Re: Interactions at Church - Mini Rant

I would mention that some of these folks are not even fully concious that THEY are doing this. Mormons tend to be (IMHO) very passive/aggressive as you NEVER should actually seem angry or even upset. For those that have grown up in this it is just like the air that they breath and they can be assumi...

Re: Missionaries behind closed doors

My experiences is that missionaries generally are a bit tight-lipped, but once they find a companion that isn't going to tattle then it is a whole different story. I served in the mission office for quite a while on my mission and oh the stories I heard. Of course there were missionaries falling in ...

Re: Proselytizing without Eternal Family mention

IMHO - I don't think most 18 an 19 year old missionaries even think of the complexity of the case nor even know the "policies"/beliefs of the church. They only think of the "normal" two people married with a few kids. I have always found it hard to figure out the day to day afterlife relationships w...

Re: Why the Church cannot change...at least not too much

Some of the polygamist sects (in Utah/Arizona) also believe that that this was another example of the LDS church caving into pressure. They consider themselves the "real" church where they still practice polgyamy and don't think Blacks should be allowed to go into the temple or get the priesthood. S...

Re: Comments on Mormon Stories podcasts on the Givens

... The Givens' Mormonism is not the Mormonism I experience. That was one of the times listening to the podcast that I did a bit of a yell in my car. I have read things from those that have been through faith crises, they warn those just now going through their individual faith crisis that the chur...
