That seems to be some rather basic knowledge. Thats like not knowing who the first pope was if you are a catholic. "Nobody can know everything" is still an ignorance by choice. And its a ludicrous statement...
I agree that it would be ignorance by a choice. But most LDS people learn so many important things every day and have very busy lives so they have to make a priority.

Theology and history. Drinking Beverage

Oh and racial relations (though they have been half ass covering that up so the more liberal members can lie and say it never happened) and we can't forget the bigotry still espoused by the church in fighting equality.

Not the trouble he got into as a teenager, no.

No, not knowing obscure history of Joseph Smith's teenage years is not comparable to not reading your religion's sacred literature.

I agree, but should you be wagging your finger at these people when you evidently took trips to other cities to investigate this matter and still came away ignorant of the actual history?

As long as you're an atheist on an atheist discussion board passing misinformed judgment on my religion and its members, you'll have to learn to deal with it.

I would prefer if you would just take my word for it on matters related to Mormonism. It will save us all a lot of time.

You flippantly dismissed my explanation of the situation, which I don't find to be particularly honest or innocent.

We're on a discussion board where I have been repeatedly and directly accused of having mental handicaps and psychological disorders. We're on a discussion board where I am routinely called ignorant about religion and its secular study despite me being the only person here of whom I'm aware that actually has multiple advanced degrees in the field of religious studies. We're on a discussion board where my integrity, my honesty, and my understanding of the natural world is impugned and derided on a daily basis. We're on a website where you have admitted you have no real exposure to Mormonism or its members, but are presuming to explain to me the actual and true history of my religious heritage. And in spite of all this, you're complaining that I'm being condescending to you?

I guess that I should be flattered that on an atheist discussion board ostensibly full of educated atheists who know better than the unwashed religious hoi polloi, the only real complaint that all the atheists have about me is that I condescend to them and it hurts their feelings.

If all you emotional adolescents are really going to post so frequently here about how stupid, uneducated, deluded, and intellectually handicapped all us knuckle-dragging theists are, and then cry like a little girl with a skinned knee every time someone points out your naivety without holding your hand and stroking your hair, you really need to grow the hell up.

RE: 12 Reasons You Should Reject Mormonism
So translation: I am arrogant and condescending because I have supposed advanced degrees in religious studies and all you heathen atheists should yield to my "authoritai" and don't bother me with trivial questions. Yet, I shall remain on this forum so the nature of Jesus may shine bright through my self-righteousness and douchebaggery.


Disengage people.

Fwiw, as a former lds, I have never come across an asshole such as this before or after deconversion. 99% of them are pretty awesome and caring people in my experience. I have remained close friends with many.
