Re: Pandemic: Life on the ground

Oh don't worry, Gunnar, I'll get my hands on some more. I did some research and I think the woman (who I never saw there ever before and had zero customer service skills--what a pill!) didn't do HER research. :evil: I'll check on that and oh by the way, there is only one library here who has them a...

Re: BYU-Idaho Instructors Fired For Failing Ecclesiastical Clearance.

It’s not a breach of the privilege. Thanks for answering those points Res. I did read this: “A pastor has a duty to hold in confidence any information obtained during a counseling session. A pastor who violates this trust might be on the losing end of a suit for an invasion of privacy or defamation...

Res Ipsa, please check your email. It was Issue #57 of the Salt Lake City Messenger.
Thanks boss! It is indeed on the site and I just missed it. http://www.utlm.org/newsletters/pdfnews ... senger.pdf

It’s just as you described. 😀

Re: The Framer's Coup - Video

Bought it. On your recommendation, this has elbowed its way to the next read on my list. Thanks, Honor. I'll let you know what I think. I look forward to your thoughts, Morley. I think I mentioned elsewhere that what made it valuable to me was the perspective it gave on the entirety of the process ...

Re: BYU-Idaho Instructors Fired For Failing Ecclesiastical Clearance.

It turns out that Buswell had recently opened up to his bishop, someone he saw as a peer and a friend, about concerns he had around the church’s policies regarding the LGBTQ community. The conversation had been a casual hallway chat that, according to Buswell, ended with him reassuring his bishop t...

Re: Vogel on with Backyard Professor Again

Live debate can demonstrate which individual has the better debating skills. It's not a reliable method for getting to the truth. That’s just something people who aren’t certain of their positions say. Could be. Having spent my career in the persuasion business, including observing and participatin...

Re: The Next Mormonism May Very Well Be Liberalism

The whole of Res Ipsa's post is well thought out and worth the bit of time to read. I have abbreviated it for those in a hurry or with limited attention. Dang!! I just finished reading all of Res Ipsa's post, and now I find your summary. Could you not have summarized it before he wrote it? :lol: Be...

Re: What exactly Is Wrong with Polygamy anyway?

Nothing, in theory. In practice, look at the FLDS. If it’s just men marrying multiple women, the result is both discarding young men and marrying off younger and younger girls. On the other hand, I have several friends who have had or are in polyamorous relationships. I don’t think I’m cut out for t...

Re: Will the Republic as we know it end?

Sorry, I tried to be too cute. I was referring to the IRS Tea Party “scandal.” Issa, Gowdy, and other R leaders pretended as if the IRS had targeted only conservative organizations for additional scrutiny on applications for tax-free status for 501(c)(4)s after Citizens United. The fact was, organi...
