BYU confessions

Recommended Posts

A facebook page where BYU students can anonymous confess their secrets. Some of them are laughably mundane, other ones are really concerning.

facebook.com/ByuConfessions?fref=ts

(I'm breaking the link just in case)

Intereseting... I wonder if the media will get a wind of this. I wonder if BYU will try to hush the facebook page up? God, that's where Stephanie Meyer graduated. If we have freedom of speech in America, how come we're not free to critique religious organizations? Why do they get a free pass?

Wow! I pretty much believe the ones about drinking and sex... but I'm not too sure about the goat. :lol: :?

Lots of colleges/universities are setting up pages like the on BYU has set up. The Catholic University here has one (I'm FB friends with a nontraditional student and she subscribed so it shows up in her feed if she comments) and the stuff that's on there most definitely isn't in line with the teachings of the Catholic Church, but they don't take it down. The only posts they will not allow are ones that are rude comments about others or put other people down.

OMG these are seriously uninteresting, dull confessions. If these are the things that they need to "confess" then I wonder how they would survive at a liberal-arts college. Also, the commenters sound like petulant high schoolers and not someone performing at an collegiate level.

Judging from some of the essays I've read from other undergrad students (from U of Toronto, which is hard to get into, top-ranked and very hard-marking), it is collegiate level. No one knows how to write anymore - even if I have no thesis or argument whatsoever, I can get excellent grades just by having perfect grammar and a well-practiced style, because for the most part none of the other fourth-years have that. These are smart kids, this is a good school, and these people just cannot write. Are you scared for the future? I'm scared for the future.

It's facebook though. It's not like we're looking at their term papers.

Why am I not able to see it? I cut and paste the link from the op, but fb just goes to my home feed.

I can't help but to laugh, i have an ex boyfriend who is Mormon and his sister and her boyfriend did get kicked out of BYU for having sex. Her roommate came back from class and found them in bed together. The real crazy part of it all, a couple weeks later, i was over there house and his parents were stuffing envelopes with there yearly Christmas newsletter. In the letter it mentioned, the reason she left there after one semester of school was extreme homesickness and it would be more suitable for her to go to a local college.

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I have a friend with untreated autism and ADHD. I've tried so fucking hard to help. He refuses. It's a mess. I'm really really tired.

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
