    That's nice, and folks christian and non are welcome to agree or disagree with you on that point. Wasn't the question you asked or does it have anything to do with the post of yours I was responding to.

    There is, indeed, a blacklist, whether your LDS friends know about it or are honest about it or not. Yes, I could put up a sign, but I never have and have never needed to.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Thanks sangha, it was a clumsy sentence but I see it now. In that case, my comment still applies. The OT has an original source, one that anyone who claims to be studied on religion knows, and it isn't the Bible.

    I don't think so, considering one of them is a member of the Quorum of Seventy.

    Actually, like NT the OT is a collection of texts from various sources

    Haha, no, you misunderstood that. I put an 'and' in there as two examples of factual error in Christian mythology. The Christian teachings that Matthew/Mark/Luke/John wrote the Gospel is false. They were written by multiple, unknown Christian authors and revisers, hundreds of miles away from Judea and decades after Jesus' death. These authors did not know or witness any of the events that they wrote about. We know this through literary analysis of the writing styles, dictionary, language, narrative flow and political motivations contained within the scripts.

    Second, the other Christian teaching that a man named Moses or his story in Exodus is also false. There is no archaeology evidence of plagues or revolts, Egyptians didn't even have slaves (they had paid 'indentured servants') and even better, there is literally not a single mention of Israelites in all of Egyptian writings, except for one, which briefly mentions the Israelites in Canaan (the Merneptah inscription) which was more-so a list of Egypt's neighbors. There is no literal shred of archaeology evidence of any exodus anywhere in Egypt, or in Sinai, no evidence of Moses, King David or slavery. In fact, historians believe the stories copied from Zoroastrian and other Eastern religions. Simply put, Moses never existed.

    Didn't do anything remotely of the sort, but its cool... besides which, the countered, actually valid question: you think denying the truth to be the smarter move, do you?

    What if I get my prostate checked and it feels kinda good even though im not gay? Is that a sin? Im just wondering if me and the doctor are going to hell when I get old. You really, really think God took the time to descend from heaven, a grand cosmic journey simply to get someones attention and say, "Hey go tell everyone buttsex is wrong." Or do you think maybe its always just been an excuse to banish the abnormal? Seems pretty damn trivial if you ask me... Its just a penis and a butthole. No one is going to die or anything.

    If god made us in his image. And some of us people are gay. Then does a portion of god crave buttsex?
