mormonspeak This active Mormon and Southern Virginia University (lds themed college) murdered his lds wife. He was very abusive and scary with his next lds wife. There is an amazing news report on it, I think it is 20/20. 1mon

  •   ali_spears12 @mormonspeak well I'm very sorry you have nothing better to do than what you're doing! If I could block me from seeing your annoying posts I would in a heart beat but unfortunately Instagram does not allow that. I hope you find something more productive to spend your days I honestly feel sorry for you I'll keep you in my prayers 2mon
  •   j.ben.smith LOL what are you trying to do? Millions of crimes are committed by people of any religion. As soon as it's a Mormon that did it, you blame the whole institution. Logical fallacies up the WAZOO with you @mormonspeak 1mon
  •   mormonspeak @j.ben.smith When I was 11, I was sexually abused by a Mormon scoutmaster picked in that position by church leaders. In this post and most of the ones I have picked out, it is church leaders in positions over others taking advantage of other members, sexually or financially. 1mon
  •   j.ben.smith That is horrible and I'm sorry for what happened to you. Everything happens for a purpose. I was called to be a Ward Mission Leader and was horrible at it. Was the Bishop not receiving revelation? Who knows. I can only take what happened to me and keep moving on. Turn it around and make myself better from what I have learned. Corruption in the system is always cut out, especially in a church that is led by the Creator of everything. We're here to experience where Joy and Sadness come from, and we're here to learn how to choose those things which will give us Joy. 1mon
  •   lanedaisy @j.ben.smith Very well said! Apparently, Mormons are expected to be perfect. Last I checked, Mormons are humans--imperfect beings. And unfortunately, there are many Mormons who do bad things--even in leadership positions. If being a Mormon means you're perfect, then I believe the entire population would convert, no questions asked. 1mon
  •   miaxolouise No one is perfect, @lanedaisy. I'm not sure where you picked up the idea that those of the LDS faith view themselves as "perfect", but as someone practicing the religion, everyone I encounter is grateful for the Atonement, because we're human. Every single person in the church has their own struggles, and I've never looked at a member and thought they view themselves as ideal. Do some struggle with pride? Yes. Are there corrupt individuals? Yes, unfortunately. The people in the church are not perfect, but the church is true. I wasn't raised in the church, and I even fell away for awhile and returned. My reactivation was a blessing. The obsession you all have with "disproving" the faith shows that you're not truly happy with your feelings in regards to the church. I hope someday you can find peace. 3w

mormonspeak Mormons are not allowed to drink tea, except for herbal tea. I had non-herbal tea for the first time ever this year. I wasn't missing out on anything. Repost from @justanotherapostate 1h
  •   mormonspeak @notaloserlikeyou Correct. Only herbal like Celestial Seasonings. 53min
  •   mormonspeak Mormon pioneers drank a tea brewed from other ephedra species, called "Mormon tea" and "Indian tea". 53min
  •   notaloserlikeyou I recall some brouhaha involving Mitt Romney eating coffee ice cream 52min
  •   notaloserlikeyou Googles never really clear on if it's just hot beverages or all coffee. I guess some Mormons do it differently 52min
  •   mormonspeak @notaloserlikeyou The hot drink thing is bogus. You can have hot chocolate and hot herbal tea. All coffee bad but I know lots of Mormons that have the frappo drinks at Starbucks. I think I am still a coffee virgin. I have no desire to try it. 48min
  •   oliviallang Some people say that Mormons don't really have a refined palate because they didn't grow up with it in their house. They don't know how to handle bitter tastes 30min
  •   mormonspeak @oliviallang that is an interesting point. That may be why I lean heavy on sweet foods. 29min
  •   oliviallang I do too 28min

mormonspeak I hate it when Mormon scriptures disagree with each other. (Sarcastic tone) ---Doctrine and Covenants (D&C) and Book of Mormon. 3h

mormonspeak Oftentimes there are beliefs in Mormon culture that just sprout up and stick around even though those beliefs are not directly talked about anymore or ever in General Conference. One of those types of LDS cultural beliefs that I like a lot is the Mormon belief that mentally challenged people are perfect spirits in the preexistence (life before Earth life) that just needed a body and are automatically going to the Celestial Kingdom. I am not sure how wide spread this belief is among members today but I know a lot of Mormons that believe this. It is actually a really sweet belief. I like it a lot. What are your thoughts? 3d
