Re: The whens, wheres, and whys of speaking up at church

The women here tend to do more cooking, socializing, craft activities etc. Some of them even go on cruises together.

Re: Kirby nails another one - Mormon merit badges

How about the "weird but useful guy at the back" badge. I hold a respectable calling, but certain members still give me a wde berth.

Re: Scientology - What makes a religion evil, dangerous, or a cult?

I don't deny that Dande... that's why I was happy enough to buy and read Dianetics but not to go through extremely expensive auditing. (Some auditing can be very helpful as a form of counseling I'm told and can relieve traumas that are repressed.) There is a rebel Scientology movement called Free Zo...

Just use your data plan and you're back on.
No good to me. I've already run out of data for this month.

If you get the Youtube app you can still watch it.

Re: How do you measure success in "ministering"

I don't think it's quantifiable but such things rarely are.

Re: Scientology - What makes a religion evil, dangerous, or a cult?

I do have a little experience of Scientologists. They are very full on. They got hold of my address and I get regular mailings from them i.e. at least once a month. "Dianetics" is an interesting book with a few good ideas. There are actually one or two good things in Scientology. However, in this ca...
