    She is, after all, the Grand High Priestess of the Order of the Stirring Pot.

    Or so it's been said.

    Interesting that Kerry now claims to be an atheist, and lists his reason as:

    Having read through many texts by John W. Loftus, George H. Smith, Christopher Hitchins, Richard Dawkins, Victor J. Stenger, Sam Harris, Dan Barker, Hector Avalos, and others, I can plainly see why Christianity doesn't have a chance, biblically, logically, or spiritually.

    I know I'm resurrecting a months-old thread, but: I don't think the Mormon church has put out anything official about not participating on discussion boards. There have always been murmurings against participating on discussion boards or blogs that could be "faith-destroying," and reading literature that would be "faith-destroying," but that's nothing new.

    They're now the Interpreter Foundation. It's hard to say all of the reasons BYU gave the FARMS crowd the boot. Mostly, I think they wanted to do respectable Mormon studies and were embarrassed by some apologists' antics.

    Kevin Graham and Kerry Shirts (as Philo Sofee) are both active participants on another Mormon-themed message board if you ever want to look them up.

    Can you imagine a Christian website having that kind of warning?
    Sounds good - I might try it ....

    or, come to think of it

    Isn't that what some Churches say about the Bible?
