I think the LDS have been vastly over-simplifying that doctrine. I love him so much, but it's torture spending so much time without him. This woman is a human being, not a caricature of a TBM.
There is no freedom to think, no freedom to speak your mind, and no freedom to do anything that 'the brethren' say not to. Very true, and we're just getting started Hubby just began his intern year.

My next serious boyfriend was raised Methodist but considered himself non-denominational Christian and people would comment on that instead of his character. Take a breath, stop and think, is it worth destroying so many lives so you can step in and take the rewards after someone else does the hard work. In fact, the church is designed to help people come unto Christ, who is the only one who can change our hearts and help us overcome ourselves to come back to him. Well in my case and at this time, some of their words and advice are really hitting home and taking root because we are yet another casualty of the residency firing brigade.
