    Glenn's "chat" today was about "god" as being the foundation of "morality" in the USA.
    Might he be the "2nd Coming?"    :-)
    ok.ok it's Glenn..jeez

        I did not know this!  No wonder though, I couldn't stand to listen to him long enough to find out his religious beliefs.  Boy, does that explain a lot of things.  Hoo-haw!

        RE: Beck.

        It always amazes me that such hate mongers have so much "faith." And yet, if they read what their scriptures say, hate has nothing to do with the "gospel" they preach. So they violate the basic tenet of their own beliefs. And regardless of how you slice and dice his spin, there is a lot of division an devisiveness. Apparently Christian belief is based on unity, not division. So Beck is effectively and properly defined as a hypocrite.

      Of course not! He's religious so what's wrong with that? He also believes that their is a culture on the left that wants to replace God with Government and wipe any reference of the creator from our history.

      That's a question worthy of debate because we have seen groups try to remove God from the pledge, and from our money. In addition there's an argument to be made that the courts rulings on school prayer exceed the intent of the religious freedom guarantee of our constitution.

        What creator is that? History? lol Don't they have dictionaries where you come from? God and Government should be separated - that is what the history books say. Or they do until Texas gets a hold of them. lol Tee hee - you Konservative Kristians are soo funny. Scary, but - mostly funny.

        At least you are honest about your religion being more about politics than anything else. Well done for being honest.

          The "creator" can be many things to many people. I'm sure even you have a theory for how the universe came to be.

          The fact is America was founded by people who wished to worship as they saw fit and christian principles were a part of that process. Now I agree government and religion should be separate but that's no reason to wash from history our christian heritage or to deny it. It's also no reason to prevent someone from praying in school.

            Now - you see - you are contradicting yourself there. Worship as they saw fit does not include ramming a religion down your throat. Which includes mandatory prayer. You can't have it both ways.

            Yes - America was founded on those two wonderful Christian principles: slavery and stealing land from the natives, but still.......

              America wasn't founded on slavery. Perhaps you should read the constitution.

              You want to talk about slavery today, let's talk about how it exists in Africa, and actually all over the world.

              And MANDATORY prayer was NEVER required EVER in this country nor do I advocate it.

              Oh and land was never stolen from the natives. They were compensated for their land, and are still being compensated today!

          I don't want a government at all. I want to be able to govern myself responsibly, and the rest of humanity do the same. But that's not going to happen, is it. I don't care what the premise of the government is as long as it's grounded on principles of personal well-being, which would obviously include human rights. At this point, however, government is convoluted, messed up, and catering to whomever has the loudest voice with the biggest money pot.

          That isn't much different than any religion.

    Great!  Back to Mormons on the dart board...  Anyhow, in answer to your question, no.

    Glen is an American citizen who is exercising his right to free speech.  This is the same right that allows us to post on these forums.  It is a right that I have been trying to teach and impress upon the people in these forums for months.

    Whether or not he is a Mormon is entirely beside the point, and is a futile attempt to smear yet another faith based organization.  That's all that needs to be said on that.

    A Savior!  Nope.  Anyone who feels the downward slide of this nation and acts upon that feeling in a way to inform the people, is doing what they are supposed to do in the discharge of their freedoms and liberties to persuade and warn the people.  This can often be misconstrued as someone trying to "save" the people.  Only the people can save themselves through their actions.  It's up to the rest of us who have knowledge and opinions to persuade others to see a different point of view.  Through this they make their own informed judgment as to what to believe.

      How tall are you anyway? Pretty short I suspect. Not that there is anything wrong with that. I like my women short. My wife is Japanese and very short. I think it is cute.

      Glen Beck a Mormon huh? No wonder he comes across as so condescending. That explains a lot. Mormons are probably the most hubris-filled of all the religionists. They haven't really done anything except build an office block as far as I can tell. No wonder all the real religions hate them. sad

    Sarcasm is pointless. It contributes nothing. Beck, regardless of his religious beliefs, is a strong counterpoint to a Presidential administration that is out of control. And for all the inane rubbish posted about Beck, his ratings are sky-high indicating that his program is watched by millions. That cannot be discounted. Those same millions will vote this November. Whoever is controlling Obama -- and Obama is merely a mouthpiece for something much bigger -- is due for a serious downfall.

      I sometimes agree with him, sometimes not. He's a helluv'n entertainer and he's bright.
      I respect his point of view and his right to express it.
      But when he reduces his show, almost, to the level of evangelistic, religious "preaching," in reference to American "morality," he deserves the sarcasm.

      Atheists tend to be contentious. Apparently that's not a Christian attribute, so there's not alarm for them that it's bad, per se. But from what I've seen, there is as much contention by many (not all) Christian believers in the religion forums. So while religious meetings shouldn't be interrupted  by contentions from anyone, the forums are a little different matter, I believe.

          Hey Sneaks, how's it going?  Hey, let's just get it all out in the open.  How about we all just throw the chips in the jar and express what we know of Mormons.  It seems that most everyone here knows exactly what we are - let's here it!

          I'll start:
          Mormons have tails (I've been asked this many times and it would make sitting on the toilet rather difficult)
          Mormons have many wives (inconceivable since one is enough smile )
          Mormons are not Christian (hmmm, The Church of Jesus Christ...)
          Mormons don't believe in the Bible (it's only scripture we always carry around)
          Mormons wear funny underwear (well, Haines are a bit itchy)
          Mormons baptize others against their will (freedom of choice and liberty is only one of the main doctrines we teach)
          Mormons are a cult (no more than atheists are or anyone else for that matter)
          Mormons have horns (so that's why I can't seem to wear a hat)
          Mormons relish in constant harems (right, activity like that would give me a cardiac arrest)
          Mormons are morons (no more than has been demonstrated here on this thread by assaulting non-Mormons)
          Mormons are non-charitable (yeah, right, it's not even worth listing all the service done in the past, present and yet to come)
          Mormons are condescending (try, just once, looking in the mirror)
          Mormons take people's money (we definitely teach the scriptural laws of tithing and other offerings, but it's never a forced issue, again it's the basic doctrine of free agency)
          Mormons don't believe in technology (we are on the forefront of technology, I've always loved that one)

          Mormon this and Mormon that.  I've heard it all a thousand times and it proves only one thing.  Knowledge is lacking in those who accuse and assume.  None of the above accusations are true although there are a trillion more just as sick.  Is there nothing better to do with your time than to continue the rot?  If self righteousness is what many familiar faces wish to proclaim of themselves in cyberspace than go and prove yourself to them who are out there who need help, because you are doing no great wonder in here by tearing down other faiths.  You may continue your little laughing faces as it is just another demonstration of assumed knowledge and belittles only yourself. 

          The thread was about Glen Beck and also about Mormonism.  Pure and simple.  He is not our spokesman regardless of the dung flung about in previous posts.  He is an American exercising his liberty to express himself.  Many Latter-day Saints do not agree with all of what he says.  It's called freedom, people, not religion.  If you want to bash the religion then go and revive the thread "Who are the Mormons" or whatever the title was.  The colors portrayed in many posts here need not be true colors.  It need not exhibit blackness in the heart and soul.  Change that color by trying not to be so hateful.  It's wrong and you know it.  There have been few things that I have not agreed with about Glen Beck, but he is not a religious leader and not a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

          goldenpath,
          I hear the pain coming through of having been belittled for your beliefs. I don't wish to add more. If it is too painful to read someone contesting your statements, read no further. There are many things I take issue with.

          I'd like to go through them individually as rationally as is possible. smile

          Mormons have tails (I've been asked this many times and it would make sitting on the toilet rather difficult)
               This is ignorance speaking about Mormons. It reflects the speaker more than the Mormons it purports to denegrate.

          Mormons have many wives (inconceivable since one is enough  )
                 While not all Mormans follow older traditions, it was true that polygamy was an accepted institution. A small percentage still follow this though it is against the gov't laws and current Mormon dogma. Therefore, not inconceivable, though your humor is well stated.

          Mormons are not Christian (hmmm, The Church of Jesus Christ...)
                  Just because one claims to be Christian does not make it so. The incident with Jim Jones, Waco and others attribute to false self proclaimed Messiahs. Jesus himself said, "Many will come to me saying, 'I did all these things in your name.' and Jesus responds that he will say, "Depart from me. I never knew you."  The truth is, no one can tell someone else they are or are not a Christian. The judge is Christ and I am not applying for the position. Therefore I cannot judge whom Christ will call his own. It is the individual's responsibility before God to confess their sins and honor Jesus as Lord of her/his life.
                However, looking at the  Mormon church, I find there are problems with the prophecies of Joseph Smith 'adding' to the Christian Bible. Revelation 22:18 pronounces against adding any more prophecies to the Bible. I believe this issue is true in many instances. If one wants to claim to be playing the game, e.g. basketball one can't change the rules of the game to suit oneself e.g.one team declares the game rules are like baseball, while everyone else adheres to the one rulebook e.g. basketball (or in the case of Christianity, the majority of followers say the Bible is the only book--no Book of Mormon added) and still call it the same game, e.g. basketball (or Christianity). If one changes the rules, which Mr. Smith did, it alters the belief, hence it cannot be called by the same name.

          Mormons don't believe in the Bible (it's only scripture we always carry around)
               It is not the only scripture. As a military chaplain I was required to provide the Book of Mormon so my Momon service members could have their complete scripture.

          Mormons wear funny underwear (well, Haines are a bit itchy)
                Perhaps attributing to some of the more secret rituals not referencing all Mormons. There are many groups, though, in cultures around the world that have members wear different attire when performing rituals. Half the colleges have fraternities and sororities require that. Hardly a denegration or a statement for everyday wear.

          Mormons baptize others against their will (freedom of choice and liberty is only one of the main doctrines we teach) There have been some recorderd instances of this behavior. Again, it does not apply to all Mormons. A Mormon friend of mine was involved in an incident as such.

          Mormons are a cult (no more than atheists are or anyone else for that matter)
               The definition of cult precludes atheists from being called a cult.
                A cult is a religion or sect considered to be false, unorthodox, or extremist, with members often living outside of conventional society under the direction of a charismatic leader.
                  Atheists cannot be called a cult since they profess no religion, they are not organized and follow no specific leader, even if their views are extreme and unorthodox.
                  Mormons are a religion. Many Christians in many denominations consider Mormon dogmas false, but that is not necessary to be categorized as a cult. Mormons follow unorthodox teachings since Joseph Smith's teachings are not the orthodox church. The fact that he added 'latter day saints' to the name points to his unorthodoxy. He was separating himself from the orthodox Christians. Since Mormonism began with Joseph Smith's teachings, it seems inconsistent to argue for his orthodoxy.

          Mormons have horns (so that's why I can't seem to wear a hat)
              I have never heard this. Sad commentary on what people's perceptions are, or maybe they thought they wore Viking helmuts with horns. Who knows?
          Mormons relish in constant harems (right, activity like that would give me a cardiac arrest)  Some Mormon communities have made headlines for their polygamous behaviour. Again, it is not all Mormons.

          Mormons are morons (no more than has been demonstrated here on this thread by assaulting non-Mormons)
                   I would have to say that calling any human-being a moron is inappropriate.

          Mormons are non-charitable (yeah, right, it's not even worth listing all the service done in the past, present and yet to come) 
                    The generosity of the Mormon church in many areas of life has been established. Anything else is ignorance speaking.


          Mormons are condescending (try, just once, looking in the mirror)
                I agree that the passion associated with religion does lend itself to condescension and its practice is unfortunately present on all sides of the fence.
                 All faiths have arrogant people and humble people.
                 When one becomes the focus of negative attention for hateful condescending ways, the rest are painted with his arrogance.
                   For Christians, it is rampant even though it is contrary to the humility that Christ demonstrated and asked us to demonstrate.
                   Christ pointed to hubris pride as the worst sort of sins. (I did note earlier that Christ might say he never knew some of these folk)
                    Pride sent Lucifer from heaven. Pride and arrogance were evident in the words spoken by the thief on the cross cruicified with Jesus. On the other hand the humble thief, Jesus honored with, "Today, you'll be with me in Paradise."

          Mormons take people's money (we definitely teach the scriptural laws of tithing and other offerings, but it's never a forced issue, again it's the basic doctrine of free agency)
                  The Lord loves a cheerful giver. Sourgrapes when people belittle the church for asking for money to operate. 10 % of our income is to be tithed. God said so. We are to give. The church receives, not takes.
                   Granted, the Mormons are enthusiastic in their church membership requirements about giving to the church.

          Mormons don't believe in technology (we are on the forefront of technology, I've always loved that one)
                  Ignorance speaking.

          I don't imagine you'll agree with me on all my points, but we can agree to disagree. I trust that I was not condescending, pejorative or derogatory. It was my intent to be respectful.

          Sincerely,
          Lyn

            My gosh, between you and Goldenpath, it's like watching and listening to Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh at the same time. So many civil bullets between the two of you, hiding behind all that agreement of conservative hate.

            Not impressive.

            Mormons are just human beings. Human beings act pretty consistently just like other human beings. Divisiveness about religion is redundant in these pathetic displays of one-upmanship. There are as many exMormons in prison in Utah as there are Christians and atheists. You can not categorize a section of society and label them as any more dangerous because of a "Christian" belief in God, than any other section. It's pathetically stupid.

            Agree to disagree....my arse. Still all about one-upmanship between the two of you. Neither of you intend to listen to the other. Ever.

            Get over it.

              Well, I am learning a lot about passive aggressive attacks. I honestly thought my Mum was a Master until I met Goldenpath here. Turns out she is an amateur in comparison.

              I am seeing it must be part of the Mormon training. I see it as a very dishonest way of making an attack, myself, but - that tends to be what religion brings out in people..

              These guys - they must get an awful lot of unprovoked assaults. Which is what they want I guess. The poor downtrodden believer who just wants to love Jesus in peace. sad So sad......

                I do believe they enjoy being victims of all things religious. They *must* suffer as Christ supposedly did, or they are not accepted by him. Thus the holy victim is born. How insulting of us to impede the path of them dragging their crosses in front of us.

                If God did send his Son to die for us, he didn't intend for the whole human race to die the same way. The point is that he had only ONE begotten Son. Makes it all the more deplorable that so many imposters pretend to be Him also and then claim discipleship which really means "victimhood."

                Sick. Mentally sick.

    1. Daniel Carter profile image90
      Daniel Carterposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Christianity didn't invent morals. Morals are innate in each of us. It's up to us to access them, develop them and nuture them. It's also a choice to disregard, ignore, and not believe in them.

      Another thing you may want to keep in mind is that the Founding Fathers of the US in most cases were NOT Christians. They were Deists. Thomas Jefferson toted around his version of the Bible which was HIS interpretation. Utter and complete heresy, to conservative Christians these days. So are you absolutely certain our US morals are based on Christian beliefs?

      If you want to talk BS, I believe your accusations are fitting.

          Haggling over words is pointless. But let me just show where I got the impression from you....

          "hate to brake it to you all. But Christianity and God is the foundation our morals..."

          I don't know how I misconstrued your words so far out, but I still find them to read the same to me.

          I didn't even slightly hint or imply atheists among the Founding Fathers. I said they were Deists, and Deists are not necessarily Christians, as I pointed out.

          Sorry I read you wrong, but I really don't know what else to read from it. But you don't have to explain any further, either.

        52 of the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence were orthodox, deeply committed Christians. The other three all believed in the Bible as the divine truth, the God of scripture, and His personal intervention.
        Ofcourse none of them (or anyone else) believe exactly what I believe, otherwise there would be no diversity in the world.

          "Some of the 1787 delegates had no affiliation. The others were Protestants  except for three Roman Catholics: C. Carroll, D. Carroll, and Fitzsimons. Among the Protestant delegates to the Constitutional Convention, 28 were Church of England (Episcopalian, after the Revolutionary War was won), eight were Presbyterians, seven were Congregationalists, two were Lutherans, two were Dutch Reformed, and two were Methodists, the total number being 49. Some of the more prominent Founding Fathers were anti-clerical or vocal about their opposition to organized religion, such as Thomas Jefferson  (who created the "Jefferson Bible"), and Benjamin Franklin"  ~~ wiki
