by sherlock Mar 2012

The church was clearly very unhappy with the BBC documentary 'The Mormon Candidate', hand delivering a letter of complaint to the BBC, which mentioned that Elder Holland had been ambushed and then putting up the defensive on Facebook.

my Mormon family has selective memory of the temple

by Romy Mar 2012

I recently revealed my disbelief to my mom, dad and another family member and told them my first issue came up from looking up mason secrets after hearing someone at work talking about masons. I had NO CLUE what I was in for because I have never been through the endowment, looked up anything about the ceremony, watched Big Love, heard anything from friends when I got a lot of google links back about the similarities of masonry to the mormon temple ceremony I was shocked.

The Supposedly Barren Salt Lake Valley--Another Mormon Lie Caught and Treed . . .

by steve benson Mar 2012

--A Barren Valley or a Legend Barren of Truth?

Persistently-propagandized Mormons have long claimed that when Brigham Young arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, he and his cohorts found the place to be devoid of trees--except, supposedly, for a single cedar, tenaciously clinging to life in a desolate wasteland that the Mormons boast to have (according to scriptural prophesy, of course) resurrected to resplendent glory.

How much does the average Mormon really know...

by brook

I've been reading this site and others like it for about 10 years. With the knowledge/truth I have learned about the Mormon church, I can't think of what it's like to not know. What do you all think the average TBM knows about their church. For example, do they even know about the BoA scandal? Or how much do they really know about polygamy, other than, it was practiced. I thought I'd ask here because a lot of you may be fresh out of the mold. How in the dark were you?

A Very Sad Sacrament Meeting Story

Mitt Romney's Mormon Secrets

By Richard Packham February 2012 and the Book of Abraham

by alex71ut Mar 2012

At its written "Joseph Smith never claimed that the papyri were autographic (written by Abraham himself), nor that they dated from the time of Abraham." At

History, not Mystery: Joseph Smith was a Pedophile (as confirmed by even Mormon sources) . . .

steve benson Mar 2012

Like Warren Jeffs, Joseph Smith engaged in sex with underage girls (despite what robo-Mos dependent on FAIR propaganda peddling may wish to believe--and as proven by Mormon history itself).

Did you go through Washing and Annointing before 1990?


I'm curious if anyone here experience the washing and annointing before 1990, did you really have to do that fully naked? What was your experience? What were your thoughts? Were you shocked? prepared?

The Mormon Church's Materialistic Moneyed Myth: The Lie of an "Unpaid Clergy" . . .

steve benson

[Figures from] Canada, where finances for non-profits have to be reported: “... They also had 184 full-time workers who split a total of $15,237,479, of those full-time workers, two of them made between $80,000-$119,999; six of them made between $120,000-$159,999; and two others made between $160,000-$199,999. The two who made between $160k to $199k were probably the regional authority Seventies in the area...

Why do non-Mormoms post here?

by peaceout2012

I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just curious as to why people who have never been member of the lds church feel the need to post on a recovery board. I guess I can understand a nevermo wife or husband. Please explain how you can relate to those of us trying to recover, vent, laugh, and move on. I know this sounds rude, but I really don't get it.

Oaks Admits Apostolic Arrogance.

by baura Mar 2012

The Mormon-sponsored Youtube video of Oaks admitting the Church is losing the 20-30 year old men he makes an interesting statement. He talks about AFTER he was called to be an apostle he was assigned to the missionary committee and told to assign missionaries. He claims he asked Bruce R. McConkie, "how do you know where to assign them?" The answer is telling: It starts at about 3:00 in the video:

what was your first reaction when you learned the truth about Mormonism?

by nitsua6554 Mar 2012

When I first started hearing the truth I had such bad anxiety I couldn't sleep. All I could think about was "oh s***."

T_Shirt contest for the mall of the Lard!

Jesus wants me for a shopper to shop for him each day.

I figure I've given $100,000 in tithing. Am I alone? What have others given?

by doubleb Mar 2012

Just curious how much has been given cumulatively by exmo's. I figure that I gave about $100,000 before pulling the plug. You? Anyone know precisely what they gave?

Yep, Toilets need cleaning at the ward level. (Mild Rant-no language)

by Lost Mar 2012

At 5:45AM this morning, the good ole missionaries dropped by to wake up our entire household.

Reason for their visit? Our Bishop Jackwagon wants Brother Lost to honor his Priesthood covenants (I thought I had lost those cause I had resigned?) and CLEAN THE CHAPEL before the meetings start this morning at 9AM. Apparently, the bathrooms need special attention, since the toilets are backed up.

The church now denying they ever taught the whole man becoming a god thing?

by normally a lurker Mar 2012

[Mormon Scripture] D&C 132:20 Then shall they be gods, because they have no end; therefore shall they be from everlasting to everlasting, because they continue; then shall they be above all, because all things are subject unto them. Then shall they be gods, because they have all power, and the angels are subject unto them.

Botts BYU Briefing about Blacks Brews Big Brouhaha Mar 2012

by baura Mar. 2012

Randy Bott, a BYU [Mormon University} professor of religion, told the Washington Post that the LDS [Mormon] Church’s historic prohibition on priesthood ordination for men of African descent was a “blessing” to blacks because they were not 'ready' for priesthood authority. “'God has always been discriminatory' when it comes to whom he grants the authority of the priesthood, says Bott... until 1978, the Lord determined that blacks were not yet ready for the priesthood"

This just in: new tithing slips Feb 2012

By Dallin A. Chokes

Printed on the slip: "Though reasonable efforts will be made globally to use donations as designated, all donations become the Church's property and will be used at the Church's sole discretion to further the Church's overall mission." So, the days when you thought you could give to a good cause (i.e., NOT tithing) and hope it would end up somewhere good (Perpetual Education? Fast Offerings?) are now over. Here's my money...let's hope you do something good with it.
