Yes, it’s time again for comments from Mormons who find my blog, and then commence to ripping their eyes out from the horror–THE HORROR–of having to read such lies!
Today’s comments are from our new friend, Lynn.
Her first comment landed on the blog post where I wrote about my year end reminder that I was TRAPPED BY THE MORMONS.
You might remember that I mentioned my neighbor came by with a chocolate bar and a card from the Relief Society. On a sad side note, that same neighbor, whom I like very much, is recovering from cancer, so send your good wishes her way.
But back to the story. Our new friend Lynn wrote:
How nice to know that no matter where you are there are people who care and are willing to help you in anyway….by the way… if you tell the RS or the bishopric you want no contact from there members at all…. they will stop contacting you. Maybe you like it because it gives you something to write about.
Can I just say, WTF? How are these people helping me? The only thing a chocolate bar does is HELP MY THIGHS GROW, Lynn. They did not offer to shovel my walk, or tend my children. There was NO help offered. And if you had paid the SLIGHTEST iota of attention to my blog, you would note that I HAVE requested no contact, and I have HAD MY NAME REMOVED and it did not one damn bit of good. Not only am I BACK on the roles, but I am BACK TWICE, both under my maiden name and also under my MARRIED name, and I ALSO have a son named Robert that no one CAN LOCATE, mostly because HE DOES NOT EXIST. Phew. Okay. Hopefully I won’t have to say that again. A girl can dream.
Do your research, Lynn. Sheesh. Not only that, but you got so fixated on my ingratitude to the local Mormons and their chocolate that you TOTALLY missed Calendar Kitty. Have you no sense of humor?
Then she wrote this:
You said, “They believe that anyone who has voluntarily left the religion is an anti-Mormon.” This is for sure not true. I dont’ know one LDS member that believes this!!!
Geez, Lynn, where do you go to Church? Outer Mongolia? Now THERE they might not believe that. Other than that, what I stated is pretty much true.
And Lynn’s last little note:
The Church has NEVER said the members cannot have another ceremony. Some do. The reason why some don’t want to is when you are sealed in the Temple of the Lord it is for time and all eternity and you are sealed by a preisthood holder who has the authority from God to seal you together forever, not just until time parts us. Nothing can compare to a temple ceremony, so why have another one. I am about to be married for the first time in the Chicago Temple. I couldn’t imagine not having my husband forever, not just on earth. Only my immediate family are members of the church, and we love and respect all our non-member family members. They of course cannot enter the temple of the Lord right now in there lives, but I will have a short ring ceremony at my reception and explain to them the importance of marraige in the Lords house. Members are not on high horses or think those who cannot enter are not righteous or good people. Of course this is not true in anyway. But, it is true that the temple is a sacred place of the Lord. In it are the most sacred ordinances done on this earth. Those who enter must be prepared and must be worthy to receive those blessings the Lord has prepared for them in His house. Anyone can one day be worthy to enter and the Lord wants all of His children to one day be worthy to enter.
Muuuwaahhhhahahhhhaaaaaaaaa. I just about spewed on my computer when I really sat down and read this one. I just kind of glanced over it before. But are you freaking kidding me? (Did you notice how well I am doing on my bid not to use profanity so much?)
So glad you are going to explain to your NON MEMBER family and friends why they can’t see you married, and how they are not currently WORTHY to enter THE HOUSE OF THE LORD, but how important it is, and how much more special YOU are because you get to wear ugly underwear. But you aren’t on any fucking high horse. Ooops. I swore. It’s hard to control it in the face of such sheer arrogance.
You are talking about a church who keeps their temple ceremony SECRET because it’s so silly. You are talking about a church that has to resort to LYING and DECEPTION to convert prospective members. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A CHURCH that consistently revises and hides its history.
This is truth? “Yes, we have on the only True Church. But I must lie to you first to lure you in while I convince you.”
