@Gunther Congratulations. How wonderful.
@real talk No, they can - usually, women only start going to the temple and doing those rituals when they get married, so they tend to go with their husbands. But older single women can do most of the rituals on their own.
Now, if you read the doctrine carefully, it IS true that you can't get into the highest level of heaven without a husband. And in the temple ritual, the husband is an intermediary between the wife and god. Which is fucked up, and only a small part of the reason I think the church is VERY sexist, not just a little.
(blah blah ex-Mormon lady soapbox blah.)
Goddammit, I was with you until the pinot grigio. Why must people hate on white wine so much? It goes so well with food! It's great on a hot day! WHATEVER.
It's never a good thing when my hometown makes the news.
Probably because my hometown is an awful, awful (and now apparently furry-infested) place.
@boyofdestiny OH NOW IT'S ON.
@Daniel.CLS Okay, even disregarding the part where you're being a dick ... did you not read the part where this guy has a full-time job now?
I mean, fucking SERIOUSLY, dude. I'm in awe of your obliviousness.
Fuck all y'all, CHICAGO-STYLE DEEP DISH 4 LYFE.
See, now I'm just sad that the Mormon article didn't mention funeral potatoes.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, funeral potatoes.
Long ago, I read something comparing it to the Cinderella Castle and NOW I CAN'T UNSEE IT. (This is probably why I'm now totally apostate heathen etc.)
