Your response does not lend itself to a productive/civil conversation and/or discussion. It does lead us down a road that ultimately leads to a cul-de-sac/dead end where we find ourselves going round and round wasting each other's time. Rather than leading us in an unproductive/uncivil direction, you might want to add substantively to the discussion?


Of course it doesn't, not with you, the buffoon who doesn't know what the ____ he is talking about and can only troll MD over and over again until you get frustrated and skulk off.

BAM!!!


You are freaking awesome!!!

Thank you so much!!!

I owe you!!!


Now, let me briefly say that, inasmuch as I didn't joint he church until 1978, this talk had quite a bit of staying power as it must have been recycled for at least several years until I finally heard it.


Nah, not particularly awesome. When I worked for the church, one of our jobs was to source citations and stories in manuals and conference addresses, so I have a lot of practice doing that. But you're welcome.

Oh, no. I want credit. If you're going to mention me, say something like, "John K. Williams, who by the way has written a wonderful book ..." :)

A friend of mine went to her bishop a few years ago because she was struggling with her testimony, having come across disturbing information about the early church. She was serving as the Relief Society president at the time, and the bishop just kept telling her to let it go and ignore it. One day her 6-year-old son was out helping her husband on their property. The father left the son alone with a riding tractor, and the boy took the opportunity to drive the tractor. The father returned to find his son crushed under the tractor, dead. When they sought comfort from the bishop, he told her this would not have happened had she not ignored her doubts and had instead stayed faithful.


This bishop is a monster.

LOL! I just edited the final version, which will be going up Sunday morning.

I plugged you by name and recommended your book.

Expect sales to go through the roof by Sunday night!

I'm already making plans for the money I'm going to make. :lol:

Seriously, though, thank you for the mention on your podcast.
