Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

Even if the city owned the sidewalk in front of the stairs the church owns the city, so... :angel: People have actually dug up the parcel maps and determined that BYU does in fact own that particular sidewalk. https://maps.utahcounty.gov/ParcelMap/ParcelMap.html Zooming in and clicking on aerial ima...

Yes. The transition to where I have gotten to in life is where I need to be, so I don't see any need for a further transition event.
Stirring the pot... could you say the same a year or so before that transition? Who's to say what another transition could bring.

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

While at the same time these same leaders and members of the Old Guard wring their hands and wonder why 40-50% of returned missionaries are inactive after 3 years and why so many teens don't make it to 18 to even get that far. I'm sure it's because they weren't being good enough at participating in...

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

As it turns out, there may be a standing policy or precedent on washing chalk art off sidewalks that predates all this. Still, not a good look. They should probably pump the brakes and evaluate whether policy overrides people in this instance.

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

My comment was in reference to the video of the young man that poured water on the rainbow chalk and said, "------- go to hell." The quote about condemning the behavior and language was from the official BYU twitter and was in response to that video going viral. After the video went viral the commun...

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

No, Hawk, I didn't but I did see the video of the man erasing the rainbow colored chalk drawing on campus and saying faggots go to hell. I also saw BYU's response: “We unequivocally condemn behavior and language that is disrespectful and hurtful. There is no place for hateful speech, or prejudice o...

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

Found on facebook, worth sharing. This was posted publicly, so I won't mask the name: I am a BYU professor. I do not build walls, sacred or secular. That is not my job. I am a bridge builder. My tools: hammers and trowels, faith and knowledge, no muskets needed. I am a bridge builder. My driving for...

Re: Jeffrey Holland's recent address to faculty and staff at BYU

Several parents have said they no longer want to send their children here or donate to the school. Another damned if you do, damned if you don't. Continue without change, parents won't want their children to attend and will stop donating. Change, parents won't want their children to attend and will...
