Wouldn’t an all-knowing God speak to his LIVING prophet, telling him that things were going to get dicey in the future, and maybe they ought to reconsider that whole “blacks bear the mark of Cain and can’t hold the Priesthood” thingie?
Wouldn’t this LOVING God make sure that EVERYONE knew he loved all his creations and children equally?
If he really wanted his children to follow ONE SPECIFIC RELIGION, wouldn’t he give SAME SAID SPECIFIC RELIGION the proper info to keep the peeps happy?
I mean, surely this ALL KNOWING God, the same guy who created the world in seven days, and his mouthpiece, the prophet (whoever HAPPENED to be prophet at the time, of course) would have a little sit down and discuss possible repercussions of the civil rights movement, and the anger of the African American people at being treated as “lesser thans?”
And if this DIDN’T happen, which we all know it didn’t, then does God REALLY favor the Mormons over other religions?
FYI, I’ve attached a link to a letter sent to George Romney, Mitt’s father, in which he was encouraged to step back from his civil rights activity and keep those darned “negroes” in their proper place. Kudos to George Romney for IGNORING this letter. If Mitt is half the man his father was, he’d make a pretty good president. Of course, HE ISN’T GOING TO GET ELECTED. There’s that whole pesky “Mormon” thing standing in his way.
The Mormon Church has an EXTREMELY racist past. This very sticky issue is one that you simply CAN’T ignore, and if you manage to, you are a “head in the sand” kinda Mormon. You just can’t get past it. What is wrong with Gladys Knight? Will someone please shake her? Or at least show her this letter….
