    BYU confuses LGBT discussion by offering data

    Eh, if I’m wrong, fine. I don’t care. I look at the big picture here. Fewer people are committing suicide. That’s a wonderful thing. A very wonderful thing. Thank God. I pray it’s true.

    It’s human nature. I think it’s an ego thing. “What? How dare someone disagree with me? How dare someone challenge my beliefs?” Liberals and conservatives both do this, but 99% of the time they lack the self awareness to notice it. Again, for the second time I am also guilty of it.

    Oh agree. But, like we all know, we love studies when we agree with the outcome. We dismiss them when we disagree with the outcome, even if the outcome is probably correct. Yes, I include myself. Again though, this is a very good thing and I hope and pray it’s accurate.

    No matter what your politics are, I’m 100% confident that almost no one wants people to commit suicide. So there’s that. This study makes me very happy for that reason. However, it’s just one study. It also says something that all of us want to believe, so confirmation bias kicks in for us too. I’d like to see more than one study, maybe from a non-church institution, but this is, obviously a good thing. No one is sad about this.

    This seems so uncomfortable

    Given that we share interests and senses of humor, I’m very confident you’ll be in the next cell over.

    Am extremely important question

    Oh, understand fully bro.
  7. All of us could learn from what you said here. All of us.
  8. There was for me, but it was almost always adaptable. I had a pager in high school and the rule was “if my parents page me twice in row, I have to call them ASAP”. Totally fair.

    I share your opinion too, but it’s not a hill I’m going to die on.

    Well, they might not like you either, to be fair. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like my local ward very much, and they assuredly share the opinion of me. Sometimes it’s really hard when you do not look like or act like a stereotypical LDS. But, me not liking them doesn't mean I hope they don’t get to Heaven. Yes, sharing eternity with one another is not a selling point for membership sometimes. It’s good to remember that everyone, even people you dislike, are probably trying their best to be decent people. Sadly though, being a jerk is universal and we’ve all met jerks in our church. I’m 100% confident that in the Celestial Kingdom our personality quirks and disagreements will be settled. That guy you hate here might be your best friend up in the Kingdom. We’ll be shocked to see who is among us in the afterlife. And, more importantly, we’ll be shocked to see who isn’t there. To be clear bro, I sort of see your point. There are members who I don’t want to spend five minutes with, much less eternity. I know they say the same way about me. Hopefully we’ll all be able to put our swords down in the next life. And we’ll all be Gators fans up there.
