One of the most INTERESTING aspects having a blog like this is the number of people who come on here and comment, and then
say “I am not a Mormon, but don’t you think it must be true?” Uh huh. No.
However, sometimes the “I’m not a Mormon but you suck,” tactics are a little different. Our newest and “goodest” friend “Bob” has this to say about me and all our Trapped denizens. (Note: I find it important to note that Bob, based on his email address, is either in junior high or high school. For that reason, I would ask that anyone commenting on this post NOT use profanity, despite the fact Bob himself was pretty darned profane. (Oh, and he needs to use spellchecker, too. Spellcheck, Bob!)
mormons do not beleive in pologimy. Poligimists beleve in pologimy
Wow. How profound. But you are wrong. Mormons do believe in polygamy, and in fact, it is a tenet that is still taught, although not usually to young Mormons such as yourself. They save that stuff for later, when you are more firmly entrenched with little hope of EVER extricating yourself. The milk before the meat theory.
“Bob” also said:
screw u all for saying mormons are bad. Catholics are racist as heck and molest kids. i wonder if michael is catholic. scientologists r nerdy sci-fi geeks or gay. Babtists are redneck hicks and bang there cousins, as well as other relegion. If u dont want to live in utah the doors aren’t closed. feel free to get the fuck out. I am not a mormon, i just can’t stand ur pregidous shit. infact if u hate mormons, and other relegions leave
thank u bitches
First of all, Bobby, I didn’t say Mormons are bad. I like Mormons. I’ve said it many times. I don’t agree with the tenets of the religion itself, and the abuses that go down in the “name” of that belief system, but Mormons themselves? Most are cool.
As for the rest of your comments… Good God, is this the state of our youth? Is this what we have created? Furthermore, are they TEACHING spelling and grammar in our public school system?
I emailed “Bob’s” school district and provided them the comments and the email address from whence they hailed, not because they made me angry. They did not. They made me sad. I think Bob’s parents need to know what Bob is saying and doing when he is supposed to working on homework or chatting with his friends. Or even worse, using his school computer to disperse the “look over there at them” theory of religion in a particularly disgusting, racist and abusive manner.
FYI, note to commenter Wayne, who wants to be heard. I read your comments, and frankly, don’t feel they deserve to be addressed. This is not the “Christians Rock and Mormons Blow” blog. The argument that so-called Christians are throwing stones is irrelevant and does not fly, because those “Christians” are non-existent. I cited Richard Packham’s information because it was thorough and complete. His personal belief system really has nothing to do with it. On this blog, I do not approach Mormonism from a Christian standpoint.
Richard’s being an atheist is irrelevant.
