Your perverted thoughts are not who the people are inside and if they do their duty to God or not... it's no their temple garments.

It's really sad that's the only arguments you 2 can come up with to focus on.
Repression and shame cause some really fcuked up thinking...

I think it's weird, sad and also important to know in certain situations. It's the level of indoctrination, it's like watching a train wreck.
Indoctrination. A train wreck? lol... Oh, you mean like the level of indoctrination people are facing being made to accept same sex marriage who disagree with it or be called all sorts of names and derogatory words by people like you who support this indoctrination to convert or else? You mean the indoctrination business owners go through being forced to serve ALL who walk through their door or be sued and have your business closed? You mean that type indoctrination? You mean the indoctrination we all go through by police, being forced by law to believe we have less and less right to personal privacy and police have more and more search and seizure rights?
See, wearing a temple garment is a choice. If you don't want to wear one, you can still be a Mormon but you won't be able to enter the temples and that's how it is for most of Mormons, they don't wear temple garments whether they once did or never have. And you're wasting a lot of your time worrying what someone chooses to wear for whatever purpose.

I made a sarcastic remark back to their sarcasm. How you missed that still gives me pause to wonder. But it was you that was being an ass as you didn't know what was being said.

It really is a scary thought for you, isn't it? When the lizards finally croak out a revelation, you will be standing inside a closet without a door.
They need a revelation about those garments too, they are hideous.

Proving the temple garments are bs? lol...plleaseeee. You never wore one. And if you knew anything about them, you would know you made a real *ss of your logic stating those wearing them were getting something special for their efforts. The garment (and certain patches sewn onto them) is mainly a reminder of one's commitments to striving to having a Christ like life. Very simple.

It's a hit here in Repressionville, the local comments on the DN fb page post are a sight to behold. One dear sister said naked barbies freak her out sooo much that when she sees them, she is prompted to throw them away.
And really, shouldn't mormon children have barbies in painted on garments ? I think a paint pen would work better than white out ..you know those crafty pinsters have it all figured out.

Those impure thoughts are such a burden, aren't they?

The only one that has personal paranoias proved beyond a doubt by them own self is you. You insanely fear the Mormons. You've created your own nightmare about them for lack of anything else happening in your life so it appears.

You are entitled to your opinion. However, so we are entitled to believing in our religion... and temple garments are part of our religion and our right to have faith in our religion.

Can you say that we have the right to practice our religion with out you focusing on our underwear?

You are entitled..until you start denying others rights. Then you lose.

Nomo have you ever read the Bill of Rights?
http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bil...

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

//
What you don't understand is the Church has not stepped out of its boundaries... STATING that Christians follow God's laws.

You are stating that the Church has stepped on your toes by following God's laws.

God says so many times in the Bible to testify of his truths "BOLDLY". The Church did that. You can't accept it... that doesn't make the Church wrong. It makes you wrong.

You have said "BOLDLY" that the Church Bishops will be required to marry gays together against what we believe. How is that right?

Now you fixate on undergarments and ridicule our faith and religion. Do you understand you are making a mockery of the freedoms of our Government?

One of those freedoms is the right to mock them. Do you understand that?

No, no one wants your nasty old bishops to marry them and you know it. Your religion became a joke when you went after minorities and TOOK their rights away..until then, no one really cared what you believed. And guess what..they're at it again in Hawaii, where hey started this sh1t in the first place. That "tolerance is a trap" thing works both ways.

The privilege of voting one's conscious in America is a matter of freedom, not a matter of denying others a right they feel they should have or are entitled to. If an issue is being voted on by the people, it's not about denying others whatever. That is a perspective of an extreme far left liberal socialist like you who feels everyone should be made to vote according to how you think and feel is right and well for all others regardless. Your socialism is next to communism where people are forced to accept the given thought of a single individual as yourself without a right to personal opinion and or objection. You're the worst thing to happen to this country. You're a socialist that would force others to vote as you believe what is right and good for others regardless.
