Hurts Doughnut

"Have you ever had a hurts doughnut?" < "No." > Pow! (punches sucker in the arm). "Hurts don't it?"

Has this ever happened to you? It's a slightly painful prank that most people only fall for once. It's funny right...for the person who does the hitting anyway. Some victims laugh the pain off, some think "lesson learned," but others hit back.

The LDS church is the worlds biggest Hurts Doughnut, but the damage done is more painful…

Guilt like White Elephants

A recent forum topic on produced for me some of the laugh-out-loud funniest accounts I’ve ever read of Missionary indiscretion and rule-breaking. I started to write a response of my own but the muse was with me and it began to take on a life. I came to realize there might be a story here worth fleshing out. I hope I’m not wrong.

I served in San Diego in the late 80's and my mission was lousy with stories of elders surfing, sexing up the locals and pulling odometer… Continue

The Appearance of Evil

Hello everyone! I am the Devil. Now I know my appearance raises emotion and judgment, but I didn't always look like this. All I did was propose a plan to save everybody and boy did I take a beating for that. Clearly the other guy had a better plan which allowed room for fire and brimstone (who doesn't love that)?

Long story short, contrary to popular belief, I was sent down to Earth to a proper non - judgmental Mormon family. I never quite fit the mold, but I did appreciate a few… Continue

After seeing "Meet The Mormons" and the creepy presence of having a local leader creeping around the reporter and the person being interviewed, it reminded me of the BBC's John Sweeney's experience when he interviewed Tommy Davis of the Scientology church

"Are we there yet?"

This Thursday, we are told, the big truck containing our belongings should arrive between 9 and 11 am MDT. We'll see! I've heard this tale before!

After several miscues, it seems our belongings will join us in our new home in Greeley, CO! Yay!

We love the house. It's great being near the in-laws. The weather suits us perfectly (so far). Good, eh?

Downside: Wife, in-laws and my parents have had so much in their recent lives that has sent them reeling that I must hang on…

Utah's Drug Problem

I watched an episode of a National Geographic show called Drugs Inc. that really made me think about this issue and what the repercussions for Utah could be.

Has anyone else been worried about this or had experience with it?

Thanks Guys!

Average Mormon vs Average Non-Mormon View of Facts

It’s no surprise that when it come to the average non-Mormon and the average Mormon, we don’t always see eye to eye. Let’s take a look at just a couple of the most key aspects of the Mormon religion and see where the two sides are generally falling on the matter.

Buying Our Way Into Heaven

Growing up in the Mormon faith I can recall many an occasion when the catholic was used as as the prime example of corruption and therefore proof of its falsehood. I remember a teacher telling our Sunday School class once that catholic church would tell its members that they if they payed a certain amount of money that the church had the ability to purchase their dead loved ones out of hell. Many of these followers were peasants and in low standing in the world and could…

Exposing the numbers behind LDS Growth in Latin America: A Missionary Confession

Once upon a time, I was a missionary in one of the highest baptizing missions in the world.  You see, as an LDS missionary, your heart is set on converting even just one soul to the Gospel of Mormonism during your 18-24 months.  In many missions around the world, you're lucky to even get that one savory experience.  When I arrived to Santiago Chile towards the end of April 1998, the monthly goal per each missionary companionship was 10 baptisms, month-after-month.  I had heard of the…

Escape From Mormon Island!

Being roughly two years since I returned from my mission, I've decided it's finally about time to share my "awakening" experience and relevant thoughts.

I did it without the internet. Just studying the scriptures during my mission I noticed lots of inconsistencies and flat out insane crap that Mormons believe. After I spent a while reading the Old Testament I couldn't even believe what I was reading anymore. Besides being utterly cruel , it was far from anything feasible, even with…

Really nice to know I'm not welcome here.

I know I'm not perfect and have my weak, low points. But I've always done my best to rectify and fix that.

But whatever. I'll just shut up and leave because it's obvious it's what the community here as a collectively would like.

Lamenting Mormonism

It kinda sucks how Mormonism stole so much from our lives. With all that time spent on a mission and at church meetings so much could have been accomplished! Two years is long enough to make $100,000 for many people. Family bonds are smashed to pieces all the time because of Mormonism. It's regrettable; enough even to make you want to grab Eyring by the balls and squeeze 'em until his eyeballs pop.

One of my greatest hopes is to become a billionaire someday and provide the kind of…

A moving experience

My TBM wife and I are moving from our home in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex to northern Colorado. The moving van arrives Monday and will load all our belongings, except what we would prefer to carry ourselves in our 5x8 cargo trailer and Dodge Grand Caravan. We will drive to Salina, KS on Tuesday and spend the night. Wednesday we will finish the drive, arriving at my in-laws' home, where we will stay until we find our new home.


My in-laws are facing the challenges of…

Interesting Blog Post - Temple Wedding / Interview Process

I don't know how many of you are familiar with Single Dad Laughing. He writes a pretty good blog, generally never touches on topics of the church.

But today he did. It's pretty great. I feel like it summarizes how many of us feel about temple weddings.

And, of course, there are plenty of comments to troll. Enjoy.
