    If someone doesn't want me to bring up the absurdity of the underwear, then someone else should stop expressing outrage that someone else is a "bigot' for bringing it up. Our friend palerobber hear seems to think it's out of bounds for saying anything 'bigoted' about Mormons, but doens't have any problem with the kind of overt violence and hatred that the mormons are inspiring with thier crusade over Prop 8.

    To equate silly comments about the mormon faith and all of it's rituals and dogma with a word that can connotes the kind of treatment that George Wallace is famous for is a bit of a stretch.

    When I think "Bigot" I don't see images of mormons hanging from trees because of their underwear. I do however see a religion who has voluntarily injected themselves in a debate over sexuality that presumes to judge people for their behavior while standing behind a curtain of absolution because it's out of bounds to ask them about their own behavior.

    No, I won't knock it off.

    George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"

    •  you're lying about my position on LDS and prop8 (0+ / 0-)

      they are - by and large - on the wrong side of the issue and their tactics have been dishonest.

      what they're doing is ugly and a disgrace and it will hurt not just gays but also the church's own standing in this country over the long term.
