Magic Underwear & Magic Food

Mormons have some really weird beliefs. For example, many (all) Mormons believe they (males only) can take a cooking/salad oil, pour just a small drop on the crown of your head and their god will heal them of almost anything.

Mormons believe that by wearing ugly underwear bought from a specific company, their god will protect them from harm.

Mormons believe that by wearing a really weird looking costume they are taught secret ways to touch angels so after they die, the angels will let Mormons get into heaven quicker.

Mormons believe their god requires women to not wear outer clothing that covers their crotch (pants) to worship their god in a large and spacious room (chapel).

Mormons believe that a little torn piece of bread and a small sip of water that has been chanted over and then swallowed will require their god to forgive them for their sins.

Mormons believe by consuming certain foods and wearing funny looking clothes god loves them more than the rest of the humans.

It is the same with all parents. We love our children more or less depending upon how ugly their clothes are and how they consume small bits of food items.

The Mormon god must have a sense of humor watching his "SPECIAl" children called Mormons think this makes god love them the most.

Mormons believe that all these conditions make mormonism "the one and only true church in the world."

"We do not join associations of clergy or councils of churches. We keep our distance from the ecumenical movements. The restored gospel is the means by which Christians must ultimately be united."

Faith in a peaceful god is a good thing, even if wrong, half right, confused, or just plain old goofy.

There are other solicitors out there of great evil intention.

All religions have beliefs and rituals such we could all make fun of.

Liberals have their beliefs and rituals and articles of faith, such as belief in global warming, that we can make fun of also.

Talk about pride!

Just what do you think you can give/do to the ONE that created all?

All we have is breath for a short while, and even that is on loan to us.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

I am not Mormon but why do you care what they believe?

If you really want to see bazaar beliefs look at the Muslim religion.

Mormons are not bombing and killing people that do not believe their way.

One could argue that a number of religions have strange practices.

As a Catholic, I take issues with these practices and beliefs in my Church.

1) Compulsory clerical celibacy-—Nothing in the Bible mandating such a draconian policy, in fact priests and bishops in the Bible were married men.

2) The belief that Mary herself was conceived of an immaculate conception, even though no mention of this in the Bible.

3) Belieft that Mary was ALWAYS a virgin even though Jesus’s brothers and sisters are mentioned in the Bible.

4) The idea that the Pope is “infallible” is patently laughable. Popes, like the rest of us mere mortals, are sinners and do make mistakes from time to time.

I suppose we could find faults with all religions including our own from time to time.

I looked into Mormonism, and could not personally buy into their beliefs (the list you provide could be made longer).

But I do love me some Mormons for being good neighbors, good citizens, and encouraging strong families. And Marie Osmond - I’ve long had a crush on her.

Why single out Mormonism for your bash-fest? There are a lot of religions that believe some pretty strange things. If Mormons are so misguided, God will be their judge. I daresay He doesn’t need any help from you.

My absence of any adherence to an organized religion gives me unique insight into bigotry. I will never understand the necessity of one christian religion to bash the beliefs of another christian religion. Want a list of strange christian religious beliefs/practices? I can list thousands. “Let he who is without sin”......

The whole Shaker faith was a neat concept. A bit self limiting thru Darwinism, but still nice.

Quakers are sometimes a bit odd, but they built much of this nation during an important time in our industrial development.

Now if your ex wife or mother in law is a Mormon and you need to vent............just go ahead.

The difference is that he’s not “bashing” a Christian religion. He’s simply stating how Mormons and Christianity are different. (and yes, even I, a non-believer, would know that)

Who cares? They’re not the ones cutting people’s heads off, chasing Christians out of middle eastern cities, crucifying people and launching rockets into Jewish cities. If they want to have odd habits (like all religions) fine with me.

And who says they wear funny clothes? The Mormons I see are generally well dressed, well groomed and pretty good-looking. Which is one reason the gay community hates them - they’d like all those handsome blond boys on their team.

I feel the same. I grew up with a large Mormon population in our area. Socially and politically conservative, reliably patriotic and republican, which aligns with the general thrust of this Forum. So why bash their religion? They are not forcing the author of this thread to belong to it or believe in it. Freedom is about live and let live among people who will do the same.

Watch out for Lutherans as well. They do this weird thing with jello that looks awful and tastes delicious.

“If you really want to see bazaar beliefs look at the Muslim religion.”

In the heat of the Missouri “Mormon War” of 1838, Joseph Smith made the following claim - and threat,

“I will be a second Mohammed to this generation…whose motto, in treating for peace, was ‘the Alcoran [Koran] or the Sword,’ so shall it be eventually with us, ‘Joseph Smith or the Sword.’ ”[1]

It is most interesting that a self-proclaimed Christian prophet would liken himself to Mohammed, the founder of Islam. His own comparison invites us to take a closer look as well. And when we do, we find some striking—and troubling—parallels. Consider the following.

Mohammed and Joseph Smith both had humble beginnings. Neither had formal religious connections or upbringing, and both were relatively uneducated. Both founded new religions by creating their own scriptures. In fact, followers of both prophets claim these scriptures are miracles since their authors were the most simple and uneducated of men.[2]

Both prophets claim of having angel visitations, and of receiving divine revelation to restore pure religion to the earth again. Mohammed was told that both Jews and Christians had long since corrupted their scriptures and religion. In like manner, Joseph Smith was told that all of Christianity had become corrupt, and that consequently the Bible itself was no longer reliable. In both cases, this corruption required a complete restoration of both scripture and religion. Nothing which preceded either prophet could be relied upon any longer. Both prophets claim they were used of God to restore eternal truths which once existed on earth, but had been lost due to human corruption.

Both prophets created new scripture which borrowed heavily from the Bible, but with a substantially new “spin.” In his Koran, Mohammed appropriates a number of Biblical themes and characters—but he changes the complete sense of many passages, claiming to “correct” the Bible. In so doing he changes many doctrines, introducing his own in their place. In like manner, Joseph Smith created the Book of Mormon, much of which is plagiarized directly from the King James Bible. Interestingly, the Book of Mormon claims that this same Bible has been substantially corrupted and is therefore unreliable. In addition, Joseph Smith went so far as to actually create his own version of the Bible itself, the “Inspired Version,” in which he both adds and deletes significant portions of text, claiming he is “correcting” it. In so doing he also changes many doctrines, introducing his own in their place.

As a part of their new scriptural “spin,” both prophets saw themselves as prophesied in scripture, and both saw themselves as a continuation of a long line of Biblical prophets. Mohammed saw himself as a continuation of the ministry of Moses and Jesus. Joseph Smith saw himself as a successor to Enoch, Melchizedek, Joseph and Moses. Joseph Smith actually wrote himself into his own version of the Bible—by name.

Both prophets held up their own scripture as superior to the Bible. Mohammed claimed that the Koran was a perfect copy of the original which was in heaven. The Koran is therefore held to be absolutely perfect, far superior to the Bible and superceding it. In like manner, Joseph Smith also made the following claim. “I told the Brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding its precepts, than by any other book.”[3]

Despite their claim that the Bible was corrupt, both prophets admonished their followers to adhere to its teachings. An obvious contradiction, this led to selective acceptance of some portions and wholesale rejection of others. As a result, the Bible is accepted by both groups of followers only to the extent that it agrees with their prophet’s own superior revelation.

Both Mohammed and Joseph Smith taught that true salvation was to be found only in their respective religions. Those who would not accept their message were considered “infidels,” pagans or Gentiles. In so doing, both prophets became the enemy of genuine Christianity, and have led many people away from the Christ of the Bible.

Both prophets encountered fierce opposition to their new religions and had to flee from town to town because of threats on their lives. Both retaliated to this opposition by forming their own militias. Both ultimately set up their own towns as model societies.

Both Mohammed and Joseph Smith left unclear instructions about their successors. The majority of Mohammed’s followers, Sunni Muslims, believe they were to elect their new leader, whereas the minority, Shiite Muslims, believe Mohammed’s son was to be their next leader. Similarly, the majority of Joseph Smith’s followers, Mormons, believed their next prophet should have been the existing leader of their quorum of twelve apostles, whereas the minority, RLDS, believed Joseph Smith’s own son should have been their next prophet. Differences on this issue, and many others, have created substantial tension between these rival groups of each prophet.

Mohammed taught that Jesus was just another of a long line of human prophets, of which he was the last. He taught that he was superior to Christ and superceded Him. In comparison, Joseph Smith also made the following claim.

“I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him, but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.”[4]

In light of these parallels, perhaps Joseph Smith’s claim to be a second Mohammed unwittingly became his most genuine prophecy of all.

but we couldn’t “defend the faith” since we were not members of their cult..

so they lost that privilege..
