<quoted text> I can agree with this part of your comment. My father was not a fan of any organized religion for that very reason. He believed there were Christians in most religions but just as many bad apples.
After agreeing with the other poster that the entire mormon whatever it is is hardly Christian, I just mentioned that the same thing is true for all those fundie christianists running around.

We know what your beliefs are, and we know what the bigotries of the mormon whatever it is are.

Your spam does not refute the observation that the mormon whatever it is is polytheistic.

If the insane baptism by proxy thing - not christian - shouldn't bother anyone then we need to get some wiccans to start doing spells on specific, named mormon whatever it is members of present and past...to make them wiccans. Or maybe some voodoo priests. Or some Scientologists to do their thing on dead mormon whatever it is members. See how you freeeks like it.

The only thing I care about regarding this is your claim now to be Christians (this wasn't true in the past), when your theology, and practices are decidedly NON-Christian. As long as you maintain this theology and these practices, claiming that these are Christian, and that Mormons are Christians, IS A LIE.
THAT'S the ONLY reason I care about these things.
I claim to be Christian because I am a Christian, Your opinion of that, does not change what I am.

Yes I do, however it does not define me as a person. I am not just Mormon. I am a working mom, a friend, a human rights activist, a lover of people. I strive to raise children who will be giving, loving and kind. A persons religious beliefs should not matter.

Why are you so angry? And what part of my postings is spam? When you come to a public forum , you surely know that members of our church will also be here.
I honestly don't care what any other religion does in my name. I don't share their beliefs, so I don't see how their practices would have any effect on the salvation of my soul.

<quoted text> It is our belief that our souls are the same in the after life as they are here. Our personalities don't change. You seem well versed in our beliefs so you likely already know that we believe that souls that have not been baptized here on earth , go to a spirit "prison" of sorts. Here they are again taught the gospel and it is up to them to accept it. Some , even in the afterlife will not. For them , our baptisms by proxy will not matter because they do not want it.
But for those that have accepted and want it, we have allowed them to move on to the kingdom they have inherited.
So my response would be, if you don't believe that our practices make a difference to your eternal salvation or damnation then who cares?
If someone of another religion performed a ceremony in my name out of a true love for me , even if I didn't believe the same as them it wouldn't bother me.
so a baby would be a drooling, self shitting, unformed soul for eternity? that sounds more like hell.

but then my parents best friends are mormons, so they probably pray for me so i might go to mormon heaven, which would really seem like hell to me.....no drinking, no coffeee, but chocolate, go figure the theological lie involved in that one...)no fun...just hell...

What fear? I was not raised in the Mormon church. I was raised Baptist, So I guess they would be the "cult" responsible for teaching me about a soul. You believe there is no soul? Great!! I believe there is.

so then that has absolutely nothing to do with "you" so "you don't go on living at all. in any way...

and of course this is all myth so moot point...the god of the bible has been proven false, just like every other man-made god...but hey, you cult freaks keep having fun being lied to!

you won't. when you die that is it..just like every other creature alive...

yes, most people's "faith" is just hedging their bet against the cult lie about your "soul". preying on your greatest fear to garner great wealth and power...and you support this.with your fear and false faith and money...good job, sheeple!

That still doesn't answer the question posed.

Where do YOU stand on polygamy and raising your daughters up to be sex slaves.

They are still Mormons doing this. Has that sect been excommunicated from the church? Has the church publicly spoken out against this practice?

I seriously do not know, so please be informative and not dismissive.
