Bain in the Neck -- Bain's history on Gawker

Hard to pull away no matter how stressful it is. Republican Party and its lying nominee make it difficult if not impossible to do that.


You be the judge. Here is the link and below. I am sure we will hear more:

Things Mormons Won't Tell You -- A Clarification


Some clarifications are in order concerning the email I sent last evening, “What Mormonism Won’t Tell You.”  It was sent late at night and I did not scrutinize every word.  As sometimes is the case syntax and even content suffer.  I offer a short caveat.
 
The content of Mormon tenets is SO utterly mind numbing and the possibility of Romney, the 10% tither-in-chief to the Mormon Church, winning the presidency is so real that the content of this faith he has worked hard to spread must be examined.  The email I copied and sent was, however, taken from a mainstream Christian site.  I, of course, do not subscribe to any organized religion's attempt to brainwash masses of people.
 
“The Things Mormons Won't Tell You” enumerated in my email are correct but it was stated by others as if alternative sects of Christianity are true.  I do not believe that either. One must scrutinize ALL belief most especially if a candidate who may win the presidency wants to spread that belief and entwine religion with the state, exactly what most of our Founders did NOT want.
 
Other sects of Christianity (and every other belief system) possess contradictory text as well but Mormon belief is so bizarre it strains beyond reason the boundaries of credulity.  The tenets of Mormonism because of Romney’s attempt to attain the presidency must see the light of day.  It further emphasizes one party's attempt to offer up this Mormon man Romney for the presidency of ALL of us. Therefore, his desire to spread his belief system needs further examination. It is not only that he is a Mormon it is that he truly believes these inanities and spent two years of his life in France avoiding service in Vietnam to promulgate them!
 
Romney continues to tithe 10% of his salary (a hefty sum) to his church.  Further, his church is STILL considered a "non profit" organization getting tax exempt status while clearly promoting Republican candidates and Republican extremist ideology which was heavily involved in upholding California’s Prop. 8 striking down gay marriage.  Romney is a candidate who wants to mix religion with state and has said so.  
 
I leave it to YOU to decide who the better candidate is – our president who separates church and state or this phony liar Romney who wears the magic underwear himself.  No wonder he lies with such ease? Who could hurt him while wearing his Superman suit? Where is the kryptonite when one needs it?  The kryptonite should be your own questioning mind to defeat this man vying for the presidency, the most powerful office in the land, and thereby render him powerless!
 

Things Mormons Won't Tell You

Yes, I had to break my promise to refrain from writing opinions and yet here is another.

NBC Brian Williams as usual gave us a sanitized version of Mormonism, the same church that with their corrupt money requiring 10% of their members to tithe (a good gig if one can get it) served to pass prop 8 or a denial of gay marriage in CA and are heavily invested in much political especially the candidacy of Mitt Romney liar and flip flopper in chief and all things Republican no matter how medacious.

Are there gays in Mormonism? MOST DEFINITELY YES! Yes, of course, there are good things too but measuring against the insane belief system there is to me no contest. Beyond that the despicable nerve of this religion to have the hutzpah to baptize Jewish Holocaust dead turned my blood to 212 Fahrenheit. Yes, it boiled. GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY PEOPLE!! harummph

Moreover, it is a sexist religion and that's putting it mildly. How anyone on planet earth can adhere to
crazy belief systems and build a multi million dollar church around it is beyond me. Yes, other religions have their insanity and I do not excuse it but this one TRULY takes the cake.

Here is the following FACTS Mormons won't tell you and there are many more if you research it. It's a very secretive religion and I'm sure once one is in it one can see why!

Taken from here or http://www.mmoutreach.org/mormon/articles/facts_mormon_wont_tell.htm and enumerated below:

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they believe your Church is wrong, your Christian creeds are abomination to God, and you pastor or Priest is a hireling of Satan.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that there is salvation only in their church and all others are wrong.
MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that those who have been through their temples are wearing sacret underwear to protect themselves from "evil". This "evil" includes non-Mormon religions like yours.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU about their secret temple rites at all. If they did, you would spot them as non-Christians immediately.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they think "familiar spirits" are good, and that their Book of Mormon has a "familiar spirit". Leviticus 19;31 says familiar spirits defile one, and are to be avoided at all costs.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that women receive salvation only through their Mormon husbands, and must remain pregnant for all eternity.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they intend to be gods themselves some day, and are helping to earn their exaltation to godhood by talking to you.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they intend to have many wives in heaven, carrying on multiple sex relations throughout eternity, until they have enough children to populate their own earth, so they can be "Heavenly Father" over their own planet!

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that you were once a spirit-child of their heavenly father, and one of his numerous wives before you were born on earth.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the Virgin Mary really wasn't a virgin at all but had sex relations with their heavenly father to produce the Mormon version of Jesus Christ

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their leaders taught that Jesus had at least three wives and children while he was on this earth.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the "heavenly father" they ask you to pray to with them, is really an exalted man that lives on a planet near the star base Kolob, and is not the Heavenly Father of the Bible at all. (I'm not kidding!)

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that Jesus was really Lucifer's brother in the spirit world, and it was only due to a "heavenly council" vote that Jesus became our redeemer instead of Satan!!

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that there are over one hundred divisions in Mormonism. They conveniently "forget" this while criticizing the many denominations within the body of Christ

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that all their so- called scriptures such as the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Doctrine and Covenants, and even their official "Mormon Doctrine" statements contradict each other on MAJOR doctrinal points. The King James Bible is likewise contradicted.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the reason the Book of Mormon has no maps is because there is not one scrap of archaeological evidence to support it!

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that the state of Utah, which is predominately Mormon, has a higher than the national average of wife-beating, child abuse, and teenage suicide.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their prophet Joseph Smith was heavily involved in the occult when he founded Mormonism.
MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that that they encourage visitations from dead relatives from the "spirit world", a practice forbidden in the Bible. (Deuteronomy 18:10- 12.)

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that there are many accounts of Joseph Smith's first vision besides he one they present to you, and all are different.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their secret temple oaths are based on the Scottish Rite Masons.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that for years they considered the Negro race inferior, and even one drop of Negro blood prevented a person from entering their temple.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they expect Christ to return to their temple in Missouri, but they haven't built the temple He's supposed to return to, because they don't own the property. (It is owned by the "Temple Lot Mormons" who have plans o of their own, and won't let the Salt Lake City group buy it).

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they consider the Bible to be untrustworthy and full of errors.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that Jesus' death on the cross only partially saves the believer.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that that according to Anton Lavey's Satanic Bible, the demon god of the living dead is called "Mormo". Is it just a coincidence that the Mormons are so concerned with the dead?

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that on their Salt Lake City Temple they prominently display an upside-down star which is a Satanic symbol known as the Goat's head.. Why?

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that they believe the Archangel Michael came down to earth with several of his celestial wives, and became Adam in the garden of Eden.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that that they believe the angel Gabriel came down to earth and became Noah in the days of the flood.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their Prophet Joseph Smith prophesied falsely many times. For example, he foretold the second coming of Christ for 1891. The Bible teaches that one false prophecy puts a prophet under death sentence. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that their Prophet Joseph Smith did not die as a martyr as they claim, but was killed during a gun battle in which he himself killed two men and wounded a third.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU about the Mountain Meadows Massacre in which they brutally murdered an innocent wagon train of settlers, of over one hundred men, women, and most of the children, traveling through Utah.

MORMONS WON'T TELL YOU that Joseph Smith taught that there were inhabitants on the moon, and Brigham Young taught there were inhabitants on the sun as well!

WHY WON'T MORMONS TELL YOU THESE THINGS?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Mormons, are well aware that if these facts were known to the convert prior to baptism, they would have very few converts! The Missionaries are well trained to keep most of these facts from their potential converts.

Tragically, many Mormons may not even be fully aware of the doctrines and history of their own church. Every statement on this tract is true. Mormons are encouraged to check out their own publications for documentation of the above. After all, if the Mormon Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) has the truth, it can stand any amount of investigation.

Please do not be afraid to investigate. We are not Ex-Mormons, but Christians defending the Christian Church and its beliefs.

Excellent documentation etc. can be found in the Mormon Mini
stry web sites from our link page.
