My illustrious blogging career has reached a certain milestone of 200 posts. I started blogging in my current incarnation sometime in the Spring of 2006. On July 16, 2006 I started a blog called “Urban Mormonism.” I had been blogging for a number of years before that under various names, and finally decided to start a group blog with some other friends in the same situation. A little less than a year later, we joined forces with the bloggers at FPR.
In some ways, 200 posts in 5 years isn’t all that many. On average, it is a little more than 3 posts a month. I have had some time to browse over what I’ve written about in the last 5 years. In some ways it is like reading your own journal. I am often surprised by what I found, sometimes impressed, and sometimes a bit embarrassed. Some of those posts are simply announcing a guest blogger or some other minor matter of business, but the overwhelming majority are substantive reflections on topics I have cared about.
I have collected a few posts that on this review remain important to me. The list is a bit long, and I honestly left out many posts, important posts with many many comments, that were also quite good, but for whatever reason didn’t speak to me as I was putting this together.
A few important reviews on issues related to homosexuality

Criticism of the Church
