The reason for moving the anti-Mormon threads to news is so the posters of such threads can get the flame they deserve. In the Religion Forum the threads are sterilized of the flame posts.

My personal problem with what you, and the Religion Moderator, are doing is singling out Mormonism for special abuse.

For instance, Mormons are not allowed to have "ecumenical" and "caucus" protections on the Religion Forum. If there are individual Mormons who misbehave they individually should be sanctioned. If others repeat the bad actions, them too. The categorical ban is wrong.

There are other religions that have been called cults such as Christian Science, Jehovah's Witnesses,Worldwide Church of God,Unity School of Christianity or Scientology that do not have to take the constant assault you allow on MormonISM.

Let me tell you the distinction between attacking Mormons or MormonISM is specious. Mormons will take this personally, and should. Only people with a grudge would crusade like this. Hate has a smell anyone can recognize. That you allow it is all the worse.

We went over this many times on Abuse Report pages over a long time. Mormons are generally peaceful and socially Conservative who don't deserve this abuse. I won't be a part of it.

And I’ve stated my reason many times why I will not stop Christians from criticizing Joe Smith and his works of fiction.

Thanks

So does this mean you are one of the mods who "resigned"?

With your bias towards mormonism, you shouldn't have been in that position to begin with.

Were you the "friendly moderator" restornu kept referring to?

Totally, I can smell you through the computer screen.

Then how do explain the almost monolithic support or the likes of Reid, Romney, Hatch and the like.

Mormonism is not socially conservative at its foundation, so either you know nothing about Mormonism or you are basing your view on Mormonism from that nice guy down the street.

The Salt Lake LDS Corporation has done a great job with its public relations, Mormonism is not what it appears to be. (Yes, I do know Mormonism by family and friends (some who stay some who have escaped)

***If a large contingent of one of these cults started pushing their wares on Free Republic, we would see the same response.

***Did Jesus have the smell of hate when he confronted the false teachers of His day, calling them ‘vipers’ and “Sons of the Devil”?

I don’t know the reasons why it is banned, but I imagine number one it would cause a lot of problems since most people do not take kindly to a religious cult being promoted . I don’t see any Scientologist Ecumenical threads around. Do you?

Whoa!

So instead of keeping the discussions on point, about the topics, relatively civil and polite in the RF, you are stating the movement of such threads into "open" forums was to "punish" those Christians who speak out against the doctrines and theology of Mormonism [which claims all of Christianity is apostate]?

Sick.

***That didn’t seem to work out so well, did it? If anything this thread has served as a filter for CINOs. They’re ‘so upset’ that this discussion was taking place and how it made FR look. And, it was JimRob who posted this thread, so do you mean to say that JimRob deserves flames?

___________________________________________

Thats because the Mormons were hiding behind that so called “protection” to attack Christianity...

Its not an “ecumenical? when the the Mormoins post articles attacking the Trinity or the fact that the LORD jesus Christ is God...

They were misusing the threads to bash Christians, Catholics and Protestants alike...

We could not defend our Biblical beliefs against the onslaught of hate and bigotry that was thrown at us by the Mormons ...

They were denying us our 1st Amendment rights..

So after being warned several times they lost their privilege...

and rightly so...

Let me tell you the distinction between attacking Mormons or MormonISM is specious. Mormons will take this personally, and should

So are you consistent here? Do you deem distinctions between...
...attacking Muslims or Islam? Since Muslims also "will take" it "personally, and should" did you favor protecting Islam on this site? (Why didn't we ever see anybody stick up for that, then, on various threads?)
...attacking homosexuals or the homosexual activist agenda? Since homosexuals also "will take" it "personally, and should" did you ever favor protecting homosexual activism on this site?

Do you likewise think that attacking the Democrats' agenda equates to your Democrat neighbors & relatives? Yes? No? Are you simply inconsistent on this?

There are other religions that have been called cults such as Christian Science, Jehovah's Witnesses,Worldwide Church of God,Unity School of Christianity or Scientology that do not have to take the constant assault you allow on MormonISM.

These other groups haven't had "regular" FR posters to engage with...to my knowledge...evidenced by the reality that we didn't have JW or Unity School of Christianity caucuses on this site. You know, that should be quite obvious to you...

Also, the Worldwide Church of God became one of the first cults to convert almost wholesale to orthodox Christianity...Why? Because Christians bothered to care about them and witness to them with the truth. I suppose you'd like to protect that same thing from happening to Mormons, eh?

Only people with a grudge would crusade like this.

There you are judging the inward motivations of complete strangers. How much do you have to "hate" someone to be "OK" with them heading to hell? Just because you don't seemingly take Biblical verses to heart -- like Jude 23: save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear... provides a reality-check on the urgency needed.

Mormons are generally peaceful and socially Conservative who don't deserve this abuse.

But apparently you're "OK" with Mormons tithing to label all Christian "professors" as "corrupt" -- all Christian creeds as an "abomination" ... and all Christians as "apostates."

Snapshot of Joseph Smith’s Slanderous Invectives vs. Christian Sects

Mormon Source

[Note: Most of these are Mormon ‘scriptures'. In fact, First three rows below are Lds 'scripture' & therefore cannot be rug-swept any more than a Jew might try to take three commandments off of the very tablets of stone Moses brought down from the mountain]
“...which of all the sects was right… must join NONE of them, for they were ALL WRONG… those professors were ALL CORRUPT…” Joseph Smith – History vv. 18-19. – Lds "scripture" Pearl of Great Price
...“which of all the sects was right…ALL their CREEDS were an ABOMINATION in his sight…they teach for doctrines the commandments of MEN…” Joseph Smith – History vv. 18-19. – Lds "scripture" Pearl of Great Price
Mormon church the only ‘Christ-sanctioned’ church on earth: “…the foundation of this [Mormon] church…the ONLY true and living church on the face of the whole earth” [Obvious ‘scorched earth’ implication: All other churches are false and dead] Lds “scripture” Doctrines & Covenants 1:30
Direct question asked of Joseph Smith: 'Will everybody be damned, but Mormons?" Answer from Lds "prophet" Joseph Smith: 'Yes, and a great portion of them, unless they repent, and work righteousness." Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 119 [Not “scripture” – but still publicly spoken by the Mormon ‘living prophet’ and published by a later Mormon ‘living prophet,’ Joseph Fielding Smith – via a publisher owned by the Mormon church – Deseret News Press, 1938]
“In 1952…the first official proselyting plan was sent to missionaries throughout the world…It included seven missionary discussions that emphasized…[four topics, one of them being]THE APOSTASY and Restoration…” [This makes it 60 years that Mormon church missionaries, now numbering 55,000, have formally emphasized in its training & door to door saturation a priority in bashing the worldwide Christian church as “apostates” (100% AWOL)] Our Heritage: A Brief History of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints p. 116, 1996

Well; if you can get any oif these aforementioned folks to POST; then I can pretty well tell you that I'll abuse them; too.
