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 ...

Re: Church to release new public handbook

Wondering how it will compare to what we currently have. I would have to assume some of the stuff that REALLY sounds bad to outsiders will be removed. I read (studied) the 2010 version when it came out since I was new to being in the bishopric. There were some things that I don't think they would w...

Re: Starved for Connections

One thing the church does well (for most people) is the social aspect. Very few other groups have it where when you move in you can ask for people to just come over and move you in, and that is just the start. You get near instant friends. But for some, it does not work so well. One of my big takeaw...

Re: Support StayLDS!

Give me just a few days and I will make my contribution. For all of you that find this beneficial, kick in a few bucks. It might just go away if the annual drives don't get enough money to keep it going.
