    ^Been seeing these all over... Don't know if the Church is Preppin' for Mitt or what...

    I've Known some Mormons in my Day...

    Here's the thing that sticks out about these Billboards.

    Other than White People on them.

    More than one Mormon has said that the Blacks and Hispanics and other "Dark" people were Punished by God and given the Darker Skin...

    And that there are different Levels of Heaven.

    Is this True about the Mormon Faith?

    :)

    peace...

    It used to be a tenet of the mormon religion that dark skinned people, namely Africans, were stained with the "Mark of Cain." However, this tenet has been officially renounced by the LDS for some time.

    There are black and hispanic mormons.

    Mormonism may be "kooky," but in the end analysis, it is realy no more kooky than most mainstream religions. Just the idea that someone died on the cross, was buried for three days, and rose from the dead, requires considerable suspension of objective reasoning. Indeed, if you can believe that story, then all else follows.

    Mormons are the only White People I Know Personally who are Outwardly Racist, and it's about this Cain thing...

    Whether or not it's been Officially Renounced, the Followers I Know Tend towards it still.

    I don't like that.

    And Colorado is not Mormon Fundamentalist Stronghold. :thup:

    :)

    peace...

    I think that's correct, wasn't the mormon religion the last religion to come around in terms of letting blacks in the churches?


    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I have no idea...

    I just know that Mormons tend to Feel Comfortable talking about the Lower Level that the Darkies will Occupy if they are lucky enough to be let into their Heaven... If it's an Exclusively White Venue that they are in.

    It's not as Creepy as Tom Cruise's Cult, but it's Odd all the same.

    Very entertaining to see non Mormons telling us what Mormons believe. You'll forgive me if I give the opinions of actual Mormons more weight than a bunch of morons.

    Looks like I was mistaken, blacks could become mormon, just sadly they were forbidden to become priests all the way up until 1978.

    I haven't seen any personal instances of mormons being racist (haven't had much personal interaction with mormons to be honest, dated a former mormon) but Brigham Young certainly had a very low opinion of black people.

    Black people and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This link also provides the great efforts of mormons in humanitarian aid in Africa, shouldn't go without mention.

    If you want to know about mormons, you could read the Book of Mormon for yourself. You can get one free here:
