Warren Jeffs
and
YOU

have in common with DANA ROBERTSON that ALL THREE of you think you know more about sexuality than the 12 Apostles of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

That's your prerogative to disagree, but don't pretend your churches and Jeffs churches are any different.

WE TOLD HIM and WE TOLD YOU: if you don't stop your rebellion you're going to get caught rebelling at what you shouldn't.

Your 50% divorce rate,
Your 50% WOMEN RAPED/MOLESTED rate,
Your 50% MEN ADMIT ADULTERY rate

says all you have to say about knowing how morality is practiced.

If you had any your social numbers wouldn't look like the employees of a bordello.

You just can't get the momentum right, to TELL the TRUTH, can you?

If you want to see the truth as to why you don't know what you are talking about, click this link and read it! I was mormon and did attend conference and I myself saw from the side the screens they read off of.

http://www.examiner.com/article/lds-general-c...

"Not only were the sermons teleprompted, I witnessed the Lord's anointed getting cues on their prepared prayers by artificial means. Everything was tightly timed, with the GAs supposed heartfelt petitions to heaven, as well as their ostensibly Holy Ghost-inspired sermons, precisely orchestrated and slotted into the overall script, so that the camera operators could, on cue, cut to commercial breaks, or to warm and fuzzy Red Square (er, Temple Square) vignettes, or to the chime of the Nauvoo Bell.[The Mormon Curtain—Section 6, Feb. 11, 2008]"

At each conference, since the year 2000, there are approximately 105 full-time and on-call employees who coordinate teleprompting, sound control, lighting, filming, directing, recording, translating, satellite broadcasting and more.

If Jesus himself were to return today, and address the faithful in General Conference, would he use a teleprompter? Would Paul, would Abraham? For that matter, would mother Teresa even or Gandhi? Why then, should the Leadership of today use pre-written speeches and teleprompters for delivery of their words!

Members of any church, expect to be and deserve to be, hearing from the “voice of the Lord.” Catholics believe the Pope is delivering God’s word as much as do Mormon’s believe their General Authorities are “the Lords mouthpiece.”

The other guy said they don't, but I'm pretty sure there are beds in all of them. People lie down on them and take naps.

The Mormon prophets used to LIVE in the temples.

So it's not illegal to own a bed, and I'm pretty sure, a little research is going to show they all have beds in them.

It still won't repair your marriage, or make your kids decent people.

They're going to be blind, stupid bigoted whores like you, and there's nothing you're going to do about that except gobble more dope.

Joseph Smith wrote that. Joseph also cheated on his wife Emma and married 33 different women and was sealed to them. If you believe what he wrote you must believe in practicing polygamy too. Joseph Smith was a false prophet. It warns in the Bible of false prophets like him.

It is when you are born that way. And it is possible because it has happened before when the church told it's members to turn their backs on their racist policy of denying blacks the priesthood. That was God's will also until 1978.

Being prepared isn't even unorthodox. It's the standard method taught in universities for mass communications.

Having a few blessings like university educations means we know what the teleprompters are.

See stupid, we invented the rasterized video screen, the technology you're reading on right now.

And we invented the Local Area Network.

You know the terms WAN and LAN?

We invented the one called LAN.

So if you're thinking you're going to be talking to the same class of people you come out of, No.

You're not talking to 10th grade education Mouth-Breather-Billies

like the average EvangelBilly.

The fact that you'd even try it shows how little you understand the concepts with which you've to do.

That didn't just start in the year 2,000. All talks given at General Conference have to be submitted for approval before the Conference to see that they are in harmony with current LDS beliefs. The teleprompters may be recent, but pre-approval is not.

Just because your dog humps your leg doesn't mean it was born queer.

You've already been reminded, that your coming here with a

predisposition toward an attitude is a result of attitudes you

developed before you got here.

Everyone has a presisposition to some sin, the way you have a predisposition to lie for no other reason than "you have a keyboard."

You have no compunction about it and indeed have MULTIPLE TIMES,

EXPRESSED SURPRISE, OTHERS DO.

That doesn't make God responsible because you can't tell the truth when IT would work better.

It just makes you a very likely, Sandusky-type molester who then

blames his victims.

Sandusky blames the victims for the people he molests,

You blame God, for the ones YOU molest.

It's the same thing.

Nope.

I never said they didn't use teleprompters. I said it was live and unedited. You're not very good at reading into what I say, are you?

Of course their talks are prepared, duh! Of course it has to run on a very tight schedule, again, duh! That doesn't mean it's not live and unedited.

So, what happened to you being an "active member" in one post on another thread, to "were a Mormon"? That was awful fast to go from "active" to "ex."

They don't have "beds" for what NoHo is implying. And, no, I've never seen a "bed" in any of the temples I have been in. I've seen and sat on couches. But, I've never seen anybody lying on them, only sitting.
