"For the benefit of non-Mormons, Amalickiah was a Nephite who dissented to the Lamanites around BC 47. He poisoned the Lamanite king, married his widow, then launched an eight-year war of attrition against the Nephites in which at its height, the Lamanites took control of one-half of the Nephite homelands. The Nephites finally defeated him, but it turned out to be the second most destructive war in Nephite history. More about Amalickiah at the following link:"

lmao...do you know how crazy this sounds?

As for the church, I grew up in it, married a returned missionary in the temple. The temple is one of the creepiest places on earth. The first thing that happened was they told me to take all my clothes off and an old lady rubbed me down with oil... and that wasn't even the worst of what happened! This 'church' is a cult. It encourages its members to blindly follow authority. If you go to a mormon church, check out the children's sunday school classes. You will find the children chanting, "Follow the Prophet, follow the prophet, follow the prophet...." over and over. It's a cult people. You can call it a church or a tomatoe or a club...but it's a cult!

These young people are following a man, Joseph Smith, who married a minimum of 34 women. Two of them were 14 years old (in an era when most women married at about age 20) and most of them were on the young side. Eleven were already married to other men. One of them (Fanny Alger) was a teenage ward living in his household under his protection. Lest anyone mistakenly think that these were solely "spiritual marriages," consider the words of Chauncey Webb --“Emma was furious, and drove the girl,[Fanny Alger] who was unable to conceal the consequences of her celestial relation with the prophet, out of her house”.

http://wivesofjosephsmith.org/

The Mormon church's own geneology site acknowledges most, but not all of these marriages.

Joseph Smith ordered the destruction of the printing press of the newspaper (The Nauvoo Expositor) that exposed his polygamous marriages. The newspaper shielded the women's names, but neighbors were easily able to recognize those poor souls who had been taken in by Joseph's scam. In destroying the printing press, Joseph not only took away freedom of the press (to expose the TRUTH) but he also destroyed someone's livelihood.

In jail for this crime, along with an associate and two visitors, sipping wine, and with two smuggled guns in his position, Joseph took on an angry mob that finally had enough of him and his shenanigans.

A martyr for his beliefs? I think not.

Conman, liar, thief and pedophile would be more accurate.

And what I have mentioned is only the tip of the iceberg.

The Mormon church is no more than a "house" built on sand...

The reason exmormons can't leave the moron cult alone. The moron cult cons people out of substancial amounts of money(tithing). Guess what? People get bitter when they find out they have been conned out of a lot of money. If the moron cult would give the money back....

Never mind, never will happen. Cults don't refund.

As a former Mormon, I can assure you this so-called "article" was a press release written by Mormons and then given to the newspaper, which simply ran it as "news". I know this is true because I previously wrote and released similar statements to local news outlets on behalf of the LDS Church. I did this for my local Ward, and also did it when I served as an LDS Missionary. It is simply propaganda which the newspaper then runs as a space-filler.

I'm an active Mormon, but this is obviously a fluff piece. Don't know who pushed it. But the inside scoop is that the my Church is losing Young Single's at an alarming rate.

I love seeing pieces like this and the comments that follow. If you disagree and use logical thinking (not CIRCULAR thinking as is so common in Mormonism), then you are "hater". If you leave, you must have been "offended" or committed some sin, or "wimped out". It can't possibly be that the doctrine is false and full of holes. All you have to do to find this, is study the "church's" own history. Journal of Discourses and History of the Church.

Mormons beleive in "milk before the meat". They say this is so you can learn the basics before you are ready for the more "deep" doctrine. What it really means, is show you the happy "healthy" normal mainstream beleifs...before they teach you about celestial marriage, heavenly mother (yes they beleive God was/is married), that you can become a god (little g) and rule your own world, have to wear garments (just google lds temple garments) for the rest of your life day and night under your clothing, give 10% of your income for the priveledge of going to the temple which is the same thing over and over for the rest of your life (except when the prophets feel the need to CHANGE it). If you want to know what this church is REALLY about, do an ounce of research. They tell you not to read "anti" sites. So, since when is a site that provides counter information anti? Since when is researching all sides of a topic evil? If it really is the truth, it will stand up to the test....

Trust me, there are us nevermos who are indeed wise to the "meat teachings" of The Church of Joseph's Myth of Latter-Day Magic Underwear.

These Mormons are anti -American self rightous retards. They are the biggest cult in the world. Anyone who associates with them has to become one of them or be on their shit list. And yes, they actually have a list of names that they will initiate bad things to. They are putting their own interests before America, and this is treason.
Just explain to me why the Superior court in Barstow California is socorrupt.
Has amyone noticed that most major scandals stem from Mormon people.
Mormons believe they will become a GOD
When I left the church, they made me lose my job, and still harass me to this day.
I will be so happy when the FBI out mormons in this country.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
