Kaylee Rar is wisdom from someone who knows the truth. Of course someone born into it would tend to believe it but that does not make it true.

The truth will set you (Mormons) free.

Their "traditional marriage" message totally backfires when they use children to promote it...doesn't it?
I heard(from someone who was there)all the stakes in rexburg idaho had floats in the towns 4th parade..each one a different temple..with the walkers(missionaries and kids) passing out BOMs. They were specifically targeting people in shorts/tank tops, etc....
Desperate, creepy and wrong on countless levels.

Funny how all you haters keep disappearing...so I have a question.. LD$ inc. is in negotiations with a national charity here to donate funds for homeless youth in Utah. Beside the creep factor of having to negotiate before helping children in their mecca(and that's really horrible, you have to admit)if there is any mention of LGBT..anything, your morg says the money is off the table.
The question..WTF? This is pure bigotry, classic Klan tactics..are all Mormons truly bigots? If you don't agree with this, why don't you leave?

You have to have a litmus test on who you help. Don't want the wrong homeless person getting help. Jesus wouldn't like that.

What's that I said? I called his statement BS, did you have a problem understanding why?? Dana stated of himself and you "...who don't get that our relationship with God is suppose to uplift our fellow man, not tear them down."
That is what I said and commented on...that Dana claimed you and he walk with God in a way where you two seek out to UPLIFT others and not to TEAR THEM DOWN, ie: say bad things of others, to bully them and say dark filthy things of them and call them names and to try and belittle them through rudeness and sarcasm which you and Dana have done ALL THE TIME IN HERE. That is what I stated. That is what I said. Understand? Hmm?
You and Dana are examples of how NOT to uplift a person but are prime examples of how to do one's best to tear other down with derogatory slanderous bullying statements. That is what you and Dana are examples of.
Says the man who justifies bigotry and homophobia completely. No, I don't want to uplift the ignorant in power. Poor baby, you've been so abused.

Those kids on that float remind me of those Prussian Blue girls. Or Warren Jeffs birthday present...
It's ok with you that LD$ inc. only wants straight children to get a meal or a clean pair of socks? How is that ok?

I love the assumption, BTW. So typical of you liberals. If there were an award for stirring the pot, you'd win the golden ladle.

Need some honest opinions: I'm a 23 year old guy and have strong values and morals. No drinking, no drugs, no cigarettes. I also don't want to have sex until marriage. Sooooo many people say, "you should convert to Mormon"...is that a insult?

Yes...you don't need a cult to take your money, tell you lies and control every aspect of your life in exchange for reinforcing the values you already have.

No. It's not an insult. Mormons and Mormon youth are known for high moral standards, just as you have. Also, I saw no question from you asking if you should join the Mormon Church. NoHo answered you as if you did. You only asked if it were an insult, which it isn't.

Sidestep??? I asked you a direct question which you never answered. Instead, you do as you always do. In an attempt to deflect from yourself and answering honestly, you project and make inaccurate assumptions. Well done...(Insert applause track here)

Sidestep..
But don't worry, your avoiding discussing the bigotry if your church isn't surprising.
