Digging Through Trash: Symbols in Tyler Glenn’s (ex)Mormon Music Video

screen-shot-2016-10-17-at-2-43-44-pm

New Mormon LGBT Policy Promotes Child Abuse in God’s Name

Full text of the policy regarding children of same-sex couples.

Whatever comes, however this is handled, the fallout from the news that leaked on Thursday will ripple down to generations to come. For those who don’t know, the Mormon Church changed their official policy for how to handle …

Elder Uchtdorf’s Spiritual Abuse:
“Be Not Afraid, Just Tune Out All Opposing Signals”

Keep Calm and Believe Believe

When I first heard Elder Uchtdorf’s Saturday morning talk during the October 2015 General Conference, I had high hopes it signaled a movement toward a kinder, gentler LDS Church.

Mormon Marriage Equality Is Next

Mark E Petersen racist quote

Within eight years or less, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will allow civil same-sex marriage to members. Another five years after that, the Church will allow same-sex temple marriage. I’ve been making this prediction for a couple of years now. With Friday’s SCOTUS ruling, it’s time for me to go on record. Seven …
