    AP Styleguide refusing to dump "Mormon"?

    His insinuation seems clear enough. And please don’t refer to apostate groups that broke away from the restored Church of Jesus Christ as “branches” thereof. It is misleading at best. Edited to add: “TCOFJCOLDS” seems hardly better than “LDS Church.” Are you determined to ignore the spirit, if not the letter, of President Nelson’s instruction?

    So apparently the only churches that go by that name, other than The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are schismatic break-offs thereof. And we’re expected to believe (according to Yirgacheffe) that said break-offs are entitiled to exclusive ownership of the name?

    Temple Recommend Questions

    You seem to have taken the lesson of the great and spacious building and turned it on it’s head. That is, you accuse the people of God for identifying and being aware of the pride of the world.

    War poured out starting with Civil War

    Someone with a Master’s degree ought to understand the proper meaning of “begging the question.”

    You’re still not getting it. Go back to the link I provided and read through it until you understand. It’s a name for a logical fallacy. It has nothing to do with asking questions.

    I too have become fond of MiserereNobis to the extent one can with an anonymous person on an Internet forum.

    The vision you refer to was a vision of the future. This must be so when you consider that Joseph’s own father was among those he saw, and his father had not yet died.

    It means that you've misused the phrase "begs the question." Go here for an explanation: http://begthequestion.info/ Here's a quote from the link: If you mean to say, "this raises the question" or "this brings up the question" or "this calls out for the question," you should not use the phrase "begs the question," for that does not mean what you intend it to mean.

    Is it time to end Testimony meetings?

    Would that we had that kind of fortitude in our American congregations! What would have happened in your ward, do you think, had the intruder been a woman? In the two instances that come readily to my mind, the disrupters were female.

    I guess there’s a lot I take for granted.

    In our ward (and every modern Church meetinghouse I’ve seen) there is a pedestal located next to the seat where a member of the bishopric sits with a switch that can be used to cut power to the microphone. Is this not the case where you live? Maybe I’m not understanding your question.

    “Beg the question” does not mean “raise the question.”

    I don’t know of any successful attempts to copyright or trademark the name “Jesus Christ.” As I’ve said before, it ordinarily will be clear from context what church is being referred to when “Church of Jesus Christ” is used as a shortened form for “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    I was thinking in terms of cutting the intruder’s access to public address and thus preserving order and avoiding the need to dismiss the meeting, which I don’t find to be an acceptable solution. If the spectacle consists of him/her trying not to be drowned out by the singing, it might not make as much of a YouTube show. Of course there are other ways to disrupt a meeting, but in such instances the problem transcends merely keeping control of the pulpit.

    If I ran a ward, my prearranged signal for the contingency hymn would be to suddenly cut the mic. That ought to be the first thing to happen anyway. Avoid giving these yahoos even a split second of additional pulpit time. —- Since being paroled in 2004, Cody Judy has been busy: congressional candidate, three-time candidate for U. S. President, and he’s currently running a write-in campaign for U. S. senator from Utah. If you have between $30,000 and $70,000 plus expenses to pay him, he’ll speak at your event.
