Re: Sunstone - Why I Stay

Also, isn't it a temple recommend question that asks if you attend symposia that are not in harmony with the gospel -- and wasn't that a result of Sunstone? The temple recommend interview questions are available here (I think question 7 is the one you are referring to): http://en.fairmormon.org/Mor...

Re: No more sending unspent funds back to Salt Lake?

Yeah, it's churchwide. The policy was changed a few years ago. I am not sure exactly when, but it had been changed recently when I became ward finance clerk in 2011. As far as I know, before the change any remaining budget at the end of the year had to be returned to church headquarters. Now the lef...

Re: NYT article: John Dehlin & Kate Kelly face discipline

I am reposting hawkgrrrl's reply to my post in twolamps' introduction thread so that I can reply. I hope that's ok. 1. Gathered followers for her own cause, Or conversely, there are like-minded people who all came together and are independent thinkers who posted their own profiles. "Her" cause is al...

Re: Do you think I should ask to get released

I don't know. Can I even do this? Like just ask the bishop to be released? Yes, if that is what you decide you need to do. I teach the class with 2 other guys. One is actually my former bishop (Who actually helped me out with lots of things and understood my situation when I was a Priest age 16-18....

Re: Pres. Hinckley interviewed by Tom Brokaw

Argh - talking about this is just making me want to see it more! Where is that video!? :crazy: There were some highlights of the 2002 interview of GBH by Tom Brokaw on a church dvd called "Friends to all Nations." I doubt the church sells it anymore. If you live in Utah, your public library may hav...

Re: Sherri Dew on what women "get"

I respect Sherri Dew for her accomplishments and her positive outlook. But I disagree with her when it comes to this issue. She has a lot of influence. I am sad to see her use it in this way.

Re: No yoga pants at girl's camp

I guess shapely figures tempt other girls to become lesbians. :roll: We really botch modesty badly, and this might be the poster child example. More broadly, there always will be extremist zealots among us - both inside and outside the Church. Personally, I would talk privately with the Stake Presi...

Re: Hi and thank heavens you are here

Then my son started talking about how much agreed with her and so I checked out her website. I can't see that she did anything wrong. I can't either. However, she did things that the church does not allow of its members: 1. Gathered followers for her own cause, 2. Demanded change, 3. Disobeyed her ...
