Re: Boy Scouts and LDS to split?

I know an Eagle Scout who said he is sending his award back to the BSA and asking them to remove him from their records.

Re: Saw A Vision, Earthquake in Utah

instead of trying to fulfill this dream as prophecy, simply buy a different laptop and thereby prevent this awful event. The future is in your hands! ;) (Kidding)

Re: DS- Friends and Spokesmen 6/17/15

at a glance, I agreed with this post. Pretty much in line with general gospel teachings (and LDS church teachings, too).

Re: China is the future.

Local Chinese don't have the same feeling about crime that most foreigners have. Foreigners feel (and generally are) very safe in China. Punishments are very severe for people and attacking a foreigner would raise the profile and punishment of a crime, so criminals pick easier targets. A lot of the ...

Re: church announces news conference this morning 10am

Well, maybe we should all change our idea. Maybe the Lord wants non-discrimination laws for LGBTs more than individual liberty for restaurant, hotel, and apartment owners.

Re: church announces news conference this morning 10am

Nondiscrimination legislation seeks to protect LGBT people against discrimination in employment, housing and p...

Re: How to Survive in a World without Toilet Paper

In an arid survival situation water might be scarce, so the bidet idea might not work everywhere. BUT, I love the little "hand bidet" "botttom squirters" that they use in SE Asia. A little hand nozzle spray and you have a squeaky clean fresh feeling, then a quick toilet paper pat...

Dale Christensen 2016, LDS Candidate for President

So, my uncle, Dale Christensen, has decided to run for president. He believes in standing up and doing something about liberty. The ground is dry, so we hope little brush fires of liberty will start all over the nation and sweep across this land of promise, turning hearts and minds back to God and t...

Re: My Pre-Mortal Existence vs. Now

From my own experience, I know we knew Father and Jesus well. I felt like people I know now were congregated with me there, but I don't recall/remember the specific people--just the feeling.

During a relative's near-death experience, she was introduced to her yet future grandchildren by name.

This may be satire: ;) Many feminists go on about equality with men, especially when it comes to illustrious jobs, titles, positions, etc. I don't think I've ever seen a feminist complaining about the lack of women in manual labor and construction trades. They don't want to build the Starbucks build...

Don't worry, I'm not offended. I understand your concerns. You did say the "second post" in the thread (mine) was the one that "hijacked" the thread. That's why I wanted to apologize, explain myself, and ask your forgiveness.
