Free entry to the holy club house with access to the handshakes and funky outfits. That just can't happen. Too many people have been paying to play for way too long. However, I could see a maximum pay option. Once you have paid in a certain amount you are good to go. Kind of like free or really cheap ski and golf for old geezers. It could be a new kind of badge - look at me - I have p

Good point. He is sitting in Plato's cave and just can't understand why those who left the cave and see the light of freedom can be happy in the real world.

This also brings up the idea of income inequality which is very destructive to individuals and the economy as a whole. If kids of tithers can't go to college because mom and dad pay tithes instead of tuition it becomes harder for them to move up? If they think God will bless them they may be waiting a long time. The upper echelons get richer and richer while average Joe tither get pushed farth

You can pay your kids tuition for a year or buy them an old car. The Mormon approach to Tithing is evil and NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY.

Recently my cousin and his wife went on mission. My cousin's wife is super TBM and had a revelation they needed to go on a mission they could not afford. To make the mission happen they asked for donations, sold her tupperware collection (no joke) and what really annoys me is they called my mother who is almost 90, has dementia and very high living costs for full time care AND ASKED FOR MONEY f

This all seems to have blown-up even more after the gay marriage issue was settled. This is a huge thorn in the side for Ark believing crazies and Mormons etc. They always said is was a sign that Jesus is a commin. No Jesus yet, no calamities, no nothing other than the religious nut jobs want a law allowing them to discriminate, hate and prop up their cults.

I'm glad she is calling them out on polygamy, but I don't why she wants to play both sides. The summary in the web reference above includes this: "In beautiful and loving ways, Carol Lynn shares reasons for seeing this conclusion about polygamy as an error of Brother Joseph’s as the most forgiving and healing stance toward it we can take, and one that she believes Joseph himself would

Humans are instinctively good. The evil comes from the conflict between the instinct to be good and the consciousness that evolved after the instinct was in place. The constant conflict between the genetic orientation to be good and the human consiuosness is what leads to good and evil or the human condition. IN short, humans are psychological basket cases. However, if you know this you can de

The Three Nephites/Bigfoot move around helping people. The Lord won't allow the three Nephites/Bigfoot to ever be captured and when Jesus comes again each of the Nephites/Bigfoot will take their place with the head Bigfoot (John) as a GA!

Miller Uhrey did not say they found the answer to life. They just said some of the building blocks of life (amino acids) were present on the early earth. Their work has been incorrectly interpreted and has been repeated. No one knows exactly how it started. Stuart Kauffman and others are working on creating life from the lifeless (elements). Their work is referenced here. https://www.ed

Before we finally stopping going to church our youngest daughter was asked about her goals in life etc., in a young women's class. The obvious answer they wanted and most kids gave was - I want to be a wife and mother - However, my wonderful kid said "I want to get an education and I'm not sure if I ever want to get married and have kids." The YW teacher then told my wife about

One of the biggies is no archeaological or written evidence of the Exodus with Moses. More or less the same as the Book of Mormon. No evidence and no credible scientists do any work on it because it is a myth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Exodus

Except in BIC cases and cases where there is no Internet (if there any) how can the church possibly grow? You would think before joining anyone would do a search of the LDS church online and find out a lot of stuff. Especially on YouTube. Gotta be a reorg or a lie. Jeff is experienced in lying on camera - reference BBC documentary

My view is he went into it knowing how it would end. "If ye are prepared ye shall not fear" or lose it. The stake pres and high council were no doubt told exactly what to do by Chruch HQ PR Dept. The Dept that seems to now run LDS Inc. The statement the stake pres read was probably vetted or even written by Chruch HQ. They knew this would be high profile.

Push the apocalypse talk, demand obedience and hope for the best. The can't come clean on the past. Its too devastating. However, I gotta say the "new guys" are not doing much better with the "no baptising children of gays" etc.. Off to a great new start!
