Joseph Smith makes the news
Must be a slow day in the newsroom: CNN Article

My favorite quote from the article:
"According to the church's essay, Smith had not wanted to take multiple wives, but relented after an angel appeared to him three times between 1834-1842. On the angel's last visit, the church said, "the angel came with a drawn sword, threatening Joseph with destruction unless he went forward and obeyed the commandment fully."

Imagine an angel hounding you for eight years, demanding you marry as many women as possible. What a conundrum!

If Jesus died for our sins, why is there still sin? If man was created from dust, why is there still dust? If Americans came from Europe, why are there still Europeans?

Good ol' Joe! Standing tall to take one for the team. What a guy!

I also liked the part about how just because he married them didn't mean the marriages were actually consummated. Right, Joe.

Dodgy

I don't even know what to think about this, because it's just wrong on too many levels.

So he was either a relunctant perv or god's an ass.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I'm saying this the next time someone complains about people looking at porn.

I'll tell them an angel came to me and told me to. Then, when they say I'm lying, I'll get all defensive and start talking down to them in a condescending fashion. I'll demand they prove me wrong and passive-aggressively insinuate that they are lacking in "true" faith.

And then, once all is said and done, I'd facepalm, because they would have missed the irony of the whole thing, and nothing would have been learned.

I'm not buying the "reluctant" part.

Not only did he screw around with these women, but many of them were close friends of his first wife, and she was totally against his philandering with HER friends. How would you feel if your S.O. not only told you Jebus wanted you to mess around, but he did it with YOUR best friends. What a fucktard.Weeping

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Unbelievable. I read this today earlier on CNN and after reading it again I'm still flabbergasted. This is the kind of mental brainwashing you attempt on your wife to get her to be okay with you bedding whomever you want but still all the while keeping her only to yourself. We still see this today! This stuff has been going on since the caveman days I'm sure.

I can see it now about 250,000 years ago, a male Neanderthal falls in love with a beauty but after landing the digits a few times the lust wears off and his obsession with said beauty mysteriously begins to lighten up while another beauty begins to attract his attention. Go figure. What to do? He doesn't want to risk losing his beauty to Sam the extremely obnoxious male Neanderthal who lives across the field and who has been CLEARLY eyeing his beauty but you can't have your cake and eat it to can you? Well with naivety sure you can! Just claim a spirit from the lord in the sky TOLD YOU that you were the chosen one and received explicit directions that YOU are to bed all the beautiful female Neanderthal's in the village so the lord can spread his majestic seed through you with the support of the females to help you do so. If the females help they too can become blessed! Resolved! Laugh out load

Smith being a polygamist isn't the actual news here; we all knew that shit already. The news here is that the Mor(m)ons are actually admitting it.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
