As The Telegraph reports, as with many things in Sin City, the apparently endless supply of water is an illusion. Throughout California’s desperately dry interior, those with water to spare are cashing in. If you're looking for more detailed information on when to toss those leftovers, check out our guide, The Refrigerator Rules. To outsiders there is little more fascinating about the Mormon religion than the underwear that Mormon temple initiates are expected to wear day and night. It’s hard to get a balanced sample from active Mormons, because the Garments, as I said, are sacred, and catering to the curiosity of prurient outsiders would violate a covenant sworn during the same temple ceremony in which a Mormon gets authorized to wear the Garment.
Theologically, Mormon undergarments are said to be symbols of a covenant between God and the believer. My TBM (True Believing Mormon) father was a radiologist and believed that his garmies would protect him from radiation. I cannot believe I let another grown man ask my wife and I what kind of underwear we were wearing and volunteer the information with a cheery smile.

That said, I have many friends who come from large families that are very well adjusted, educated, successful people. Sir, I really appreciate your sense of humor, tact, and good common sense that’s showing in your replies.
About a year ago I wrote a blog article comparing the Mormon doctrine of polygamy and various sexual doctrines of the evangelical, fundamentalist cult that entrapped me for years. I read a news article today about Tom Cruise seeing an advance copy of a new movie about Ron Hubbard and Scientology. As a psychologist, you probably know a lot more about this than I do, but I think there is something to the notion that religion is really just shared delusions, a psychological disorder.
So the NEXT article you will write is an article deriding and making up silly and inaccurate adjectives for the Jewish male wardrobe staple — the Yarmulia or Kippah?!??
One pattern in our world is that when religions encourage tolerance and respect for outsiders, they tend to be given slack, even when it can be easily verified that teachings are false. Perhaps the underwear issue is a compensatory exercise to cover their shame a-la-the-creation myth? The Wausau Police Department voided several citations Monday that were issued to high school students last week after a friendly game known locally as “Nerf Wars” went terribly wrong for the teens. The game, also known as Senior Shoot Out, has become somewhat of a tradition over the last three years for Wausau West High School Seniors, but is not sponsored or endorsed by the school, local media reports. The game simply involves multiple teams with four players per team, each player trying to take out opponents by shooting them with soft-tipped Nerf darts. However, when some local residents saw one group of kids in a car pull up to another group in a separate car and take aim with their Nerf guns last Tuesday night around 9:45, police received a frantic call declaring three armed and dangerous teens on the loose. Officers responded immediately and, according to the information which they had received, believed at the time that the weapons were real. However, once they arrived on the scene, officers quickly realized that the “weapons” were simply Nerf guns. Nonetheless, the six teens involved were still issued citations for disorderly conduct, but the police department later clarified in a written statement aimed at the media, that the citations were issued due to the disturbance that was caused in the neighborhood, not necessarily the use of the Nerf guns themselves. However, the district’s director of pupil services, Jeff Lindell, said that the school has dealt with the game, which “keeps evolving,” in the past. Although the students involved in last week’s incident were not going to be suspended from school, the teens were still facing athletic probation and other penalties.


Nonetheless, the principal at Wausau West High School, Jeb Steckbauer, felt the students were relieved once the citations – and the accompanying $240 fines – were dropped.

As Bloomberg reports, the California heat this year is like nothing ever seen, with records that go back to 1895 and with 70 percent of the state’s pastures rated “very poor to poor,” according to the USDA, things do not appear to be about to get better any time soon.
A package of deli meat, Chinese takeout, leftover dinner, a jar of mayonnaise -- all these items have a different shelf life in the fridge. Unfortunately those who have been fantasizing about a romp in which layers of white cotton create the perfect sense of mystery (or bondage), exMormons offer few words of encouragement. When I first got married they came in a one piece get up with a wide neck so you could step into them. I was slapped a time or two for letting them fall or drag on the floor when I did laundry as a child.
The Catholic hierarchy has an established procedure for assessing claims about weeping statues or a miracles cures, but the Mormon hierarchy largely ignores stories about the real world protective powers of the white underwear. What was even more sick is that I believed in a tyrannical God that cared about what kind of underwear I was wearing. All of a sudden the wind changed, a flame leaped out of the grill and came straight at my chest. Of course that’s not always the case, and I think parents should use discretion and wisdom in family planning.
He didn’t sleep last night, he didn’t sleep well at all,” said Scott Hansen, whose son was involved in the Nerf gun incident. If a car rolls up on you, the dudes are acting suspicious, and then make a sudden move as if pulling out a gun, yeah, someone could end up getting hurt. All that time, the underwear questions were the first ones I got from people who found out I had been Mormon.
Or incredulity: Religious leaders can tell women to wear undershirts with special symbols all the time beneath their bras and people do it?! The back had a split crotch (not the kind in kinky panties) but this huge wide sloppy split that would separate under your clothes, leaving a draft in your nether region much of the time.
The underwear have sacred symbols drawn from the Masonic Order into which Joseph Smith was initiated shortly before he proclaimed God’s desire that people wear the Garment. One story tells of a Mormon soldier during WWII who was killed by a Japanese flame thrower – but his Garment survived intact. In 1988, Mormon authorities asserted that the Garment serves as a protection “against temptation and evil.” Unfortunately, ordinary believers may take the broader protective power of their Garments seriously, sometimes with painful consequences. I looked down and saw it hit my shirt and chest, then arch away from me, back in the direction it came from. It was very liberating and for the first time in my life I began to feel sexual, not a droid without any sexuality.
Interestingly, the Garment may owe its existence to Joseph Smith wrestling with his own high libido.
Cultural pressure to marry earlier and get to the business of making babies is definitely still present, but it’s starting to lose steam.


I see some families with 8-10 kids and have to wonder if they’re not a little delusional.
Apparently, Cruise was outraged by that, but the thing is, any outsider looking at cults like the LDS and Scientology can come to no other conclusion than their entire dogmas are just made up fantasies.
I was trying to be a good kid, make loved ones happy, do what I thought was right at the time. It is meant to be used a spiritual shield (I don’t take that too literally, personally) and as a reminder of the promises we make with God in the temple.
In that sense, I don’t literally believe that Adam and Eve were the first human beings. We wanted to do everything as safe as possible for us and for the citizens in the area,” said Capt. They are novel, they are hidden, they are taboo, and they are in constant contact with genitalia. The little panel they sew into the ladies special part was so poorly designed that it would roll and twist till you felt like you were skewered by a roll of old toilet paper.
The stories go back to Joseph Smith himself, who died in a hail of bullets without his Garment on. And even though I didn’t fit the, what I perceived as the ideal, weight, shape, looks, I felt sexy and powerful. As recent research on homosexuality suggests, people who are struggling to contain or suppress their own sexuality may be particularly interested in controlling the sexuality of others. As a father, I couldn’t see how you could possibly give the individual attention and care that each child needs to that many children (to say nothing of your own sanity).
I have a solid career to support the family, and my wife is happy staying home with the kids. I know there are some people with find joy in spitting on Catholic statues and giggling at a devout Jew dressed distinctly, but I was expecting better from Americans. In that way, you may compare it to how many Christians carry a cross to remind them of Christ’s life and teachings. But in this situation, enough was done to prevent a scare with the school sending out messages, and at the end of the day no one was hurt, so there you go.
Historians are unclear on the number of women Smith actually married and the number with which he simply had sexual relationships.
But I do believe he was responsible for organizing it, or putting it into motion, even if it was over the course of billions of years. Mormon historian Hubert Bancroft described the incident in his 1890 History of Utah, “This Garment protects from disease, and even death, for the bullet of an enemy will not penetrate it.
The list of his wives, first published in the late 19th century, and still debated, includes 27 names. The garments serve as a personal reminder to the person wearing them, and aren’t meant to show off their devotion to God to others.
The Mormon church is engaged in a massive PR campaign that focuses on some aspects of the religion (like the fact that people with brown skin are now allowed to become temple initiates) but not others (like the fact that they are required to wear the Garment). Was the design of the Garment (then a full body long-sleeved button-up affair) the product of a divine revelation, Smith’s sexual tastes, or his effort to suppress desire?
