This is just plain silly. Mormons are among the best family oriented folk I have every known.
Yeah, I can just imagine an eventual convo around the Cub scout fire ring on an outing...or later on a Boy Scout fire ring on an outing...
....some 'Scout asks Mr. Stokes about marriage...and, having seen a Mormon bumper sticker that reads "Families are Forever," inquires of that...(who knows? Maybe even Mr. Stokes has such a bumper sticker?)...
...and of course, Mr. Stokes, being the "best family oriented folk" he is, proceeds to confuse the hell out of any 'Scout within hearing range that he believes his marriage with Mrs. Stokes will be forever...
...and that they'll both grow up to be full-grown gods (from the "gods in embryo" -- a common Mormon leader term used to describe married temple Mormons) who will live with their family on their own planet.
[Sure. That's what kind of informal outing convos this church wants to sponsor as Mormons, who have had programs in the past labeled "every member a missionary," take the opportunity to share their unique version of the "gospel."]
Right, because six year olds ask what bumper stickers mean on campouts.

Do you not know, brothersfor I am speaking to men who know the lawthat the law has authority over a man only as long as he lives?
For example, by law a married woman is bound to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is released from the law of marriage. So then, if she marries another man while her husband is still alive, she is called an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is released from that law and is not an adulteress, even though she marries another man.

( Heck is where people, who don't believe in Gosh, think they are not going...)
