<quoted text>I wouldn't start my own church if that is what you're asking, but yes, I would certainly start some kind of ministry to aide the homeless or extremely poor. My dream would be to help the children of the poor get the school supplies and clothing they need. The kind of stuff that doesn't shout out "I'm poor." Good self esteem could have the effect of greater success as they go out into the world.
No, I didn't mean start your own church. I meant a start a charitable organization such as the one you mentioned above.

I don't ring the bell for the Army. They get paid for that and always have a long waiting list of people who want the seasonal job. But the lost of free help has forced the local Army here to cut back breakfast to 2 times a week. It breaks my heart. The Army demanded background checks on all the helpers and many just dropped out rather then submit. It didn't bother me, I have nothing to hide.
This seems like a good place to start. Plus, it would distance yourself from the SA's homophobic beliefs which run contrary to yours.:-)

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.
lol...nice justification for why the SA church promotes hate, bigotry and prejudice as you have used the words for Mormons. You left a church so you claim because of it's hate etc and you join another and justify it's position on the same hate, bigotry and prejudice. Too fricking funny dude, really.
You could work for the poor without being a member of your hate group dude. You could volunteer at soup kitchens etc run by other organizations that don't promote the homosexual/same sex marriage hate your church espouses. And you claim those are some of the things that make the Mormon church so evil yet you give the SA church a by for their same position and YOU REMAIN A MEMBER OF A HATE CHURCH...too fricking sad dude...you can't even live by your own hate doctrine you're so fricking confused.

You sure are melodramatic. However, it's good to see that you support the Federal Government over the voice and will of the people and their right to vote. You do understand that is NOT democracy, right? That's the problem with you Libtards... if you don't get your way through the democratic process, you want the Government to supersede over the will of the people it's supposed to serve, rather than allowing the process to work for the people. Pathetic.

Yeah, I have my times for being an idiot and we all need attention. But it was you and nomo that viewed a picture of two innocent preteen girls and verbally victimized them to rape in illegal marriages.
Your need to hate has victims that aren't even aware of it. So tell me, have you and nomo somewhere in the past told your daughters in their preteen years they were young enough to be rape victims in illegal marriages? Is that why you two felt it so normal to say such things of someone else's daughters? Would you tell the same thing to those two young girls you have said in here of them if you saw them in person? Do you and nomo think the parents wouldn't mind hearing you speak to their daughters, telling them you two thought that were young enough to be small preteen rape bribes in illegal marriages?
You and nomo have some real true mental illnesses happening, just saying.

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.
So as you have stated/said of Mormons remaining Mormons no matter what they have said, you still belong to a bigoted, prejudicial, homophobia anti-same sex marriage church.
Quite strange how you have said you left one church for those reasons yet you remain in another church inspite of it having those same teachings.
How hypocritical of you as usual.

Give us a verse for that, please.
Let's go the other way. We know Jesus established apostles and prophets in his church. We know it because the first positions/offices he established were apostles. And Jesus never said he and the apostles would all be killed or would die and then would be reestablished in Rome Italy with bishops and a pope.
Now why don't you show the verse(s) that state from Jesus or his apostles, that the position of the apostles would be temporary and if they all died, apostles would never be needed to know/understand the truth of God again because a book would be made of many books after the death of Jesus and the apostles to guide all of humanity by.
Show those verses okay?

Just how does one "molest" a gospel? Where does a "gospel" keep it's sexual organs? LOL!!!
You do understand she's using the word 'molest' in a figurative way correct? The definition as she was using it for you...
Merriam-Webster...
Definition of MOLEST
1
: to annoy, disturb, or persecute especially with hostile intent or injurious effect

That is what you have personally done to the Bible and or the gospel of God/Jesus. By ridiculing and calling the book of Genesis a fable and lie, you have molested the content of the Bible as to it's originality. You do it with hostile and injurious effect.
The fact you have repeatedly accused her of using 'molest' in a sexual definition only shows what a moron your willing to be.

Just a correction here. You'll force nothing concerning same sex marriage on another never ever in your lifetime.
You can vote to change a law. That you can do. But only a judge/politician can force a law the people are against upon them. So unless you plan on becoming a legislature/politician/judge, you'll only have an opinion you can express at the voting booth like the rest of us. Stop with the grandiose thinking.

I get off on no argument. But I do enjoy reminding you and or dana when you've heaved a belly full of *hit from the dark recesses of your blackened hating hearts. Like how you viewed two small innocent Mormon girls and maliciously, with the darkest, filthiest, depraved, mentally disturbed perverted black hearted hate described them as being preteens ripe for rape in marriages American law views as illegal marriages.
You and dana did that. You and dana did that because you two thought it was a normal thing to view two small preteen girls and describe them as rape ready victims in marriages that are illegal in America.
You and dana have proved to be two of the ugliest foul mouthed people I have met in these threads. It's bad enough you take your unbridled hate to one and all Mormons but now you bow down lower than a snakes level and attack small innocent children. You two must feel so good of yourselves for such a mentally disturbed accomplishment.
You need therapy, son. And lots of it.

You and Carol are becoming more and more one person everyday. And both of you are acting like little children throwing fits. Desperation is bringing out the worst in you. Pathetic.

I read a post today from a catholic who went to confession and told the priest about having impure thoughts about a woman. The priest gave penance and the inquirer asked if there should be extra penance because of her gender..the priest told her to be thankful that god had made her unique, that gender is irrelevant, that we are all the same in gods eyes.

Is LD$, inc. the only bigoted religion?? No. Are there growing multitudes in every religion who realize that this discrimination is total crap, with no basis other than ignorance? Yes.
Your morg reaps what they sow. Prop H8 was the cliff you all dove off of. Get ready..your fall has just begun.
You theist bigots can all go praise your flavor of god in the same closet you kept your gay members in all these years.

Taking all things into consideration... you mistake the definition requiring it to pertain to a person.

Where in () it is an example.... not a requirement get it!

Ok... so the Catholics now go against what the statutes and commandments given in the Bible.

Are you not aware how many people they tortured and killed in the DARK AGES.

WOW... you are such an idiot. You think it is ok to disobey commandments of the Bible... for your selfish desires are more important than God's commands.

You are sick!

Are you aware of the sadistic torture your cult puts gay people through, to this day, via evergreen? Your cult can totally compete with them for the pedophile trophy.
