    Lets not forget it was made very clear to them that this said LDS Court Yard, is private property, and they should leave, and they refused.

    Think if the gay community had a private court yard in SF, and Mormon Missionaries were there giving out the Book of Mormon, a Book that talks about Christs walk on the American Continent, after he was murded at Easter.

    Do you think the gays in this court yard would treat these Mormons with any better care?

    (Smacks palm against forehead).
    The government probably threatened to take away their tax exempt status because they illegally donated time, money, propaganda literature, etc. to the California Proposition 8 campaign, which took away our right to marry.

    The same thing happened some years ago, when they were forced to admit black people into their church. Seriously.

    So why isn't the government forcing the same consequence to other denominations that are guilty of the same thing (especially but not solely Prop icon_cool.gif?

    In fact they let black people into the church, they just did not let the black fella to hold the priesthood, and they were not forced to do so.

    No diffrent to the catholics not letting women hold the priesthood, or homosexuals anymore.

    because its a way to appear sympathetic to homosexuals when they would never condone homosexual behaviour amongst their membership.

    PR move.

    In fact there are a lot of Mormons here at RJ, both active, and ex. If you are open about your sexuality, you just have to live a life of celibacy. There is a gay Mormon here in melbourne who has even been tot he Temple.

    Oh, for sure. But if you act on your "urges", dis-fellowship then excommunication, if you conform to the rigid rules your fine, if you live your life of your own accord, buh-bye.

    Yes true.

    I recall as a youth talking to my Bishope about having wet dreams, and I made the mistake of informing him I had the ability to stop them, as I did, because I knew I was having them. Thats were I got into trouble, because I had the ability to stop it, and I didn't.

    The last time I talked to a Bishope about masturbation, and he was a guy I grew up with, and when he asked me did I have any trouble wit it, my reply was no not at all, it all works really well. he just laughed in frustration I think.
