Mormon Caffeine Policy Clarified, Coke And Pepsi Officially OK For Latter-Day Saints

Mormon Caffeine Policy Clarified, Coke And Pepsi Officially OK For Latter-Day Saints

“Oh yea and we are not ANTI gay as someone posted. WE are ANTI SEXUAL Sin, had my husband and i had sex before we got married, we would have faced the same consequences as two men or women sleeping together. You can be gay and be a member of the Church, just like you can be straight and single and be a member.”

“So how do you explain the millions of dollars and all the volunteers that the Mormon church sent to defeat Prop. 8 in California? You have no right to impose your religious beliefs on the rest of us.”

“So what you're saying is that once gay marriage is legal, the church won't have an issue with gay sex? Once they are married, it's no longer sexual sin? What about the LGBT individuals who are married in states where it is legal-are they ok?”

“This is not new, I have been a member for my entire life and my family drinks soda just like anyone else. Some members of the church think that soad is bad but the Word of Wisdom only states hot drinks. The church treats women very well, we hold leadership position and participate the same amount as the men do. My husband is black and we were married in the LDS Birmingham Temple and we have never been treated badly because of him being black. What i dont understand is why people dont see that the LDS church is the only church that all these evangalic people bash. If i was not a member i would be wondering what is so special about the LDS people that we have to bash them yet we dont bash anyone else. The LDS church is the only church that teaches NO ONE goes to Hell, everyone gets a kingdom of glory... What its about is money. These churches pray that their members continue to come to pay their lifestyle and bills because they get paid for everything they do and if they dont have members then the preachers would have to get a read job like everyone else. FYI, No ONE in the LDS church gets paid a DIME to serve FULL TIME. Did Jesus get paid?? Nope. Pepole just dont like how family orientated we are and how sucessful we are in business and life in general!!”

“My husband was raised LDS and like other churches it is about the money. He was in the bishopric when a letter came down from the first presidency that said during the temple recommend interview they could give a recommend to someone who had committed sins but if you hadn't coughed up your 10% tithe there was no way you were going to temple. Also you stated the LDS don't get paid. I used to think that too but guess what the higher ups do. They get credit cards, expense accounts, cars, apartments, homes, trips just like any other corporation in America. The people who clean the toilets get nothing. That's why they can say no one gets paid. The members who work their butts off get paid nothing but the first presidency and apostles enjoy a corporate executive's lifestyle provided by the members.”

“Actually I liked how family oriented the Mormon church was, even though it didn't help our family one iota and when I left the faith, my extended family completely disassociated themselves from me. So much for Families Can Be Together Forever. Not ALL families, just all MORMON families.

And my faithful parents are poor, very unsuccessful in business. My father had a hard time staying employed and couldn't report to female bosses without getting written up or terminated for insubordination. My mother became unemployable from the moment she got married and decided to take the Prophet's advise and make home her complete and only focus.

And there is such a thing as Hell, it's called Outer Darkness. I knew all about it. And lastly... women are not treated as equals in every subtle and not-so-subtle way possible. All women leaders are overseen by male leaders. Women don't get into husband without a man calling her name.”

“Many symbols have been used for good and evil. You imply we are satanic, explain to me how worshiping Christ is satanic? I guess you must be a satanic follower and are worried about competition, which you don't have to worry about the LDS. Most cults have catholic origin, but I'm sure you'd be arguing this point if Rick sanatorium were GOP front runner. But I guess the topic would be sex with little boys and doing so for the past 2000 years and brushing it under the rug. The earth is filled with humans, which means there are wicked people everywhere. Tolerance is a two way street. No religion is flawless because we are human that is why we have a savior to help right our wrongs. God bless you!

We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.

“You realize that the LDS has its own hidden sex with little ones history? And you would plump out your chest that yours do it better including coverup.

you say "We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may. "

So let me ask why is it mandatory to go door to door attempting conversions for two years?

“Coward, obviously you are so weak in your beliefs, you will not stand for what you believe but rather try and tear others down. All and all I think you anti Mormon people can't stand the fact that members of the LDS church are so dedicated, are good people and prosper like they do and follow the command of Loving One Another. I will pray for you that you will be happy and be blessed with what your heart desires. God loves you and I hope one day you can get rid of your pride and be tolerant of others and what they believe.

“Kaap, you don't care about Jesus Christ? Are you not waiting for a Messiah to come? The LDS church did baptize Jews and they have apologized, but if you think we are so"crazy" why do you care what we do? If its not real and means nothing why do you care?

“Of course I don't: I am J ew ish. No I am not waiting for anyone to come. I love how you parse language or else you are the third string you only apologized for those who perished in the Shoah but you have continued to do it and apologize since the first agreements were mediated by individuals on behalf of their families in the 1990's and you have continued to get caught doing it ... but that is only for our families who died during the Shoah. It does not included any one else including Daniel Pearl. Even after all his family suffered and even after his last words.
It is offensive to us, we have thousands of years despite everything and we do not get baptized we find it to be an anathema to everything we are.
No, it is not real. But neither is a painting I might make of your deity doing something with a capybara's-dong in an orifice.”

KaAp on Apr 15, 2012 at 04:06:08

“No I do not care about JC it means nothing to me. And, no we are not waiting for a messiah. You have been apologizing for years and going back on your word and that is ONLY for those who died in the Shoah not for people like Daniel Pearl who was beheaded for who he was.
Why do I care? Because the word is offensive to us. It is nothing short of spiritual r@p e .
Worship whatever or whomever you want but do not expect me to vote for someone who would posthumously baptize others and who would deny other Americans their civil rights.”

You need to visit the South where racism still goes on in big old country boy baptist churches or the church of Christ. It is interesting to me that you spend so much time debating something you don't believe in.

People also forget the discrimination early LDS member went through for NOT supporting slavery. My own family were tared and feathered for treating slaves with equality. I can beat money no other white women and men in 1830's were being torchered for loving all people equally and giving them freedom in those types of numbers!

“Well, I guess you could start with the KSL news archives, call the major news outlets, CBS,ABC,NBC, as they all covered the story. Where I go to church has no relevancy in this discussion. Facts is facts, and the strawman arguement of past troubles for the LDS do nothing to dispell the history of the LDS. It takes years for organizations to admit lots of mistakes.

“Apples and oranges. We Jews have a different model than the LDS church. The LDS church has a central authority that collects money, is responsible for establishing churches and temples, as well as a theology that requires members to serve the church if they wish to remain in good standing. By contrast, Jewish institutions are generally autonomous and a Rabbi is often a full-time employee who leads services, teaches school, counsels congregants etc. While lay people certainly can, and do, lead services, we require our Rabbis to have a higher level of religious education and knowledge. This means full-time, in-depth study for many years. Each congregation supports itself with dues and contributions and part of that is paying a fair salary to a skilled Rabbi.”

And bishops, stake presidents, elders and apostles spend up wards to 40 hours on serving, in addition to work a full time job. Jesus didn't get paid why does a preacher, rabbi or minister.”
