I’m sorry; but I thought that you WANTED to learn more about MORMONism; especially in a thread titled What is “Celestial Polygamy”? [Mainstream Mormons say polygamy still occurring near Kolobian colony]
There are some that has branched off from the main stream and if that is the one you belong to maybe it is different, i am only familiar with the church in Utah and Arizona.
THAT is what makes them APOSTATE - for NOT following their own SCRIPTURES:
Replies #7 and #8
THAT is what makes them HYPOCRITs - excommunicating people FOR following their own SCRIPTURES!
“Like i said i have been around Mormons all of my life and they do not hold to polygamy, in fact they bash the known polygamists almost as much as the scarlet colored church does.”
If you had been born into the Mormon cult and raised in it you would know that while outwardly the LDS decry the FLDS and their polygamy, within the cult they support the FLDS financially and through church welfare...some Mormons regard the FLDS sects as “kooky but family” and others regard them as the one practicing the authentic Mormon faith, even if they don’t wish their austere snd even more authotitarian lifestyle for themselves.
It doesn’t matter if Mormons have been your bosom budfies for fifty years...they only tell you what they think you’re ready to know, and nothing that in the least compromises the Mormon cult. Support? Look up the Mormon doctrine they themselves refer to as “Lying for the Lord”. New members likewise are joining a religion that insists they be kept from what the true tenets of thst religion are...the “milk before meat” principle. Only a person who has been fully indoctrinated and has displayed obedience to church heirarchy, who has fully accepted that his only hope of salvation and godhood lies in the Masonic rituals and passwords given in temple ceremonies, is let into the full knowledge of what the Mormon religion entails...sealings, baptisms of the dead, marriages of the dead, who will become Gods, who will become servants/slaves of Gods (if you’re not white, guess what?), the Mormon men who will become Gods, and tbe mormon women and female spirits coerced into Mormonism beyond the grave, who form celestial harems for the Mormon Gods in the new worlds they will create and will assume the role of heavenly babymaking machines to populate new worlds with souls who will also presumably embrace Mormonism and become Gods themselves, into infinity.
And once the brainwashed subject believes all this claptrap, and the frog is truly simmering in the pot, he is informed none of this is for free. His salvation, his family being together in Heaven, and his Godhood depend on a piece of paper called the TR, the all-important Temple Recommend. Given at the discretion of his Bishop and his Stake President only if he has been a full tither (yes, for the TR they will ask for W-2’s), has paid his fast offerings (more $), has been obedient to his “callings” (free labor to the Church whenever asked for any reason...I once couldn’t find my mother for three days because her Bishop said “the Spirit of the Lord” had told him the retirees of the church had a “calling” to pick apples for a Mormon owner of an orchard), has had all the proper sealings and ceremonies and is raising his family in the Mormon path, does he get this piece of paper that essentially states no matter what you believe, your afterlife depends on the opinions of a couple of men, who decide God likes you after you’ve been sufficiently impoverished, and you’ve kissed enough Melchizedek Mormon a$$.
Now, THAT’s the Mormon Church you claim to be so knowledgeable about, I think your unquestioning approval would make you a perfect slave for them...they gave you what you wanted to hear, why don’t you give them your kids.
Half the non-Mormons out there have already been pre-programmed...when have you ever heard of a Muslim leaving his faith, who exposed the ugly tenets of his faith, who was then chastised as a liar, a hater, a bigot? Only by other Muslims...so thank you, all you protectors of this scamming, mindf*cking pseudoreligion that started with a 3rd rate fortuneteller looking for an easier way to get rich and get laid...wherever Joseph Smith lies roasting in hell, you’re his support system, so be proud.
I’m not even trying to convince people anymore. When I hear these lies and stupidity, I share the same venom they tried to put in my soul, and if you think it’s foul, consider I’m working against the source of that foulness, and you’re working for him.
One tiny little problem I propose to you: why is it, when the Catholic Church is as huge as it is, and with all the problems it has had, that googling “ex-catholic support” leads you to about fifty sites of support groups, yet with the LDS a fraction of the RCC’s size googling “exmormon support”, leads you to thousands? It’s either a conundrum, or a conspiracy, isn’t it? If it’s a conundrum to you, I invite you to seek out independent sources of information to solve it. If you automatically pronounce it a conspiracy, congratulations...you are officially Mormons. By the power vested in me by their BS priesthood, as a defunct but not defrocked Mormon I pronounce all you Mormon apologists to be Mormon members in good standing. You can send me a check for 20% of your annual gross income forthwith, stand by and I will begin to assign you duties that will prove your obedience to me, and in twenty years or so I will gladly don a chefs hat and a figleaf apron and dance the hokey-pokey that gets you into the promised land.
That’s it. Liar, bigot, give me what you want, I don’t give a damn.
