Re: I hope Sacrament Meetings get better.

I wish they would get rid of the practice of assigning talks on general authority talks. It is not helping the perception of leader worship when we act like only they have something to say. The practice i think was born out of the need they felt to control the message and limit any craziness. Hence ...

Re: The Nature Of Families in Heaven

I wish we'd take President Oaks' talk a few steps further, we don't know a lot about the afterlife, we hope that our theology provides we will be with our loved ones there. I wish we'd focus on the here and now; to me, spending all the time and energy approving, cancelling and working through seali...

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

The church would be better off it it stopped wadding into crocodile infested waters. This issue is a no win for them yet, they keep stirring the pot.

The Nature Of Families in Heaven

I find it somewhat hypocritical that the leaders preach eternal families, yet in reality the doctrine teaches very few families will make it intact to the CK.

Re: Women and Girls can now be witnesses to ordinances

I am not much of a believer in revelation on these kinds of things. I figure almost all decisions like this come from societal pressure. That said I will give them kudos for moving in the right direction.

Change to Garment Question in Temple Recommend Interview

Book of Mormon Translation

That is a lot of speculation for me. Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
