  1. Acts 2:38 covers all of them apart from Faith so it's not like it's some special sequence that no one thought of before.
  2. So what exactly would a "new-style" queer character look like? They can't just be talking about princesses doing action-manly-hero thing, because we already have that happening in Disney movies (Moana, Brave, Mulan, etc). Would a Disney Princess slip the words "my girlfriend Tracey" into every second sentence? Would it be a princess rescuing a different princess because of a "true love" curse? Would it be a same-sex kiss at the end? They'd have to make it obvious. Because despite the fact that for most LGBT+ people you probably couldn't tell if they just walked past you (and you didn't know them personally), if Disney just made a character gay, or trans, or whatever, but didn't make it obvious, they'd just get criticised for hiding it, or not making it out there enough[1]. And if they did make it obvious (using LGBT stereotypes), they'd be criticised for stereotyping [2].

  3. And the fact that biblical scholars often say that true prophecy and its fulfilment don't exist, so anything that is specific and later fulfilled is a later addition.
  4. The Come Follow Me Insights youtube series with Taylor and Tyler (run by book of mormon central), might give you some discussion ideas. In terms of Ben's comments, I guess it comes down to whether it's run as a "what did you think about the last two weeks?" discussion, or as a guided discussion about key parts of the reading. That's really going to come down to how well the Sunday School President is keeping an eye on how the lessons are going (and providing training where necessary).
  5. You're amazed that they got a temple interior correct when there are church published photos of it on the internet? Here's one from 1993 Here's another one from 2019
  6. I think I recall hearing (I think it was from a local member talking about a visit to SLC), someone recounting a similar story about someone accepting their TR as a form of ID. That was quite a while ago though.
  7. Gotta know what rulings to overturn when we stack the bench with Mormons.
  8. Perfect time for us to knock on his door and convert his family
  9. As far as I knew it was only called that because that was the name of a documentary about it.
  10. https://aims.byu.edu "The mission of Brigham Young University — founded, supported, and guided by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — is to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life." "BYU seeks to develop students of faith,...." "A BYU education should be: Spiritually Strengthening....." "Strategic Objectives (2020–2025) Ensure alignment with the university mission. ... Advance faith-based teaching and learning. ..."
