Tell me if a married LDS woman can get to heaven alone and I'll tell you about the cult of mormonism. Bow down woman!...your man is speaking!
Men and women are on exactly equal footing where heaven is concerned, in LDS theology. A single man and a single woman can both inherit the celestial kingdom. There are additional blessings promised to women and men who are sealed in the temple as an eternal companionship; they must do so together. Sorry - your oppression schtick doesn't stick here.

"I thought Chic Filet was Baptist.."

I'll try and find that out. I thought they were Pente. Some one on expentecostal azusa street survivor forum posted that they are pente.

Really don't want to start a fight, but explain to me that if the LDS church doesn't force anyone into the church then why does the church baptize dead people?
Sounds like an honest question - honest answer: baptism for the dead and any other vicarious ordinance is valid for that perosn only if they accept it on the other side. Performing the ordinance does not take away the deceased person's agency, it just gives them the chance to accept it. Christ says you must be baptised to enter the kingdom of heaven; this is the only way someone without a body has a chance to do that. It's a very merciful doctrine, but not a coercive one.

truw you do not force anyone to be a mormon, but here in idaho and utah, where the mormons own / operate everything up to and in cluding the schools, in one form or another, if a person decides not to be a mormon, you turn your back on them , faster than a new york min. ie: you won't let you kids play with thier kids is just one example. I have seen it happen to family memebrs in my own family, right here in perfect Idaho Falls.
If a non mormon wants to play sports in public school. he/ she may get on to the team, but with very little playing time, even if they are better than some of the mormon kids.
If your up for a promotion and your non mormon. you won't get it. Instead lies are made up about your work performance, etc.
Ask any non mormorn, and they will tell you how it is.
Yes, I have seen this happen, these types of things are very prevalent, but you can't expect most mormons to understand that this is the way it is. They haven't had to live with the comments and their kids aren't the ones that are shunned. They will deny this happens, even though there are many of us that have witnessed it first hand. I don't know if it is blanket denial or if they simply can't believe that people could act that way, or they just don't care because we are "them". Nothing hurts quite like your child being told, right out in the open,that they can't spend time with their children. How do you explain this to a child without creating a child with an inherent dislike for the people that made them feel poorly?

This is just one of many examples of what happens when mormons are in the majority.
