Is Donny Osmond Really So Desperate For PR, That He Has To Turn Against His Beliefs & Promote Gambling, In Order To Promote His Album And Concerts?!!

I first have to say that I have always liked Donny Osmond(I saw him and all the Osmonds in concert when I was about 6-7 years old) and I always thought that he seemed like a pretty good and genuine guy. I've watched him in interviews(including Howard Stern) and found him to be very down to earth, humble, grateful, etc. He did admit to Howard Stern that his wife Debbie wouldn't give him oral, which probably wasn't the best thing to say and definitely not in keeping with the standards of the church, which he professes to believe so strongly in.

Anyway, so I was browsing his
personal site a while back, in the "beliefs" section and wow, he sure comes across as a very devout, die-hard Mormon, in every way. So, due to his very strong profession of the Mormon Faith and his promoting of Mormonism every chance he gets, and all over his website; I was shocked to see him promoting gambling in the above video, in order to promote his newest album. It would appear that he's reached the desperation mode or maybe he really isn't and never has been a true TBM and he just does it for image, to be different, or to fit in here in Utah and most of all, to keep all of his Mormon fans...who really knows?!!

One thing that is crystal clear, is that famous Mormons are usually huge hypocrites, right down to the Hierarchy themselves,
agreeing to allow alcohol to be served in Jesus' new malls. Meanwhile, across the street at temple square and the Gordydome, they are condemning it left and right and talking about how it is evil, of the devil and destroying and tearing apart families. So is it okay or not? It is against the word of wisdom(which even Joseph Smith didn't obey, getting drunk in jail, along with his brother, John Taylor, the guard, etc, the night before he was killed) and will keep you out of "The Lord's house", yet the liquor will flow for Jesus malls Inc. Why is this?

I've already lost 3 die-hard TBM friends from my life, due to this one issue and the one even told me to "get behind the Prophet and support the alcohol or get out of the church and renounce my membership immediately, because a Prophet cannot EVER lead us astray and that the serving alcohol in the malls was a revelation straight from Jesus Christ to Hinckley." I'm surprised he didn't call my Bishop and tattle on me, I really am. Needless to say, we haven't spoken since.

He was the same guy that said he'd get down on his knees and thank God if his daughter was brutally raped and killed, because it would only make him a stronger, better man...because everything is meant to be, as the tears filled his eyes. Yeah, he has some very serious and deep emotional and psychological issues, which I'm sure are all cult related, from a lifetime of Mormon abuse, indoctrination and brainwashing. It's really sad to see what has happened to the guy, who I thought was pretty normal until then.

Anyway, I honestly believe that Mormonism is nothing more than a social networking group for people like Donny Osmond, Steve Young and others and that they only have a shallow view of the church and never go beyond the surface and don't care one whit what's below it. They probably don't even know 90% of what us ex-Mormons know and really couldn't give a damn either way, because hey, it keeps them popular and adorned and they are all on the Mormon fireside circuit, which they eat up.

I'm sure that anyone of us well informed ex-Mormons could embarrass these guys in seconds with our knowledge and their lack of knowledge. But again, it doesn't matter to them, because hey, they have albums to sell, motivational speaking engagements, firesides to speak at, autographed items to sell and so on. Most of Donny's responses on his site, to questions asked, are all very by the book, standard, Mormon responses.

Oh yeah, did I mention the Stake President in Nevada that owns a casino? How many of you knew that? I always see and hear people talking about Mormons working in casinos, but how about a Stake President owning one and tithing on that money. Like the Mormon Hierarchy doesn't know this and didn't know this when they called him to be a Stake President and I'm sure he was a Bishop before that. Again, just another example to support my "hypocrisy" comments and the "do as we say, not as we do" attitude of the Mormon Hierarchy.

Real quick, let's review what Hinckley himself, the current modern day Prophet of fraud has said about gambling:

"I think I could answer the question concerning gambling just that briefly. We are against it.

Gambling is to be found almost everywhere and is growing. People play poker. They bet on horse races and dog races. They play roulette and work the slot machines. They gather to play in bars, saloons, and casinos, and, all too often, in their own homes. Many cannot leave it alone. It becomes addictive. In so many cases it leads to other destructive habits and practices...

I am told that Utah and Hawaii are now the only two states in the United States that have not legalized lotteries and gambling of various forms. From the letters I have received from members of the Church, it becomes apparent that some of our young people start by playing poker. They get the taste of getting something for nothing, and then travel outside of the state to where they can gamble legally...

We now have state lotteries on a very large scale. Once the law almost universally prohibited them. Now they are operated as a means of gaining revenue.

Some 20 years ago, speaking in conference, I said: "Lottery fever recently peaked when New York State announced that three winning tickets would split $41 million. People [had] lined up to buy tickets. One winning ticket was held by 21 factory workers, with 778 second-place winners, and 113,000 who received token amounts. That may sound pretty good.

'But there were also 35,998,956 losers, each of whom had paid for a chance to win [and received nothing]' (in Conference Report, Oct. 1985, 67; or Ensign, Nov. 1985, 52).

Some American states have imposed heavy taxes on casinos as a source of revenue. The operating company also must have its profit. Then comes the winning ticket holder. All others who bought tickets are left empty-handed.

I am so grateful that when the Lord established this Church He gave us the law of tithing.(like that isn't gambling) I talked at one time with an officer of another church which, I understand, relies on the playing of bingo for a substantial part of its income. I said to this man, "Have you ever considered tithing to finance your church?" He replied, "Yes, and oh, how I wish that we might follow this practice instead of playing bingo. But I do not expect this change in my lifetime..."

Well, I just thought you'd all enjoy seeing this.

One of our young men recently said, "Pay five bucks to see a movie; pay five bucks to play poker—it is the same idea."

It is not the same idea. In one case you get something for which you pay; in the other case, only one picks up the winnings and the others are left empty-handed.

Experience has shown that the playing of poker can lead to an obsession to gambling.

From the early days of this Church, gambling has been denounced.

As far back as 1842, Joseph Smith described conditions when the Saints lived in Missouri. Said he, "We made large purchases of land, our farms teemed with plenty, and peace and happiness were enjoyed in our domestic circle, and throughout our neighborhood; but as we could not associate with our neighbors . . . in their midnight revels, their Sabbath breaking, horse racing and gambling, they commenced at first to ridicule, then to persecute, and finally an organized mob assembled and burned our houses, tarred and feathered and whipped many of our brethren, and finally, contrary to law, justice and humanity, drove them from their habitations" (in James R. Clark, comp., Messages of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6 vols. [1965–75], 1:139).(Wow, I never knew that all of that happened just because the Mormons wouldn't gamble...yeah right!! I think he might have left out the polygamy, wife stealing, sex with underage girls and oh yeah, a massive bank failure, where he first tricked them all into investing and then defrauded them them all and snuck out of town in the middle of the night, claiming mob violence. Yeah, I probably would have been in that mob if he'd stolen my life savings.)

Brigham Young, in October of 1844, said this concerning Nauvoo, "We wish to suppress all grogshops, gambling houses, and all other disorderly houses or proceedings in our city, and to tolerate no intemperance or vice in our midst" (in Messages of the First Presidency, 1:242).

Presidents of the Church and counselors in the Presidency have repeatedly spoken concerning this evil. George Q. Cannon, counselor to three Presidents of the Church, said: "There are many evils in the world which young folks need to be guarded against. One of these is gambling. There are various forms of this evil but they are all bad and should not be indulged in" (Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q. Cannon, sel. Jerreld L. Newquist, 2 vols. [1974], 2:223).

President Joseph F. Smith stated, "The Church does not approve of gambling but strongly condemns it as morally wrong, and classes also with this gambling, games of chance and lottery, of all kinds, and earnestly disapproves of any of its members engaging therein" ("Editor's Table," Improvement Era, Aug. 1908, 807).

President Heber J. Grant counseled: "The Church has been and now is unalterably opposed to gambling in any form whatever. It is opposed to any game of chance, occupation, or so-called business, which takes money from the person who may be possessed of it without giving value received in return.(like LDS Inc does to its members?) It is opposed to all practices the tendency of which is to . . . degrade or weaken the high moral standard which the members of the Church, and our community at large, have always maintained" (in Messages of the First Presidency, 5:245).

President Spencer W. Kimball said: "From the beginning we have been advised against gambling of every sort. The deterioration and damage comes to the person, whether he wins or loses, to get something for nothing, something without effort, something without paying the full price" (in Conference Report, Apr. 1975, 6; or Ensign, May 1975, 6).

Elder Dallin H. Oaks, who is with us tonight, in 1987 delivered a masterful discourse on this subject at what was then Ricks College. It was entitled "Gambling—Morally Wrong and Politically Unwise" (see Ensign, June 1987, 69–75).

To these statements of the position of the Church I add my own. The pursuit of a game of chance may seem like harmless fun. But there attaches to it an intensity that actually shows on the faces of those who are playing. And in all too many cases this practice, which appears innocent, can lead to an actual addiction. The Church has been and is now opposed to this practice. If you have never been involved in poker games or other forms of gambling, don't start. If you are involved, then quit now while you can do so.

There are better ways to spend one's time. There are better pursuits to occupy one's interest and energy. There is so much of wonderful reading available. We are not likely to ever get too much of it. There is music to be learned and enjoyed. There is just having a good time together—in dancing, in hiking, in cycling, or in other ways—boys and girls together enjoying one another's company in a wholesome way.

I wanted to end with a few quick points; first of all, despite gambling being so evil and destructive and something the church is supposedly so against; it is not a temple recommend question and will not keep you out of the temple. There are many humorous stories here in Utah about members running into their Bishop out in Wendover, Nevada, which is about an hour and a half from Salt lake.

If you go out there and drive through the parking lot, 99% of the cars are from Utah of course. Whenever the powerball lottery in Idaho gets up to around $200,000,000, it's literally a traffic jam and mass exodus of cars on I-15, from Utah to Idaho, which I've participated in many times...why not?!! LOL!!

So, if it is so important that Mormons not gamble, why isn't it a rule or commandment, like the word of wisdom? I guess they have to leave room for Stake Presidents to own casinos and for people like Harry Reid to be the head of the Nevada Gaming Commission, right? I mean hell, it's apparently such a big deal, that even J. Willard Marriott won't allow casinos in his hotels in casino towns, like Vegas or Rio and many other places. Meanwhile, he sells and profits from alcohol and shows hard-core porn....go figure....just more typical Mormon hypocrisy.

I guess gambling is worse than hard-core porn and booze now? I mean Oaks did say porn is harder to overcome than cocaine, so I guess gambling is harder to overcome than porn and cocaine?.

MP3 File

Funny how the TBMS claim that J Willard Marriott has no control whatsoever, regarding what goes on in his hotels with porn and booze, yet he makes sure they don't have any casinos or gambling. That would seem to contradict that, wouldn't it?

Now, what did the Mormon's beloved, humble and celebrated Prophet Brigham Young have to REALLY say about gambling in addition to what Hinckley said above:

Now hearken, O ye Texians; do you say there are are people here who are wicked? So we say. Could I wish things to be otherwise? No, I would not have them different if I could. We can produce the best men and the worst, the best women and the worst, and thus prove, according to the sayings of Jesus Christ and his Apostles, that this is the kingdom of God, or at least answers to the Savior's description of that kingdom.

Were I in Texas I would say, let me tell you that I have not embraced any man on this earth, in my faith, but I have embraced the doctrine of salvation, and it is no matter what the people do in Utah. Here is the doctrine of salvation, talk against that, prove that to be false, or find a flaw in it, if you can. As for the people, they cannot save you. Never embrace a man in your faith, for that is sectarianism.

There are many of the men and women now before me who have looked for a pure people, and have supposed that that was a proof of the truth of our doctrines, but they will never find such a people until Satan is bound, and Jesus comes to reign with his Saints. The doctrine we preach is the doctrine of salvation, and it is that which the Elders of this Church take to the world, and not the people of Utah.

Some of the Elders seem to be tripped up in a moment, if the wicked can find any fault with the members of this Church; but bless your souls, I would not yet have this people faultless, for the day of separation has not yet arrived.
I have many a time, in this stand, dared the world to produce as mean devils as we can; we can beat them at anything. We have the greatest and smoothest liars in the world, the cunningest and most adroit thieves, and any other shade of character that you can mention.(AMEN to that statement!!)

We can pick out Elders in Israel right here who can beat the world at gambling, who can handle the cards, cut and shuffle them with the smartest rogue on the face of God's foot-stool. I can produce Elders here who can shave their smartest shavers, and take their money from them. We can beat the world at any game.

We can beat them, because we have men here that live in the light of the Lord, that have the Holy Priesthood, and hold the keys of the kingdom of God. But you may go through all the sectarian world, and you cannot find a man capable of opening the door of the kingdom of God to admit others in. We can do that. We can pray the best, preach the best, and sing the best. We are the best looking and finest set of people on the face of the earth, and they may begin any game they please, and we are on hand, and can beat them at anything they have a mind to begin. They may make sharp their two-edged swords, and I will turn out the Elders of Israel with greased feathers, and whip them to death. We are not to be beat. We expect to be a stumbling block to the whole world, and a rock of offence to them. (A Discourse by President Brigham Young, Delivered in the Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, November 9, 1856. J. of D. Vol. 4 P. 77)

I don't think I really need to say much in response to those words of Brigham Young, as they speak for themselves and are quite shocking, in many regards. How many of you out there had ever read those words before? I'm sure that some of you are reading them for the first time and can't believe what you just read, just like it was for me and most of us when we first read them.

Well, like usual, this post was intended to be a short one, but it turned into something much longer and time consuming, as I had a lot more to say than I thought I did. Hopefully it was informative for everyone and you've learned something from it. I hope things go better for Donny Osmond in the future, so that he doesn't have to go against current and past Prophets by promoting gambling, in order to promote his new album and future concerts.

Then again, despite how evil the hierarchy claims it is to gamble; it isn't even a question in the temple recommend interview as I mentioned above, so I guess Donny is free to do whatever the hell he wants in regard to gambling. In fact, I guess all of the Saints are free to gamble at will and then enter their temple recommend interview with a clean and clear conscience.

Look, the fact is, and we all know this; the Mormon hierarchy, especially Hinckley, doesn't want the members gambling, because of only one reason and one reason only; it may affect their ability to pay tithing and the amount they pay. That's why the church has spent millions of tithe payer dollars to fight any form of gambling, especially the lotto, both in Utah and Hawaii.

We then have the examples of Lynn G. Robbins claiming that you should pay tithing instead of feeding your family, Earl C. Tingey taking geese eggs from an unemployed man with a large family in Africa and Faust bragging about the Saints in Argentina literally selling their gold fillings, to help build a temple in Brazil. This post has audio to the Robbins and Tingey remarks for those interested, that haven't heard them before.

In my opinion, the odds of winning the lottery or hitting a jackpot on a slot machine or picking the right team in the SuperBowl, are much higher than ever getting anything back from your Mormon tithing.

In fact, when you are gambling, you at least know where all your money is going, unlike tithing, where they don't report back to the members at all, despite Hinckley lying to the German reporter and saying that it's between the church and its members. At least if you pick a team to win a sporting event, in football, basketball, etc, you have odds of 50% before the game begins.

With tithing, your odds are ZERO when you start and ZERO when you end. Nothing good or any blessings, ever come from tithing. The only thing that happens when you tithe, is that you donate your hard earned money to a money grubbing corporation, who does what ever they please with it, with no oversight or accountability. Amazing isn't it, that casinos are more honest than the Mormon Hierarchy of God's supposed "one and only true church"....LOL!!

My advice, if you have to choose between gambling or paying tithing to the corporation of the President/LDS Inc; go gamble and have fun, and you might even come home with a return on your money, unlike tithing, which guarantees you NOTHING.

Take care everyone,

Another Mormon, This Time A Missionary, Accused Of Sexually Assaulting A 12-Year-Old Boy. If This Is True, Where Was The Inspiration To Prevent it?

Well, like I said in the Title, if this is true and Kyle Michael Saucier did what he's accused of; where was the inspiration to prevent it? I mean once again, it happened pretty close to Hinckley himself and once again, he had no idea that it was going to happen or had happened, until when? When the police arrested Kyle of course, just like Clayton R. Hildreth, the Stake President in Montana( driving to Boise, Idaho, to have sex with a 14 year old girl, arriving with condoms, a gift of a thong for the girl and a digital camera), the BYU professor Robert Jackson, the returned missionaries/MTC teachers(Oleg Barabash and Paul Turner) and of course, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir member, Robert Matthews. I guess you can't get any closer to Hinckley than the choir, unless they were in the hierarchy, right?

Just a note, to expound on Oleg Barabash, from the Salt Lake Tribune and the court documents:

"[Oleg] Barabash was arrested in May for allegedly molesting the boy, who was 12 at the time, several times over a period of months, beginning about September 2005. Barabash allegedly touched the boy’s penis, kissed him on the lips, sat the boy on his lap, exposed his penis to the boy and played a game pretending the boy was a baby so Oleg could remove his 'diaper', court documents state."

And this sick, perverted, piece of shit worked at the MTC and went to BYU, completely undetected(what spirit of discernment) until when? When the victim came forward and THE POLICE ARRESTED HIM!! Are you getting the picture? Oh yeah, and his buddies from the MTC coming to cheer him on and support him, was certainly a nice touch, wasn't it?

I mean we can go all the way back to Mark Hofmann defrauding and selling them forgeries and blowing people up, and George P. Lee(a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy), who was sexually molesting a young girl for 3 years, all undetected, right under the hierarchy's noses, until the police arrested them of course. I'm just trying really hard to figure out what exactly Hinckley is a Prophet, Seer and Revelator of?

If he can't detect future sexual abuse, that affects these children they claim to love so much, than what the hell is he getting revelation about? In other words, he's worthless!! He doesn't know anymore about anything that's going to happen than you or I or Mickey Mouse. And people stand and sing "We Thank Thee O God For A Prophet" when he walks in a room and sustain him by raising their right hand? Why? For what reason? What in the name of the Mormon God or any God or Buddha, has he done to deserve that?

He can't predict Tsunamis(laughing it up with Larry King and presenting him his genealogy, the night before 250,000 people were killed), earthquakes, storms, hurricanes, tornadoes, flooding, fires, murder, sex abuse, rape, incest, pedophilia, etc, etc, etc, even by Mormons, some in top leadership positions of trust. So I'll ask again...what exactly is he getting revelations about?

Oh yeah, the really important stuff, like; "build a conference center", "build a visitor center at BYU named after me", "buy Jesus some shopping malls and serve liquor in them, but be closed on Sunday to 'keep the Sabbath day holy'", "re-design all of downtown Salt Lake, putting the Presiding Bishop in charge of the whole construction project", "build luxury resorts in Hawaii", "buy gaming preserves and more cattle ranches", "buy more land in Hawaii, in order to build a 600 home housing development" , "invest in tobacco and alcohol companies, along with those that make hundreds of millions from hard-core porno" and then the biggies...."women can only wear one earing in each ear(according to Bednar, it's a 'relationship breaker' and 'Prophet's pleading') and "READ THE BOOK OF MOR(M)ON, by the end of the year."

Wow, what absolutely stunning revelations and insights, from God's one and only "authorized" and "anointed mouthpiece!!"

How about calling J. Willard Marriott to be an Area Seventy, and assigning him to speak at Stake Conferences, about how the Mormon church has NEVER been involved in a scandal, EVER, while he profits hundreds of millions from porno and alcohol sales in his hotels, on an annual basis? Need I go on?

There are so many other completely "useless revelations", that I could go on forever and ever, like not having any more missionary homecomings or farewells and no more open houses either, because quite frankly, they don't deserve them, as Hinckley said.

Meanwhile, he's inspired to have massive murals painted of himself(and Joseph Smith) and paraded around a football stadium of dedicated cult followers, while the children sang and danced and worshiped him(and Joseph Smith-I thought it was a Joseph Smith birthday bash; where did the Hinckley mural come into play?), as the audience cheered wildly and bounced around a huge, inflated Book of Mormon. My God, it sounds like North Korea, doesn't it? Holy shit!!

Then he's inspired by the Mormon God, to have personal birthday bashes for himself, nationally televised on the BYU channel and here locally on KSL, the NBC affiliate, with famous people being flown in to narrate, like Mike Wallace and then Donny Osmond and Gladys Knight to serenade him, as he just sits back smiling and soaking it all up, like the cult leader he truly is. Just remember though, according to his daughters; he's very shy, humble and hates the limelight. Yeah, it sure looks like it, as he waves his cane around in every public appearance.

Anyway, I'd like you TBMS out there to explain this to me and all ex-Mormons and the rest of world that cares about it; why doesn't Gordon B. Hinckley ever save any lives from tragedies, prevent sexual molestations and rape and murder or kidnappings or terrorist attacks or warn the world about natural disasters? Why don't missionaries deserve homecomings and farewells, but he deserves million dollar, televised birthday bashes? Anyone?

Also, please don't respond with the bullshit about "free agency baby." If it was all about "free agency", then Noah wouldn't have built the ark and Moses wouldn't have parted the Red Sea(you do still believe those are literal accounts don't you?), and there would never be any intervention of any kind, right?

If you do believe that the Mormon God intervenes, like Ballard claimed the other day, when the missionaries that were taken hostage in Nigeria were released; then please explain why he intervened for them, but allows other Mormon missionaries(and other innocents all around the world on a daily basis) to be brutally raped and tortured for hours and killed regularly?

So, does the Mormon God only hear "Mormon prayers"(since only worthy Mormons can have "The Gift Of The Mormon Holy Ghost") and even then it's a pick and choose deal, that we can't ever understand in this life, due to some higher purpose and plan of the mysterious, schizophrenic Mormon God?

By the way, this blog and my podcasts, are a no burning bosom/testimony zone, and I want facts, evidence and answers that involve logic, truth and reasoning, not mystical, self-fabricated feelings that come from some supposed bosom thats on fire. In other words, I want REAL ANSWERS and not apologetic BULLSHIT!!

I'll be awaiting your responses.

Will The Racist Mormon History, Doctrines And Teachings, By Past Prophets And Apostles, Be Big Trouble For Mitt Romney And The Mormon Hierarchy?!!

It sure looks like it to me, when it is being openly discussed on national TV shows, like "The Today Show", especially by a prominent black woman, Janet Langhart Cohen, in regards to Mitt Romney and the upcoming US Presidential election. William and Janet Langhart Cohen have written a new book entitled "Love In Black And White" discussing racism, religion, love and their marriage.

In any case, it most certainly isn't a good thing for the Mormon Hierarhcy to hear this being openly discussed, especially when Mitt Romney himself, the Mormon in question, refuses to discuss his religion and refers everyone to church headquarters, if they want answers about what Mormons believe.

Oh, he doesn't know yet what he believes and "it isn't his job" to explain why he calls himself a "devout Mormon" and to explain what that means and what he and his church believe?

Call me crazy, but the man was both a Bishop and Stake President and is very well versed in Mormon theology, teachings, doctrines and history. If he isn't, he's a complete idiot, with the callings and experience he's had. Don't let this slick snake-oil salesmen fool he knows exactly what he's saying and not saying and he isn't the clueless, bumbling idiot he pretends to be when asked about Mormonism.

The fact is, the Mormon Hierarchy can't continue to run from their racist teachings anymore, because that's all they've been doing since their beginning, and especially since 1978 and they are now being exposed. Thankfully, Mitt Romney's run for President, is helping to expose the Mormon cult and their evil, vile racism, along with many other horrific beliefs and teachings, for all the world to finally see, in all its shame.

It's funny to see how they've been trying so desperately to hide everything, especially in the new Internet age(which caught them completely by surprise), and they just keep getting exposed more and more everyday by me, other ex-Mormons and even "The Today Show." It's about time the world knew the truth!!

So, the best thing that happened for the world, is Mitt Romney running for President. The worst thing that could have happened to Mormonism and the Mormon Hierarchy and their cult, is Mitt Romney running for President. But, they are too dumb to realize that, in their overzealousness to get a Mormon in the Whitehouse, which dates back to Joseph Smith, when he ran for President and failed miserably.

After all, the "US Constitution will literally hang by a thread" and it will be the Mormons that rush in and save it, right? What better place to be, to make that happen, than in the Whitehouse, with Hinckley or Monson on speed dial, right? I always wondered how that was going to happen. Of course those of us that have escaped the Mormon cult, now realize that was just pure fantasy and bullshit and the Mormons are never gonna save anybody from anything, let alone the US Constitution.

In any case, I'm sure many current and future Mormon cult members and investigators, will now be taking a 2nd look at what exactly Mormonism has taught and believed since 1820, that otherwise wouldn't have and will they ever be surprised and shocked at what they find.

America wants to know and the world wants to know and they have a right to know the "real truth" and they are now finding out about these horrific racist teachings, that the Mormon Hierarchy REFUSES to apologize for and repudiate and that they've tried to sweep into their closet full of too many skeletons to count.

I've said it a thousand times, and I'll say it a thousand more, but it's the truth and reality, fully supported by the facts. The fact that they still profit from them and sell these racist teachings everyday in BYU, Deseret and now Seagull bookstores, says it all for me.

In this video clip, Janet Langhart Cohen, makes some great points about the history of Mormon racism and I want to go through them one by one, to show that what she said is exactly true. One thing she was wrong on though, is that it ended in 1978...which it clearly didn't. Just look at the November 2006 Ensign centerfold of GAs(pages 64 and 65) and you won't find one black man there anywhere, just like pre-1978. So, nothing has changed at all!! Like the old saying says; "the more things change, the more they stay the same."

Blacks may have been given the Priesthood in 1978, but all of the Mormon Hierarchy's racist teachings, regarding the origins of the black race and that they were cursed in the pre-existence, have stood and as I mentioned, are still sold and supported by the current Mormon Hierarchy, including Hinckley, The First Presidency and the Twelve Apostles.

Also, even if the Mormon racism had officially ended in 1978, some explanation, other than "God is this giant, raving, lunatic racist in the sky and we were just waiting on him to change his racist mind", is necessary, isn't it?

They really expect the world to believe that the world's "one and only true God" of "the one and only true church" , Mr. "all powerful of the Universe and all creation", that loves everyone equally, was just a big bad racist until 1978 and then came around, because they prayed and pleaded a lot? Are you kidding me? I mean, that's laughable, but shows how stupid the Mormon Hierarchy is and how stupid they think the world is to buy their BS!!

I guess it would make sense though, that if the Mormon God is a racist(which he clearly is and was), that he would put in place racist Prophets and Apostles, to fully support and carry out his racist teachings and doctrines, right?

Janet Langhart Cohen said:

"But if you understand the Mormon faith, up until 1978, an interracial marriage, the Mormons would have considered a sin, they would have considered me, as an African American cursed, that God didn't hear my prayers, that I was inferior."

So, up until 1978, was interracial marriage considered a sin? Well, Kimball claims it isn't "a sin", but "not expedient" and then goes on to list all the reasons why. As I quoted in the above video, Brigham Young not only believed it was a SIN, but promoted and taught "death on the spot" and said that "it will always be so" and Mark E. Peterson made it clear that his posterity would be "cursed", if there was even "ONE DROP OF NEGRO BLOOD" in his children.

So please allow me to share the following quotes, from former Mormon Prophets and Apostles, regrading interracial marriage and I'll then let you all decide where Mormonism stood on the issue and in my opinion, still stands on the issue, since once again, none of these statements have ever been repudiated, apologized for or corrected, in any way, shape or form and are still sold today, in Mormon Hierarchy owned and run bookstores:

Brigham Young:

Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so (Journal of Discourses, vol. 10, p. 110).

Mark E. Peterson:

We must not inter-marry with the Negro. Why? If I were to marry a Negro woman and have children by her, my children would all be cursed as to the priesthood. . . . If there is one drop of Negro blood in my children, as I have read to you, they receive the curse. (Race Problems—As They Affect the Church, speech by Mark E. Petersen, BYU, August 27, 1954).

Spencer W. Kimball:

Cultural differences pose dangers for marriage. When I said you must teach your people to overcome their prejudices and accept the Indians, I did not mean that you would encourage intermarriage. I mean that they should be brothers, to worship together and to work together and to play together; but we must discourage intermarriage, not because it is sin. I would like to make this very emphatic. A couple has not committed sin if an Indian boy and a white girl are married, or vice versa. It isn’t a transgression like the transgressions of which many are guilty. But it is not expedient. Marriage statistics and our general experience convince us that marriage is not easy. It is difficult when all factors are favorable. The divorces increase constantly, even where the spouses have the same general background of race, religion, finances, education, and otherwise. (58-08)

The interrace marriage problem is not one of inferiority or superiority. It may be that your son is better educated and may be superior in his culture, and yet it may be on the other hand that she is superior to him. It is a matter of backgrounds. The difficulties and hazards of marriage are greatly increased where backgrounds are different. For a wealthy person to marry a pauper promises difficulties. For an ignoramus to marry one with a doctor’s degree promises difficulties, heartaches, misunderstandings, and broken marriages.

When one considers marriage, it should be an unselfish thing, but there is not much selflessness when two people of different races plan marriage. They must be thinking selfishly of themselves. They certainly are not considering the problems that will beset each other and that will beset their children.

If your son thinks he loves this girl, he would not want to inflict upon her loneliness and unhappiness; and if he thinks that his affection for her will solve all her problems, he should do some more mature thinking.

We are unanimous, all of the Brethren, in feeling and recommending that Indians marry Indians, and Mexicans marry Mexicans; the Chinese marry Chinese and the Japanese marry Japanese; that the Caucasians marry the Caucasians, and the Arabs marry Arabs.
(0/0/59) (Spencer W. Kimball, The Teachings of Spencer W. Kimball, edited by Edward L. Kimball [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1982], 303.)

Boyd K. Packer says:

"Now, one other subject. It's been the policy of the Church--and it's been spoken on many occasions--that as the gathering of Israel is in Mexico for the Mexicans, in Tonga for the Tongans, in China for the Chinese, and so on, so has been our counsel as it relates to marriage."

"We've always counseled in the Church for our Mexican members to marry Mexicans, our Japanese members to marry Japanese, our Caucasians to marry Caucasians, our Polynesian members to marry Polynesians. The counsel has been wise. You may say again, "Well, I know of exceptions." I do, too, and they've been very successful marriages. I know some of them. You might even say, "I can show you local Church leaders or perhaps even general leaders who have married out of their race." I say, "Yes--exceptions." Then I would remind you of that Relief Society woman's near-scriptural statement, 'We'd like to follow the rule first, and then we'll take care of the exceptions.'"

"For every exception we can show you tens and hundreds, and I suppose thousands, who were not happy. Plan, young people, to marry into your own race. This counsel is good, and I hope our branch presidents are listening and paying attention. The counsel is good."

"Things are not always easy when we receive counsel, whether the counsel is to return to serve among our own people or whether it is counsel to marry among our own culture and racial backgrounds. Always there is a decision. Always we can say, "We're an exception." But I say, in the words of that Relief Society sister, 'As for me, I'm going to follow the rule first; and then, should there be an exception, perhaps that will be made known.'"
Follow The Rule, by Boyd K. Packer given on January 14, 1977.)

June 9,1978 - First Presidency announces "priesthood now available to all worthy male members." First Presidency secretary Francis M. Gibbons writes that this change "seemed to relieve them of a subtle sense of guilt they had felt over the years."

June 17,1978 - Church News headline "Interracial Marriage Discouraged" in the same issue which announces authorization of priesthood for those of black African descent. Sources at church headquarters indicate that Apostle Mark E. Petersen requires this emphasis.

So, at one time, according to Brigham Young, it required your life and you deserved "death on the spot", it was such a serious issue. Then Kimball strongly discourages it, as does the entire Mormon Hierarchy, but says that it isn't a sin. Boyd K. Packer says, "It's been the policy of the Church--and it's been spoken on many occasions--that as the gathering of Israel is in Mexico for the Mexicans, in Tonga for the Tongans, in China for the Chinese, and so on, so has been our counsel as it relates to marriage."

So, it's at least crystal clear that the Mormon Hierarchy was and still is against interracial marriage, but they tolerate it, only because they have to...but you've all been warned against it and know how they feel regarding the issue. Also, don't think that you are like Mormon leaders or the Mormon Hierarchy that have interracial marriages and that you are "an exception."

I do find it amazing, ironic and sad, as I noted above, that in the very same issue of the Church News, where they announced that Blacks could finally have the Priesthood, after 148 years of racism; that they had to throw on the headline of "Interracial Marriage Discouraged." I think that pretty much says it all and tells us how they really feel and that if it had really been up to them(and if they didn't have to cave to the pressures of society and the threat of losing their tax-exempt status); things never would have changed. Once again, in my opinion, giving blacks the Priesthood was a financial decision, just like every other thing they do.

So, once again, Janet Langhart Cohen said:

"But if you understand the Mormon faith, up until 1978, an interracial marriage, the Mormons would have considered a sin, they would have considered me, as an African American cursed, that God didn't hear my prayers, that I was inferior."

So, I've now covered the interracial marriage issue and what the Mormon Prophets and Apostles have taught regarding that and it's clear that official Mormon doctrine states, that all blacks are cursed with "black skin", a "flat nose", are the "seed of Cain", are an "inferior race" and "representative of Satan" himself, were "unworthy in the pre-existence/first estate", etc, etc, as I clearly show in the video. So, now what about the last part, where she commented that the Mormon Hierarchy taught that "God didn't hear my prayers, that I was inferior?"

Well, I've also covered the inferior part, but I haven't yet found anything specific in the Mormon doctrines or teachings, saying that God didn't hear the prayers of black people, but the circumstantial evidence is pretty damn powerful and overwhelming, showing that that would obviously have to be the case.

Considering that in July 1967, the Church-wide Priesthood Bulletin prohibited women from praying in sacrament meeting, and the ban stayed in effect until December 29, 1978, that would also have had to obviously include all black women and probably men too, since they couldn't have the Priesthood, which was obviously a requirement to pray in Sacrament meeting at that time. How many of you even knew about that one? So, it's official that God didn't hear the prayers of any women, including black women, in Sacrament meeting, since they were banned from even praying at all. Wow, what a nice, loving Mormon God!!

To be honest, I had forgotten that ALL WOMEN were forbidden to pray in Sacrament DISGRACEFUL!! You can almost just stop at the racism and sexism, by God's supposed "anointed Prophets, Seers and Revelators" and have enough ammunition to know that it's all nothing but a crock of shit and a complete fraud, run by nothing by bigoted, racist men. They should just rename the Mormon church "Corporation Racist/Sexist/homophobic Cult!!"

So, let's go into detail, what black people weren't able to do, in the Mormon church, before the 1978 so called "Priesthood revelation" and see if God was listening to their prayers or not:

1. Black men, women and children were banned from all the temples. Black men didn't have the Priesthood, Black women were banned just because of their skin color and black children couldn't do baptisms for the dead, because of their skin color and the fact that they were CURSED and the seed of Cain.

2. This temple banning of all blacks, also meant that black couples could not be sealed together in the temple, children couldn't be sealed to their parents and thus they couldn't be an "Eternal Family", which is the main marketing slogan of Mormonism. Why any blacks joined the Mormon church before 1978, I'll never know, but there certainly weren't very many.

3. Due to not having the Priesthood, black men(or boys), could not bless or pass the sacrament, they couldn't bless their children or wives when they were sick or needed comfort. Instead, they had to call on the white men of the church, to come to their house and do it, since they weren't worthy and were CURSED as the seed of Cain. They also couldn't bless their houses, or dedicate a grave at a funeral, serve missions(which was really a blessing), etc, etc.

4-Due to the Priesthood ban, black men couldn't ever have any type of leadership role in the Mormon church at all and they could only sit silently by and watch the white men run the church. When you look at todays Mormon Hierarchy, including the First Presidency, Apostles, Presiding Bishopric and Seventies, nothing has changed one iota, as there isn't one black man in any of those positions and there has been only one black Seventy since 1978, Helvécio Martins.

So, I would say that the racist, Mormon God wasn't listening to or answering the prayers of black folks in the Mormon church, for at least 148 years, since they couldn't have the Priesthood, go to the temple or even have the very basic "Mormon Eternal Family." I mean let's face it, they were just numbers in the church, weren't cared about at all and couldn't do jack shit at any level, even in their own home. Why would anyone subject themselves to this bigotry and racism?!! An even better question is how can anyone today, that is currently active in the Mormon church, even begin to excuse, justify and rationalize this bigoted and racist behavior and teachings, as if they are no big deal and don't matter.

By the way, I'm still waiting patiently(almost 2 years now) for a doctrinal explanation, of why it was, that black women were also banned from the temple. I've mentioned this so many times and not one person, not even the Mormon apologists that heckle my blogs and videos, and that send me nasty, threatening Emails, have dared to respond. You know why? They know that it was for one reason and one reason only....they were banned because they had black skin, and were cursed as the seed of Cain, which is the same reason black men couldn't have the Priesthood. If that isn't blatant racism, I don't know what is. WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

So, back to the title of this post: "Will The Racist Mormon History, Doctrines And Teachings, By Past Prophets And Apostles, Be Big Trouble For Mitt Romney And The Mormon Hierarchy?!!"

After everything I just mentioned above, I would say absolutely yes and I want everyone reading this to forward this post to someone else or multiple people and let the world know, one person at a time, about the racist Mormon teachings and doctrines that still stand today as truth, to the Mormon Hierarchy. Like I often say, the Mormon Hierarchy can try to run and cover-up and lie, but they can't hide and I will continue to expose their dirty secrets and sins every chance I get, for all the world to see.

If the current Mormon Hierarchy didn't still believe their past racist teachings, they would repudiate them and offer an "official apology" to the world and then stop printing and selling them, which they will never, EVER do. I guess better to be an inspired, RACIST Prophet or Apostle, of a RACIST Mormon God, than to apologize to the world and have to admit to the litany of mistakes, doctrines of bigotry and hate and false teachings that have been made and taught by the "we can't lead you astray or God will remove us Hierarchy", right?

Basically, an apology would be an admission of guilt, that the church and its members were severely misguided, led astray and that the Mormon church isn't led by inspiration, or Prophets or Apostles and therefore isn't the "one and only true church" that they claim it is, which would bring it to its knees.

So, the bottom line folks, is that they will never apologize for their racist past and teachings(even if they didn't truly believe them) because they can't and too much money and too many cult members, current and future, are riding on not apologizing. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!

They are playing the odds very stupidly, that they can hide it all in the closet and keep it hidden there; but thanks to Mitt Romney and all of the ex-Mormons blogging, it is now taking center stage and out of the closet for all the world to finally see.

In the end, it will be their utter arrogance and pride, and refusal to apologize or repent(their refusal to follow the very same repentance process they hold members to) of their past sins, that will bring the church and the Mormon Hierarchy to it's very knees.

So, thanks Mitt Romney, for running for President, so that the world can finally learn the real "Mormon Truth" and see the long hidden skeletons of Mormonism as they tumble and fall out of the closet, in a big, gigantic pile. The next couple of years will be amongst the most embarrassing in Mormon history, as people turn to the Internet in mass, all around the US and world, to learn the facts about Mormonism.

They will then find out the horrific truth, from people like myself, all of you reading this that leave your comments and all of the ex-Mormon bloggers out there, who after spending our whole life in the Mormon church, discovered it was a cult and uncovered the lies, fraud and deceit.

Mormon missionary work and conversions will absolutely tank worse than they already have in the US and this will probably happen all around the world. The funniest thing is, Mitt won't even get the Republican nomination and it will have all be for naught!! So, all you Mormons out there, get ready for the nightmare scenario, as your little "1/5th of 1% of the worlds population" cult, will finally be exposed for what it truly is. You can either learn the truth now or later, but you will know the truth soon.

The question is; what will you do with that truth once you learn it? Will you become a disgusting, loathsome Mormon apologist, with no moral values, like Daniel C. Peterson and then begin to defend, excuse and justify all the Mormon Hierarchy's teachings of hate, racism, sexism, etc, or will you have the inner strength, to admit that these things are wrong and couldn't have possibly come from men of God and to walk away from the Mormon cult?

Everyone has decisions to make in life and this will be your decision to make and us ex-Mormons know it isn't an easy one, to decide to walk away from Mormonism, after a lifetime of dedication and indoctrination, to what we once thought was "the one and only true church on earth."

Just know that we'll always be here for you in "Mormon Truth" and that you'll always have a place to come and we wish you the best of luck in your "journey to the real truth."

Gordon B Hinckley/Jesus Christ And The Mormon Cult Hierarchy, Finally Respond To The Movie "September Dawn", About The Mountain Meadows Massacre!!

Well, here it is, the long anticipated Mormon Hierarchy response to the Mountain Meadows Massacre Trailer, that I posted on January 24, 2007. Trust me, they have not disappointed and once again, speak in complete ignorance(since they haven't actually seen the film yet) and of course lie, by saying:

"From what we know of this movie, it is a fictional portrayal before, during and after the tragic events at Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857. This film is a serious distortion of history."

Now, I find it absolutely fascinating and damning, that the "OFFICIAL" Gordon B. Hinckley response would be those words, considering Hinckley went to Mountain Meadows on Sept 11, 1999, for the dedication of a rebuilt monument to supposedly bring closure and healing, and said:

"No one can explain what happened in these meadows 142 years ago. We may speculate, but we do not know. We do not understand it. We cannot comprehend it. We can only say that the past is long since gone."


"All who knew firsthand about what occurred here are long since gone. Let the book of the past be closed. Let peace come into our hearts."

Once again, the Prophet Hinckley pretending to not have a clue about something, that he knows everything about. Amazing how little the Mormon "Prophet, Seer and Revelator" really professes to know sometimes, isn't it?

Hinckley also said:

"That which we have done here must never be construed as an acknowledgment of the part of the church of any complicity in the occurrences of that fateful day."

The line was inserted into his speech on the advice of attorneys for the Corporation of the President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints."(The Salt Lake Tribune, March 14, 2000-by Christopher Smith)

So, to recap, now Hinckley's/Jesus' "official statement" for the world is: "from what we know of this movie, it is a fictional portrayal before, during and after the tragic events at Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857. This film is a SERIOUS DISTORTION of history."

And in 1999, Hinckley's/Jesus' "official statement" was:

"No one can explain what happened in these meadows 142 years ago. We may speculate, but we do not know. We do not understand it. We cannot comprehend it. We can only say that the past is long since gone."

So, which is it Gordo and Jesus, as you need to get your story straight here: is the movie(which you haven't even seen yet) a "fictional portrayal" and "serious distortion of history", or something that you "can't explain", and "have no idea about what happened there 142 years ago", or are you "just speculating" again, but really "do not know?" Or is it that you "don't understand it", "cannot comprehend it" and only care that "the past is long since gone."

Well that "long since gone past" is back baby, right in your face, and it's gonna be on movie screens all around the USA and the world, showing people what really happened and the truth, which you have conveniently pretended not to have any idea about, until a movie comes out, that you now call "a serious distortion of history." Selective memory there Hinckley?

If you know the truth Hinckley(which he clearly does), now is the time to talk and confess your lies and sins!! You said you didn't know what happened, but now you suddenly do know exactly what did and didn't happen?

Yeah, I'll say it's a "serious distortion of history" going on here, but it doesn't sound like it's coming from the movie, rather Hinckley's mouth.

The movie comes out nationwide on May 4, 2007. My advice to all Mormons is go see it and learn some "Real Mormon Truth" for a change, because you'll never hear it from Hinckley and his gang or in Sunday School, Priesthood, Sacrament meeting, the temple, a mission, the MTC, seminary, institute, Firesides, Devotionals, LDS(dot)org, or any other church sanctioned magazine, manual, book or website.

It really is amazing and extremely ironic, when Hollywood is more honest than your "one and only true" church, and your "infallible Prophet that can't lead you astray", isn't it?

Here is the link to my original post, containing the trailer for "September Dawn."

Gordon B. Hinckley And A Walk Down Memory Lane; Oh Yeah And He Hated His Mission And Wanted To Come Home...He Felt His Mission Was A Waste Of Time!!

This is a great video clip(thanks again to Paul Maughn), highlighting a few parts of the Mormon Hierarchy's biography of Gordon B. Hinckley. I first saw the complete biography about 3 months after discovering the truth and I was blown away by some of the things that Hinckley said and by how the Church has basically coddled him and his family since he was born.

Hinckley has had an easy life and couldn't possible relate to normal folks, since everything he's personally had since about 19, has been handed to him on a silver platter, by the Mormon church. I mean his first house was even given to him by his dad after getting married. I'm sure his dad did so well, due to his dad being an Apostle. If we could all be so lucky, right?

This should help everyone understand how Hinckley himself can order homeless people who have lost everything, to "pay their tithing" and then order his Seventies(like Elder Lynn G. Robbins) and Apostles, to stand at the pulpit and coldly preach that everyone should "pay their tithing", before "feeding their families" and that "there's no one too poor" to not pay tithing or be taught the principle.

MP3 File

This should also explain how people like James E. Faust, the third top-dog in the church, can brag about how the poor Mormons in Argentina, gave up their gold fillings as a sacrifice to build a temple in Brazil and that others should follow their example.

What about the man in Africa, who was unemployed, had a ton of kids and no way to feed them? Well, he can give the church 1 out of every 10 geese eggs, according to Earl C. Tingey. Shouldn't the Mormon Hierarchy be helping him instead?

MP3 File

How about Hinckley canceling all missionary homecomings and farewells, because they didn't deserve them and "Why should they have them" and that they will see their family when they get home(if they don't get killed on their mission).

Gordon B. Hinckley is a very arrogant, pompous, cold, condescending man who only cares about one thing; HIMSELF. He throws big birthday parties for himself every 5 years, that cost millions. He personally flies in Donny Osmond, Galdys Knight, Mike Wallace, etc, all to honor and serenade him, in his $500 million Gordy-dome, with the full compliment of security and medical people and it's all televised on KSL, KBYU, BYU-TV and then archived on

Hinckley is an egomaniac and yet his daughters talk about "how shy and introverted he is" and "how he hates all of the attention." What a crock of shit!! Hinckley loves it when he walks into a room, the Gordy-dome or a football stadium and everyone stands up and starts singing "We Thank Thee O God For A Prophet(Profit)" and he then waves his cane at everyone.

He lives in a $2 million + condo, gets driven around in a Lexus and Lincoln, flies around the world in a private jet, stays in 5 star hotels and eats the finest cuisine money can buy.

When traveling around the world and speaking to missionaries, he trashes them by telling them that if they are sick or aren't baptizing, it is their fault, most likely due to disobedience and sin(because Jesus can't protect them from illness if they are sinners) and that they are a hindrance to the work. He said that when a missionary is sick, "they are a burden to their companion and the work grinds to a halt."

You see, Hinckley doesn't give two shits about the sick missionary, just as they didn't on my mission(whether it was me or someone else), rather they only care about statistics and numbers, especially baptisms. Like Ballard says, he doesn't care if missionaries "are killed" or get "hurt", because the work must go on.

MP3 File

I mean damn, you watch your companion get run over by a train, you're raped at gun point for hours, along with your companion, or you watch your companion get shot and bleed to death in the street, you watch your companion get hit and killed by a truck, etc, etc, and you are fully expected to not miss a beat and just continue on with your mission, no matter what. How sad is that?

And people actually say that this isn't a cult? In the Mormon church, especially for missionaries, who are paying their own way I might add; it's back to work and "get those damn numbers and quit being a nuisance and hindrance to the work." There's no counseling or help and sadly, many of their families also want them to finish their mission too, because they are just as brainwashed as their missionary sons and daughters.

It truly is tragic what this awful cult does to people and that is why I do what I do and I thank all of you out there that support me and what I'm doing and for having the courage to fight against this Billion dollar Mormon cult corporation. I'm finding out lately that it is more destructive than I thought it was and is creating some very demented, sick and twisted people, some of which are sadly my family and friends.

Take care everyone and stay strong as the Mormon apologists ramp up their personal attacks against us, because they have ZERO conscience and will do and say anything for their Joe, Jesus, Hinckley and Mormon cult!!

Utah's Spin On Mitt Romney's "Nightline Interview" And Presidential Campaign.

This video is the local, Utah, ABC affiliate's opinion and take on Mitt Romney. If they kissed his ass anymore, we'd have to call a proctologist.

It's pretty obvious that these folks are either Mormons, or love Mormons and Mitt Romney more than life itself.

Mitt Romney--The Mormon Presidential Candidate, Is Interviewed By Nightline.

This was the interview that Mitt Romney did on January 29, 2007 with ABC's Nightline.

He once again doesn't want to talk about the Mormon religion very much and says that the US Constitution would come first, if he were President, in response to the question regarding the Mormon Prophet having the final word or trying to influence him in any way.

Mitt does however admit that he is a "TRUE-BELIEVING and DEVOUT Mormon" and "very proud of his heritage."

Too bad he doesn't want to discuss openly the thing that he's so proud of, right? Remember in Mormonism, they always preach that it's not just a religion, but who you are and a lifestyle.

So, if that's the case, why is Mitt trying to separate himself so much from his "lifestyle" and "who he is." The question is rhetorical for us ex-Mormons that know damn well why he wants to distance himself from the Mormon cult.

He doesn't want to look "weird" or "peculiar", rather normal, which is hard to do when you are a Mormon running for President.

Julia Sweeney, The Comedian/Playwright, Shares Her Experience With 2 Mormon Missionaries. It Just Reminds Us How dumb The Story Of Mormonism Really Is

Download this talk: Audio (MP3) | Video (MP4) | GoogleVideo

More TEDTalks: TEDTalks website | iTunes (audio) | iTunes (video)

One of you guys out there Emailed this to me today and I want to say thanks. I didn't know if you wanted me to reveal your name of not, so I won't, but I loved this video and laughed my ass off. For anyone else out there, that encounters something great like this, please drop me an Email, so that I can share it here in Mormon Truth.

After all of the literally thousands of hours of research I've spent and all that I've learned and discovered; sometimes it's just nice to hear a knowledgeable outsider and never-Mormon, just dumb it down, applying the "world's common sense" and "logical thinking", to Mormon theology and teachings. The laughter from the audience says it all.

The whole video is great in my opinion and very funny, but if you just want to see the Mormon part, you'll have to wait for it to load and then fast forward to the 7:38 mark.

Here is the link to the
blog I was referred to:

Julia Sweeney on TEDTalks

Julia Sweeney is a comedian and playwright, well-known both for her stint on Saturday Night Live (She created the character "Pat.") and for writing and performing the hit Broadway show, "God Said Ha!" (produced also as a film). Here, she performs an excerpt from her new one-woman play, "Letting Go of God." [Recorded February, 2006 in Monterey, CA. Duration: 17:16]

As always, I look forward to everyone's comments,
