If you have a true believing spouse as I do you might have already discovered that the only way to get their attention is to work from within their paradigm. They simply will not listen to outside sources with the same respect or reverence.

That said, The thing that has gotten her attention the most has been me pointing out how the Book of Mormon Jesus slaughtered millions of people in America immediately after completing his great work of love salvation and rescue.

She actually acknowledged how silly and ridiculous it was to impugn such motivations and pettiness to the Same Jesus Who had come into the world, according to her story, not to condemn it but to save it.

She was so used to hearing the story that I think it was very surprising to her to realize fully what it was actually saying.

Jesus. Killing. Millions. He gives his life for mankind then goes on a rampage that makes Godzilla look discriminating in comparison. It's so stupid it makes my hair hurt.

If Joseph Smith wrote the BoM today he would have Jesus and the prophets as MMA champions or Kung Fu heroes instead of swordsman, but it would be no more ludicrous.

3rd Nephi.

Earthquakes, fires, tornadoes, etc. killed everyone but the most righteous.

"And the earth was carried up upon the city of Moronihah 《hahaha, what?》 that in the place of the city there became a great mountain."

Verse 13: Joe liked Isaiah, sure nuff.

Wordy, and wordy, and wordy - where is my blue pencil??.

verse 19, clearly he was making it up as he went along.

Jesus Christ, get ON with it, man! How do mormons stand it? This is terrible. Yeah, there was no light, we get it, now move ON before I throttle you, Joe!

Correction:

Imaginary deities such as mormon Jesus cannot explain their actions to apostates (or anyone else for that matter)!
