Lovin' that Mormon logic (and other oxymorons).
Someone who claims to be an adherent of Christianity, whatever the flavor, would do well to consider the inherent absurdity of criticizing someone else's flavor on the basis of logic.

Mormonism is another "flavor" of Christianity like arsenic is another "flavor" of chocolate syrup.

You consider Mormonism just another flavor of Christianity? How about the Branch Davidians? How about the Unification Church? How about the Aryan Nation? How about Christian Science? Just alternate flavors.
Why shouldn't logic play a part in the assessment? Why shouldn't biblical assessment be done? Our LDS friends say if the bosom burns you must not spurn. They know they are right because they know they are right.
I say, be noble and compare Joseph Smith and Bringem Young to the Bible and let the chips fall where they may. Acst 17:11.
I say that any book that is demonstrably a funerary notice but is palmed off as the writings of Abraham describing a Counsel of Gods residing nigh unto the planet Kolob should be not only rejected, but exposed.
I say a religion that makes up ordinances that give people false hope is not neutral, it is spiritually dangerous.
Proxy baptisms, celestial marriage, Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother generating spirit babies waiting mortality, second chance salvation after death... An this is just the beginning. Turning sinners black, convenient revelation lifting polygamy and opening the priesthood to blacks to avoid cultural and legal problems, chocolate rocks used to translated Reformed Egyptian golden plates into King James English....
This is clearly another flavor (another gospel). Baskin and Robins offers 31 flavors, but they don't serve toejam flavor ice cream. Just wouldn't be right.

If they didn't use reason to START believing, you ain't gonna be able to use 'reason' to make 'em change!
