Re: Recycling etc

I'm totally floored by this attitude. I live in Scottsdale where people are wealthy and entitled and everyone here recycles. I don't understand people who don't. My parents are very politically conservative (let's face it; they're old), and they not only recycle, but have even been known to compost...

Re: Struggling with Joseph Smith

Usenet or was it teletext? I remember usenet, but what was teletext? That must be where David Whitmer posted it. :wave: To change the suject back to the OP, I think the foregoing has been interesting, but the problem comes when we examine what the church says about JS and expects us to believe. Thi...

Re: Marriage is taking a hit

Also, try Marriage Builders. Silent Dawning recommendeds it on this site, and DH and I have started using the program. It's not an LDS thing, but it is an excellent way to strengthen a marriage in very many different situations.

Re: Navigating Sexual Morality Outside the Believer Narrativ

I was going to write a long response to ScoutMaster's post, but I realized it wouldnt matter what I wrote because I'm a woman (and yes, I know that a small number of women like porn too. I actually know a couple that got divorced because the wife looked at porn and then it wasn't enough, so she chea...

Re: Navigating Sexual Morality Outside the Believer Narrativ

Mr. MockingJay is a lucky man. Sorry that his viewing of porn hurts so much. Probably just as much as a wife that is proud of her title as sexual gatekeeper to make sure their husband does not get too carnal by having sex more than a few times a month at most. OK, LH, I gotta say you lost me on thi...

Re: Discouraging Incident

Don't let them occupy space in your head without paying rent. :thumbup: Great point, Mike. I was telling my son the other day that he worries too much about what others think. I need to turn that back on myself I guess. I'll try to remind myself that my beliefs have value even if they don't fit the...

Re: Navigating Sexual Morality Outside the Believer Narrativ

There are people who can watch porn occasionally and people who can't - just like alcohol consumption. However, to say that porn really isn't that much different or worse than masturbation is . . . let's just say it is patently and obviously inaccurate. Also, there are multiple reliable studies tha...
