Tevai, If you haven't seen "Office Space" the movie they are all quoting lines from, it is worth a look. My favorite scene is when he brings a dead fish into his cubicle. :)

I wonder if the OP really wants advice and ideas, or only support for bringing the missionaries to the home? IF the OP were truly open to hearing other ideas, the OP wouldn't have made a profane and uncalled for personal attack on Cheryl's sincere and thoughtful post. The OP owes Cheryl an apology. If the OP only wants posts confirming decisions already made, everyone here who has contrib

Am I missing something? Like, the middle of the sentence? For example: I’ll never, except for baptism, let a cute teenage guy push me under water, again? Or, I’ll never, except for baptism, wear a funny white jumpsuit?

Screen name, I am very sorry you are losing your friend. :( I lost friends when I left, also. I think you were very brave to try to reach out to him with truth, though. I didn’t even try. :(

Lottie, I am very impressed with your analysis and *stamina* to read through all that. Better you than me! Your conclusions are very interesting. Thanks for all your work on that, much to think of here! I agree with CL2, report! I had stopped reading anything he posted but never reported him, eternal vigilance, as they say, the price of a good, supportive Board. Jordan, that is something

Options, Dazed... can you buy him a drum set or guitar right quick? French lessons with the promise of a trip to Paris? Scuba diving? I hate to see you abandon your son to the cult! If you could get him interested in something where he isn’t just with cult members you could break their stranglehold on him. What about ballet lessons?

I looked up that term, I kinda liked the concept (I was still 'active' then) but, you know, LDS exercises Unrighteous Dominion over all the members, in my opinion.
