  1. Yes, cause women gossip. BY's harsh words were factual. BY also gave out more divorces than almost all states to the point Utah became the Las Vegas divorce destination of the nation. A little odd for a man who didn't think divorce was merited.
  2. It's too bad that piano teaching seems to be a lesson by lesson thing. It should be a monthly charge, with make up days possible but not nonpayment when a client is taking up a time slot that can't be given to someone else.
  3. Eh, regardless of how it turns out, it really isn't a good look for the minority party to be complaining about an initiative to increase voter involvement. Good grief.
  4. Also, this is a stretch but when Cig claims that they are blaming the members, I always go back to this very surprising Gen Conf statement, \ https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2012/04/the-doctrine-of-christ?lang=eng I think that is exactly what happened here.
  5. Which is the question of infallibility....something as old as the first prophet. In 20 years of online conversations (or brawls) it has always, always come down to the demand a prophet can never be believed again after a mistake. Always. You can pretty much just push everything else away. I don't underestimate the hurt and damage from this episode, but the priesthood ban was worse, that was a series of prophets. But today we seem to be handling it and I do think more and more people are coming to the conclusion, in their own time, that God didn't do it and the church won't fall apart if we take him out of it. Had me going there for a minute....
  6. It was good until he started into his own exegesis, which is the very tired infallibility complaint. Especially when he goes to Bill Reel as the real prophet. The podcast is an hour longer than it needs to be. He repeats himself endlessly. Here is his black and white thinking problem....the reason it was changed, I think, is because it was not a good policy. He even says that people were leaving, so...newsflash, a LOT of us would agree with his original analysis, but more stayed than left. Then it only comes down to all the layers of infallibility. It was handled very badly. Yup. Very. I chalk it up to a steep learning curve that no prophet has ever had to face. But they changed it. He may not have realized the consequences originally, but it would be stupid to argue they don't get it now, in addition to the consequences of changing it. But they changed it. Didn't finish it, too much question begging.
  7. Seriously? You really aren't reading what she said. But feel free to mischaracterize her if it helps your data free narrative.
  8. Oh for heaven's sakes. You read stories. Meanwhile, you ignore piles of statistics. There is a difference between glamorizing suicide and talking about it. Maybe you can read some stories about that on your non factual sites. Suicide is a serious problem amongst our youth. It deserves more scrutiny than a few stories.
  9. Back to the important stuff, my yearly review of the bunches of green stuff threatening the speakers. It has usually been a tasty looking tossed salad. This year they went the extra step and created a salad bar with some containers for the heads of lettuce, and two lucious looking red tomatoes flanking each speaker! I'm sure I saw an artichoke, too.
  10. Come on, just because you don't know any doesn't mean it wasn't happening. I know people who left. When you have beloved gay family members it isn't a non-issue.
  11. I've posted this before, but I think it describes what has happened, https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2012/04/the-doctrine-of-christ?lang=eng The Doctrine of Christ By Elder D. Todd Christofferson We have a responsibility to determine what is good if we are members. But along with that is being able to express the testimony of the HG in a responsible manner. The HG doesn't speak in anger, skepticism, hatred, and relentless negativity. If anything, the internet is making it possible for the body of members to bear testimony in numbers and be heard. That wasn't available during the priesthood ban, if only it could have been corrected in 3 years.
  12. What ugly unloving thing to say. I know someone whose grandchildren were affected by this. The announcement itself says we are to mourn with those who mourn.
