    Are your religiously affiliated, and if so, what is your current standing?​

    Baptized LDS, and served a mission. I always had my doubts and concerns about the LDS church. Most of my issues revolved around church history and doctrine. I finally called it quits for good during prop 8. I am not bitter and I don't hate the church because it helped make me who I am today. I just don't believe it anymore. Currently I am unaffiliated.

    I didn't really think too clearly about that. I was mostly trying to use the template while on my phone and I am not very good at doing a copy and paste on it. Replying was an easier option. I will move it to its own post but will leave original here for JIC to delete or for all to see my mistake.

    I don't feel the need to start my own thread, so I will just use this one. After all, This thread is the one thread to rule them all...

    How did you pick your Moniker?

    The Whisky Priest is one of my favorite literary characters from Graham Greene's The Power and the Glory. I love literature, although I must confess that I have not read as much as I should have recently.

    How did you discover UB5?

    I read about it on JazzFanz.com. I posted there under the same name for quite awhile, and I am excited to find a Utes message board that is readable.

    How many states/countries have you lived in?

    Louisiana, Utah, California, Oregon, Germany, and I will be moving to Italy for about five years next month (Graduate Studies).

    What are your Sports Loyalties?

    Anything and Everything Utah Utes and Notre Dame Fighting Irish. I also bleed purple (Weber State) during basketball season. I was also a Utah Jazz season ticket holder for two years. Also, I have to throw Bayern Munchen on here <---- We are dominating right now.

    What was the moment that cemented your Ute Fanhood?

    I have always been a Utes fan, however, for a long time I put them on the back burner behind pro sports. It has only been recently (about five years or so) that I have began to appreciate college football and basketball more than their professional counterparts. I am not oblivious to the fact that professional sports has the superior athletes. However, it just seems to me that College athletes are more focused on the front of the jersey rather than the back.

    What do you currently do for a living?

    I am a Catholic Seminarian for the Diocese of Salt Lake City.

    Are your religiously affiliated, and if so, what is your current standing?​

    I am a Roman Catholic, and I am currently studying to become a Catholic Priest.

    I love the idea that soon this board will have a member posting from Rome, Italy.

    Whiskey Priest, you ought to visit the Believer Thread. We could use a Catholic seminarian over there. It's pretty Mormon right now. (Nothing wrong with that, but this is a U. of U. board, doggonit! We prize diversity!)

    I'm a German, so I still prefer beer over hard liquor. However, I do enjoy Sailor Jerry's Rum, Asbach (brandy), and of course scotch whisky. I should mention that I always attempt to drink in moderation, and I never drink and drive.


    One thing that is funny is that my favorite Utah beer is the "Provo Girl" stuff, just a regular ole pilsner.

    I glanced at it... and I felt like I was looking into the inner workings of the LDS General Conference . I'm sure I'll make some contribution to that thread, as well as "The Institute of Religion" subforum. However, the primary reason I joined this forum is to attempt to satisfy my Utes fix during my theological studies in Rome.


    Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome. I'm loving this forum so far.

    What? You come to a sports message board to talk about...sports???

    If you get the time and have any interest, I'd love to see you contribute there. It's for believers of any faith. We Mo's have just been too loud in the early going.

    That sounds like a great experience. What part of Italy are you going to?
