Now that’s how you eviscerate a religion.

Love this paragraph from page 33

"I've been asked once by an LDS apologist if I would be okay with Joseph Smith's polygamy and polyandry if I received a witness that God really did command Joseph Smith to participate in these practices. The question is not if I would “be okay with” God commanding Joseph Smith to secretly steal other men’s wives and to marry underage and teenage girls. The question is “Do I believe that God did such a thing?” The answer, based on comparing D&C 132 to what actually happened, along with my personal belief that there is no such thing as an insane polygamist god who demanded such sadistic, immoral, adulterous, despicable, and pedophilic behavior while threatening Joseph’s life with one of his angels with a sword...is an emphatic and absolute “no.”

Just keeps getting better...

"As a believing Mormon, I tried to rationalize some of the craziness by saying, “Oh, this is in the crazy Old Testament when the Law of Moses was in force. Christ came and fulfilled the Law of Moses.”

The problem with this is that the crazy god of the Old Testament was Jehovah. Who’s Jehovah? The premortal Jesus Christ. So, Christ is the crazy god of the Old Testament. The Christ of the Old Testament and the Christ of the New Testament are light years different. Again, I’m asked to believe in not only a part-time racist god and a part-time polygamous god but a part-time psychopathic schizophrenic one as well.”

Laugh out load

Holy shit!

“Some things that are true are not very useful + It is wrong to criticize leaders of the Church, even if the criticism is true + Spying and monitoring on members + Intellectuals are dangerous + When the prophet speaks the debate is over + Obedience is the First Law of Heaven = Policies and practices you’d expect to find in a totalitarian system such as North Korea or George Orwell’s 1984; not from the gospel of Jesus Christ."

I propose we start a new religion where we worship this letter. Bowing

All xtians are stupid but mormon is a special class of stupid.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

It has to suck balls to belong to a religion whose embarassing origins aren't lost to antiquity. I had Mormons visit last weekend while I was out gardening. They left... Disappointed.

I forget where I first ran across that lovely vivisection. It may have been posted here. I owe somebody a big thanks though.

In my head I hear the last part of your post "They left...Disappointed" in exactly the same timbre as the old guardian knight in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" when he says "He chose....poorly"
