Mormons Gloat Over Prop 8 Victory

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

The Mormon Church wasted no time issuing a communique basically gloating over the decision by the cowardly California Supreme Court vis a vis Prop 8.

Today’s decision by the California Supreme Court is welcome. The issue the court decided was whether California citizens validly exercised their right to amend their own constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman. The court has overwhelmingly affirmed their action.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recognizes the deeply held feelings on both sides, but strongly affirms its belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman.  The bedrock institution of marriage between a man and a woman has profound implications for our society. These implications range from what our children are taught in schools to individual and collective freedom of religious expression and practice.

Accordingly, the Church stands firmly for what it believes is right for the health and well-being of society as a whole. In doing so, it once again affirms that all of us are children of God, and all deserve to be treated with respect. The Church believes that serious discussion of these issues is not helped when extreme elements on both sides of the debate demonize the other.

I think the time has come to mount a serious legal challenge to the tax exempt status of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

    Its passed time.

    “The Church believes that serious discussion of these issues is not helped when extreme elements on both sides of the debate demonize the other…..(as long as our side wins).”

    My bullshit-o-meter is in the red zone….

    “Accordingly, the Church stands firmly for what it believes is right for the health and well-being of society as a whole.”

    >>Correction: Select groups of society who share the same prejudice.

    “In doing so, it once again affirms that all of us are children of God, and all deserve to be treated with respect. ”

    >>Correction: SOME are children of god, the rest will be judged by our Morman clique.

    “Respect*” is metered and subjective.
    *Respect does not involve equal rights for all.

    The Church believes that serious discussion of these issues is not helped when extreme elements on both sides of the debate demonize the other.

    >>Demons/Burning in Hell/Judge Not/Do unto others….. Who is embracing extreme elements???

    “The Church recognizes”
    “The Church stands firmly”
    “The Church believes”

    >>The Church is an inanimate object.
    The Church needs to lose it’s tax exempt status.
    The congregation needs to review their bibles….
    Love one another….
    Do unto others….

    Is it just me or does anyone else find it totally weird that a religion (or parts of it) that practices Polygamy feels justified in telling others what kind of relationship other consenting adults can & can’t have? Someone with 21 wives and young teen girls having babies is going to mandate proper relationship etiquette? Seriously?

  5. bradfrmphnx says:

    Fran, I couldn’t agree with you more. But in all fairness, they quit practicing Polygamy long ago, and now openly oppose it.

    They are still Goddam idiots to me.

  6. Teen LaQueeffa says:

    I’d like to travel to Salt Lake City and take a big bowel movement on the floor of the Church of LDS headquarters for the bigots to enjoy.

    Anyone like to accompany me???

  7. No more tax exempt status? How will they buy their magical underoos?

  8. I say we should pool resources and follow the Mormon leadership with video cameras. Because one of them will find his way to Ted Haggard’s hooker…that’s why.
