Why Divorce is at 50%+

I shit you not... I found a Google Ad on my site yesterday for a group in favor of Proposition 102 - the latest attempt to write hate and religious bigotry into the Arizona Constitution. Now, I'm assuming these folks are stupid anyway since it would appear to be a major waste of money to advertise on the blog of a gay man who has been in a monogamous and loving relationship for over 10 years (soon to be 11 years). But, with the rich Mormons behind them and the not so rich Roman Catholics (the Tucson Diocese is recovering from bankruptcy due to pedophilia) I guess they have money to waste.

Anyway, I figured I'd see what the site was so I checked it out.

It's a little $50 flash template you can buy online with this stupid little "harp" music. But, the real kicker is their "tag line"

"What's Love Got To Do With It?"

Yes, according to these morons love and marriage are in no way, shape, or form related. And they wonder why the divorce rate among straight people is over 50%? I would venture it's because they have things a little messed up. Marriage would seem to be all about love.

Then again, this measure is primarily being driven by the Mormons (or as they like to call themselves, Latter Day Saints). The Mormons certainly know nothing about love when it comes to marriage. Their religion is based on polygamy and preferably polygamy involving adult men and teenage (or younger) women. They can say they have "changed" all they want, but there are too many raids on Mormon compounds that find teenage girls married to adult men with dozens of children for me to believe that.

The entire idea of their church is built on the sex drive of an old goat of a man. Let's face it, the polygamy idea got started because Joseph Smith saw a pre-teen kid he wanted to schtup and suddenly got a "message" from God telling him it'd be OK not only to have sex with her but to take her as one of his "wives."

So, the Mormons were beaten up and driven from almost every state in the Union and ended up in the middle of nowhere in Utah. They tried for a big image makeover in the past 75 years or so to stay on the right side of the law (at least publicly) and have now gained a measure of credibility.

To shore up their bona fides as a "religion" they are now going after GLBT people and our civil rights. At the same time, their sub groups are into pedophilia and polygamy.

One word of advice to the Mormons out there:

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" - Matthew 7:3

Oh, right, that's the real Bible, they probably have never read that part.

DISCLAIMER: This is probably one of the nastiest posts I've written in a long time, but I'm very much astounded at how gullible the American public has been about the Mormon church and it's history and has allowed them to in any way, become arbiters of morality and decency in the public conversation.

Here are some resources to learn the truth behind this cult who has been allowed by our politicians to attempt to set policy:

Just search Google for "Joseph Smith and Pedophilia" and you'll find hundreds of discussions of his multiple adulterous "marriages" with teenage girls as well as hundreds of Mormons explaining away his shocking and immoral behavior with children and flaunting of the law of the land in any number of ways.

Honestly, I do know people who are ostensibly members of this cult and I have a very hard time even speaking to them because of their attempts to inject their sick religion into my life through legislation and never ever coming to terms with their own cult's history and origins.

I say if we pass a Constitutional Amendement outlawing equal civil rights for GLBT people we need to pass one to outlaw the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints" on the grounds it promotes adultery and pedophilia. Likewise, someone needs to have the Pope arrested, extradited and flown back here to face trial on charges of conspiracy to conceal sex acts with children. What's fair is fair.
