Does the phrase 'give it a rest' ring a bell with you?


If you had a person who was an atheist who was attempting to represent you and your beliefs....would you lay down and be a door mat?  What about a terrorist who is claiming to the world that Islam is terrorism.....thus opening you and your family to yet more prejustices?

If you had come across an impersonator who had accessed your bank would you not defend yourself?  Where I lay my treasure is far greater than any bank account.



Oh LOL! LOL! LOL!

First it was "your mind is warped...probably by something like pornography or illegal drugs". Now it's "Atheism is akin to terrorism!"

You are a truly obsessed looney who is pretending to be a Mormon.

I am a faithful Latter-Day Saint who is openly skeptical about God as an exalted man, who grew up on another planet, and The Book of Abraham.

If you feel you need to "defend yourself" from honest theological discussions, be my guest. Let me quote J. Reuben Clark, who said:
"If we have the truth, it cannot be harmed by investigation. If we have not the truth, it ought to be harmed."

Let's forget about the obsessive personalities for a moment. I can't believe that no one here has asked a serious question about Mormon doctrine and theology.

Given that Sister Waters has quoted troublesome material which has long since been deprecated, I think it's appropriate to open up the discussion to a serious dialogue about all the peculiar teachings in Mormonism.

If you, or anyone, would like to ask a historical or theological question about Mormonism, please feel free. We'll turn this into a serious thread on our own, with or without the approval of our resident missionaries.

Its not that we have not tried to question those things but after a while you just get sick of the same ol' answers.

Admittedly, this whole discussion hasn't been worth that much. If it's worth anything, it does suggest that my interpretation of Mormonism is much more grounded in the real world than Sister Waters'.

I will never give anyone the same old answers they would get from an internet apologist or a doe-eyed teenage missionary. I'll give you the truth, backed up by objective references.

So, if you ever wanted to play Ask A Mormon Anything, here's your chance.
