The Mormons should lose their tax-exempt status.... Though, all religions should lose tax-exempt status on money they don't give back to the community, without aiming at conversion.

Every penny that a "religious" body puts towards political means should be taxed at the highest rate possible. When I tithe, it's not to fund a political agenda, it's to help others. To bad the churches don't see it the same way, or we'd have a lot of needy people in the world who are in dire straights.

1. The Mormons aren't Christians and NO Christian church recognizes them as such.

2. Why should their Non-Christian wacky religious views be imposed, thru civil law, on Christians and Non-Christians alike ?

It's ridiculous.

And unconstitutional.

They're whackos.

Since the Mormons surely treat others as they themselves would wish to be treated, we should oblige them by passing laws forbidding Mormons from marrying. Even one spouse this time, I mean.

Amen.

Mormom image suffers after gay marriage fight? Are you kidding? The Mormon image has been tarnished for over a century. They're no better than any other cult out there. They don't think that polygyamy and refusal to ordain black priests tarnished them beyond repair already?

They're a cult of hatred that attempts to spread their vile evil ways. Of course people in Utah aren't smart enough to see that. LOL

They give the Catholic church leadership a run for their money in terms of bigotry, corruption and immorality.

The Mormon Church and the Catholic Church are ABOMINATIONS and do not even promote the teachings of the bible anymore. They definately need to have their tax status taken away. If the Catholic Church can afford to allow the molestation of children and the multimillion dollar payoffs that come with it they can afford to pay their own taxes.

The mormon image is NOT suffering due to their opposition to gay marriage, but because their entire belief system is a built upon lies, polygamy, freemasonry, idolatry, and weird beliefs like their masonic underwear is sacred and they can become like little gods.

New York State's minimum age for ANYONE to get married is 14 years old.

Yet gay people still cannot legally marry in New York becauue the DEMOCRATS in the Senate forbid a debate on the issue.

Oh, you are thinking of the easter bunny. Easter is not about bunnies of chocolate. It is to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

I celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God and Savior of the World.

Bwahahahhahah

Mormons are not Christians. They are followers of false prophets (Joseph Smith, Gordon Hinckley, Thomas Monson, etc), in opposition to the One True Prophet, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. They follow the god of mormo, and practice masonic rituals, straight from the pit of darkness.

No, these groups are in bed together based only on expedient, shared bigotries. It'll be a one night stand. After all, how can one cult possibly stand the existence of another?
