Bear in mind that when you as owner say, This website considers the Mormon religion as false doctrine. Period. and deny Mormons as a whole the Religion Forum privilege of “ecumenical” and “caucus” protections you will be counted among the bigots. That is how it will go over in the larger world beyond this forum.
Well, my friend, Joe Smith was an original bigot against Christianity. That’s the entire purpose of his creative works.
Welll...let's see...that may affect the mormons, less than 2% of the US population....actually, the Christian world will not really give a rap, since a hefty percentage doesn't view mormonism with the same rose-colored glasses you do....and it certainly won't affect the votes of the democrats, nor very many independents. As for the rest of the world, the mormon church is working hard to kiss the butts in Islam, so that may be a factor.
So, I think your threat that "you will be counted among the bigots. That is how it will go over in the larger world beyond this forum." is WAY overdone.
BTW, your continued comment that mormons are "denied" ecumenical threads is bogus. They can post them, or comment on them...they just don't like to be on threads where opposing views are allowed.
That threat of disapproval, of being called 'bigot', is the 20 pound sledgehammer that the left has used to beat down almost every door of decency in America, for 40 years.
From scouting to churches, the claim that one will be thought badly of by the ones trying to corrupt them and destroy them from within, is used as the hammer of enforcement and conquest.
That is how it will go over in the larger world beyond this forum.
Kid the Mormon world is not that big...
The Mormons claim 6 Million members in the US but as they carry members on their rolls until age 110, long after they are dead and many people have escaped from the “Mormon world” and since only 15% of them are card carrying temple Mormons then there are only 900,000 or less than 1 Million real Mormons in the US “Mormon world”...
Thats a small less than 1% of the US as a whole...
There are more Moslems in the US even if you did want to us that pumped up 6 Million members figure for the Mormons...
I dont think they would take kindly to being considered part of your Mormon world...
and then there are all the Christians who would readily denounce the idea of a so called “Mormon world”
So I wouldnt be concerned about “world” opinion effecting the forum too adversely...
Indeed most would yawn and say What ???
Sure you KNOW the MORMONs had these; but FAILED to follow the rules.
Too bad for them.
Oh well; I guess we'll have to live with the scorn of DU and True Blue.
