I've worked with mormon's throughout the years.. never realized the kind of ridiculous bullshit they believed. makes me laugh.
Is this for real?
I hear he had a 20 inch penis
Jesus is superman 0.0
This is what a potential president believes, it's truly scary and before this I didn't realise how racist they were. crazy.
Jesus: saviour by majority vote
You know, I saw the original video this went with when I was in my elementary school years. It is a Christian video, but I had recently read that the Mormon church decried this cartoon as inaccurate. Perhaps if a mormon runs across this in the future as TA threads show up in google search, they can clear this one up. I hate to jump to hasty conclusions, with extra caution toward things I oppose.I had thought because it was regarding black people being cursed, but it is in the book of mormon, so I don't know what they are disputing.2 Nephi 5:21 21 And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even asore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they hadhardened their hearts against him, that they had become like untoa flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair anddelightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people theLord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them.
I should add that while the book of mormon is clearly incorporating uninspired racist assumptions, it isn't explicitly as racist as the singular verse referenced in the movie that I just posted, because another verse statesJacob 3:9 9 Wherefore, a commandment I give unto you, which is the word ofGod, that ye revile no more against them because of the darknessof their skins; neither shall ye revile against them because oftheir filthiness; but ye shall remember your own filthiness, andremember that their filthiness came because of their fathers.
This passage clearly has racist tendencies as well, but gives us a more well rounded approach to how it is possible to be non-racist and still be considered faithful to the Mormon religion,or how most mormons might have the capacity to not be racist even if their text has some texts of racist influence.
I found all of this by checking out the wikipedia article and then cross-referencing the verses with the verses from the sacred texts website, rather than just knowing this though.
