Wage Slavery is Freedom

August 14th, 2014 by Man SL

“It [feminism] is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands.”

Nightime is Dark

July 24th, 2014 by Man SL

A double blind study shows.

Also men wouldn’t work as hard, get as much education, and take desk jobs as much if it didn’t help in getting married.

And any sleeping around by a woman before marriage, any at all, increases the chance of divorce.

These studies were funded by the Foundation for Stuff You Figured Out on Your Own By the Time You Were Twelve and were conducted by the prestigious Institute for Cutting-Edge Bronze Age Social Tech.

“Police declined to press charges”

July 21st, 2014 by Vader

And I laud their exercise of prosecutorial discretion.

It would be a shame, though, if “Buzz” Aldrin’s application of rough justice compromises the libel suit.

And, on a related note, is anyone else as disturbed as I am over the amazing lack of attention paid to the 45th anniversary of the first Moon landing?

June 28, 2014

June 28th, 2014 by The Junior Ganymede

In God’s plan for the happiness and eternal progression of His children, the blessings of His priesthood are equally available to men and women. Only men are ordained to serve in priesthood offices. All service in the Church has equal merit in the eyes of God. We express profound gratitude for the millions of Latter-day Saint women and men who willingly and effectively serve God and His children. Because of their faith and service, they have discovered that the Church is a place of spiritual nourishment and growth.

We understand that from time to time Church members will have questions about Church doctrine, history, or practice. Members are always free to ask such questions and earnestly seek greater understanding. We feel special concern, however, for members who distance themselves from Church doctrine or practice and, by advocacy, encourage others to follow them.

Simply asking questions has never constituted apostasy. Apostasy is repeatedly acting in clear, open, and deliberate public opposition to the Church or its faithful leaders, or persisting, after receiving counsel, in teaching false doctrine.

The First Presidency and
Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Geteilte Freude ist doppelte Freude

June 21st, 2014 by Vader

Geteilter Schmerz halber Schmerz.

Which is why we are under solemn covenant to mourn with those that mourn. Reading Dan’s blog this week has been awfully hard on the photoreceptors, which don’t respond well to saltwater immersion.

And please consider making a modest donation to nowilaymedowntosleep.org, which Dan has indicated provided its free services to his family. I visited the web site and it seems like a very worthy charity.
