What a mind**** that mormonism is.

Its a good thing Joseph Smith did not abort fetuses and eat them! Otherwise Mormons like this unwitting fool would force themselves to see it was a test for Joseph from a loving father in heaven. :rolleyes:

You don't have to remain a member Greg. LDS Inc is not the only true church on earth as that does not exist. :evil:

Open your mind. Free yourself from feeling the need to defend that which you naturally find offensive. :smile:

Trimble is trying to rewrite history, and redefine the entire mormon church.

Here is the thing. I wish his theory about DC 132 and polygamy was correct. .. it would make the church look much better and more palatable.

Here is one nugget to show just how far Mormons will go to justify their sins. This is some scary s***.... and yet all my Mormons friends are decrying the Muslims in France on facebook this week.

To “not kill” is the general law that is calculated to bring happiness for following it in this life. But then at times God has required people to break that law in order to follow a temporary law that is an exception to the general law.


He then goes on and describes and JUSTIFIES several examples of genocide, including infanticide from the scriptures.

Christ, look in the mirror people.

Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar did not enjoy the exceptional commandment to create a plural family. The Bible makes that really clear. This was the first major test that Abraham had in order to prove that he was willing to do anything that the Lord commanded him. Abraham didn’t want to marry Hagar and have a child with her or else he would have done so sooner. He wanted to be married to Sarah and have a child with her but the Lord prolonged that event in order to test their faith and teach them about sacrifice. As a result of their obedience…they were blessed with Isaac in miracle like fashion.

Unfortunately…Abraham and Sarah were not yet done being tested. Abraham was once again being asked to disobey a general law in order to obey an exceptional law. The Lord tells him to take his son Isaac to Mt Moriah, to bind him, and to sacrifice him. 


If plural marriage is a painful sacrifice for all of the good parties involved…then why would the Lord require it to continue in the Celestial kingdom. Why would God condemn the practice of plural marriage so strongly…even calling it “abominable” if it was in fact a celestial law. Because based on these scriptures…the “sacrifice” is eventually brought to an end so that happiness can be restored as it was with Abraham


The Mormon god is such a dick.

He's just channeling Joseph Smith's original justification for polygamy:

Quote:
Happiness is the object and design of our existence, and will be the end thereof if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God. But we cannot keep all the commandments without first knowing them, and we cannot expect to know all, or more than we now know unless we comply with or keep those we have already received.

That which is wrong under one circumstance, may be and often is, right under another. God said thou shalt not kill,—at another time he said thou shalt utterly destroy. This is the principle on which the government of heaven is conducted–by revelation adapted to the circumstances in which the children of the kingdom are placed. Whatever God requires is right, no matter what it is, although we may not see the reason thereof till long after the events transpire.

The Mormon god is such a dick.

Speaking of dicks, in simple terms, the test was not upon Joe to put his dick into many vaginas. No the test was for #1 Emma to know her husband is screwing many other women and #2 these women knew that Joe was screwing many other women and his only legal wife.

This any Mormon male who defends Joseph's infidelity and abuse of women deserves to be a tool of LDS Inc. I do feel sorry for his wife, as she like the others is the one who must swallow her angst conjured up by thoughts of sharing Greg with another lady in the ward.

It is quite possible that many men look around the ward and think, "I'd take her for a second, and her for a third.." and so on

The poor wives look around the ward at the other women and wonder, "Could I share my husband with her? or her? or that hot little 19 year old?" :eek:

Another gem from Greg. Wow, somehow this makes polygamy all right? Oh the mental gymnastics that mormonism requires of it's members.

Quote:
8. If you think polygamy is weird…consider the incest that must have had to occur during the time that Adam and Eve were raising their families. Again…if you believe the Bible…you believe that this happened.

You know Polygamy-Porter, who needs anti Mormons to destroy the church? The church, and it's faithful members like Trimble, are their own worst enemy.

Thanks Greg, I couldn't have said it better. Not only is the Book of Mormon a made up pile of dog s***, but so is the bible. Got it, Greg, and I couldn't agree more. It's all made up and the points don't matter!

Greg Trimble will believe anything, swallow anything, justify anything.
A more wilfully blind individual cannot be found within Mormonism.

I have to be careful here to not out myself. Dear Brother is a fairly 'high profile' Mormon. Bishop several times, Stake President two different stakes. In Temple Presidency of high profile temple, Temple Sealer, Patriarch, Contemporary and friends with Bill Marriott and worked for BYU Foundation and facilitated some rather large donations from the Marriott family to Brigham Young.

He's old now, (over 80), and won't be around many more years, but still, I don't talk to him about the Church's Truth Crisis.

:lol: That is one of the funniest movies I have seen! Thanks for that link! I wonder how many people were motivated by the original 1922 film on which it was based to investigate the church because they realized that it couldn't possibly be that ridiculous, and wound up become converts upon finding out how little the church actually resembled how it was portrayed in the film.
