Let's put this to bed. We have bigger fish to fry.

Everyone please send whatever you are able to, whether it is $10, $100 or $1,000+. The DUmmies, Morons, Kos Kiddies and that crew are laughing up their sleeves. Jim may have to make this site members only or allow ads. Better for us to just help with what we can. Maybe you can donate as a memorial for a lost loved one, a servicemember who never made it home or was disabled defending our country. Perhaps you'd like to give to keep free discussion alive and to show them that we're not knuckling under. I'm sure a well thought out or prayerful meditation will lead you to see the need and how you can help. If every registered FReeper and our lurkers would each just help out with a fin or a sawbuck, or better yet a Ben Franklin, we could put this to bed and get on with the conservative cause.

I thought religion posts were supposed to be in the Religion Area?

2000 some replys ago, this was a thread about finishing up the monthly fund drive. We have since engaged in talk about other subjects; much like folks tend to do when standing around in a group shooting the breeze.

When I mozy over to a group at a party, I tend to listen to what's being discussed before giving my two cents worth.

And, if the talk is not something I wish to engage in; I'll move to a different bunch of folks.

I was told earlier this week that the Religious posts are suppose to stay in the Religious Area of Free Republic.

By whom?

Something I could care less about.

I don't like finding dog poop on the sidewalk.

If I see it; I will usually step around it.

If I still stomp in it, after detecting it; I don't have much of an excuse for complaining about it.

As usual you stick with personal attacks.

I don't think you just hate Mormons, I think you despise anyone who isn't in whatever sect or cult that you belong to.

(You REALLY should have separated these two sentences with a LOT more text between them.)

Is this Mormon bashing normal posting over there?

Any place that a MORMON has the nerve to start spouting any of their HERESY will turn in to a BASH.

Bold
ANTIs
Spotlighting

By whom?

By the Religion_Moderator which I stated in my post about an hour or so ago on this very thread.

After I got into a confrontation with Colofornian the Religion_Moderator FReepmailed me and explained how to avoid reading the Religious Threads.

I really don't care and like I told Colofornian I haven't been to Church in a month. I asked Colofornian a simple question and the response I got was a full attack on me being a Lutheran.

I'm sorry; I clearly did not pay attention to what I was reading. I was looking in the THREAD for the response.

sometimes the Mods will place in formation like this out in the open, so all folks interested can learn from it.

Well; aren't you the nicest thing!

By any chance are you a MORMON??



Questions put to Joseph Smith: "'Do you believe the Bible?' [Smith:]'If we do, we are the only people under heaven that does, for there are none of the religious sects of the day that do'. When asked 'Will everybody be damned, but Mormons'? [Smith replied] 'Yes, and a great portion of them, unless they repent, and work righteousness." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 119).
Joseph Smith: "for the teachers of religion of the different sects understood the same passages of scripture so differently as to destroy all confidence in settling the question by an appeal to the Bible" (from Pearl of Great Price 1:12). "What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.270).
 
 
 
Brigham Young stated this repeatedly: "When the light came to me I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness" (Journal of Discourses 5:73); "The Christian world, so-called, are heathens as to the knowledge of the salvation of God" (Journal of Discourses 8:171); "With a regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world" (Journal of Discourses 8:199); "And who is there that acknowledges [God's] hand? ...You may wander east, west, north, and south, and you cannot find it in any church or government on the earth, except the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.24); "Should you ask why we differ from other Christians, as they are called, it is simply because they are not Christians as the New Testament defines Christianity" (Journal of Discourses 10:230).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt proclaimed: "Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. Any person who shall be so corrupt as to receive a holy ordinance of the Gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent" (The Seer, p. 255).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt also said: "This great apostasy commenced about the close of the first century of the Christian era, and it has been waxing worse and worse from then until now" (Journal of Discourses
, vol.18, p.44) and: "But as there has been no Christian Church on the earth for a great many centuries past, until the present century, the people have lost sight of the pattern that God has given according to which the Christian Church should be established, and they have denominated a great variety of people Christian Churches, because they profess to be ...But there has been a long apostasy, during which the nations have been cursed with apostate churches in great abundance" (Journal of Discourses , 18:172).
 
 
President John Taylor stated: "Christianity...is a perfect pack of nonsense...the devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century." (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.167); "Where shall we look for the true order or authority of God? It cannot be found in any nation of Christendom." (Journal of Discourses , 10:127).
 
 
 
James Talmage said: "A self-suggesting interpretation of history indicates that there has been a great departure from the way of salvation as laid down by the Savior, a universal apostasy from the Church of Christ". (A Study of the Articles of Faith, p.182).
 
 
 
President Joseph Fielding Smith said: "Doctrines were corrupted, authority lost, and a false order of religion took the place of the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as it had been the case in former dispensations, and the people were left in spiritual darkness." (Doctrines of Salvation, p.266). "For hundreds of years the world was wrapped in a veil of spiritual darkness, until there was not one fundamental truth belonging to the place of salvation ...Joseph Smith declared that in the year 1820 the Lord revealed to him that all the 'Christian' churches were in error, teaching for commandments the doctrines of men" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, p.282).
 
 
 
More recent statements by apostle Bruce McConkie are also very clear: "Apostasy was universal...And this darkness still prevails except among those who have come to a knowledge of the restored gospel" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol 3, p.265); "Thus the signs of the times include the prevailing apostate darkness in the sects of Christendom and in the religious world in general" (The Millennial Messiah, p.403); "a perverted Christianity holds sway among the so-called Christians of apostate Christendom" (Mormon Doctrine, p.132); "virtually all the millions of apostate Christendom have abased themselves before the mythical throne of a mythical Christ whom they vainly suppose to be a spirit essence who is incorporeal uncreated, immaterial and three-in-one with the Father and Holy Spirit" (Mormon Doctrine, p.269); "Gnosticism is one of the great pagan philosophies which antedated Christ and the Christian Era and which was later commingled with pure Christianity to form the apostate religion that has prevailed in the world since the early days of that era." (Mormon Doctrine, p.316).
 
 
 
President George Q. Cannon said: "After the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, there were only two churches upon the earth. They were known respectively as the Church of the Lamb of God and Babylon. The various organizations which are called churches throughout Christendom, though differing in their creeds and organizations, have one common origin. They all belong to Babylon" (Gospel Truth, p.324).
 
 
President Wilford Woodruff stated: "the Gospel of modern Christendom shuts up the Lord, and stops all communication with Him. I want nothing to do with such a Gospel, I would rather prefer the Gospel of the dark ages, so called" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 2, p.196).

Oh and outrageous bigots are roaming free as well, I'm pretty sure Colofornian is responsible for atleast 500 - 1000 FReepers leaving as they don't like to be associated with bigots.

Have you not read the whole thread? I was attacked out of no where by three different people. Now seems like they are up to mischief which they should be ashamed of.

But Colofornian's response had nothing to do with the debate over the Religion Thread and the News / Activism area.

She responded by attacking me for being Lutheran.

Praise the Lord that he is zotted, he was never no good anyways!

He was a mean person and likely didn't plant flowers. He was
offensive in more ways than I care to list and I'm glad to see
him gone at last! He was probably a Dee-Yoo troll anyway, good riddance to him!

... the impact of her delayed decision did conservatives no favors.

All typical BS from a BS'er - a mittbot. Now Romney's low life scheme that worked according to plan is Palin's fault. LOL!! Imagine that - a mittbot speaking about conservatism/conservatives and Palin is not doing it a favor. If that isn't mittbot speech I don't know what is. It started in '08 and hasn't stopped.

Someone's devotion to Romney has reached new lows. That's the type, if they live so long, will have to read about what went down in this primary in history books - because they are too young to get it now. Kids don't know when they have been taken in, they are still in the know-it-all stage. There are exceptions, a group of high schools were here discussing it, I chimed in and they instantly got the 'chess play' that went down in this primary - while some here are stuck in the 'checker's' mentality.

What is SO obvious some don't even have a clue on.

Reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated.

Dancing in the ashes is optional. The area around the fire pit is just as good.

Just watch out for N00bs throwing tubes in there.
