How evil. You can tell they are evil because across the mainstream organization they are currently issuing death warrants, murder innocents of a similar ethnicity and nationality to those who offend them and...

Oh, no wait. I had them confused with someone else. But who?

however caffeine IS allowed by Mormon's if it is in Green Tea format.

so basically act gay and be a mormon

Does this mean you have to drink caffeine free Mountain Dew? It tastes like urine smells.

How will the students stay awake in class? Seems short sighted...

Howard got involved with the "BYU for caffeine" Facebook group after hearing about that BYU dining services saw "no demand" for drinks on campus.

"BYU's reasoning wasn't accurate," Howard said. "We really hope to see a change. It's not about the caffeine, it's about the flavors."

Texas. This is just Utah, where drinking soda makes for a wild and illegal party.

'ffeine only really works the first few times anyway. After a while all you're doing is staving off withdrawal.

This is the result the LDS elders clarifying doctrine. It's not caffeine they abhor, but hot drinks.

Sprite.

Sprite everywhere.

not all hot drinks. for example Green Tea they drink. But Not Black.

Caffeine makes the world go 'round, but soda is pretty disgusting once you get used to not drinking it. HFCS just tastes WEIRD to me now. I'm screwed if (when) the world's coffee supply constricts.

If you attend a religious school, you have to deal with goofball religious edicts.

I can't imagine surviving college without coffee.

Fookin mormons. Go ahead and elect Romney so he can take away your soda and make you wear holy underpants.

Got to admire their willpower because I am totally addicted to caffeine.

Dudes, BYU is run by Morons. What did you expect?
 
2012-09-15 11:01:26 AM  
If it is really about the taste, there are a ton of sodas out there without caffeine. Boylan makes some delicious sodas. (Love the grape.) Why go for the soda that has one of the highest levels of caffeine?

Seriously? Is it really that hard for you guys to Google this?

The "Word of Wisdom" prohibits (as clarified by the church's Prophets) alcohol, tobacco, coffee, tea, and illegal drugs. That's it. The coffee/tea prohibition (as they'll tell you) has to do with tannic acid - not caffeine. Caffeine is actually cool; hot cocoa is a favorite Mormon drink. Herbal teas are okay, too. But green tea is prohibited, as is black tea. Anything with camellia sinensis is a no-no.

That's the RULE of the religion. But caffeine use is pretty rare in the LDS church because a lot of people say it violates the "spirit" of the Word of Wisdom. For most devout Mormons, healthy eating is considered part of the "spirit" of the Word of Wisdom - lots of fresh fruits & veggies, whole grains, etc. So sodas are usually pretty rare though not specifically prohibited. As one of my friends put it: "We only drink caffeine if we're driving on a long road trip; they we have sodas. If you never have any caffeine, a soda on a road trip is a heck of a stimulant."

I support this policy, as well as the ban on alchohol. If you go mixing alchohol and caffiene with LDS, you're going to end up with some bath-salts level crazy.

Face eating mormon zombies. Mark my words.

Well, if they'd downed those caffeinated sodas before the cops showed up, they would've had the energy to.

/Banning caffeine should be an Embassy-storming offense.

Ironically they used to drink copious amounts of Ephedra, known as "Mormon Tea" in the southwest... which is a step or two below Meth on the stimulant scale.

I love America. I can simply not go near Utah, Kansas, Alabama and Florida and all of their silliness doesn't affect me. Now if you choose to attend a Mormon university suck it up and deal!
