Answered my own question unless I'm missing something.
You're missing that "rites" is properly understood as "sexytimes."

Re: What are the laws, rites and ordinances that pertain to eternal marriage?

It would be easier to remember what they are if any ceremony ever explained what they are, SD. So there's your problem.

Re: God has Favorites?

We are in the Isaiah chapters now in the Book of Mormon - with a whole lot of "God has a favorite nation - except when they are sinning". Right now, I view the whole "favorite people" thing as an extension of the prosperity gospel cycle, so I am very skeptical. I get why Isaiah was calling Israel t...

Re: My Nephew Met a GA

Here's my list. Richard Scott. Stood in line to meet him when I was at the MTC. Forgot to shave that morning and spent the day half dreading meeting him. Turns out, no big. He was nice. Quentin Cook. I was there when he set apart my FIL as a mission president. FIL asked me to roll my shirt sleeves d...

Re: God has Favorites?

His love and mercy are unconditional. He extends his love and mercy to everyone. We do not always accept it, but that does not mean it is not there. Rather like sunshine and rain? Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, love you...

To refine this a bit: prophecies from the authorities in your own group never fail. Other groups' prophecies ar...

Re: Quinn's Research on LDS Church Finances

I get what your saying, but to me it feels like they have gone way beyond a grasshopper and it feels more like an frog that just can't get enough to eat. Especially when they stand up in conference and say, "If you don't have money to pay the rent or feed the kids, pay your tithing first." I think ...

Re: Busy in the Beehive

I do not think that the busy work is intentional to not let us have study time. I think similarly about anything with a negative side. The negative side is almost never intentional. A few months after we moved wards we went to our original ward X-mas party as well as our new ward x-mas party. It wa...

So why is there so much crying at weddings?
Usually it's onions or lemons. I'm surprised nobody told you. I guess they expected you to just know about it somehow.
