Re: Spiff's "The Last Jedi" Review (Spoilers)

I believe Star Wars, at its heart, is a family's saga. Unfortunately for the sequels, the writers have pretty much admitted that they are rejecting the "Force runs in the Skywalker family" storyline as a rejection of the modern political landscape where a few families have undue influence over nati...

Re: Spiff's "The Last Jedi" Review (Spoilers)

I know I'm going against the grain, but Jar Jar Binks aside I enjoyed the prequels. They brought good light saber action (and just lots of action in general) and good music. I didn't like "Annie" the kid so much (I wish they had just started with him as a teenager) but the pod racing was fun and I ...

Re: President Monson

President Monson was the last Apostle remaining that was an Apostle when I joined the Church back in 1976. Hard to believe that all of those men are now working on the other side of the veil. Hard to believe also that we'll probably be replacing a 90 year old with a 93 year old. President Nelson wi...

Re: Spiff's "The Last Jedi" Review (Spoilers)

The sequels, comparatively speaking, are a breath of fresh air after the awful prequels. But when all is said and done, I stick with the 3 originals and ignore what Hollywood has tried to do with the before and after. None of them measure up.

Re: Prop 8 Revisited

"Over time, Church leaders and members advanced many theories to explain the priesthood and temple restrictions. None of these explanations is accepted today as the official doctrine of the Church." I guess people manage to read and interpret that in different ways. To me, it means that the reasons...

Re: Prop 8 Revisited

Or, even worse, they suggest members leaving is somehow the Church's fault. You take a pretty hard tone in some of your posts. Sometimes it has been the Church's fault that people leave. You must remember, it's a case by case basis. There are all kinds of disturbing examples. I've had some pretty l...

Re: Prop 8 Revisited

It's like the scriptures say: When you have 100 sheep, and 1 of them gets lost, pssh, whatever, bye you stupid sheep. I'm not forgetting or ignoring the parable of the lost sheep. I'm commenting on the tone some posts have where it seems like they're saying the Church itself is jeopardized when som...

Re: Prop 8 Revisited

A lot of talk in this thread seems to be going on the thinking that the Church is in trouble when members leave it (for whatever foolish reason). The Church will be fine. The Lord can do His own work. It's those that have left it that have the problem. They need the Church far more than it needs them.

Re: Dick Harmon on Rise and Fall of BYU Athletics

How is BYU bigoted, in your opinion? From firing a BYUi professor for posting her support of LGBT rights to marry, to electrocuting gay men's penises in the 70's. There's a myriad of examples. Are you serious? Here we go again. Sounds like you're one of these numbskulls who think because Jesus was ...
