Who was the Homecoming Queer?

MadSkillz: bdub77: We got rid of the native Americans and replaced them with farking Mormons. Yeah that was a great idea. Great thinking, America.

But mormonism teaches us that the natives were jews who were punished by god with red skin and cast from israel.


Wait, so that means I'm part Jewish because I'm part Cherokee? Oy gevalt! Does this mean I have to give up bacon?!

"There's nothing going on. That's what I saw when I looked out over the city: nothing. How the Mormon settlers looked upon this valley and felt that it was the promised land is beyond me. I don't know, maybe it looked different back then. "

EyeballKid: Tat'dGreaser: religious fundamentalism is really correct but there is a slight difference between being retarded about "inappropriate dresses" and flying a couple planes into some buildings killing over 3,000 people. Little difference

Yes, and the LDS has never committed any violent acts against people. Isn't that right, emigrants and Native Americans at Mountain Meadows?


Apparently, the LDS grew out of the "violent fundamentalist" stage of fairly quickly. Islam has had, what, 1700 years or so?

If they follow the pattern of Christianity, they should start mellowing out pretty soon. Next hundred years or so.

Yes, I'm so glad the LDS learned that a pyramid scheme is far more profitable than a cult., especially when your membership totals are barely enough to fit onepodunk state that's been all but bought. It's as if it were rooted in disingenuity, birthed by a con man who was simply trying to fool a bunch of yayhooes.

The only reason Mormons are still not violent a-holes is because the army was sent into their territory in 1858 with orders to hang all the leaders if they would not calm down. A bit of rope, and a direct threat of violence against the leaders, has a way of moderating a religion.

If they had essentially remained their own country, they would be sitting off bombs in California.

I bet they were wearing multicolored socks as well.

Someday Utah will allow their residents to use electricity and indoor plumbing.

This flapper scourge must end now. Today they're wearing short haircuts and dresses that expose bare knees, tomorrow they'll be smoking cigarettes, drinking liquor and even listening to that daemonic jazz music and dancing the Charleston.

No, we should let them live as they please. Even if the locals happen not to like it.

Honestly, it's not that difficult a concept to grasp.

But just think of all the GOOD things that religion does!

Think of all the close bonds between priests and the youngsters in their parishes....

Islamic brothers in places like Syria, Afghanistan and Egypt....

And let's not forget the brotherly love between Christians in Ireland...

this thread shows how ignorant most of you are of actual Utah reality.
Utah parents have a right to be concerned. haven't you ever heard of how obsessed with sex most of them are? most other activities are prohibited. it's the same kind of thing that people say about catholic school girls.
i've lived in southern utah for 5 years now and have watched at least a half dozen 16-18 year old girls get pregnant and married by the age of 18 (in a town of 200) - they are not fundies - fundamentalists are RARE, not the norm. it has more to do with being so close to a pioneer lifestyle & ranching, etc. than any religious belief - kids who grow up rurally having to do real work & are away from BS cultural brainwashing (i.e. no easy access to 'the culture of the spectacle'), are surrounded by nature rather than an abstracted humanist urban reality, and grow up and mature much faster than city kids. small town children interact more with adults and are more able to converse in a mature manner as well. there aren't age separations like there are elsewhere.
plus, mormon's don't rule utah as much as you think. i happen to live in the state and they have little to no affect on me or my lifestyle. more frustrating are self righteous psuedo intellectual liberals who come on vacation and proclaim how wise & smart they are and then can't manage to use a farking gas pump & buy bottles water while wearing a 'reduce/reuse/recycle' shirt then proclaim to know more about the culture of the area than locals do after spending only a few days traveling through.

To be fair, at least half of those dresses look like shiat compared to that one floor-length one.
 
2012-10-03 08:39:11 AM
I can see turning them away at the door for their poor choices in dresses. Those were God awful. Chiffon? Rusching? Schrug type jackets? Good grief! Some of those guys looked great though...

Very good, then! Let us drink to your...oh, wait....

sue_phi: small town children interact more with adults and are more able to converse in a mature manner as well. there aren't age separations like there are elsewhere.


What's age separation when everybody's sharing the same child-like naivete?

How much of Utah's tourism is strawman-based?
 
2012-10-03 08:41:38 AM
maybe these girls should have understood the rules a little bit better.

I'm honestly getting tired of the news reporting on children who are denied something at school due to their own/parents failure to understand simple rules.

if the rule is your dress has to be knee length and your knees can't be exposed, how hard is that to understand

doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with the rule, it's the rule.

So it's like the Catholic Church, just with less frippery, and of course much smaller.

Actually, the rule was "at or near knee length". Lots of girls who followed that rule were barred anyway. As a result, the principal apologized and has promised to hold another dance to try to make up for what happened.

But, I still think the hissy fit in this thread should continue, if only for my amusment.

If by "community," you mean everyone, then the problem solves itself, since everyone agrees.

If by "community," you mean a large subset of the whole, then no, they don't get (within reason) to tell everybody else what to do. Those with minority values and/or lifestyles are part of the "community," too.

Minority rights, how does it work?

OK, so why didn't that work for other religions?

Seriously, though, I think pretty much all organized religion is at some point a scam. Even if it doesn't *START* that way, it's too easy to pervert it into a money or power grabbing scheme. Think of the millions who've died because of minor doctrinal disagreements within Christianity. Islam is no different: Sunnis and shiates are at each others throats when they don't have others to pick on. Is that what Jesus and Mohammed intended?

This is a big deal. This dance was supposed to be one of the only night these girls don't get molested by their father, and they all got sent home and stuck anyway.
