Arson blamed for fire that destroyed Mormon church in Mukilteo Washington
The Herald ^ | October 16, 2010 | Gale Fiege

Posted on 10/16/2010 7:37:24 PM PDT by Ripliancum

MUKILTEO — Arson is the cause of an early morning fire that destroyed a church building next door to Kamiak High School, fire and police officials said. No one was injured in the blaze.

The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s office, the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and Mukilteo Fire and Police departments concluded Saturday afternoon that the fire was started outside near the back entry of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints building at the corner of Harbour Pointe Boulevard and Chennault Beach Drive.

The two-alarm fire, first reported shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday, has left two Mormon congregations without a place to worship.

Firefighters at the nearby Mukilteo Fire Department responded within minutes, said Assistant Fire Chief Brian McMahan.

What's a bit strange there, magritte...is you seem to have no interest in mormon's accusing Christian's of arson and murder...but focus on supposed anti-mormon stuff.

Your words are on record....

Smith really wrote D&C 132 for his wife, Emma
___________________________________________________

Joey Smith was abusive to Emma..

In D&C 132 he threatened her life if she objected to his serial adultery...

He blatantly had sex atound the houser where she could catch him...

Joey had some of his whores living in her house...

He was “in your face” to Emma about his cheating on her...

Emma left him a couple of times...

He got her back nit because he was repentanant of his sexcual sins, bexause he wasnt, he thought he was entitle3d...

but because pweople would ask questions and his sham would be exposed..

Like all abusers he was more concerned about people finding out and rescuing his victim, and jailing his butt, than he was of the shame and the sin before God..

and the welfare of his victims, Emma and the exploited women..

at least 1 as young as 14, and 11 with real husbands of their own..

I don't know why this is a “surprise” PD.

As I and the others have said time and time again, this isn't about Mormons but Mormonism.

Put aside the training, rhetoric and pre-programmed responses and it will make sense and you wont be surprised that the so called “antis” defend to the death your right to be wrong with the same zeal we defend the faith, rescue the deceived, and dissuade others form choosing the false LDS path

“I told my good friend, who is a Mormon, this. He just smiled and said God would take care of him and his family. Now, I like and respect him, but I think he’s a fool on this particular point.”

He may have smiled because he has more guns than you do. ;)

You had to twist this into an Anti-Mormon propagandafest. 
 
 PD; you REALLY have to understand the HISTORY of this thread!
 
As ONE Mormon replied to ANOTHER in #6.....
 

To: Ripliancum

They could start their investigation right here at FR, based on some of the downright hateful posts here about Mormons.

The comment made in #6 is part of what I am talking about. Seriously you REALLY need to read and think before you post.

“You know...you just can’t accuse others of that...and then throw the burden of proof on the other person.”

Looks like my post drew blood, not only from you but from a couple of other “Mormon haters”. I don’t owe you squat. You need to learn to read. You’re welcome!

“How terrible it is that a handful of Christians post a handful of threads per week on FreeRepublic to counter the proselytizing efforts of the missionaries and public relations campaign of the mormon church.”

Your proselytizing should be FOR Jesus Christ not AGAINST Mormons, Catholics, Jews, et. al.

“Have YOU been reading those posts?”

Yes I have; that’s what caused me to respond.

“Every day 52,000 mormons go door-to-door all over the world and tell folks that mormonism is the ONLY true church and whatever Christian faith these people have is false. I suppose this is to be ignored, right?”

So do Jehovah’s Witnesses! Never had a Mormon tell me that my faith is false. Thinking and saying are two different things. I even dated one whose father was a deacon while I was in college. Nothing like that ever happened. Your charge is similar to those that accuse the Tea Party of being racist because one rally attendee held up an untoward sign. Specific hatred of Mormons is NOT normal.

Specifically, PROVE my "specific hatred of mormons".

I detest the mormon sect for the cult that it is and make no bones about it. Your charge of my being a race baiter is specifically a personal insult.

And, BTW, if the father of the person you dated was just a "deacon", he wasn't a worthy mormon or he would have been more than a deacon in adulthood.

My "proselytizing" against mormonism is every bit as valid as mormon proselytizing AGAINST Christianity, which began with the founder and continues to this day. Tens of thousands claiming the one and ONLY way to salvation is through membership and obedience to mormonism is as a lie told by mormons on a daily basis.

“If that’s the way you idiots think of our fellow FReepers then you can all take a freaking hike! Get the hell off of FR and stay off!!”
_______________________________________________________________________

Jim, since you lumped me into this response, I suggest you see post #8. I was actually defending the anti Mormon FReepers of this type of behavior. I think you are over generalizing in defending fellow members.

While there are many FReepers who disagree with the LDS teachings, I see no violence here on this site. There are those, out in the world that can and do us harm. I have witnessed this firsthand. I have personally seen the hand of arson perpetuated on LDS missionary apartments, cars scratched with anti Mormon slogans, etc. I do believe there are those who make sport of us in mocking our faith, but as to accusations of violence on FR... no.

Osage, methinks thou doth protest too much. No one is talking about you.
If you don't think bad crap happens against the LDS people, you are living in a shell. I grew up in the South, one of two LDS families in my school. You have no idea how bad it can be, or the type of “sport” some play at.
