Just without rebaptism. Hamula could be a harbinger of a culling of the lesser leaders. Monson might be completely out to lunch and the Nelson-Oaks museum of Holland's farts could be starting a systematic quashing and reassignment and readjustment for the faithful.

I'll call it the packering off the intellectuals and feminine leaders.

(Kudos to the poster--I've forgotten whom--who came up with "oxymormon.")

The term "oxymormon" may be new to this site, but it's been around for awhile. My niece's cousin used the alias "Olive Oxymormon" in 2007. Author Sarah Hepola either mis-transcribed or intentionally changed the moniker to "Olive Oxymoron" to make it a bit more Mormon-friendly when she posted interviews with southern Idaho teens Olive Oxymormon and her friend Lucy Latter-Day Sinner. Lucy's handle for the published interviews was changed to "Lucy Latter-Day Saint."

I believe the term had been used elsewhere on the Internet before my niece's cousin used it. I may have read it at the Salamander Society site, though I'm not certain. I don't think anyone necessarily copied anyone else. It was a term that was begging to be coined, and it emerged spontaneously in more than one place.

I'm sure you're right.
Guess I'm not as clever as I thought I was!

Thanks for the tasty slice of humble pie.

I disagree. You WERE clever. You thought of it. Anyone who thought of it was clever.

All they have left is oxymormonic truth now that the truth has set many people free.

I think most TBMs would be happier if they could jettison those who don't meet their standards of righteousness and shrink The Church® down to an exclusive club of people identical to themselves.

I think for many you are right but there are TBMs for whom lording their further light and knowledge over others is a God-given pleasure.

But they'd be able to brag even more that they're part of the small, exclusive, minority of those who are righteous enough, valiant enough, yadda yadda yadda. That's what the celestial kingdom is all about anyway.

True. There might be TBMs actually happy at the exodus.

It was during that Mormon reformation that the Mountain Meadow Massacre happened.

The use of the word "packering" in this thread is most fitting, but I would have suspected the new word to be used in close proximity to the mention of "little factories." For what it's worth...

I've been trying to think of a sentence using both? Can you?

The new deacons brought their "little factories" to priesthood meeting where they received "packereing" for how to operate them.

That sentence sounds nastier than a bit of homemade marshmallow chocolate packered into a testimony to make its spirit sweeter.

The cost of a modern day reformation would be high. "The more you tighten your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers".
