Re: Monson issued court summons to answer allegations of Fra

I but I still don't think this lawsuit is a legitimate way to address those mistakes - especially given the 7 points in it. In what other way would the church ever fully address these things?

Re: Where to begin?

As I'm sure you have gathered from reading this forum, there are many people who can relate almost exactly to your situation and have your same concerns. Reading this board got me past some hard days. If you haven't read Jeff Burton's "For Those Who Wonder" I'd highly recommend it. It is available f...

Re: Monson issued court summons to answer allegations of Fra

I really hope something positive comes of this, Cwald is right there is going to be a lot of pain for people like me as a result of this. People who feel like me are so outnumbered and isolated in this area it is very easy for the obedient masses to dismiss us as broken, angry, or offended and this ...

Re: Help with a letter to my BP and EQP

T, I'm with Curtis you laid it out there beautifully and I think they'll get the message. However, If this were my letter I wouldn't be asking for release, I'd be informing that I was done with the callings and I wouldn't be asking for permission, or favors, or explaining myself. YOU are in charge o...

Re: Overdue Introduction

I had a similar experience with DW, she's a great, strong, and tolerant woman. I admire how she has been an ezer kenegdo to me throughout the FC process. Sorry Nibbler, You have a bigger vocabulary than me, What is an ezer kenegdo? Ok, I looked it up myself, Beautiful Hebrew language for woman being...

Re: Overdue Introduction

Thanks DJ, I hoe no one gets the wrong idea about me trotting out my mormon heritage. I have never shared that info with anyone before. Very few people, even my closest friends even know my Grandpa was a GA. I just thought it might explain myself a little better. I am not trying to impress anyone by...

Overdue Introduction

Hello all, I have been reading the board for probably 16-18 months now. I joined almost a year ago and have posted little. My wife is on here too, she is "God is Love" and she is wonderful. I felt like I should put something up here as a pay it back/pay it forward kind of thing for everyone who has ...
