As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Mental Health Issues Continue to Plague Mormons, Especially Women

    It's probably healthy to stay away from alcohol, because it can induce a lot of problems. However, staying away from alcohol certainly doesn't seem to help many Mormons. Perhaps they have substituted alternate addictions for alcohol. This article is from the BYU website, and I think says it all. There is a serious mental health issue we see in Mormondom. I hope the Mormons will take the time to read this:

    https://universe.byu.edu/2018/02/05/mental-illness-1/

    I lived among Mormons for many years. There is "something" that pervades Mormonism, some type of "pall" that sits over the Mormon culture (if you are a Christian, and visit Utah, you can see it in the spirit realm).. And it obviously manifests as mental illness although I'd say it is clearly more of a spiritual or demonic problem than mental. There is something seriously wrong in Mormondom, and if one is a Christian, they can discern it here as well. Mormonism is a delusion, that we as Christians know. It comes under Paul's teaching, found in Ephesians 6:12: "12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Now this is not hyperbolic nonsense. It is the truth. We've seen so many times here the unnecessary lashing out, the strange paranoia, the need to blaspheme the Christian God, and we Christians know where this comes from........from those entities controlling Mormonism. It's a difficult situation. Do you intervene, or do you walk away?

    So read the article, and the next time you see a strange post here from those who oppose the Gospel of Christ, remember the facts.

      Again? You gave us an opinion piece written by an teenage student at BYU. Don’t you ever read the links you post?

        Of course they don't read the links - if they know the truth it might bother them.

          She cited statistics. You cite what? Your own "expert" opinion? She confirms what has been known for years - there are a lot of mental health problems in Utah, and especially among women. One can see why the women are the ones suffering the most when we read the posts here by all these "smart" Mormon priests. Better total celibacy, folks, than entering into a marriage with somebody who longs for polygamy.

            1. Youth in the 15-19 age group who live in states with heavy Mormon populations are at higher risk for suicide. As Knoll put it, “These are objectively small numbers, but it means that (again, controlling for other factors) youth suicides are twice as high in states with the highest levels of Mormon residents compared to states with the lowest levels of Mormon residents.” (Religion News Service)

                You didn’t do much reading on this topic, that much is obvious. The inter mountain west is known as the “suicide belt”. A couple of those states have a lot of Mormons. But what they all have in common is high altitude and low population density.

                “The belt is comprised of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming, according to a 2011 report by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). Alaska also consistently has a very high suicide rate, but its geographic isolation excludes it from the suicide belt.”

                How do you explain those areas that have a high percentage of Mormons but don’t see elevated suicide rates? And with relatively few Mormons, how do you explain Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Alaska?

                Yet another attempt to equate Utah with Mormon and this time even Utah is a stretch.

                    Prove your statement. Did Paul have mental health issues when he reproved heretics? Did James? Nope, you can't just make a statement as you have without backing it up, OC. I also think you need to research the word "complex" in a psychology book.

                      Prove? as if antiMormons PROVE anything here except that AntiMormonism is a Complex.
                      A complex is a core pattern of emotions, memories, perceptions, and wishes in the personal unconscious organized around a common theme,.
                      Did Paul have mental health issues when he reproved heretics?
                      Some people may think so.. The biblical narrative tells us he did enjoy seeing people suffer, and then he claimed to see a light and hear a voice.. did he reprove heretics? I don't recall anywhere in the NT does it say he reproves any heretics. If fact the term 'heretic' isn't a biblical term. So what constitutes a heretics is purely a subjective opinion from an imagination.. At one point of Pauls life he viewed Christians as heretics.. and went door to door persecuting them.. then he tripped on a rock and hit his head and said he saw a light.. AntiMormons IMAGINE Mormons as heretics, but there is no objective basis for this assertions.. it's just a symptom of the emotions, memories, perceptions and wishes the AntiMormons holds deep in their subconscious... i.e. a Complex.


                      Did James?
                      Same as with Paul.. although we have very little information by James.. in fact we don't even know who wrote the book of James.
