I am still working on the one I meant to post last week but the one I posted today came so quickly and easily I decided to put it up. If you read it – I shall be happy to hear your comments. The book that inspired it is one you must read – “The Sins of Brother Curtis” by Lisa Davis (Scribner’s 2011). What an eye opener. I am sure the LDS will spin like dervishes. Another excellent work on another aspect of the Mormon culture’s propensity for bending the rules and the laws of the land is “Secrets and Wives” by Sanjiv Bhattacharya (2011). Both highly recommended.

More Mormon Mysteries Revealed. Explained? No. September 13, 2011

This information comes from a book entitled “The Sins of Brother Curtis” by Lisa Davis, Scribner’s 2011. It is a history of the serial pedophilia of one Mormon man and how the Mormons covered it up for decades using money,lawyers, religious mumbo jumbo, The US Constitution and lies to allow the assault and devastation of young boys – even as they knew it was happening serially.

It reveals a scarier and basic, important truth I did not know.

The Mormons have invented a cult that is so malleable and has so many loopholes it covers every ass that slips out naked. Their use of our Constitution is one of their mainstays – although from its inception, Mormonism supported and promoted polygamy – a crime in the USA. They are a very clever lot. They paid for Prop 8. Two are running for POTUS. Think twice before you find either of those men the lesser of any evils. Here is what I found out:

The Mormon Church has a deeper historical connection to the Constitution than most people know. “The church teaches that the Constitution of the United States was divinely inspired by men whom God chose as its authors. One Mormon prophet wrote of being visited in a Mormon Temple by a Founding Father, who instructed him that the church must protect the Constitution. The idea that the Constituion was handed down from God “by the hands of wise men” is canonized in Doctrines and Covenants, one of the fundamental works of the church. In 1957, Mormon president J. Reuben Clark Jr., a former undersecretary of state for whom the Brigham Young Law School is named, gave a well-known address on the Constitution in which he said :

“I declare that the divine sanction thus repeatedly given by the Lord himself to the Constitution of the United States as it came from the hands of the frames with its coterminous* Bill of Rights, makes principles of that document an integral part of any religious faith. It is a revelation from the Lord I believe and reverence its God-inspired provisions. My faith, my knowledge, my testimony of the Restored Gospel, based on the divine principle of continuous revelation, compel me to so believe. Thus has the Lord approved of or political system, an approval, as far as I know, such as he has given to no other political system of any other people in the world since the time of Jesus.”

[Put that in your pipe and smoke it – it leaves very little wiggle room]

It so happens that the defining case in U.S. law on matters of religious liberty also involves the Church of Jesus Christ LDS. In 1878, a man named George Reynolds was convicted for bigamy in Utah. He challenged the conviction before the SCOTUS arguing that it was his constitutionally protected religious duty as a Mormon to marry multiple wives – (Mormon Doctrine includes a revelation from God to Joseph Smith that males are to practice polygamy or face “damnation in the life to come”). The Court ruled against Reynolds,noting that the government cannot constitutionally dictate religious belief, but can regulate actions. Reynolds v. US set a legal precedent for such matters and has been quoted in lawsuits ever since…. The court famously wrote, “Can a man excuse his illegal practices…because of his religious belief? To permit this would be to make the professed doctrines of religious belief superior to the law of the land, and in effect to permit every citizen to become a law unto himself, Government would exist only in name under such circumstances…”

Because the LDS belief is that if a man or woman who is excommunicated from the church, takes measures to cast off their former and ostensibly evil ways, they may be re-baptized as if nothing had happened previously. The slate is literally wiped clean and never to be mentioned again. Serial pedophiles such as Brother Curtis, exercised this loophole more than once. He moved around and raped little boys.

What does all this have to do with the GOP candidates or truly any one who declares themself a prophet of the Almighty who makes up the rules as he or she goes along and keeps secrets? Well, friends, it makes me ice-cold and very scared. It says to me that under the perfect teeth and hair not out-of-place, that it hides agendas, lies, opportunities, secrets and justifications that put many Americans in great jeopardy. Not just from pedophiles or serial polygamists but from men who hear voices and answer with their own. Men who believe they are speaking for a creation that may or may not even exist. That they know MUCH MORE than their constituents do and therefore MUST run the show. SO having bored you with this little piece of Mormon doctrine – I ask you to mention to anyone you like or pass it on but more than that – I warn you. And I am serious. The current candidates all have a little Mormon in them in my opinion – and some have a complete set of Mormon DNA. Be very careful.

Prop 8 – Part Two November 8, 2008

Part Two

Here is why Mormon money and Prop 8 don’t work for me.  I loathe hypocrisy and I loathe deception and  I really don’t like sneaky, secretive old white men telling people that “God said _____________”  Fill in the blank.    The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints has some gall,  colossal nerve and sinister smugness trying to shove this holier than thou crap on the public.  And the use of the word “traditional”really seals the deal for me.  Let’s look at Mormon marriage.  Mormons take marriage very seriously.  Which is fine.  But instead of a joyful family celebration, Mormon weddings tend to be bleak and depressing.  Don’t let the Youtube Mormon wedding videos fool you.  That is all done before the rites take place.  Things get dramatically, well,  dramatic once the man and woman leave the safety of kith and kin and enter the Sanctum Sanctorum.  Instead of trying to describe in my own words I direct you to this link that will really leave you speechless. (Complete with circles and arrows and “the secret garment”).  FYI:They also wear a fig leaf when getting hitched).  http://http://www.lds-mormon.com/veilworker/endowment1.shtml

By my own standards this is anything but “traditional” marriage as I have come to know it.  It is secret (and therefore it may be silly and/or shameful) and exclusionary and frankly odd.  Most Gay couple just have a wedding or go to City Hall.  Most straight people do too.  Orthodox Jewish weddings are quite ritualized but anyone can watch.  Mormonism is a faith founded on polygamy by its “Prophet Joseph Smith” and some writing that he translated from “Reformed Egyptian” in secret.  In 1890, to become a state in the union it banned plural marriage.  Not very well apparently because it is still practiced by some Mormon Americans in defiance of numerous laws.  FYI – when it says “plural marriage – it means wives.  Woman don’t have plural husbands and they don’t have equal rights.  Neither do children.  They also swap wives in these fundamentalist sects – but the women don’t get to say yes or no.) To have been audacious enough to support a change to the California constitution to exclude human citizens from marriage should strike you as hilarious on many levels – it isn’t.  Prop 8, it is claimed, was done for moral reasons.  A religion based on secret ceremonies and handshakes; marrying dead people to each other so they will be together in Heaven for eternity so they will land on the planet Kobol and become God makes them uniquely unqualified to tell other folks how to live their lives by my moral standards.  But then I don’t judge gay people who want to get married.  We have separation of church and state and  I don’t believe religious money,influences, groups and advocates should have standing to amend any constitution in this country.  It inflicts religious behavior on America citizens.  I think lawmakers should make the laws for everyone. Same sex marriage threatens NO ONE.  The LDS should be ashamed of itself and I suggest they ay not stop at Prop 8.  In closing ,I also think that having Mormon missionaries at your door qualifies as a Close Encounter of the Third Kind.   You may even find yourself beamed up.  Gay trekkies take note.
