Did you hear what poster boy Phil the duck guy offered as advice to young men
about finding a wife? Yeah, religion and culture continue to merge. Unlike same
sex marriage, however, it's a marriage of convenience.
Yeah Hutt- Did you see the advice of Brigham Young on how many wives to have and
their proper age of eligibility?Religion, culture and practice
continued for well beyond 1890 in Utah and the Mexican territories for faithful
Mormons. Many of our grandfolk did their prison time and went right back to
their plural families.There are well over 50,000 polygamists in your state
alone. Convenience it wasn't. They were taught that their very celestial
exaltation depended on it.Do modern LDS just think that if they
click their heels the rest of the world will forget everything they ever
taught/practiced/published on plural marriage will vanish?
Exactly Filo,I have to laugh at all the post from Utah locals who
claim that marriage has always been defined as "one man and one woman"
and that it has nor will ever change.Selective memory to be sure
Joe Blow, how many same-sex couples end up becoming gods like Heavenly Father?
None, and if Heavenly Father continues to have it His way, it will never happen.
Any same-sex union is valid for this life ONLY and will never persist into
eternity. So, it is a waste of time and energy to be involved in a terminal
marriage. If any of you beg to differ, then show me in any book that claims to
be the word of God that allows for same-sex unions to gain any semblance of
exaltation and eternal life. It is against the mind and will of God and there
is absolutely NOTHING that you and gay marriage proponents can do or say about
it. You may overcome the temporary, mortal voice of the people, but that is as
far as it will go. God's word is fixed, immovable, just, and righteous.
It is not a worthy endeavor to try and change His mind about it. He is bound by
eternal laws and so are we. I must issue you a caveat if you feel like trying
to screw around with those universal laws and precepts.
Tahoemormon70,There is no evidence of there even being a god, and you are
conjecting what he/she creates, accepts, does: that is funny. Tell us what did
he have for breakfast, is he against ogm cereals.
How quickly we drift off the subject. There are logical responses to four of the
previous posts, but they've all been hashed over many times on other
threads. Let's get back to the subject of religion and culture WITHOUT the
LDS & God-bashing.I'm interested in the fact that we're
coming back full circle in a way. The earliest TV programming had, if not direct
religious content, at least strong Judaeo-Christian values and strong ethics.
The Sunday morning & afternoon programming was nearly all religious in
nature. Then, when the '60's "New Morality" hit, sex and
violence took center stage. We've been reaping the whirlwind every since.
