    I think that birds of a feather flock together people usually keep company with those of similar ethnic groups. religion. weight. etc I am friendly and respectful to everyone and am inclusive but most people do not do this. My husband and i do not smoke or drink or do drugs and are usually dropped when people find this out as they prefer the company of those with the same habits. A lot of things that are considered discrimination are simply inbred choices and preferences It would be nice if people were more inclusive towards others but I personally think its a lost cause. I am accepting of differences but others do not do the same for me. Most relationships where people are wildly different do not last as they are not equally yoked to use a biblical term.

    FYI (and forgive me if you already know this) “loud laughter” is no longer a “thing” in the temple ceremony.

    Another epic interview — very enlightening and thought provoking.

    If these people are not happy at byu then why are they still there. I for one am tired of hearing about it!

    Fantastic episode! I learned so much, and I’m so impressed by Ms. Weaver and her insights. Thank you for taking the time to tell us of your experience. It’s the LDS Church’s loss that you moved on. And I agree, the LDS Church is already hemorrhaging membership in the US, and will continue to do so without major changes that they are unwilling or unable to make. Best of luck to you in your future ventures.
