Sunday in Outer Blogness: Apostasy Edition!
In response to last week’s news (about all that apostasy), the exmo/borderland community stepped up with lots of helpful discussion and ideas! Including fun ways to introduce less faith-promoting information. Personally, I think correlation is the problem — if people weren’t told to discuss only what the correlated manuals tell them to discuss, they wouldn’t be shocked to discover that there’s interesting info outside the manual. Plus less correlation = more fun! (Even gospel topics!)
(Maybe next the exmos will have suggestions for getting along with the French.)
In other news, it hasn’t been a great week for women. In addition to the usual humiliations, our health care is thrown under the bus (since freedom is slavery and being treated like property is respect).
And, while we’re on the subject of people’s rights, the overturn of Prop 8 made a big splash, and another state may be next!
In personal stories, BKP strikes again, turning a tragic event horrific! General J.C. Christian told two interesting stories of his life in Mormon-land. Dad’s Primal Scream actually danced onstage on Broadway!!! And he’s kind enough to share his NYC trip tips with the rest of us. Bill Hess has been posting photos of his great whale rescue adventure (which was later made into a movie). Maya visited Mormon Lake.
In discussion topics: peculiarity, diversity, and empathy; causes, beliefs, and ethics. The CoJCoL-dS has some interesting insurance policies. Panties!! Atheists: beat ‘em or join ‘em? And how about this fantasy?
Sorry I haven’t had much time for Internet this past week, but I hope next week will be livelier. We’re in the last stretch on the Brodies voting — so if you haven’t voted yet, don’t miss your chance!!
