Re: Arrington's 9 Points

This is on my (long) list of books to read. It sounds very interesting!

Sick Cattle, Strong drinks for washing your bodies

I had a really cool interview with apostle Lachlan MacKay of the Community of Christ, and wanted to share a few of the amazing things he said concerning the Word of Wisdom. D&C 89:7 reads, “And, again, strong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.” Who washes their bodies?...

Re: Struggle with those against the Church on social media

I have the same problem. I purposely avoid reading comment sections in newspapers because it is such a hate-fest. I think avoidance is the best you can do. There was an interesting post at W&T on this phenomenon: https://wheatandtares.org/2018/01/19/ho ... m-a-holes/

Re: The Rescue is Back on The Menu!

I remember when my kids would be told to apologize to a sibling. They would give this flippant, "sorry." No sincerity or ownership. I understand what you are saying and agree to a large part. On the other hand, our current POTUS never learned that skill. In other words, even if "sorry" is not since...

Re: Joseph Smith wasn't actually a Polygamist...

I know Rock, but he relies on the RLDS for his sources that Joseph wasn't a polygamist. While I know it is appealing, Rock's just plain wrong on this topic. There's simply too much evidence. Here's my interview where Brian Hales refutes Rock's points.

Re: Radiowest interview with Episcopal Bishop Spong re. his book

Yes, we talked about that in our interview. Jerald really took Ed Decker to town after the screening. They were a bit perplexed!

Re: Dieter Update

I can see how Uchtdorf is "uniquely qualified" to lead Europe since he is a European. I wonder about one thing though. For those who think Uchtdorf was "too progressive," if Nelson had a concern about that, would he put Uchtdorf in charge of Correlation? I've heard rumors that the Brethren were upse...

Re: D Michael Quinn -- the Mormon Hierarchy: Wealth and Corporate Power

I found it funny that the anti-Mormons hated it, while the pro-Mormons loved it. One of the publishers made a facebook post to the effect of "hell hath frozen over." :lol:

Re: JS Bible translation

That's news to me, but I'd say that is major admission. I may have to get in touch with the authors!

Re: Gospel Topics Essays: Race and the Priesthood

I talked to Paul Reeve, and he was the source for the Race Essay, although it was HEAVILY edited by the brethren. The brethren don't want to throw prophets under the bus, and the fact that they sort of threw Brigham under the bus was a major concession. Still, the essay equivocates a lot more than P...
