Where has everybody gone?

March 16, 2008

Well, I guess this group blog has gone the way of the other group blog that I participated in when I was on Blogger.  This was a lot of fun.  Until anyone else decides to post, I am going to put some things up here from time to time in the hopes that we can get things going again.  It looks like Mormon Matters is doing well, and I have enjoyed some of the posts.  Hopefully we can get things going again here.




  1. Hi Chris! I guess we need a new list of topics. Do any of our readers have some suggestions that they would like to see discussed?

  2. I’m still down to post, at least for the next 6 weeks or so. Things have just been busy lately.

  3. Such is the shelf life of blogs that shamelessly strive to dredge up molehills in the Church in order to foment mountains…while simultaniously claiming to do it all in the name of “righteous concern.”


    1)The “Divining Rod” submission,
    2)The “The new Joseph Smith manual…zzzzzzzz” submission,
    3)Elements of “Thou Shall Not Watch Rated-R Movies”
    (rather, the way the argument was presented…pitting prophets against their own good intent, and well as against members themselves.) Nothing against R movies generally, but when you claim to assume that just because President Benson spoke to young men in the 1980s, somehow he was only speaking to children…not their parents (or to these very boys themselves when they become men.)

    There are more examples which could be mentioned. This is not to say that there are not some good writers on this blog…but the chaff contaminates these other writers by association.

    Consider this: Blogging is missionary work (or its opposite.) You choose. It’s one thing to discuss problems in the church that matter. It is quite another to nitpick supidities that don’t don’t even hit the emotional radar of even struggling saints. This sort of activity is usually the work of anti-Mormons. Now we get it from “saints” as well. Please, in your future blog sight, consider your true motives, and don’t cloak your obvious intentions in clothing of “heroic concern.” (Your pride is showing. So is your anger.)

    Have a nice day!

  4. Jonah, that made me wince.
