If you happen upon the url, www.mormonssuck.com, please be aware you have been TRAPPED, misled, and filled with half truths and dumb interpretations. Mormonssuck.com is actually run by an ardent Mormon named Joshua, and he figures you will discover, by reading his Web site, that in fact, Mormons DO NOT suck. He doesn’t offer much to prove this, and honestly, I agree. Mormons are great. I love Mormons. Some of my very favorite human beings are Mormon. I personally find the religion silly and baseless, but hey, to each his own.
That said, Joshua thinks it’s perfectly all right for him to run a Web site for the express purpose of touting his religion as the only true thing, and yet is UTTERLY offended that I have the very GALL to do the same thing… Uh, sorta. After all, I am not touting any “one true thing.” But other than that, it’s really similar. How can he not see that?
Message: What a dumb website… Can you imagine a website called \”Trapped by the Jews\”??? Filled with half truths and dumb interpretations, your website serves as nothing more than a sick display of religious bigotry and arrogant self-promoting in an attempt to exploit a religious group.
Here was my email response to Josh.
Where ever is your sense of humor? It’s not a “literal” trapped, and in fact is a tongue-on-cheek play on a very old, very campy film, also titled TRAPPED BY THE MORMONS.
Sick display of religious bigotry? I think not. In addition, where are those half-truths? And the dumb interpretations? It’s easy to spout out angry euphemisms, but can you back it up with fact? I think not. You’re just mad because I am not one of the “faith promoting” mass Mormons, like yourself.
Open your eyes. You’ll see there is an entire world out there, and it’s filled with a few people who don’t take themselves so seriously. And quit comparing yourself to the Jews. It ain’t flying. Oh, yeah, and while you are at it, quit BAPTIZING them, too. They have their own religion, thanks, and I sure haven’t seen any of them trying to baptize all of YOUR relatives.
Love and kisses,
Well, let me tell you, he did NOT appreciate my response. No he did not.
Here’s what he had to say then.
What a childish retort. If you’d like to baptize my relatives, feel free. Since I know you don’t have the authority of God to do such, it don’t bug me. I’m more mature than that.
And the comparison is valid. You wouldn’t dare mock other religions, only Mormonism, because you’ve been suckered into Anti-Mormon stupidity. Like the half-cocked complaint about the error in the Ward Directory… Clue, those can have printing errors and aren’t always up-to-date. If they were, I am no longer a member. Why? Cause I am not in there at all!!! So my missing entries trump your errored entry.
I could take weeks knocking over every dumb claim of yours, but why? Your a bigot.. And religious bigots are the worst kind because they grasp ANYTHING negative they can. So my points would be lost.
Common sense and common decency are lost on Josh. And of course, he isn’t BOTHERING to discount ANY of my so called “half truths” and “religious bigotry,” because he CAN’T. And he’s rude, too.
Here was my response back to him.
“You are arrogant and one of the worst kind of idiots. You think you are right, and have the AUTHORITY of God to back you up. The Jews and the blacks will LOVE reading your comparisons.
But dearheart, ethnicity and color are NOT a choice. Religion? Now that is. You missed that somewhere along the way. And it is not a valid comparison.
You are about as mature as a toddler. You’re pissed off and you will yell and shout and scream and stamp your feet until you get heard. You feel that YOU can knock on every door in the world and tell EVERYONE that they are wrong and you are right, but you don’t accord me the same right.
And me? I am happy to spotlight all of your idiocy for the world to see, because I’ve found that people like you do more damage than a million anti-Mormons could ever do.”
But before I could even get THAT sent, he sent me THIS email:
The worst part? You profit on your bigotry. You take tired old anti-Mormon themes and push them out as “truth”.
But hey.. I am an aspiring writer. I want to write a book about white women being trapped by blacks. How they force the white women to eat watermelon and cornbread and how they rape them each night to try to turn them black in a secret plot to breed white people.
How bout I call it “Trapped by the Niggers”?
Well, that one just astounded me. I barely know what to say, except, LOOKOUT. The furor will fly after those stupid remarks. I think I will send a copy of Josh’s email to the Church HQ, so they can see what kind of missionary work he is doing.
On the heels of Josh’s angry email, came yet ANOTHER one. From someone else.
Message: I almost feel sorry as to how misinformed you are. Your twisted ideas of my church make me sick. The only thing in your way is that you can\’t see past what you can\’t prove. If you prove everything, whats left to believe in?
Silly, silly boy. Please, tell me what I have twisted? As usual, you won’t. Mostly because you CAN’T. As Joshua cannot, so he resorts to angry, childish, bigoted responses.
See, I am not BIGOTED toward Mormons. I JUST don’t believe that their religious MANTRA is true. In fact, I think it’s a load of crap heaped on them by one of the world’s greatest con mans. Of course, Joseph Smith Jr. was aided along by a few circumstances, such as the anger he incited in the locals by marrying lots of women among other things, and his death was actually the impetus for the church’s growth and success. If Brigham Young had not taken the Saints to Utah, isolated them, created his own little theocracy and ruled like a king, well, Mormonism would probably have died right out. But out in the desolate land of Utah, it flourished and thrived.
And people that didn’t agree with Mormon beliefs were treated just about like I am being treated by Josh and Nate. I haven’t twisted any beliefs, and as is usual, examples are not given.
Particularly interesting to me was Nate’s comment, “If you prove everything, what’s left to believe in?”
Uh, shouldn’t you believe in the things you CAN prove? Are you saying that you prefer your belief system to be unfounded and unsubstantiated and easily debunked? And if something CAN be proved, then it isn’t true or logical, and you won’t believe in it?
