Re: The M word

Some things need to be repudiated, and some things just need to be dropped, imo. Discussing masturbation and oral sex just needs to be dropped - again, imo. It would be nice if materials that reference them were excised, as well - but I'm not holding my breath on that one - although I think that's ...

Re: Sealing ordinance

So, really, is there anything legit about the temple and the ordinances there? That is up to you. They are symbolic. If everything is going to have to be sorted out there then why waste the time doing it here (wrong)? In the class they also talked about how the temple work for someone will probably...

Re: Sealing ordinance

OK, I'll go back to the OP since I'm late to the game. You guys went a little crazy after page 2! Just to warn ya'll I am an "extreme feminist." ;) That reminds me of how I used to qualify that I wasn't a real "feminist feminist"...feminist is such a naughty word in Relief Society. The sealing of ch...

Re: The M word

Well, I hate that the church makes such a HUGE deal out of it for the men...they don't really make such a deal out of it for the women. You know, since women don't have those kind of urges. :roll: :lol: Just yesterday when my VT's were here we started talking about teaching our kids things to keep t...

Re: Political witchcraft

In what context was the comment made? I'm into Witchcraft, too. But I don't think I have anything in common with her. OK...after some googling I think she is....uneducated. Witchcraft has nothing to do with satan. Satan is a part of Christian mythology and has no place in Wicca or neo-Paganism. To s...

Re: the priesthood

I find the priesthood hundreds of times more important, and more relevant, than the Church. As far as women go, when one recieves their second annointing (yep...it's still necessary), this is when women really do receive the priesthood. Until then, women have the higher calling as mothers. After th...

Re: the priesthood

As a woman, I have used the name of Jesus Christ. Like..."in the name of JC I bless you..." It felt most comfortable to me at the time. Just one thing to keep in mind, if it matters to you, is that sometimes your kid won't be "on record" if you have the blessing not at church. Make sure the bishop a...

Re: Morality and the LDS religion. Elijah, Nephi, Moroni, etc.

Oh Tom. I ached over the same thing. I want to cry and scream at the same time. For me, it all became so wonderful when I realized--because of these stories---that the scriptures are not literal. A burden was lifted. HOWEVER, the pain continues when I take my children to church knowing they are taug...
