Respecting Religious Beliefs and Requests

Post by moksha »

We have been asked to refrain from using the words Mormon and LDS by President Nelson. The new word which we are supposed to use in place of Mormon to honor the request of President Nelson is Cojcolds.

The new Mormon name Cojcolds is pronounced "codge colds". It is quite a mouth full but it is respecting the wishes of the former Mormon Church.

Hope all you ex-Cojcolds are able to comply without too much difficulty.

As a point of general interest, we Pastafarians (analogous to the now disfavored term Mormons) remain free to use FSM (analogous to Cojcolds' now disfavored term LDS). We also have no issues with The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

In fact, Pastafarians are free to do pretty much whatever they feel appropriate (in general accordance with the Golden Rule) without perceived disrespect, insult, or sin against His Noodley Goodness.

Best of all, we Pastafarians can simply forget about religion for extended periods of time and still be warmly welcomed should we elect to sit down to a delicious spaghetti feast with fellow Pirates.

Ok, thanks for the important revelation. (I coulda had a V-8!) I do have a question, Brother Moksha. What is a coj and will you bare your testimony about why it must be colds?

Just after I asked you that question, I happened to find this - must be revelation!!!!

So, now I propose that next Sunday’s opening hymn be https://youtu.be/QrY9eHkXTa4 ... By the raise of the right toe everyone manifest... any opposable toes? It’s unanimous!!!!

Be thankful that the Church of Ziontology (Ziontologists) was not chosen to replace Mormon Church (Mormons).

Why? Just COZ.

Moksha, I hate to break it to you, but “what’s in a name”?

I just heard preaching in Sacrament meeting that reflected zionist ideologies... https://rense.com//general60/zcre.htm

Here, Mike.

It's Nice Day. Put on your Nice Clothes and go down to the Nice Place. Sit there with the Nice People and sing Nice Songs. Think Nice Thoughts. Hear a Nice Talk. Have some Nice Prayers. Go home and enjoy your Nice Feeling.

Isn't it Nice?

Is comedy not allowed in the celestial forum? Have you no sense of humor?

I suggest listening to some Perfume. It will induce a blissful state of understanding and tolerance.
Riding on a speeding train; trapped inside a revolving door;
Lost in the riddle of a quatrain; Stuck in an elevator between floors.
One focal point in a random world can change your direction:
One step where events converge may alter your perception.
