    Helping Mormons become Ex-Mormons


    Special Guest/Topic:  DAVE FODA
     


    Ethics is basically the Golden Rule, in practice. But morals? That's a different story. Morals are a way that a group of people govern themselves, and their treatment of other groups of people, but those "moral codes" have very little to do with ethics. Something can be "moral" without also being "ethical." And, something can be "ethical" without also being "moral." To wit, the Ten Commandments are a "moral code," but an argument can easily be made that they don't meet the burden of an "ethical code."

    My Initial Attempt to Preach the Gospel on a Public Sidewalk in Merika

    in Current Events

    A policeman interrupts my handing out The Revelations of Jesus Christ on 4th So. and extremely wide artery in SLC, Utah in 1983.  I then received the following letter from the Church attorney, Oscar W. McConkey, shortly after which I was thrown in jail.  So much for Merika, a country that never has obeyed the Constitution, inasmuch they waged war on the Mormons with Johnson's army, slew their Prophet and his brother, outlawed the capstone of their religion, etc, and now the establishment of said obviously communist nation, 'Merika, pay no attention to visions and revelations of the Lord while stubbornly perverting the right way of the Lord, and then they wonder why they are being judged so harshly as a prelude to being destroyed by God!  Amazing!


    Lying letter:


    Letter from Oscar W. McConkie, Lawyer for

    Carter Politicized IRS in 1979; Extortion to Effect Negro Priesthood Conferral

    in Politics

    An insider nicknamed " a producer named the Grouch"  informed me in 1985,  of his personal knowledge that Pres. Kimball had been threatened by US President Jimmy Carter during a visit in 1979 so that the tax exempt status would be therefore withdrawn from the LDS Church, and that he (Carter) had similarly extorted Bob Jones University a year previous in just such a manner concerning their policy against interracial dating on campus.  Thus both caved before the "born-again" onslaught of Jimmy Carter, especially against the Mormons, whom he also considered a "cult", etc.  Carter had come out to Salt Lake for a visit, specifically with this extortion in mind, in further fulfillment of the prophecy of Daniel the prophet: 


     25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
     26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end.


                (Dan  7:25-26)


    The wretched Carter then had the Secret Service knock upon my door for a revelation I had received concerning these things.

    Legalizing Polygyny: What Would It Take?

    in Religion

    Families that follow the Islamic religion, the Mormon religion, and other religious sects that permit men to marry more than one wife could argue that polygyny is a constitutional right guaranteed by the first amendment. But currently it is illegal. What would it take to legalize polygyny? Would families that practice polygyny be willing to file a Federal lawsuit to demand the rights of all wives to be legally recognized? How would women insure all wives in a polygynous family received their share of the social security benefits, pension money, and property left behind after the passing of the husband? How would women uphold each other's rights to be publicly respected as wives?

    Legalizing Polygyny: What Would It Take?

    in Women

    Families that follow the Islamic religion, the Mormon religion, and certain other religious sects that practice polygyny (a man marrying multiple wives) could conceivably make the case that they have a right to legally do so under the First Amendment guarantee of Freedom of Religion. But the historic battle between the Protestant and Mormon faiths in the early days of American history lead to the banning of this practice, as the Protestants sought dominance over the Mormons and the Mormons allowed polygyny and the Protestants did not. However, what has emerged today is a new set of imigrants and converts to Islam, a religion of which allows polygyny for the purpose of providing support for orphaned children and widowed women.  America has allowed same sex marriage. Religious communities have asked, when will America consider the rights of heterosexual women, who greatly outnumber available heterosexual men? Don't they have a right to a legal marriage, if all the consenting adults agree to an arrangement in which a married man may legally marry an additional wife?  Would an elected official be willing to put forth legislation to the effect? Would a federal lawsuit need to be filed? Are women who are tired of being single be willing to take the lead in this effort?
