  1. Pretend you are Gramps from Ask Gramps and you got this question. How would you answer it? Please provide any scripture reference or talk or quote to substantiate your answer. LDS family members keep saying: "The church teaches that socialism is evil"; but a quick search on lds.org only has talks from the 1980's and earlier. If socialism is as "evil" as my family members think it is, then why aren't the current apostles and prophets currently warning us against it?

    Singing in Church

    Weird. I had not heard there was a no singing rule.
  3. It seems to the moderating team that we are getting more and more posts being reported by "guests." Yet they appear to be extremely familiar with the forum members etc. Many times we want to communicate with the person who has reported a post if we need clarification or perhaps clear up a misunderstanding. We can't do that with an anonymous person. Plus it makes it appear as if perhaps a disgruntled former member just has it out for someone. Going forward: Except with the case of pornography, vulgar language and spamming the site, we will not take action on a reported post that is done by a guest. It must be done by an actual named forum member.

    Are Latter-day Saints unified?

    Love that movie. It showed someone who really cared about people.

    How would you answer this?

    Anyone that follows current events would see that socialism is evil. Look at some of the countries around the world that have adopted it. Venezuela comes to mind. But Venezuela hasn't failed just because of socialism. They at one time had a thriving economy based on oil. But they put it all in one basket and focused more on oil and less on agriculture and other commodities that the country would need to survive. When oil there fell, so did the country and their economy.

    It's okay because sometimes even some comments can be made into an article.

    I apologize

    You had better apologize.

    This is what you should have posted yesterday:
  9. If you inherited 5 million dollars, what would you do with it? For me it would be starting a non profit shelter and sanctuary for senior dogs. A place where senior dogs would have a happy place and safe place to finish out their lives. I would purchase about 5 acres. I already have a house pictured in my head that would be just for the dogs with easy access to outdoors. I would be able to hire some staff but also be able to rely on volunteers. I would also have a garden to be able to grow some of the vegetables that dogs need to keep healthy. Of course I might do a little bit of traveling. But I seriously would really love to do a senior dog sanctuary.

    The Shack

    I read The Shack and I loved it and I loved the movie.

    Election and Leadership

    The thing is...it doesn't necessarily mean that missionaries will go to every nation, tongue and people. We've been told that the gospel would be preached from the rooftops. Well it already is. With satellite dishes that can reach people all over the world. General conference is broadcast to the world. So I don't think it's far fetched that it's closer than most would think. So many missionaries right now are teaching from social media and the internet right now with COVID-19 going on. The big push with missionaries right now is to use social media to their advantage. I have seen more videos produced by missionaries out in the field teaching gospel principles than ever before.

    It's my opinion we are much much closer than that.

    Kamala Harris? Really?

    I love Candace Owens.

    Masks

    Which I'm sure your kids love.

    Masks

    Curious as to what the preference is. It's a business question for me. This is not open for debate of masks vs no masks. Those comments will be deleted.

    Kamala Harris? Really?

    When it got announced I posted on facebook that I was taking bets. Will she claim to be Indian American as she did for her senate seat or will she now use the black race card?

    Masks

    I'm seriously with you. My thought is if we have to wear them we might as well have some fun. I have some from tacos, to Eggos, to mardi gras masks on fabric to cactus and llamas. Got my holiday fabrics out of my storage unit to start on those eventually.

    Masks

    I started an etsy shop and I've been busy sewing masks this weekend. I was curious as to preference of most because I can make one without the pocket in about 15 minutes but the pocket one takes me about 40.

    A message to Shania Twain...

    Don't you mess with my girl.

    Sabbath Worship from Home

    To add to what NT posted above, let's please keep from publicly calling people sock puppets and trolls etc. I worry that sometime we will get someone new who sincerely has a question and might get accused of being a sock puppet and never comes back. Let us try to be a little more Christ like.

    Texas: Contagion and Masks

    You can be a carrier and never have actually shown signs or come down with it.

    Texas: Contagion and Masks

    According to the CDC they still aren't sure. They are doing testing on monkeys but no conclusive findings yet. So to be safe, I'd still wear a mask.
