Re: Liberalism vs. Progressivism

Loved your comments, Hawkgrrrl.

Re: "Transfiguration" of Brigham Young

Yes, and no. Evolution and creationism really don't matter to me that much in my daily life. I don't wander around wondering if my genes are handed down from fish and slugs... what does matter to me is the social gospel, and I suspect right-wingers use creationism to deflect from our duty to the po...

Re: Post-Mission Arrogance

A couple of ideas: Idea 1: I think we, church members, create an atmosphere where this sort of self-centered mindset can thrive. We tell our missionaries how amazing they are and what great things they've done and how they compare favorably to their peers who didn't serve. Some of them catch hold of...

Re: Professing beliefs I don't hold to keep the peace at hom

new6, You are definitely in a tough spot and I think it's kind that you don't want to undermine your wife's faith. I'm not sure that just saying what she wants to hear is wise though. It may be kindness which kills in the long run. Being dishonest may undermine her trust in you. Certainly, you don't...

I would love the chance to meet everyone, too. Is there a chance any of you are in North Carolina?

Why I stopped wearing my cross?

I'm not really a jewelry wearer (don't even wear my wedding rings) and I just misplaced the cross - it's probably in a drawer somewhere...

Re: Duty and Beauty - from mercyngrace

...the joy of discovery has been greatly offset by the dread of not belonging, of knowing that my honest thoughts would set off the alarms. Thanks for the post. Yes, yes, a million times Yes! Things I do which I feel raises an eyebrow from time to time? I wore a cross to church for a while. I quote...

Re: StayLDS Ask-Me-Anything on Reddit

I am probably not the best guy to represent StayLDS. I may pop in to see what is happening though. You can validate that it's a supportive site which embraces an open-tent Mormonism. Even aliens are loved here. (PS long time no talk, cwald! I lost my login for MDB and can't seem to get it through n...
