Re: Have you seen this happening in your region of the world?

California just changed the law removing the statute of limitation on reporting child molestation. There have been many lawyer commercials on TV advertising their services. They don’t mention any particular organization, but you get the idea that BSA and the Catholic church are who they are after.

Re: Area devotional?

I read the DesNews article this morning and was struck by this line: “As an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ, I have a solemn duty to face the Lord and deliver his message,” said President Ballard. “His words often include words of encouragement and expressions of love. They also include words of w...

Re: LDS church supports LGBQT conversion therapy?

Does this surprise anybody that the same church that owned the school that attached electrodes to the gentiles of gay men and then shocked them when they looked at Gay porn would oppose conversion therapy?

Re: You Can't Handle the Truth!

It is just human nature to reject unplesent truths. Not just church related, but the Mormon's have taken it to the next level.

Re: What is Priestcraft? Is THIS Priestcraft?

If this story is true, Elder Oaks needs to be careful about evoking the spirit of Joseph Smith in this context. There would be so many reasons JS could not hold a calling in that Stake, or ANY stake in the church!

Re: Rome Temple

If it becomes a tourist site for non-members, like the SLC temple, it will be worth the cost. I don't see that happening. I just can't imagine a person coming home from a Italian vacation, and telling their friends “We went to Rome and saw the Vatican, the Colosseum, and Trevi Fountain. Oh, and we ...

Re: Rome Temple

No matter the cost, I'm sure the Rome Temple is the most expensive ever in modern times when looked at on a per capita basses. There is only 10 stakes in all of Italy. There is more mebers in my county in Southern California than all of Italy.

Re: Is it possible to pay tithing without the bishopric/clerks seeing the amount?

If you sign up for the direct bill pay, make sure you tell them you do not want to have the ward know. That use to be the default, and was like that when I signed up, but I've been told it is not the default now, and you have to ask.
