    What LGBTQ+ hath wrot

    Don’t look now but this is the topic that will(should?) fracture the church. Our Church, what we tout as the Lords, is sponsoring a Gay men’s Chorus on Temple grounds............ https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gay-mens-chorus-of-washington-dc-tickets-74633806725 I don’t support this. Why must the church say one thing, yet their actions send a different message.

    Really? The world is coming to this?

    I think it was four years ago that I went with the wife and daughter to see Rent, really didn’t care for the storyline, but the performers did a good job. We also went to see Beautiful on that trip, which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    CNN spin on the LGBT policy change

    Ok, please someone start listing the factual errors in the story. While there is some opinion in this article, what was Wrong? Sorry, I’m struggling with the whole idea of spending millions on “Meet the Mormons” and the “I’m a Mormon” campaign, to flip and suddenly the Mormon label is offensive to God. I’m struggling with reversal of the baptism of LGBTQAXYZ’s kids with the now we can. The fact that heteral and homo marriages will be treated equally when it comes to transgressions..... Why leave out kids of polygamists? Why no longer consider homosexuality being apostate? I believe the church is moving towards acceptance of homosexual marriage, and IT WILL in order to maintain tax exempt status. I will be praying and listening hard this weekend, because my heart is troubled by the inroads that the gay agenda is making in our church. With Bishops like Paul Augentstein and Richard Ostler being allowed to spread the agenda that it’s ok to be gay, bad times are coming....
  5. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed. As a (once) stay at home Dad I used to have the FAMILY proclamation thrown in my face a lot. Fact was, my wife wanted children but really did not do well as a stay at home parent. I did. I actually made more money than her when we initially started our reversal of roles. She now make much more than I do 20 years later, the kids are grown and we both work. I add this worked, and everything else works in our marriage because we act in a partnership. I did cook clean and do the laundry though. I still refuse to dust. I, glad you have found a way to go back to being a Mom.
  6. It wouldn’t be daunting at all, because it wouldn’t happen. Marriage ends all support. Maybe a few years down the road might help buy a house, but once a couple marries, their financial support is on them.

    BYU-Provo and tithes

    Ha! Well I might stand corrected when it comes to UW, but who wants to be a Huskie? We’ve toured TCU, UT-Austin(boy spent a week there when selected for Boys State....ewwww might be worse than Seattle) Florida State, RIT(wife’s school) as well as BSU, BYU-P and H. Those afore mentioned schools, except UT, all had the same feel, of course you get the modesty is hottestie Pepsi is a sin environment at the Y. Must admit my finances wouldn’t let us tour more. Sorry, just because the Y is a church school doesn’t make it great. It is a good school, and I know people who love it and disliked it, and I currently have two nieces and a nephew attending Provo.......sometimes their Dad even questions some of the stuff they say they are taught, and he’s an all is well kind of guy.

    BYU-Provo and tithes

    BYU Provo acceptance rate is ~50%. Like all Universities, high SAT/ACT scores and high Gpa’s do not guarantee admission, neither does being a full tithe payer. My daughter did the ACT prep class last summer at the Y, that week was enough to let her know she has no desire to go there. My family has a history of attending the Y, not myself, I attended CSUN and BSU. BYU is as bad as the rest when it comes to liberalism and whacky professors. Oh, it does not allow smoking or drinking on campus though, or growing of beards.......my oldest is attending BSU and has a beard, and if I’m lucky I’ll never write another check to BYU, as my daughter wants to go to BSU now......except for occasional mention of BYU-H.... TCU was where I hoped my son would have chosen to go to school, I liked their Campus, and their values.

    Flake saves the GOP

    Flake is a Rino and reminds me of that Nevada Senator Reid that likes to lie in pubic.

    Why is coffee or tea forbidden?

    Let me clarify something. I left the business that day and never returned. I have a great relationship with my mother and siblings, the brother mentioned is a somewhat strained one though. My Father is not welcome at my house and can pound sand. I go by my Moms when he’s not home, or stay outside to visit.

    Predictions on policy changes during conference?

    I was under the wrong impression..... 2. The song is about "excess in America" While there have been many theories that contemplate what the song represents, the Eagles' band members have revealed in multiple interviews that the true meaning behind "Hotel California" is a commentary on the hedonism and self-indulgence of America. “It’s basically a song about the dark underbelly of the American dream and about excess in America, which is something we knew a lot about,” Henley said in a 2002 interview with "60 Minutes." But I knew this little tidbit........ The line "They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can't kill the beast," is a playful jab to rock band Steely Dan.

    Vort, I was under the impression Hotel California was about a state run mental hospital in Calibasis, Ca. Will look into this......

    Why is coffee or tea forbidden?

    The man whom impregnated my mother gave my “inheritance” to my younger brother (8years younger) after he returned from his Mission. After I had worked so long and improved it during the 10 years I ran the Business, and I never saw it coming. Two months after his return from the mission field my Dad walked in with my brother and let me know he was my new Boss, that it was his business now, it was his reward for going on a mission, something I didn’t do. I left that day and never returned. Business does not exist any more, hurts me 30 years later still. One thing I truly dislike is the thought I might actually be sealed to that individual, and that is not good for my soul. Sucks......

    Why is coffee or tea forbidden?

    Culture I believe had more to do with it than anything. It is quite plain that DC89 was not given as a commandment. It evolved into one around the turn of the century. Bro Joseph drank wine. Brigham Young owned Breweries and distilleries, and actually had a monopoly of sorts in distribution. The brethren evolved into including it as a temple recommend requirement. It is a great promise of health, but for this life, or? Because I’ve known a few very Christlike men that lived the Word of Wisdom, yet died young of deseases. So now it’s a commandment. But I know many who believe tattoos are breaking a commandment, have more than one earring, etc, etc. I often wonder about those people that may have an occasional glass of wine, and are in good health, and the Bros and Sis’s that are 350lbs.....which is following the words of wisdom......... Culture and Policy often are masked with a tag of being doctrine....... disclaimer: I am NOT encouraging anyone to break the WoW. It is a great promise offered to us by the Lord.
