Yes! :smile: ! And the weird, discordant, totally unaware thing is that hugely error-prone L.M. tends to be the first to jump on people's typos, and make a big deal of them, mocking and demanding explanations!

It is these unexpected acts of kindness that endear the LDS Church to me.

That sounds like a fun film to see.

Moksha, your post transports me back to the Interpreter Foundation’s highly entertaining fifth birthday party. Anticipating the delightful festivities more than three years ago now, I wrote:
Tom wrote:Celebrants will have a rare opportunity to watch the classic satirical Super-8 home movie Oedipus Wrecked (starring Dr. Peterson as Teiresias, Dr. Midgley as Jocasta, and Dr. Hamblin in a delightful cameo role as Dr. Sigmund Freud). In addition, we can expect to catch a sneak preview of the long-awaited forthcoming film Bill and Dan's Excellent Adventure in Anti-Mormon Zombie Hell, the production of which was made possible by generous supporters of the Foundation. A wonderful time should be had by all.
I don’t know whether the full-length Bill and Dan’s Excellent Adventure will be available on demand on BYUtv any time soon, but I must insist that Dr. Peterson is being a bit modest about the realization of his fantasies.

The Unitarian Universalist church did the same thing for my wife, which has gained us many new, lovely, and delightful friends who are not Mormon. It's not the religion, it is the people.....

I think Dan and Lou have the new script and movie rights these days for a version of Mormon Dumb and Dumber...

I don't get how DCP et al can't handle the down-votes. Instead of prohibiting them, do what comedians do with hecklers - engage the heckler and ask the heckler to explain him/herself. Usually the heckler is drunk and/or incapable of explaining why they are heckling in the first place and putting a spotlight on the heckler will diffuse the situation rather quickly. Also, it shows how ____ they really are and how weak their opinions are. Show some balls for ____ sakes and deal with a little criticism.

It was certainly interesting to watch the Mopologists (Lou, kiwi and DCP) react so vehemently against the down-votes. It was a psychologically fascinating glimpse into their mindset. Anger, insecurity and their inability to deal with criticism were all publicly revealed and preserved for generations.

It was interesting to see DCP originally just publicly complain about the down-votes. Later, DCP encouraged his readers to block the down-voters and then report them to Patheos, at the same time letting his readers know that the down-votes were not bothering him. Finally, DCP removed all capabilities for any Sic et Non users to use the down-vote. Hilarious.

Gee, if they actually just lived the Gospel of Jesus Christ and love all as he has COMMANDED, and not just fake it, they wouldn't have any down votes. I wonder when the clue machine turns on for them to grasp..... :rolleyes:
