Church officials say they are are closely monitoring how to best to keep their 65,000 missionaries safe, especially in Asian countries hit hard by the virus. Earlier this month, the faith transferred 113 missionaries from its Hong Kong mission to other places. Missionaries who were set to go to Japan, Cambodia, Korea, Singapore and Thailand will either postpone or be sent to another country an

Of course not. Missionary work is mostly dead, save for a few places in Africa. Anybody with access to google is staying clear.

They should just call it the Church of Corporation. Can't you tell that the church is truly proud of their amassed mountain of money?

I seem to recall that a conference talk about the correct way to say the stupid church magazine Ensign. It all centered around the fact that many "ignorant" members called it En-sun. Even as a member, I thought the church was beyond dumb to call something that members couldn't say without confusion. They should have called it Golden, or Beacon or Rising Star.

I was slow on the intake to learn that church members place great value on your royal or common mormon heritage. My parents were all wrong for the church. My Mom is educated and had an exciting career. I'm proud of her. Unfortunately, she fell for the JS crappola and one of her bosses was also mormon. She was pressured to join. And just maybe if the real non-mormon working world wasn't so eng

I agree, but I never felt or believed that no matter how hard I tried, how much success I had when working with others that it was never good enough. I always felt robbed of praise. And believe me, I had plenty of leaders who told me so.

I'm willing to guess that the church is darn proud of their recent cash pile. So if the cat is out of the bag (Hey, look at our organization's ability to succeed) they might as well make a statement about it. The lord is pleased with our money makin' skills and we'll teach you too.

In the mission field, a common experience was for elders and sisters to gush and blather about the greatest thing in their life was serving the lord (the church). The obsession was so bad that each person would confess (virtue signal) that they were just fine if they were to die as faithful servants. -Excuse me while I throw up. Only two of us expressed that while there were times that the

*A lot of this was well known, but I was the only one in my family to serve a mission and I had yet to learn all the "correct mormonisms" or culture of unwritten rules. The missionary drop off time at the Provo MTC was between 1 and 2 pm. You were dumped with your suitcases at the front (like a motor-hotel lobby) and the driver of the vehicle was directed where to park. A group of me

I served a mission with a companion whose family had emigrated from Chile. He loved the church very much. He wrote to the mission president on 3 separate times to extend his missionary service for an additional 3 months (27 month vs 24). His home ward sponsored as his mother and older sister worked as maids for a major casino. So he went home and wrote back from his new hometown of Las Vegas a

I can relate to your situation. As my father's health deteriorated, I felt that my Mom didn't give a damn. She became extremely indifferent and even antagonistic. My Dad suffered a series of strokes and collapsed several times before being taken via ambulance to the hospital. I knew that the end was coming because he just could not recover from a serious stroke. The hospital was in a hell-bent h

If previous conferences serve as a guide, then church will wait several days to publish their rubbish. The church's PR group tracks the sound-bytes/quips/tweets from their talks and gauges how well or not so well (PR nightmare). If one of the inflatable gasbags has said something outrageous, then the church quietly goes about redacting the talk. The church can even intimidate their own speakers t

An announcement sent to general and local leaders Friday, Feb. 14, provided information on how to access the new network. The switch from “LDSAccess” to the new network, “Liahona,” reflects the Church’s effort to follow President Russell M. Nelson’s direction to use the correct name of the Church. How is LDS access more correct about the name of the church? I actually read it as

I served as ward clerk back in the 1990s. One of the strangest requests from SLC membership department was to "track down" missing members. This request came in a certified envelope to the church's mail box. It's hard to forget when I had to accompany the bishop to sign for it at the post office because it required both of us to sign for it. There was a standardized cover sheet lette
