The comments section for the Business Week article is fun to read. Full of smug, self-righteous comments from Mormons. Here's my favorite so far:


"All you bashers of the Mormon Faith need to take a good look at yourselves and see who is really directing your thoughts and words because it surely does not come from heaven. The Mormons are some of the best people on this earth, we help everyone from our neighbors to disaster victims, Mormons and non Mormons alike. You will not find a people more dedicated to family and service than us. It seems to me that the life we lead is to difficult for so many, so you must find fault with it, because you can't or don't want to do it. Gotta have that drink or cigarette or that mister or mistress Sin is so much more fun than living a Christ Like Life but will get you nowhere."

It just pisses me off how Mormons have been brainwashed in to believing that they hold a monopoly on humitarian aid, charitable donation, and family values.

"..we help everyone from our neighbors to disaster victims, Mormons and non Mormons alike."

Do you think they could provide a few unbiased sources?

The first ten comments in the reader's section below the article are from mormons. They are spitting mad. They are irrational. They are in "I drank the kool aid" style. Mormons are flooding the comments with a combination of propaganda and "How dare you!"

This is the ugliest part of mormonism. If you disagree with them, or challenge anything about them, or just question something that does not add up, it MUST be because you want

A DRINK, A CIGARETTE, AND TO COMMIT ADULTERY. You could only question them if SATAN has you firmly in his grasp.

Poor persecuted boobs.

"People can only be living in sin and ignorance if they don't live the teachings of the Church." Riiiiight.

This article came up in conversation with a never-mo today. He brought it up! He thought it was a great article. Everyone else knows those apologist reactions are ridiculous and just makes TSCC sound more cult-like. Whatever. Yay for business week being ballsy!

The comments by TBMs are a good example how cults make chumps out of people.

Who else would give unquestioning obedience to an outfit that refuses to disclose even its most basic money transactions?

And to top it off, TBMs then turn around and attack the people who point out the abuse,

There are anti-Mormons who are hired to comment negatively about the church on news articles. Who are you and how much does it pay?

;)

"It is always interesting to see the hired, daily anti-Mormons dishonestly maligning..."

Enough of providing free services. I think I should find out who pays for that.

If I might simplify the smug Mormon comment...

blahblahblah we are better than you blahblahblah we are waaaay better than you blahblahblah we are humble servants of heaven who are soooo much better than you blahblahblah.

I hope the TBM die-hards keep commenting because their off-the-mark tunnel-vision sounds just like the Scientologist die-hard comments on any article about Scientology's role in the Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise divorce. To the unwashed masses, brainwashed Mormon sheeple sound as loony as brainwashed Scientology sheeple. Baaaaa on, TBM's. Baaaaa on.

but when Mormons do the "A" thing, the "CA" thing...
those are all 'matters of perception', aren't they?

That comment sums up Mormon delusion so concisely it's incredible. It's as though the PR dept wrote it.

Perhaps the TBMs can point out which facts presented in the article are untrue.

They never let facts get in the way of a good story, Summer, especially their favorite storyline, "Poor, poor, persecuted us!"

If church members want to delude themselves, that's fine. However, I object to them recruiting new members with lies. If the church has nothing to hide, then let them open their books for all to see.
