Repose to Thomas S Monson's come back speech

"LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson invited "the less-active, the offended, the critical, the transgressor" Sunday to come back and "feast at the table of the Lord and taste again the sweet and satisfying fruits of fellowship with the Saints." "

Tommy Boy Talk is cheap, you do not really mean what  you said. If you did you would extend an olive branch with those words ,do something to back them up.
For Example
 Be honest about the church's history.    
   Stop excommunicating and "disfellowshipping" scholars who present you with mountains of scientific and historical evidence that Joseph Smith was an imaginative fraud and the BoM is a hoax.

Repeal the  132nd section of the D&C and admit polygamy was a mistake.
Apologies for the slander and mistreatment of Blacks, Gays and Women by the church.
Welcome back into full fellowship excommicationed members whose only sin was to criticize the church or wrote about the history of the church. Allow criticism of church leaders , be human.


If you are unwilling to do anything to show that the church has changed your words ring hallow and their is no reason for us to believe them. You weren't really speaking  to those of us who left anyway were you, just saying words to flock to calm them about all the members who have the  church.

Article sates: "President Thomas S. Monson invited "the less-active, the offended, the critical, the transgressor" Sunday to come back and "feast at the table of the Lord and taste again the sweet and satisfying fruits of fellowship with the Saints."
   
   Wow, instead of using negative terms like "the offended, the critical, the transgressor", how about using more accurate terms to describe people who left like "intellectual, vocal, critical thinker, and spiritually progressive"? Oh yeah I forgot, many of these people didn't leave...they were kicked out for simply voicing their views and/or questioning historical issues within the church.
   
   Instead of having a "feast at the table of the Lord and taste again the sweet and satisfying fruits of fellowship with the Saints", I feel, it would have been much more of an accurate description to state "stay away from the table of the Mormon Church and it's judgmental members. Don't keep eating the B***S*** they try to jam down your throat at every turn."
   
   Monson's speech is just further evidence, the Mormon hierarchy and many devout members "just don't get it." As much as I love my friends and family who are LDS, I feel every wardhouse is simply a "non-thinking ghetto

Kolob Kool-Aid

The Mormons have a problem. They want to become the church with the largest number of members. Since they believe that all humans had a preexistence in spirit form on a far-off (and far-out) planet they call Kolob, they are obsessed with finding the "fastest and most pleasurable ways" of transforming those Kolob "spirit" beings into human babies. Yes, the "fastest and most pleasurable ways" of creating more babies - that is, in addition to the tremendous help obtained from raunchy films, raunchy music, and raunchy dancing. Any advice you can give may help the LDS church to greatly increase its membership!

HERE HERE!!

How many LDS members would admit that they are just like us...they question it all. They know something's fishy. They know they overlook little hints, clues and bare facts, even, that proves to them that they fell for a lie. I dunno. Back when we were kids, the missionaries told us all we were "special." So special that the Lord sent them to find us. It's one of their tricks, you see. Everybody needs to feel important. Appeal to the human pride. Get's em every time.

The sad irony is, THEY call US morons. Look at the millions who fall for the lies. They think they have joined a church. It's always been a corporation.
