In other words, the LDS church opposes gay marriage. Thought I was right. Thanks for the confirmation.
#1...go back to your post #30...where on earth is the phrase "gay marriage" there?
You said "promoting homosexuality"...so my response was about "promoting homosexuality"
Don't get all liberal revisionist on us and think you can revise words & phrases re: past posts...So, no, you weren't "right"
#2...So let's deal with this post...where you do manage to have the words "gay marriage" emerge from your keyboard this time around...
The Lds church opposes same-sex marriage in 2012. What makes you assume that will still be the case in 2013?
Is not the Mormon god "shifty?"
Did he not...
...Condemn marriages beyond one-woman, one-man in the 1830 Book of Mormon?
...Only to have Joseph Smith to start "practicing" polygamy with his 17 yo live-in maid, Fanny, in 1831?
...Only to then CHANGE HIS MIND & push polygamy underground in 1890?
...Only to then have his "general authority" Lds servants "solemnize" a couple hundred more plural arrangements between 1890-1910? (See B. Carmon Hardy's book A Solemn Covenant)
...Only to then root it out almost completely by the 1930s?
...Only to then "inspire" Lds apostle Bruce McConkie in his book "Mormon Doctrine" to say that polygamy would be re-instituted when the Mormon jesus returned?
[And don't Lds believe in eternal polygamy -- even if they now eschew earthly polygamy]
Boy! Talk about shifty ambivalence!
IF THE MORMON GOD CAN FLIP-FLOP AND BANDY ABOUT THE INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE as frequently as that over a 180-year period, then Mitt is just a chip off of the old block!
And, btw, it doesn't end there on social relationships.
Several Mormon sacred books have racist comments about skin color, and blacks were kept out of the Mormon priesthood til 1978. At that point, THE MORMON GOD CHANGED HIS MIND about the priesthood, yet only changed his mind about one of those racist verses in their sacred books -- one in the Book of Mormon -- where he had his "servants" rewrite a word supposedly written in a "gold plate" and then interpreted by the "power of God." The Mormon god told Lds leaders to change the phrase "white and delightsome" to "pure and delightsome."
Not all Mormons oppose it (I know many who see it as a gateway to polygamy) and the LDS church has been fighting for ‘gay rights’ in Salt Lake City.
