KG, you are attacking their religion.




Gosh; Ma'am. We ain't attacking no one; but merely informing them that their religion is WRONG and Joseph Smith (pbuh) has CORRECTED all the error found in the KJV!

When would be a good time for us to more fully explain these facts to you and your loving family??

I condemn you, utterly and completely.

You seem to be a bit, shall we say, judgemental.

Have you considered what your actions may mean to others?

Doesn't that make YOU a bigot then???

Sometimes I wonder whose side they are really on.

Wonder no more:

Exodus 32:26, "Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him."

Looks like a whole lot of voters stayed home.

No, I may be all wrong on this but the WWII, Korean, and Vietnam era Vets and their elder family members have or are dying off. They knew America in it's Halcyon days, understood a common culture, manners, love of country, pro-America 1st, and even with the Dem's they could pull the lever for a Reagan because he understood all I mentioned and shared those values.

Now all we got is a hip-hop sugar daddy culture of what are you going to give me, where the folks I mentioned above worked for things..

We are now a culture where Beyonce and Jay-Z are kings and queens rather than a Jimmy Stewart who flew a airplane through an open hangar @ breakfast time...

We are doomed..

I was watching old episodes of Heart of the Matter last week and Shawn was asked what amazes him most about Mormons and he replied “the blindness and arrogance”.

Oh...

...how can he say that about those fine neighborly folks??


 

MORMON
ATTITUDES OF SUPERIORITY
 

  1. I’m Superior; I have a special gift of the holy Ghost -- you don’t!
  2. I’m Superior; I have God’s true priesthood power -- you don’t!
  3. I’m Superior; I can go in God’s secret Temple -- you can’t!
  4. I’m Superior; I’ve been Endowed with special Gifts and Knowledge -- you’re just normal!
  5. I’m Superior; I’ll have my family with me in heaven -- you’ll be with strangers!
  6. I’m Superior; I’m becoming a God -- you aren’t!
  7. I’m Superior; My women know their place as servants of man and yours don’t.
  8. I’m Superior; YOUR creeds are wrong because they come from man - mine comes from God (you can find each one printed in our Scriptures).
  9. I’m Superior; I don’t HAVE a creed - I’ve got 13 Articles of Faith.
10. I'm Superior; I have 4 "Bibles"-- the standard works (5 if you count the JST) -- you've only got one: in as far as it is translated correctly.
11. I’m Superior; I can lie with impunity about such things as church membership, church growth, church doctrine, church history, church influence, etc. —                           -- You can’t.
12. I’m Superior; I am right (everybody knows) when I say 'evangelical' Christians are lunatics -- 
                           -- You’re a hideous narrow-minded bigot, who is persecuting me by practicing discrimination by saying I'm not a Christian.
13. I'm Superior; I have a testimony about a prophet -- you don't.
14. I'm Superior; I have a Scripture-producing Amos 3:7 prophet -- you don't
15. I’m Superior; I have a Living Prophet who talks to god every day -- you have a dim-witted hireling of Satan who only talks to himself.
16. I'm Superior; I have my calling & election made sure -- you don't.
17. I’m Superior; I have magic underwear to protect me from the bogey man -- you don’t.
18. I’m Superior; I have secret clasps and grips to give the angel so I get admitted to the celestial kingdom -- you don’t ;so you can’t.
19. I'm Superior; I know secret handshake codes for afterlife entrances-- you don't.
20. I’m Superior; I will see Joseph Smith setting on the right hand of GOD, when I get to Mormon heaven, and he will recognize me and judge me favorably                              -- You’re on your own; when you get to wherever you’re going!
21. I’m Superior; I’m going to hie to Kolob -- you’re going to who knows where.
22. I’m Superior; I get to have a harem and act like a celestial stud for time and all eternity -- you don’t.
23. I’m Superior; I have sun stones, moon stones, sky stones, cloud stones, Saturn stones, and the evil eye of Osirus guarding my temple
                            -- You have nothing but a stupid cross.
24. I’m Superior; My church has billions in assets stashed away -- yours has taken a stupid vow of poverty.
25. I'm Superior; Last - we have the power to keep a whole race out of our priesthood if we wanted to reinsert our 148-year legacy  (we ARE still keeping an entire GENDER at bay!)
26.  I'm superior; I have the "higher law" -- everyone else "lives under the "lesser law' because I say so...(over and over).

Ma’am, the headline said, “Stayed Home”.

There are those who claim their religion teaches them to boycott politics. And they stayed home. My point was that you cannot reason with people who have such a religious idea. If you do, they consider it to be an attack on their religion.

They have turned, “make desciples of all nations” into “divorce society”. They have turned “seek justice for justice sake” into “stay under your bushel basket”.

Romney lost because, for the most part, he ran a truly pathetic campaign. Put aside the first debate and tell me, exactly where did he outshine Obama? What was his campaign about? He allowed Obama to plaster the airwaves for months with negative ads while he team reassured us that "the needle never moved". Well it is now post election and guess what? The needle never moved!!

In addition to his awful campaign, Romney was the perfect foil for Obama. He was Richie Rich, the father of ObamaCare with the personality of cardboard. Add in the fact that he wore girl jeans and you have just about all the information you need to understand his campaign. That being said, and against all of my better judgments, I did whore myself and vote for him. No signs. No donations. I didn't like him and I swore I would leave the slot blank, but at the end of the day I voted for him.

The best candidate in this very weak field was Herman Cain. What made him great for the moment was his charismatic personality. That is why I am absolutely convinced that Axelrod took him out of the equation early in the process, Herman;s own poor decisions regarding who he surrounded himself with not withstanding.

So lets stop blaming others for a loss that we can surely pin on ourselves. We have an awesome bench that will be ready to take on the 2016 challenge. Warm-ups start in 2014 when we retire Harry Reid. Time to get back to work!!

A sample allows one to make statements about probability.

My original statement was "Likely, he would have been unhappy about a Catholic candidate as well". This is based upon the pastor in question being an Obama-supporting Protestant.

If you are Mormon, answer the question anyway, please.

If I wuz a MORMON; I would NOT disagree with ANYTHING our leaders have said.

To do so would bring the Spirit of Apostacy to my door and THAT would not be good.

So let me post what a MORMON leader has said about CATHOLICS, etal:


  "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"

To many Jews and Noahides (including a few here on FR, read some of Zionist Conspirator's postings), Christianity is a cult.

I honestly don't know enough about Mormon theology to be specific. That's why I chose to exclude it from the discussion.

I was in this same situation a few years ago; and realized that many were in the boat with me; so THAT is why I include as much of their 'scripture', teachings and publications as possible in these discussions.

Information is GOOD - opinion not so good.

THE
DOCTRINE AND COVENANTS
OF THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER-DAY SAINTS
SECTION 89
 
Revelation given through Joseph Smith the Prophet, at Kirtland, Ohio, February 27, 1833. HC 1: 327–329. As a consequence of the early brethren using tobacco in their meetings, the Prophet was led to ponder upon the matter; consequently he inquired of the Lord concerning it. This revelation, known as the Word of Wisdom, was the result. The first three verses were originally written as an inspired introduction and description by the Prophet.
 
1–9, Use of wine, strong drinks, tobacco, and hot drinks proscribed; 10–17, Herbs, fruits, flesh, and grain are ordained for the use of man and of animals; 18–21, Obedience to gospel law, including the Word of Wisdom, brings temporal and spiritual blessings.
 
  1 A aWord OF Wisdom, for the benefit of the council of high priests, assembled in Kirtland, and the church, and also the saints in Zion—
  2 To be sent greeting; not by commandment or constraint, but by revelation and the aword of wisdom, showing forth the order and bwill of God in the temporal salvation of all saints in the last days—
  3 Given for a principle with apromise, adapted to the capacity of the bweak and the weakest of all csaints, who are or can be called saints.
  4 Behold, verily, thus saith the Lord unto you: In consequence of aevils and designs which do and will exist in the hearts of bconspiring men in the last days, I have cwarned you, and forewarn you, by giving unto you this word of wisdom by revelation—
  5 That inasmuch as any man adrinketh bwine or strong drink among you, behold it is not good, neither meet in the sight of your Father, only in assembling yourselves together to offer up your sacraments before him.
  6 And, behold, this should be wine, yea, apure wine of the grape of the vine, of your own make.
  7 And, again, astrong drinks are not for the belly, but for the washing of your bodies.
  8 And again, tobacco is not for the abody, neither for the belly, and is not good for man, but is an herb for bruises and all sick cattle, to be used with judgment and skill.
  9 And again, hot drinks are not for the body or belly.
  10 And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome aherbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man—
  11 Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with aprudence and bthanksgiving.
  12 Yea, aflesh also of bbeasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used csparingly;
  13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be aused, only in times of winter, or of cold, or bfamine.
  14 All agrain is ordained for the use of man and of beasts, to be the staff of life, not only for man but for the beasts of the field, and the fowls of heaven, and all wild animals that run or creep on the earth;
  15 And athese hath God made for the use of man only in times of famine and excess of hunger.
  16 All grain is good for the afood of man; as also the bfruit of the vine; that which yieldeth fruit, whether in the ground or above the ground—
  17 Nevertheless, wheat for man, and corn for the ox, and oats for the horse, and rye for the fowls and for swine, and for all beasts of the field, and barley for all useful animals, and for mild drinks, as also other grain.
  18 And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings, walking in obedience to the commandments, ashall receive bhealth in their navel and marrow to their bones;
  19 And shall afind bwisdom and great ctreasures of dknowledge, even hidden treasures;
  20 And shall arun and not be bweary, and shall walk and not faint.
  21 And I, the Lord, give unto them a promise, that the adestroying angel shall bpass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them. Amen.

The above is known as the Word of Wisdom.

It is mentioned in a yearly questionaire than MORMONs get asked by their Bishop (Romney was one once).

The following is that batch of questions:
