SALT LAKE CITY Maybe now, reporters, bloggers, outsiders and even many Mormons will accept that the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not forbid drinking cola.
On Aug. 29, the LDS church posted a statement on its website saying that the church does not prohibit the use of caffeine and that the faiths health-code reference to hot drinks does not go beyond (tea and coffee).
A day later, the website wording was slightly softened, saying only that the church revelation spelling out health practices does not mention the use of caffeine.
The same goes for the churchs two-volume handbook, which LDS leaders use to guide their congregations. It says plainly that the only official interpretation of hot drinks
in the Word of Wisdom is the statement made by early church leaders that the term hot drinks means tea and coffee.

The lds-org denies that Jesus is the Creator, that everything was created THROUGH Him, BY Him and FOR Him.
They deny that Jesus created even the angels out of nothing.
They do NOT teach the truth about Jesus.
One of my fellow Platoon Leaders in my first unit was a pretty devout Mormon, and even he drank the occasional soda. I asked him about it, and he said it had been OK to do for a few years at that point. This was back in 2005.
Those silly mormons can’t make up their minds. Thousands of changes to their scriptures and now they can drink caffeine as long as it’s not hot.
Next they’ll be able to wear Hanes.
And if Romney gets in, we’ll probably have gay marriage followed by polygamy and then they can restore the mormon’s “eternal covenant” of polygamy that they so quickly abandoned just to become a state.
I am curious as to what “mark” you are refering to. Food sometimes has onr or two marks indicating it is kosher. Perhaps that is what you saw.
That’s a step in the right direction. So now you can drink Iced Tea and Ice Coffee? When they let you drink an occasional glass of wine or beer, let me know.
The Mormon Church was founded in a period of American History that was very strong in the Temperence Movement. Maine was the first dry state in 1851. The passage of the law, which prohibited the sale of all alcoholic beverages except for “medicinal, mechanical or manufacturing purposes,” quickly spread elsewhere, and by 1855 twelve states had joined Maine in total prohibition.
The Republican Party was founded by a coalition of Whigs, Anti-Slavery, No-Nothing Nativists and Temperance Movement
Remember that when there is an election for Pope or Bishop, or Pastor, or whatever, in your church. Don’t elect any Mormon.
Now, be a good boy and go out and support Mitt Romney for President because he is a damn site better than the Marxist Muslim Kenyan Keynsian liar in the Oval Office now.
By the way, I’m not a Mormon and I love caffeine - always did. A good beer too.
Bigotry isn’t funny. I am not a Mormon, but I do respect people’s (even yours) religious beliefs.
Grape Nehi futures crash...
WOW! Mormons letting their hair down. but anyway.....
New International Version (NIV)
8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
I don’t respect a religion that is constantly changing it’s scripture or rules.
I don’t respect a religion that became a religion by denigrating previous scripture saying it was full of errors and omissions like Islam and Mormons claimed about previous scripture.
I don’t respect a religion that claims to be “I’m Christian too”, but is really there to lure Christians away. And the first thing you learn is that Joseph Smith had a vision where all the Christian denominations were abominations.
The magic underwear just lends itself to ridicule. I find it funny.
What is your denomination? I will do some research on it and trash it. Thanks . Specifically , I need the name of the church.
I try to follow the teachings of Christ. Said another way, I try to be a disciple of Christ.
That’s not fair. What denomination is it? I wanna have some fun, like you.
When I was little, you could only have fish on Friday. By the time I grew up, meat was optional.
Things change. Mormons haven’t cornered the market on it.
