Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

The SP told DT: ...Furthermore, he said he had told my bishop that he didn't want me to serve in any callings requiring me to teach in any capacity and that I shouldn't pray in church either. Then he called my wife in and told me and her that he thought I was just being prideful and that was the ca...

Re: Fanny Alger, First Plural Wife?

My personal opinion? This was adultery, plain and simple. Emma didn't know or agree to it. Oliver (who had been JS's right hand and wasn't yet on the outs - that came because of this) called it what it was. It wasn't honest, open, straight-up "plural marriage" (if any of that crap is truly honest)....

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

People who are under discipline - formal or informal - are expected to refuse when asked to do something they are restricted from. Unlike older times, the ward is not informed when someone is under disciplinary action and it's likely no one beyond the bishop and perhaps his counselors know someone h...

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

As a side note, I would love it and laugh so hard, if they brought you into Church Disciplinary Council for "praying in Church". If I were you, I'd volunteer every Sunday School. They would do a disciplinary council because he is not obeying the council of his SP in that circumstance. I recognize y...

Re: Looks, charm and celestial glory

I suppose it's best of they stay away from Abby & Martha Brewer's boarding house then. ;) That was sort of the reason they said they did what they did after all.

Re: Quick update on another meeting with SP

I'm sorry this happened to you. Know that there are others here who have had similar things happen to them. Truthfully it's hard not to say "We told you so" because some of us did tell you so - but that doesn't mean I can't mourn with you. It really does sound like you were placed on an informal pro...
