Re: Why? Do you have to hurt my Children too.

Ugh, that really is awful. Hugs to you and your daughter. I can definitely empathize - my nearly 15 year old (who is beautiful, funny, and talented) is treated as a pariah in the YW. Sometimes it's nothing more than a local leader going on a power trip. But the damage is long lasting. I wonder if SL...

Re: GC changes to Women's and Priesthood sessions

I'm not crazy about this change. Women's voices during conference weekend have already been on the decline. Last year there were 2 talks + 2 prayers by women during the four main sessions. In April there was 1 talk + 2 prayers by women. In October there were 2 talks + 0 prayers by women. That is not...

Re: Reaction to Callister's apologetic talk

My issue with this kind of talk is that while it may be faith promoting , it isn't and never can be faith producing. I thought the same thing during Oaks' talk. Anti-anti-Mormonism may feel good while you are writing and delivering or listening to these talks. But is that really the Holy Ghost you'r...

Re: Reaction to Callister's apologetic talk

The BoM DNA essay - though it's still apologetic - opens up the idea that the BoM is more of a conundrum than Callister lets on.

Re: Culture or Doctrine? Where do the problems lie?

That article was floating around not to long ago. Personally, it feels like a cheap cop out, a dishonest move to 1. Declare past doctrine "culture", because you don't agree with it 2. Declare failed prophecy "personal opinion" It's one of the biggest problems I've got with the Church. When you're w...

Re: Oct. 2017 General Conference

I've missed a chunk of conference. Any prayers by women this weekend?

Sorry, Neil, but you'll never be as cool as JRH and the dinosaur meme :lol:
