Kansas City Blogging Mormon Changes

This town's most prolific faith blogger offers his insights and criticism into a faith community that famously passed through Meth town but then, wisely, kept moving West. Take a look:

Damn, tony slept in today. Must have been banging some slut all night. Anyway, Mormons suck. Not as bad as Muslims, though. I think the first Mormon was a guy named Bring-em Young.

^^I think you're lonely. You sound desperate for contact. Maybe get of a blog and go into the real world. You wouldn't sound like such a loser then.

The Mormons were started by Joseph ("Honest Joe") Smith, who made his living by finding water sources, lost animals and items, and "treasure" for people (sometimes) by dropping a "seer Stone" into his hat, sticking his face in the hat, and "seeing" the location of whatever he was looking for. Later he started sticking his face in the hat and dictating his "translation" of The Book Of Mormon!

Later on, good old "Honest Joe" cast his gaze on the fifteen year old daughter of one of his "converts" and lo and behold, received a Revelation From God that polygamy was righteous, and it was okay for him to get the comely lass into the sack.

His wife and eldest son weren't exactly thrilled by Honest Joe's "revelation", so they split the "religion" and formed the LDS(now calling themselves "The Community Of Christ").

It's worth noting that male followers of both the Mormons and LDS believe that when they die they will become the equals of God and will receive their very own Planet to rule.

"Honest Joe" Smith pioneered the path that would later be followed by such luminaries as L. Ron Hubbard, Billy Graham, Joel Osteen and many, many, many others.

Most profound statement of any religion:

"Pass the plate."

Bill Tammeus, please just shut up. Your own denomination...the Presbyterians...is dying. It's full of homosexuals and Israel haters. Clean up your own club before you judge anyone else. Better yet, disband. And why are you a member anyway? Didn't your pastor at the time duck your wife?

^^^Huh? Wonder if you are smart enough to take your own advice....nope. Probably not.

12:55 on an amusing note the local atheist group passes the plate. Imagine contributing money for your belief in...nothing.

^^No, I don't want to imagine it because I have a life. You don't, so you imagine it.
