    Last Movie You Watched

    I thought the very same about the portrayal of his relationship with Mary, and she knew him before all the fame and not a roadie and they certainly did bond. I watched one youtube where it told that he was bullied as a young child in his hometown in India, and they called him "Bucky" because of his front teeth of course. It's too bad that they didn't have the medicine for Aids, that they have now. Like how long has Magic Johnson been around. Maybe he contracted something a little different though.

    This American Life

    I listened last night. I agree with Eric Hawkins that there are thousands of these interviews and that not all are as bad as the ones mentioned. But I also believe there is another aspect to this story and that is the sexual dsyfunction many feel after the guilt they feel with anything they've done wrong in the eyes of the church. In fact one gal mentioned having a bogeyman (probably not her words) on her back while having marital relations and not enjoying it. And if I remember right, there is a book for LDS married couples to help them with these problems, it is so widespread. So another componet to add on to the problems with these interviews and other messages in instruction in church. Below is a short list of many that I found online. Way more than the one I was thinking of. Seriously, this needs to be addressed! https://www.amazon.com/What-Your-Parents-Didnt-about/dp/1508608873 https://deseretbook.com/p/they-were-not-ashamed-strengthening-marriage-through-sexual-fulfillment-laura-m-brotherson-51575?variant_id=51521-paperback https://deseretbook.com/p/knowing-her-intimately?variant_id=146478-paperback http://www.ldsliving.com/5-Books-That-Will-Strengthen-Your-Marriage/s/78009 http://www.ldsliving.com/How-I-Overcame-Intimacy-Problems-as-an-LDS-Newlywed/s/76176 https://ldsmag.com/article-1-7840/ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1352636/Mormons-discover-the-joy-of-sex-but-only-with-a-spouse.html

    But there were a lot of accuracies, so basically it was like a lot of "true" stories, but the gist was enough. I thought more true than not. http://www.historyvshollywood.com/reelfaces/bohemian-rhapsody/

    Last Movie You Watched

    I went to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' last week and loved it. It's a movie about the group "Queen", and it centered around Freddie Mercury, the lead singer. I knew of their hits, just never really knew the people behind the music. Glad I learned all about this group. Now all I do is watch youtube's on them. I guess back in their heyday I was listening to a lot of country. The actor that play Freddie did a phenomenal job! In fact all of the actors were so close to the real people, you'd think it was them. Also, I know it is known that Freddie swore a lot, so I was so surprised there was only one "F" word and it's a PG-13 rating.

    Anniversary of the “The Policy”

    This is ridiculous Hamba, we shouldn't be comparing their sins with being gay. Gays were born this way, they didn't choose it. What if someone told you that your attraction to women was wrong or a sin? And what if you better never think of wanting to marry someone you were in love with. And what about the gays is a pedophile, or a child abuser? Think about it....

    Marriage covenants

    Trolling? Changed has been here long enough to know she's not a drive by. Maybe you think I troll though and I'm here constantly for years.

    This should be pinned, for all to refer to on this topic!

    Sam Young is Excommunicated

    He's not against the church teaching the law of chastity. From what I've seen, he's against the discussion between a LDS PH leader and a child/youth about the things they are doing to break the law of chastity. I guess he feels it can be abusive, for the recipient because the possibility they could be one to groom them, or put things in the mind of the child/youth that could later harm their thinking somehow, shame and guilt. They aren't trained on how to ask or delve into chastity problems or non problems. But I need to say, I don't see the harm if a youth or single adult wants to speak to a PH leader about some problems they are dealing with.

    I hope you don't take this wrong, if you've paid attention to some threads you may think I'm a nut, but I've read good things about CBD oil for cancer, if you can try that in the meantime.

    Odd question

    Do they give any 8 yr. old a mental test before baptism? I say go ahead and baptize any 8 yr. old child if they desire it. No matter what their mental capability is as long as it won't hurt them mentally or physically. What is the harm, because actually, IMO, no 8 yr. old really knows what they are getting into as far as the church's hidden covenants, sure they understand to follow commandments somewhat. But they can sure get the feeling of being closer to the Saviour, why deny any child that, that is of age? After working for several weeks with a Down's Syndrome child, I know without a shadow of doubt she would be a good candidate to be baptized. It's for the parents at that age as well, why deny the child's parents, if they have a mental disability? Crazy!

    Anniversary of the “The Policy”

    (bold mine) Absolutely not, I'd say it comes from those that rose above the policy and reached out in love to their gay loved ones, 100%! Or, if you are saying once the church came out against having gays be members, who are living the "lifestyle", are able to finally be free of the chains of the church, I guess I can give you that.

    Anniversary of the “The Policy”

    Wow, my post came off badly. I hope you don't think I think there shouldn't be room. I just see that the door has been closed since now they're an apostate if they marry in a SSM.

    Anniversary of the “The Policy”

    I feel like there is absolutely no room at the inn for the gay community. And if the church even wanted to, it can't get out of a "revelation" that Pres. Nelson stated came from God, and seeing how long it took the reversal of the "revelation" on blacks having the PH, it may take a long, long time before the "policy"will be removed.

    Readstoomuch, I'll bet that the treatments for this will improve and you've probably got a lot more than 20.
