I love how they tell members what is ok for married husband and wife to do the bedroom. That just shows how far they intrude in members lives.

<quoted text>To be honest, Moroni isn't an issue to me. I know growing up Mormon that Mormons don't worship or pray to Moroni, so they aren't creating Saints like the Catholic do. I'm glad they use Moroni as their symbol, if they used crosses, I think it would be more deceptive because they really do set themselves apart from Mainstream Christianity. Moroni clearly shows that.
A gold statue on their temples and on so many books ect is a idol. If they were smart they would put Jesus up there. My new non denomination church teaches only from the bible. I love it! I grew up falling asleep in mormon church and the boringness is terrible.

Mormons believe in a prophet that claims to follow GOD. Why believe in a man when JESUS is all you need? This is the cult part of being a mormon...I have a problem with the book of mormon and the modern day prophet. That is NOT right. I have a problem with the horny men wanting more than one wife for his own sexual pleasures because he said GOD told him to.
You can't argue with Mormons about how they've been brainwashed. That would be the same as telling a Muslim suicide bomber not to blow up a building because its murder.

Again, a lot of what you claim we believe are lies. Visit www.lds.org or www.mormon.org and all of your questions about the Book of Mormon will be answered by those who have actually read it instead of those who have never even seen a real copy.

I dont treat him like a God. I do not pray to him or worship him. No brainwashing here. Just a Mormon christian..exactly how does the way I choose to worship have any bearing on your life ?

hmmm. I grew up in a baptist church that didnt allow me to bring my black friends to church with me and was constantly told I was going to hell. Quite frightening to be honest. Im glad you found a church you like. You wont see me telling you that your choice is wrong. We should all be happy .

The religious choice a person makes is personal, spiritual and only for them. You should learn that just as you made the choice to leave, others make the choice to come to or remain Mormon.

Jesus Christ Almighty you are dense and rather juvenile.
Why is it that you call us the sexual perverts when nearly every post you make is about sex ?
Being called juvenile by you is hilarious. You seem to chase your tail a lot.

Local church leaders have been encouraged not to ask married couples about their sexual practices. However, the chuch has not changed its position that oral sex is an "unnatural, impure, or unholy practice" and therefore it is prohibited under the covenant made in the temple to abstain from all "unnatural, impure, or unholy practices."

Putting a statue up their shows you put him before Jesus. How can you not see that? Maybe not worship but your super temples show who is more important.

Well your fellow members won't quit harassing my front door to preach and ask for money, my workplace coworkers on their beliefs about everything, my son in scouts being pushed to say prayers in scout meetings and go to church to help excel in scouts, my neighbors dirty looks when I'm working in the yard on Sunday, the list goes on and on. They are truly Christians.

I'm talking the Mormonism of Mormon, not you as a person. How many talks in church have you heard in the last year about what Jesus taught in the bible compared to bom talks?

That being said, there is no other religion who views any sexual activity outside the bonds of marriage as permissible, including masturbation. I know of no Church who views it as acceptable behavior.

I can honestly say that in all my years in the church I have never heard oral sex be addressed.

Being that our lives are centered around living as Jesus would, I have heard many.

I hear what you are saying but I have never experienced that. We have several non members in our scouts and I rarely ask that they offer a prayers because I dont want them to feel uncomfortable. So I ask them quietly when the other boys cant hear, if they would like to. I do that so they do not feel left out or not included. I see no problem with that. I cant imagine anyone would.

How is this talk catching me in "another lie"? This talk was about being and remaining chaste until marriage. There is nothing in it that I did not already say is not talked about. It was NOT totally dedicated to masturbation. There is nothing in it that any other Christian faith would not say. My point to you was there has never been a talk solely dedicated to the topic of masturbation. If it is talked about, it is in context. Just as this one. I think he did an excellent job with a very difficult and sensitive subject. He also knew he'd be ridiculed for it...

"Many in the world would, I'm sure, be amused by this counsel. Let them be amused. They live by another standard, a lower one. We live by the Lord's standard and continue to teach it."

Nuff said.

Of course I do.
You believe that Mormons, instead of being the criminal child abusing greedy grifters that most people think you are, are the chosen people.
However, the chosen people are not criminal child abusing greedy grifters so that would not be the case.
Also, the chosen people do not have lying scumbags, secretive, deceitful, tax-dodging, draft-dodging, yellow-bellied, cowardly, animal-abusing, assaulting and battering weirdos as their leader...as you do. The chosen people do not wear green aprons over their genitals and think ingesting caffeine is a big deal. The chosen people do not think of sex and procreation every hour of every single day as you do.
I know you feel superior as Romney does and that you piss on the USA as he does.
I know you. It comes through in your delusional, self-righteous posts.
wow.... You really have no clue. Its sad. I almost feel sorry for you. I wonder how many people you hate and dismiss because of your absurd steriotypes. You are so full of hate and judgement.

Romney, utter filth, laughed about the death of the Navy Seal and used that death for his campaign.
