Not true, the racism of the LDS church is well documented. The Book of Mormon still teaches it. The LDS may have changed their policy about allowing blacks to hold the priesthood and attending the temple, but they still haven't rejected the teachings that created the policy in the first place. That is fact.It' your teachings, own it, or feel free to prove me wrong.As for your cries of "racism", you are like the leftists who cry racism every time someone disagrees with Barack Obama on political issues. It is misdirection, nothing more.
The doctrine against homosexuality in the Army isn't racism, it's bigotry. When you discriminate against homosexuals, you are doing so against homosexuals of all races. What Mormonism taught against was race based, and bigotry both. The message I spread isn't "join my church and be saved" it's "put your faith in the blood of Jesus Christ and be saved". I don't care if a person joins my church or not. I'm a missionary for the Lord Jesus Christ, not the Salvation Army. That and the fact I'm using the Army to help the poor and homeless is not hypocrisy, it's doing what Jesus commanded us to do. Despite the Army's policy on homosexuals, they will not refuse to help feed or clothe someone because they are homosexual.Your church, the Salvation Army, still has a stated doctrine against homosexuality and gay marriage, yet you, who vocally supports gay marriage, still remain a member of a church considered "anti-gay" by the gay community. You still work for, and spread the message of, a church that is "anti-gay", yet you refuse to address your hypocrisy. Every time I bring it up, you misdirect with the term "racism" towards the Lord's church. It's an age old ruse, but it's not effective. The term "racism" has been overused to the point that the only people who think it's still effective are those who bandy it about.
The most growth in the LDS church is by birth, not conversion. That is also a fact. And of those who do convert the retention rate is very low. That is also the truth. Any member can prove this for themselves by looking at the list of membership and comparing it to the actual number of people who attend on a regular bases. I know for a fact in my home ward it was 1 in 5 or 6. I have no doubt the coming of the internet has only made that worst.My church has failed? Not at all. My church grows and prospers worldwide. New members come to the fold everyday because of my church's message of love and salvation. That is the fact.
And no doubt that pisses you off. But I do know for a fact that our efforts do have effect because I was there for the many who has left because of my efforts and perseverance. Mormons are coming to the Lord, and out of the LDS church.Angry and bitter ex-Mormons may have loud mouths, but their actual numbers are small compared to those who find solace in God's teachings. In short, the rancor of ex-Mormons has no effect among believers, but if you all want to get together and continue to loudly convince each other you are correct, have at it. It's your right.
