To answer your question honestly, NO, I did not come here to offend female Mormons.
I did come here to kill some time, and what I said is true, I do find a lot of sexual partners, particularly Mormon ones, exactly like that. But, again to be totally honest, it was semi serious and semi sarcastic, because I love how vehement non Mormons have to be when they try to insult your faith.
I have never understood why people like Dana feel it so necessary to justify their own false belief, by slamming others false belief. It only proves they have not the courage of their own convictions.( Oh, Dana, that means you are scared that what you believe is wrong, so you justify it by tearing down those who do not believe as you do, because deep inside you are afraid what you believe is actually wrong.)( Sorry Sport, had to 'splain that for the folks on the short bus.)
But really, think about it, all "people of faith" are in essence arguing that " my invisible man in the sky can beat up your invisible man in the sky!" If they really have faith in what they believe, they would simply explain why they believe it, and that would suffice. Its only those who have that twinge of doubt that must degrade others to justify themselves. And any Mormon who argues with these people are being hypocritical in that one of the articles of faith tell you to let them worship who or what they may. I personally have no problem letting anyone believe whatever they want, hell, I'm not against prayer in schools, or the word God in the pledge or on the money. I think Darwin had a point and so did Gandhi. I believe the meaning of life is a cheeseburger, in that its flat and plain in the beginning, flat and plain in the end, the only real meat is in the middle and before you're satisfied, its all gone. I also believe there is a place for Santa Clause in every child's life because what a wonderment it is to believe in things fantastical.
If you Mormons had the true courage of YOUR convictions, this thread would have died after three posts, one, the original, two someone stating Mormons aren't Christian, and one Mormon stating that they are. But it just shows that no one really has faith, or truly believes OR practices what they preach.
So, any Mormon girls want to get turned over Daddy's knee and spanked like the naughty little girl you are?? LOL
Interesting.

First, I think the regulars here just like to come here and chat at times.

Second, if you stop the naughty little girl crap and stick around you might learn something from what is being said.

Third, I KNOW there God exists... and I KNOW the Church is true... and Joseph Smith was a true prophet. Now, let me tell you one reason I know this. When I was 27 I got cancer. My faith was tested. I started studying and researching as much as I could about all religions and the history behind it. Its been 16.5 years now and guess what I'm still alive and I still have cancer that has never been in remission. Now trust me when I say I've been tested plenty and in many ways.

The truth is out there. One just has to seek it.

My kids went out of state..BYU is a joke.
My sister went to BYU in the "70's. She said her and her dorm mates once sat in a circle and traded stories on how their dads molested them. Only two of ten girls said it never happened,( my sis being one cause our dad ran off with a 17 yr old who used to baby sit us). That was when she decided to leave the "Y".

But then, hell, I got no room to point a stinky finger myself, but at least I admit it!!! lol

Well, good for you, But my sister had faith as you do, was a faithful member, paid tithing, sent her kid on a mission, and she just died of brain cancer Sat. morning. That is why I'm in your lovely little town. To lay to rest the most faithful member of my entire family. So, believe what you want if it comforts you, but for myself, if God existed, I would be dead, not my sister.

Oh, and just a little FYI, it was my experience in the Temple that led me to leave your religion. So, there is nothing about the teachings that I do not already know. I just opened my mind to the reality of what all religion actually it, but if it helps you, then good for you.

Oh and some other little factoids for you, just cause I'm bored.
I lost my virginity at 17 to my bishops wife. I used to go to priesthood meetings to score drugs, cause the elders always had them. When I was 14 a priesthood leader drove me out into the forest and tried to suck my c*ck. My elders quorum president went to prison for rustling cattle. The town police chief (and a bishop) used to pull over teenage girls and molest them. He also would get into feuds with people,(me being one) and pull his cop car into your property and shoot your animals. When I was taking the temple lessons, the person giving them to me went through the temple with us, then admitted the next day to having an ongoing sexual relationship with a teen girl who was pregnant. I lived in the same small Mormon town my whole childhood with my divorced mother and 5 siblings, and no one EVER came by to visit unless they wanted something from us.(love that fellowship) I could go on and on, but the one that relates to you the most is one of my female friends from high school was married to a man whose faith was so strong that when she was bleeding profusely after giving birth, he said that if they prayed enough and had faith, God would save her.( hence no giving her medical care) But when she died, it was "God's will".

SO don't come back now and tell me that those are acts of the people and not the church,, the people ARE the church, but thanks for the flashback on the little Fast Sunday cult mantra.

But also, notice how I am not attacking YOU personally, just telling my side.

So do you KNOW of any Girls who look hot in a Girl Scout Uniform?

No. There wasn't a contradiction except if you twist the information to glean one where there was none which you and dana do so very often it's becoming a normal pattern of you both.
There's a distinction you're for some reason based in idiocy not acknowledging. That's on you.
"About six in ten of these suicides were committed by male members of the LDS church." You posted it, how does this information escape you?

Hey dana, there's someone you can identify with. He was disillusioned with the new LDS race attitude policy like you!
That's one thing you can count on with the LDS, unlike those stuffy Catholics who stick to their doctrine, the Mormons will always update their "new" "attitude" to eventually reflect political correctness.

I see no reason to watch any videos made by people who are just doing as I said, trying to justify their own failed faith.

I actually live the one Mormon teaching I actually believe in, "let them worship how, where, or what they may."

If I am being totally open, I have to say, I know there is something more than what we see.( I actually do ghost investigation for a TV show and I have seen things that would turn a black man white) So, does "God" exist? Maybe. Do I care? Not really. I just chose to no longer believe that the invisible man in the sky will reward me for being good and punish me for being bad. I want to believe in Karma, but I am proof people don't always get paid back for the evil they do. So, as I said, if it comforts you to believe that the invisible man who reads your thoughts wants to save you from cancer, well, if that's comforting, cool.

No one can say "I know the church is true", all you can say is "I BELIEVE the church is true", otherwise you are lying. Absolute knowledge would eliminate faith. You don't have to have faith that your car is real, you can see it sitting in your driveway, but once you go inside your house, then you only have faith your car still there, because then you have no absolute knowledge. We know Joe Smith existed, but did he talk to God? Well, I used to believe I talked to God and he listened, but I also know that is a classic symptom of manic-depression, which runs in my family. So now, I have doubt that I ever talked to anything but the wind, but I am also now at peace with that.

So, for me, I do not hate anyone for what they believe, only for what they do. Also, if I were to believe the bible, there are two unforgivable sins,,,, and I have committed both. So I am damned regardless.

Right now I date a woman who is a Wiccan priestess. She believes it as powerfully as I have seen Mormons believe in their faith. The house we live in is haunted by something supernatural, and once after an investigation, some dark negative force followed us home. In my days of faith, I would have called the priesthood to bless my house, but my GF burned sage, chanted an incantation and had another wiccan come cleanse the house, and the dark entity left. So, is what she believes wrong? Will she go to hell for worshiping the power of the physical forces? Christians would say "YES".

I have seen in my investigations what seemed to be interaction with a "trapped spirit" who would have been at a very isolated desert cemetery since 1903. If that is true, and our spirits can become trapped, then there is nothing to hope for and death will be endless misery. I hope that I am wrong, but I don't KNOW I am wrong. NO ONE DOES!

As for myself, I hope there is a heaven, because people I have loved deserve to be there. But for myself, I believe like Socrates once said, only two things are possible after death, it will be like a long unending sleep where you don't dream, or we will go to where everyone is who has gone before. Either way, no one really knows, we all just have faith as to what is there.

Hey, I'm here cause of boredom and I'm now exchanging perverted messages with a good little Mormon girl in West Valley.(told ya it works) But isn't it funny how you chose to attack me personally rather than defend your belief??? LOL, you hypocrites always are so amusing. So now we play the insult game I take it? Ok, lets see how long before you have to resort to profanity..

You don't fricking read...lol. What is wrong with you're reading comprehension? Is this a mental disability you have going?
I said... "Umm, there's no difference between a non-Mormon and a non-active Mormon. They are essentially one and the same for habits/addictions etc except one has their name on the LDS records."
Pearl replied, not word for word as you imagine she said... "So, me being a non-Mormon and you being a non-active Mormon are essentially one in the same? I'm going to have a hard time wrapping my head around that one."
I made a reference to habits and addictions as the correlation between non-Mormons and Mormons. Some how pearl decided that made her and I one and the same which isn't what I stated and which isn't what she stated I said word for word.
I'm beginning to understand a possibility for your inability to comprehend what was actually written and how you twist it to mean what wasn't stated. You ever been seen for learning disabilities?
Dana's comment wasn't in reference to the post you are trying to explain. It was in reference to the "six out of ten of these suicides were committed by male members of the LDS church" I don't mind helping you follow along, but you really might not want to be so cocky about it, it's kinda like biting the hand that feeds you.
As far as the post you are referring to, your first sentence was, Non-Mormons and non-active Mormons are one in the same. Now you know I'm a novice but, shouldn't a sentence be able to stand on it's own? If you write a sentence and then feel the need to explain it, perhaps you didn't phrase it properly. And of course we all know you and I are not one in the same, so why say it?
