Follow the money. Always. Chapels do not provide any measurable ROI. Temples do. There is a finite and ever decreasing amount of funds available. 2 hours = 5 congregations per building, or 4 with no overlap.

LOL. Unfortunately for Nelson, that genie is not going back in the bottle. My DW newest garments are damn near sleeveless and show more cleavage than I thought possible. The women are the only thing keeping the ship afloat. Make them wear long sleeves and gloves, they will revolt.

A few of you here know me and my DW, so it is with some trepidation that I post. But I am so excited for her. So those that are still connected with my DW, please do not say anything until she comes to terms with what she is thinking....what I think she is thinking. With that said, my DW's shelf has finally broken, or at least suffered catastrophic (i hope) fractures. She has always gon

Nope, BYU works. The Mormon rebranding is the results of a small minded man getting power and getting revenge on those who opposed his ideas. He dropped to two hours but the hammer is coming down on tribal Mormons. Get in or get out.

I believe that Mark Hoffman destoyed Hinkley testimony and he made a conscious decision to continue to propogate the lie of the church because he thought the good outweighed the bad.

When asked if he was a prophet, Hinkley answered “the members sustain me as one”. In other words, no. After the internet’s exposed the multiple versions of the first vision Hinkley said: “That is the way I feel about it. Our whole strength rests on the validity of that vision. It either occurred or it did not occur. If it did not, then this work is a fraud. If it did, then it i

I have been saying for years the church is cash poor. Many of their for profit businesses lose money, in fact I would not be surprised if they were as leveraged as the government. Two hour blocks make it less intrusive into members lives as well. Same reason subscription services are so profitable. As long as it is only a little annoying people will be to lazy to endure the pain of change.

Gordon was thoughtful. His time was over. After 40 years of guiding the church, he knew he had done some good. Even after the Hoffman forgeries had confirmed what he had already suspected for years as a special 3rd councilor in the first presidency. He and Tom had discussed it, afterword. It was tough to agree to continue to perpetrate one of the biggest lies ever told, but the church did so

Off the top of my head and the most glaring, when asked the question “Are you a prophet?” He answered... “The people sustain me as one.” The second, which he said many times... Paraphrasing - The church rises and falls on Jospeh Smith, he was either a prophet or the greatest fraud ever perpetuated on mankind... It’s like looking at one of those pictures that can be a youn

...internal battle that was going on in the 12. They are ramping up the control. It is only going to get more fun to watch. This also gave me a moment of great clarity. I have talked about this before, but Hinkley told everyone that the TSCC was bullshit. He said it in public, in his writings, to anyone who was listening. In fact, In another two generations he will be credited with the ini

So DW is getting more disillusioned with the church by the day, and if the next bishop is who I hope it is, she will quit going. But here is where I need help. I need a place to socialize that both of us are invested in. A different church is a no go, and we don’t have that many shared interests. Living in a major metro I know there is something, I just need to find it. For those of you

To keep it from escalating it is all in the setup. Remember, mormons are mormons because of how it makes them feel, not about logic. I asked my dad this series of questions: Do you believe in personal revelation about your own life? Do you believe that God cannot lie to your heart? Do you have faith that any person can find the truth through fasting and prayer? Once he has answered

I didn't take her with me when I left. I wish I had. Why don't you believe? Why is it not for you? And can you play the game? Lie to those who are your friends and loved ones to live up to an expectation that is impossible? Talk to your wife. Take her down your path. It is about the family unit. She may want you to lie. The pride tied up in priesthood holders by women is retarded. T

Doesn't matter whose idea it was. Whether his or yours, it put you in charge of and responsible for for his actions. That changes the dynamic of the relationship and puts you in an unequal position.

The minute you "put parental controls" on your home you ended your marriage and became his caretaker. I suspect you were celebrating 39 years of dysfunction. Good luck with whatever happens, but understand the level of co-dependence that you probably have on each other is going to make you accept things you shouldn't and him to do things he otherwise wouldn't. It will also make yo

One final note. The by-the-book-conservatives just took over the presidency. There will be some backlash on many of the more liberally minded members over the next 2-3 years. Duck and cover. Lie like your degree depends on it.

You misunderstand. I do not promote outing people's issues. I promote exposing the ugly underbelly of the church. And the lengths good people go to maintain hope that the church can deliver the fiction of an "eternal family". And expose how her bishop set her against her him by using emotional blackmail and creating FUD.
