"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…"

Evening! So I got a little dilemma. About a month ago, a friend of mine from my hometown came up to Chicago to move. Like I did a couple of years ago, he came up here to find more opportunity, and so I let him stay on my couch.
