The below is dana's response to you that I will go through and explain or 'clarify' for you.<quoted text>But I gotta ask, if you aren't to be held to a Christian standard why do you keep trying to hold Dana to a Christian standard, since you both claim to be Christian.
"He wants to define "Christian standard" as one someone who doesn't get angry at the atrocities people commit in the name of God. Who should always be polite no matter how foul the act. But I can show you clearly a couple of places where Jesus did get angry with a righteous anger, where he used violence, and called names. He also is trying to avoid honest discussion of the problems with Mormonism by trying to steer the topic back to us instead of the LDS church. Which is why, for the most part, I have stopped responding to his posts."
The following is an lie. "He wants to define "Christian standard" as one someone who doesn't get angry at the atrocities people commit in the name of God." I have never made any such definement. I have spoken of "unnecessary anger" that is true. Like dana's abnormal hate and rage for a guy that's been dead for 160 years. An abnormal hate and rage that has made dana state he wishes he could have been part of the premeditated murderous mob that killed Smith and Hyrum so he could have murdered Smith himself. That's called an abnormal hate and rage. It's also abnormal for the amount of time that dana spends speaking about what dana thinks was Smith's sex life and whom Smith had sex with and it doesn't matter to dana if there is or isn't any evidence of said sex.
"Who (Christians) should always be polite no matter how foul the act." I never said any such thing. Another lie from Dana. I have said Christians should 'want' to be polite when possible. Everyone obviously experiences anger.
"Jesus did get angry with a righteous anger," This is true. But dana's anger isn't and hasn't been a 'righteous anger'. Dana's anger, hate and rage is purposeful and used to hopefully hurt other people's feelings in this thread. Dana can never show an instance where he used anger as Jesus did.
"But I can show you clearly ... where Jesus ... used violence, and called names." Dana can't compare the murderous rage and hate he has for Smith and the dark filthy names he's used for Smith and others in this thread to what Jesus did and said. There is no comparison there.
This is another out right pathetic lie from dana... "He also is trying to avoid honest discussion of the problems with Mormonism.." I challenge dana to prove his thoughts of Mormonism and he hates it when I do it. He has lied for months about Mormon history and has told twisted lies and has backed the statements of liars because he didn't research what they wrote to see if what was said was correct or not.
Need an example? He thinks Smith a sexual pervert of young girls. But he has no evidence. So he believes the Christian thing to do is to claim something true he can't prove true. Smith married over 30 females (most near his age, his age group and older) in a 3 year period. There is not a single 'love child' existing by descent of just one of those 30 females. But Smith had no problem making babies with Emma. And while Smith married 30 plus females in 3 years with not a single evident child birth, other elders married just several wives and were having babies left and right in the same time period. And many wives of Smith that were childless with him went on to remarry after his death. A year or more into that marriage and they began to have one or more kids. Dana won't consider any of those facts in his estimation of Smith. It's easier for the child in dana to brand Smith a sex pervert even if evidence is lacking. Thinking with objective reasoning is a weakness of dana's.
And yes, I do believe Smith consummated one or more of his marriages but I think they were few that did happen.
