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 – In Defense of Traditional Marriage? November 7, 2008

“Proposition 8 is a California State ballot proposition that would amend the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman. It would overturn a recent California Supreme Court decision that had recognized same-sex marriage in California as a fundamental right. The official ballot title language for Proposition 8 was “Eliminates Right of Same-Sex Couples to Marry”; the entirety of the text added to the constitution was: “Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California.”

This is all it said.  When you read it sounds kind of simple and silly.  I mean who has the right to decide who can marry?  Why should anyone care?   

There used to be a law that kept miscegenation from happening in this country. For those of you who are not familiar with the concept I quote Wiki: Miscegenation comes from the Latin miscere, “to mix” and genus, “kind”. The word was coined in the U.S. in 1863, and the etymology of the word is tied up with political conflicts during the American Civil War over the abolition of slavery and over the racial segregation of African-Americans. The reference to “genus” was made to emphasize the supposedly distinct biological differences between whites and non-whites. In fact, all humans belong to the same genus, Homo, to the same species, Homo sapiens and to the same subspecies, Homo sapiens sapiens. The folks who wrote Prop 8 made sure there would be no confusion about terminology.

The 14th Amendment to the US Constitution – which trumps the states says this:“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

It also says that if one state says something is legal in the said state, then the other states have to respect it.  Equal justice and equal rights are the primary issue that Prop 8 addresses and it is simply wrong..  Its inclusion into the state constitution creates a special class of citizen who is not permitted to fully experience or enjoy the privileges and rights guaranteed to others.  In fact it ensures that people who are homosexuals are not equal citizens of this country and thus not governed by the same laws nor given the same rights the constitution guarantees in Amendment 14.  In essence: “Round ’em up and keep them all together where you can make sure they don’t want things “regular” people want. ”  Sonofabitch.  Maybe we should whup ’em and sell ’em too?

The supporters don’t care. The claim they make is this : “we need to protect traditional marriage and to restore marriage”.  To be perfectly honest I had no idea that marriage was being threatened.  There was a time when “living together” was a big deal and I think marriage was feared to be threatened then, but now weddings are very popular and except for people like Gene Simmons, lots of folks want to get married.  That works for me.  Some people don’t.  That’s fine too.  And it is a widely discussed decision between people who are facing marriage.  Neither the state nor the union has any  specific moral requirement for marriage.  I was married in a civil union ceremony in a judges’ chambers.   He said I was married and although no clergy were present and no religious prayers were uttered – he said it was marriage all the same.   I’m happy.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civil_union). 

But there is a hidden agenda lurking in picture and  it really makes things sticky. Why?  Because the majority of this proposition was underwritten by the Mormon Church.  God help us if the Jews had tried this (and there are plenty of religious Jews who don’t approve of or accept same-sex unions.  But they didn’t try to change the California constitution.  Way too smart for that.)  Go to this blog for a donor tracker – it takes hours to go through but you can sure see who is and isn’t your supporter http://atomicgaywonk.blogspot.com/2008/08/proposition-8-money-tracking-resources.html.  It’s worth your time.

 But why, of all people, do the kinda’ odd Mormons imagine they have some duty to protect traditional marriage?   They say it is a moral question and my feeling is that civil laws do not decide what is moral.   The best judge on earth will tell you that the law deals with legal statutes and not morality questions.  If the Mormons don’t want same sex Mormon marriage – that’s their choice.  The same goes for the Christian church, the Jews, the Muslims and the Hindus.  Your faith, your rules. Leave it if you don’t like it.  You see though, once this kind of agenda gets attention and support it become insidious.  If we can do this – hmmm- why not try something else?  They are a missionary faith – they invade the privacy of homes to sell their beliefs and they actively seek converts.  That’s one way they got to talk about the Proposition 8 on a one to one basis with folks.  And it worked.  For the informed minds or minds that want to be informed, part two continues this post and there are some really good parts – so try to read it too,

In any event I am stewed like a prune about this whole Prop 8 matter and actively support the Gay on every level.  They are right to be outraged.  I am outraged.
