Well Curtis, our resident nutjobs say you were a lousy elder. They know because they studied up on this. One of them is an expert because he was an active Mormon for 3 WHOLE MONTHS! Got excommunicated after 3 yrs, why? Oh, that's a government secret, but god damn if he doesn't know just everything about you, what you were thinking, and what kind of member you were! He also thinks Joseph Smith married all those already married women just to hold their hands, never even kissed them goodnight, even if he was sleeping in the same bed they were.
But if you had just shut up, didn't think for yourself, did what you were damned told to do without question, you could still attend BYU. It's all your fault!
Also watch out for No Surprises girlfriend, sportsmouse/Carol. She will be here soon telling us how you left the church because you were a homosexual child molester. She's a wonderful member of the LDS church.
First. I am not Carol. Dana made that up.

You are the one who makes excuses and blames others to justify your inappropriate behaviors... all the while YOU pervert and molest the Gospel... taking and adding what you want from it... including the entire book of Genesis

and threatening that you yourself would:

-> "Crucify Jesus Christ himself" for teaching the things you don't agree with

-> "kill his HOLY Prophets"... then claiming God told you to do it

You in this very thread have called God the Father a "bastard", a "pig", "retarded"

You promote any sexual behavior including bestiality and encouraging people to act on their desires not God's..

<quoted text>Condescending? Really? That's interesting. And all this time I was shooting for more of a tres doux. So, why don't you tell me, since you know everything, even what is in another's heart, how do you think you come across in your posts? Wise? Thoughtful? Passionate? Or do you think there's a chance in hell you seem as though your medications are not being monitored?
I know everything? lol...I never said or implied any such thing. But it's interesting that as you claim dana's an animal and want me to confirm it you now claim I know everything. You seem to think you know more than you actually do. Most of your posts are very condescending and over sarcastic. Yet you think we are to address such sarcasm and condescending speech from you and to treat such speech as normal and common speech. And much of your speech mirror Dana's speech patterns for attempts at immature, childish sayings and foul things you think will injure someone's mental and or emotional well being.
I find evidence that you (though a tamer version) and dana are one and the same poster. If you're not, my bad ;)P

<quoted text>Yes dear, you did accuse me of being an impostor. Was I suppose to take you seriously and respond? I'm Pearl, named after the bastard child of Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesale from The Scarlet Letter. You're Pirate Fighting, Dana gets up at four thirty and feeds the poor, Not Ashamed is apparently the best example of a Christian, the two of you discuss church fashion. Crazy grew up in California and has three daughters and collects cans, but not beers cans. Cary Nichols is bear poop, No Surprise and Yourahick/Jerrysanduscky are, well trying to be Mormon. Now allow me to tell you how you seem. You have become like a precious jewel on this thread and sometimes one has to take you out of the treasure trove and just gaze upon you in absolute wonder. Remember the most mistrustful people are often those most easily taken in.
Nothing's wrong with your memory.

And, you did the best thing by not attending there under a lie. There are other colleges you can apply for that are not Christian oriented. I hope that you apply to a different college and continue your education.

Makes a lot of sense, since the Lotus is a symbol of creating, of becoming aware, of making new things, something that is very unique to the fifth element.

Here's Brahma, the creator god, on the Divine Lotus:

He was the first thing that was. Very interesting to make that reference to Spirit...or maybe Consciousness.

Though I am under the same impression as No Surprise regarding the poster.

That's because you are a homosexual child molester. If you're grooming the earth for them, you're equal to them in evils. They're the molesters of the earth which makes you exactly what they are. Molesters of the earth.

Of course the Mormons are Christians!

We have over three thousand different sects calling themselves Christian, all with different ideas of what being a Christian means.

The mormons are no different that any other cult that bases their religion on alleged prophets, so why should they not be allowed to call themselves Christian?

Is Joseph Smith any different than Jim Jones, David Koresh, Rev. Sung Mung Moon, the Pope, or any of the many other self proclaimed prophets who claimed to speak for Jesus and for God?

Christianity is whatever the prophets of the Mormon Church define it as. This definition is what Christianity is for their church members, no matter how ridiculous it might appear to be to people who do not wear magic underwear!

I have a feeling you didn't read my story very carefully. By February of this year, I already identified as atheist and had no fear of associating with the Occult as much as I wanted.

In 2009, before my mission, I was OPENLY interested in Tarot SYMBOLISM and in interfaith dialogue.(As I've already mentioned here). I liked looking into other religions and seeing how they related with Mormonism. At the time, the commonality found between the Tarot symbolism, other religions, and Mormonism was evidence for me of the truthfulness of Mormonism.(It wasn't until after my mission that I became open to the idea that the commonality of these things might just be because we're all human trying to describe natural, human experiences).

I didn't want to read Tarot before my mission, however. Just wanted to better understand its symbolism.

Please stop accusing me of being a liar. I think I know my transforming beliefs better than you do.

Apparently, yes. I mean, you brought it up again. And me being a "pompous ass" means I need to correct you, even if it is petty, right? I certainly wouldn't want to disappoint you, or the other regulars here. I have a reputation on this thread that needs to be upheld.

It's kind of interesting. I use my first and last name everywhere I go online.

But I have somebody using an anonymous name attacking my reputation and claiming that I have something to hide.

My! But what a mean, judgmental little rascal you are!

And of course if you consider yourself a Christian we should add hypocrite to that as well.

Here is a scripture for you to ponder. We read in Luke 6:35-36 :

" 35 But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

36 Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful."

Now then, arrogant squirt, who are you to dare to usurp God's place in judgment of your fellow human beings?

( I am saying this to you in a kind way. The kindly fonts probably don't show up on your computer.)

He's Mormon, Christlike, and one step away from godhood. What do you expect?
