Reddit

I got into a heated discussion today with a friend and study partner at school today about reddit. I have never browsed the site, but I understand it to be some sort of meta-forum with a massive anti-religion stance, or rather that there is a pervasive anti-religion sentiment among many of its users...

LDS counseling for gays

Was wondering if in the vast sea of mormon themed podcasts out there if John Dehlin or anyone ever interviewed a counselor employed by the church who works with gays to help them become straight, or to keep their faith or anything like that. Anyone know if this stuff is going on still?

Re: Looking for a forum with interfaith discussion

I haven't taken the time to figure out how reddit works. When I do, that may be a good place to start. I'll try your link though.

What is the Maxwell Institute?

I read an article in the Salt Lake Tribune (from about a year ago) that said Daniel C. Peterson, the well-known scholar and church apologist, was ejected from the board of the Maxwell Instutue, which is trying to go forward with a more unbiased, scholarly approach to its' publications. It is now lea...

Re: How to Spot Possible Members of the "StayLds Ward?"

I have been doing just that since moving into my new ward. I have never watched people as closely as I do now. I don't know if anyone is actually part of staylds.com, but I slowly get a feel for those who may be feminists, or liberal, or well-read. I once heard my GD teacher say he had struggles wit...

Re: Elder Snow on the Essays

Re: Harper Collins Study Bible...Thoughts?
