My husband, who would rather stand on his head whistling Dixie than tell a lie let me in on some very good insight to his dealings with the Mormon church when he was married to one for 8 years. He was NOT nor ever became a Mormon .
The women are taught how to care for the husband. Be understanding. If the husband is unreasonable, how to deal with that issue. They are taught to know what the husband's desires are and should he be inclined to cheat, expect it and know how to be reassuring and understanding. They do believe to cater to the husband in every respect.
The Mormons are taught to store one years canned goods up. This is contrary to the teachings of Christ.
The wife is to be submissive at ALL times.
The Pearl of Great Price and the Book of Mormon trumps any Christian or any other Bible.
The women are subservient to the husband.
The case of infidelity is "This is how a man is" and it is taught by the elders who control everything.
Every single denomination or faith is wrong and is an abomination unto God by the Church of Ladder Day Saints, so lying and even killing has been justified for the LDS.
There is absolutely no equal rights in the marriage even if the husband is not a mormon. The LDS is to convert the husband and everyone else to their theology. It is an absolute mission on the church to do this.
Demigods....There are many Gods and the Mormon faith will trump a presidential decision at all levels especially if you were a bishop.
My husband told me that they tried to convert him to Mormonism and even told him he was a Mormon whether he knew it or not but he said, " I am not and I do know it".
They won't talk down other religions openly but clearly have an agenda to convert the world . They are taught the dominant religions such as baptists, catholics, penticostals,the jewish faith, methodists and will quote your faith with great ease to you to deceive. They travel in two's and wear white shirts and ties. They will use you own bible against you.
To qualify to be a Demigod..you excel in business, money, pay tithes and work with the church in their network. They hook up Mormon families to find employment. They have trucking and all kinds of business entites. The church control those businesses. Trick is ..They only help Mormons or at least one member such as my husband's situation and if active as his wife was and no one else. Conversion is very important in the help you get.
Joseph Smith was run out of every town until he ended up in Salt Lake City. He was given by God a manifesto many wives if they want by a mythical angel Morani and said it couldn't be reversed. The US government said they can't do that..so he had to have another revelation from God.that say .Don't do that..Of course he was caught in poligimy and was imprisoned after going against his own manifesto.....
jump below the squiggly
Now to the fun part. Why in the world would a rational man want to leave such a position as my husband was in you might ask? Well there are many reasons. First of all this was his third wife. He could cheat, drink, lie, and all would be forgiven.
My husband could not buy into Lucifer and Christ being brothers and their faiths were as opposite as she and I are. He was not an overbearing person and believed in equal rights.
Keep in mind, before marrying her, he was raised with women having active roles such as being preachers in the church. He also believed that no woman should be dominated. I guess bottom line he was not the average rational man and was looking for another war and found one when he married me.. (LOL) I am opionated, argumentative at times, challenge many things, and won't bow to any man. I am NOT understanding about infidelity and so far he has remained faithful in our 22 year marriage. I am a feminist. I do not want to cater to anyone but I do respect and honor our vows and marriage.
He could not buy into that ...whole married to the 1st wife in heaven deal either. I mean the sealing part. If people are mormons and had been married before they have to go back to the first wife. My husband had many wives, me being the last, I assure you. He said his Mormon wife was a good woman and that is about all he says. She tried to live her faith and he said he just could not love her. He married her and he wanted to settle down but he found out he just got tired of running around on her and felt even though it was accepted in her faith, he could not continue to emotionally do that. He did not love her as a husband should love his wife and truly believes that the mormons or anyone who does this sort of thing as a lifestyle do not love or they couldn't be so morally premiscuous with their devotion .
I was not taught to be kind and understanding in overlooking zipper problems. I was taught to leave or STAND MY GROUND. ( Take that however you want). I was taught about the unwritten law.
In contrast to the situation in Texas, in Georgia the wife could kill her husband's paramour, but just as in Texas, the spouse was not permitted to kill the other spouse. Another difference between the Georgia and Texas justifiable homicide rules was that, in Georgia, the paramour [generally was not allowed to use lethal force to defend himself against the spouse's lethal attack]....
Incidentally, a 1975 Georgia appellate case that began the abrogation of the Georgia rule drew a three-judge opinion that began (in relevant part), "I violently dissent." "What were the rights of the common law wife [who caught her common law husband in adultery with another woman] -- to walk away, taking no action whatever to prevent the act of adultery, or its completion? That is directly at variance with the law of Georgia!" (Note that the dissent wasn't just arguing that the defendant should have had the benefit of the old rule, however wrong, but seemed to be defending the rule itself, and arguing that the rule justified killing of the spouse as well as of the spouse's paramour.)http://www.volokh.com/...
A pretty appalling state of affairs, and shocking that it persisted until 30 years ago
My husband believes with all of his heart that Mitt Romney who was a missionary and Bishop absolutely would run the country under Mormon guidlines. No doubt he says.
He said that after living with a Mormon for 8 years, he knew how the church trumped and dominated all aspects of business and politics and Romney is lying if he says different. These folks are absolute in advancing their theology worldwide.
The elders of the church will back him and advise him and dictate this country. They feel according to my husband this guy is their God of America and that is scary.
Brain injury or not, we sure don't want a self appointed God to hold the football.
