Nope, DA. Not what I said, meant, or impiled at all.

We obviously see this differently, so I will end the mini-discussion.

Re: Sheltering Children - Long Term Effects

Evangelical Christian Protestant youth have one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the US.

There is a time and a place for sheltering, but overdoing it and trying to do so when it basically is impossible hurts more than it helps.

Re: Too Many Reasons to Hide a Porn Problem

Fwiw, DA, your response to my comment really had little to do with my comment. You addressed a totally different issue than what I described. Roy's comment is a good summary of my basic view - and I will reiterate that anyone who references their strength as a reason to hurt others in the way they u...

Re: How to be Genuine as a Non-literal believer...

There are a LOT of members who attend quietly, every week, are active on their own terms, within parameters they set, and are nowhere close to orthodox. Some hold temple recommends; some do not. Some pay tithing; some do not. Some hold callings (even leadership callings); some do not. Some give talk...

Re: GA tidbits from stake conference

I have requested in every ward I have attended since I became an independent adult that we don't refer to men and male youth as "the Priesthood" in any setting. The next step is for the global leadership to stop calling the men's session of General Conference the "Priesthood Session". I actually do ...

There is a reason our early years are called our formative years.

Re: Why? Do you have to hurt my Children too.

Those traits for my daughter would include things like liking to read, enjoying anime, being very intelligent and good at school, and being very talented in music. Wow. Every one of these characteristics would be celebrated in most LDS units. I know everyone in our ward would contribute to moving c...

Re: Too Many Reasons to Hide a Porn Problem

Just like so many things, we tend to see this issue through our own lens and assume that lens is correct for everyone else. This is true particularly with people who have high tolerances for something. They chafe at being/feeling restricted with regard to something that isn't a problem for them - or...
