Re: "Imagine If": A Poem My Daughter Wrote

I like to bump up this thread from six years ago occasionally when we have a bunch of new participants.

Re: "The CES Letter"

Many Prophets of whom we have record had something that could be seen as a prophetic disqualification - and the "greatest" often had the worst. That is true especially of those who were founding figures. Noah got drunk and was raped by his daughter; Moses murdered a man and then let his ego take per...

Re: Getting ordained online

I have said for many years that we ought to encourage ALL fathers, not just Mormon fathers, to give their children father's blessings - simply removing the mention of Priesthood.
