When blacks couldn't hold the priesthood, Southern Baptists still had racially segregated congregations. When it comes to opposing same sex marriage, don't forget the Catholic Church and fundamentalist Christians. Mormons shouldn't take it personally. Atheist evangelism just needs a timely symbol for the crusade.

No God Allowed.

Shame on Atheism.

It is more than a little cynical and hypocritical for people who don't believe in God to worry themselves about people who do?

And for the record people with a same sex attraction are welcomed with both arms into the LDS Church. They are however not excluded from living the law of chastity just like everybody else.

For the record:
1. Blacks in the Church - old issue, resolved years ago.
2. See rifleman's comment on same sex attraction.

The billboard is accurate.

And this group is completely within its Constitutional rights.

Deal with it.

To: A Scientist - Provo, UT: I am not sure what your definition of correct is here. From my earlier post:
For the record:
1. Blacks in the Church - old issue, resolved years ago.
2. See rifleman's comment on same sex attraction.

The doors of the LDS Church have always been open to all. As Rifleman pointed out above: "They are however not excluded from living the law of chastity just like everybody else." The rules apply evenly and fairly to all. The "black" issue has long since been resolved. The poster seems to be out of date with current LDS doctrine. However, they have the right to show inccorect data all they want.

For the record, please actually read the billboard.

I challenge you to find anything inaccurate in it.

The Deuce
Livermore, CA

To: A Scientist - Provo, UT: First, the issue regarding the Blacks stated on the poster is decades old at this point. It is no longer relevant.

Second, the doors of the LDS Church have been and still are open to everyone. This goes for everyone. Whether or not one wants to affiliate and remain an active member of the LDS Church is the sole responsibility of the individual. The poster is quite misleading regarding this issue. Did that answer your question and clarify the issues?

to The Deuce: So since that black thing is all settled. Was God a racist or was it church leaders not paying attention to what god was telling them? somebody changed their mind, who?

And since the atheists missed it Can a woman enter the highest kingdom without a man?

Happy Valley Heretic: Neither man or woman can enter the highest kingdom without the other. It requires both a man and a woman.
