That is to say, women are taught that they are naturally less sexual than men—inherently lacking hedonistic desire..."

"I grew up giving a greater than normal dedication to my #Mormon #faith, but after a disheartening experience in the temple on my way home from the #mission field, I completely lost faith in #God and my religion.  Over the next decade and a half I slowly reconstructed it to where it is now."

Carson Calderwood stops by to talk about how his faith has changed over time.

"Before marriage I was a mothering woman. Even has a teenager. Younger really. I took care of anyone’s children. Single mother who needs need some help? Sure! I’ll keep your baby for a week.

I have my reasons for the distaste, reasons based on my personal values which are based on my personal experience, and I know that my...

"[Brigham], it is my church as much as it is yours" - Robert Gardner to Brigham Young
Introduction

The three Barker brothers would often engage in private e-mails  and phone calls with each other and their friends about Mormonism. The three decided it would be more fun to create a blog where all their friends and family could get  together and hammer out some of the idiosyncrasies of Mormonism. Here they hope to provide a safe, fair, and balanced space to discuss the complexities, difficulties, and beauty of their Mormon tradition.
