    Advice on nonconformity

    I was glancing a closed thread that asked which of two prom dresses they should get. To me, both dresses looked great. The other respondents thought that both were too immodest for Mormons. So, am I missing the boat? Is it because I was not BIC? Sometimes I suspect that I am in Utah but not of Utah, if you know what I mean. Advice? http://www.lds.net/forums/general-discussion/23560-prom-dress-should-i-wear.html
  2. This has been reported several times, but I guess it is finally a go since they have a set opening and venue... --------------------------------------------- Book of Mormon musical to open on Broadway Written by: Dan Metcalf Jr. Contributor: Chris Vanocur Last Update: 1:47 pm The Book of Mormon SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A satirical musical about the Book of Mormon and LDS missionaries has been scheduled to open on Broadway in March of 2011. 'The Book of Mormon' is a stage musical written and produced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creative force behind Comedy Central's animated series South Park. According to an article in Broadway.com, The Book of Mormon will open at the Eugene O'Neill Theater with previews set to begin on February 24, 2011, with opening night on March 24. Parker and Stone have often poked fun at the culture and doctrine of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in several episodes of South Park and other projects. According to Broadway.com, the play will follow two missionaries as they face several hazards while spreading the Mormon message in Africa. ---------------------------------- Anyone here been on an African Mission for the Church?
  3. Hey, don't blame me for the title. It is from the following article on Beliefnet. I am more than happy sitting right next to my brethren from the 10th Century on Sundays. Your thoughts?
  4. Anybody catch the premier of this series on the Kody Brown family last night? If so, what are your impressions?

    What about those that have tried?

    Far from being off topic, the more we understand about you, the more precise we readers can be with words of advice. Is there a ward or branch you belong to in town? Have you been able to share these feeling with them and has it helped?

    What about those that have tried?

    Daenvgiell, I remember discussing some time ago that you sounded a bit depressed. If that is still happening, I am wondering if it might be contributing to not feeling the Spirit to your satisfaction. It is actually hard to feel all alone, even when you are on the other side of Australia from home, when there are so many other people around you. Being as pretty and talented as you are, I imagine there are many there at college who would readily befriend you. Feeling alienated is another matter, and from personal experience, I think this can be directly tied either to a decidedly unfriendly environment or to depression. Tell us more.

    General Conference

    The final session seemed centered around addiction, expecially to pornography. This would make sense, since on Denver Snuffer's blog there was mention that 60% of all active male members have a problem with viewing pornography.

    Mountain West Conference

    CBSSports.com wire reports Oct. 2, 2010 PROVO, Utah -- BYU defensive coordinator and secondary coach Jaime Hill has been fired with the Cougars off to their worst start in nearly four decades. Hill was fired Saturday, a day after BYU fell to Utah State, its fourth straight loss. Coach Bronco Mendenhall said in a statement he will take over Hill's duties, and graduate assistant Kelly Poppinga will work as a defensive coach for the rest of the season.

    The MWC needs to renegotiate their TV contract elsewhere. Even now they are a stronger conference than the Big East and ACC.

    18 Year Old Rutgers Student Commits Suicide

    After reading the initial article, I am curious as to how religion enters the picture. There didn't seem to be any mention of religion. Not even about this being a schadenfreude moment for the most ravenous of religionists.

    Behavior during conference?

    Drinking Coke or some lesser cola brand will help keep you alert for the sessions. Try not to spill any baggies of popcorn or cheerios on the furniture or carpet.

    Okay, I was wrong and BYU lost again. From now on I will leave this prophecy business to President Monson.

    Smart Mormons?... Even smarter "Atheists"??

    I took the abridged edition of this quiz and was able to get 15/15. The last question I knew only because I read the answer on another discussion board ahead of time. Something tells me that PrisonChaplain would have immediately have known about Jonathan Edwards and the Great Awakening, just like Canadian Mormons would know about the Great Hibernation.

    US Is 'Practically Owned' by China

    As long as Mormons hold fast to their rule against tea, ownership will never be complete. Besides, many countries have a piece of our pie.

    Why Mormons should embrace evolution

    So you are saying these "Doctors of Philosophy" are responsible for great advances, yet they are not certified to remove hang nails. How do you reconcile that discrepancy? Is it not due to having sworn allegiance to solid state capacitors rather than the Holy Ghost???!!! If you do have an answer, would it not tend to indicate evolution is proceeding in a positive direction?

    New TLC program: "Sister Wives"

    Excellent observation. Those other real life polygamists who have ever spoken on camera, have portrayed themselves and their beliefs as not only wacky but wacky in a neurotic way. The Brown family has portrayed themselves as normal and fairly wholesome people. No child brides or lost boys to be found at their house. They seem like they would make good neighbors with none of the worry that they would be burning sacrificial goats on their backyard altar.
  24. Perhaps it has something to do with the relative distance from Planet Utah to Earth.

    Possibly even reverting back to the Kingdom of Deseret, which existed prior to territorial formation?
