Has anyone ever suggested that you might want to expand your life a little? Hobbies, fishing, volunteering your time for a worthy cause, you know, something constructive?

Do you go around to Lds missionaries & say, "Hey, why don't you use your weekly 'Preparation Day' to take up a hobby, go fishin', spend time on a worthy cause other than knockin' on doors that are up to 75% Christian & tellin' them they're apostates under the umbrella of 'the apostasy' & you're there to 'restore' them?"

(Would be nice if Lds got beyond the Muslim stage. Muslims go 'round callin' Christians 'infidels'; lds just publish billions of pages in their Pearl of Great Price & curricula labeling us all 'apostates' while ensuring that message gets UPS-like delivery via 60,000 missionaries)

You know the Lord sends posters like you over my way 'cause I know I always need to keep learnin'. So, lesson of the day is: "C, if you really got to know Panaxanax you'd see why the Lord loves him so much."

(I say that w/no facetiousness...'cause obviously none of us know each other too in-depth)

So, I'm always open to learnin' new lessons. Feel free to "teach away." Your barbed comments will be read by me. I don't have thin skin. (And I know I'm not going to reach godhood status)

I'd just think you'd might help your lessons a tad 'tis were the source a bit more consistent himself on those same lessons. I mean, here you are, seemin'ly preachin' & teachin' that I lighten up or be more tolerant or whatever, yet didn't you just say last Saturday on a FReeper thread? "EVERY Muslim in our military should be thrown out immediately. No exceptions." ??? [Post #33, http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2380976/posts]

Now I didn't take you out of context 'cause that was the only line of that post. Do you really believe that? I mean, I'd like to be fair & give you a chance to 'xplain. But if you do really believe that, you've dismounted any high horse you may claim to be saddlin' up upon. Might just be good if you catch the next wagon train headin' West...just be careful passin' thru Dixie parts West of St. George/Cedar City area, ya hear now?

Wow, you really do have too much spare time on your hands! I think you're just angry that you got spanked by the Moderator for twisting facts.....once again.

Yes, I did say the Muslims in the military should be thrown out.....and I stand by that statement 100%. I question those that don't share the same sentiment, given the recent terrorist event at Ft. Hood.

I have zero tolerance for gays or for those that threaten to kill us “infidels” because we don't believe in the same religion as they do. Your attacks on Mormons seems to be running parallel to that same Muslim philosophy that those who do not believe should be silenced via beheading. Are you Muslim?

I'm not preachin’ and teachin’ as you claim. This may come as a big surprise to you, but I am not a practicing Mormon. I do defend their right to believe in what they choose, just as I would defend yours.

My question to you is why do you spend your entire day condemning their every move? It just seems odd to me (and others) that you have made it your life's work to denigrate this church?

The history of the church intrigues me, as all history does. My family came from England with the Mormon converts in the mid 1840’s and suffered severe abuse from people like you only because they didn't share your religious beliefs.

My gr. gr. grandfather left his family behind to serve his newly adopted country in a time of war at the request of the U.S. President. He served after having a bounty placed on their heads by the Missouri governor. He served after having been burned out, killed and hung by supposed Christians in Nauvoo, IL.

Granted, the Mormon Battalion did not actually see action because the war ended before they had a chance. They, in fact, made the longest foot march to war in history. My grandfather gr.x2 walked 5000 miles on this trek to war and then back to Iowa to pick up his family before they migrated to SLC. Look it up, it's true. I am, and will forever be proud of having relatives that were a part in forging the settlement of the west.

Like it or not, the Mormons are here to stay and there is nothing you can do to change that, except move out of the state or get a lobotomy.

“...just be careful passin’ thru Dixie parts West of St. George/Cedar City area, ya hear now?”

Is that a threat or an invitation? Been there many times BTW.

You live in a beautiful part of this country. Get out and enjoy it and stop worrying what the Mormons are doing.

You don't need to respond to this post. I am bored beyond belief with your one trick pony act of hating Mormons.

Stay safe and healthy. Try to be happy in your remaining years.

The Rev. Dr. Charles A. McIlhenny is pastor of First Orthodox Presbyterian Church of San Francisco, California.

An actual PRESBYTERIAN wrote this??

You KNOW that they follow rules and regulations of MEN and not the BIBLE; don't you?

Our Glorious Leader And Founder said as much to his MOTHER!!

Yep, the Bible makes that clear:

KJV Matthew 13:24-31
24. Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25. But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28. He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29. But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.

We manage quite well on our own.

Why does QUOTES from things we do and say seem to upset us MORMONs so much?

Are we not supposed to shout our good works from the rooftops?

The Morons are now pro-sodomite and pro-open borders. Where is Joseph Smith when you need him to kill some heretics?
