RARELY HAS THE WARNING TO GET RID OF THE BEAM IN YOUR OWN EYE IN ORDER TO SEE THE SPECK IN YOUR FRIENDS EYE BEEN AS APPLICABLE AS IT IS TO THOSE WHO TODAY MOCK MORMONISM FOR IRRATIONALITY.
We would do a lot better to judge Mormonism and, for that matter, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and the left by their fruits. And if we do, the religion of the Republican presidential candidate looks pretty good.
Full disclosure: As a Catholic, I know little about Mormonism which Mittens practices, but I know quite a bit about Islam/Sharia, which though Dear Leader may not be a practicing Muslim, he has constantly aided, abetted, defended, protected and SUPPORTED, the practitioners of this vile, eeeeevil, cult to the point of recruiting and appointing several members-supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood in his Administration who are working to DESTROY OUR MISERABLE HOUSE FROM WITHIN, and replace our Constitution with Sharia.
AND while social issues (Abortion, Gay Marriage, Amnesty, etc.) ARE important, the SURVIVAL of our Republic TRUMPS ALL .!
WHEN anyone can provide DOCUMENTED evidence that Mitts actions, deeds, and words are anywhere as dangerous and a threat to our Republic as are Obamas then maybe you can convince me to stay home ..
The LDS church is positive proof that most people do not give a rat’s rear end about theology. The church is not ABOUT theology, it functions mainly as a support group for middle class people trying to raise children, often in numbers greater than 1.8, and also as a very necessary bulwark against the power of the federal government in a part of the nation in which BLM owns 80% of the land area. In the eight year reign of terror known as the KKKlinton era, I only ever saw two groups of people ever try to stand up to the beast and face it down and that was Slobodan Milosevic and the Serbs, and the Mormons in Utah.
Try telling that to some of the FRpers who are so against Romney. They would have a fit.
I can NOT emphasize enough that ALL take the time to watch this series or at least, bookmark and when time permits, take the course.
I'm betting that those who keep disparaging Mittens and Mormons and encouraging all to sit out the Presidential elections have NOT viewed this or I doubt they would hold the opinions they continue to espouse.
About the Course: Excerpts:
"Have you ever asked yourself why, despite more than ten years of efforts involving, among other things, the loss of thousands of lives in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, well-over a trillion dollars spent, countless man-years wasted waiting in airport security lines and endless efforts to ensure that no offense is given to seemingly permanently aggrieved Muslim activists are we no closer to victory in the so-called war on terror than we were on 9/11?
Thankfully, we have been able to kill some dangerous bad guys. The sad truth of the matter is that, by almost any other measure, the prospect of victory is becoming more remote by the day. And no one seems able to explain the reason.
In an effort to provide the missing answer, on April 24, the Center for Security Policy is making available via the Internet a new, free ten-part video course called The Muslim Brotherhood in America: The Enemy Within. This course connects the proverbial dots, drawing on a wealth of publicly available data and first-hand accounts to present a picture that has, for over a decade, been obscured, denied and suppressed:
America faces in addition to the threat of violent jihad another, even more toxic danger a stealthy and pre-violent form of warfare aimed at destroying our constitutional form of democratic government and free society. The Muslim Brotherhood is the prime-mover behind this seditious campaign, which it calls civilization jihad.
Could not agree more with Prager.
Personally speaking, I find the Roman Catholic theological doctrine of “real presence” just as silly and just as irrational as the Mormons’ fondness for special underwear or their belief in Planet Kolob.
In fact, it seems to me that the Catholics come very close to endorsing a form of cannibalism. But no matter. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but silly or irrational words from RC theology don’t harm me.
Therefore, as far as I’m concerned, what it comes down to is this:
Do I love, honor and respect my Catholic brethren? You betcha. As much as is humanly possible!
Moreover, would I be extremely pleased to support a conservative POTUS candidate who happened to be RC? In a nano-second! And ditto for a conservative Mormon.
Bump... Good one.
All religions look weird from the outside is a simple way to put it.
“WHEN anyone can provide DOCUMENTED evidence that Mitts actions, deeds, and words are anywhere as dangerous and a threat to our Republic as are Obamas then maybe you can convince me to stay home ..
Until then .!!! “
That puts it in perspective. Good statement.
This post might get you zotted but it is definite that it will bring out the nutters who come with long, colorful posts and fall to encouraged sarcasm.
Thanks for being so brave. I have to read it later as I am off to ANOTHER week of my daughter’s Driver’s ed.
LDS is the ‘in’ thing ping!
Baptize your dead LOL
I think the liberals in (name your religion) are a bigger threat than (name someone else’s religion).
Very good commentary from you. That is about how I feel
So it has come to this, just as I predicted. In order to shore up the obviously recent and silly claims of Mormonism, we must attack Christianity.
Why am I not surprised?
Then why don't you start a thread about Islam since you know so much about it and leave the Mormonism discussions to those who have more knowledge in the area? Every time you try to hijack a Mormonism thread by suggesting that we must talk about Islam, svcw reminds you that if you want a thread about a topic, start it. Have you ever followed that sound advice and started a thread about the abuses of Islam? Lots of material if want to take on the task.
Wonderful job of mindreading in post #5. You might want to review the forum rules.
The basic problem with Dennis Prager's column is that Mormonism has to defend lots of the ground of traditional Christianity while defending the unique positions of Mormonism where the irrationality really kicks in. What Prager's piece does is take a broad swipe at religion in general to defend Mormonism.
BTW, I'm willing to stand before my Lord and Savior when charged with hypocrisy by Mormon apologists.
Joseph Smith or the sword! (History of the Church, Vol. 3, p. 167)
**Just a suggestion, I might serve you well to actually know about mormonism before you defend it.
I want to live in a Judeo/Christian country where the men know that before God, men and women are equal.
I am thankful and enjoy my safety in America where honorable men protect women from Sharia Law and Mormon theology.
So that which you don't know is better than that which you do? The leap of logic that would take is suicidal.
Ignorance is not a virtue.
