Local Boy Finds Shocking Items at DI, Mother Takes Action

Local Boy Finds Shocking Items at DI, Mother Takes Action

diimage1Respectable Sugar House youth, Timmy Ross, came home Tuesday afternoon from the 2100 S. Deseret Industries with a bag full of what his mother calls, “Devil-worshipping garbage”, including a 1997 issue of Victoria’s Secret and cake pans with penis-shaped molds.

“DI used to be a place to find wholesome things to purchase and a safe environment for young boys, now it’s a breeding ground for poor choices and sexual deviancy,” his mother Mary Ross said. Mrs. Ross has created a women’s group in her neighborhood, Disbelief Society, that aims to clean up DI and rid God’s thrift store of tempting items and the option for sinful purchases.

This coming week, Disbelief Society will be petitioning the church for rights to run a daily check of every DI floor item, from clogs to 1940s Tabernacle records to old issues of National Geographic, to make sure everything is up to their standards. “I just want my children to grow up in a world where they don’t even have to think about sex,” said Bedelia Thomas, another mother on the board of Disbelief Society, “It’s better to pretend intercourse doesn’t exist. Penises and silky braziers have no place in our home and especially not our thrift stores.”

  • Some of my fondest teenage memories are going to the DI and searching for old issues of the National Geographic. You know the ones that had to do with tribes in the amazon.

    I also have sweet memories of finding a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue hidden in the sleeve of a Mormon Tabernacle Choir record and pictures from a Victoria’s Secret catalog pasted onto the pages in “The Miracle of Forgiveness”

    There also was a rumor in my ward that some lucky girl found a vibrating “you know what” at the DI so for years we got a talk about the evils of mechanical self-pleasure in a combined young-men/young-women meeting.

  • “I just want my children to grow up in a world where they don’t even have to think about sex,”; “It’s better to pretend intercourse doesn’t exist. Penises and silky braziers have no place in our home and especially not our thrift stores.”

    Really! For a religion based on eternal copulation, I find this shocking statements. While sex is one of God’s gifts to humanity, I agree that some standard of decency is appropriate.

    Don’t force your morals on to other people, young kids should know what stuff is or there gong to end up with a teenage pregnancy. Teach them to wrap there willy, if you don’t teach them the miracles of life there going to blame there parents.

  • Wow! Its no wonder kids are messed up. If you don’t teach them about sex and intimacy you can bet your ignorant ass they’ll learn it at school! Pull your head out of your staunchy ass and be a parent! Kids as young as 3rd grade are learning about sex from their peers when they should be learning about it from you! Penis’s have no place in your home, are you seriously telling the world your not teaching your soon about his own body parts?! Sadly your proud of yourself… You look like an ass to the rest of the world. Your poor husband!

  • What a pathetic argument. If you really cared about the church you wouldn’t care about the fact that all they are trying to do it make some money to make improvements in the LDS religion. Grow up and stop being so controlling. Seriously, it’s the DI, you should expect to find anything and everything that a BUSINESS can make money off of. This is one of the dumbest things I’ve seen posted on FB. Kids should learn about sex as they will no matter what one day. One of the many reasons the mormon religion is so messed up. Keep your kids in that bubble, fine. But all you’re doing is hurting them. Freaking idiotic lady.

  • Stop pushing your morals and beliefs on everyone else. The DI is where you drop items off that you dont use anymore. If you see a penis shape and your afraid your child’s mind will be ruined, then maybe you need better parenting skills. Cause your child needs to know about that kind of anatomy. Grow up and get over it, the DI is not at fault, you are.

  • If you continue not to educate your children on sex, your children will have children too young and spread disease. Just like most bishops daughters I knew growing up in salt lake. Ignorance is no way to solve any problem.

  • the more you hide it the more they want to know about it….. I don’t feel it is someone elses right to go into a thrift store or any other store and choose what they carry. maybe if you are that sure of what your kids are looking at they wouldn’t have brought it home… sex does exist and schools are where kids hear about it. ( not always correctly) so it should e taught at home and mind your own on what others want to buy

  • Man, there are a lot of gullible people out there. This is not a real article. It’s satire.

    They won a “Best of Utah” award. This is from Cityweekly:

    Best Utah Faux News
    The Beehive Bugle
    Like The Onion, The Beehive Bugle knows how to deliver the satiriffic, one-two punch of a joke in its headlines. The site digs into faux local news, featuring both political pieces like “Rep. Jason Chaffetz Legally Changes Last Name to Benghazi” as well as important features like “Area Harlot Seen Holding Hands at 7-Eleven.” Religion junkies also will be satisfied thanks to pieces like “Dead Mormons Surprised to Find Selves in Same Kingdom as Awful Mormons.” Hark the call of the Bugle—it’s news you can use when you need a laugh.”

  • HAHAHAHAHAH what a psycho religious bitch! “devil worshipping garbage” Im sure women at their bachelorette parties cook a penis cake, while drawing a pentogram on the ground and worshipping satan. Hhahaha this lady needs a reality check. Maybe step outside of. Utah for a minute. Sheesh. I feel bad for her kids.

  • A post about a twig and berries being found at the DI gets outrage and people asking, “is this satire?” But a post about church boners gets nothing. LOL!

  • The Mormon church has always believed that it is better to pretend that temptation does not exist, rather than teaching that it is out there and how to avoid it. It’s easier to shelter their 20 kids from it than it is to teach them. Who has time to teach such lessons when your family greatest 100lbs of laundry daily.

    • That is simply not true. There’s definitely the crazies in the Mormon church who do things like this. The rest of us “normal Mormons” sit back and laugh right along with the rest of you. If my son came home with a penis shaped mold, I’d laugh my head off and tell him he was in charge of dessert tonight

    • I don’t. Although it seems like there are a higher concentration of crazy over the top Mormons in Utah. I’ve lived in other states tho, and find that most Mormons who are not so close to Utah (and a good number who do live here), seem to have a much better grasp on the real world.

      Reply
      • I totally agree. There’s a higher concentrations of Mormons in Utah than anywhere else, so of course there’s going to be a higher amount of the crazies. It just seems the crazy ones give all of us a bad name

  • Seriously? Then get rid of your silk panties and bra you wear for those “special moments” with your husband and your dildo, that you clearly have shoved up your ass. Its people like you that make it so I dont want to be apart of that church that I grew up in I dont believe this shit….. she will turn around one day and be coming home to their kid telling her they or thier gf are pregnant and are going to be on 16 and pregnant….. grow up lady times have changed to prevent it you must educate, not dictate what everyone else should do!

  • If you’re not up front about sex with your kids now, they’re gonna experience the education somewhere else not of your choosing ( theater, internet, friends, locker rooms etc ?)

  • You can’t just “pretend” intercourse doesn’t exist like you said. In the world live in today, your kids and will be introduced to sex and penises starting in elementary school. If you don’t educate your kids of sex they’ll go looking for answers somewhere else line the internet and pornography. Don’t be an idiot and “pretend” these things don’t exist, instead educate your children on them like good parents! I’m an active Mormon and I completely disagree with this extreme opinion on sex.

  • Really? We live in a whole world it just runs rampant anyway and she obviously has never heard of subliminal messages. They are everywhere you look, though this world now is nothing more than a godforsaken pile of $#!*

  • Oh my wow… Because you can’t find all that crap and more at the giant store right across the street. That is so ignorant and it’s parenting like that that leads to teen pregnancy.
