...Almost everybody is on the list anyway, and if you aren't you likely will be in the next 1-3 years (unless you're inactive, refusing callings or are under church discipline).

I am aware fully that this isn't the end result I desire, but I also applaud what has been done - primarily for a couple of reasons: 1) The counsel clearly says members should report abuse to the proper non-church authorities. To me, that simple statement is huge - and needed badly. There used to b...

Re: Suffering?

SD, that is a great analogy. I recently saw an interview with Stephen Colbert with Anderson Cooper from CNN. Stephen Colbert lost 2 brothers & his Father on the same day from an airplane crash. He made this statement during the interview: The exchange, which has now gone viral (I've embedded it belo...

For the reasons outlined by Roy: I find the scriptures have the following non-divine benefits. 1) they are a story vehicle for tranmistting some positive moral lessons. 2) they are wisdom literature. They are a collection of inspired an...
