“Man”

September 30th, 2013 by Inigo Montoya

I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

My father, may his memory be ever blessed, if he had made a list of things every man over 30 should have, would have had just two items:    (more…)

The Singing Won’t be the Same

September 25th, 2013 by John Mansfield

It looks like the men and boys of the priesthood will no longer gather in bodies of a few or several dozen thoughout the land to listen to their leaders cheer and admonish them from Salt Lake City. (link)

“Therefore, he took Moses out of their midst, and the Holy Priesthood also.”—Doctrine and Covenants 84:25

The Fundamental Religious Impulse is Submission to Reality

September 24th, 2013 by G.

Dorothy Sayers talks about people who refuse assent to reality,who rebel against the nature of things and who choose to think that what we at the moment want is the centre of the universe to which everything else ought to accommodate itself. This is the ideology of hell, and like all things hellish, it is ubiquitous.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

On Logic, Faulty and Snarky

Parenting advice

September 20th, 2013 by Vader

Occasionally His Majesty dredges up some parenting advice that is remarkably good, considering he’s an retired evil galactic overlord.  He shared the following bit of wisdom with me over his coffee and donuts this morning:     (more…)

The Mormon Evangelist’s Wife

September 20th, 2013 by John Mansfield

Finishing up with back-to-school night at Ridgeview Middle School, a middle-aged woman in a skirt with a name tag walked down the hall toward me and past me. All the teachers’ name tags were white with black lettering, but this one was black with white lettering. When a bishop or stake president shows up at his eighth-graders’ school, his title is Mister, and his wife’s is Mrs. The call of a mission president and his wife is full-time, though, and even when attending her children’s needs, she is Sister to all she meets, to the saints and especially to the gentiles.

September 19th, 2013 by G.

Darwin_Fish_by_deaddamien People who accept evolution sometimes use it as a tool to decide whether religion is true or not. People who accept the gospel sometimes also use it as a tool to decide whether evolution can be true or not. People who accept evolution sometimes also use it as a tool to interpret religion–religion, they argue, must offer evolutionary benefits, since it is so widespread. These are all examples of treating either the gospel or evolutionary biology as true and putting the other in the dock.

But what if you treat both as true? (more…)

Jesus is the Rainbow Unicorn of My Salvation, Huglelujah.

September 19th, 2013 by G.

There is a serious argument to be made that the Kingdom doesn’t lose men like most churches do because the priesthood gives us an honored and distinct religious role. (more…)

Drone Warfare

September 19th, 2013 by Bertie

I offer up for the plaudits of the cognoscenti this dashed little meditation on current events. But, please, don’t praise me or you’ll raise a blush on my manly ch. A Wooster knows when to be modest. A feller simply can’t help it when the Muse rather slaps him upside the head, don’t you know? (more…)
