Later on his trusty sidekick Squanto came to assist them ~ BUT that was after about 1/3 of them had died of disease in the winter.
I think entirely too much credit is given to the political ideas behind their organization and not enough to the plague.
This group explores our Divine right to establish Deseret. It was our religious destiny establish the Promise Land of Deseret. The diverse people of Deseret, be they Native American or Mormon, should retain the right to create a autonomous and self sufficant nation-state. Deseret as any Mormon knows means beehive and we have managed to create a social system that help and supports its community. We believe it is time that Deseret shine like the star that the Divine wanted to be. The United States has always been anti-Mormon and has made our steps in creating Deseret lame. The very name "Deseret" was never allowed to be used as a state government or regional identity. The US under Lincoln persecuted the Mormons on the grounds of polygamy. Much of this persecution may have had its origions in the Masonic hostility towards Mormonism. Deseret nation is not exclusivelly Mormon, but is open to all people in Deseret. This group encourages new members and requests that everyone new at least invite two others interested in Deseret.
What “material” is that? The stuff posted here that comes verbatim from Mormon websites available to anyone with an internet connection? Yeah, I’m sure they need FR to dig that up for them :P
1 Corinthians 7:21
Were you a slave when you were called? Don't let it trouble you--although if you can gain your freedom, do so.
I betcha one could almost see Russia from there!
Know I know what plein air means!
Amen brother...and ditto.
For the benefit of the theological illiterate here at FR, Romney's Mormon faith informs his politics. It is not irrelevant.
The Mormon faith is a convoluted form of humanism. There is no recognition of absolute truth in the Mormon faith. It is all predicated on spiritual ascension to godhood, a distinctly atavistic concept.
God is merely a higher form of human evolution in the Mormon view. And, as we should understand by now ALL humanism leads to socialism.
A google search for communism in Utah? Come on. Please post something substantive about how Mormon government leads to socialism. For example, show statistics that more people in Utah go on the dole than elsewhere, or unions have more power in Utah or something else concrete and relevant.
I have the same question for you and everyone else. How has Mormonism contributed to the growth of socialism. How has Mormonism benefited socialists or communists? I am looking for concrete answers not theory.
I fail to see the connection between a criminal organization of perverts and a voluntary arrangement by like-thinking individuals, whose activities affect only themselves. The Amish, for example, choose that lifestyle. But they don't try to force it upon others.
By irrelevant I mean that It doesn’t matter WHY he is a socialist. All that matters to me is that he is...
Be it religion, a cult, head trauma, etc... It doesn’t really matter. ALL that matters is that he wants to further enslave us to the state and collective.
Ha... lose my freedom... If I ever truly had freedom it was gone DECADES ago.
But you voted in those decades, right?
See my tagline
The rank and file have the most conservative voting habits in America, even without even filtering out those who do not attend church regularly.
By contrast, if you poll only the church attending Evangelicals, you still get around 30% of them voting Democrat. I would wager that most of that 30% shares the same visceral hatred of Mormons as the moonbats which infest this forum.
The only thing which makes voting for a RINO like Romney palatable is knowing how it is going to p*ss off these bigoted lowlifers.
Romney is a “progressive” and neither the “progressive” Democrats nor the “progressive” Republicans have the slightest regard for the Constitution.
So did the folks in Sadams Iraq, the old USSR, etc...
Not sure what your point is.
If you mean I had a hand in this. Well, maybe you have a point. The first vote I was old enough to cast was for Bush ver1.0 right after Regan. And since then I have voted for every GOP candidate they threw at me.
But that’s over. It is apparent to me now that voting for increasingly leftist DH’s in the GOP is a LOSING strategy. More than that, its a SUICIDAL strategy.
I used to think my enemy was the democrats, just because they were democrats and some nebulous stuff about being hippy idiots. My experience and knowledge has expanded and transformed over the years to understand that forced collectivism (socialism, communism, authoritarian capitalism, etc) is the enemy. WHEREVER IT EXISTS.
So what to do about it? Who to fight? Well... I guess, Like any army, we need a base of operation free form the molestation of enemy and a leadership structure free from the influence of the enemy. Once we have that we can then begin to launch an offensive against the enemy everywhere else according to an aggressive strategy that has the eventual extermination of the collectivist -isms in mind.
Well, guess what? We have yet to achieve the first F’ing step of that. We still do not have a party and party leadership free of the molestation and influence of the socialists.
Primary target = Socialists within leadership positions in the political party we need as a base of operation. Once that party is purged we can move on to phase 2.
Secondary targets = all other socialists that infest our ranks and throw grenades in our tents while we sleep.
Im making up for what part (unintentional as it may have been) I played in helping the socialists take control of the GOP. I do not intend to quit nor do I intend to compromise.
