"I agree with the sentiment you're talking about here. Those of us who can gather still should, in my opinion. The purpose doesn't seem to be to allow us to "relax" in the gospel even more, but to give more people the opportunity…"
"I wear slip on without steel toes. I read that the steel toes can actually make it hard to fit under the shifter. They're not specifically motorcycle boots, but have been good enough for the minor spills I've taken while I learned to ride.…"
"I'm in the bishopric of my ward. So far, we haven't received these kinds of mandates in our area (Las Vegas). On the other hand, I have been involved in asking people to do things beyond what they believe they can do. I have gone to my…"
"Brigham City was done by Richard Dutcher who was LDS at the time.
Personal favorite is actually Kirby Heyborne's stuff. I like The Best Two Years and Saints and Soldiers although some may argue that's not technically a Mormon…"
"I think it's worth asking, if you feel frustrated all the time, why? Do you think it's because your expectations have been raised to unrealistic levels or because your wife isn't all that interested.
Granted, this can slip into the…"
"Of Souls, Symbols, and Sacraments
Is that the talk, you mentioned?
Honestly, I don't think it's inappropriate for you to weigh in here. It's a good thing to go into marriage with the blinders off. You're less likely to be…"
"I just read a story about a woman in her 20s who found porn on her boyfriend's computer. The whole fornication thing aside, she said that despite the fact that they had sex 5-7 times a week he claimed it just wasn't enough and he…"
"Honestly, it seems this is as good a forum as any for this kind of discussion. And it's probably one worth having.
It wouldn't surprise me if there are a lot of LDS men who don't feel quite as satisfied in the bedroom as they might…"
"I'm not quite in the 40's bracket that you were looking for, but I would argue that if you can afford it (the key idea that could have kept us out of our current fiscal crisis) and it's something that won't get out of your head…"
"That is why it's such a danger now, but I think the problem stems from the way it enforces a certain way of looking at women. Porn supports the concept of women as objects designed to satisfy our whims and urges, and pretty much nothing more.…"
"I think what I'm getting at is that if the founder of a philosophy is so wrong, then why would you want to follow that philosophy.
Another thing that I wonder about is where you're getting some of your information. I've heard a…"
I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
"I can't remember if I have mentioned this before, but there is a book that lays the groundwork for such a question and it was by an author called Barry Fells. He posited that there were many groups here in what we call the United States…"
"There has been no era that the following era did not think was oppressive. 100 years from now, they'll think we are all backwards asshats, too. How exactly, is hard to discern. But asshats in their eyes, we will be.
I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
