The Mormon Double Bind

Posted on November 9, 2009 at 9:05pm 0 Comments

Of all the communications, internal honesty seems to be extremely difficult, yet we blithely go on believing that we are true to ourselves and true about ourselves. Self-deception in the realm of working out a relationship with a divine being seems particularly fraught with potential pitfalls. This site has a ton of information on self-deception and is a decent starting point on avoiding self-deception.

Heavenly Sex -- A Response

Posted on January 8, 2009 at 9:30am 1 Comment

A Salt Lake Tribune Article quoted a Washington Times religion writer in a little blog post today on the Mormon's highly sexed version of the afterlife and how that might have played into their rabid opposition to Proposition 8.

The unease comes in part from the knowledge that in many circles money is power and an institution that has power economically as well as socially and spiritually (intended to include the ability to influence thought and action in its believers) is a formidable and daunting foe. Proposition 8 is… Continue

The Subversive Manifesto

Posted on November 2, 2008 at 9:47am 8 Comments

The Preface:



I want to be subversive. I want to undermine. I want to transform. I want to lead.



Maybe it was all the stories of my youth about the prophets that were to rise up in the last days and bring about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Maybe it was the prospect of becoming one of the missionaries that brought religion to the God-less Commies. Maybe it was the belief that there would be “one, mighty and strong” in the last days, besides Joseph Smith… Continue
