If Mormons are asked to prove they are Christian they must be right? Who is the gold statue on their temples? Not Jesus! It's Moroni the god
"If Mormons are asked to prove they are Christian they must be right?"
Is there a question there???
Funny how you don't even know who Moroni is and why he is atop every temple. You know, you being a member... errr ex-member... errr in between. No wait, never a member.

And Ann Romney isn't running for any office. She doesn't have to to prove a thing to anybody.

<quoted text>Since leaving Mormonism, I have never heard masturbation being ever brought up in any church I have attended.
It's only brought up within a context during talks given on chastity and staying sexualy pure. There has never been a talk solely dedicated to the topic of masturbation. 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.

It is only the Catholic church and the Mormon church that really speak out against it. You don't see the speeches against it like Spencer's claims it leads to homosexuality, or pamphlets being published against it with suggestions that the person actually be tied down at night so they can't do it. They are just not that overly concerned about the issue. And you certainly don't see preachers asking the teens if they do it, like you do Bishops.

I disagree. The other churches (Protestant) do not have Prophets that speak on behalf of their entire denomination. The Mormon Church and the Catholic Church do. Anything that is said about it at local Protestant churches are at the local level. For instance, in the small town in which I live, there are 23 Churches. The First Baptist Church being the most prominent. Inside their church you will find pamphlets on the dangers of pornography, chastity, sexual sin, etc. You might not be aware because their views are at a local level. It doesn't mean that they are not opposed to it, or outspoken against it to their congregation.

I had to have a meeting with the bishop for it once I learned how. He said its evil and I had to repent. Also couldn't take the sacrament.

The POS is running for POTUS. That is what the POS says.

She is a scumbag liar and we all know it. She lies about her MS to get sympathy because even Willard says he is tired of her and wants to limit the public's exposure to her so the public does not get as tired of her.

Get a load of this from your GodRomney the POS US military-hater:

Get a load of POS Romney laughing about the death of a Navy Seal as part of his standard stump speech.

The man's mother had to yell at the POS:

" He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda."

Of course heavenly father loves us all dummy. He gets to have actual sex with heavenly mother and uses us as his excuse.

LDS is not a church it is a political party and, as such, needs to have its tax exempt status revoked.

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.

What the hell is that bizarre popping fresh hat attached at the shoulder all about? I understand - and laugh about - the green apron.

I understand - sort of and am bemused by - the veil, the Temple ceremonites, etc.

I just do not get that popping fresh hat attached at the shoulder. Well, ok, what is with those white nun habits for the women?

"Naked touching in the Mormon Temple. Is it for real?"

Young girls married off.
Women treated as children and subservient to 12 year old boys.
Multiple marriages or multiple SEALINGS which is just the more modern and acceptable version of multiple marriages.
Harems.
Unlimited children.
Green aprons worn over the genitals.
Magic garments with Masonic markings over the left knee, the navel and both nipples.

I tell ya, LDS is one heck of a sex-obsessed political party...just as the GOPOX is.

Really, sex-obsessed and incredibly perverted:

"The first thing you go through when receiving your endowment for the first time is the washing and anointing. You strip naked and are given what is called a "shield" to wear. It's a big white oval of fabric, worn like a poncho, but open at the sides. It is true that you're not 100% naked, but I think that the difference is splitting hairs.(If you don't believe me, run out into the street with nothing one but a blanket over your head and see if they don't try to charge you with indecent exposure.)

The washing and anointing both consist of various parts of the body being touched by the fingertips of the temple worker performing the ordinance. They use a drop of water or oil on their fingertips, hence washing and anointing. They say a sort of prayer for the good health and function of each of the involved body parts. Unlike other priesthood ordinances, men wash and anoint men and women wash and anoint women.

The parts of the body include the head, each ear, the eyes (I think it was across the brow), nose (bridge), lips, neck (nape), shoulders, back, breast (center of chest if I remember right), arms and hands (touch in one motion along length of each arm), vitals and bowels (point on the side, I think), loins, legs and feet (touch in one motion along length of each leg). The loins are supposed to be done by touching the side of the person parallel to their genitals, but more than one man has reported that perverted temple workers directly rubbed down the front of their penises. They seem to try to get away with it more with first-time missionaries who are young and don't know better.

[Incidentally, I may have forgotten one or more parts.]

The ordinance is performed in a cubicle divided in quarters by sheet-like fabric covering the washing and anointing "rooms". Each space is barely large enough for two people. The first section is an anteroom, the second for washing, the third for anointing, the fourth for being clothed in the temple garments (underwear). In the last one, they have you step into a one-piece temple underwear garment."

exmormon ----- must be for a reason LOL
