My TBM father passed away last week and, with that, my involvement with the church is well and truly over. I left the church officially 5 years ago, but had always respected my father and his faith. I'm SO tempted to ask his Bishop for all his tithe money back. Just to be ugly, I know it'd never happen.

You have a garbage disposal in your library? That's weird. ;P

I currently attend a Unitarian Universalist church. I go for the fellowship and ritual, which I find necessary in my life. I'm atheist. People will do what they find necessary to have peace and joy in life. It doesn't make them fools, it makes them human.

My DH has adult ADHD. He takes Adderall. The job changing is definitely a thing with ADHD. As are the grandios dreams of striking it rich. Plans changing on a dime. Sounds very familiar to me. However, the rest of what you describe is NOT due to ADHD. It's because he's a narcissistic asshole.

Oh, I totally agree with Wally as well. Giving money to that damn church is ridiculous, however he gets the money. :)

I'm not sure why folks get so skeevy over selling blood plasma. If you don't do it too often, it's no big deal. I've done it a couple of times to get us by. Why not? It's your blood. You can't sell any other blood components like platelets or whole blood, which I also donate regularly. I agree that selling plasma to pay a tithe is idiotic, but it's idiotic period. *shrug*

Meh. I'd been out for a long time. My plan was to remain on the rolls until my devout parents were both gone. I lost my mom in 2013. The 2015 Policy about LGBTQ families caused me to finally resign. I told my father that I could not have my name associated, however distantly, with such a hurtful policy. He raised me to be better than that. To his credit, he understood.

It was a Fireside talk by the Prophet. For the life of me, I can't remember who it was, but I'll never forget what he said. He was speaking to the young women in the church and said that even if they were in college, if they had the opportunity to marry and have babies, then they should quit college. That their highest calling was to be mothers and their education isn't as important as that calli

The defense made it an issue. Even during the jury selection phase, they specifically asked if anyone had an issue with the defendant's religion. I probably had an opportunity to bow out then and there, but then I remembered that my father, who is one of the best men I know, is also a devout Mormon. I thought that this man deserved my open, objective mind, just as any other person. So I staye

I don't know about the judge. I don't think there were any Mormons on the jury, based on their confusion about Mormon beliefs, etc. I think it was just me who had a history with the church. Botton line though, his religion didn't enter into the verdict. The man molested his daughters. He could have been Catholic for all it mattered. I have to say though, his wife's testimony in defending h

I just finished a trial today of a Mormon man accused of molesting his oldest and youngest daughters. The jury found him guilty of molestng his older daughter, but deadlocked on his younger. It was a grueling trial. I'm glad it's over, but I'm feeling kinda sick. He will be going away for a long time. His family is irretrievably broken. We made the correct decision, but I'm heartbroken for the

No. The BOM had nothing to do with it. I was at a Young Women's Fireside and the Prophet at the time made the statement that young women in college should leave school if the opportunity to be a wife and mother came up. That her role as mother was infinitely more important than her education.

I had twins who were born in 1986. They were 10 weeks early. The eldest died at 11 days old, the other twin, Emily, died at 1 year old, having been in the hospital, on a ventilator the whole year. Eventually, the doctors determined that she was not going to survive and asked us to consider removing her from life support. The decision to do so was not hard, but very very painful. We chose to le
