  1. Romney was positioned well until his statement of being "brain washed." Anybody running against Nixon in the primaries would have his hands full.
  2. You are assuming the noun is exclusive rather than inclusive. To make it more clear I would have typed 's/he.' Yes, I agree women can be predators also.
  3. And I should note that Kelly, Lindsay, and Page Kimball Ogden are amazing women, and their comments should be believed.
  4. You demonstrated nothing of the sort. You asserted as if that was conclusive evidence. It is not.
  5. The covid continues to interfere with the mission field in the UK big time. Now that the kingdom is partially isolated from the world, shortages in basic needs multiply as cost go up and black-markets develop..
  6. Praying with one eye open : a gendered interpretation of Mormon Joseph Standing's murder in Appalachian Georgia, by Mary Ella Engel, is not well organized but remarkably interesting about President John Hamilton Morgan, converts in northwestern Georgia, the area where Morgan had marched with Sherman a decade earlier, and about gender and conversion and violence. Melvin C. Johnson's Life and Times of John Pierce Hawley: A Mormon Ulysses of the American West, along with his article on the various restoration sects and their involvement in temple ritual and esoterica in a John Whitmer Histor
  7. Such legislation would be a tremendous boon to policing and the criminal justice system as a whole in freeing up resources and restoring individuals' liberties.
  8. I am grateful for those who believe in the power of gratitude. I am grateful for my family. For those of you who appropriate the thread topic to express your hurt, I am grateful you are here to let others know that you are hurting, and I pray we can be of solace and help.
  9. I don't use hashtags but have benefitted from the posts above. I am so grateful for my spouse and our family.
  10. We have been watching the water and wind events in the South this year (we lived in East Texas and Louisiana for a number of years). My question is this: has anyone had any experience with the battery driven generators? Are they practicable?
  11. The whole FB exchange among the responders to Paul's post is very revealing of the various personalities. Best fortune to Paul, all those who responded there as well as those who do here.
  12. The Dixie Sun Bowl in St George Utah was used for both events. I played lineman in it and watch friends rodeo in its.
  13. The ad was expected by me. It had to happen sooner or later, because of the super cool LDS and not LDS I have known in Utah.
  14. Revelation would be needed on (1) civil unions and marriages of LGBTQ+ and (2) if sex within those constructs was sinful.
  15. Think what you want. It will not change the community in the slightest how it responds to this. It won't be by Anne's instruction.
  16. I am not inclined to accept opinions on how a few think the community should heal. Kimball's funeral service online and is available in FB. It was described by a friend as a "powerful service" and a "step in the healing process." Remarks can be found Mormon Hub and Mormon Historian in FB We are all blessed by the strength and power of the Mormon Studies community. Kimball's decades-long behavior will not destroy it, and as the community works together it will heal and get better.
  17. I am not anti-woman. That is merely your odd tirade about my correction of Anne McMullin's attacks on anyone, man or woman, who opposes her wanting to guide the process of grieving and reconstruction of the Mormon Studies community. I counsel you to become aware that no one needs to follow your or Anne's counsel. The community will follow its own guidance.
  18. Those words "emotional and hysterical" are yours, juliann. I know some of what Lindsay is hearing, and in that I have not seen anyone call either of her or Anne by those words. Anne can argue with John Dehlin all she wants. I have met Johns several times. I am reading that he made unwanted advances towards several women and that he never was any threat at all towards kids, etc. He should be called out if he crossed the line. As should any woman who does the same. I have not read of any woman crossing the line. What we don't need is toxic attacks on men or women as groups.
  19. The "anti-woman" out burst is in your head; I called out Anne McMullin, who does not represent all of womanhood. I disagree that we have to heal our community her way, which includes an attack on men. I called out Anne's unreasonable attack on all men. If a few woman join here, I can critique them with being anti-woman. You can believe that "everyone" agree with you, but that is not a compelling argument besides not being true. You should read this various FB groups such as Mormon Hub and Mormon Historians for example. You are way behind on this issue.
