  1. IMO, there are men inside and outside of the LDS Church who are condescending to women. I don't know how possible it would be to quantify the difference between the proportions to determine if there is a significant difference either way, but judging from the headlines, I'm going to speculate that the proportion of LDS men who are condescending to women is not more than the proportion of the same for the overall population.
  2. I would tell the people in the balcony to stay through the closing prayer.
  3. Using celebrities to represent Church historical figures has been used before. That's obviously Tony Bennett's image being used to depict Moroni. ๐Ÿ˜
  4. You seem to misunderstand the purpose of my post. I was responding to randy's comment. I didn't claim that the study was incorrect. I was simply pointing out that the Church was partially responsible for the focus on numbers. I'm confident that most LDS have heard the "fastest growing church" claim many times from multiple sources.
  5. Articles. Plural. There are many more. And countless non-published talks from various leaders (general and local) proclaiming the LDS Church as the fastest growing church in the world.
  6. I would say that the Church's own newsroom is partially responsible for that fork by publishing articles like this.
  7. โ€œThis work is moving forward at an accelerated pace. I can just hardly wait to bounce out of bed each morning and see what the day will bring.โ€ The membership increase has dropped each year for the past seven years. 2018 -> 195,566 2017 -> 235,752 2016 -> 248,218 2015 -> 261,862 2014 -> 290,309 2013 -> 299,555 2012 -> 341,127
  8. Religious beliefs are not the same as discriminatory actions.
  9. There are enough restaurants in the city who support African Americans that there is plenty of access for colored people to find a place to eat. Besides, why would they want to eat at a restaurant whose owners don't want them there? They might prepare the food poorly. I would think that the best option is to eat where colored people are welcome.
  10. I'm wondering what would happen if an LDS couple solicited the services of a baker to create a cake in the shape of an LDS temple, and the baker refused on the grounds that he doesn't believe in temple marriage.
  11. I'm wondering if Mahonri Moriancumer was offended when he was referred to as the brother of Jared.
  12. I still think it's interesting that and Yet the WoW has been transformed into a commandment - one that needs specific explanations and clarifications.
  13. Is the authority of the bishop necessary? After all, the cemetery is not owned by the Church.
