Re: Women's Role In Mormonism

I would like to apologize if I hurt anyones feelings over what I inarticulately said. I honestly feel that Patriarchy hurts men as well as women. I do understand that LDS is the only Christian group that knows of a Heavenly Mother. I just wish we actually talked about Her insted of hiding behind a t...

Re: So, my DH told his sister....

The devil didn't make you do it. The devil can't make you do anything. :roll: In the immortal words of Calvin and Hobbs "humans don't need any help" *laugh* I can see that his talking with Sis could hurt and honestly all I can think to say is tell him that it hurt you. Let him know how much you love...

Re: we is that stupid?

I would like to add a clarification. My friend who had the "false Doct." charge is a professor at a local university and has been for years. She was also on the RS presidency at the time this happened. She does her lessons well in advance and can keep a class on topic with ease. She had chosen to fo...

Re: Obedience to For Strength of Youth pamphlet

The pamphlet IS NOT scripture. These are guidelines/ suggestions; albeit inspired one, BUT they are not covenants. I don't think God is so shallow as to send someone to hell for dating at 14 or for having more than one ear-ring per ear. Stupid members forced these Pharisean rules because they made p...

Re: we is that stupid?

Re: The Twilight Within Us

I'm so glad this had NOTHING to do with those books every teen is reading or I was going to have to get Medieval on the Board! Pema Chordon is a great read about these kinds of topic (balance of light and dark or not letting things take control and of letting go) - wisdom of no escape and when thing...

Re: Beyond Belief by Elaine Pagels

I loved this book! I also enjoyed the Gospel of Judas that was recently published. These scholarly works about scripture reminded me that the article of faith states "as far as it is translated correctly" and that the Bible was written hundreds of years after the facts by men who KNEW the world was ...

Dance of the Dissident Daughter - Sue Monk Kidd

Dance of the Dissident Daughter by Sue Monk Kidd I have loved this book for a very long time. It is an autobiographical account of her search for female spirituality and a feminine side of God. She goes through a lot, like of leaving and joining a number of churches, how it affected her marriage, a ...
