A Very Whacked Up Mormon Fast and Testimony Meeting (one naughty word)

by imalive

"My bishop got up and emphasized how God loves ALL his children, including the Jews, Christians, and yes, even the Muslims. BUT--we have more to offer because we are the true church on the face of the earth"

Funniest thing heard in Mormon testimony meeting

by almostgone

"I know that this is the church of jesus christ of latter day saints." And it was the a member of the bishopric... TOO funny.

I actually laughed out loud and my spouse was not happy about that.

Letter from former Mormon Church Educational System [CES] Colleague imploring me to come back.

by ken

"Brother Clark has left the church," I said this reluctantly and with much reservation. He was sure I was lying. "No!" he said matter-of-factly. Yes. "There is NO WAY.... Not Brother Clark!!!"

Mormons Believe the Berlin Wall Fell due to the LDS Church and Thomas Monson

by steve benson

Exhibit A in this regard: Monson's diabolical dance with East Germany's devil and Soviet-backed henchman, Erich Honecker.
Thomas Monson dancing with dictators.

Monson showed the world that he can play footsies with Commie thugs better than prize-winning partners on the BYU Ballroom Dance Team can glide their way into your hearts.

Mark E. Petersen's 1954 talk laying out the Church's position on race relations. (LONG)

by baura Jan 2012

The best job of laying out the Mormon position on race BEFORE the so-called revelation of 1978 was done by Apostle Mark. E. Petersen when instructing a group of Institute teachers and directors on August 27, 1954 at BYU.

This was OFFICIAL INSTRUCTION from an APOSTLE to RELIGION TEACHERS. This was not an idle statement or just an off-hand opinion.

Word of Wisdom

by Pista Jan2012

Something just got me thinking about the word of wisdom, and I looked it up to refresh my memory on a point. Something I had forgotten about until I saw it again was the verse that reads, ". . .not by commandment or constraint. . ."

I am French and used to think that I was somewhat special because I had become a member of the Mormon Church

by angelina5 Jan 2012

"true church" and most French individuals are atheist. What does it make me now??? A rare French idiot??? My folks know better, they called out the cultish tendencies of the Church. Ah ah!

Noted African-American theologian and author calls out Mitt Romney on the Book of Mormon's embedded doctrinal racism

by steve benson Jan 2011

Obery M. Hendricks, Jr., Ph.D "Yet I must admit that there is something about Mitt Romney's religion that I find deeply troubling, particularly in light of the possibility that he could become the next president of this nation. What concerns me is this: the Book of Mormon, the book that Mitt Romney and all Mormons embrace as divinely revealed scripture that is more sacred, more true, and more inerrant than any other holy book on earth, declares that black people are cursed. That's right. Cursed. [Native Americans are cursed in the Book of Mormon and Blacks are cursed in the Pearl of Great Price - another Mormon book of scripture]

Mormon Church: Committed to a baptism date, but now doubt

by allicat Jan 2012

Hello there, everyone. I am looking for answers to some doubts I've had, some fears I've realized and even some petty things that are on my mind about the LDS church and my baptism...

Did any of you leave due to simple burn out?

by shaken faith

That is what is pushing me out, burnout of all the hoops etc, guilt is part of it as well, but mostly just don't want to do it anymore. Any lurkers on here want to talk me out of leaving? send me an email, but I want the opinions of those gone...I keep going back and forth like an indecisive teenager, family ties, thinking it could still be true etc, but burnout is pushing me out...
