Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

This is kinda the feeling I'm wrestling with as well. My advice to both of you is just let this pass, as I think it will. Not RMN's finest hour but not something terrible either. He has some good ideas, just not this one. I fully expect for us to have forgotten all about this by next Sunday. My iss...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

We talk about things that do not relate to my life or help me with life's challenges and we elevate them to the status of new issues I have to deal with. This is kinda the feeling I'm wrestling with as well. My advice to both of you is just let this pass, as I think it will. Not RMN's finest hour b...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

I remember a teacher in Institute saying how we should be proud to be named after Mormon. Maybe. What's the odds on this getting buried like the Ensun business (I already say En(d) Sign)? Two out of three ain't bad though. Ministering? Good idea. High priests' merge. Also good. This one? I'll get ba...

Re: Nelson's Version of PoX as Revelation in Seminary Manual

If this scenario had happened - let's say much more recently for the purposes of this argument - then I wouldn't be allowed to have my child(ren) baptized. Not because I was gay but because the mother of my child(ren) was. I could be wrong but I believe because of scenarios like the one you describ...

Re: Nelson's Version of PoX as Revelation in Seminary Manual

I think it was incredibly cack handed. There was a girl I dated for a while in my teens who was bisexual - didn't know this at the time - and probably leans more towards lesbianism than men. If we'd married or had children it is highly likely she would have run off with a woman... If this scenario h...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

While restored might sound good to the head honchos, it also has the meaning of doing up something old and battered... restoration puts me in mind of someone working for years on fixing up an old automobile which barely works when they get it running. Not the image they intended. Really no idea why ...

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

Exactly, they can't control other people and at least it's not an offensive nickname like say, Papists or Holy Roller.

Re: Name of The Church - Version 152

That being said I understand the desire to not be called Mormons, especially in contrast to polygamists. I had an argument with my very orthodox brother in law one time when I explained that the term "Mormons" is non-technical and a fairly general term for anyone who believes in the Book of Mormon,...
