Re: 11-year old Deacons and Beehives

On a semi-related note, I wonder what it would take to change the D&C revelation that kids be baptized at age 8. If I were in charge, I'd bump up the age of accountability to 16. I’d like to see baptismal age bumped to age of majority, to make all equal in the eyes of the church. To quote Elder Chr...

Chuck-A-Rama. Buffets like that are uncommon in Canada, so we went twice.

Change occurs when the pain of change is less than the pain of staying the same.

Re: Bill Reel about to get excommunicated? >:-(

Seems to me Bill has been on a downward trend in regards to the Church since the November 2015 policy, and more recently has distanced himself even more after confronting some dishonesty from church leaders.

Re: Obsession with the Stake

Re: Getting ordained online

My former bishop and stake president got a permit to be a celebrant to conduct secular (non-religious) funerals at a funeral home. Makes a decent fee, and doesn’t seem bothered by it in the least.

Re: If Church's stance on LGBT persons is an Issue for you, how do you Deal with it?

In November of 2015, following the revelation of the Exclusion Policy, I decided I could not sustain or by association condone the Church’s behaviour by continuing to participate. I voted with my feet. Eighteen months later, my wife followed. You see, My wife’s sister is gay. The Church machine chew...

Re: Combining Elders and High Priests

It does start to make the distinction between branches and wards a bit more blurry.

Reminds me of growing up on the Mormonism frontier, and I think there is still plenty of room for downsizing in the average ward.
