If anything, Oaks would be considered a "celestial polygamist." Not a polygamist in the terms that you are inferring. He was married and sealed to his first wife in 1952, who passed away in 1998. In 2000, he then remarried and was sealed to his second wife. Are you inferring that he should have never been remarried because he was previously married to his first wife? Would that opinion hold true for every widowed person? No one should be allowed to remarry?

No. As a celestial polygamist(lol) what if those women don't want to be sealed to him...do they have a choice or are they stuck for eternity? What if they don't want to be sealed to a man? Are they doomed to the lower levels?

I've been here long enough to know that you rarely, if ever, answer questions posed to you. Yet, you expect others to answer yours when, in reality, you have no interest in hearing them. Your questions are only designed to mock and ridicule the beliefs of others which do not fall "lock step" with your own.

You rarely, if ever answer them either...so I really didn't expect an answer from you.

I have attempted to answer your questions in the past, but learned very quickly you weren't really interested in the answers. Only to mock, deride, ridicule, and jeer. The term "pearls before swine" comes to mind.

Sooo, I guess a conversation about mo-men who have divorced, remarried and are now sealed to two women is out of the question?

If you actually were interested in having a conversation, but since you're not... I would say so. BTW- Oaks was not divorced. His wife passed away.

Ahhh... You sneaky little monkey. That's where you were going all along, wasn't it? You're really not interested in widowers. You're interested in those who have been sealed, divorced, and resealed. Hahahahahaha!!!

No, actually I consider Oaks to be a huge pig and feel sympathy for those poor women who are now stuck with him for eternity. Can they be unsealed once they are all dead?

I have an aunt who has been sealed three or four times. Just goes to show everything is temporary.

I'm sure those "poor women," as you lovingly refer to them, don't agree with you, nor do they want, nor need, your sympathy. Other than that, are you now saying you believe in "eternal marriage"?

I'm asking what the rules are. I read a Helen Radkey article recently about Lds polygamy for the dead.

Unsealed and then resealed? Can you request to be unsealed to someone when you die, the thought of eternity with some of these misogynist creeps must really be disturbing for a whole lot of women.

I avoid answering questions? Really? Interesting...
Now, if you are/were sincere, then you should ask a Mormon. However, since you're not, and most here know you're not, then it really doesn't matter who you ask. You can ask a gas station attendant for all I care. Because it doesn't really matter.

So, I was watching the local news and they ran a story about a couple of guys who had a confrontation at one of the wards in Salt Lake City. Apparently two men were arguing over saving a seat. After the service there was an altercation in the parking lot of the church and the police became involved. One of the guys, maybe both, was arrested and charged with assault. I think they said something about one guy trying to run someone over with their car. Now I realize this could happen at any church or place of worship, surely it happens at St. Peters Basilica all the time, so I'm not trying to single out any Mormons, but I'm wondering, isn't being in church supposed to have that "power of Christ compels you" affect where you feel peacefully uplifted and have that good will towards man mindset. I know that it eventually wears off, but I keep picturing these two spuds flipping each other off and pounding their chest while the rest of the flock is giving testimony. These guys weren't young bucks either, both a little on the mature side as far as age goes. I have a hunch there was a woman involved. I'm also curious if there are consequences aside from legal ones. I mean as far as the church, or does this stuff happen all the time?

Oh, don't worry..the answers are just a google search away. And it's ok if you don't want to talk about all/any of the bs in your religion. It must be difficult with all the truth just a click away. I hope they keep the missionaries online and off those bicycles..they aren't safe.
