Close mind...

...insert dogma, part two.

This time it's from a man: "What it all comes down to on our part, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is obedience. We may not necessarily understand why we are asked to do certain things and it may be really hard for us to agree, but we must do it. If you have a problem with it, pray to know if it is right. If you are still struggling, just do as you are asked and the Lord will take care of the rest. But if the prophet says it, do it. Yes, these decisions can be hard, but we have a prophet inspired to guide us through these moral questions so that we can worry about the things that are more important. Don’t lose sight of the most important things. Just be obedient."

Yeah, wouldn't want to do any thinking of your own. That could lead to bad places. Like actually working for equal rights for people that you said are "the kindest, open and the most non-judgmental people I have ever met. They are warm, welcome and enthusiastic. They are optimistic. I love them."

And you love them by working to take away a fundamental right?

This from a church that was driven out of three states because they held a different view of marriage. Can you say "ironic?"

that's too bad that your so spiteful towards the mormon church. perhaps if you took information directly from church websites, and not just some self-proclaimed mormons (of which, you can't verify their claims nor their identity) you'd see a whole different picture. but then again, that would make you have to look for the TRUTH, and juding from your blog, you're not interested in that!

When I comment I blogs, I use my actual name, because I stand behind what I say.

You prefer to hide behind a veil it seems.

I've read the church's position. My comment here (and in another blog post) is focused on individual members who have -- apparently against their instinct and better judgment -- decided to blindly follow the leadership rather than think for themselves.

Please point to any lies you have found on this blog. My truth is rational, provable truth and does not rely on books of questionable authority or provenance.
