I know it's a waste of time arguing on youtube but I was addressed in a response about the church on a video.
The posters questions are: "Do you have any documentation proving that any of the General Authorities receive money from the Tithing Fund as part of their stipends?

I posted awhile ago about going to my step-daughter's temple wedding coming up this spring. It is very important to my tbm wife that I get a TR and go. I told her I could do everything I needed to get a TR [temple recommend] except lie about the church being true.

Like Mia said in RJ's thread, Mormonism wants to homogenize it's members. Obviously, that doesn't work. We are people with individual thoughts, ideas and feelings.
Another one right here in central Utah, this one involves about $200 million. Nice LDS Church going father and son inviting other church members to make good money, till it failed.

Tithing, garments or church attendance?
For those who stopped wearing garments before stopping church attendance, what was the time frame between the two? What caused you to make that final decision to stop attending?

Yesterday, most of us agreed that cheap anonymous mormon doo-dads and sweet treats dumped on doorsteps are annoying and won't inspire us to return to the mormon church.
What about more substanial identified gifts from our mormon loved ones?

In an article in the Huffington Post, entitled, "Are Mormons Any Weirder Than the Rest of Us?," Rabbi Shmuley Boteach makes his case against that proposition with this opening statement:
Did you ever deliberately deny or withhold the truth to investigators on your mission?
Re: Did you lie on your mission?
Can't remember... Hopefully not deliberately.

So there is a knock on my door Saturday morning. Luckily for me, there is a decorative window in my front door, so I can see I have me a couple of missionaries on my porch before I open it. Now, keep in mind I was kind of busy at the time, but I seriously just didn't want to get dragged into any kind of conversation with them.

This is what I have understood from what I have read here and elsewhere.
All the people of earth existed as "a separate intelligence" before they agreed to become spirit children of Heavenly Father.

So recently I was told by a member of my bishopric that due to my lack of attendance I should not bless my child. So naturally I did it anyway.
There wasn't a lot of fanfare or resistance from anyone. I just scheduled it, got dirty looks from people, and did it anyway.

The "what is wanted" thing? I don't get it. I'm sure the jokes will be more funny then.
When you go through the veil at the temple.
To meet Elohim, you tap on this metal bar three times, and then Elohim's arm comes out and Elohim asks, "What is wanted?"

I'll include some of this in my exit story, but was thinking about it this morning. I'm working on untangling what is truly part of my personality and what has been so ingrained and indocrinated in me that I think it's part of me when it really isn't.

From the Salt Lake Tribune
"The push for more missionaries may reflect an awareness of the church’s shrinking proselytizing force, which is down to about 52,000 from a high of 62,000 in the mid-1990s. The decline is due in part to the LDS Church “raising the bar” on missionary qualifications in 2002, LDS spokesman Scott Trotter said in February.
