Re: Lindsey Stirling - Rock Star

You could have at least put a NSFMM's (not safe for mormon males) in the title.

So I just got back from experiencing the temple and here are my findings:

If you're just wanting to get to the celestial room then do sealings or initiatories. Won't take as long and maybe you can get something out of them that you don't the endowment session.

Re: How to not drive people away from the church

I think losing my friends is what's been one of the hardest things for me during my FC. I moved away from my ward about the same time but I've come to realize that the relationships were only sustained through church. That's when we saw each other, made plans, etc. Once that was gone, so were the re...

Re: Experimenting and Experiencing

Regarding porn use, I think it important to mention the male-centricity of most of it. Usually, the men are the arbiters, the agents who engage and the women are there to fulfill his desires. I think this is especially problematic for people who have never had any sexual experience in real life, as...

Re: Bitter ex-members the outliers?

Most I know seem to be more angry/bitter than the other way around. When your world is turned upside down it's hard not to be hurt and feel angry. Some feel betrayed and lied to. I don't agree with the approach to dealing with the pain but I understand it. What I don't understand is I see so many of...

Re: Culture or Doctrine? Where do the problems lie?

The Q15 is doing some similar things. There have been changes to how ward councils are run, for example, to try to involve women more. What they're too reticent to do, though, is change the doctrine. For example, as long as the idea that group X is somehow less than Y is supported by doctrine (e.g....

Re: Culture or Doctrine? Where do the problems lie?

Thanks for the comments everyone. I think you could consider church history a third category. I think this is where I was torn. A lot of my issues are tied back into church history and so I can see how some could say that they aren't doctrinal issues so I need to get over it but I can't do the menta...

Culture or Doctrine? Where do the problems lie?

I didn't want to derail another thread but a recent post by DarkJedi reminded me about this. I recently opened up more to my sister (have yet to tell anyone else) about where I stood when i was visiting her recently. A week or two later she sent me a text with a link to an article that she thought w...

Re: How forward should I be about my disbelief in dating?

I think you made the right choice. I will also say, don't discount other dating sites. The LDS ones are generally filled with more orthodox mormons which makes sense. If you go to other sites you'll find mormons (some, not all) who are more open-minded and willing to date people with differing belie...
