Re: "Homesexuals CAN Change..," A giant step backwards for the

I was so angered by this that I finally did a point-point refutation of the talk on my blog. It felt good, in a cathartic, fight -ignorance-with-fact sort of way. I was up all night last night working on it, but now my head feels a lot better (the frustrations stopped swirling around with no where t...

Re: "Homesexuals CAN Change..," A giant step backwards for the

My hope, as I have expressed elsewhere, is that, in the short term, everyone can understand that intimacy is FAR more than sexual intercourse - and that the wide variety of intimacy allowed for heterosexuals can be allowed for homosexuals. Actually, I hope the restrictions can be loosened a bit, bu...

Re: Why Stay lds when you don't live in Utah?

Interesting concept, that of Utah keeping people in the Church. I have never lived in Utah except for a very brief 3-month visit there. I've preferred living in the Hinterlands! I joined the church 10 years ago. Where I have lived and attended church for the past 9 years is in an extremely urban cit...

Re: The Pre-Existence.

Do you think they were teaching "never use contraception" or only those that had no kids, or maybe only 1 or 2 and didn't want anymore.

Re: The Pre-Existence.

Do you have any examples of the kinds of teachings you refer to, scriptures or leader quotes, and the dates of those to know how relevant to current applications? I'd be interested to hear. Thanks. Well, there are all the ones I cited above, including ones from every prophet before Pres. Hinckley s...

Re: The Pre-Existence.

When the law changed in 1965, the rhetoric began to diminish in the Church, save for the 'conservative' leaders of whom the Apostles pretty much to the man belonged. A few noteable exceptions were David O. McKay, Hugh B. Brown and... uh, and... well. I can't think of any others... I don't think its...
