Who cares? The internet is going to bring about the downfall of that cult. Beliefs in handshakes to get into heaven, magic underwear and non-existent lost civilizations as told by a serial womanizer and con-man all look silly when a little bit of research reveals the truth. The only thing that organization has going for it is it's not as bad as the Scientologists.

KrispyKritter: She became pregnant through Immaculate conception, in that God didn't come to her as a man on earth and toss her a bang. Get your fairytales straight if you're going to tell them.


The Immaculate Conception refers to the conception of Mary by Saints Joachim and Anne, not Jesus' conception by Mary, actually.

And mainstream Christians believe that a virgin woman had a child (somehow genetically different from herself) who could perform feats that defy all laws of physics, including turning one substance into another, and who died and later came back to life. There may be lost civilizations on our planet. But rising from the dead? That's a whole different level of idiocy. The internet hasn't wiped out all Christianity, because there will always be unintelligent people who prefer the easy-to-understand children's fables over logic and scientific evidence.

It really didn't make sense to have it at 19 in the first place. Kids graduating from high school know everything, so they're perfect vehicles to send the Word of God out into the world.

Better to use them for this before they realize what a waste of time it is.

It's a ploy to make it easier for them to avoid the draft for when RMoney goes full-jihad after the election.

Quantum Apostrophe: Straelbora: I'm all for 'live and let live,' except when the religion has aggressive missionaries, and when they are fundamentally racist, like Christian Identity, Nation of Islam or Mormonism. The heinous thing about Mormons is that they try and sell their racist pseudo history to the very people maligned by it. At least the white and black supremecists keep their hate to their own kind.

Don't forget Jehovah's Witnesses, who are basically a doomsday cult. They also have missionaries that stand in entrances of Metro stations. I call them the mumblers, they always stand there with a vapid look on their face with the Watchtower magazine and mumbling away. The Mormons are more aggressive, they go in the trains and accost passengers with their nonsense.


Yeah, I forgot about them. I hate the way they use kids to knock on the door, with two or three adults standing a few steps behind. After about the eighth time I told them to stop coming to my house within one year, after opening the door and seeing a girl who looked about 12 with three adults standing behind her, I just started, "Little girl- everything they tell you at church is made-up. The only reason your family are Christians is because the white people who bought your ancestors felt guilty about treating other humans like animals, so they told themselves that bringing Jesus to the savages made slavery worth it." I haven't seen another JW at my door in four years since.

A high school friend had a coworker who was a JW. The guy decided to move out of his parents' house at age 22 or so. I had no idea of the context, I was just asked to help move boxes and furniture. There was an endless parade of church members coming to castigate him and try to convince him not to commit this evil act. They literally acted like we non-Jehovah's Witnesses weren't there. Heard later that the guy's entire family excommunicated him.

Quantum Apostrophe: Kurmudgeon: Quantum Apostrophe: So which creation myth should I believe in? The one drilled into your head since you were a kid?

The fact you assume it's a myth shows you've read nothing at all.

Oh boy, you owned me hard. I've read most of the Norse myths. But let me guess, THOSE stories are myths, YOUR story is correct. So, which one is it? I'll read it.


Let it go, man. He's either a troll or a die-hard Christian. Either way, arguing with him is a lost cause.

Hmm, has science changed it's mind about the beginning of the universe....again?
That's ok, feed your ego, Heist.
God will be waiting for you in the end.

randomjsa: It's actually been years since those idiots came around here... I wonder why.


The recession. You do know that they have to cough up large sums of cash to go on these missions, right?

:CSB:
Had a buddy who chased a skirt in to the Mormon church. Ended up brainwashed and saved for 2 or 3 years so he could pay to go on a "mission." He was supposed to marry this broad when he returned. Unfortunately, he came back to find that she'd been getting rooted by some other dude she married while he was overseas - leading him to believe she was saving it for him the whole time.

That hurt his faith a little.

All things being equal, the things Mormons believe aren't all that odd compared to ANY other brand of religion. You're cherry-picking some oddities but, trust me, there are oddities in every denomination of Christianity and in every branch of Judaism/Islam as well. (and they don't think the underwear is actually magical, they just see it as a sacred reminder of promises they've made to God)


I have had the misfortune of attending many a mormon sacrement service. Among the rank and file there is a belief that those things have superspecial powers - I don't know how many times you would hear some buffoon get up in fast & testimony or sunday school and talk about how in some plane crash/car wreck/bee attack everyone got killed except for the undie wearers. The church might not officially sanction such talk but they have no problem with the rank &file spreading their delusions.
