"Who's going to protect the rights of Christians and religious people? That's the question that has to be answered...." says Tony Perkins, head of the hate group Family Research Council.
Uh, Mr. Perkins, the vast majority of Christians in this country are not fundamentalist, bigoted jerks like yourself. I think what you meant to say is, "Who's going to protect the rights of right wing fundamentalist jerks who parade their faux religion on their sleeve in hopes of keeping their paycheck coming?...". There. Fixed that for ya.

Yes, Mormons believe that they get their own planet and 75 virgins (more than the Muslims get) after they die.
Martin Luther said it.
I believe it.
That's good enough for me !

As usual, Perkins is asking the wrong question. The RIGHT question is "WHAT'S going to protect the rights of Christians and religious people?"
And the answer is "The Constitution", the same document that protects the rights of non-Christians and non-religious people as well as those Christians and religious people who disagree with Perkins' twisted interpretation of scripture.

They fail to mention that the 75 'Virgins' are sheep

LOL, What IDIOT says Mormons will get their planet. This person needs to READ their BIBLE and perhaps the Book of Mormon.
DEGREES OF GLORY, differing kingdoms in heaven. At the final judgment, each person will be assigned to an eternal dwelling place in a specific kingdom of glory, except those who are sons of Perdition.
Jesus said, in my Father's house are many mansions, John 14:2 (Ether 12:32). There is one glory of the sun, and another of the moon, and another of the stars, 1 Cor. 15:40–41. Paul was caught up to the third heaven, 2 Cor. 12:2.
Celestial Glory, the highest of the three degrees of glory that a person can attain after this life. Here the righteous will dwell in the presence of God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. The glory of the celestial is one, 1 Cor. 15:40
Terrestrial Glory, the second of the three degrees of glory in which people will dwell after the final judgment. Paul saw a terrestrial glory, likened to the glory of the moon, 1 Cor. 15:40–41
Telestial Glory, the lowest of the three degrees of glory in which people will dwell after the final judgment. Paul saw a glory of the stars, 1 Cor. 15:40–41.
What this means is that the really good people will go to the celestial Kingdom to be with God and Jesus. The good people will go to the Terrestrial Kingdom. The not so good people will go to the Telestial Kingdom. We all know where the bad people go.
As far as Tony Perkins his crowd and the so-called “Right wing Christians (Conservatives) we know their idea and plan. To try to and pass laws that FORCE ALL of us to live, believe, and do as they say. In other words we can have our Freedom of Religion as long as it is within their definition of religion and how to worship. No Thanks
I like true Freedom of Religion and the right to worship the way I want.
Jesus’ Plan of Salvation was to give ALL of US the choice to “Choose How, What, Where, and when, we believe.”
It was Satan who said he would FORCE ALL of to believe, live, and worship only ONE way.

Knock off with the Scientology spam in here, sister.
It's too insane. We are discussing the bizarre beliefs of polygamists here. Keep on topic.

Ms. Johnson, perhaps you need to read the Bible yourself:
"Let a woman learn in silence in full submission. I permit no woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she is to keep silent. For Adam was formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor." (1 Timothy 2.11-14)
You are apparently a "Cafeteria Christian" who simply picks and chooses what best suits her from among the Scriptures. Kind of reminds me of ... Tony Perkins.
