    President Nelson Comes to Seattle and Vancouver

    I'm in Oregon and we were instructed not to try to attend. That all tickets had been disbursed, and there would be very little chance of getting tickets in a standby line, but more importantly, to give Washington residents a chance to attend.

    A Fourth Watch God

    Someone loaned me this talk on CD several years ago. I listened to it so many times (usually on my commute) , that I went out and bought two copies: one for myself and one to loan. I haven't listened to it in a while. I really need to put it back in my regular rotation.
  3. And what about what McKenna (June, before she changed her name) did to male missionionaries in the MTC and while on her mission? Does she just get a pass?
  4. Tried to PM you regarding additional information about Denson that is available publicly, but you don't accept PMs.

    Woman Denied Temple Recommend for ...

    I wouldn't go public. For the reasons you mentioned, and also for the inevitable attacks, as is evidenced by some of the posts in this thread.
  7. This might win the award for most hypocritical post ever.

    Woman Denied Temple Recommend for ...

    The explanation was easily found in a number of posts made by Juliann prior to Scott's linking to an article. The information was readily available for those who actually took the time to read.

    Same here. There are no words to describe the depth of the emotions I felt.

    On Jewish/Mormon Relations

    So you want Jews to respect your religious practices, but you see no reason to respect theirs. How hypocritical. I was an Orthodox Jew before I joined the church. I am grateful that I didn't encounter the disrespectful and arrogant attitude on display here when I was an investigator, and instead encountered respectful members who also were not so narrow-minded as to refuse to see any viewpoint other than their own self-centered one, and also had the intellectual capacity to understand that other viewpoint. I am grateful for church leaders who have utilized their considerable wisdom and respect for others to put correct policies in place as they have realized that - sadly - their are those members who either lack the capacity to understand, or simply choose to be disrespectful.
  11. As someone who was an Orthodox Jew prior to joining the church, I found that "the church" already has a great understanding of, and appreciation for, Judaism. Some of the members? Not so much. But that's their fault, not the church's.
  12. If you don't think it's okay to lie, then you simply need to stop, and not try to justify it with more dishonesty by saying it's just your "opinion" or a "feeling". By your way of looking at things, I could say something like "Tacenda is a thief", because it's just an opinion or feeling I have, no need at all for it to based in reality, right? You say you don't understand why our leaders encourage temple attendance. If you actually want answers to that, there are better ways to find the answer to that question than by simply making things up. But it seems that you would rather criticize than try to actually understand. Which is too bad, because you are seriously missing out. You seem heavily invested in a vision of temples sitting empty and unused. Whenever I've attended my local temple, the parking lots are full to overflowing, and you'll likely have a bit of a wait to perform ordinances.
  13. "Hit a nerve"? That doesn't make any sense. You made things up out of thin air, and it's "hitting a nerve" because I pointed out falsehoods? Exactly what nerve would that be? If you have a problem with temples, why not state your case using facts instead of lies? Do you have no case without them? Why would you apologize if you don't believe there is anything wrong with posting falsehoods to attack the church? I think you were given some good advice from previous posters.
  14. You make a claim that temple hours have been shortened because they "sit empty so much", then you accompany it with a lame disclaimer that this is your "deduction" after looking at temple schedules. Wow. I would call for a CFR, but you've already admitted that your statements are nothing more than falsities created for the express purpose of criticizing the church.
  15. As usual, only certain voices/viewpoints are heard on this board. Or allowed to be heard.
