  1. You do know that the person that filmed that video is also a victim of sexual abuse right? The rest of your post is pretty much incoherent. Can you summarize your message in a sentence or two?
  2. Wrong, I know someone that went through this and it's a nightmare. I suggest change and no more posturing. Try that...
  3. Bro, you already declared victory. Raise your hands and walk out of the thread. Readers of this board can digest your victory posts. You shut this thread down. I didn’t even address your arguments as you required. Huge victory!
  4. Same with those trashy sit-in displays from the civil rights era. Can you believe they interrupted people eating? What about all the work schedules thrown off by these activists? We’re talking livelihoods here...
  5. Is it not okay to share? My username is the same there as here. Many from that board most certainly read threads from here. We’re kind of shocked at the posts here but that really doesn’t mean much on this board. You want parents of children molested by members to not be able to voice warnings and concerns to their congregation in F&T meetings. Which is worse?
  6. Okay guy, you’re a master debater. Surprised you would pick pedophilia as the subject to display your skill set and declare your victories.
  7. So the video was posting for a rhetorical point? Really?
  8. Agreed, law first, and also alert everyone around this person, especially church leadership.
  9. Keep playing rhetorical games while we talk about approximately more than 40 cases of pedophilia. I don’t agree with your behavior.
  10. Did the families not go to law enforcement? Do you have a source?
  11. Never claimed to be a top rhetorician. Enjoy playing rhetorical games with a real life mass pedophilia situation.
  12. I graduated from the top rhetoric department in the United States. I thought you said rhetoric is your game?
  13. I wonder how many years the three nephites has to hear it.
  14. Sad that the leaders didn’t act and alert the congregation of a sex predator. If we can sing, we can likely talk, maybe a warning could’ve saved a whole new batch of victims. I am surprised that many can focus on a meeting disruption then the child molestation.
  15. Don’t you think you might want to know if there’s a solid way of getting heard by leadership before commenting? Or do you often comment and give advice in areas you don’t have a knowledge base? I would think 40 plus counts of child molestation is an area where you might want to pause and think before typing.
  16. What’s the Church’s guidance regarding how the messenger can appropriately deliver the message? Also, yes, you’re correct, Mormons will turn this off kind of like a light switch and this Includes the members in my family. Lastly, what’s the end game for these two moms? You say it’s not to inform, what’s the end game?
  17. What if McKenna Denson was filming an activist warning about civil rights issues, do we disregard the civil rights issues?
  18. Lol. This is why...when members continue to attack the messenger and ignore the message, the church continues to unravel.
  19. Was there offensive language or did the editor of the video cut names? I think she was warning the membership of what happened. It's got to be heartbreaking. I hope if you're in the same position that people will give you an ear. I wonder if the real awkward position in this situation is that ward leadership knew a member had numerous accusations of molestation and they didn't inform the ward and let that person have interactions with youth (up to 40 plus accusations of molestation).
  20. A very sad fast and testimony meeting. It's hard to understand why the congregation starts singing Jesus Christ lives as a mother pours her heart out about her children getting molested in a highly preventable situation. If they were in my ward I would've shown a lot more compassion and gave them an ear. I am very sorry for what these families went through and I hope that we can show them love just as Christ did for us.
  21. I agree with the editorial. I am very thankful that we're receiving more insight into the Church's business dealings. Many of us misperceived that the majority of our funds were going to those in need. We volunteered cleaning chapels, temples, second and third jobs to build chapels, meanwhile the Church had an immense nest egg for business dealings. One day the Church may decide to be transparent about funds. I am not sure why we hide anyways.
  22. 100 percent don't give tithing to the Church. If you feel that your funds should be used exclusively for maintaining properties of worship and also for those in need then you don't need to donate until your criteria is met. Tithing is a voluntary program. I know many that stopped giving tithing after City Creek Mall but continued pouring money into fast offerings. Then the policy changed (fine print) on fast offerings and they stopped giving any sort of funds.
