Sorry ampu, when in post 123 you talk of “how offensive the mormonism practice of baptizing people of other faiths is” then switch to saying “Never said I was offended personally” you lose all credibility. You can’t embrace the idea that is is offensive in one post, then deny being offended in another post and hang on to your integrity.

“Would you like me to also have an Unsealing Ceremony in your wife’s name this week? We have a BOGO SALE! Buy one ceremony and get the second FREE!”

And so we go back to square one.

As I said before, go for it, it wouldn’t bother me in the least, even if you really did know my name and her name.

Again, don’t be half-hearted about it. If you really believe it, put some sacrifice into it. I doubt you will, I doubt you’ll even invest 5 minutes to do some cheapo imitation made-up-on-fly ceremony because you don’t really believe it has any real purpose or function. Of course it’s easy enough to claim you did it, so if you really want me to believe you actually did it, and put some effort into it, post a video of you doing it on youtube.

Denying a couple can be sealed and creating an un-sealing ceremony to un-seal a couple you don’t believe are really sealed in the first place take a special kind of double-think that not many people can achieve (thank goodness). You don’t believe in it, you just want to try and put the shoe on the other foot, and don’t like it when we say it fits just fine with us.

“...when in post 123 you talk of “how offensive the mormonism practice of baptizing people of other faiths is” then switch to saying “Never said I was offended personally” you lose all credibility.”

No problem. As a mormon, who by definition views all non-mormons
as apostates, I doubt you ever viewed me or others with any
credibility at all anyway.

Never the less, it is very offensive to those Catholics and
Jews - and I’m neither.

“As I said before, go for it, it wouldn’t bother me in the least, even if you really did know my name and her name.”

Since you continue to write about this, I suspect it does
bother you... :-) or you wouldn’t keep writing to tell me
it doesn’t bother you.

“Of course it’s easy enough to claim you did it, so if you really want me to believe you actually did it, and put some effort into it, post a video of you doing it on youtube.’

I can imagine that if someone took time to make a video
for YouTube, showing an Unsealing Ceremony, it would be
widely viewed and copied by tens of thousands or hundreds
of thousands of mormons who left the cult and became
Christians! For them, it would ceremonialize their freedom
from oppression, legalism and bondage.

Someone should do this for the benefit of the huge ex-mormon
population. Really, it should be an ex-mormon, for authenticity
sake. Color Country, here’s a great ministry for you!

Since it would be widely watched by mormons (those still
trapped in the cult), it would also serve another great
purpose.

CC, what do you think? I think Grig is really onto a great
idea.

“You don’t believe in it, you just want to try and put the shoe on the other foot, and don’t like it when we say it fits just fine with us.”

No doubt it fits you perfectly.

ampu
