KingTiger said:I live in Utah, and as most of the world knows it is founded on the ideals of Mormonism. I have some great insights on this issue since I have a firsthand experience dealing with it. I would like to discuss what is going on with the members and my interactions. Currently there seems to be a division happening from current doctrine to fundamentalism. How can I expand and share with other people who have their beliefs set in stone with any new way of thinking without loosing my job? Would there be any interest in this topic? I have had jobs here in Utah that I would be fired from if I were to propose the idea that the story of Jesus is just a story; how one would handle a discussion like this?
A discussion like this could only take place here on the forum, osit. I would be highly cautious of proposing that the Jesus story is a myth to anyone outside of this forum.
As I said in my earlier post, my parents are strict Catholics. Currently, my mother is temporarily living with me since last February. I cannot even fathom the idea of telling my mother that Jesus is just a myth....that there is no truth to it. So it has been an interesting exercise for me in strategic enclosure and external consideration. Amazingly, my mom is considerate of me choosing not to be a Catholic anymore.
Glad you are feeling more at home here. I too look forward to any future interactions!
