Funny Post

I thought a few of you might get a laugh from a post I pulled together this week from Twitter. There were two prompts in Twitter that had quite a few funny replies: - "I was so Mormon I . . ." (tell a funny thing you used to do when you were a younger Mormon that you now think is ridiculous) - What'...

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

I actually think Worthen's been pretty great overall, but I have no illusions that the hate speech kid will have any consequences applied to him. A great president < the board of trustees.

Also, minor inconvenience to conservatives > actual death threats and hate speech to liberals.

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

DarkJedi: I don't know if you saw this, but within 72 hours, a petition was started up to eliminate the Office of Belonging. Yep, that's right, the Karens are in charge now, and even though they got to speak to the manager, it wasn't enough.

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

I don’t know what the end game will be, but it shouldn’t be a whole class of people that can’t hold hands on campus. People that are “othered,” fretted and prayed over as though there is something wrong with them. Here's another way of stating the problem in the Church. Which of these two people (i...

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

I guess I feel like it's time to call a spade a spade. They are bigots. The church is FULL of bigots. They cater to the bigots because they agree with them.

Re: Cognitive Dissonance in Primary

Nothing much to add other than a funny coffee thing. My daughter told me in high school that basically ALL the early morning seminary kids developed a post-seminary coffee habit to cope with the lack of sleep, which I found both funny and sad, but mostly funny. Their parents don't know because I'm n...

Re: Definitions from President Oaks

Old Timer: I am not sure that is a fair statement, given all of its implications and what I know of what he actually has said in his lifetime (as well as our actual theology about who is saved and who can be exalted, even from the most orthodox perspective). It might or might not be true, but it is ...

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

individual license over institutional dignity How about individual DIGNITY over institutional LICENSE, because that's what we are really talking about here. As to the idea that the brethren have wept over this issue, hmmm. I have no doubt whatsoever that they are all really upset at being called bi...

Re: Definitions from President Oaks

I'm late to the party on this one, but what he said reminded me exactly of what a sister said in RS about races. I blogged about it here: https://bycommonconsent.com/2017/10/17/erasing-race/ From the post: I was disconcerted in this Relief Society discussion by a well-meaning older woman’s remark th...

Re: Keeping Journals -- What to do with them?

I kept a daily journal without fail until I was 28, then I wrote every few days. Now I write a few times a year. Honestly, I can't imagine anybody would ever want to read these. Only one of my kids has even read the mission memoir I wrote and published. I think writing a much shorter personal histor...
