Maybe it was the children baptismal and blessings thing in the news.

When in good conscious you no longer can be part of something wrong, just so wrong.

Does the Facebook resignation carry the same eternal authority as the right paperwork signed by the bishop and Stake President? Perhaps the Church could designate and sanctify a particular Facebook Page or Web Server for this purpose. With the Proper Preisthood Authority sanctifying the designated Cyberspace for this purpose, the Saints could be assured that these eternal designations recorded at the right level in the heavens.

Perhaps the Lord would accept Twitter, MySpace, and Google Circle resignations as well.

The only authority required to do so, would truly and only lie within those disenchanted members themselves, because that is where the real functional authority lies...in the members themselves.

Mormon Facebook Resignation is up onto the front page of Google's search request, and just in time for finding out how abusive LDS leadership individuals are being toward the kids, the children. The innocent.

It really is worse that you thought!

LDS Church Mass Resignations is the page reference on Facebook

http://www.facebook.com/events/326930167477474/
November 14th City Creek Park, Salt Lake City, UT 84103
For anyone ready to resign from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and those who wish to support them.

**Not for those wishing to disrespect or dismiss the feelings of those wishing to participate..that said I will remove any thread that is dissmissive or rude

For those not local: Please feel free to participate by sending in your letter the day we submit ours. You will be with us in spirit as we will be with you.

OK SO here's the plan so far (will be updated periodically):
1`) Walk/ March together around Temple square and deposit our letters in a mail box near the church office. e bring just a personal letter to the church about why you resigned. All those simply in support are of course welcome too. We will listen to 4-5 tesimonials/ speakers at the park while people who need to get their letters together.

2) Walk/ March together around Temple square and deposit our letters in a mail box near the church office. (We have found a mail box for this..yay)

On Site Resources: Two notary publics have volunteers to be present at the event to notarize your letters. Thank you Bryan and Lindsey.

Extra letter templates and envelopes for those that forget to bring theirs but with to participate (this will be in limited supply so please plan to bring your own).

A lawyer on site and affiliated with the event will be offering advice to make sure our resignations are processed immediately and without ward leader intervention.

TBD: Bubbles or other fun thing for kids?

It's great to have things spin-up quickly and nicely as needed.

Here's how a soft cult like Mormonism is much more dangerous than any of the FLDS camps.

Wow! Facebook has been lit up all week now, there are folks calling this the last straw. Next to Temple Square in Salt Lake City is the City Creek (mall) Center and the many LDS resignations are going to all happen together like one big happy family.

Resignation letter read from pulpit (has f-bomb warning) but is still damn amusing.

I love the line about the BoM musical.

Also I think it is very telling where he says he can sleep at night knowing that in the morning the church will be just the hysterical fraud it was the night before.

I know! The guy is sharp, has a good personality and is fairly practiced. The intrigued audience loves and knew all about The Book Of Mormon play. The Broadway hit is playing over and over again in more than several cities.

When asked about what others would think.

How it might affect a family member like a parent.

Y'know?... Is it anyone's business. I mean, I see the same thing in (so called) Christian Church circles and clicks sometimes. I thought it was part of the individual and what they communicate with their God. What exists in their heart and not a stupid file on a piece of paper.

Whether anybody finds out about a file in error and misconstrued something else is in their own head.
And may not be a problem you can do one thing about.

Turn the thing around. What if all of the file and paperwork was in order but the friend or parent knew that your heart wasn't in it. You could try and tell me that that wouldn't bother them?

Tell em, "My heart is right with God - - - Is yours?", like I never cared less what somebody else's confusion believed.

In other words, tell anybody that is that damn nosey that you are on protest and your heart is right with God. What'd the eff, they gonna say? Especially when maybe asked, "Is their heart right with God?", when put squarely in their place.

Uh hunhh, right, sure it is

Isn't NYC more saturated with a booming gay culture than maybe somewhere like SLC, right inside what many would easily consider a hotbed of severe and oppressive religiously?

Why then all of the controversy? Well, be surprised again! The SLC area houses more gay families than the city of New York after adjusting for population size differences.

The Mayor in SLC is gay. It's almost unbelievable as Mormonism itself. Heh...Heh...


"Williams pointed out that while the state overall was conservative, a recent poll showed that the capital Salt Lake City had a higher percentage of LGBT residents than New York."

Even if you might have a difficult time in adjusting imbedded Mormonism embraces, with todays current events.

The LDS church (small C) has an incredibly selfish agenda. Incredible history of family destruction with only veneers of family protection. Their temple money to have families to only meet LDS specifications is sickeningly sorrowful for so-called saints.

Interesting!  And yet 'totally conservative', SLC Utah, just elected a brand new mayor.  And shhhhh... she's very openly gay.
 

Who or what is this article maybe defending?
