Posterous is in the process of shutting down, so I’ve moved my site over to WordPress. I’ve imported the articles from the main site, and over time I’ll review the blog entries and repost the ones I consider most important. If any of you readers remember a blog post that you’d like to see back on the site, feel free to let me know.
One of the important entries which was posted on my old blog was an old essay from 2011 on Mormon Pacifism. While I don’t necessarily stand by every detail in the essay today, the general concepts are good, and I think it’s a decent essay from someone just beginning to explore the concept of pacifism within the framework of Mormonism. Additionally, even if my views have evolved (I would hope to be able to say, “matured”) somewhat, it still is a pillar of this site, and a good introduction to the philosophy behind the religion-themed pacifist essays here. The link below will allow you to download the essay.
