It's difficult for me to imagine that a woman would want to do this--legal or not. It would appear that only an exhibitionist would be likely to do so. It is my guess that the church issued this notice simply because "the law said so"--woman should be equal. Dum-de-dum-dum!

The title at the head of this section of the N.P. was: "MORMON LEADERS CHANGE RULES AGAINST GUNS IN CHURCH", quote: "Most Members of the Church of LDS already knew they were discouraged from taking their guns to church on Sunday, but the church is making that message crystal clear by tweeking the policy to prohibit all lethal weapons. The previous policy called it inappropriate

Sincere need for divine help during a prayer. I was politically active in my community and had many enemies among the group with whom I associated. The strain became so difficult that I prayed for divine help. My answer was given me even before I had finished the prayer, with the message, "That's why I've given you my servant, Marty B" (a non-member), who at that very minute call

My husband and I were standing in the fouler facing a long walk to the end of the hallway towards the kitchen (yes, they sill had them at that time), when an overweight lady was walking down the hallway. Suddenly, her drawers dropped down around her ankles. All we could do to save her embarrassment was to look away as if we hadn't seen what had happened--but we did!

Sad. Just sad. When I was a teenager, a P.T. looked into the widow where my sister and I slept. I crept on my knees to my parent's bdrm., and my father grabbed a baseball bat and went out to confront the man. However, by the time he got out there, it was all over (the man had gone).

Is the church really still holding to the WofW reg. tea? Surely their are far more important things to worry about than tea.

My grandfather and his family lived in Mexico at the time of P.V. He was a take-from-the-rich-and-give to the poor man in Mexico (or, so it seemed). He didn't want any paper money, but silver dollar only--and to get what he wanted he would go to American families in Mexico to rob them. So, my g.f. put his wife and family on a train, while he packed his financial goods into a car and drove

My experience with Jews comes from being politically active with them. I was invited to see inside one of their temples. As we walked up the turning stair case, pictures were attached to the walls bragging about who donated how much. A friend of mine (a male) told me that sometimes these framed donations upped the amount donated so that the person would have to donate more than he actually

I can't think of anything that is next to murder. You can't replace a life that has been taken from someone.

"As for Golda Meir, she is one of Israel's great leaders and ambassadors.": Interesting. Mormon women can't hold priesthood authority, yet the Jews have a woman as their leader.

Speaking of dessert living: I was born in a very small town in So. Arizona, in my grandmother's twin bed, however, before I knew how hot hot could be, we moved to So. California. One year, when I was in my late teens, my family sent me to visit my relatives in this town. As my father worked for the railroad, it didn't cost them anything to send me. After the biggest part of the trip was m

After posting the "Outer Space Experience", I shall try another off-beat subject, which I know to have happened, because I have dreams that reveal real things! In fact, I have prayed not to have them anymore because they can be so unsettling to me. Below, are two I shall report to you-all. .

So, does anyone remember the black man and his white wife who were driving through a dense forest when they were interrupted by a space ship which stopped their progress, and which didn't quite touch the ground? The man was taken up into the ship and his privates were analyzed (and so forth). No harm was done him, and he wasn't supposed to even remember what had happened. Even so, a vague

First of all, I said to myself, "Here it is! How else could it have appeared, if not through J.S's efforts? Also, my husband and I once created a replica of the BofM, and donated it to the ward's library--which was glade to have it! Shows how naive we were in those days.

Just thought you might be interested: I was sitting in my rocking chair, reading--but not rocking--. Suddenly, my chair started rocking me spontaneously. I staid sitting, as I certainly didn't want to start walking--and maybe fall down. It was dark outside, and a kindly neighbor came over to ask me if I was OK, and I told him "yes", and thanked him. Then, when he left, I heard

Before I knew him, my husband was a WWII veteran (an aerial photographer) in a one-engine "paper" plane. As the pilot had to drive round and round over a specific spot needing to be photographed he got 'air sick', and the pilot had to land in order for him to recover his equilibrium (telling my husband "he wasn't going to get sick in HIS plane"). While on the ground, and h

Aren't leaders supposed to first take care of their flock? Instead, having the leaders protect themselves and let their followers fend for themselves doesn't seem very Christian.

. Once, a teen male fried-of-the family came out of the bathroom with his pants left unzippered. I figured he was lucky I was there at the time, as I could allert him to his then un-know problem. (Also, note, he--obviously--hadn't washed his hands, making it all the more fun to shake hands with him.) . Next: My husband and I were in the hallway entrence/exit when an over-weight woman was wa

I went to an LDS teen party held in someone's basement. The victim had a blanket put over them, and was told to take off anything they didn't actually 'need'. So, people took off their shoes, socks, etc., until the point of no return. The answer was then provided: What we didn't need was the blanket over us.

At last--I get to tell my Stranger than Fiction story. I was driving my car to church for a 'bake sale', and had my beautiful 4 inch high cake sitting on the seat next to me. As I turned the corner, my cake began to fall off the seat, and so I tried to prevent this from happening---and when I looked up I saw I was only a sidewalk away from a big glass window!

To begin with, I don't care for novel's, as the author can play with your emotions any way he/she wants. However--I LOVE biography's. With that said, below is some of my reading: . "Rosemary, the Hidden Kennedy Daughter". . "Madame Fourcades Secret War", by Lynne Olson.(WWII) . "Miss Peggy Lee, an Autobiography. . "Dutch Girl, Audrey Hepburn and WWII".
