Dear child, this childish saying is sooo old and boring. Can't you think of some new childish saying to say to us? Hmmm?

The Mormon Great Game

Typical of the response of Mormons to criticism is to attempt to isolate critics from the mainstream of Christian thought and even civilised society. This is done by labelling critics “anti-Mormon,” defining them in terms of their relationship to Mormonism rather than by their faith, and ascribing to them base motives far removed from those of true, good-hearted Christians.

Mormonism’s critics are portrayed as holding to beliefs that are peculiar even to other Christians, as having problems with Mormon theology that most other Christians would not have. There is a history to this kind of approach, represented by such Mormon books as Offenders for a Word, How Wide the Divide and Are Mormons Christians?

Further, in an attempt to legitimise theology that is peculiar to Mormonism, and alien to historical, orthodox Christianity, Mormons seek first to redefine what are often settled issues for the Christian Church; the nature of God, the nature of man, the person of Jesus, the nature of sin, the significance of the cross, the means of grace and salvation, the work of the Holy Spirit, the reliability of the Bible and the eternal destiny of the saints.

This way they create something more in their own image and call it Christianity. They then compare the views of Christian apologists looking critically at Mormonism with this chimera and represent these apologists as though they are out on a limb as far as most Christians are concerned. I call this the Mormon Great Game.

Excellent blog exposing the tactics of Mormons.

Because following the leaders is more important than doing what's best for your child.

"In April, the LDS Church responded to the Ordain Women movement by emphasizing that God loves both genders equally."

Reminds me of "Animal Farm" "All animals are equal, just some are more equal than others."

George Orwell would be proud.

I get this game. You made a deceptive lie already. You meant to say let's see how many lies and deceptions you can convince others of that you claim exist in these videos.
But I'm game to listen. Why don't you list five lies and 5 deceptions you claim exist in these videos and the rest of us will check sources to see if your a liar or if you're actually telling the truth.
Waiting...you began the game so get on with it :)

Equal means different things...

For instance how many men have babies and have their period?

You will reduce yourself to anything to convince someone you are a liar?

You don't have to spread any more lies... all a person has to do is look through this thread and find out you don't even believe in Genesis.

And how many men want to? None. Men don't get upset because they can't have babies, and they make fun of women because they have periods.

Whether I believe in Genesis or not has nothing to do with the fact that the women of the LDS church are second class citizens and have no say so in the church.
