<quoted text>Actually your money is going to Deseret Management Corp for the building of shopping malls and to HooverÂ’s Company Records that are into everything from radio to insurance. Then there is always the Mormon farms in Florida under the name Farmland Reserve Inc.
So, no your tithing is not going to the Lord but to the scam operators of the Moron Church.
Those funds come from part of the investment fund that pays for "investments".

And, I am happy to pay my tithing. Tithing went as far back to Abraham and Jacob. It's not only Duty that leads me to do this, but it helps build temples, help missionaries, help the Church welfare program, etc.

If you have a problem with paying tithing... take it up with Heavenly Father and search your scriptures.

Again?? Did I miss something you didn't? Did I miss the LDS church presidency claim they had redefined marriage according to the dictates of what society believes?
Fricking fruit cake, the LDS church's colors on their stance of marriage and how they define it has NEVER stopped being defined from what it was in Smith's time.
The presidency said adjustments 'outside' the boundaries of the church were to be made by members to be more accepting of the aspects of homosexuality in the law. But the church presidency never stated voting against same sex marriage was to be quit.
You better get a grip on some reality is my suggestion because you're thinking the church had rolled over and accepted same sex marriage is some real self delusional thinking :)
By the way in your second link, "A note on tolerance" that was really funny and so true! Really had a good laugh, thanks :)
"their stance of marriage and how they define it has NEVER stopped being defined from what it was in Smiths' time", Well except for that whole polygamy thing, your statement could almost be believable.

Mormons are Christian in one sense. They are a bunch of liars for an evil god.

I hope everyone reads the letter you regard in your link... lol. You are truly an idiot... it says nothing like you say it says... you just want to be obnoxious and cause mischief.
I want your cult to stop pushing their bigoted lies. No church is forced to marry someone. It's a bunch of bs aimed at scaring sheep like you.

The question here is, "what took them so long"? Why didn't the state set this up years ago?

I want you to shut up and let us practice our religion. You're the "Bigot".

If it is legal than gay couples could come to a Bishop and say if you don't marry us we will sue you for discrimination... unless Church and State is kept separate. What do you not get about that.

BTW: I'm not scared.

WRONG Church... WRONG Topic.
If you would speak in coherent sentences that don't divert or confuse others it would be helpful.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is lead by Warren Jeffs... they are the polygamist community your article refers to... not,

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not, which does not practice polygamy in this day and time.

You had your chance to speak up in the pre-existence...

but, there you were jumping up and down shouting with joy you can follow the rules... you believe in God and will come back to him with honor.

Is that still the case because it seems you have a problem with respect.

You chose to come here... you could have chose to get kicked out with the other 1/3rd.

Your choice, your problem.

Your cult has no business pushing their agenda on people who aren't Mormon. They need to get their nose out of legislation( ESPECIALLY outside of Utah)..they are chasing their tails and you sheep will all be labeled as klan members if they don't stop.
And btw, no church has ever been forced to marry someone, they are blowing smoke up your azz and you are soaking in it.

People who willingly submit themselves to the slavery of Mormonism can't stand those who do not. They are jealous of your freedom and lack of fear.

No one ever has to give up the right to get it right. We can speak up any time we want. Isn't it funny how your God isn't doing a dang thing about it?

You talk about God, but:

...How can you believe in the Bible when you don't even believe in Genesis?

They are followers of joseph smith and not JESUS CHRIST. They follow the book of mormon and not the bible. If they were christians they would only follow what the bible says and have no need for the book of mormon or joseph smith.
