Re: An unintended "consequence" of home church?

When I let my wife know that I no longer believed, one thing I told her is that I planned on always continuing to attend sac meeting with her as I know it can be hard to be there by ones self. Even though that was 2+ years ago, I still have not told my leaders where I am at belief wise. But dang it ...

Re: The thing that started it all

I used to have some of those feelings. Since transitioning I don't feel that at all.

Re: The Church & the Coronavirus

I have a son that I hope will be able to get home from Europe. I too was thinking "what can they do?" I talked with my son and he was upbeat "we are just moving to online". I think that is going to even be less effective and we know in many areas it was more and more ineffective than in the past (be...

Re: Anybody else watch Messiah (Netflix)?

I don't think "the young messiah" is the same thing. I am adding a picture of the main character at the bottom. It was very interesting and I agree with hawkgrrrl's take on it. I wonder where they are going after season 1. https://cdn.christianpost.com/files/cache/image/13/74/137454_w_760_405.png

It's too bad this is likely just a PR stunt.
If this is a PR stunt, then the church needs to hire a REAL PR firm. This is more like shooting yourself in the foot. Fairly soon there will be no more feet to shoot at.

Re: BYU Honor Code and Handbook Changes

I think it will bring more bad PR than if they would have just left it alone.

I did hear there was a small number of students that were adamant "this isn't right!!!". Those individuals are going to be even more emboldened. :(

Re: LDS Church Takes Major Steps in Reaponse to Coronavirus

I heard someone share that this sounded a bit like, "Don't bring that virus to SLC!! Stay away please." I don't think I agree that this was the motivation and the cancellation wasn't an over or under reaction. I can believe that if someone had come and spread it at conference, that isn't the "Mormon...

Re: Educated by Tara Westover

... stuff deleted ... I do and don't see the reason for her inactivity, and she doesn't really talk about that in the book outright. I do wonder how she really feels about the church. I get the impression she is trying to stay away from really getting into that as it is not the point of her book, n...

Re: Educated by Tara Westover

I REALLY enjoyed the book. I don't think it directly is any attack on the church (and Tara makes a point about saying that over and over in interviews), but it does show how a mentally off person can really thrive within the LDS culture. I really am amazed at where Tara has been able to do with her ...
