Shades,

I think people need to be held accountable for their accusations. I think a rule should be as follows:

"Making accusations without hard evidence for those accusations is not allowed, especially if the method of proving innocence has been made absolutely impossible is not allowed."

I think the situation is unfair. They are accusing me of being SI with no more than matrixing methodology, and providing me no method of disproving them. This technically could cause a legal liability against the board.

Hey guy, as far as I can see NO one has accused you of being Sports Illustrated. You are once again suffering from delusions of grandeur.

Can we talk about what happens in the Celelstial room in the temple in the Terestrial forumn?

I am just joking, thanks for this awesome forumn. As a former Mormon who is still very interested in church affairs I love open discussions about the church!

"[MODERATOR NOTE: Mocnarf, if you wish to have a picture of overt temple content as part of your signature line, you'll have to limit yourself to only posting in the Telestial Forum. Is that a limitation you're willing to accept?]"

Im new here and was reading these rules and was wondering what is overt temple content exactly? I've never heard that term before.

Have you "taken out your endowments" in an LDS temple? If so, then you may not reveal or discuss what you learned there in any forum other than the Telestial Forum.

In other words, the things you did and learned there are "overt temple content."

Update for 01/17/2011: Added clarifiers to include a person's family members under the "personal attacks" provisos. Also added a second rule to the rules for the Telestial Forum that no personal attacks against a person's family members are allowed there, either.

Dr. Shades,

I'm wondering if you approve of or are even aware of this moderator action taken:

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6747&view=previous


It seems very anti-free speech and not libertarian, as well as a textbook case of unnecessary censorship and MAD moderating.

Thanks in advance,

Soso

It is not about logic or truth or reality; in fact, it is not about what is best for the member or the membership. In my forty years around the LDS Church and my twenty-three years as a member, including my time in the bishopric it is not consistantly about anything but the ego of whatever LDS "leader" is making whatever proclaimation or revelation available to those who are to be controled at any given point in time. Consequently, there is no need for consistantsy so long as the statement works.

He or she does not have to concern themselves with logic or truth in a sub culture where you can simply accuse anyone who even asks a question a "leader" does not like of "murmering against the Church." And if they try to defend themselves with more logic or truth, ultimately you can excommunicate them. In fact, if they are telling the truth, it is even more important to discredit them--especially it they are still alive and able to continue enlightening their fellow man. Truth is a very contagious thing. If your house is built on a lie the "logic" comes in what effectively perpetuates the lie. Perception is reality.

That is a very hard thing to face because we keep wanting to place the Church in the psychological structure we built when we felt good about it, that time before the doubts began to creep in. We want to believe. We keep wanting to take responsibility for our alienation thinking if we had just faithfully and /or intelligently kept our concerns to ourself our brothers and sisters would still love us. But truth in the face of deception is a seed that grows in the genuine person's mind and heart. It is only in the heart of a deceiver that a lie can become a lifestyle.

Even if we say all psychological structure is a metaphor for reality and rationalize obvious Mormon deception as a positive metaphor that produced good fruits (That was my personal rationalation for getting up on the stand and knowing I was presenting things as true every third Sunday, that clearly were not. I told myself it was for the good of those listening.) sooner or later the truth will find itself out and the longer you cage it, the harder it is on yourself and those you lie to.

Thank you for that observation. I hope I have followed the rules; i am very new at this posting thing.
