  1. VS - No officer , I'm not protesting,( wink wink nudge nudge ) I'm just standing here silently thinking about praying. Officer - No ma'm , we are not arresting you for praying ( wink wink nudge nudge ) You are being arrested for silent protesting.
  2. It seems that the State will do all it can to protect the public from possible danger of physical and/ or emotional damage because it might interfere with a human abattoir .
  3. While we are getting picky, the original of Mary and child, Jesus looks like a two year old toddler and a bit deformed at that . I agree that the Church should not be changing original art unless they have full ownership rights.
  4. Condoms are about 80 - 85 % effective. If the man really does not want any more children, then he should get snipped. Then again ,they may be using condoms in order to set the timing between pregnancies. Good luck with that.
  5. The Handbook is good and covers the majority of situations. However , it CAN be adjusted or even over-ruled by a person with the authority and keys. It probably won't be, but it can be .
  6. From what I have seen, you are at least as much a " member " as many " members " I know. As for the questions, I would answer YES to all except those that would require a Bishops, SPs or GAs authority first ,which seems to have been done.
  7. All covenants are temporary, unless and until sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise.
  8. Unless you have personal direct knowledge , no.
  9. This is a dumb poll. Poorly constructed . I did notice how many sects besides LDS are not considered ' Christian ' .
  10. Whatever her intent, I think we can agree ( wishful thinking ) , that she accomplished the goal of raising Cain about the law and abortion. She could have just stood there for a month and little would have happened. LEOs opened that can of worms. IIRC , most protests I have seen are illegal somehow, either blocking a public road or protesting without a permit. This particular " protest " was the most peaceful one since George Floyd . 👿
  11. Did I miss the part where the police asked her several times, politely , to move along ,like has been done many times to ordinance breakers ?
  12. Without a spirit, the body is just a meat suit. I think that until the fetus can be animated by its own spirit, it likely is animated by the mother's spirit. The scriptures are not consistent about killing humans are they ?
  13. If Lehi's family just melted into the existing peoples, what was it about them that ,over centuries , kept them in the political and military positions of power ?
  14. In Spanish the biblical language uses the " tu " form, hence it is also used in prayer. In case you want a primer : All About You: 5 Ways to Say “You” in Spanish and How to Use Each Correctly | FluentU Spanish I did notice ' vosotros ' used also.
  15. Any of you from the South ever heard a "ya'all " slipped in to a prayer ? 😁
  16. Take a guess at how many countries in the church can fully cover their own fast offering expenses .
  17. For those of you that can relate, here I will be experiencing - 30 to -40 for most of next week !!! It is supposed to warm up by Christmas though. Yippy .
  18. Utah being one of the first states to give women the vote, GAs stop growing beards. 😁
  19. Out of curiousity, Do all the wards now have people go up to the pulpit to bare their testimonies ? Years ago ,we had the deacons carry microphones around to those wishing to bare testimony who stood where they were.
