Mammon v. God

Kevin Barney's usual passive-aggressive approach to making sin seem acceptable has resulted in predictable comments.

The entire tenor of the comments in this thread can be summed up thusly: You can serve God and Mammon. An organization that supports the church's position, and one that actively fights against the church and its teachings - both are fine! You can serve two masters after all.

You make a good point although I am surprised you didn't try to correlate the FMH post titled "Elder Hafen is totally wrong" (or other totally faithful title)

Mister Correlation said...

Oh, that's because I actively block FMH from my consciousness.

Even MC has his standards, Morgan.

I hope someone in the Strengthening the Membersip Committee is taking down names and wards over on Barney's thread.

MC, how did you miss the following?

Holy God, we believe that thou hast separated us from our sisters; and we do not believe in the tradition of our sisters, which was handed down to them by the childishness of their mothers; but we believe that thou hast elected us to be thy holy children; and also thou hast made it known unto us that General Relief Society Meeting is vapid.

But thou art the same yesterday, today, and forever; and thou hast elected us that we shall be intellectuals, whilst all around us are elected to be cast by thy wrath down to traditionalism; for the which holiness, O God, we thank thee; and we also thank thee that thou hast elected us, that we may not be led away after the foolish traditions of our mothers, which doth bind them down to a belief of the divine counsel obtained from General Authorities, which doth lead their hearts to wander far from thee, our God.

Of course the two viewpoints can be reconciled. Just favor gay marriage, as long as the two husbands promise to work very closely with each other to overcome their gayness. Then they can get divorced, yay!
