That's not exactly true. There is still debate about that.

jedi basically you're going to very swiftly find out that if Robertson says it, it's likely, easily refuted.

Obama, at a Denver rally Thursday afternoon complete with teleprompters, ripped into Romney as he tried to brush himself off and reassure supporters.

Yes, he was last night. That's for sure!

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/10/04/mit...

But the line of the night that completely emasculated Obama was,“Yes, Mr. President your spending does show your priorities. You spent $90 billion on green energy tax breaks. That’s like 50 years of tax breaks to oil companies. You gave $90 billion to companies like Solyndra. You could have hired 2 million teachers with that money.”
Bullseye.

In the end Jim Lehrer had the best line of the night when he tried to stop Obama from going over his allotted time. He said,“Mr. President, your time is up.”

How prophetic.

Lol, yeah sorry I've been poking in and out of this conversation. Someone asked if I was Atheist.
I don't even really know where you guys are trying to take this anymore.
Just seems like a whole lotta mormon pride and hate?!
Not very productive by any means.
I totally agree. I tried to get people talking about the actual doctrine of the church, but a lot of people are fixed on name calling, use of trashy language, and publishing libel. What is really sad is that people on both sides of the fence are guilty of it.

Romney looked and sounded like a president. He showcased his CEO leadership skills. Obama was depressed, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, and fumbling throughout the night. He wasn’t presidential, even though he IS the president. He was a man out of his league.

I admit it. I'm guilty of it. However, I stated that fact from my very first post when I saw that they weren't interested in actually learning what we believe and why. If "they" really wanted to know, they could go to www.mormon.org to investigate. That being said, brother, you did a fine job of being sincere in your posts. I was very impressed.

Are you serious?... lol

I'm not sure if you realize this but the missionaries are all over the world and the Church is not only for pure whites. That's ridiculous.

I realize everyone has different experiences... but your observations nor experiences disproves the Gospel. The Gospel is purely a document (many documents) to preserve the history of what occured and the commandments given to us to obey.

Keep in mind many documents are required to preserve the history over time and from place to place.

Isreal couldn't have written the document preserving the meso-amercian journey and their experiences.

Thus, came about the Bible and the Book of Mormon. There are more writtings out there that have not been revealed to us yet.

No, that's not the way it is due to the Mormon religion. It may seem that way from your stand point. You may only be witness to a community say. IDK what your situation is.

However, women and men are created equal in God's eyes. The Gospel states over and over that it takes a man and a woman... and that they work on becoming one.

Becoming one means equal.

---

For instance, if a culture (not the religion) is gender baised OR racist... whatever, that may be what you are portraying as the religion being the cause not the culture.

But, if you step out of your situation and just say look across the Nation or the World... you will see it is a cultural thing not a religious thing.

---

Mormonism does not mean perfection. It means we are people with standards trying to make our way back to Heavenly Father the best we can.
