Facebook Proclamations

I am amazed at how much time people spend on Facebook.  I post rarely, though it is nice to stay in touch with people growing up, even if I don’t comment.  A few years ago, I noticed on Facebook an announcement from one of my Facebook “friends.”  He posted his resignation letter from the LDS […]

Questions for Mormons

Most of the people who come to my blog are Mormons, but there are some that aren’t.  I have been surprised that my 3-year old post on the Trial of Joseph’s Assassins has suddenly developed a spirited discussion.  I want to keep that post on topic, so I have decided to move some of the […]

The Religious Test and Cleanflix

I thought I would take a quick break from the Bushman interview for this little post.   I attended the Ogden Film Festival last week (officially known as the Foursite Film Festival) and saw 2 films: The Religious Test and Cleanflix: the Documentary.  I thought I would give my impressions.

Where are you Greenland?

Anonymous bad behavior: Are you guilty?

Internet anonymity can have both good and bad consqeuences.  Some people can fall in love, yet never meet in person.  Others, can engage in sociopathic behavior that they would not do without the cloak of anonymity. This blog came about because I wanted to ask provocative questions that I didn’t feel safe to do in […]

Diversity in the Church

First of all, let me say that I am truly sad about Pres Hinckley’s passing. He is a true inspiration, and I, as well as the church will greatly miss him. His humor, and candor will be greatly missed. Newsweek has an interesting article found at http://www.newsweek.com/id/105857/page/2 It talks about diversity in the church, and […]
