The LDS Church’s “Big Step” yesterday was nothing more than a well crafted, sugar coated move to legalize bigotry and discrimination; you know, as long as you sprinkle enough Jesus on your hate. This is poison. This is bad, and the number of people jumping on the Kool-Aid train is not only startling, it’s mind mindbogglingly worse.
Beliefs are tricky. I believe that the LDS Church should pay taxes. I believe that my pals on the left that think something amazing happened yesterday, need to catch the shuttle out of Stepford, and settle into some serious rational, intellectual thinking; casting aside the feel good fiction they’re helping to manufacture.
From the Huffington Post:
The new Mormon position is like that candy with a razor blade inside that your mom warned you about on Halloween. While calling for LGBTQ people to be protected from those who hate them for non-religious reasons (and who are those people, anyway?), they have hidden their real agenda, which is to legalize such discrimination by anyone who claims their prejudice is backed by faith.
I believe that the Republican dumbing down of America was engineered for exactly this kind of thing – an ignorant population, blissfully cheering their own repression, ’cause the pretty talk sounds like nice words, even if they don’t know what the words mean anymore.
I believe that using the Oxford comma is what separates us from the animals.
