The church has always paid lip service to this. But your mileage in a regular ward may vary.

You're not made to feel exactly comfortable if you're any of those things.

^^^^^^^Bravo, Don!!!

For the OP. Sorry, I don’t buy that horseshit. I’ve had too many friends who’ve been disciplined for one or several of the items listed.

I tried to tell this to Daniel Peterson online (bad idea, I know). He got all pissed off and suddenly there was another poster who chastised me. I wonder if that was him.

Dan posts with a gang of followers who do the fighting for him. He's a weird guy IMO. Very messed up.

He sets off all my creeper alerts. He's got some dark ugly secrets underneath all that ugly exterior.

I [would] could never be a "good mormon" (which barely amounts to a bad man). I settled, since deciding as a teenager, to be a good man, that a mormon I must not be.

A few decades of 'inactivity' [which amounted to much activity], a good friend wiser than I on the subject, and RFM (and a few months of immersion), and knowing more about Mormonism than 10,000 of the highest mormons (and I would know a "good mormon" if I saw one and, low and behold, there are none) and I got my young wish, to NOT BE lds.

Now I'm a 'good mormon without the troubles and heartaches of actually being punished by having to be one.

"We need you"
Translation: "We need you...'re money!"
