  1. Huh? I was agreeing with you. Is it STILL too early to joke about the printing press? I thought enough time has passed that maybe I get a slight chuckle out of both apologists and critics by poking fun at it. I realize you won't see this, but I apologize if I offended you.
  2. Absolutely! Members of the church should condemn all forms of violence and destruction of non-printing-press private property.
  3. It would be nice to have an option to anonymously downvote ridiculous posts that you don't want to bother engaging the poster on, but still want to register your opinion. Seeing who upvotes your comments seems to just help everyone choose sides so I'm not sure it helps the discussion. But I'm mostly a lurker who is entertained by the drama between believers and former believers so I'm not in favor anything that would reduce that.
  4. I was just confirming what you stated about the fatalities not being very exciting. Of course the riot was violent.
  5. Especially since the fatalities were caused by 1) stroke, 2) heart attack, 3) amphetamine overdose 4) natural causes but possibly aggravated by riot, 5) unarmed woman shot by unidentified Capitol PO Except for Babbitt, the fatalities weren't very dramatic or exciting. It was a stupid riot by a bunch of dumb mostly white people. We are pretty tolerant of protests here in the DC area as long as they don't interfere with traffic, but this didn't earn much sympathy. On a positive note, many finally have begun condemning violent and destructive protests.
  6. Huh? I guess this was supposed to be a sick burn? I just provided a different point of view that you completely dismissed. But I've always enjoyed the hyperbole in your posts. I was just pointing out that we all can be offended if we choose. Members of the church are at a disadvantage since they are expected to be nice, even though this site allows the opportunity to be anonymous so it can get dicey at times. I'm still entertained by all the exmos that rush into these threads to lecture members of the church, even though I have sympathy for any pain you have experienced.
  7. Can we please stop using the highly offensive expression "gay marriage" on this LDS themed board? It's offensive to all believing members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Please stop comparing it to marriage which is between a man and woman. Sometimes between a man and several woman. But never between two dudes. President Gordon B. Hinckley “We want to help these people, to strengthen them, to assist them with their problems and to help them with their difficulties. But we cannot stand idle if they indulge in immoral activity, if they try to uphold and defend a
  8. We need to make big families cool again.
  9. I realize it's not practical to send back Saints to their home countries, but it's probably even more difficult with Norway. This year Bing.com posted a photo of Ålesund for Norway's May 17th national holiday. I stayed in this hellhole for two weeks - who would ever want to live here?
  10. I've heard Norwegians claim there would be close to 50,000 members in Norway today if so many didn't come to the U.S. after WWII. Maybe having a temple in Oslo will help bring some members back home.
  11. The solution is simple - add a third session on Sunday to allow more sisters to speak. Having 12 hours of conference seems a much consistent biblical number than the current 10.
  12. Our stake cancelled girls camp too. It really stinks because I had already made the camp t-shirts with this years' theme.
  13. What's the best way to explain elective abortion to a seven year old girl? It doesn't matter how I explain it, she keeps recoiling in horror at the thought.
  14. I thought there were already LGBTQ characters on Studio C? In the first cast, the guy that was actually gay (Stacey?) was less effeminate than most of the other dudes. I admit my gaydar broke when the 46 different terms for sexuality came out so I can't tell what anyone is anymore. It's a good thing that everyone now posts their sexual orientation on the internet so we all can know without trying to guess.
