You have all the answers for magic, don't you?
If you stripped all the "germs" out of your body right now, you would die. Come on science guy, you know this.

<quoted text>You have to look at it from a religious perspective - just like birth defects are punishment for the sins of the parents,
recovering from life threatening diseases give people the opportunity to repent their sinful ways and Praise His Name. HIV is God's "magic bullet" against homosexuals. How could Jesus cure lepers if there was no Hansen's disease? STD's are a Divine Deterrent against promiscuity. God loves us all - He spares 1 in 10 Ebola cases, doesn't He? Plagues give Him the opportunity to demonstrate how well He restrains His wrath.
This is not how I see things so obviously your stereo typical response is invalid.

Generally, the term "germ" describes a pathogen. Come on religious guy, you know this.

<quoted text>There is no footing to support the notion that marriage began as a religious act. If you are wed by a secular Justice of the Peace or sea captain, you are married - not unioned. Are there any women bishops in the LDS? NO. If you do not actively advocate women in your "priesthood," then you do not wish for women to have high ranking jobs. Don't propose invalid statements just to support religious opinion.
So where do you believe the act of marriage originated? And for what purpose?
The priesthood isn't a job or a career. And even within the priesthood, you don't earn or advance ranks like military or a company. It isn't the same thing.

Stereotypes are never 100% valid, but it doesn't make them 100% invalid, either. Haven't you noticed the more radical (and less rational) fundamentalists' postings? Caricatures of reason.

<quoted text>Maybe not. But should they (churches) be going out of their way to disrupt the teaching of contraceptive use? That seems irresponsible to me, but yet it's happening.
If a church professes that contraceptives should not be used, then I understand why they would try to interfere. I don't agree, but I understand that they would try to defend their beliefs. I think this practice would hurt more than it helps though

<quoted text>Yes. Jesus did not create the hierarchy of the church. That was done later - by men, and for 1900 years the church has diligently connived to defame Mary as a harlot and completely dismiss the roles of women in Jesus' entourage.
Actually Jesus did set up the hierarchy of the church. Very plainly He set apart apostles from disciples, and He explained the callings within the priesthood as teachers, priests, deacons, quorum of the seventy, etc. Do you notice that all the apostles were men? Did you notice that Mary Magdelene, who was held in very high regard (some debate she was His wife) was never made an apostle?

Jesus did not demean women while doing this. He held both Mary's in high esteem, and was always respectful and helpful to women.

<quoted text>Do whut, it is though, the Church's place to teach morality, which also includes men raping women and girls, or sex for money and drugs. That is a good percentage of unwanted pregnancies now. It does not all fall on the woman or young girl. Men are just as guilty. Seems the Church lacks in teaching men and boys the same moral guidelines as they do the females. "Guys keep your hands off her till marriage" should be taught the same as "girls save yourself till marriage". It still takes two!
Absolutely agree.
It is strongly taught in my church to boys and girls. I've have to teach those lessons myself.

I just think that one's thought processes have to contort through a lot of rigmarole to accept the doctrines and dogmas that have been built up by nearly two thousand years of theologians' crafting. If one can ascribe to it without any undue brain sweat, their brains are likely pretty squishy to begin with - present company excepted, of course.
How much credence do you place in Scientology or Heaven's Gate? Same thing.

Stereotyping is dangerous all the way around. Wouldn't you agree?

Personally, I think Mary WAS an apostle and that the early church couldn't handle the truth so they manhandled it, instead. Keep up the good work?

The priesthood isn't a job or a career. And even within the priesthood, you don't earn or advance ranks like military or a company. It isn't the same thing.
To find the origins of marriage, look at continuity of family, property, tribe and political influence. Socially, those things all predate religion, unless you believe that religion is older than mankind. shrug. Not much help for that.
The concept and practice of "priesthoods" are not confined to the LDS, or even Christianity, and like any other power structure it is more often peppered with segregation and elitism than not.

this is correct, however, neither is killing a convicted murderer considered murder. Murder is taking life illegally. Abortion is not murder either.
