100 million endowments for the dead...

Considering the Mormon church didn't...
...even build temples for necro purposes until after 1840...
...and didn't have an "endowment house" until 1855...
...and didn't have a temple outside of Utah until late 1919...
...they've been accelerating their big-time focus on the dead!

Mormons...I always believed that when the Internet became a part of our daily lives, Mormons wouldn't be so isolated. Their numbers have declined as they see, read and experience the world outside the Book of Maroney. That is how the Mormons I knew said it. NOW it's the Book of Mormon.

I read some on Joseph Smith and Brigham Young. I ended up shaking my head. Cults are really something else, aren't they?

Jesus was called a madman, saying He was God. Lots of looney-tunes say that but they go forward and say/do looney-tune things. Jesus taught in parables and performed miracles. Raising Lazarus HAD to be the end of all miracles...until Jesus Himself rose from the dead.
