I think they are tiring of having to spend time they don't want to spend trying to put together their lying, false Mormon puzzle which is falling to pieces in front of them. You can bet your money they would rather spend their money gained from dutiful tithing paying gophers and more of their time on an agenda which includes traveling, golfing, a massage or two, dining out, Mormon-style-Bingo,

Very well said. The idea that teens who are still, and will be for about five more years, having their brain grow and develop should be expected since being in training pants to believe that they need and should serve a mission and 18 or 19 is child abuse, plain, simple, and devastatingly wrong. My stand is that only more mature people who have had a chance to explore, live life, and kn

Both from my mistakes and watching others face this issue, I believe the best "curiosity" seed for family members and friends to see is an individual's happiness and life outside of the MormonCult. Reminds me of a story concerning a grandchild who asked a favorite uncle where he had been when he arrived late to a Sunday family get-together. The uncle was looking sunburned and all

Agree that the term implies some kind of credentials, and for me, it also implies I am in need of something unbeknownst to me and this here "minister" is assigned to bring it to me. Not that I ever asked for it or wanted it or knew I needed it. So, someone makes a call declaring that they are from THE Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (uh, what church is that?) AND they wo

Fossilized relics (great term)...I probably will steal it sometime, forgetting to give you credit, but hey, I can blame that on my MormonCult indoctrination. Can you imagine the hype Mormonism would create if they even found one single barge in a mound. Bring out two white hankies everyone and your jello salad concoctions and casseroles.

Yessiree, important for the MormonCult to have one more device that keeps things secret, hidden, but still a possibility...like lifting the veil early because you are so righteous. Also, the veil is referred to in the bible, so for the MormonCult to have one also, is indeed a plus.

Now, all the MormonCult has to do is learn some child development to know what they demand of these kids at this age is about as wrong as they can get. Leave them alone and allow them to go out and about living and discovering who they are and who they want to be. Rusty needs to get a bigger notepad so he'll be prepared when, and if, Wendy has the smarts to move on this one.

Once again the MormonCult moves when forced by disrupting circumstances which are circumventing its plan. Put, plain and simple, the cult needed to stop missionaries leaving the field early or choosing to not go at all. Statistics show this number to be higher than ever before. Uchtdorf was quoted in the KSL article as saying, "We continue to find the best ways to support and help them

So Great that progress is going well! You and I were a match for a while as I had 2 hip replacements then managed to fall ONE WHOLE STEP onto cement on my back and tried to save myself with my arm. Shattered my wrist which needed 2 plates and 9 screws to hold it together. Hells bells. it hurt!!! Doing so well now, and I applaud bone doctors who can help so magically when falling disasters

Done & Done, I am truly sorry for your missed time with your Dad because of the MormonCult...and this kind of church commitment screams cult BIG time in my book. I am happy that you finally had wonderful together time you can cling to and remember. I regretably have only two good memories with my Dad and that is it because he and alchoholism were best pals. For a long while, I can say I

This story takes the gold...now its up to you to get the MormoCult to give it to you. It is believable and fun. And, I'll tell you what, Mormon church is neither. :) When I started to pay attention to some of the weird "beliefs" of this church I was attending with friends, the life after death promise I'd fallen for and so wanted to be true, shook me to the core.

Love the quotable descriptions on this thread's various posts of Morgbots in their comfy, non-thinking bubble. They...... - don't dare reflect - mindlessly regurgitate - just remember your need for faith - it will be worked out in the eternities - do not delve into the mysteries - diluting past history - ignoring past history And will add: - conveniently forgetting past history -

I also thank you for a fun read---your love and enthusiasm for the amazing game of soccer is palpable. I have two soccer-loving sons who I am sure are also mourning the loss of Banks. Soccer has been big in my family, and I have watched many, many soccer games through the years because of my children's love and participation in the game. Now some of my grandchildren are being coached by my c

Oak and his, "Right is still right, wrong is still wrong," preaching. Sure would be nice if he preached something he understood and followed. He wouldn't recognize right from wrong if it hit him on the head; he says lying for the Lord is okeydokee, demands members realize the remedy for research, should that evil Devil tempt them, is always prayer and obedience, etc. etc. etc.

Thanks, Kathleen. I remember when my Mom turned forty (her birthday present was to learn that all her teeth needed to be pulled and dentures were in the forecast). Forty seemed soooo old to me back then, and maybe because I had this picture that soon she would look like my Grandmother, I had this aversion going forward of growing old. Plus, not to be disrespectful, but the only person I real

I had a thoughtful? brother in law deliver the news to me when I tuned 69 to enjoy the next year because at 70 everything starts to "really" go down hill. Hmm...thanks? for that bit of news, Sam.

Sure you all are getting weary of my posts but bare with me as sitting in this chair is what I am capable while some body parts doth protest too much. This attempt at being the Bard is a scary reality of what a 75 year old is capable of (or not). I share in the hopes it might bring a smile, not just bad heartburn.

Appreciate those words, Summer. Your name makes me think of how children are Summer in a world that can sometimes be a bitter cold Winter. Often they bring to us wisdom beyond their years and make us laugh when it didn't seem possible.

I'm going for a walk, and I'd rather go for a walk this gorgeous morning, is my reply to this question. And, that is that. I kiss the bouncy all-Sunday-dressed-up-darlings goodbye, saying, "See you after church (which is the Mormon church)," wondering if, as they grow older, what questions about religion they might ask. Then I head for the door happy to be in my comfy non-Sunday cloth

Do you know what reason or reasons the "open" church gave? I believe a lot of TBMs would attend a book burning or burnings if they were told to be there. I know some TBMs who do not watch or even listen to "secular" news and do not read, books, articles, internet, that is not cult approved. I have gifted them a few books which most likely hit the garbage when I walked out

Sleep is no where in sight tonight as ESTylenol is failing my aches and pains, so RFM is my rescue. Not sure why I ended up rereading the Nauvoo polygamy essay in its entirety as the reason I started was answered near the beginning. I guess I needed to ache more. This essay jumps from here to there continually, desiring that the reader cease reading before he/she hardly has begun (so they

I was invited a while back to be part of book clubs in two different neighborhoods which were started by Mormon ladies. Attempting to learn more about the first club, knowing that it was predominately or maybe all LDS ladies, I inquired what books were on the agenda, you know, thinking this was a pretty sensible question. The look I got seemed to imply, Really, what does it matter? Then I aske

Sorry, this need of yours concerning Rusty Russ just ain't going to happen as he is too busy demanding the Lord answer him as to why he is not the Pres. already. I'll bet when the Lord begins hearing Rusty's voice he immediately turns the channel. I hear God now. Have a listen. Rusty again? Why does he bother? He already thinks he is God himself so why doesn't he just pray to himself?
