    If they did, I expect HB would beat out most of the competition, but Surfah would remain abreast of him as the final votes were tallied.

    Lots of drama in LDS churches lately.

    https://www.ksl.com/?sid=46370403&nid=148

    A Layton man accused of punching a teenage boy in the face during church has been charged with felony child abuse.

    Pio Pauulu, 40, was charged Thursday in 2nd District Court with child abuse, a third-degree felony, and child abuse, a class A misdemeanor.

    On May 6, police say a 15-year-old boy was attending church at an LDS meetinghouse, 1625 S. 1125 West, when Pauulu called him over to where he was sitting.

    He told the boy, "'Don't do that to my daughter again.' The boy told the defendant that he did not know what the defendant was talking about. The boy said the man then punched him in the jaw," according to charging documents.

    The teen left the chapel and walked outside the church. Pauulu followed him "and grabbed him by the neck, strangling him," the charges state.

    One witness told police that Pauulu was "holding the boy by the neck. He stated that he heard the defendant threaten to kill the boy," according to the charges.

    Pauulu claimed he saw the boy make a sexual gesture toward his daughter.

    "He said that he followed the boy out of the chapel, grabbed him by his tie and told the boy not to do that to his daughters. The defendant denied hitting the boy in the chapel or strangling him," the charges say.

    I know there's probably no place in civil society for this, but if the boy did do something wildly inappropriate, I'd probably be okay with dropping the charges.

    Even if he did, punching and chocking the kid seems a bit of an over reaction.

    What the father did was culturally appropriate. May not be my way (gun shot from a grassy knoll) but it got the job done.

    "and grabbed him by the neck, strangling him,"
    I'm gonna say this would not qualify as ministering on the quarterly report.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    On my mission, we had a Hawaiian elder who was a body builder. A priest in our ward was struggling, so his mom dropped him off at our apartment on P-day so we could be a good influence. About five minutes in, he called his mom on his Nokia (I was openly judging his parents for giving their son a cell phone) and demanded that she come pick him up. During the call, he said, "Why are you such a bitch?" The good Hawaiian elder calmly stood up, walked toward the boy, and broke the kid's jaw. Parents didn't press charged, but threatened to. Elder got a stern talking to, and his stake president was called. His stake president happened to be this elder's father, and after chewing out the elder on speaker, asked to speak to the elder privately, at which point he said, "Sometimes you have to teach those white boys respect."

    Well boys, it looks like it’s time for a title change.

    Which version of the name change directive are we on? 3? Haven't they tried this before? The term 'Mormon' will never go away.

    I can only guess how a convo between a Mormon (oops!) and a neighbor will go:

    "I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints".

    "Which church is that?"

    "The Church of Jesus Christ".

    "Oh you go to the Church of Christ down the road?"

    "No, the restored Church of Jesus Christ".

    "Hmm. I haven't seen that one in town. Is it new?"

    "No...
    The Mormon church, alright? I'm a Mormon, I mean, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints".

    I will follow the style guide when they listen to LGBTQ people and stop using terms like same sex attraction.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    This one made me laugh:

    · The term "Mormonism" is inaccurate and should not be used. When describing the combination of doctrine, culture and lifestyle unique to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the term "the restored gospel of Jesus Christ" is accurate and preferred.
