Mormon Missionaries Must Use Rhetoric to Defeat Evangelical Attacks on Our Church

Mormon missionaries who’ve spent time serving in the United States, frequently have to suffer the indignity of trying to teach Evangelicals and Protestants.  One of the things our glorious missionaries have to suffer is when the missionaries start to teach about Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, the Evangelicals and the Protestants always fire off 2 things.  They always quote Matthew 7:15 where Jesus says beware of false prophets.

The second annoying thing that Mormon missionaries have to suffer is when some Evangelicuck quotes the Book of Revelation “If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life,” in reference to the Book of Mormon.

Ineffective responses to Matthew 7 and Revelations 22

As Mormon missionaries we learn that the way we should respond to Matthew 7:15 is to just go ahead and quote the next verse which says, “Ye shall know them by their fruits.”  (Matthew 7:16).  Of course when the Mormon missionaries quote the next verse the Evangelicuck or the Protestant just goes ahead and repeats the Bible verse he was stating.  After going through this dance a few times the Mormon missionaries learn not to get into discussions with Protestants and Evangelicucks because it’s always the same.

The Mormon missionaries have same problem with Revelation 22:18-19.  What the missionaries do is talk about how the same warning is at the end of the Book of Deuteronomy where Moses gives a similar warning.  The idea is to use Deuteronomy to show that the warning only applies to the Book of Revelation itself unless the Evangelicuck wants to throw out all of the Bible except for the 5 Books of Moses, which would then put them in violation of Revelation 22:19.  The idea is to put the Evangelicuck into a logic trap.  Of course things never work out this way.  What ends up happening is the Mormon missionary goes through the response and the Evangelicuck just repeats the same verses in Revelation 22 all over again.  It’s not like the Evangelical it’s debating in good faith, because he isn’t.

The Reason Why the Mormon Missionary Response to Matthew 7 and Revelation 22 Don’t Work

When Protestants and Evangelicals cite Matthew 7 and Revelation 22, they are using these verses as rhetorical tools to make Mormon missionaries feel bad and demoralized.  They aren’t debating.  They are just throwing a verse at us in an attempt to make us feel bad.  Evangelicucks use Matthew 7 and Revelation 22 just like leftists use the words racists, sexist, homophobe and bigot against conservatives.  It’s more or less the way Evangelicucks and Protestants call Mormons “poopy heads.”

Evangelicals quoting the Bible is just like this

Effective Ways to Respond to Matthew 7 and Revelation 22

When people throw rhetoric at you, the way to respond is to throw rhetoric right back at them.  One of the best ways to make your average Protestant or Evangelical give up the Matthew 7 or Revelation22 narrative is to make them feel bad about their religious beliefs.  What we do is throw their messed up churches right back in their face.  Mike Honcho created this meme that perfectly demonstrates the emptiness of Matthew 7 and Revelation 22 for the average Evangelicuck:

The meme perfectly captures the empty nature of the average Evangelical’s worship of the Bible.  These people have allowed homosexuals to completely take over their churches and turn them into a freak show.  How can they say anything about Joseph Smith or the Book of Mormon when they have lesbian pastors marrying gay couples in their church?  They can’t.

It is humiliating for the average Evangelical or Protestant to admit that their church has been invaded and conquered by dirty Sodomites.

Conclusion

The Mormon missionaries need to learn to respond to rhetorical attacks with their own rhetorical attacks.  When Evangelicals and Protestants attack Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, respond by saying, “At least we don’t have lesbians marrying gay couples in our church.”  If a Catholic tries the Matthew 7 and Revelation 22 attack respond by saying, “At least we don’t have cocaine fueled gay sex orgies going on in the Vatican in our church.”  When we respond to rhetoric with rhetoric then the Mormon missionaries will have a powerful tool to defeat Protestant and Evangelical narratives against Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon.

Book of Mormon DNA Evidence Proves Joseph Smith Correct About Ancient America

Book of Mormon DNA evidence is the Holy Grail for Mormons and Anti-Mormons alike.  CES Letter claims: “DNA analysis has concluded that Native American Indians do not originate from the Middle East or from Israelites but rather from Asia.”

CES Letter is basically the handbook of anti-Mormons. It has everything anti-Mormon needs to attack the church. But CES Letter gives no evidence or explanation when it comes to DNA and the Book of Mormon DNA evidence. It presents this as a self-evident argument, as if the science is settled.

Is the science settled?

Newsweek says evidence “proves” the Bering Strait theory–that Pre-Columbian natives of North and South America only are descended from Asians who traveled over the Bering Strait. Wikipedia does not even bother mentioning any other ideas where American ancestors may have originated. The co-author of a 2014 article in Nature boasts that it is “the final shovelful of dirt” on the hypothesis.

Simple-minded atheists treat science as the be-all-end-all truth, yet they are curiously quick to jump to conclusions and ignore the complexities of science. The evidence actually finds evidence for a large number of ancient immigration into America. If you look at these complexities, you actually find Book of Mormon DNA evidence to support the Book of Mormon model.

Middle Eastern DNA In North America

CES Letter ridicules the LDS church for pulling back on their claim that Lamanites were the “principal ancestors” of the “American Indians.”

They point to Joseph Smith’s Wentworth Letter:

In this important and interesting book the history of ancient America is unfolded, from its first settlement by a colony that came from the Tower of Babel at the confusion of languages to the beginning of the fifth century of the Christian era.

We are informed by these records that America in ancient times has been inhabited by two distinct races of people… The Jaredites were destroyed about the time that the Israelites came from Jerusalem, who succeeded them in the inheritance of the country. The principal nation of the second race fell in battle towards the close of the fourth century. The remnant are the Indians that now inhabit this country.

CES Letter says America was inhabited prior to the Tower of Babel, so this must be incorrect. But actually, DNA evidence does show this is correct.

1830 map of United States

Hg “x” haplogroup shows up in ancient Middle East and North America, exactly where Lehi originated and where Joseph Smith lived. When Joseph Smith wrote “this country” was he referring to Mexico, or Brazil, or the plains that hadn’t been added to the United States yet? No, he was referring to New England.

Wikipedia erased this map of DNA distribution from their Settlement of the Americas page, for some strange reason:

Why did Wikipedia remove this map from their page on Ancient America Settlement?

Hg “x” accounts for a quarter or the mtDNA of the Algonquian people in North America, but does not show up in South America or East Asia until later. It was rather isolated in the Middle East (including among Jews) and North America. Scientists note that the difference between haplogroup X in America and Middle East indicates “an early origin ‘likely at the very beginning of their expansion and spread from the Near East.’

Well, that’s what the Tower of Babel was, the very beginning of expansion from the Near East. The upper East Coast is a suitable spot for the Jaradites from what we read of them.

Scientists conclude Asia was “not intermediate between Native American clades and that of Europeans” for this DNA. So how did they get there? Scientists say early peoples somehow traveled over the Bering Strait without leaving DNA traces for many thousands of miles. But the sea-faring model of the Jaradites makes much more sense.

And yes, this haplogroup could be the oldest DNA in this area of North America.

There is the question of timing. Theologists date the Tower of Babel to 2,500 B.C. and scientists say Hg “x” was introduced much earlier than that. But the reliability of radioactive dating and what we assume about the time table of the bible is a totally different issue. Fact is, the DNA is there.

The famous Kennewick Man, a set of ancient American bones which shocked scientists because they looked more like Patrick Stewart than Clovis people, was found to have genetic similaries to western Europe, and the haplogroup X2a

The other haplogroup that we find in both the Middle East and North America is less conclusive: Haplogroup R.

Wikipedia erased the Haplogroup R map from their page as well, and on their Haplogroup R page they replaced it with an image that omits North and South America. But before Wikipedia’s revisions, here is what the map showed:

This shows a far-spread genetic marker across Europe, West Asia, and North America, with spots showing up many other places. The oldest remains of R are found are “mal’ta boy” in Siberia.

DNA evidence shows plenty of other groups. As Newsweek notes, there are also human remains found in America from before the Clovis people traveled over the Bering Strait. Where did they come from?

One important study, largely ignored, found African DNA in pre-Columbian America–“Indigenous Mexican- African admixture occurred prior to the European discovery of America. The date for the African skeletons indicate that there were several waves of West Africans who probably introduced African haplotypes into the Americas. The 25,000 Malians who sailed to America in 1310 probably had a major influence on the exchange of African genes in the Americas.”

DNA indicates a variety of immigration events to America, including from the Middle East.

Why Don’t Modern Indians Have Israelite DNA?

So we have Book of Mormon DNA evidence for the Jaradites. Oh, but what about the Nephites? If the Nephites came from Israel, why don’t modern Native Americans have Israelite DNA?

Maybe because the Nephites got killed off? Remember that? Joseph Smith said the principal ancestors fell in battle and left today’s American ancestors with “remnants,” the Lamanites.

The Book of Mormon says the Lamanites developed a dark skin that was different than the Nephites. How did that happen? Well, either their DNA mutated or they interbred with other civilizations–civilizations that apparently came over the Bering strait. Either way, the Book of Mormon tells us the Lamanites had Israelite original genetics bred out. So it’s no wonder that we don’t see archaeological genetic similarities when it comes to the descendants of Lehi.

This was not the case for the Jaradites. Their civilization of millions collapsed in a great final battle, but there is no indication that everybody got wiped out.

Imagine a family of Israelites shows up in a totally foreign land and looks totally different than everyone else. Imagine that some of this group interbreeds with the natives and tries to kill off the other part of the group. It would not be hard for the Lamanites to visually identify Nephites and wipe them out. So the Israelite DNA got wiped out. Simple as that.

Why Haven’t We Found Israelite DNA In Archaeology?

Oh, but shouldn’t we at least find some Israelite DNA in buried remains?

Well that depends how many buried remains scientists have sampled. It would take many thousands of samples from all over North and South America to reliably give us an idea. How many samples are scientists using?

For one study, a few dozen

Nope. Sorry. It’s going to take a lot more digging to come across Nephite DNA markers. If you look closely at the map of DNA samples you see that there are zero samples from the great plains, where Joseph Smith came across some bones that he said was a general among the Nephites. Zero samples. Maybe try digging around Ohio?

There is only one sample on the Yucatan Peninsula, where many Mormons place the Book of Mormon civilization. Just one. It is 12,000 years old, far outside the time frame of the Book of Mormon, and found at the bottom of a water pit where no Israelite would ever bury his dead.

The Nephites and Lamanites were fanatical about burying their dead, so their remains won’t be found except by widespread excavation. Even if remains are found, Israelites did not embalm their dead like the Egyptians did, so the DNA might not be preserved.

So the reason Nephite DNA has not been found by archaeologists is because they have not come across evidence that is likely to prove or disprove the Nephite model.

There are other studies that use more local samples. One study of the Mayan populations found a “complex demographic history” with all kinds of gene flow. Yet they found “founder events in the different ethnic groups or relative isolation.” Isolated communities.

Another study found that lots of DNA markers simply got wiped out, exactly like the Book of Mormon indicates:

While that doesn’t necessarily mean that the genetic diversity of the pre-Columbian era has been completely wiped out – other lineages not traced in this study may exist… But the find demonstrates what the researchers bluntly term the ‘high extinction rate’ for indigenous American people.

The best evidence for Nephite DNA is found in a study on Cherokee Indians. John Adair wrote in the 18th century that some Cherokees were known to speak a kind of Jewish language. A recent study found an ancient Cherokee princess with Jewish DNA, or rather DNA markers from Middle Eastern-North Africa. This branch of Cherokee is “genetically more likely to be Jewish than the typical American Jew of European ancestry.”

One very important part of this study is that the Cherokee experienced the same kind of complex gene flow and isolation as the Mayans. In fact, Cherokee communities “often carried Maya DNA.” So perhaps some of the Nephites who moved north mixed with these Cherokee communities.

Book of Mormon DNA Evidence Is Poor Either Way

Archaeology is very shaky science to begin with, and when you add to that the difficulty of mapping DNA–sporatic mutations, poor preservation, few samples, post-Columbian DNA mixture–it becomes a nightmare.

The title of this article is misleading. I did that on purpose, to ridicule the anti-Mormons who think DNA evidence proves anything. Book of Mormon DNA evidence doesn’t prove the Book of Mormon model. It doesn’t disprove it. Archeological DNA can’t prove anything either way.

All we know is some skeleton with similar genetics to another skeleton somehow ended up somewhere. That doesn’t tell us much.

The science of human origin locations is rapidly changing. Just last week an important study came out that found humans originated in Europe, not Africa. Maybe next year a study will find humans originated in Australia? In Missouri?

Actually I am glad that we do not have more Book of Mormon DNA Evidence either way. The Catholic church has all of their ancient relics that supposedly provide physical proof of bible stories. They tried to definitely reconcile science and religion, and it didn’t end well. Because what is the purpose of faith? Flimsy scientific evidence is just superstition.

If a scientist dug up Laban’s sword and a rock with the inscription “Hi! My name is Nephi and I wrote the Book of Mormon,” we would descend into a narrative of physical evidence and the role of faith would diminish. The LDS church has always been careful to never provide physical objects as “proof” of Mormon claims, never to give us relics. I think this keeps our belief in the Book of Mormon grounded on faith.

To look at a tiny sample of ancient bones as the basis for your belief in the Book of Mormon, either way, is a stunning display of superstition.

Mitt Romney Happy Merchant

Mitt Romney Scheming Demonstrates the Worst Anti-Mormon Stereotypes

Mitt Romney just can’t help himself.  Ever since his ridiculous lecture to the American people when he snarkily attacked Donald Trump he’s been trying to backstab Trump.  After Trump destroyed his plot and destroyed his dream of a brokered GOP convention Romney went and hid in the shadows.  People assumed that he gave up and went home.  Unfortunately that isn’t what happened.

Behind the scenes Mitt Romney continues to scheme against Donald Trump.  He was one of the leaders and organizers of the so-called Renegade Party.  The Renegade Party gave us the laughable cuck David French.

Cuckservative Mitt Romney thinks this man can stop Trump

Then he had Paul Ryan and other leaders of the so-called #NeverTrump movement come out to Utah for a weekend conference.  At the conference they planned a series of passive aggressive attacks against Donald Trump.  After spending a weekend with Romney suddenly Paul Ryan, whose wife is a major Democrat lobbyist, announced that he can’t support Donald Trump.

Paul Ryan not a friend to the American people

After hanging out with Mitt Romney for a weekend the #NeverTrump crowd tried to change the Republican Convention rules.  They wanted the rules to hold that all delegates are non-bound if they can’t morally support the candidate.  Last week Brent Scowcroft, who is LDS and is one of George Bush Sr.’s best friends, came out and endorsed Hillary Clinton.  Mitt Romney is the common mover and influencer behind all these shenanigans.

Mitt Romney is trying to manipulate American politics behind the scenes for his benefit.  Romney still wants to be president of the United States.  He knows that if Trump gets elected president then Romney will never have another opportunity to run for president.  Romney is undermining his own political party’s candidate for his selfish gain.

The #1 most powerful attack non-Mormons make against the LDS Church is claiming that we are a bunch of greedy schemers trying to manipulate the world behind the scenes.  We get accused of acting like (((certain people))),

He’s way too comfortable acting like this

who always scheme against western Christian society.  Mitt Romney is one of a handful of the most powerful, influential and well known Mormons in the world.  His actions perfectly represent the worst negative stereotype about Mormons.  Romney’s actions are ruining the reputation of millions of Mormons around the world with his secret schemes working against the will of the people.

The Book of Mormon repeatedly warns its readers that corrupt political scheming destroys civilizations.  The Gaddianton Robbers used political corruption to advance their interests against the needs of the people.  Their corruption brought Nephite society to ruin.  Secret combinations directly led to the outbreak of WWI.  Mitt Romney’s actions show that he doesn’t care about the lessons from Helaman or he is ignorant of its lessons.  Mormons should know that corrupt political scheming for personal gain destroys civilizations.

Mormons need to shun Mitt Romney until he repents of his secret combination.  Romney’s actions are ruining our reputation.  American politics are becoming more tribal and nationalistic.  Groups who are perceived to be working against the interests of the American people will be punished.  This includes the LDS Church.  Romney’s corrupt actions are setting the stage for a major backlash against the LDS Church and its members.  For the love of his people (which he doesn’t have no matter how much he professes his love for the Gospel and the Mormon people); Mitt Romney needs to stop his scheming today.

Joseph Smith Was Right the Kingmen were Cuckservatives

Joseph Smith never could have invented the Book of Mormon.  The lessons from the Book of Mormon apply to the modern world.  We’ve all had to witness the Republican party undermine normal Americans for years.  What many people don’t know is Joseph Smith foresaw the cuckservative phenomena with the Kingmen.

Nevertheless, they did not long maintain an entire peace in the land, for there began to be a contention among the people concerning the chief judge Pahoran; for behold, there were a part of the people who desired that a few particular points of the law should be altered.

But behold, Pahoran would not alter nor suffer the law to be altered; therefore, he did not hearken to those who had sent in their voices with their petitions concerning the altering of the law.

Therefore, those who were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with him, and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land; therefore there arose a warm dispute concerning the matter, but not unto bloodshed.

And it came to pass that those who were desirous that Pahoran should be dethroned from the judgment-seat were called kingmen, for they were desirous that the law should be altered in a manner to overthrow the free government and to establish a king over the land.

And those who were desirous that Pahoran should remain chief judge over the land took upon them the name of freemen; and thus was the division among them, for the freemen had sworn or covenanted to maintain their rights and the privileges of their religion by a free government.

And it came to pass that this matter of their contention was settled by the voice of the people. And it came to pass that the voice of the people came in favor of the freemen, and Pahoran retained the judgment-seat, which caused much rejoicing among the brethren of Pahoran and also many of the people of liberty, who also put the king-men to silence, that they durst not oppose but were obliged to maintain the cause of freedom.

Now those who were in favor of kings were those of high birth, and they sought to be kings; and they were supported by those who sought power and authority over the people.  (Alma 51:2-8).

In these verses we see a bunch of wealthy men who have lots of power and influence who want more influence.  They tried to put themselves into positions of royal power by using the voting process.  They failed because the people would not give them complete political power.  The Kingmen were elite lawyers, corrupt businessmen and their hangers on just like modern cuckservatives.  The Kingmen hated their own people so much they refused to defend their own country and even were happy when their own people were invaded:

And it came to pass that when the men who were called kingmen had heard that the Lamanites were coming down to battle against them, they were glad in their hearts; and they refused to take up arms, for they were so wroth with the chief judge, and also with the people of liberty, that they would not take up arms to defend their country.  (Alma 51:13).

Cuckservatives will always support an invading enemy over their own people as long as they think they will get some advantage from it.  Look at modern cuckservatives in the media.  They will happily attack Donald Trump and are even talking about supporting Hillary Clinton over Trump.  For 20 years these people have been telling us the Clintons were evil and terrible, but when a Republican they don’t like comes along, suddenly they are willing to support Hillary.

When the Kingmen had an opportunity to undermine the Nephite war effort, they took it:

But behold, there are those who do joy in your afflictions, yea, insomuch that they have risen up in rebellion against me, and also those of my people who are freemen, yea, and those who have risen up are exceedingly numerous.

And it is those who have sought to take away the judgment-seat from me that have been the cause of this great iniquity; for they have used great flattery, and they have led away the hearts of many people, which will be the cause of sore affliction among us; they have withheld our provisions, and have daunted our freemen that they have not come unto you.

And behold, they have driven me out before them, and I have fled to the land of Gideon, with as many men as it were possible that I could get.  (Alma 60:3-5).

The Kingmen happily undermined the war effort by leading a coup against the chief judge and withheld food from the soldiers fighting on the front lines.  Even worse, the Kingmen made a political alliance with Ammoron the king of the Lamanites:

They have got possession of the land, or the city, of Zarahemla; they have appointed a king over them, and he hath written unto the king of the Lamanites, in the which he hath joined an alliance with him; in the which alliance he hath agreed to maintain the city of Zarahemla, which maintenance he supposeth will enable the Lamanites to conquer the remainder of the land, and he shall be placed king over this people when they shall be conquered under the Lamanites.  (Alma 61:8).

As soon as the Kingmen seized the center of the country, they immediately made an alliance with the king of the Lamanites.  We can see the mentality of cuckservatives with the Kingmen.  The Kingmen would rather fight their own people rather than fight their enemies.  Look at cuckservatives today.  They would rather spend their time fighting against people on the right than resist the left.  Modern conservatives have conserved nothing.  Look at how they even undermine themselves with immigration.  Immigrants vote democrat, that’s just a fact.  However conservatives are always pushing for more immigration and amnesty even though it means the end of the Republican Party.  They are happy to destroy themselves as long as they get paid for it and have a role in the new conquered government.

Joseph Smith never could have imagined that highly powerful people would actively sell out their countries.  In the American Revolution the elites supported the revolution and overwhelmingly stayed unified through the war.  Joseph Smith didn’t have an example of the way cuckservatives sell their people out.  The Book of Mormon has the cuckservative laid out perfectly.  Joseph Smith didn’t have the book Cuckservative and never could have made it up even if he tried.  Joseph Smith getting the cuckservative phenomena right with the Kingmen shows that the Book of Mormon is valid.

Joseph Smith Was Right Korihor and Obnoxious Atheist Intellectuals

Joseph Smith never could have imagined the snarky quasi intellectual atheist who talks down to normal people.  In the Book of Mormon, the Nephites had to suffer with spergy obnoxious wannabe intellectual atheists just like we have to suffer with them today.  Let’s take a look at some of Korihor’s greatest hits.

O ye that are bound down under a foolish and a vain hope, why do ye yoke yourselves with such foolish things? Why do ye look for Christ? For no man can know of anything which is to come.

Behold, these things which ye call prophecies, which ye say are handed down by holy prophets, behold, they are foolish traditions of your fathers.

How do ye know of their surety ? Behold, ye cannot know of things which ye do not see; therefore ye cannot know that there shall be a Christ.

Ye look forward and say that ye see a remission of your sins. But behold, it is the effect of a frenzied mind; and this derangement of your minds comes because of the traditions of your fathers, which lead you away into a belief of things which are not so.  (Alma 30:13-16).

It’s amazing to hear Korihor rant and rave.  He sounds just like a college professor or a graduate student who thinks he knows a lot.  The sum of his attacks on belief in Christ is, “Muh believers are dumb.”  Who does this sound like?  Obnoxious atheists today who don’t have any friends.  Notice how in verse 13 he fires shaming language at believers by saying they had a “vain and foolish hope.”  Shaming language works and Korihor knew how to use it.

Korihor is a total narcissist, just like atheists today.  He spouts the total knowledge and wisdom of atheists in these verses.  The total knowledge of atheists can be summed up as, “God doesn’t show himself to me, so he must not be real.”  Hardly great wisdom!

These verses are full of obnoxious snark.  Listen to how he says belief in God is a function of a “frenzied mind.”  You can just imagine some college student sitting outside at Starbucks sipping his overpriced coffee, talking with a fat girl and trying to impress her.  You can just hear his obnoxious condescension from these verses.

Korihor was a social darwinist:

And many more such things did he say unto them, telling them that there could be no atonement made for the sins of men, but every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and that every man conquered according to his strength; and whatsoever a man did was no crime.  (Alma 30:17).

The profile of these kinds of people is predictable.  They always believe the same nonsense.  Of course Korihor would believe that people only prospered according to how smart they are.  It’s just like today where autistic atheists are sitting around on a computer talking about how they are smart and their smarts makes them qualified to lead.  They never show what they have done to benefit the world.  It’s just the obnoxious fetishization of intelligence.  Like all spergy atheists, Korihor shows that he has no sympathy to normal people who like religion and appreciate its value.

Korihor was able to give a rationalization for trying to prosper at other people’s expense.  He said that, “whatsoever a man did was no crime.”  Basically he said that if you want to steal from someone stupid, then there is no problem with that.  If desirable men wanted to exploit women, then fine if they can get away with it.  If attractive women want to exploit men, then fine if they can get away with it.  If you can get away with it, do it, is the social responsibility policy of Korihor.

Korihor’s gospel was pure social Darwinism.  Korihor taught there was no sin.  If you could get away with it, then you should do it.  Korihor’s teachings gave intellectual cover for all levels of society to behave badly.  If the rich wanted to exploit the poor, then fine go for it according to Korihor.  If the poor wanted to exploit the middle class then fine go for it, according to Korihor.  Korihor gave intellectual justification for every bad behavior under the sun.

After Korihor’s public rants, he ended up arrested and he continued his autistic rants in front of a local Nephite judge:

Now the high priest’s name was Giddonah. And Korihor said unto him: Because I do not teach the foolish traditions of your fathers, and because I do not teach this people to bind themselves down under the foolish ordinances and performances which are laid down by ancient priests, to usurp power and authority over them, to keep them in ignorance, that       they may not lift up their heads, but be brought down according to thy words.

Ye say that this people is a free people. Behold, I say they are in bondage. Ye say that those ancient prophecies are true. Behold, I say that ye do not know that they are true.

Ye say that this people is a guilty and a fallen people, because of the transgression of a parent.  Behold, I say that a child is not guilty because of its parents.

And ye also say that Christ shall come. But behold, I say that ye do not know that there shall be a Christ.  And ye say also that he shall be slain for the sins of the world

And thus ye lead away this people after the foolish traditions of your fathers, and according to your own desires; and ye keep them down, even as it were in bondage, that ye may glut yourselves with the labors of their hands, that they durst not look up with boldness, and that they durst not enjoy their rights and privileges.

Yea, they durst not make use of that which is their own lest they should offend their priests, who do yoke them according to their desires, and have brought them to believe, by their traditions and their dreams and their whims and their visions and their pretended mysteries, that they should, if they did not do according to their words, offend some unknown being, who they say is Goda being who never has been seen or known, who never was nor ever will be.  (Alma 30:23-28).

Korihor is a professional hater.  When he gets confronted by a responsible member of the Nephite government who didn’t want him ranting and raving against Nephite civilization all Korihor could do was go on and attack the ethics of the local judge.  This is the second law of Social Justice Warriors: SJW’s always project.  Korihor was a cheap scam artist masquerading as an intellectual, so he projected that everybody else was the same.

Eventually Korihor ended up in front of Alma the Younger, who head read SJW’s Always Lie and knew how to handle Korihor.

And then Alma said unto him: Believest thou that there is a God?

And he answered, Nay.

Now Alma said unto him: Will ye deny again that there is a God, and also deny the Christ? For behold, I say unto you, I know there is a God, and also that Christ shall come.

And now what evidence have ye that there is no God, or that Christ cometh not? I say unto you that ye have none, save it be your word only.  (Alma 30:37-40).

Alma laid out Korihor’s doctrine perfectly.  All Korihor had was his opinion and nothing else.  Korihor’s teachings were nothing but the ravings of a professional hater.  The Doctrine of Atheism can be summed up best by, “I don’t believe in God, therefore God is false.”  That’s it, nothing more, nothing less.  Atheism is nothing but the rantings and ravings of spoiled children.  Alma knew that SJW’s always lie.  He also knew the best way to respond to them: We don’t care.

The story of Korihor ends on a happy note.  After Alma confounded Korihor, gave him a sign and cursed Korihor to being a mute, Korihor ended up alone on the streets.  He got to see that he was just an obnoxious sperg who nobody liked.

And it came to pass that as he went forth among the people, yea, among a people who had separated themselves from the Nephites and called themselves Zoramites, being led by a man whose name was Zoramand as he went forth amongst them, behold, he was run upon and trodden down, even until he was dead.

And thus we see the end of him who perverteth the ways of the Lord; and thus we see that the devil will not support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to hell.  (Alma 30:59-60).

Alma 30 perfectly predicts the obnoxious nature of atheists.  It shows their doctrine which basically is, “Muh you are stupid.”  Alma 30 perfectly shows that atheists are spergs who nobody likes who rant and rave against normalcy.  It also correctly demonstrates the mindset of the SJW.  We see in Alma 30 that Korihor always lied and he always projected.  Did Joseph Smith read SJW’s Always Lie in the 1820’s?

Joseph Smith never heard about SJW’s nor atheists.  He never hung out with whiny spergy intellectuals at Starbucks.  He never could have imagined what they would be like.  Alma 30 is the best Chapter in the Book of Mormon as proof that it is a valid document.  It perfectly demonstrates what SJW’s and atheists are like to a T.  Joseph Smith was right because SJW’s Always Lie just like Korihor.

Joseph Smith was Right Political Violence Destroys Civilizations

Joseph Smith was Right Secret Combinations

Joseph Smith was Right the Fall of the Nephites and the Russian Revolution

Joseph Smith Gets it Right The Book of Mormon Demonstrated Aztec Warfare

Joseph Smith Was Right Alma the Younger Could Be a Jerk

Joseph Smith wasn’t a trained historian and he never could have understood that when historical figures write, they bring their biases with them.  One of the best ways to view the validity of historical documents is to look at the biases of the writers.  In the Book of Mormon we find and excellent example of Alma the Younger being a jerk to his son Corianton.

And now, my son, I have somewhat more to say unto thee than what I said unto thy brother; for behold, have ye not observed the steadiness of thy brother, his faithfulness, and his diligence in keeping the commandments of God? Behold, has he not set a good example for thee?

For thou didst not give so much heed unto my words as did thy brother, among the people of the  Zoramites. Now this is what I have against thee; thou didst go on unto boasting in thy strength and thy wisdom.

And this is not all, my son. Thou didst do that which was grievous unto me; for thou didst forsake the ministry, and did go over into the land of Siron among the borders of the Lamanites, after the harlot Isabel.

Yea, she did steal away the hearts of many; but this was no excuse for thee, my son. Thou shouldst have tended to the ministry wherewith thou wast entrusted.  (Alma 39:1-4).

Suffer not yourself to be led away by any vain or foolish thing; suffer not the devil to lead away your heart again after those wicked harlots. Behold, O my son, how great iniquity ye brought upon the Zoramites; for when they saw your conduct they would not believe in my words.  (Alma 39:11).

The Zoramites were bad news.  They viewed their own poor people as “dross” to be exploited.  They viewed their poor people as nothing more than a cheap labor source to exploit for their personal benefit.  Alma had no success preaching to the rich.  He had lots of success preaching to the poor.  Did Alma really believe that the rich Zoramites would have responded to his teaching if Corianton hadn’t messed up?

Corianton made a major mistake.  There’s no doubt about it.  His actions were a major embarrassement, there’s no question about it.  Here’s the thing. . ., missionaries mess up all the time.  It’s a tragic truth about the missionary effort but Mormon missionaries get into trouble with local girls all the time.  Are these young men the reason why the whole world hasn’t converted yet?  No of course not.  It’s ridiculous to even consider this train of logic.  It’s the same with Alma.  Yes, Corianton messed up big time.  Yes, Corianton’s actions hurt the effort.  NO, Corianton didn’t torpedo the whole mission to the Zoramites.  Alma and the other missionaries had lots of success teaching to the poor Zoramites, the mission was far from a failure.

It’s even more tragic to think about the implications of Alma accusing Corianton of being responsible for the Zoramite elite not repenting.  After the mission to the Zoramites, the Zoramites wanted the return of their poor so they could exploit them.  The Nephites and Ammonites refused to return the poor Zoramites.  The Zoramite elite made a political alliance with the Lamanites and a major war ensued.  Thousands of people died as a result of the rebellion of the Zoramites.  Alma blaming Corianton for the failure of the mission to the Zoramites is implying that Corianton is responsible for the horrible deaths of thousands of people.  That’s a horrible implication for Alma to make at his son and is ridiculous.

How does this story about one of the leading figures in the Book of Mormon being a jerk show the truth of it?  It’s simple, real people make mistakes.  Alma the Younger was angry with his son.  Even great people like Alma the Younger make mistakes.  They are human.  When we read historical documents we often see the individual biases of the writers.  They often write their views of the world that we know are wrong.  The way Alma blames Corianton shows his bias.  If Joseph Smith were making up the Book of Mormon he would have made sure to show either how Corianton’s actions did destroy the mission to the Zoramites or he never would have mentioned Corianton at all.  Instead we get to see Alma the Younger’s humanity and see that he isn’t perfect and even a great man like Alma the Younger makes major mistakes.  Joseph Smith was right and the Book of Mormon is a valid document because it shows the humanity and shortcomings of its heroes.

Joseph Smith Was Right Secret Combinations

One of the biggest themes of the fall of Nephite civilization is the way the Nephites engaged in corruption conspiracies called secret combinations.  In the Book of Mormon the Book of Helaman is full of examples of corrupt Nephites creating secret combinations to increase their power.

And he went unto those that sent him, and they all entered into a covenant, yea, swearing by their everlasting Maker, that they would tell no man that Kishkumen had murdered Pahoran.

Therefore, Kishkumen was not known among the people of Nephi, for he was in disguise at the time that he murdered Pahoran. And Kishkumen and his band, who had covenanted with him, did mingle themselves among the people, in a manner that they all could not be found; but as many as were found were condemned unto death.  (Helaman 1:11-12)

In these verses we see that corrupt Nephites decided to conspire together to protect each other from the government.  They conspired to work together and hide their actions from the people in an attempt to increase their power at the expense of everybody else.

But behold, Kishkumen, who had murdered Pahoran, did lay wait to destroy Helaman also; and he was upheld by his band, who had entered into a covenant that no one should know his wickedness.

For there was one Gadianton, who was exceedingly expert in many words, and also in his craft, to carry on the secret work of murder and of robbery; therefore he became the leader of the band of Kishkumen.

Therefore he did flatter them, and also Kishkumen, that if they would place him in the judgmentseat he would grant unto those who belonged to his band that they should be placed in power and authority among the people; therefore Kishkumen sought to destroy Helaman.  (Helaman 2:3-5).

These verses show that the goal of secret combinations is power of everybody else and they are willing to kill and murder to get it.

But behold, Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of the Nephites, insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings.

And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.

And thus they might murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God.

And whosoever of those who belonged to their band should reveal unto the world of their wickedness and their abominations, should be tried, not according to the laws of their country, but according to the laws of their wickedness, which had been given by Gadianton and Kishkumen.

Now behold, it is these secret oaths and covenants which Alma commanded his son should not go forth unto the world, lest they should be a means of bringing down the people unto destruction.

Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants did not come forth unto Gadianton from the records which were delivered unto Helaman; but behold, they were put into the heart of Gadianton by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit

Yea, that same being who did plot with Cain, that if he would murder his brother Abel it should not be known unto the world. And he did plot with Cain and his followers from that time forth.

And also it is that same being who put it into the hearts of the people to build a tower sufficiently high that they might get to heaven.  And it was that same being who led on the people who came from that tower into this land; who spread the works of darkness and abominations over all the face of the land, until he dragged the people down to an entire destruction, and to an everlasting hell.

Yea, it is that same being who put it into the heart of Gadianton to still carry on the work of darkness, and of secret murder; and he has brought it forth from the beginning of man even down to this time.

And behold, it is he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, and doth hand down their plots, and their oaths, and their covenants, and their plans of awful wickedness, from generation to generation according as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men.

And now behold, he had got great hold upon the hearts of the Nephites; yea, insomuch that they had become exceedingly wicked; yea, the more part of them had turned out of the way of righteousness, and did trample under their feet the commandments of God, and did turn unto their own ways, and did build up unto themselves idols of their gold and their silver.  (Helaman 6:21-31).

This is a long series of verses and it gets to the heart of secret combinations.  Secret combinations are all about power and the ability to live degenerately.  The goal of getting into a secret combination is to commit sexual sin.  It is to have a lot of money at other’s expense.  It is to create relationships to help people get rich quick at somebody else’s expense.

It’s critical to see that when the Nephites found out secret combinations were running wild in their society, their reaction was to join the secret combinations.  They loved the idea of getting rich at their neighbor’s expense.  They all saw the scam and they wanted in on it.  They wanted to get in on the sexual degeneracy.  They hoped that they would be the one’s committing the whoredoms and sexual sins while excluding everybody else.

Condemning the righteous because of their righteousness; letting the guilty and the wicked go unpunished because of their money; and moreover to be held in office at the head of government, to rule and do according to their wills, that they might get gain and glory of the world, and, moreover, that they might the more easily commit adultery, and steal, and kill, and do according to their own wills (Helaman 7:5).

In this verse we see the end goal of secret combinations which is power, the ability to commit adultery, the power to steal at will and murder and do whatever they want at everybody else’s expense.

In modern America secret combinations are rampant and very powerful.  Let’s look at a few of them.  A few years ago there was an investment banker named Sage Kelly.  He worked investing in the healthcare field.  Being an investment banker in healthcare isn’t a great job, but Sage Kelly was able to earn far more than others in his industry.  What was his secret?  Did he work harder than everybody else?

What he did was have wild parties for healthcare executives.  He would have drug fueled partner swapping parties with him, his wife the other executive and the other executive’s wife.  Before long he had gotten the business of all the other elites in his industry.  Of course it all ended in tears when his wife filed for divorce and the whole story came out.  From the Sage Kelly example we can see how he used sexual degeneracy to get everybody else’s business.  He learned all of these guys’ dirt secrets and participated in group adultery.  By joining together in degenerate drug fueled partner swapping parties, these corrupt business men joined themselves together in a secret combination and Sage Kelly became rich until his secret was exposed.

Another great example of a secret combination working to undermine the will of the people is the Republican party for the 2016 presidential nomination.  Did you ever wonder why there were originally 17 Republican candidates for president?  It is because the goal of the Republican elites was to nominate Jeb Bush.  The Bush family is very powerful, but unpopular.  They knew they would struggle to get Jeb! more than 20% of the vote.  Their plan was to spit off every group of Republican voters off onto small candidates like Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, etc.  If 10 or more candidates all got 7 to 10% of the vote and Jeb got 20% of the vote, Jeb could get the nomination.  This plan worked well in 2012 when the Republican party bosses pulled the same stunt to get Mitt Romney nominated for president, even though Romney was a good man.  In 2016 this combination failed due to Donald Trump appearing on the scene and blowing that combination to pieces.

Another great example of secret combinations is Hollywood and the casting couch.  One of the ways that Hollywood screens who gets cast for parts and who doesn’t is by seeing which actors and actresses are willing to give themselves sexually to Hollywood producers and executives.  Hollywood wants girls who are willing to prostitute themselves for jobs because the girls who are willing to prostitute themselves will be more obedient to Hollywood and easier to control and work with.  Hollywood wants to work with young men who are willing to allow themselves to be sodomized by creepy old men because being involved in a horrific and embarrassing act means these young men are totally dependent on Hollywood.

Think about a young man who wants to be an action actor.  If he gives himself up sexually to creepy Hollywood producers and executives they have lots of dirt on him.  He can’t go and build up himself because they will just reveal his secret and he will lose his fame.  Nobody wants to cheer for an action hero who was sodomized to get his role.  Hollywood runs on sexual degeneracy.  It keeps everybody in line and dependent on each other.  Hollywood’s casting couch is a perfect example people using sexual degeneracy to increase their own power.

The Book of Mormon is clear that secret combinations are dangerous.  They will destroy whole societies.  The cases of Wall Street sexual corruption, political corruption from the Republican party and Hollywood demonstrate that 3 of America’s most powerful and influential institutions are completely controlled by secret combinations who use money, influence and sexual degeneracy to get money and power.  Joseph Smith never could have imagined a society completely controlled by secret combinations.  The Book of Mormon being full of references to secret combinations shows that Joseph Smith was inspired by God and the Book of Mormon is valid scripture.

The “Just Like Laman and Lemuel” Libel

It’s tragic how sometimes Mormon Church leaders use shaming language to manipulate members.  Church leaders use shaming language because it is easier than inspiring embers to live better; and because church leaders can virtue signal as morally superior and because they can use shaming language to AMOG the men in the congregation.  In the LDS Church one of the worst shaming language statements is, “If you don’t do (whatever the leader wants you to do), then you are just like Laman and Lemuel.”

Using shaming language that tells members of the church they are just like L& L is horrific.  Why is it one of the worst things a Mormon leader can tell members of the church?  Let’s take a look at Laman and Lemuel’s actions:

  1. They violently attacked their brothers and would have beaten them to death before and angel intervened. (1 Nephi 3:28-29).
  2. Tied up Nephi and left him to die in the desert. (1 Nephi 7:16).
  3. Refused to work to feed their family when they were in danger of starvation in the wilderness. (1 Nephi 16:18-23).
  4. Plotted to kill their father and brother after the death of Ishmael. (1 Nephi 16:36-37).
  5. Attempted to kill Nephi and throw him into the sea. (1 Nephi 17:48).
  6. Rebelled on the ship, tied up Nephi and almost let the whole group die in a sea storm. (1 Nephi 18:8-15).
  7. Laman and Lemuel rebelled, plotted to kill Nephi and forced Nephi and his followers to flee into the wilderness. (2 Nephi 5:1-7).
  8. Laman and Lemuel started wars against Nephi and his followers. (2 Nephi 5:34).

Let’s take a look at the felonies Laman and Lemuel committed against Nephi: assault and battery, attempted murder, conspiracy, rebellion and war.  That’s a laundry list of the worst sins anybody can commit.  The only major sins not included in L & L’s actions were rape and sodomy.  When you hold L & L’s sins up to the light, they were horrific sinners and only Heavenly Father’s constant and direct intervention kept them on their journey to the Americas.  L & L were evil wicked men and were low grade bad news who repeatedly attempted murder.

Mormons are overwhelmingly wonderful salt of the Earth people who love Heavenly Father and just want to do good.  Faithful Mormons have nothing in common with L & L who were the scum of the Earth.  In fact the vast majority of all people in the world are nothing like L & L.  Very few people on Earth are anything like Laman and Lemuel.

Where does the “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel come from?  It comes from 3 elements:

  1. Nephi talks about how Laman and Lemuel constantly murmured against Lehi and Nephi. (1 Nephi 2:11 & many other verses).
  2. Laman and Lemuel were lazy and refused to serve and help Nephi build a ship. (1 Nephi 17:17-18).
  3. People who use the “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel say that Laman and Lemuel went through the Gospel motions but their heart wasn’t really in it. In relation to this point I have personally heard with my own eyes a church leader who supports this libel says, “Laman and Lemuel did some good things.”

The 3 arguments members of the church use to support the “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel are laughable on their face.  Let’s look at them.

First of all everybody has a bad day.  Many times even great people complain about the tasks they are commanded to perform.  The prophet Jonah hated the idea of preaching in Nineveh and fled his calling.  Even the prophet Lehi complained against the Lord.  Regular people have struggles and complain or “murmur.”  It’s just a part of life.  The difference between having some struggles and L & L is they were violent men who were rebellious and attempted to murder their father and brother on multiple occasions.  How often do our complaints lead to murder attempts?  It’s ridiculous to compare normal people who have struggles with violent attempted murderers.

On the second point, there are times when everybody is unable or unwilling to serve.  We all have lives and need to take time for ourselves.  We can’t give ourselves 24/7 or else our lives and our families’ lives will suffer.  Have you noticed what the families of many of the members of the church who do sacrifice themselves for the church 24/7 are like?  Their families often (usually) are total trainwrecks and they have multiple children become full apostates.  We all have to set appropriate boundaries in our lives and we all can’t spend all of our time in church service.  It’s ridiculous to compare members of the church who can’t serve 24/7 with Laman and Lemuel.

The argument that Laman and Lemuel went through the Gospel motions and even “did good things” is laughable on its face.  What good did L & L do?  Users of the “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel say, “they went on the journey and they got married.”  They only went on the journey because Heavenly Father constantly intervened to keep them on the journey.  The inheritors of the New World were to descend from Laman and Lemuel, so they had to go on the journey.  The journey to the New World was successful in spite of Laman and Lemuel not because of them.  On the whole “they got married” thing users of the “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel say is ridiculous.  Lots of evil people get married.  Getting married doesn’t make you good or bad.  L & L contributed nothing positive of their free will.  They were useless, less than useless in fact.  Nephi would have been better off with useless people than Laman and Lemuel.

It’s wrong to compare faithful members of the Mormon Church to L & L.  Very few members of the church have anything in common with vicious murderers like Laman and Lemuel.  The “just like Laman and Lemuel” libel is horrific shaming language and needs to end.

Joseph Smith Was Right the Fall of the Nephites and the Russian Revolution

Joseph Smith saw the evils of the modern world.  The best evidence for the Book of Mormon is the way it predicts the modern world.  The Book of Mormon correctly demonstrated that Islam is the Great and Abominable Church founded by Satan himself.  Joseph Smith also saw what elites are like when they become degenerate an unable to govern.  The fall of the Nephites is similar to the fall of the Whites in the Russian Civil War.

When reading at the end of the Book of Mormon one of the things that jumps out is how the Nephites knew they were corrupt and degenerate, but they just didn’t care.  They performed ritualistic rape and cannibalism on Lamanite women.  Not only did they engage in military practices that caused the Lamanites to decide to wage a war of extermination on the Nephites, but the Nephites refused to fight intelligently.

Towards the end of the Nephites’ final war against the Lamanites, the Nephites sought a savior general to save them.  They were able to convince Mormon to come out of retirement to lead their armies.  What happened when Mormon tried to enforce discipline on the Nephites’ armies?  They refused to follow his instructions:

O the depravity of my people!  They are without order and without mercy. Behold, I am but a man, and I have but the strength of a man, and I cannot any longer enforce my commands.

And they have become strong in their perversion; and they are alike brutal, sparing none, neither old nor young; and they delight in everything save that which is good; and the suffering of our women and our children upon all the face of this land doth exceed everything; yea, tongue cannot tell, neither can it be written.  (Moroni 9:18-19).

Instead of fighting to survive, the Nephites fought poorly, refused to use successful military techniques and put their survival at risk so they could capture Lamanites for their horrific rituals.

During the Russian Civil War, neither the Reds nor the Whites had much popular support.  The people knew that Lenin and his followers were bad news who would bring ruin on the country.  The leadership of the Whites opposed to the Reds were made up primarily of former military officers in the Czar’s army and extremely rich nobles who would lose everything if the Reds won.  The Reds promised the people that they would get everything from the Whites if the supported Lenin.

The people didn’t believe Lenin and his supporters and wanted to support the Whites.  However the Whites refused to offer any domestic plan that would allow the people to reject the Reds.  The Whites more or less told the people that after the war they could go back to the semi feudal, nearly serfed status they had before WWI and the Russian Revolution.  Because the Whites didn’t offer the people anything in exchange for their support, the people stood by while the Reds slowly conquered the country.

By 1921 it was clear that the Whites were going to lose the war.  All of the leaders of the Whites gathered in Crimea and Kiev.  The Whites all went to their big vacation homes on the Black Sea and instead of figuring out what they could do to reverse their fortunes in the war, they conducted a huge party.  The Russian soon to be dispossessed elites spent their last winter in Russia having the party of their lives.  They engaged in all kinds of degeneracy with the last of their wealth and power instead of making changes that would have allowed them to resist the Reds and win the war.  Even at the end of the Russian Civil War, if the Whites had shown any desire to inspire the people, they could have won the war.  The Whites had lots of foreign support and the people were already starting to feel the oppression of living under Communist rule.  Nevertheless the Czarist elites were too corrupt and degenerate to repent and change their plans.  They wanted things to stay how they were, so they could live degenerate lives off their unearned wealth.  Because they refused to change and repent they lost everything.

At the end of the Book of Mormon the Nephites were just like the corrupt Russian elites.  They wanted to live a life of sin and corruption.  They could have stopped the madness and saved themselves, but that would have required repentance.  The Russian elite, instead of repenting had one last big party.  The Nephites instead of repenting and following basic military discipline chose to try to capture Lamanites for their cannibalistic rituals.

Reading the writings of Mormon and Moroni, you get the feeling of what the elites are like in a revolutionary period.  They are disconnected from reality.  They are corrupt: mentally, physically and emotionally.  Mormon shows how elites when they are about to lose their society think.  They just want to engage in sin and they don’t care about the consequences.

Joseph Smith was just a farmer.  He had no access to the elites of America or France or Russia.  The Russian Revolution and Civil War were still 100 years in the future when the Book of Mormon was published.  Joseph Smith never was around corrupt and degenerate elites.  He never could have correctly written about them based on his life experience.  He had to have received inspiration from God.

In the modern west, our societies have the same nonsensical mentality as the Russian elite during the Civil War and as the Nephites.  Joseph Smith was able to see this in the Book of Mormon.  Look at the nonsense our elites push on us.  Our elites tell us a man can be a womanAt the same time they tell us we are bigots for not wanting Muslims to move in to our countries.  They literally are bringing in invaders that plan to kill or convert them.  At the same time they tell us our culture is boring and we need “cultural enrichment.”  They don’t care that to Muslims “cultural enrichment” looks something like this:

Our corrupt elites want this to happen to us
