    No not now a days, at least I hope not. It is in the Book of Mormon though and I was just using it as an example. Also, pretty sure the fundamentalist mormons do think blacks are inferior just like the Fundamentalist Christians go crazy about the gays.

    I love how Christians are always painted by the mainstream media as discriminatory and prejudiced. Then this same media turns around and give Muslims a pass WHO STILL HAVE SLAVERY in many of their Theocratic nations! Not to mention the horrid way they treat women! There are always references to the crusades and slavery in the US. That was centuries ago. There exists slavery today and it is not here. The USA and Christians have ALWAYS led the fight against discrimination! I understand that the US and Christians should be held to a higher standard. That is fine with me. But we ARE the higher standard. And the reason we are at such a higher level is because of the high level of Christianity imbedded in this nation. Now it is time that people realize that we are discriminatory towards gender in a very real and good way. Women are not required to register for the draft. Bathrooms are separated by gender (not race) for a reason. Sexual Orientation and gender is NOT the same as race! I am not anti-feminist. My wife is a wonderful woman that gets her way most of the time - as it should be. Now, by the same standards, it is perfectly rational for the government to favor relationships that are inherently different. One produces the next generation. The other can possibly take some sort of role in raising the next generation. I have nothing against gays getting together in recognized relationships or even adopting through agencies that will adopt to them. I don't care what goes on in people's bedrooms. What I do care about is gays seeking governments endorsement from the government on relationships that are, again, inherently different.

    Sorry, I went off on like 5 tangents but I had to get all of that out.

    It also says in the Book of Mormon that it's a sin to hate someone because of their skin color. Dark skin is a mark, not a curse. The curse was separation from God, the Dark Skin was just an easy way to let them know which group wanted to slaughter them.

    FLDS are strange strange folks.

    So, as long as it isn't YOUR ox getting gored, you don't care. Right.

    This is the sort of thing Christians have been worrying about: being threatened by government into allowing a lifestyle into Christian organizations that the church is obligated to disapprove of, namely homosexuality.

    Yeah, and I'm "just a paranoid right-wingnut" to think that one day gays will sue the Catholics and Baptists for not being allowed to marry in the church, or that one day pastors will be barred from speaking against homosexuality from the pulpit.

    It's already gone further than anyone 25 years ago would have believed. If I'd told someone in 1985 that we'd live to see gay marriage legalized in several states, and churches forced to hire gay teachers for Private Christian Schools, they would've laughed and told me I was paranoid... but here we are.
    Well to be fair my school is baring people due to acts, your saying people should be bared for the way they are born. I thought acceptance of all peoples was something Christian's taught. I mean isn't in the Bible, Love thy neighbor as thyself. I would have thought that Christianity had gotten out of the dark age by now and judged people on what they do, not how they're wired. If your baring people because of how they were born then that is flat out discrimination and against the law I would think.

    The law should only apply to government jobs, churches and other private organizations should have the right to enforce their own policies.
