Re: On DFU Making it Back to the FP or Becoming Pres

Yep, Mom, I'm there too. I've been an an emotional roller coaster the past couple weeks with this, some stuff at work, and a death in our ward (and the most moving rendition of "How Great Thou Art" ever). I'm just having a hard time getting over it. Thanks for the analysis OON. There certainly is a ...

Re: A Message from Silver Fox

Sheldon, DN may not have published anything "negative" it but I bet the Trib would. What I think is notable is that he said anything at all. It shows that at least he pays attention to what people are saying and thinks it worth responding to. And, I think what he said is very classy. It would be ver...

Re: How Candid are you with Non-Members about the church?

Roy, I have an acquaintance (former co-worker) who is JW and we're close enough that we have had some candid conversations about each of our churches and some beliefs. She thought, for instance, that Mormons can go to BYU for free (some do, of course). At any rate, I agree with you - much of what sh...

Maybe DFU should contact Denver Snuffer and say, "Hey, I know you don't vant to be the leader of your movement, but I am willing and capable. Lets do it together!" :D
:lol: Yeah, except I don't think Snuffer is on track. At least I could follow DFU.

Re: New First Presidency of the church

That is a good point GBS. As you allude to and Mom points out, DFU is popular among the general membership because he's a good speaker and he's sincere among other things. I never feel like he's a parrot. I have even said jokingly that if DFU wanted to start his own church I'd be one of the first in...

Re: Negative Consequences of Excommunication to the Church

I agree that guys like Quinn don't have anything to lose and are thus freed by excommunication. The only thing they really lose is dissemination of truth to those who won't read their works because they've been ex'ed.

Re: How Candid are you with Non-Members about the church?

I don't wear the fact that I'm Mormon on my sleeve. The neighbors know, but mostly because of my wife and kids and because we've all been neighbors a long time. There is a newer neighbor kitty-corner across the street, they probably don't know unless someone else told them. (I don't, however, think ...

Re: New First Presidency of the church

Let's not make any mistake. This move marginalizes Uchtdorf. The FP speaks about 3 times each in GC. The Q12 each speak only once.

Re: Help me understand Stake Conference

These broadcast things, which I dislike, are something new in the past few years. Regular stake conferences are just like they've always been, twice a year, three sessions, every other one with some sort of visiting authority (almost always and area authority seventy). The broadcast ones are every o...
