They might watch and cheer him on, all the while smiling smugly and envisioning large $$$ signs around him. I have been on a rant recently with the Ones Sitting on Their Thrones because of some family indoctrination issues, plus just seeing day in and out, weekly, and monthly all the shit these evil clowns pull and get away with. The leadership of the cult is plain mean, evil and deceitf

First, I want to say, Flash, that I am so deeply sorry for your loss of the love of your life. I wish with all my heart I had the ability to bring Kathy back to you. Sooo happy you wrote and shared the story of your mission experience. It was my first time to read it, and I very much APPRECIATE how you courageously brought to the surface your raw, authentic, normal, extremely HONEST feelin

Let's see....THE authority of a GA... Well, first of all, I am changing it to what it amounts to which is THE AUTHORITY THE GAs IMAGINE THEY HAVE. and, to continue.... The authority the GAs imagine they have... is astronomical, but in reality it amounts to the size of a proton (or less). The authority the GAs imagine they have... makes them talk and pray like idiots. The authority

From my experience with some seniors who've chosen to serve missions that was their huge dream, especially for wives who had never served missions when they were younger. These TBMs were so wrapped up in the cult that it is all they ate, slept, drank, dreamed, read and talked about. Traveling for a few was alright, but it did not compare in their "wants" like serving missions for th

I also can relate to how you are feeling. My age is ancient now, right there with T-Rex and, as a child, I had one alcoholic parent and one co-dependent parent. My home did, in no way, foster talking, feeling or kids having their own opinions. The mood was depressed, and I remember always wanting to run outside and be free from being inside the house. For years on end this is just how it was

Yes....and the problem is us! At least, that is what the members of cults have been conditioned to believe. I completely agree that what is needed is for the cult members to hear what others in the real world think. These members live in a cocoon which can keep them beyond insulated and blind-sighted. I think non-cultists are doing them a service to inform them of another way of seeing

I stole that wonderful word from the sound of enraged mother elephants protecting their babies that I enjoyed watching via video with my grandson. It seemed to have the right contrast to the contrived more-humble-than-you-sing-songy-sickening-sweet-tone which seems to get bestowed on each new apostle along with their ability to bullshit.

Agreed that this qualifies as a "bellowshish" GC statement, but only when accompanied by flying egg. "I'm a Mormon, you idiots. A MORMON!" Laughed a lot and thoroughly enjoyed your prose, elderolddog. October General Conference can be your debut. All those in favor, raise your eggs.

Pretentious sums it up nicely. "Showy" he was, and yes! Holland missed the boat by not arranging (you know, by doing that talking to God he rants about) to rent the heavens and all.

I found the following statement in his tirade to be telling..... In its entirety, it reads, "Beloved friends, as we unite across the globe each week in what is an increasingly sacred acknowledgement of Christ's majestic atoning gift to all human kind, may we bring to the sacramental altar more tears for his sorrow and more pain at his grief." The words seem to me to be declarin

I have been watching the live link on the Honor Code Sit-In and I say huge KUDOS to those participating and planning this event. It took some courage and guts, and is definitely what being a university student is all about. There was a big turnout. Never heard how many, but my guess is 300 to 400. The LBGTQ spokesperson (sorry I forget his name) was very articulate, knowledgeable and able t

This makes me irate.... irate like in how I felt about the MormonCult's bait and switch LGBTQ "revelation" handling with no damn apology for all the horrific hurt, family relation damage, and even deaths they caused. Bednar knows for sure that all along it has been the cult who has set the policy, the rule, the demand, that the temple ceremony be kept secret. It has gone on, just

Loved your comment...."Hahah showed these Profit have never really had to do the work of raising a family." Amen and Amen to that. Over and over they show their lack of knowing and caring, like when they call a thirty year old with three or even four young children to be a bishop. When I hear about this occurring, I want to grab the person responsible by the hair and have them be t

And about that MIND CONTROL. It is scary stuff. As I watch it in action with the MormonCult, with those I know and love under its clutches, it so makes me try once again to come up with someway to break them free. So I do try, fail, and will keep trying.

125 or so in the chapel along with crunchy cheerios and little voices....sounds like something I sat through before called SM. Fun to get the goods on how this program is working or not working, right? All I can picture as a mother on Sunday (back in the day) when opened the home door after those hours in church, all I wanted to do was COLLAPSE! But no, that could not happen when kids neede

I did not realize that you and the Correlation Program were such close buddies. Mostly I want to feel real sorry for you that such a thing "came to pass", but, in a way, you seem fairly happy in your obedience non-thinking. However, if you change your mind I know a group on the internet that would welcome you with open minds (and arms). Wishing you a beautiful Spring day.

You best market this idea before the 15 beat you to it (and it will include their special edition for their viewing only which has the enticing vixens roaming about). My only problem with the set-up is that as an ex-mo it sounds way too much like the theme of the BofM, wars and more wars, but a lot of people luv that so there you go.

Seems to me that people usually attend church to learn about their religion, and they, you know, expect those in charge, whether it be a priest or a bishop, to fulfill that role. I cannot imagine that tons of families are holding their hour of teaching each Sunday. Plus, the MormonCult already has Family Home Evening.....well, at least some members hold FHEs where religion is the theme. Al

What bothers me most is that as members get older, into their thirties and are still willing to live in an Orwellian world. By then they have the developed frontal lobe and enough experience to question that whole scene. Maybe I was just lucky, but I never was of the mind set that the Mormon Church or any other authority was going to tell me what I could read or what questions I could ask.

That's interesting about Rusty....maybe he's been touring the world a little too rigorously? I believe they won't mention the LGBTQ reversal because the less they tell the minions the less they have to explain. They've let it out of the bag through the news, and that's enough for those minions. Kind of like the essays. They could have easily announced those at GC, but doing it the way they
