What's in the Granite Mountain Vault?

I read with interest a story about the Utah Department Of Transport looking to facilitate the rich skiers by building a large "gondola" to ferry people up the mountain. While it will take years before skiers could be gliding through the skies of Little Cottonwood Canyon on a taxpayer-funded gondola,...

Re: DCP shares his own witness of the Book of Mormon

The most compelling and sincere part I think is at the end. He says that if the Book of Mormon is true, then so many wonderful things fall into place. God cares about us, death is not the end. Life is not meaningless. Families will be together forever. Billions of people enjoy the feeling that God ...

Re: Colorado shooting suspect appears to be LDS

Can the title of this thread be changed to, Colorado shooting suspect is part of the LGBT community and identifies using they/them pronouns? Apparently "THEY" has not attended church since "THEY" were 14. The non-binary identifier is more accurate. No. The Church has confirmed the suspect is a memb...

Re: Question for KevinSim- biblical gospel articulation request

Of course Mormonism replaces that atheistic fear with the fear that if you are not good enough you will lose your family for eternity, and that (speculatively) they will forget all about you so that they can be blissfully happy. Malkie, I have been exposed to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-da...

Re: Interpreter Drops a Thanksgiving Bomb on Kofford Books

Further complicating the situation is that it is unknown whether any of the terminology and ritual dialogue patterns that are similar in Freemasonry and the temple ordinances were originally part of the endowment as given by Joseph Smith in the Red Brick Store or were introduced later as part of th...

Re: 1899 on Netflix

It finally hit me later in the series that it might be the same creators who made DARK (it is), which I really liked. DARK is better, they had to do more with ideas than rely on special effects. My main objection to 1899 is that, in DARK, you can identify with the family because they establish ever...

Re: First Presidency Statement Opposing Any Efforts To Give Legal Authorization To Same Sex Marriages

I think you may be viewing efforts by the church to ensure they are able to legally operate according to their beliefs as evidence that they hate gay people. This is, of course, incorrect. Was Prop 8 because the Church felt love towards the gay community and wanted to help them obtain the same mari...

Re: First Presidency Statement Opposing Any Efforts To Give Legal Authorization To Same Sex Marriages

What you are describing is a caricature of church leaders. I'm referencing a number of things General Authorities have actually done and said over the years. Including the deliberate covert weaponising of members during Prop 8. Including talks about people "choosing" to be gay. Including policies b...

Joseph Smith - a symbol for World Peace?

In what can only be a massive error of judgement, a bronze statue of Joseph Smith has been commissioned and installed within the World Peace Dome in India. A 15-foot-high bronze statue of the Prophet Joseph Smith was unveiled on Tuesday, November 22, 2022, at the World Peace Dome in Pune, India. The...

Re: Colorado shooting suspect appears to be LDS

And what of that small handful of critics on whose speculations I commented yesterday? Well, it seems that President Oaks and Elder Holland are somehow still to blame for Mx. Aldrich’s lethal rampage. Moreover, and very damnably, my brief comment dehumanized and minimised the Colorado Springs attac...
