Brian’s Reflection: Wednesday, June 27, 2012

If you do not accuse each other,
God will not accuse you.
If you have no accuser you will enter heaven.
What many people call sin is not sin;
I do many things to break down superstition,
and I will break it down.

Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism. He and his brother
were killed by a mob in Carthage IL on this date, 1844

Since the Mormons spend millions to defeat the right of Gayfolk to be married (civilly, Prop 8, … religious groups are free to do what they want to do in their own religious communities) … then is this not “accusing” their fellow human beings falsely, and will not God them accuse them??

Roman Catholics (they spent millions too) and so-called “Christian “evangelicals:  Ditto.

“Heaven” will, I guess be populated by all those lovely folk whom Jesus said would “enter first”… to the surprise of many who consider themselves righteous and deserving.

The Mormons are not alone among religionists is calling sin what is not sin … though if they followed Joseph’s thought, they would be avoiding the self-righteousness of pointing fingers at those they consider sinners. Hopefully, they will (along with all the other religionists) begin to listen to their founders … and break down superstition … i.e., “bearing false witness against their neighbours”.

“Heaven” is going to be filled with Gayfolk. I hope the rest are ready!

Nice spin. I frequently hope this is all true!
