Why do u pay money to exclude, shun and torment gay people?
I pay tithing, because it's a biblical commandment.

Well, if you mean that I'm not going to respond well to the kinds of juvenile bully playground insults that Crazy flings at me, count me as a non-taker. And if you agree with No Prize that what I advocate for children in terms of letting them be who they are amounts to contributing to their suicide, I'm not going to take that well either. As far as what I'm doing with you is that I'm noting the stark inconsistencies and inability to make a decision and the extreme tightrope acrobatics you're engaged in to make your cult jibe with what you think and know to be morally correct.
Maybe you should try paying attention to what I type, as opposed to grouping me.

According to Joseph's Myth, he (ol' Horndog Joe) sits at the judgment bar with your cult's Jesus to judge you all.

Your Morg (meaning your morg's founder) Joey would then be in a position indeed to cast you into the outer darkness.

You first typed that I can dish it out better than I can take it back. When I said I am not taking anything back, you said I can't take tongue lashings. Hello...

You aren't making much sense, Sister...

In other words, she does it because she's told to....

She therefore allows them to have the power over her that regardless of her own thoughts in the matter, she does not wish to lose her sacred admission ticket to the International House of Handshakes. Because it's more important for her to do the passwords and the handshakes and to wear the underwear than it is that they torture and drive people to suicide. In other words... That's what really matters.

<quoted text> I don't recall criticizing your spelling. However to answer your question, yes I would vote for a Muslim if I thought he could do the job well. Elections aren't about religion.
Thank you, that was like pulling teeth.

Most all religions follow the same commandment.

I said you can dish it out, but not take it back. As in can't take the same thing in return. Seems pretty clear.

It always boggles my mind that people who claim to be able to whatever they like, think the world works that way for everyone. It also shows a very limited imagination.

I'm paying attention. Would you tell us, please, do you agree with the position the lds church has regarding homosexualality?

No they don't. They typically call it an "offering". They do not force you into a "settlement" meeting at the end of the year to scrutinize what you gave with what you made. They do not withhold certain membership benefits based on what you pay. The verses in Malachi are not and were never intended to be a new testament law.

And while we're at it, you'll never get any word about where your tithing dollars go. Most other mainstream churches fully disclose this information.

Limited empathy. Limited world view. Yes, she fit herself in a mold and wonders why everyone doesn't join her.

I'm responding to every post, so I'm taking what you're giving me... Again, I fail to get your point.

No I don't. I've made that clear, to my bishop as well. I think people are born with a certain sexual preference.

You asked if I could vote for a Muslim. My response was I can do anything I like. How is that thinking the world works a certain way. You took my comment out of context. Anyone in a free country can choose how they see things.

I wasn't raised Mormon. I know how tithes and offerings work in other churches. My mother taught me to give 10% to the lord. She is baptist.

The Lord? Lol, u are lining PaKKKer's pockets. And paying for Monson to have a Lear jet when he doesn't even know where he is. U paid for a mall that seems to have hired black water for security. But the worst is u paying for evergreen torture..can u imagine wanting to stay in that cult of yours soo much that u would let those evil lizard people shock your genitals, feed u ipecac and show u porn? That u aren't worthy if u don't try it?
Or..( the better alternative?)..just get married and fake it(because it will go away)..do u have any clue how this affects your gay children??
Play ur silly middle school games. The truth will still be here..or it will be history and u will be on the wrong side.
