Jesus, these people are pathetic.

Their sky daddy runs the entire universe and they shit their pants because they think something looks Satanic.

Maybe try reading the bible, you dumb cunts!

Here's a whistle blower's tale of high fiduciary shenanigans by the Mormon Church:

they've set aside a cool $150,000,000,000 for the second coming.

The weird thing is, Mormons are generally very decent people.

In NZ, they're not even racist, which is lucky, because they're about 75% Pasifika and Maori.

Mormons are almost pathologically nice.

Until you look into their religious doctrine, that is.

I know all about their idiotic religion, but I find it hard to see it as worse than any of the others.

I had a good debate with a Kiwi broadcaster, Graham Hill, many years ago, when he dumped on Muhammad Ali for his stupid Black Muslim religion. I asked why what Ali believed was any dumber than the thousands of fuckwits who pray before, during and after football games to an invisible dead Jew and his dad.

Judge the person, not the religion.

While I agree with this in principle, sometimes a person's self-image is so tightly wound up with their religion that it can be hard to separate the two.

I've had some pretty vociferous conversations about this idea on ISF in the past. :)

Yeah, some people are zealots, but I've had a lot of dealings with Mormons, and none of them have ever mentioned their religion beyond being a member of LDS Church.

The wide majority of Mormons in NZ are Pasifika people and I've only had positive interactions with them.

New York, Jun 2 (EFE) a controversial state law, which allows books considered inappropriate for students to be withdrawn from educational centers.

The father indicated that the Bible contains passages about incest, rape and prostitution, and is essentially "pornographic" according to a state regulation approved in 2022, which has been used mainly by conservative groups to censor books on racial or LGBT themes, according to The Salt Lake Tribune reported this Friday.

The complaint, which involved the Davis school district in Utah, has come a long way since it was filed last December and, after being reviewed this week, a committee dedicated to the matter has decided that the Bible be withdrawn from seven or eight elementary and middle level schools, although secondary schools can maintain it.

To the surprise of many, after learning of the decision, this Friday the Republican legislator who promoted the law that restricts access to "indecent" books, Ken Ivory, who first criticized the label "pornographic" for the Bible and said that it was a " joke" and a political misrepresentation, he gave in and even thanked the committee for vetoing the religious text in the classes and libraries of the little ones.

In a Facebook post, Ivory called the Bible "tough reading" for younger students in the compulsory education system, adding that "traditionally, in America, the Bible is best taught, and best understood, in the home, and around the fireplace, like a family".

According to the Tribune, the parent who sued did so out of frustration at books being removed from schools due to conservative denunciations, a trend noted in April by major US free-speech groups. ., the American Library Association (ALA), and the writers' organization PEN America.
