"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…"

"I was a subsistence hunter for most of my adult life. I highly recommend putting yourself at the top of the food chain. Even if you're a vegetarian. You should know the work that goes into keeping you alive for a year."
"Maybe it's just me ... but describing carnivorism as "eating flesh cut from corpses of conquered lower life-forms" still wouldn't strike me as at all horrific. Just the reality of life. Some life -- maybe even most --…"
"I generally divide political factions into four groups, simply because most people fall into one of these four groups whether they think they do or not.
