By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Apr 9,2014 - Am I having sex as often as I should be? No one escapes the bedevilment of that question. In the pre-Internet age, only a determined reference librarian might have found an answer

Ask Not

Questions Posed to the LDS Church Get Conflicting Answers

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Apr 3,2014 - On April 5, members of Ordain Women will again request tickets to the LDS Priesthood session. In March, the LDS Newsroom issued a pre-emptive statement that both contradicts current church doctrine and sends a confusing message

Pickle-Ball Progress

The sport whose time has (almost) come

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Mar 19,2014 - A couple of years ago, I called the Sports Mall in Murray. “Do you have Pickle-Ball courts?” I asked. “What the hell is Pickle-Ball?” they said as they gave me the bum’s rush.

Let Her Go

Interpretations can be justified

By Scott Renshaw
POSTED // Mar 5,2014 - On Feb. 17, a Mormon grandmother went viral—and became something of a laughingstock—when she said something a lot of other people had already said. The problem, it seemed, is that she had the audacity to say that thing from a certain point of view.

Dear Mormonism

Thank you for how you changed my life enough that I could say goodbye to you

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Feb 26,2014 - How are you? It’s been a while. The Internet tells me you are doing well, building new temples, writing fancy amicus briefs and trying to figure out what to do with your women. (Hint: Try priesthood.) Anyway, I know you are very busy, but I wanted to tell you thank you.

Litter Bugs

A little trash pickup goes a long way

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Feb 19,2014 - Oscar may love trash, but I don’t. And neither does Jeff Kirschner. Actually, it is trash-as-litter that makes Kirschner and me as grouchy as Oscar. Our coping mechanism differs, however. Kirschner has created an affinity group on a website called Litterati. Mine is a low-tech cope: I pick up litter. I retrieve it from the gutter as I walk the streets of my Sugar House neighborhood two or three times a week.

Mine Eyes Have Seen

POSTED // Feb 12,2014 - My grandmother can taste the past, having heard firsthand accounts of our family’s Mormon pioneer ancestry from her elders. With sharp features and deep-set eyes, equal parts kind and blunt, she is our matriarch.

Jazz Man

25 years of the "Magical" Jazz Vespers

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Feb 5,2014 - In 1987, when Tom Goldsmith came to Salt Lake City to be the minister of the First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, he brought with him the memory of a jazz program he had attended in a New York City church a few years earlier. And in the 25 years since he started it in 1989, his version of Jazz Vespers—a “jazz alternative” to his Sunday-morning service—has developed a loyal following, most of whom are not Unitarians.

Class Act

You Can't Please Every Student

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Jan 22,2014 - A few weeks ago, I accidentally found out a few of my students really hate my class. (I discovered some comments online—I know, rookie mistake.) They hate that “we talk about religion all the time” (we just finished a unit on World Religions in Humanities), and they found the video we watched on the Parthenon “super boring.”

In the Balance

Working parents shouldn't have to choose between career and family

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Jan 8,2014 - I bring my daughter to work. She attends the on-site daycare where I teach, and I’ve been bringing her to work with me since she was 5 months old. When she was still breastfeeding, I’d eat lunch in the daycare nursery while she nursed.
