I Don’t Belong Here: The Movie

Lightmindedness

Posted November 6th, 2016

A year ago today, the LDS Church enacted a policy placing restrictions on the membership of children living in same-sex households. The year since has been one of anguish for those affected, those that love them, and the membership as a whole as they try to grapple with these messages from their leaders. Listener Jeff Burr volunteered to help us make the following video in commemoration of the policy and its effects, based on Heather’s recent minisode/song on the latest Infant General Conference.

Quote References (in order of appearance):

“…and this is about family, this is about love and especially the love of the savior.”

“…on November the fifth, the church made some changes to its handbook in relation to same sex marriage and its policy towards the children of same sex married partners.”

“…we regard same sex marriage as a particularly grievous sin.”

Tribute to a Dear Friend

Minisode

Posted February 28th, 2016

Glenn pays tribute to Kevin, his childhood friend. The guy who was in a private plane crash when he was 5 years old and lost all feeling in his legs; the guy who saw his wheelchair as a mark of his worthiness, or lack their of, and tragically took his own life at the young age of 31. Glenn was asked to speak at Kevin’s funeral back in November 2002, and recently found the audio of that speech, as well as some journal entries where he struggles with the doctrinal implications of Kevin’s death.
