Re: Tom Christofferson Essay "A Place for Our Fellow Saints"

Wow! powerful! I particularly liked a number of parts: 1) Tom theorizes that orientation may be part of our eternal intelligences. This then indicates that orientation is eternal. This turns on its head any promise that homosexual orientation will change in the next life. 2) He agreed with the curre...

Re: Overcoming the constant pursuit of fulfilment

I have been in similar situations SD. I feel that I have certain skill sets that would work well in leadership positions. Initially , I feel very honored and respected when recognized for my contribution or asked to take on a leadership role. At some point the honor, respect, and recognition can mor...

Re: Everything's on the table now

A doctor who misdiagnoses or mistreats usually isn't being "dishonest" either. I strongly believe the prophets and Church leaders are being honest and have the best of intentions when presenting "revelation". If there are mistakes, they are honest mistakes. But when it's brought to light, that what...

I think the rich men in power (or anyone else) who sexually harass anyone should all be run over by a truck.
I just want to point out that this is almost certainly hyperbole. Still, in keeping with the rules of this site let's tone it down.

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

Yes, I know. My point is, that's not a statistic. They claimed a statistic. It's "Not even wrong". I assume that they took that statistic from survey results. As in - 55 % said they were continuing on with further educations after completing the 1 year certificate program. 40% said the certificate ...

Re: A Woman in a Man's Church

Is it the opinion of people here that masculine traits are bad and feminine traits are good? That women should adopt some masculine traits in order to live in a man's world because that's what's been forced upon them and that men should adopt feminine traits in order to stop being jerks? No, I thin...

Re: Everything's on the table now

1) I think the top leadership know and understand some things differently than the average member. For example, I believe that they understand that revelation even at the top is often more nuanced than some may suppose. I believe that they are intimately aware of some differences of opinion among so...

Re: A Woman in a Man's Church

I believe that this post could just as easily been titled "A woman in a Man's World". The description of the masculine group dynamics seems to be how most businesses, governments, and corporations operate. I know that there are some theories that large group cooperation grew mainly out of warfare an...

Re: RM's auto-admitted to BYU-Pathway Program

90% "Ability to learn new skills or knowledge". Yes, I echo Curt on this. I think of it as similar to the mission of a Toastmaster club. The mission of a Toastmasters club is to provide a mutually supportive and positive learning environment in which every individual member has the opportunity to d...
