Wow, I didn't even know what a Mormon was before today. It's just another religion I guess, but more of a cult than a relgion if you ask me. I mean why should two God fearing individuals be shunned by achurch for thier sins? If God can forgive them then who the hell do the leaders of a church to codemn them? It's all bullcrap IMO.

It's just a religion guys, others respect yours, so everyone here should respect theirs.

If people are being cast out, then I see very much something wrong with love. People of God should comfort, exhort, being loyal, help and do whatever possible if someone is in trouble, having sinful issues to edify the Church and God.

If they are being thrown out that is a lack of love all together.

I thought that I was the only person that thought all of this... I love what Piggie8 said... And how could Piggie8 have gotten off topic?? I don't think that she did... And I don't go to that church anymore... The rest of my dad's side of the family does. From their point of view, I guess I am the black sheep, and I don't do stuff like they do. I don't get it at all... My sister is probably another black sheep too... Before I stopped going, I had allways hated going and didn't understand anything and felt so out of place there... I had been fighting about not going, and the only reason that my dad gave up, is because God apparently told him in a dream or something... I hate that some of them shun people.... Are they trying to become Amish or something?? I never liked whenever somebody said something that was looking down at other people that aren't Mormons. Some of them said that they are losers and their churches don't tell them to be good and not break the law and that the mormon church does tell them that stuff... and that it is the other churches fault that the world is messed up or something like that.... I hate what that church does to kids... They sing songs, and I look at the lyrics and it says stuff like "I am going to see the Temple someday" and "I can't wait to go on a mission" and kids sing that without even thinking about it.... and they tell them that sending money in those envelopes goes to God, but it actually goes to maintain mormon churches and to build more... I think that their recommended way of life is backwards and old fashioned... I also don't like the "Church Clothes".... I hate it when we have guests over. And I hate casseroles... Anybody that isn't having them is lucky and isn't missing anything... There are a few more people that I know of that happen to be mormons, and I never knew that unless they told me, They are very nice... I made another friend with this one guy.. but I will probably not want to be friends with him anymore... There are also some families that get on my nerves... But I hate it that one kid that most kids like and he is very enormous ( thinks that he is really strong but it only looks like that because he has a large chest and short legs ) and he is rich and lives in a giant house and talks about himself a lot, and he found out that I am a mormon ( or that I am related to them ) and he starts asking about some guy that has been dead for years, and then he starts asking about stuff that I won't even mention unless somebody asks... ( Oh, and this kid is obviously not very bright ) ... I better not write anymore for now before this gets too long...

Thanks. I agree with some of that stuff. Not all but some. Stupid people who think they are all that... they do make you feel so small and if you don't have as high standards the people can put you down so bad. And if that happens to you, you do feel out of place, just like me. I hate going. I want to go to learn, but it's not worth it of the people. I'm poor, their rich. They rub it in your face and they are all popular and just completely ignore me! I don't exist. Then when I don't go, they "care" and tell me to go and I go and they completely ignore me again. Same thing happened to my mom especially with siblings. That why the way she is. It's just plain annoying.

It's unfair to call an entire group of people "creepy." I'm surprised tvrage allows this.

I'm leaving for England shortly so I won't be here at the board. The weather of course won't be the very best for travelling but who cares! England, again! Wonderful, wonderful England! Tootles all and enjoy your holiday!

Big deal. It's still branding an entire group. It's racist. The thread should be deleted and the poster suspended for attempting to start a flame war.

What if someone said Mexicans are free loading fence jumpers and criminals. That's an opinion. Would you let the post stand for your Mexican users to read?

I think someone is mad because half the front page of the off-topic is locked threads. Have fun in Europe though. Be careful not to run into any Germans who want to torture you... Hostel Reference. Take pictures though, and blog about it. Just not any gestcrates pics.

I think the real question is why did you bring back a dead topic? No one reads past the first page, what does it matter? If there was some thread way back that insulted gay people, no one ever see, unless someone brings it back up.

With all due respect tshee, you are wrong. Religion does not define race, RACE defines race. Therefore, this can't be racist. This is more Bigotry. If you're complaining about the topic, you should bring it up to the Mod in charge of this, which would be WiseCrack. Don't enter a conversation and raise hell in an attempt to get it closed.
