Re: 7 years sex abuse of a child covered up by LDS leaders

Most churches don’t claim that their ecclesiastical structure was set up as it is by God, personally and directly, and that keeping things run just that way is important to God. Even the Catholic Church is vaguer than Mormonism about just how God is supposed to guide the church on Earth. So other c...

Re: lds missionary explains the priesthood ban

It could be a troll. Equating 150 years of the entire population of black Africans to Laban, whose head was cut off for the sake of Nephi’s future nation, wow. Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb.

Re: 7 years sex abuse of a child covered up by LDS leaders

Well, members are free to believe they always have the morally superior high ground, by virtue of belonging to the one true and living church. I was guilty of taking that posture for some 40+ years of my own life, so I know where Dan and others who express similar outrage when the church's practices...

Re: 7 years sex abuse of a child covered up by LDS leaders

Rezendes continues digging. This morning's latest AP story in the ongoing series explores some of the history with churches abusing the clergy-penitent shield. This includes, more recently, LDS aggressively asserting political influence to prevent mandatory reporting bills from passing. https://apne...

Re: A gem from Russell Nelson's 98th birthday celebration

Here's a snippet from the baby blessing (pg 265-266): On March 31, 1972, our son was born! Today, in the Yale Ward chapel, I had the great privilege of giving him a name and a blessing. This is what was said: ... 'My son, as we now share the same name, may we share a desire each to honor the name t...

Re: Mormon Stories Question

Kishkumen, I think Binger is making a request for your attention. Any new diagnosis of narcissism needs to be made on the Trump Gradient Scale. Why thank you, Moksha! As a narcissist, I live for any attention I get and don’t want to miss a single dose. Reverend, personally speaking, if I had to inv...

Re: A gem from Russell Nelson's 98th birthday celebration

I recall many lessons from a young age regarding priesthood access to revelation. It has been made clear over and over in the church that subordinates are not entitled to revelation about their superiors. It is verboten. Nelson pretending to have known in advance - prophesied even - regarding Kimbal...
