Ordain Mormon Women

Posted by skiutah on Monday, June 23, 2014

This woman is about 20 or 30 years too early in her quest to hold the Mormon priesthood: Mormon woman facing excommuncation

Just like Black people, the Mormon leaders will eventually realize there’s a huge upside to allowing women to hold the priesthood, but because of the hardness of their hearts, it will take the Mormon leaders about 20 or 30 years longer than the rest of the world to receive this revelation…

Group Unveils Satan Statue Design for OK

Posted by skiutah on Monday, January 13, 2014

A religious group wants to put a statue of Satan at the Oklahoma state capital: Satan statue going to Oklahoma

Person A: My religion is correct, yours is wrong.
Person B: No, my religion is correct, yours is wrong.

The logical answer is that they’re all wrong. Humans have been arguing (and killing) like this for thousands and thousands of years…

Electrick Children

Posted by skiutah on Tuesday, October 1, 2013

Here’s a movie about a Mormon girl who believes she’s become miraculously impregnated (like Mary): Electrick Children

The young girl’s parents (devout believers in Jesus) know it’s impossible for her to become miraculously impregnated.

Thus the movie highlights an ironic flaw in human nature: Intelligent people can accept as true the unbelievable while simultaneously reasoning the belief is false.

Woman, know thy place

Posted by skiutah on Tuesday, March 26, 2013

This opinion was printed in the Salt Lake Tribune: Woman, know thy place

Here’s the text, this is classic:

I read “April Mormon conference may make history: women will pray” (Tribune, March 19) with great disappointment. I may be a male-chauvinist piglet to many women, yet the fundamentals of scripture are unchanging.

The Apostle Paul divinely stated in 1 Corinthians 14:34-35: “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

Woman was created for man; this world was made for men to lead households and prayers. Man was created in God’s image — not in a woman’s image.

American society has become so politically correct that it has spilled over to theology. Women, as well as children, may sing in church and participate in other ways.

If Brigham Young were alive today, I’m certain he would denounce women overshadowing the proper sphere of men. The sexes have different roles.

God Used Beer to Create Human Civilization

Posted by skiutah on Thursday, January 17, 2013

Scientists have found evidence humans began brewing alcohol 11,000 years ago in Turkey. Many experts believe that beer was a key component of early human societies that fueled the rise of human civilization. The article states “”Production and consumption of alcoholic beverages is an important factor in feasts facilitating the cohesion of social groups, … and in organizing collective work.”

http://www.livescience.com/25855-stone-age-beer-brewery-discovered.html

Some questions:

11,000 years ago, why did God use alcohol to enable the rise of human civilization?

Did Eve look better to Adam only after Adam had quaffed a few beers? Thus ensuring the propagation of the human species.

Was the “apple” in the Garden of Eden (in Missouri) in reality applejack?

Why did God wait until 1833 (D&C 89) to instruct humans that beer was bad? Why not decree prohibition 11,000 years ago?

When God introduced polygamy into modern human society (D&C 132), did God foresee that polygamy and alcohol were a bad mixture? What was God thinking? Can you imagine?
