  1. Because, in his perspective, and mine, our beliefs are more true/valid than theirs. You've heard from us how long? and could not figure out what we would say to that question?
  2. Ah, you mean that since you see the names of General Authorities on books for sale and people buy them, apparently people are buying those books because it appears that Generally Authorities wrote them. I've wondered about that before. I wonder if book publishers approach them and ask them if they can print what they have said in the past, as a way to make something to sell. No good reason any GA should say no to that.
  3. Irony is actually not dead although some people may think it may be. Every person on this planet is simply sharing what they think and how they feel. Even the people who think what they say should be taken seriously. It's things like this that help to make being alive a good thing.
  4. Nah. If you feel comfortable saying things like that to me then I think I am doing okay to say what I say. Just sharing what I think and how I think as honestly as I know how.
  5. Oh really. I thought maybe but then I thought, nah, he's just telling me what he thinks. People do that, you know. They just say what they think and how they feel. Doesn't mean they're trying to get us to think what they think, I don't think. Just understand them.
  6. Oh I have tons already. How much do we need?
  7. Okay, I tried the not tell you approach but now I feel like I want to tell you. If I was a man, which I am, but I thought I was a woman, which I am not, and I heard people referring to this conundrum as "silliness, stupid, and pathetic" I would give it some serious consideration and then I would decide how I thought I should feel. ... and now after giving it some serious consideration I think I might feel silly.
  8. A virtual slip. Interesting. It's been a while since I have donated online because my wife usually takes care of that for us. Even though I am the professional accountant in our family.
  9. Only if he was persuasive. I see him as just another person sharing his own perspective, right or wrong. And I recognize the fact that we are all entitled to our own opinions and perspectives.
  10. Sometimes maybe it is better not to tell others how I really feel, or how you really feel, or what you think, or how you see things. Keeping one's own thoughts to one's self, and God, and maybe sometimes a spouse. Would that make you feel better? Would you rather just not know how I feel or what I think when I think of a man who wants to be called a woman, or a woman wants to be called a man? I am not going to change how I feel or what I think just because someone else doesn't like what I feel or think. My mind would be flip-flopping all over the place if I tried to do that, because we are not all in agreement and we still wouldn't be even if all of us kept changing our minds depending on who we are talking to at a particular moment. So I just stick with what I know and what I think and how I feel, depending on God for my guidance while sometimes, a lot of the time actually, talking things out with my spouse.
  11. Yes, and the books Deseret Books or any other publisher sells brings in money for the publisher and publishing company as well as money for the person(s) providing the source material. So it's basically providing an income to others, like any employer does when paying people to do a job. One of the best things about being an employer, in my perspective. Doing something to provide an income for others.
  12. I am not hostile but I do not like all of this type of silliness in this world. Silliness that isn't funny, anymore, even though at one time I thought it was or could be. Now I see it as the stupid and pathetic silliness that it is. And this is just me being honest.
  13. I already told you why I wouldn't call a man a woman. Because a man is not a woman. And transgender is a made-up word for a man who thinks he is a woman or a woman who thinks she is a man. By calling a man a man and a woman a woman I keep my own integrity in tact rather than bending to the will of other people who want me to go against what I know is right by calling things that are what they are not..
