ISO15693: There was a crazy old woman in Dunedin, NZ, that bore her testimony about being engaged to Elvis, and we were all invited.
CaptainScrewy: Dumb question (because I'm, y'know, dumb), but why couldn't taxpaying citizens bring a class action suit against churches who violate tax exemption rules? It seems to me that if I have to pay taxes, so do should churches. who break the rules.

Sticky Hands: treesloth: ISO15693: Just for the record, if anyone brings up anything political in an LDS church meeting, they are politely ignored, and then told off later, unless they dont get the hint, in which case they are told off publically. Except for the really really old people. We sometimes let them rant (still ignoring them) but forego the "telling-off" because, well, they are old.About the most political thing Ive heard is this election cycle is "'Im more of a Hunstman mormon than a Romney mormon"You do see plenty of Romney and Obama bumper stickers in the parking lots though.There was a little of that in sacrament meeting the last couple of Sundays, but very mild. I think the bishop politely invited them to cut that the hell out. It was all overshadowed by the organist (probably around 85 years old) deciding she just didn't like one of the songs, and so she just stopped playing and went back to her seat in the middle of the third verse. Worked for me... I don't like it, either. Old ladies rock!I can imagine this sort of thing making fast and testimony meeting much more amusing than the toothless man rambling something about how awesome scouts was back in 1934, and the fat old woman listing her health problems.
STRYPERSWINE: Going after churches now. Wow.
