Well, you have no standards, and you work to prove that in every post, so at least you have that to claim to fame.
Really? Please supply proof. You claim it's there, waiting......
Now let's speak of your standards.
You stated if you could murder a murdered man you would do it. Great standard. These posts are full of your dark filthy statements. Great standard. You claimed early Mormons got all they deserved from the mobs meaning rape, robbery, theft, physical assaults etc. Nice standards. You have called posters here every vile filthy name one can imagine to call another. Nice standards. You have proved your a hater from that black heart. Nice standard. You have revealed you held total disrespect and even hate for your parents and church authority figures in your youth. Nice standards. You became a racist to have enduring standards for years to others.
Should I continue on about your great standards you claim to have? How about all those great standards you have that caused you to use the most derogatory homosexual sayings to other posters in the past? You're really fricking pathetic sometimes...

No. As a celestial polygamist(lol) what if those women don't want to be sealed to him...do they have a choice or are they stuck for eternity? What if they don't want to be sealed to a man? Are they doomed to the lower levels?
They wanted to be sealed to him. You're lack of knowledge is hindering you in this. Being sealed to each other is usually first discussed prior to a temple marriage. And if it's a second marriage for a temple Mormon man but not for a Mormon woman, they will discuss it prior to even being married. Even non-temple married Mormons that are active speak of the wish to be sealed prior to marriage.
Mormons have a deep belief in an afterlife. They know one can go there being sealed or not being sealed and being sealed is the desire of most. It's a discussion that takes place for most Mormon couples before they tie the knot. Ask any active temple Mormon woman you know when she discussed it with her husband, before or after being married.

No, actually I consider Oaks to be a huge pig and feel sympathy for those poor women who are now stuck with him for eternity. Can they be unsealed once they are all dead?
I hope you have gained an understanding of this by now. A widow like Oaks for example, he doesn't remarry and seal himself to her without her knowledge. Understand? If she's sealed to him it's because she wanted to be sealed to him.
You can't have this the way you're presenting it, that widow temple Mormon men wait till after their next wife dies and or while she's alive and seals her to themselves without her permission. Doesn't work like that.
If the all knowing Dana knew this stuff as he lied about knowing, he should be the one answering every question you have about Mormons before anyone else answered them cause he's your bud :)

So, I was watching the local news and they ran a story about a couple of guys who had a confrontation at one of the wards in Salt Lake City. Apparently two men were arguing over saving a seat. After the service there was an altercation in the parking lot of the church and the police became involved. One of the guys, maybe both, was arrested and charged with assault. I think they said something about one guy trying to run someone over with their car. Now I realize this could happen at any church or place of worship, surely it happens at St. Peters Basilica all the time, so I'm not trying to single out any Mormons, but I'm wondering, isn't being in church supposed to have that "power of Christ compels you" affect where you feel peacefully uplifted and have that good will towards man mindset. I know that it eventually wears off, but I keep picturing these two spuds flipping each other off and pounding their chest while the rest of the flock is giving testimony. These guys weren't young bucks either, both a little on the mature side as far as age goes. I have a hunch there was a woman involved. I'm also curious if there are consequences aside from legal ones. I mean as far as the church, or does this stuff happen all the time?
People are people no matter who/what they may be lol. I wonder about this same thing often about Peter, seriously. Here's a guy that takes up with God himself who teaches him love and compassion, forgiveness and charity and all that great stuff. So a mob of men come to arrest Jesus and what does Peter do who's been taught all the aforementioned qualities he's to have for others? He pulls out a sword and tries his best to cave in the head of the guard grabbing Jesus, misses and cuts off his ear! People will be people I guess is the normal answer.

<quoted text>Yes, a lot of Mormon women confess odd things to me also. They really don't realize that their sisters are having the same thoughts. It kinda sad, their sisterhood could be so enforced if they would open up to each other.
Too fricking funny! And you don't think the brotherhood aspect don't look at her of 20 or more years at times and wonder about being sealed to them too? lol....give me a break like females are any more well and wondrous things to be around after a 20 year marriage...lol...

In Alaska the laundry mats have showers and the Mosquitos stop biting about 2 weeks after you stop bathing.
...so, he's really got a problem.

Mosquitos have nothing on you and dana, just saying. At least what they do comes naturally. You two have to mentally bath in hate, anger and that pathetic immature dialogue you think is going to hurt someone's emotions before coming in the thread. On the other hand, what you to formulate to say in the threads is rather natural like what mosquitos do. Maybe you speak like this all the time, maybe that's why you do it with such ease eh?

I don't use foul words often but your post causes me to ask you are you that much of a fricking moron, a fricking gullible moron or just a pathet uninformed idiot of Mormon history? I was nice and gave you a choice to choose from and didn't specify which you were. That was nice of me yes? lol.

"Brief History of Tithing and the Financial Stability of the LDS church."
Financial stability? From it's inception as insinuated in the article? Do you know how many times this church began with nothing financially and due to various situations lost what it held and had to start all over again from nothing from Smith to the late 1800s?
There may well be a history for how tithing changed over the decades true. But a timeline of financial security from Smith to now? lolol....only a fricking pathetic uniformed person of Mormon history would swallow that line of BS and you did licking your lips afterwards...lol..too funny...

Who is the birth right mother? Real Christians follow Jesus Christ and his teachings in the bible. End of story. If you don't do this then you are not a real Christian.

Ignorance is different than intentionally being stupid and I think you are ignorant on the topic of LDS Church and teachings. Thus, I hope to enlighten you so you don't look to appear ignorant.

The Definition of Ignorant being:
adjective: ignorant
1. lacking knowledge or awareness in general; uneducated or unsophisticated.
synonyms: uneducated, unknowledgeable, untaught, unschooled, untutored, untrained, illiterate, unlettered, unlearned, unread, uninformed, unenlightened, benighted

//
Regarding your statement that real Christians follow Jesus Christ and his teachings in the bible.

We do both.

*We - Mormons - study and follow the teachings in the bible according to The King James version of the Old Testament and the New Testament.

*We also follow Jesus Christ and believe he died for our sins.

//
Below is the encyclopedia definition on wiki of what a Christian is. Another thing you can do is call the Mormon church and ask for Missionaries to come visit you and tell you about what the Church is about. If you are not comfortable doing that, there is also the Internet site Mormon.org that can inform you as to what and why we believe what we do.

How can you believe in the bible and the book of mormon? How can you be a Christian and follow the false prophet joseph smith?
