"I'm a member as well, but not in the Elder's Quorum. I'm in the High Priests group, but serve in the primary until Sunday when I'll be serving in the young men.
I'm not sure how your question applies to the conversation at…"
"You're discounting the legitimate amount of female missionaries the LDS church sends out, not just to Temple Square or the visitors centers, but into some "interesting" neighborhoods as well.
Honestly, I think your statement is just…"
"Look, guys, RJ has a point. When most people think Mormon, they think of the full-time missionaries. Frankly, having been one myself, they aren't all that manly. We may have thought we were, but not in many of the ways that matter. There could…"
"In light of the recent posts, I thought this bit that I wrote recently on facebook might be worth adding to the discussion:
I wanted to share this in church today, but didn't get the chance.
I had a colleague who was upset that the LDS church…"
"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'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…"

"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…"
"For whatever reason, they're re-stocking the boonies before the cities. There might be 4 bottles at a liquor store near my work (based on last night's stock levels on their website) so I'ma take a walk down there at lunch to see…"
"Syrian refugees are starting to arrive in my city. I'm curious to see how things will shake down in the next 5-10 years.
