(Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not in favor of ever affirming sexuality between two people of the same gender as normal behavior.)
I can see the “gay” people’s point, though. They were defeated by a fake-fronted “religion” who probably used dishonest methods to do their maneuvering of public opinion. Was the Mormon push the only reason the Prop was defeated? No.
I’m not too crazy about Mormonism as a right-wing conscience for society. They preach the preach, but don’t follow the preach. In fact, Mormonism has itself convinced that wrong is right, and that, in turn, trickles into their preach. Mormonism is a way-ward “religion,” and a danger to the people who get sucked up into it.
Here’s a very good example of fake-frontedness.
Big mover and shaker in Mormon church…“all pure and holy and righteous, a pillar of the Mormon church”… wants to be president. This man is not above anything to get what he wants. His bid for the White House fails, thank God. So he continues on with his daily life doing harm to society all in the disguise of being saintly and religious. His funneling of China money into this country through his giant leverage firm has now reached a new, ultimate low. He used China money to invest and create an analysis company named MedeFinance located in California.
Guess what this company does? When a sick person walks into one of this Mormon giant’s medical facilities (a facility associated with one of the largest health care conglomerates in the world), the med clinic runs a complete financial scan on the ill person. They do this before they even run a scan on the person’s health. MedeFinance pops back and tells the clinic everything about the sick person…their credit card limits, their balances in their 401Ks, their mortgage debt, their medical savings deposits etc.
Before the doctor even treats the sick person, the doctor knows how much the sick person can afford…and thus charges accordingly. So, if the normal price for a lab test is say $300, and the med facility knows that the poor sick person has a credit card (which he is trying to pay off), they tell them that they can charge the cost. The lab test price, then, can be the same amount as the credit limits allow.
The sick person then charges the cost of his medical expense because he has no other cash on hand…forget the insurance…it is a high deductible which hasn’t been met yet.
Then, this sick person, say, has to declare bankruptcy because the med expense was too expensive, and the credit card company just upped the interest rates to 20% or so, and thus drove him into the ground. The new bankruptcy laws just pasts don’t look kindly on “consumer credit,” which is what credit card balances are called.
The courts don’t SEE medical expense, which they would normally let the poor sick person for go. The courts SEE consumer credit and it wouldn’t matter if the person was living in a homeless shelter…the courts would reschedule that consumer credit until it was completely paid off.
The MedeFinance also sees 401Ks and gets the person to take a loan out on the 401K to pay the overly expensive lab tests. The person then discontinues with the working situation. That loan on that 401K is then called—not a loan—but a lump sum distribution! If a person doesn’t roll it over…he has to pay penalties…some as much as 30% on his federal tax return!
Didn’t we just have this reading where it says…if you do to the least of society, you do to Jesus, Himself?
How can the Mormon church “worship” this saint in their midst?
How can they accept his financial contributions which have been made by such despicable means?
The gays have a point with that “church.”
