This might be slightly tangential... I’m reminded how any time all these holdings and investments come up that the big guys always claim it’s not tithing money. Right! With a simple accounting entry, tithes become investments. So it’s not tithing money (any more).

So, the morg is back to cramming my FB feed with adverts. The latest features two young ladies in one cubicle, presumably companions. One has the obligatory $h|+ eating grin on her face--because everything is obviously so fun and wonderful--and the other is leaning over with an intrigued look, as if the one's convo is so awesome that she just has to get in on it. The picture could just about

I’m sorry to hear all that, Messygoop. Family can be pretty horrible. (Mine is pretty toxic too)

Digital cameras could just have “Mormon” setting where the skin tone is lightened up and Cheshire Cat grins are pasted onto every face!

Some of these efforts are clumsily obvious. Worse, in my family, I always know when I’ve come up in “conversation” because I’ll hear from more than one useful idiot in quick succession. For example, not long ago I heard from both a niece and nephew w/in an hour of each other, but had previously heard from neither in more than 3 years. The M.O. with my family gaslighters is to “w

Yes, sobering. It was only 11 years after the “second manifesto.” When you consider things like 9/11 having been 19 years ago, and the Berlin Wall coming down 31 years ago, it’s clear that polygamy as a practice and an issue was still pretty current at the time. Frankly, people are still practicing it today, and have all along, but at that 11 year mark it had been swept further under the ru

What’s the largest number of response indentations possible on RfM? This may be the most I’ve ever seen! How far can it go?

I think it's almost criminal that TSCC owns the Mountain Meadows, property, including the site of the massacre. But I am glad that the victims' descendants have hung on as tenaciously as they have over the years, and I'm glad the property now has designated National Landmark status! I've never been there, but would love to see it one day. For those of you who have been to the site of the

Yes, movie. There's no point what-if-ing this. What happened is what happened. And it's reprehensible. The only "good" way it could have ended was for the Mormons to walk away, and they did not.

Yep, it’s a code word for Mormons. It signals that they’re all in without having to say anything meaningful or significant, or even to learn or know anything. And it’s never subject to question.

Thanks. Yes, the shunning is actually a blessing. I’d rather be left alone than badgered all the time.
