Matthew S. Turley, Mormon Missionary, Tragically Killed Yesterday In Argentina; Still No Official Mention Of His Death On LDS.ORG!!
Elder Matthew S. Turley and Elder Tyler A. Watts, from left to right.
***Update***4/27/06-Well, none of us should be surprised!! I knew it was too good to be true, that the Mormon Church would continue to honor the death of Matthew Turley, a Mormon Missionary, by making him the number one news story, on either one of their news sections. As pointed out below in my other updates, he wasn't originally number one, until after I wrote this post blasting them for it, as I've been doing since December, when Benjamin Ellsworth died and wasn't even mentioned on LDS.ORG.
Sadly, in the section "News for members and friends of the Church", where Matthew Turley's death, mysteriously rose to number one, after being number 2 the day before, he has now fallen to number 3 in about a day's time. So what was it that suddenly and quickly became more important than the life of this missionary? Well, the number one story is now, "Number 4,000 for Music and the Spoken Word" and the number 2 story is, "Elder Kikuchi Encourages Korean, Japanese Students." So, how many damn shows the MOTAB has done and Elder Kikuchi speaking, are now more important than a missionary that died and it only took one day for this to happen?
It even gets worse on the other news page, "Newsroom for news media" where the prime story on the front page is "United Way Honors Church Leader" and where Matthew Turley was already 2nd and has now fallen to 4th. I predict within a few more days, he wont even be on the main page of either news pages, if they have to create new news stories or pull them out of their ass to do it. The quicker this news goes away, of a missionary dying and not being protected by the Lord or his garments, the better, right? That's obviously what they are doing and I'm just here to point it out to everyone, as I always do.
Come on everybody, read this post, think about what I'm writing, hell, even ponder and pray about it if you are a TBM and you'll know that what I'm saying is true.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, that these men know no shame and will do whatever it takes to keep the big corporate money machine, that is masquerading as a church, running at full steam. Speaking of running at full steam, I wonder how Boyd K. Packer's little factory is doing, or if he has been fondling it, making it speed up lately.
Yeah, that's the kind of bullshit these pathetic, so called "men of God", care about, not whether a missionary died. The Mormon Church and the Mormon Hierarchy, all the way to Gordon B. Hinckley himself, are an unbelievable disgrace!! When will the masses realize that the Church doesn't give a tinkers damn about them, their family, their missionaries or anybody, but their image, shopping malls, luxury resorts and filthy lucre? Hopefully sooner than later!!
WAKE UP EVERYBODY AND SEE THE LIGHT!!
***Update***4/25/06-Wow!! Did the Church actually read my blog and respond or what? Suddenly, the number 2 story on their "News for members and friends of the Church" page, became the number one story and the number one story, fell to number 2. They have never done this one time, that I've seen in the last 10 months. Now, on their "Newsroom for news media" page(formerly "mistakes in the media" page), Matthew Turley's tragic death is still number 2, as it was yesterday, behind the article, "Church Supports Call for Constitutional Amendment."
I'm amazed that the Mormon Church actually put the missionary death first, on either of their news sections. Whether it was my influence or somebody else's, it doesn't matter, as I'm just grateful, that this missionary, Matthew Turley, and his family, are being honored by having a link to his tragic accident on the homepage of LDS.ORG, where it belongs and belonged yesterday. That is all I wanted!! Honor this young man and his family for his ultimate sacrifice!!
Whether they were shamed into it or not, at least they eventually did the right thing for this man and his family. Now, let's see how long it stays there. I'll keep everyone posted on that.***
***Update***4/24/06-Believe it or not, the Mormon Church, has actually, finally, reported the death of this missionary on their website. His companion was from Utah, so maybe that had something to do with it? It wasn't there earlier, but it is now. My blog, sadly, reported it before they did and hopefully my blog maybe forced them or persuaded them to actually report it this time, which is not customary at all, for the Mormon Hierarchy.
After all, I have people from Church headquarters and BYU(FARMS), reading my blog on a daily basis, for hours at a time, so maybe they caught this post and reacted quickly. They(The Mormon Hierarchy) strongly prefer and try, to sweep all missionary deaths under the carpet, as they aren't faith promoting and may affect future recruits into their cult, especially future missionary recruits.
Still no mention of Benjamin Ellsworth, who was killed in December and Joel Galindo Flores, who was killed in Mexico 11/9/2005 when he was also hit by car. That is just 2 of the hundreds of missionaries killed, that the Church doesn't mention, honor, acknowledge or respect in anyway whatsoever. The Mormon Church has no memorial, no memoriam, nada, zilch, honoring these poor young men and women, who died trying to convert more people into their damn cult.
Where is the compassion and the love? Where is their public show and display of gratitude, for these young men and women that have made the ultimate sacrifice for their damn lies and fairy tales? These young men and women, (along with their families), believed with their heart and soul, that they were representatives of Jesus Christ, also that they would be protected during their mission, but at the same time, were willing to die for Hinckley and the Mormon Church and well, they did, sadly die, in the service of the Mormon Church/Cult.
Let me also point out a couple of things to everyone that you may or may not have noticed, that irritate the living, holy hell out of me and I find them to be absolutely reprehensible and disgusting.
First of all, this story of Matthew Turley's death, is 2nd, yes 2nd, in the Mormon Church's current stories. In other words, take a look, under "NEWSROOM", as this story doesn't appear on the home page of LDS.ORG, which only lists the "NUMBER ONE STORY." The number one story, is the homophobic/bigoted story, entitled, "Church Supports Call for Constitutional Amendment."
Secondly, on the actual page, of the story, of Matthew Turley's death, it is the same article, word for word, as reported on KSL. But the big thing to me, and the most despicable thing, is that once again, accompanying this article, under
"DETAILED INFORMATION", it lists:
Elder Ballard Speaks on Missionary Safety
So, once again, even when a missionary dies, the Church wants to reassure future missionaries and their families, that the Church is doing all that they can, with the inspiration of the Lord and inspired Mission Presidents, to keep them safe and oh yeah, "THE WORK WILL GO FORWARD NO MATTER WHAT!! All they care about is image and more baptisms from more missionaries and the bottom line. They love quoting the trash talking, Joseph Smith worshiping, hard-ass Ballard, who (supposedly) wouldn't care if someone he loved, died for the Mormon cause.
Let's refresh everyone's mind on exactly, word for word, what the pathetic Mormon Apostle M. Russell Ballard said, right after Morgan Young and the 2 missionaries in New Zealand were killed:
This work will continue to go forward regardless of what happens, regardless of what the future may hold. If there are other missionaries that are hurt or other missionaries that are killed, it will not stop this work. Joseph Smith made that abundantly clear that there would be nothing that would stop this work from rolling forward till the Great Jehovah comes forward and says the work is done. And He hasn't said that yet.

Text of the remark
Now, that's love and compassion for grieving families, isn't it? What a sad commentary on these pathetic men, that purport to be Prophets, Seers and Revelators!!***
Well guys, I'm sorry to report once again, that yet another missionary has died and like Benjamin Ellsworth, who died in December, it was in Argentina, where I served my mission and almost died myself, while serving the Mormon cult.
Also, like Benjamin Ellsworth and most other missionaries that have died; no mention on LDS.ORG. Frankly, since it happened so far away, and the missionary wasn't from Utah, I highly doubt that they will even mention it at all, at any point, on LDS.ORG, like the majority of missionary deaths. If he was from Bountiful Utah, their backyard, they'd be all over it and be going to his funeral, with cameras snapping, like Morgan Young, when he died. One also has to wonder, as I've mentioned before, why aren't the holy, sacred garments of God protecting these poor, young, supposed servants and direct representatives of Jesus Christ?
I'll be doing more in the very near future on what the Church has "OFFICIALLY" said about how the garments protect you from harm and from SATAN. Of course, it always hinges on your obedience, which is a travesty to these missionaries that are dying. Just to insinuate that, "if they would have been worthy, their garments would have protected them", is asinine and outright evil and an amazing deception.
The "obedience" factor, is always the Church's escape hatch, back door, or way out of any promise or blessing(health, Patriarchal, etc), that doesn't come true. It's the ultimate bail out and cover all(or how they cover their ass!!). Also, where was the supposed inspiration from Gordon B. Hinckley, the current Mormon Prophet, Seer and Revelator. The Mormon God, must have been out hitting the links on Kolob or something......or Gordon B. Hinckley isn't a Prophet at all? You think?
I wish more people, specifically, you TBMS, would get a clue and connect the dots. It's time to quit sending your kids on missions, thinking that they will be protected by garments, a Prophet or the Mormon God. 6 missionaries have died since November and nobody saw it coming and the garments did nothing.
I will sadly and unfortunately, be adding Matthew Turley to my missionary memoriam page later today. By the way, Where is the Mormon Churches "Missionary Memoriam Page?" Oh yeah, that's right, they don't have one, because they don't give a damn about who dies and who gets sick(Ballard), the work will go forward because Ol'Joe said so....how sad!!
Now, as I pointed out in the title to this post, there was no mention of this on LDS.ORG and I found out through the News Media once again, as the Church made their announcement through KSL TV, which they own and only people in Utah or surrounding areas are able to see. The story was brief, to the point and they moved right on to the next story, like it was nothing. I find this appalling!! Here is the story on KSL.COM:
LDS Missionary Killed by Drunk Driver
April 24th, 2006 @ 4:23pm
(KSL News) -- A missionary serving The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Argentina was killed yesterday by a drunk driver.
The incident happened in San Luis. The victim is Elder Matthew Turley of Ridgefield, Connecticut. His companion, Elder Tyler Watts, of West Valley City was also hit but is expected to make a full recovery.
The missionaries were walking on a path beside a street when they were hit from behind by a drunk driver on the wrong side of the road.
Elder Turley had served for 21 months, Elder Watts for 17.
LDS Church spokesman Dale bills said, "We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Elder Turley. We pray that the Lord will comfort them as they mourn his loss. Our prayers are also with Elder Watts and his family as he recovers from his injuries."
Here is the article from the local Argentina Newspaper, for those of you that speak Spanish. I linked to it at the bottom, but you may need to register, as I did, in order to enter. However, here is the entire article, word for word.
ACCIDENTE EN LA AVENIDA SARMIENTO DE SAN LUIS
Alcoholizado, un automovilista embistió a un joven mormón y lo mató
Fue ayer a la mañana. (April 24, 2006) El conductor del auto abandonó la escena del accidente y lo interceptaron a las pocas cuadras.
Un accidente fatal, donde según asegura la Policía una vez más estuvo presente el alcohol como desencadenante de la desgracia, ocurrió ayer a la mañana en avenida Sarmiento, en las proximidades de la esquina con calle Córdoba, en el sector este de San Luis. La víctima es un misionero estadounidense que murió en el instante, al ser embestido desde atrás por un automóvil.
El trágico episodio sucedió alrededor de las 9, a metros del inicio de una bajada situada a poca distancia de calle Felipe Velázquez. El fallecido fue identificado como Mattew Scott Turley, de 19 años, quien en el momento de ser arrollado caminaba junto a otro religioso que también sufrió lesiones y está fuera de peligro. Se trata de Watts Tailor, de 20 años y domiciliado en calle Colón al 245.
La absurda muerte del consejero de la Iglesia Jesucristo de los Santos de los Ultimos Días, sucedió en circunstancias en que a pie se dirigía junto a su compañero a cumplir con una de las habituales visitas a una de las familias de esa comunidad religiosa. Los dos mormones transitaban por el costado oeste de Sarmiento, es decir que de frente podían ver los vehículos que bajaban.
Pero la fatalidad sorprendió a Turley por la espalda, ya que sin darle lugar a la más mínima reacción, tanto él como Tailor fueron arrollados por el Volkswagen Senda dominio WJF 823 que conducía Daniel Hipólito Martín, de 27 años y con domicilio en avenida Centenario 148, en San Luis.
De acuerdo a la reconstrucción de la tragedia que hace el área de Accidentología Vial del Cuerpo de Tránsito, el VW Senda se desplazaba por Sarmiento de sur a norte y antes de llegar al cruce con calle Córdoba, Martín perdió el control del volante y abruptamente se desvió hacia el carril contrario, embistiendo a los dos misioneros.
Tailor tuvo un poco más de fortuna, porque tras ser golpeado por el costado izquierdo fue despedido hacia la vereda. Sin embargo no ocurrió lo mismo con el muchacho de 19 años, que después de golpear con violencia contra el capó fue arrastrado más de 20 metros.
El estadounidense sufrió golpes en todo el cuerpo, pero las lesiones irreversibles las padeció en la cabeza. “Le partió el cráneo”, sintetizó uno de los peritos policiales, para indicar seguidamente que en el lugar donde quedó tendido, quedó una gran mancha de sangre debido a las fatales lesiones internas y cortes en el cuero cabelludo.
El otro misionero fue hospitalizado y por la tarde fue dado de alta, por lo que de inmediato iba a ser trasladado a Accidentología Vial, para tomarle la correspondiente declaración testimonial.
La situación de Martín se presenta como muy complicada. Algunos testigos del drama le hicieron conocer a la Policía que “tras despedir el cuerpo de Turley se detuvo, bajó y se fue”, apuntó un vocero policial. Minutos más tarde fue interceptado frente a la parroquia Nuestra Señora del Carmen.
En la dependencia con sede en calle Falucho, detrás de la Comisaría 1ª, se le efectuó la prueba de alcotest y el resultado fue positivo, según confió una fuente del sector. Quedó detenido acusado de “Homicidio culposo en accidente de tránsito” y a disposición del Juzgado en lo Penal y Correccional Nº 3.
El sumario además de la prueba de alcotest, comprende vistas fotográficas, plano del escenario del hecho y pericias mecánicas.

Car strikes, kills LDS missionary in Argentina
Companion from W.V. injured by drunken driver
By Ben Winslow
Deseret Morning News
An LDS missionary in Argentina was killed and his companion was injured when they were hit by a drunken driver while walking to meet a family and accompany them to Sunday services.
Matthew S. Turley, 21, of Ridgefield, Conn., and Elder Tyler A. Watts, 20, of West Valley City, were walking on a path beside a street in San Luis, Argentina, when they were struck from behind by a drunken driver who was on the wrong side of the road, said Dale Bills, a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
"We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Elder Turley," Bills said Monday. "We pray that the Lord will comfort them as they mourn his loss."
Elder Turley's father, Scott Turley, told KSL-TV his son was "a very determined young man in all he did, and his mission was no exception."
In 2002, Elder Turley made headlines as a high school athlete who refused to play in a state high school championship football game because it was on a Sunday. As a practicing Mormon, he told the News-Times in Ridgefield, Conn., "I've never faced a decision of this magnitude."
The missionaries were on their way to meet a family who was preparing for a baptism and were to accompany them to church services, said Salt Lake Granger South Stake President Roger Nordgren, who oversees the Watts family's West Valley ward.
The Watts family "is obviously grateful that their son wasn't injured more seriously," Nordgren said.
The Argentinian newspaper El Diario de la Republica reported Monday that Daniel Hipolito Martin, 27, was detained on charges of automobile homicide. The newspaper said Martin fled the scene of the crash and was found a couple of blocks away, and police said Martin tested positive for alcohol use.
Describing a bloody scene, El Diario de la Republica published crash-scene photographs of a blue Volkswagen with a shattered front windshield. The Spanish-language newspaper said Turley was dragged for 20 meters and died of head injuries.
Elder Watts was treated and released from a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery, the LDS Church said. Local church members were helping him. The Watts family spoke to him Sunday night.
"He was able to walk," Nordgren said. "He said he was doing well under the circumstances."
Elder Turley had served in the Argentina Mendoza Mission for 21 months, Elder Watts had served 17.
