Skip to comments.New Mormon anti-freeper site and campaign to bankrupt FR
Posted on 03/29/2009 2:35:03 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
I understand there is a new anti-freeper site started by disgruntled former and present Mormon FReepers and it is their intention of bankrupting FR during the coming Freepathon by withholding their donations and disrupting our activities. Well, all I can say is, if they feel that badly against FR, by all means they should withhold their donations and drop out of FR. But it they attempt to disrupt our operations I will guarantee they will no longer be members of FR. If that is their wish, so be it.
I'm not going to try to defend FR from their claims of religious persecution, but I will say that Mormons have and always have had free reign to post their threads on FR just as all other religious groups have enjoyed. Free Republic defends the right to freedom of religion and has always welcomed religious discussion and always will. And Mormons have always been welcome here. I have absolutely nothing against Mormons.
If you are one who has left or is leaving, I wish you well, but disruption of FR is not welcome and will not be tolerated.
And this is not the first time such activity has been attempted by groups of disgruntled former FReepers. Good luck with that. There is always some group that feels FR should be bent to their way of thinking and end up saying my way or the highway. Well, I don't know about you, but I'm not changing so I guess it's the highway. Is it Feb 8 yet?
If only Romney were a black lesbian woman, he would be a lock. LOL
How many anti-FReeper sites are there now?
That's kind of flattering in a way...
Can we get the mccainiacks to leave as well?
I always felt Mormons took a lot of heat here, BUT they got a fair, honest and OPEN forum to state their views and beliefs.
In fact it was more than OPEN. Mormons, among other groups like Catholics, can and did post in protected forums (devotional/caucus)where their theology could go unchallenged and unrebutted. That IMHO is bending over backwards and a credit to FR.
This is astonishing stuff.
I have been reading this post for a few minutes now and frankly, I am very surprised to learn of this.
I certainly do not see eye to eye with LDS, but on political issues I have long thought that most have their heads screwed on right.
Yepper, and the h*** with them.
Guess I will double my contribution...however I have no axe to grind with Mormons. The threat posed by Obama, Democrats, and MODERATE republicans gives us enough to worry about, and fight against.
What is going on? JR has never prevented you folks from posting anything and the religion moderator is just the best. So what’s up?
A pledge is a legally-recognized debt.
Sell them to debt collectors.
Can we start by ZOTING those stupid mormon threads sixty times a day, seven days a week attempting to brainwash us into believing it is a real religion?
Crazy Jim...just crazy.
Those that feel that way should go take their frustrations out over at the DailyKOS.
How does hurting this excellent grassroots platform help in their cause? You are only enabling and empowering the very groups that despise you - the Mormon.
Maybe before you cast your stones at an American Patriot - Jim Robinson, you should spend time reflecting on what it really means to be a Mormon. Apostle Paul had something to say about this:
“Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lords servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.”
We need to stand together at this time where our very existence in under the largest assault in history of our country.
We need to focus solely on the core principles that will keep us together instead of focusing on particulars that would otherwise drive us apart.
Do not underestimate our enemy. Remember the person that was least likely to ever be elected President of our great Republic has been put in office.
We need to set aside our differences and focus on preserving our Constitution and Republic through the tenacity FREEPER’s have.
Let’s focus our energies on turning our country around and ending the era of Political Correctness once and for all.
At this time in history we all need to rise above the fray and make that continued commitment to see this through.
Without grassroots efforts like Free Republic we don’t stand a chance!
It could be well be someone wanting to cause friction between FR and Mormons.
I have family members who are Mormons and I haven’t seen anything on FR to offend the Mormon faith. If I’ve missed it I would like for someone to e-mail the links to me where it took place.
These are no doubt the same Palin bashing pro-Romney posters investing out site.
