Jen replied to xtranch's discussion autobiography of Ann Eliza Young
"Read it years ago, and enjoyed the history it told of church. The history of Young and his wives is one that should be made more public. The woman were exploited as youth and cast out when aged, having servered their sexual duties."

Martin MacNeill convicted

Posted on November 9, 2013 at 5:00pm 0 Comments

just saw on the news that this prominent mormon doctor and bishop was convicted for killing his wife so he could keep his mistress. apparently his daughters were cheering for his conviction. there is plenty of history in the church of leaders using their power to dominate women for sexual exploitation. the culture of women being subservient encourages this kind of behavior. Im sure the LDS higher ups are cringing about this case. he must have thought he could get away with it. lets see what…

BYU tv

Posted on November 4, 2012 at 12:59pm 0 Comments

As part of my tv setup I get BYU tv. It has been many years since I have been to the lds church. Sometimes I watch a segment, just to see what they are saying. I am fascinated to see those pious elders and scholars discussing various aspects of Joseph's life and his writings. It is pretty much brainwashing. They wouldnt dare tell the real history of the church. Today anyone who wants an accurate accounting can go to the Utah Lighthouse Ministry for information. I have purchased a number of…

Dear xtranch,

 

Having been raised in a family of six with a single mother (my dad left us six months after my mother had her last child), i am can only agree with you that having a great number of childre is not the most sensible and intelligent things to do .

`

My opinion is that it is best to have 2 or 3 that you can properly take care of and look after and whom you have really decided to have than to have more that you abandon or dont take care of ... and the overpopulation aspect is also a very serious one ..
