As you all know by now, I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints aka The Mormons. We have taken a lot of criticism for the Proposition 8 Refereundum in California.
I just want to state that as a Mormon, I do NOT Hate Gay People or Lesbians and have found them to be very helpful and great co workers and associates. I may not agree with their Lifestyles and certain things they support. But to cause harm physically or mentally goes against what our Faith Teaches.
I also took part in the Anti-Mosque Rally in NYC during 9-11. During that event I saw a Young Gay Woman carrying a sign that read MUSLIMS HATE GAYS. I went over and complimented her on that and let her know I was LDS as well. She thanked me and was surprised that after the ruckus over Prop 8. to recieve a compliment from a Mormon. I told her the following which I'd like to share with you.
Mormons are opposed to Gay Marriage but love and pray for Gays.
Muslims hate Gay Marriage and Gays and kill them.
Mormon Missionaries are always on their best behaviour and leave when asked.
Muslims are offended when you ask them to leave and come back and kill you !
Mormons revere A Prophet Named Joseph Smith but do not place him above The Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, or the Holy Ghost/Spirit. Joseph Smith is depicted in many paintings, drawings, and forms of artwork including childrens colouring books.
Muslims place Mohammed the Prophet above all Deities and forbid his depiction under pain of death.
Joseph Smith advocated that the members of the LDS Church act under the law and treat their Gentile (Non Mormon) Neighbours/Friends/Co Workers/Visitors with friendship and respect.
Mohammed advocated that his followers follow Chapter 5 of the Quraan which calls for the expulsion, shunning, persecution, and death of all Non Muslims including Children.
Mormons are not allowed to force conversion on Gentiles and face Church discipline if they do.
Muslims have a history of forcing conversion on Non Muslims which resulted in massacre and bloodshed.
Mormons did practice polygamy but stopped after the 1880's. It is still practiced in the fringe groups and will result in Excommunication.
Muslims follow polygamy since the Mohammed advocated it including taking Underaged Child Brides.
Mormons always welcome Visitors and Strangers into their Churches.
Muslims control the entry of Non Muslims into their Mosques and Women are treated horribly if they try to enter.
The Book Of Mormon illustrates the coming to America of certain Israelites before the Fall of Jersualem and Christs visitation to the Americas.
The Quraan advocates mistreatment of Women, Non Muslims, and disturbing sexual practices towards females and children.
Salt Lake City and all other Cities with a Huge Mormon Populace are open to all.
Mecca and other Muslim cities are Muslim Only and Non Muslims are forbidden entry.
Mormons discourage the usage of Coffee, Tea, Tobacco and Narcotics and encourage their Brothers and Sisters to do the same through peaceful methods.
Muslims discourage eating of certain foods and liquor and will cause physical harm to those who break this law.
The Mormon faith HAS Made Mistakes towards the Treatment of African Americans and advocating certain beliefs and still works on correcting them.
The Islamic faith refuses to acknowledge its falsehoods and mistakes. They still call for the destruction of Israel and murder of Non Muslims
We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm
