Rusty had to be very disciplined and diligent to become a doctor, plus, of course, very bright. I know a few doctors fairly well, two of them even surgeons, and one's personality to me is a lot like Rusty's. As you described, he is cold and callous to others who do not have the qualities and discipline that he has. It's like you are not even present and definitely not in the same "club&qu

My assessment may be too hopeful, but I think there is a huge number of red flags that are shouting MayDay, MayDay. The very latest in the church's newspaper, the astounding quick new LBGTQ revelation undoing the old one given in 2015, left my jaws gaping along with the Church's coming out with, let's see, 12 revealing essays, the chocolate brown seer stone taken out of hiding, and talks and

OMG....this preaching story told by Arrogant Rusty makes me ANGRY! SO ANGRY! He brags that he was soooo calm, and oh, he could not believe how histerical this woman across the isle was. He never said he reached across the isle to try and console her so my thinking is he didn't. Now, what would Jesus have done in this situation, Rusty? Did you forget your CTR Ring?

Personally, I don't think the MormonCult even knows what the word means. The Cult is well aware of some words - obedience, lying, cover-up, hiding, tithing, persecution, arrogance - just to name a few. But I do think the word respect is missing in their vocabulary.

I'm rather stuck that "true" has to fit in there someplace, but I really like the suggestion of adding "even Jesus"...... So....True Church of Even Jesus But, I have to admit that The Church of Christ Even Jesus rolls much better of the tongue. This causes headaches, doesn't it? (wonder if Rusty got headaches too, or just the pesty Devil hounding him?) Ummm,

With this new name the church could take care of two important details of their Org....a shorter new name PLUS, drumroll please, it could do away with their floundering young mishie program because the name says it all. Now, you might ask if such a name might be a slam-in-the-face to other churches. My reply, along with a muffled laugh, is since when does such matters bother the church? The

In my twenties I was at someone's home and this person was ironing (I know, no one knows what that is) and watching general conference. This got my attention as I could not stand watching conference and here a person was watching it because, when I asked, she said she wanted to. What? I found church speakers (when I attended with friends because they had to be there) telling off members for

"Pitch-perfect Mormonese" (luv it) is a "purr-fect" description of Mormontalk. Years ago a Utah-first-time-visitor Thanksgiving guest was describing being among a bunch of Mormons for the first time. One of her comments was, "They all sound the same and talk the same. I could have recorded the first conversation and then saved talking to the rest by just playing the

Yeah, ole sleazy Joe had a personality disorder alright which is called Carnal Conniving Conman Disorder. The definition of such a disorder is a person, a conman, who is always willing and able to slyly swindle his mark out of their money, labor, and any and all the girls/women in the vicinity. This person has the gift of gab, an unbelievable story-teller, and is a born salesman. One sh

The perrfect mission length, which couldn't be revealed fast enough, is "0" months. LET THE TEENS BE TEENS!!! Let older members WHO WANT TO SERVE MISSIONS be the MormonCult mishies and let the cult pay for them to serve. Amen and amen.

Joseph's Gawd was sure sleeping on the job with this book, and had a hang-up with "and it came to pass" proliferating the beginning of sentences nonstop, saying tons about Joey's taste in fiction. I myself was never one for scriptures, especially disliking the Book of Mormon and the Old Testament ones with Doctrine in Covenants coming in third. When I found out the BofM had a sh**lo

I felt strong, empowered and bigger than life. When the SP called to verify that this is what I "really" wanted to do, then to give me some scriptures of wisdom, I told him I saw things differently and we would just have to agree to disagree. It felt wonderful to stand on equal footing with him, to not cowtow to his every word. The FREEDOM to be my own person, to feel very conf

Persecution is built into Mormonism just as the name Mormonism is built into the cult. The leaders have bilked it for all its worth, using it like the other lies they use to paint themselves pure and delightsome. And, no they will never stop using it. I still have a hard time with the statement made by Oaks that there is no need for apologies; a statement that never even met a rebuke from th

These are such beautiful words of encouragement, advice and praise which, I would also like to second. I would like to add one thought. The MormonCult gives us this unreal picture that if we follow "their" way everything will we sublime and I believe it is human to grasp tightly on this wonderful idea and so want to believe it, and definitely difficult to let go even when we know t

Hi and welcome. Congrats on some big steps you have taken. Changing schools will help a lot and will provide new opportunities to make friends and also to be free of the cult indoctrination that exists at BYU. Do take things slow, be good to yourself by getting exercise, some fun, good food and enough sleep. Remember that you have been in a cult that demands obedience at every turn and has

I second these statements. The Youth Mishie program of the cult is child or teen abuse, however you want to call it. It is wrong on so many levels, and the cult is nothing but a big bully sending these young, trusting, naive kids out to do what adults, if they so decide they want to, should be doing. I encourage you to do all you can do to share the abusive facts with your child.

Thanks for sharing this CNN article and kudos to the journalist for doing such an excellent job. I do wonder if the MormonCult will print this in their newspaper or Ensign, ha ha ha. If the cult is actually being more transparent as boasted, here is a terrific place to have their actions speak louder than their words.

I so agree that your story, Exminion, is inspirational. The nerve of the bishop to chastise you for working on Sunday when he should have been handing you a medal, a VERY large medal, for a job well done.

no, no, and no LB. Wendy has already had this job. If you think Rusty is in charge, think again. My vote goes to Garfield. The cult definitely needs to lighten up and have some fun.

This story is funny and a great example of how entertaining f&t meeting could be. Your Dad put the bishop between a rock and a hard place about chastising him....he first bore his testimony, then skipped out and could sit honking the horn. Bishop can't get too mad at him - after all, he bore his testimony. Let's see, no more RS bazaars where the ladies could make their "own money&qu

This just takes control one step further. Correlation, correlation, and more correlation wiping out the testimony meeting where spontaneity, sincerity, and often humor could be found. Sure makes me wonder how frequently someone has used F&T meetings to present their truth - truth that does not meet with the cult's approval (like the girl who came out to the ward in F&T Meeting that she

Don't forget Stardom, being worshipped by the minions. Think of Oaks and Bednar gloating as they dish out words of guilt and shame as they peer from their thrones located up above the members. The three prizes - Money, Power, and Prestige - until they croak, this to me is their "End Game". The more they get, the more they want. It is addicting.

Yay! Happy that you chose to treat yourself well and be with real friends who have your best interest at heart and not the cult's number one interest at heart (the cult is not worth being #1,000,000 on anyone's list and this number is probably too high).

I think the MormonCult temple is presented to its members as the grand finally, the carrot at the end of the stick, and for sure the ideal, beautiful beyond words Idol on the Hill which, if and when you reach it, you have "arrived". Members are pushed and guilted to make the temple their goal come "hell or high water". Then, for a whole bunch of members, when they arrive,

Each new CEO wants to stand out and leave his mark, and most likely when you are in your middle nineties this becomes even more of a pressing goal. Time is not on old Rusty's side; plus I think he is super enjoying seeing the world. Who knows how many more temples will be dreamed that just have to be built pronto so he can keep on travelin?
