    Hillary Cheered Broadway's Book of Mormon, Condemns Innocence of MuslimsBy Jack Cashill September 17, 2012 On Thursday of last week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the video project Innocence of Muslims, the one that may or may not have provoked riots worldwide, "disgusting and reprehensible." **SNIP** Apparently, Secretary Clinton has flexible standards. The Associated Press reported soon after The Book of Mormon's opening that "[t]he show has been greeted not by protests but rhapsodic reviews and standing ovations from crowds that have included celebrities as diverse as Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, actor Jack Nicholson and composer Stephen...

    Finding racism in ridiculous places: It isn’t just for MSNBC anymore. The Huffington Post has performed a neat trick, exercising its own religious bigotry by accusing someone else of racism. The result is a breathtakingly inane article. (The crusade to re-elect Obama has spurred his media acolytes to heroic exertions, hasn’t it?) Writing in HuffPo on Sept. 9, Paul Harvey and Edward J. Blum broke incredible news: Mormon iconography commonly includes a statue of a white Jesus! And that white statue first appeared in Salt Lake City in 1966, “the middle of the Civil Rights movement.” The image, called Christus,...

    Wagon Train Descendants tell tale of 1857 massacre in Utah Taping an episode of WTJR's "Truth Outreach" with host Rocky Hulse, the four men forgot about the cameras. They didn't forget their story. A massacre in 1857 in southwest Utah claimed the lives of some of their ancestors. What came to be called the Mountain Meadows Massacre shadows each generation, but Scott Fancher said the public knows little of "one of the single most important historical incidents" in the nation's history. "Apart from the Oklahoma City bombing, this was the single largest act of domestic white-on-white violence in the history...
  • Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection

    09/09/2012 8:00:06 PM PDT · by NorthernCrunchyCon · 105 replies
    This work was originally published in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Vol. 27, No. 3, Fall 1994, pp. 117-194. The paper received considerable notice, and in 1995 the Mormon History Association recognized Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection with its annual award for the best article in Mormon studies. [snip] The one thing about which we might all agree concerning Joseph Smith is that he was not the usual sort of person. He did not approach life itself--or his religious commitment--in a usual way. Yet the character of our historical investigation of Joseph Smith and his times has...

    Mormon Democrats gather for first-ever national meeting in Charlotte during DNC Above, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who belongs to the LDS Church, speaks to the first national meeting of LDS Democrats on Tuesday in Charlotte. Reid mentioned that several presidential candidates in the United States have been Mormons, starting with Joseph Smith, the founder and first president of the LDS Church, who ran in 1844 with "a very progressive" platform.

    SALT LAKE CITY Maybe now, reporters, bloggers, outsiders and even many Mormons will accept that the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not forbid drinking cola. On Aug. 29, the LDS church posted a statement on its website saying that the church does not prohibit the use of caffeine and that the faiths health-code reference to hot drinks does not go beyond (tea and coffee). A day later, the website wording was slightly softened, saying only that the church revelation spelling out health practices does not mention the use of caffeine. The same goes for...

    The Washington Post published a story last night examining a massacre carried out by Mormons nearly 200 years ago, and examines whether or not it will affect Mitt Romney's support in the deep South. "On Sept. 11, 1857, a wagon train from this part of Arkansas met with a gruesome fate in Utah, where most of the travelers were slaughtered by a Mormon militia in an episode known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Hundreds of the victims descendants still populate these hills and commemorate the killings, which they have come to call the first 9/11. " So why is the...

    NBC’s Utah affiliate KSL-TV strikes again. The station, which is owned by the Mormon church, announced today that it won’t air the network’s new comedy series New Normal. Co-created by Ryan Murphy and Ali Adler, The New Normal stars Andrew Rannells and Justin Bartha as gay partners who are having a baby through a surrogate. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL’s parent company, Bonneville International, told local papers, including KSL sibling Deseret News. The New Normal is scheduled to air Tuesdays at 8:30 PM. Simpson...

    I expected the worst when I heard ABC and NBC were going to do in-depth examinations of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As a life long Mormon and journalist, I had gotten used to the media clouding their reporting on the LDS Church. I was pleasantly surprised at the accuracy and context with which the reporting was done. ABC's Dan Harris did a two-part series that was simply factual about the LDS Church. No frills or opinions, just the facts about the Church. He focused on the temples and showed video of the inside of a temple...

    A recent AT article predicted that the Obama campaign would play the Mormon Church card after Labor Day. It's begun early. On June 25, 2012, an American Thinker article entitled "Obama Campaign's Hole Card: Romney's Church" predicted that, through its loyal supporters in the liberal media, the Obama campaign would play Romney's affiliation with the Mormon Church against him. In part, the article read: And, as November nears, does anyone think that the two Davids -- Plouffe and Axelrod -- will hesitate to play it [the Mormon Church card] after Labor Day? Of course, they won't play it face-up, overtly....

With the selection of Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee for the office of President of the United States, a lot of attention has come to his church (and mine) - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was asked if I would write a post that detailed the church's welfare program. This post isn't meant to recruit or convert people to my church. Rather, it's to convince...

    I was in a debate with a Mormon the other day, and he made a point about the Mormons being persecuted and Joseph Smith himself being brutally martyred for his faith. He compared it to Jesus Christ. In response, I told him about the background of Smith's murder, which was far less "pure" and far more ugly and embarrassing than he was led to believe. His response was to accuse the Nauvoo Expositor, the dissident newspaper Smith had ordered destroyed that led to his arrest and eventual lynching, of inciting violence against the Mormons, and claimed Smith acted with proper...

    SAN FRANCISCO -- If the Mormon church were a business, wealthy adherents like Mitt Romney would count as its dominant revenue stream. Its investment strategy would be viewed as risk-averse. It would also likely attract corporate gadflies protesting a lack of transparency. They would call for less spending on real estate and more on charitable causes to improve membership growth -- the Mormons' return on investment. Those are a few of the conclusions that can be drawn from an analysis of the church's finances by Reuters and University of Tampa sociologist Ryan Cragun.Relying heavily on church records in countries that...

    Augusta Free Press ^ | August 10, 2012
    A social-conservative group is using Mitt Romneys Mormon beliefs and his record as Massachusetts governor to urge GOP convention delegates to Dump Romney. A memo being circulated by the Dump Romney group argues that, given the weak U.S. economy, Romney ought to be leading Democratic incumbent Barack Obama in the polls, instead of trailing by as many as nine points, as the most recent Fox News poll has the race right now. The group says Republican convention delegates are not bound by convention rules to vote for Romney, and that first-ballot abstentions could lead to the selection of a stronger...

    I live in a beautiful rural valley of 700 people in eastern Idaho and after I came to live here I found out that Utah isn't the only place that is fifty percent Mormon. As a compulsively inquisitive geo-political junkie I decided to look through the Book of Mormon so I could learn a little about the belief of my neighbors. As with any outsider looking into another's faith, I found many outlandish passages that would require faith to swallow, however, this is a characteristic that all religions share. What I have learned of my Mormon neighbors in the years...
