Re: "what the [lds] church misrepresented in the AP article response"

I will admit that the church is a large organization and bishops are not trained to handle these sorts of difficult cases. Mistakes are bound to happen in such a large system. Unfortunately in these sort of cases, mistakes mean someone's life is completely destroyed. The church could turn this arou...

Re: Badly Needed Relief for the Holy Ghost

I've told my sons more than once that I consider it to be the greatest accomplishment of my life that I changed the course of a generation by making sure that they were not raised in a cult. Amen and ditto! - Doc Agreed! My 3 sons, and daughter's life trajectories are completely different than they...

Re: The LDS church wants journalism to reform

Like the bishop in my ward who texted inappropriately with one of the young women. This was reported to the SP. Everyone knew about it this insanely inappropriate grooming, except authorities. Bishop was never punished - SP reasoned it would traumatize the ward too much. Bishop moved. Girl is now i...

Re: Denver Snuffer's "Mormonism Live" interview

Back in the day when DS was first becoming known, and before he was excommunicated, I attended one of his meetings in Logan, UT on a Sunday evening in September of 2013. As an agnostic, I wasn't interested in his theology, but I was interested to hear him talk and see what he was all about. The meet...

Dan on Horses in Book of Mormon

Dan's contention, that the Book of Mormon horses all died from Tapiritis, has yet to be refuted.

Re: Radio Free Mormon Magic and Book of Mormon Translation

How Joe produced the Book of Mormon isn’t baffling. There’s nothing special about the Book. It’s poor literature and certainly reflects a 19th century environment. However, there is something that has truly baffled critics and non-critics for over 200 years. Namely, how did Joseph hide his 34 wives...

Re: Nelson’s “don’t rehearse with other unbelievers” talk

This is the same talk in which Nelson labels those who doubt or leave the church as “lazy learners and lax disciples.” Sheesh, as if hard conversations weren’t already hard enough. Statements like these from church leaders make it obvious how completely oblivious they are the real experience of a f...
