<quoted text>I realize that you've said in the past that your relationship is with Jesus Christ, not the church you go to; however, even though you say you have condemned them for their beliefs on homosexuality, how do you justify it in your mind to still attend that church? I'm just curious. In my thinking if I had a problem with how my church believes and openly stated something of that magnitude, I would not only condemn them, but leave as well. Now, the SA's stance that gays should be put to death is Klan mentality if there ever was any. Honestly, I'm a bit surprised you would still attend, and not be openly opposing them just as you do with the LDS Church.
And of course you agree with LD$, inc...
I applaud people who stay in an organization to change it. If you want to cling to bigotry and not allow change because of some twisted sh1t your pastor/ profit/general/priest/wtf ever you want to call these azzholes told you. go ahead. You will go down as bigots and shame your descendants. It's like everyone of you have suggested I move out of Utah...no, I'm here and you bigoted morons are going to change if it has to be force fed. Every religion out there that perpetuates these views needs change or they choose to be seen as a bunch of lies used to control people. If you want to tit-for-tat Mormons vs SA...go for it and please include the Catholics, born agains, Pentecostals, Jehovah witnesses, baptists, the multitudes of hate groups hiding behind PACS and lobbyist groups who claim tax exemption...etc. you get the idea...and that's just in this country.
Sad thing is that LD$, inc. would probably win the fight.
Personally, I couldn't remain in a religion like that..the ones that stay for change are way more dedicated to it than all the smug bigots

Yes, using children to promote hate always backfires, too bad you are f'ed in the head to see it. Fred Phelps doesn't see the problem either.
Man are you a real true whacktoid. Don't you ever quit? Don't you ever tire of projecting the venomous seething hate and rage you have for others like little Mormon kids?
Little non-Mormon kids raised by hetero parents and single parents promote opposite sex marriage in many, many different ways from pretending to the media. 24/7. And in their societies and in most states their laws forbid same sex marriage. It isn't a teaching, it's a fricking law and you can't say who supports the law and who can't. So using the same bent and pathetically twisted logic you used of what those little Mormon kids represent, so also all those non-Mormon kids represent, hate for same sex marriage.
You're a fricking looney tune nut job. You hate because you're a self made hater. You love to hate. If you aren't hating Mormon doctrine, you're hating the leaders. If you're not hating the leaders, you're hating the members. Now you show when you're not hating the aforementioned, you're more than willing to picture two small innocent girls as sex slaves in illegal marriages. Your filthy, deep dark blackened heart can only find new new things to hate and hopefully victimize. This time it's two small innocent girls. This is a new all time low you hit for your depraved filthy thinking.

“Good day to you!”

Nooooo...lolol....you and nomo have explicitly made it clear how much of a perv thinking it takes to view two small innocent girls and view them as sex slaves in an illegal marriage. That's the rawest form of mental perversion that one can spell out on paper.
You and nomo have proven beyond any doubt how depraved you're thinking is by trying to victimize two small innocent girls and for what point? To prove how disgustingly dark and filthy and depraved you two will take your thinking to so to be voiced?
You two are really a couple of sick depraved people.

First off... wow.
Second, I was asking Dana a question and wanted to hear his response. I don't care about your opinion, or who or what you applaud. If I was interested in yours, I would have asked you, or stated it in a more general way.
Now, since you felt the need to give your opinion where it wasn't wanted, I will say to you that If that's the case and Dana stays in the SA in order to effect change, then he'd still be a member of the LDS Church based on your logic. Epic fail, NoHo. Epic. Fail.
Am I the only one who sees this???

Btw- I love how you libtards want to "force" everyone to think as you do. And yes, if you ever want to be happy you should move out of Utah.:-)

lol...liar. You're a pathetic liar according to nomo logic. If a person is a Mormon, they support/promote the hate of same sex marriage, even little children. No one can be an active church going Mormon and disagree with church doctrine according to nomo's bent logic. Two little girls on a Mormon float having fun, maybe having a hope to be married one day can't support marriage and not be a promoter of same sex marriage hate. That is nomo logic.
So accordingly applied to you, you're a liar. You support the negative Salvation Army church doctrine that stands against homosexuals/same sex marriage. According to nomo you can't claim to be a member of the S.A. church and not support/promote their hatred which nomo's logic claims you do.
So don't say you condemn that doctrine. Nomo logic says you do and your a liar to say otherwise.

Umm. You got kicked out..you can't change sh1t. I support Mitch Mayne and the multitudes of others staying in for change. You, on the other hand get off(and roll in it) on the argument...totally creepy of course.but the pathetic part is clinging to the captors who keep you in the closet.

You will be forced to face your very own bigotry, up close and personal. Your LD$ inc will too..don't worry though..I promise it tastes like skittles.

Read the article Crazy, the Army spoke out against that statement and apologize after it was made. The person who said it wasn't speaking for the whole church. How many times have you and others have tired to tell me what a leader has said doesn't make it official church beliefs?
His statement was denounced as soon as he said it.
The biggest reason I go to the Army still the opportunity to work with the poor and homeless which I have a big heart for. There isn't a better organization set up to do such work. And no matter what their attitudes towards homosexuals, there is no gay test given to anyone before they will help them. They will help anyone of all walks of life, even Mormons if they walked in needing it.

I will be the first to say that yes, the Army needs to change their beliefs, and believe that it will happen some day. But I also don't promote the Army, or do missionary work for them. I certainly will never tell you it's the only true church, or that you need to be a member of it in order to be saved. Their leaders are not prophets or apostles. They don't claim direct revelation from God.

Don't forget, the primary reason I left Mormonism is because I believe it rejects even the most basic principle of salvation and that is salvation by the grace of Jesus Christ alone. Mormonism is a works based system of salvation.

They are desperate, Dana. This is the worst part of LD$, inc. Flinging poo like caged monkeys..they don't care what the SA's stance is and they aren't offended. They hold up that idiot in Australia as a "see, we aren't so bad" flag..really? Does the SA have an evergreen? I honestly don't know If they do or not but as long as evergreen is open and thriving, they lose.
Clue in..if you kick your kid out of the house for being gay..you are a failure as a parent, as a follower of Jesus and as a fcuking human. This cult had to make a website to tell its members that wasn't cool..and they still do it, daily.

According to the Church Jesus Christ set up on earth... those prophets and apostles are essential in "HIS" Church.

So you do think polygamy is essential to your salvation, you do believe that black skin is a curse from God, and you have clearly admitted your hatred of homosexuals. Great job! LOL!!!
