.

The offense taken at the cross is false and another example of the Mormon superiority complex. They act offended to show they're better than those poor Catholic losers who worship idols because THEY have the Truth. How is a guy trumpeting his horn any less of an idol than a cross? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_Veterans_Affairs_emblems_for_headstones_and_marker

I have long thought that the LDS church is led by a bunch of unqualified pretenders who in the process of pretending to be "inspired" can do grave harm. I do not know the right way to deal with a murderer of even one person much less a serial murderer. But I'm guessing the church leader who passed on this advice is no more qualified than I am: "He says a church leader told

I would think like most bureaucracies, ChurchCo has a pretty well developed succession plan in place. I'm betting there's a short list that is kept updated by the First Presidency. When someone catches their eye, he's added. When someone screws up, they're dropped. And my guess is we will see a non-Caucasian male this go around. The Lord is feeling the need to press even more vigorousl

From D. Michael Quinn's "The Mormon Hierarchy: Wealth and Corporate Power," in quoting an email from Alan Blodgett of the Church Financial Department: "Why then doesn't the Church tell its financial story? I can only guess that Church leaders fear that individual members may not understand the vastness of Church resources and operations, and having this information might negat

"Room 104" is a new series on HBO that is much like the "Twilight Zone" series I remember from the early 60s. If you get a chance, you might want to watch this episode: https://www.advocate.com/television/2017/9/08/tonights-room-104-takes-mormon-missionaries-and-sexual-repression It wasn't meant to be funny, but for this Exmo and my significant other, we found it hila

Meh. I generally give great reviews of books I read, but this one wasn't to me that great. Maybe I was looking for more than there was there. It is chock full of historical data, property records, how much 19th century LDS leaders accrued in wealth, and so on. So if you're into that you will likely enjoy it. What I was looking for was contemporary insight, hopefully juicy insight. Dis

"The best days are ahead for the kingdom of God on the earth," said President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency. "Opposition will strengthen our faith in Jesus Christ, as it has since the days of the Prophet Joseph Smith. Faith always defeats fear. Standing together produces unity." I can't help but think that's whistling in the dark as he sees what m
