Oaks goes hard on gender identity

Post by 2kings98 »

Look at Oaks go! He was powerful, resolute and strong on the matter of gender identity. It is my hope that the membership and the world takes it in the loving spirit in which it was intended. But, no. We'll be called bigots and behind the times. Sigh.

That's funny, your Mormon man god created both heterosexual and homosexual beings, so how can the World be wrong in acknowledging your Mormon man god's plan of same sex attraction?

Well, they DID say we'd have to kick against the pricks, so I'm guessing you're a troll. Even so, I will simply say that homosexuality is CHOSEN. No loving father would force such bile on his children, and our Heavenly Father is no exception.

There is a misguided youth in my stake who is, by Heavenly Father's reckoning, a boy, but who has the audacity to come to church as a girl. It's sad, but perhaps Oak's talk will make him straighten up and fly right.

Yes, yes, I fed the troll.

Hear, hear! What would 1950's mythical man do? He would try and bring us back to the mythical "good old days" when women were more property-like and LGTB were safely in the closet.

Nice of Oaks to remind those who were watching that while the church is willing to change their position on trivial matters such as the sunday schedule, it is not budging anytime soon on the bigger social issues. The church still hates the gays.

It has naught to do with hatred. It's about lovingly counseling the misguided back to the straight (pun intended) and narrow. Nothing about the Church is hateful.

Nature abhors a vacuum.
Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by rulers as useful.

If the church wants to hate gays, it has every right to. It's a free country. But it's pathetic to try to deny it. Gay people hate the Mormon church, and they don't deny it. Just be honest.

Homosexuality and parthogenesis both happen in Nature.

God apparently creates some of "his children" who are outside the norms of what many consider "natural and normal".

God did it - why fight against it?

We follow Christ, so there is no hatred. Only love.

Yep. Look at the love that was poured out at Mountain Meadows in the form of innocent blood. The Church itself is hateful. It teaches aggressive ignorance and dishonesty.

I misread the title of this thread. I thought it said "Oaks gets hard on gender identity".

Although it might be true, you would probably need to look from the side to see it through his suit coat.

Yeah, I read it that way too at first. Probably would have made a better thread topic to be honest.

Thank you, Elder Oaks, for providing more reasons to avoid your church like the spiritual toxin it is.

"Our positions on these fundamentals frequently provoke opposition to the Church. We consider that inevitable. Opposition is part of the plan, and Satan’s (the Adversary’s) most strenuous opposition is directed at whatever is most important to God’s plan. He seeks to destroy God’s work," he said.

"He also seeks to confuse gender, to distort marriage, and to discourage childbearing—especially by parents who will raise children in truth," Oaks said.

It's the language of abuse and 2Kings98 probably doesn't even realize it.

Oaks hasn't been able to get hard since the 80s. Why would anyone take sex advice from old guys who haven't had sex since Ronald Reagan's second inaugural address?

It's remarkable watching LGBT allies prepare for General Conference messages that might hurt LGBT people and them then to be legitimized the first day. Like the church waiting outside the storm to help Katrina victims, they're ready to help the church's victims.
