Christ's Church is a pyramid scheme. Is that what you are going to tell him on judgement day?
Yes and the first presidency should all be in prison for numerous charges, including fraud.

You are crazy!

You think that God wants people in Church to go around and preach homosexuality is ok...

No...

You must separate the good (his commandments and teachings)
from the bad (peoples desires becoming more important than his commands).

You can spread your opinions or lies around but that's all it is... is your personal opinion, it's not God's command.

It amazes me that you think it's ok to preach and tell people the Church is wrong for following what God commands.

It's a good thing this isn't the dark ages you would be burned at the stake for heresy, or maybe they would just bury you alive... who knows what they would do to you.

I guess what I am saying is just because you don't understand it, or support it... doesn't make the Church wrong.

What is important is God's commands.

what makes you think the church has God's approval anyway? They don't follow what the Bible says. For example: God expects true religion to stay politically neutral. Religion disobeys that. etc. How do you think God's feels about that?

The Catholics are the ones that burned heretics in the dark ages. The Church of Jesus Christ had to be restored because it became corrupted.

No, I would NEVER sustain their actions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Separation_of_ch...

"In English, the exact term is an offshoot of the phrase, "wall of separation between church and state", as written in Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Danbury Baptist Association in 1802. In that letter, referencing the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, Jefferson writes: "Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions,...

The Mark of Cain
The Mormon prophet Brigham Young on the appearence of Africans:
“Cain slew his brother....and the Lord put a mark upon him, which is the FLAT NOSE AND BLACK SKIN...”
(Journal of Discourses, Vol. 7, pages 290-291)
From a Mormon Publication:
“Their skin is quite black, their hair woolly and black, THEIR INTELLIGENCE STUNTED, and they appear never to have arisen from the most savage state of barbarism.” The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 3, page 157)
Besides a black skin, Africans have a black heart, according to Mormon publication Times and Seasons, edited by future prophet John Taylor:
“The descendants of Ham, besides A BLACK SKIN which has ever been a curse that has followed an apostate of the holy priesthood, as well as a BLACK HEART, have been servants to both Shem and Japheth, and the ABOLITIONISTS ARE TRYING TO MAKE VOID THE CURSE OF GOD, BUT IT WILL REQUIRE MORE POWER THAN MAN POSSESSES TO COUNTERACT THE DECREES OF ETERNAL WISDOM.”
(Times and Seasons, Vol. 6, page 857)

Thus, I think you are wrong about God saying "true religion to stay politically neutral".

Why do you think Jesus Christ was sacrificed to the political Pharisees.

" The separation of church and state is the distance in the relationship between organized religion and the nation state.

Although the concept of separation has been adopted in a number of countries, there are varying degrees of separation depending on the applicable legal structures and prevalent views toward the proper role of religion in society. While a country's policy may be to have a definite distinction in church and state, there may be an "arm's length distance" relationship in which the two entities interact as independent organizations.

And gullible you would have eaten it up with a spoon. You would celebrate it. Do you celebrate your brothers and sisters being kicked out if their house as children, for being gay? What would you do, if one if your kids came out? You would light the fire..

And your cult has no business in trying to control equality laws across this country because of its ignorant hateful bigotry.

No, you don't know me too well do you, and you are guessing wrongly.

I would have died burned to the stake for what I believe in (Jesus Christ and his commandments).

I would have not recanted. I would have taught my children the Lords prayer and spoken out about the power abuses of the Roman Church at the time.

...Children are kicked out of NON-Latter-day Saints homes for pregnancy, drugs, homosexuality.

...Children are kidnapped and sold by their mothers for drugs in NON-Latter-day Saint homes.

...Children are not safe in NON-Latter-day Saint homes.

Think about the reality of what you are saying.
This world is tainted with Satan swirling around it.
Trying to get into the minds and hearts of individuals to deceive God.

Don't blame it on the Lords Church.
It is the people of the world that do wrong.

...We are told we have to follow the commandments (all of the commandments).

...That does not spare us from tragedies around us, even doesn't spare us from experiencing tragedies from happening to us.

FYI: not all Mormons follow all commandments... that does not make the Church wrong. It makes them wrong. They will answer to Heavenly Father for what they have done.

And, that is your opinion... but not all agree. Someone has to stand up for what is right... and what is right is to follow God's commands.

So, if marriage is legal for a woman to marry another woman... then it won't be long until polygamy is legal again.
