Re: BobF2012 of Kitchener, ON
Sorry, Mr. BobF, but you didn't answer even one of the issues raised by Jared H. And in the answers you did give, you quote biblical advice to individuals, which are fully endorsed by good conservatives. None of the biblical advice is directed toward the government, which has no money or resources of its own until after they plunder it from the individual.
Your second concept, that government need not act morally because government issues are "Caesar's," and that things which are "God's" should be strictly separated from government just doesn't wash for those who believe in government of the people, by the people, and for the people, because the people need to inject morality into "their" government.
You reference Canada as a good example. Well, right now we are living in Ontario, Canada, and Canada is a perfect example of all that is wrong with socialism, with socialized medicine and health care, and all that is wrong with the welfare state. Also, Canadians have given up their right to bear arms, so they'll never have better than what they have. Sad!

2 close to call basically states that President Young and many of the early Presidents (prophets) of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints lead it astray because of their teachings of polgamy and the celestial kingdom. How so is my question? They were teachings of which only 5% of all membership actually entered into. Yes, there were some problems but for the most part no. That practice would still possibly be ineffect today if revelation had not been received removing the practice. However, we as a membership do not know that for sure. Although I'm sure some of our critics will state that Elder McConkie stated that someday it would be instituted again and definitely practiced during the second coming of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

These men are mouthpieces of the Lord. They receive revelation and inspiration from our Heavenly Father and his son, Jesus Christ. That is pure doctrine of our religion. Revelation is received quite often depending on circumstances. Each temple as to where it is to be built and its structure is revelation. The Proclamation to the World, the Family can be said to be revelation. It is the will of the Father.

Whoa! Hold it right there!

This guy ADMITS he's an agnostic, "agnostic", meaning a person who is not sure if God is even real or not (not as hard core as an athiest who patently says "There is no God." but still someone who does not have much, if any, faith in God) and yet he (the offended member) is claiming that this is all political and nothing more than retributional?

Give me a break!

If being a self-admitted agnostic is not out of harmony with the teachings and beliefs of the LDS church then what is???

How long, Lord, how long?.....

And lastly, to be in full fellowship in the LDS Church, in other words, have a Temple recommend, one needs to answer several very pointed questions. One of them involves whether or not you are affiliated with any organization that in any way goes against the teachings of the Church. This guy seems to have been. Either he quits and repents, or he has disciplinary action. I hope the Church will always hold a tough standard for it's members. If peoples beliefs, politics or otherwise don't allow them to conform, then they should leave, not try to change Church doctrine.
