Re: Do I stay or do I go now?

HI Aaron, I am so sorry you are having such conflict. I understand. Have you thought about therapy and behavior modification rather than the church doctrine that is making you feel bad? I hate to see you give up your life in the church because of an emotional or behavioral issue that can be changed....

Re: In the Church, but not OF the Church

I just read your post, and am so glad you both have freedom to live life and be in church too, but not have it encompass your entire life. However, I read your post about Stage 5 and then read this quote below your post with some other quotes: "Stage 5 is where you no longer believe the gospel as it...

Re: Acronyms & Terms Common to the Mormon Internet

What happened to MST? Or BMW? I was told about the MST when we first went to church 10 years ago and everyone was late, including the bishops wife and kids. Then when I was told everyone had BMW's I was like what is that? Big Mormon Wagon. So all three of our cars: small commuter toyota echo with li...

Re: New! And confused!

Hi Everyone. I started my Stats classes so I haven't been able to get on here much, or anywhere else for that matter! The meeting I didn't go to, I did see one of the Presidency members, and I'm pretty much in trouble. I have been released as the ward choir pianist because I do not sustain the two n...

Re: New! And confused!

Hi Everyone, I refused to meet with the Bishop or any one else for that matter. I did go to church today, and the last song was God be with you 'till we meet again, which is the song sung by a woman at church with a beautiful voice, to my BFF that died last year. I burst into tears and cried uncontr...

Re: It gets better video for gay mormons

I am an advocate for equality and stopping discrimination. I love this one. I hope it comes out okay. I am grateful our church members are starting to understand same gender love. Because I did not grow up in the church, and grew up on the S.F. Peninsula I had no idea there was discrimination like I...

Re: New! And confused!

Hi Doug, Thank you for your warm remarks. :) The Bishop Ric changed when they took the 1st counselor out to be in the Stake. The 2nd went to the 1st position. The 2nd is a man who sells Reliv and gets people into horrible debt by passive persuasion. I fell prey to that some years ago and took a long...

Re: Positive way of effecting change

Hi ~ I am in a doctoral psychology program and we just finished studying bullying. The best way to take care of bullying is to confront the bully, the parents of the bully, the every body around the bully, everyone in the environment that is affected by the bully. Hiding bullying regardless of who's...
