Faulty logic built upon a faulty premise using a gross misunderstanding or inability to comprehend the English language.

If you can show one post by “We hate Mormons” cabal that indicates or demonstrates a personal hatred of even one Mormon, please, show me.

Based on your gratuitous smears, I don’t think you know even half of what you claim to know.

Enjoy yourself...

The ones doing the promotion and most of the posting is the usually nutty Fred Phelps wanna-be "We hate Mormons" cabal.

Sheesh!

Can't you at LEAST identify us correctly?

We are the Flying Inmen: proud members of an elite group that will NOT be cowed by MORMON heresy promoters.

We accept all slurs that folks toss our direction, for flak means we are over the target.

You can ALWAYS try to kill the messenger when you cannot defend against the Message.

Does this violate what Jesus taught in Matthew 6:1-4? Or does it comply with what he taught in Matthew 5:14-16?

MORMONism (the heresy) does NOT 'comply' with New Testement teachings at all; otherwise there'd be no argument.

It was the usual Fred Phelps wannabes using it as an opportunity to trash Mormons.

And using MORMONism's own writings to do it!

What a hoot!

I’m sorry that your experience is different from mine. Having volunteered weekly at the Bishops Store House I see a different story.

**I could describe the specifics of what my group is doing, but it doesn’t belong here.**

I’m not so sure.

a. It puts a name to a the crisis.
b. Helps some to pray, feeling more connected when a name is put an effort
c. Some may be looking for a ministry to donate to, posting what various ministries are doing provides information on the various efforts that are out there.

True.
But our denomination is doing what I assume everyone else is doing. We have a structure in place to send financial help immediately.
That involves working with people already on the ground that we trust.
In the past when the time was right, we would then send in volunteers to help as needed.

The good thing about personally sending money this way is the trust issue.
I trust my denomination to use the $$ wisely.

But not everyone is fortunate enough to be in such a denomination. For instance, my denomination does not have a presence in Japan. Therefore I need to find someone who does.

Fortunatly I am familiar with the PCA’s Mission to the World and donate through them. I am posting updates from the PCA missionaries on the ground for the reasons I posted above.

"And here the Mormon church turns ethics on its head by justifying bribery and gambling as "moral."

I can found no place where this site is owned or approved of the use of the name.

Anyone can name a web site "LDS WHATEVER". This doesn't make it an LDS Church web site.

When I was an LDS Church Missionary helping people log in to LDS Church sites there were many, many calls from people who would say " I can't log in to your site"

In most case it was discovered that these sites were not LDS Church sites.

Any one can link to a LDS Church Web Site. This also doesn't make it an LDS Church Web Site.

(I can find no place where this site is discouraged to be utilized by the heavy hierarchical hand of the Mormon church)

Anyone can name a web site "LDS WHATEVER". This doesn't make it an LDS Church web site...Any one can link to a LDS Church Web Site. This also doesn't make it an LDS Church Web Site.

You just got done telling Szonian in post #207: Having volunteered weekly at the Bishops Store House I see a different story.

On post #157, click on the link there to a listing of all the Bishop Store House locations that LDS Emergency Response does biz with. If you worked at a Bishop Store House, then you know Lds members are constantly ordering resources from places like LDS Emergency Resources and delivering it there!

(You're not going to tell us that the Bishop Store House turns away these resources, are you?)

In most case it was discovered that these sites were not LDS Church sites.

So what? The Lds Church doesn't exist inside just some HQ zone in SLC coupled with wherever a temple or ward location exists!

You know very well that one of the most common FR posters repeatedly lists five unofficial Lds sites...NONE of those are LDS Church sites...yet we don't see a peep from you objecting to those posts! Why not? If you're so bound & determined to distinguish between official and unofficial Lds sites...why is it that when a Mormon Freeper cites one, no objections are raised by the likes of you! Yet you get all hot & bothered when a non-Mormon lists one!

Can we see a wee bit less two-faced inconsistency from you? If you're going to raise these objections, may I suggest that you ponder doing it evenly across the board? (And if not, may I also kindly & as gently as possible ask that you consider shutting your keyboard trap? I'm frankly getting tired of such hypocrisy where you won't treat us the way you treat a Mormon brother! Am I off-base for entreating you to behave consistently?)

Also, as I said in post #157, Lds Emergency Resources isn't some on-the-edge fringe Mormon group. The very fact that it has the wherewithall to link to about 250 Mormon groups/Web sites on its site shows that it's within THE central hub of Mormonism!

Besides, I dare you. Go ahead & start talking smack about LDS Emergency Resources ... and see how many of your fellow FREEPER Mormons start privately rebuking you via FREEPMAIL.

If I was a bettin' person, I'd wager that you won't say anything negative about Lds Emergency Resources. The closest boundary you'll get to is to just try to distinguish it from being outside the hierarchy of the Lds church!

Show me. The press release says they are checking buildings and assessing what to do next. While Christians were on the ground with in 24 hours.

Then there is this quote from lds leaders: All members are going to worry about the missionaries, and we don’t want any local Japanese people worrying about the missionaries if we can worry about them. We want them to take care of themselves and their own families as they can.”

Look at how many organizations are checking on their members.

Yea, but they don't say this, like lds do: We want them to take care of themselves and their own families as they can.

They are checking on their people AND helping Japan AND not asking anyone to pay them back.
