SALT LAKE CITY Maybe now, reporters, bloggers, outsiders and even many Mormons will accept that the Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not forbid drinking cola.

Yet growing up in the 60's, I got a beating for having a Root Beer. Though not a cola, my Dad considered it "close enough."

I remember when I was going through my first Temple Recommend interview and asking the Stake President about drinking Coke because a lot of members said it was against the Word of Wisdom. He said that it was not. That he, in fact, enjoyed drinking a coke when he went out to dinner. When going out to dinner with non-members, they would tell him he wasn't supposed to be drinking Coke. He then corrected them and used the opportunity to teach. I figured if he said it was okay, it was good enough for me.

With age comes wisdom. Maybe if you had listened to an adult, you could have avoided dancing in strip clubs and "working" in brothels.

There are some assumptions on your part in your post. Are we changing standards for conversation? I'm perfectly willing to discuss whithin in the boundries you want, but let's stick to one set. Now, I know you claim to say there is nothing wrong with the way a man makes his living, so are you saying there's a problem with where he makes his living?

You made an assumption that I need an adult to tell me what's okay. I just turned it back on you. If you had perhaps listened to an adult, perhaps you wouldn't have ended up working in strip clubs and brothels. I have three daughters and I certainly don't want them working in the sex industry. I, and their mother raised them to respect themselves. Now, when we were discussing where a person works, we were talking about "work ethic" and "moral ethic." You were confusing the two as one in the same, which they are not. You could be the best pole dancer in all of Las Vegas. You could always be on time; be willing to work double shifts; sell the most drinks; give the best lap dances; etc... The same would apply in a brothel. I would say that you had a strong "work ethic" because of how hard and well you worked. HOWEVER, working in that type of environment would tell me that you lack morals, or a "moral ethic" because of the type of industry you work. Girls/women who have morals would not work in those industries if they did, unless they were forced into it, which many are. Most numb their conscience working in the sex industry by using drugs and alcohol so they don't have to face and feel what they are doing to themselves. So, tell me, what's your story, Pearl???

I made no such assumption. I'm telling you don't need someone else to tell you whats okay. Your an adult. You obviously pride yourself on your knowledge, yet still look for guidance in others who probably know less than you. Why? When we were discussing where someone works, it was about mormons working in the gaming industry, which we agree was okay even though gambling is an abomination. I guess you assumed I stripped or maybe sold sex, but perhaps I was a musician or bartender or maybe even an accountant, i don't think that matters to you, right? Does it matter what I did for a living or where I did it? So, are you saying now mormons who work in casinos lack morals? What's my story? I'm an open book. I'll answer whatever you ask. Don't assume, I already made that mistake with you. Really, not trying to antagonize you just trying to understand you

Let me explain something to you about me, in case you missed it in one of my prior posts. I choose for myself. I have free agency and I use it. Just because I was asking for clarification during a Temple Recommend interview doesn't automatically mean I was asking permission, or someone to think for me. Now, once again, I don't think Mormons working in Casinos is wrong. I thought I was very clear on that. Furthermore, it makes no difference to me where a person works as long as it doesn't hurt or harm others. Or, that person is not being forced against their will.

I have no problem with mormons working in casinos either, we agree. I was just curious why mormons don't have a problem with it. Since they did at one time. But we do disagree about you letting someone think for you. Your need for clarification on what is best for you, as an adult by someone else is letting someone think for you

You are as incorrect about my asking for clarification as you were about what "work ethic" meant. Who said anything about clarification about what is best for me??? I suggest you go back and re-read what I wrote. In my over 30 years of being a member of the LDS Church, I have never stopped drinking Coke. Now, you, Pearl, did have a problem with Mormons working in Casinos. That's what started this whole thing. You said they had no "work ethic." Remember??? I do. You had no respect for them. Remember, I do. So, I disagree with you on all of it.

I don't kmow how many times I need to clarify to you that it makes no difference to me what a man does for a living. If a mormon thinks its okay to work in a casino, and does work in a casino I have no problem with it. I said I think someone, mormon or not who thinks the industry they work in is some god awful abomination, then that shows a lack of all kinds of character traits.

Btw - A lot of people need someone to tell them what is best for them. People make bad choices all the time. As a result, people are obese, or become diabetic, have heart problems, or many other illnesses, that's not even mentioning addiction problems. Which not only affects their health, but drives up medical costs. So, you might think you know what's good for you, but there are many who don't.

Well we have polygamy and blood oaths in our temple vows but can't have a coke.

It's ok for Brigham young to have 55 wife's but you can't have coke. That makes sense
