Mormons are only "Christians" by proxy. The Qur'an and the Christian Bible was an expansion and edited work of the Jewish Tanakh. The Book of Mormon is a many times edited expansion of the Christian Bible. Calling a Mormon a Christian is not much different then calling a Christian or a Muslim a Jew. There are a lot of commonalities but a few big differences that drive a wedge.
You've made an excellent point!
But using your logic of "differences", that would make modern Christianity a proxy to ancient Christianity. There are commonalities but many big differences. Modern Christianity is as different to ancient Christianity as Mormon Christianity is different to modern Christianity.
An excellent point you've made.

This boils down too, if anyone believes in the LDS shame on you. The LDS is bullshit and it's sad that you adults are to stupid to see the real truth. You want to live a bullshit life giving your money to a bullshit religion than all I can do is laugh at all the idiots in the word and what is funny is the joke falls on you and if you believe their bullshit then it's time to grow up and start using what god gave you and that would be your brain..
Well, there are a lot of homosexuals that believe and attend the LDS church. In spite of the doctrine against homosexuality, they'd probably say shame on you for your judge mental attitude of claiming they live a bs life with the religion of their choice.

Yes, Mormonism is a religion of fear, no disagreement there. Fear based on ignorance, ignorance leading to hate. That is the bases of all bigotry and racism.
<quoted text>
So you again justify the hatred. The LDS church is the blame for teaching that fear.
well in that case, the idiocy of your logic can be used against the Christian God to show all his commands are fear based also. Thus his commandments along your idiocy of logic shows he's a God of fear based on ignorance, ignorance leading to hate. thus the base of all bigotry and racism. I mean he did set forth and endorse cursings of every type you can think of, some from generation to generation. He did endorse slavery and he did call all humans dogs except his chosen Israelite people.
Nice point :)

You seem to be having a problem with reality in this thing. So let's say it one more time for you okay?
I wrote a post. NoMo responded to that post. But NoMo's response to my post had nothing to do with what I wrote. Do you understand? I mean it's white knight nice of you to stick up for NoMo and all, I'm sure she's impressed you'd do that for her. But your sticking up for her in a lost cause. I wrote one thing and she responded about something different. Are you understanding that concept? You haven't understood it as far as you have proved so far.

But that isn't hatred of homosexuals at all, is it? Just like you saying they should stay in the closet instead of dealing with the bullies and hate mongers created by your church. What a sick religion you have, the more it changes, the sicker it gets.
Your funny :)
What's sick is adults like you and NoMo and Haw for classic examples that urge little immature minds, no more sure of their sexual orientation then we are of tomorrow's events, to be that supposed sexual orientation. That's sick and disgusting and degenerative in thinking let alone doing.
Those little minds have listened to your urging, put on their sexual orientation as homosexuals and some have died in their attempt to identify with it while still being little immature minded children.
You and NoMo and Haw are as responsible for their suicides as much as any one else is responsible. You essentially gave a loaded weapon to a little child and told them to go play cops and robbers and they got shot in the process.
Your a filthy, degenerative killer of children, leading them to believe they are homosexual and should be a homosexual, before they were adult enough to handle their sexual orientation as an adult.
You're the worst piece of sleeze that exists for these children. You're worse then the bullies and negative experiences they face. You're an enemy they don't understand. You're killing them for your cause and you don't give a rat's ass.
Nice job. You must be so proud of your deathly accomplishments.

This is where you're playing up your stupid self as usual. The LDS church is anti-homosexual as they're anti-adultery and anti-premarital sex, etc. But your consistent willful ignorant stupidity won't allow you to know the difference between the words "anti" and "fearful". So I spelled it out for you in the most basic way I could. Do you understand the difference?
The LDS church has "anti" stances. Now of many LDS parents like many non-LDS parents you would be correct, that they are "fearful" or homophobic of a child they hope would marry and have children turns out to be homosexual. Get the difference?
The LDS promotes after-death sex.

Now THAT is weird and why Mormons are ANTI-Christians.

Yes, they live a sad life tithing to a church that hates them. That is like blacks donating to the KKK or Jews to the Neo-Nazis.

God, you are immoral.

You deny human beings the right to be themselves. You shove people you dislike into the closet and expect them to subscribe to your narrow-minded, bigoted religion.

You are very sick and quite evil.

Your liberal agenda and total ignorance betrays you. In fact, the LDS Church denies no one the right to be themselves. Every person has the right to free agency, unless the Government where a person lives dictates otherwise, like North Korea. No one is shoved into a closet and told how to live and act. As far as California is concerned, the people voted on it. So, obviously, there were others who were like minded in protecting the sanctity of marriage, not just the LDS Church. The people who belong to the LDS Church freely chose to, no one was forced. You, however, are trying to dictate the way I, and others, think and live. As long as we live in a free society, that will never happen as much as you hate it.

Which is why Mutt Romputz does this:

"Hayes was deeply insulted. She told him she would never surrender her child. Sure, her life wasn't exactly the picture of Rockwellian harmony, but she felt she was on a path to stability. In that moment, she also felt intimidated. Here was Romney, who held great power as her church leader and was the head of a wealthy, prominent Belmont family, sitting in her gritty apartment making grave demands. "And then he says,'Well, this is what the church wants you to do, and if you don't, then you could be excommunicated for failing to follow the leadership of the church,'" Hayes recalled. It was a serious threat. At that point Hayes still valued her place within the Mormon Church. "This is not playing around," she said. "This is not like 'You don't get to take Communion.' This is like 'You will not be saved. You will never see the face of God.'" Romney would later deny that he had threatened Hayes with excommunication, but Hayes said his message was crystal clear: "Give up your son or give up your God."

That is your definition of freedom? You can live as you please but the POTUS is an entirely different story.

The GOPOX keeps hating Muslims and claiming that staunch Christian Obama is one. Hey, guess what, the rest of us can distrust Mormons and understand Mutt for the ANTI-Christian he is.

My comment to you still stands, and your farce of a story is a mere anti-Romney for President tactic by using his faith as a scapegoat to promote fear to the unknowing and uneducated. Your liberal agenda has been clear from your very first post.

Yes they might live the LDS lifestyle for a while until they realize that the LDS is bullshit and they have screwed up their life. It's really sad that you all just turn your head at all the things the bullshit religion does to people and once again it's really sad that you all are so stupid and you don't realize that the joke falls on you. So why you go around passing judgement on others the real joke is on yourself. Maybe if you was to pull your head out of your ass and find the true meaning of the word love you might just see your life in a new prospective.. Instead of always passing judgement on others and listening to bullshit of the LDS.. BTW, I'm trying to educate you all but once again you are to stupid to see my meaning... So the LDS can just kiss my ASS. Try having respect for yourself, you might just like yourself..

The only thing you are "educating" us of, is your intolerance and bigotry.

Thanks for sharing!

The average member of the LDS Church is FAR less judgmental than you.

Either you are lying about Hayes, or Hayes is lying.

Either way, Islam is the greatest danger facing the free world today.

Re-electing Obama, with his record of failure, is ludicrous.

Romney is by far the better choice.

There you have it.
