This popped up earlier today on my Facebook feed. This is sad (but hilarious:) on so many levels.

"my daughter (who is under the age of ten) came up to me while I was in bed tapped me on the shoulder and asked if Obama won. I told her yes and she started to cry, I grabbed her and hugged her and told her family is all that matters and that we stick together and spiritually prepare for the second coming, its just around the corner, my mom told us to read helaman chapter 7 verse 4-6 its amazing how close we are!!! Food storage, clothing and shelter forget about all this worldly stuff and smile :)"


"My kids could not believe it either! I told them that its part of Heavenly Fathers plan, we may not understand but his plan is the best and we need to make sure we are doing what is right and staying close to him. Helaman has some great insight to our time and it is amazing! Fear not and be of good cheer, all will be well!"

I thought my TBM's were Froot Loops - I think you are going to win the prize if we have a crazy TBM/FB contest though.

I would be fine letting the Monsoon keep all the assets if he'd just instruct them that now was the time to drink the Kool-Aid.

Never did it enter the parent's skull that the kid wanted Romney to win so their "otherness" would be more mainstream?

Kind of like a Jewish kid wishing for chanukkah episodes instead of just xmas ones, etc?

Please people, post Facebook stuff, it all seemed to get pulled last night and it sounds like it was some crazy entertaining stuff.

Besides, as that child gets older and the second coming doesn't come, what will he or she think about religion and mormonism?

Yeah, I'm really sorry for the kids. That their parents are putting these fantasy fears on their kids... Grr!
My parents terrorized me with that world is going to end crap too! Over presidents, laws passed, etc. I know how it feels!

Little kids shouldn't be crying over politics. Their parents should be ashamed of causing this distress, but I'm sure that like mine, they delight in their twisted little "shaping the minds of the future".

Might as well just say:

"Nothing makes sense in this life dear. As long as we have faith, nothing will ever make sense. Never ever. We will live out our lives confused as fuck. That's why it's so special."

AWESOME.. I'm addicted to these crazy TBM responses! Even as a TBM I'd be laughing at these.

here's one:

When the voice of the people choose evil...... ripe for destruction I believe are the words. Sad, but happy, it moves us along towards the 2nd coming, there's the silver lining

I just read a long thread by a guy I went to high school with. I had no idea he was LDS until he friended me... This is partly what he posted. There was also quite a spat going on about abortion... It boggles the mind.

Who will get my vote??

*I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood - Proverbs 6:17.

*I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who don't -Genesis 12:3

*I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender
- Proverbs 22:7.

*I will vote for the most pro-work candidate, because God says if a man does not work, let him not eat - 2 Thessalonians 3:10.

*I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in - Genesis 2:24.

*I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes governments purpose is to reward the good and punish the evil - Romans 13.

*I will vote based as closely as I can on Gods word - 2 Timothy 3:16

Knowing whoever gets elected, God is the One who puts all men in authority - Daniel 2:21

Oh come on. The Mormon Mall of America just opened. Monson says it was planned to last 100 years. Mormons are using their treasure to build malls not convincing the last of their lost brothers and sisters to repent before the "imminent" second coming. Tell them to relax, it's not happening anytime soon.

That sounds like child abuse to me. I'm sorry but a little kid shouldn't care who wins the election and shouldn't be scared for the end of the world.

Nice job indoctrinating your child, Mormons.

TBMs on Facebook have gone batshit crazy. References to emergency prepardness, armageddon, the anti-christ, and the second coming are exploding. There are many posts that left me shaking my head, like these gems:

"[TBM husband] and I have been talking this last week while reading scriptures about how much this election reminds us of the Lamanites and Nephites. There was always hope in the scriptures. Don't lose hope. I truly believe that if God needed Romney to win as part of His plan, it would happen. I wonder how the Emergency Preparedness turnout will be on Saturday??"

"Obama supports everything Christ taught against... lying, stealing, murder of ambassadors AND babies,control, power...you know, his norm!"

"This country is full of idiots and uneducated morons. Anyone with even a simple grasp of history will see that tonite this country re-elected someone who has disdain for our country and who strives to lower us to the standards of the rest of the world. No offense to the 'rest of the world,' but you are pathetic. We are AMERICANS, and we refuse to lower our standards because a segment of society refuses to contribute to society. Read a history book, liberals."

I'm proud of how closed-mouthed I have been around my TBM son-in-law--but sometimes, I can't resist. He is a huge Romney fan, and has been telling my granddaughter all about it. When my granddaughter asked who won the election, I said, "The man who was President of the United States before, won, again." She seemed happy about that, and my SIL just scowled.

Okay...the way I see it, is that when losers tell the winners that they are all going to BURN in the Second Coming...that is beyond being sore losers!

When Mormons say they are praying for Obama and all the leaders, they are saying that Mormon prayers are all they have going for them. People are admonished to have group prayer, after everything else has failed.

There is nothing concessional, kindly, or well-meaning behind these responses. That little Mormon girl is being taught to fear and hate "others," and to stick close to the Mormons and prepare for the second coming, when only they, the chosen elite will be saved. I can't think of anything nastier.

What's the point of the church spending $4 billion on "revitalizing" downtown and building a mall when its all going to poop tomorrow? Seems the Profit should have spent that money on food storage and shelters for the LDS faithful instead.

Everyone keeps talking about how gracious Romney's concession speech was, but I am not sure that's what that was, at all.

He wrote a 1000+ word acceptance speech which he began working on days before, but apparently had no concession speech in the works at all?

I also do not like people who are so unChristian, that they say they will pray for me or my choice, not kindly or sweetly or with good intent, but desperately and snarkily and almost as a threat, as if I am the dregs and so is my guy and boy, are we both gonna need it. Because obviously, we have nothing else at all to cling to, but satan.

[TBM] posted this:

"If the American people are stupid and evil enough to re-elect the devil I guess they will get what they deserve. This might be a good time for Christ to begin the cleansing of His earth."

Another gem:
"But in the end live rightously and we will be blessed. hold you heads high for we have the truth and we have the great opportunity to share it with the world thanks to Romney's presence it the Media."

Another Romneyite referred to the victor as "Obeyme."

Where do they come up with this stuff?

If they are moving to get away from gay marriage, moving to Canada would not be the place to go. Canada has gay marriage nationally.

My BIL sent an email to the whole family stating that the end is nigh, everyone needs to go to the temple, build up their food storage and pray, pay and obey. I had no idea having a black man in office was a sign of the end of days. I think these people have read too much Bruce McConkie and Brigham Young.

Even though Nixon presided over the worst fuel and gasoline supply emergency ever seen in the US. Even though Nixon paid burglars to steal documents from his political opponents. Nixon tried to institute wage and price controls by the federal gov't. And he kept a "hate list" of citizens who disagreed with his policies.

Nixon's administration unraveled faster than he could cut and splice around the embarrassing parts of his audio tapes. Still, he had to be better than some liberal alternative, said my father.
Bollocks, says I.
