    Continue to discuss if you like.

    I am not trying to start trouble, I just want to clarify for those that seemed to be so incredibly offended by my comments on the other thread. I was NOT calling any non Mormon untrustworthy or dishonest. Being a Mormon myself, I know my high moral standards will be the same as those of the same religion. I choose to do my business dealings of imortance will other Mormons for that simple fact as appose to people I know nothing at all about. I know many Mormons feel that same way. If this makes me a bad person, as I am sure it does not, so be it. I am free to protect myself in this way if I choose. Any discussion on this subject is welcome by me, I never meant to hurt anyones feelings.

    Please do not close this thread. This is a serious attempt at an adult discussion for those that want to take part.

    So Jesus would oppose (I assume you are just saying that word with an accent) people that he knows nothing about? How is that Christian?

    Nope, not at all. That's just how I feel comfortable doing things in such a big city. I do plenty of business with non Mormons as well.

    I guess then that you just make controversial statements without having meaning behind them - such as this one.

    Because apparently no one else can have high morals.

    Maybe this is why you get yourself in these situations....

    How does saying that Mormons have high moral standards mean that no one else does. That simply means I know MINE and those of other Mormons.

    You're free to use any criteria you like for chosing with whom you do business, become friends, invite to your home or into your life. My mother's family is Mormon and they are very much 'stick to what you know' type folks, so I'm used to that point of view and it doesn't bother me a bit. There are those who won't like it and will give you fits for it, but if you said, "I chose to do business only with those who have been in business for 30 plus years." they'd be raising Cain with you for that. Ignore them all and go play with your horse(s). Those who want to dictate how you should live your life properly (only they know what properly is, of course) are not worth your time.

    Thank you for understanding dreamcatcher. I do like a good discussion every once in a while, though.

    Religious threads don't usually last long because it's such a passionate subject for a lot of people... just saying!

    That's why the other thread was closed, because so many people took offense to what I said, and that's why I felt it was necessary to clarify things. But, as you can see, people didn't care as much as I thought they did.

    Sorry, but no, you don't. You know the teachings of your church - you do not know the morals of other Mormons. It does not take much research to find lots of Mormons who have committed crimes, including sexual abuse or immoral acts, just as with followers of any religion.

    You also make the assumption that you and the LDS church have the highest of morals. Do you think prejudice is moral? For younger readers, you might want to glance at a review of the following link to understand the prejudice of the Mormon church until very recently.

    Black people and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I don't bring this up to be critical - hopefully this is all in the past. I bring it up merely to point out that the Mormon church is no different than any other church in that it defines morals by its own subjective standards and not from a universally accepted human rights perspective, and it is just as subject to criticism as any other church. I could post all kinds of links about child molestation, and other moral crimes committed by Mormons, but that is not the point. The point is that Mormons are no different than anyone else - there are tall ones and short ones, fat ones and skinny ones, and moral ones and immoral ones...
