Well, I knew posting the cartoon video of that certain take on Mormonism would spark something. Luckily I haven't received death threats, but I did want to do a bit more research.
Here's a 9-minute video on one man's experience with being gay in the Mormon church.
It's heartbreaking, I know. And having had first-hand experience with this (my Mormon father was gay), I know this to be fact. Homosexuality is perhaps the highest on the list of intolerable things for the Mormon church, and if they can't be "cured", then they are usually excommunicated (which is what happened to my father, although he never actually admitted he was gay, even to his family).
The cartoon video from the previous post certainly has a negative spin, but I don't think they said anything that was not true. (Granted, I have not been an "active member" of the church since I was 14, when my bio-dad passed away. But he was extremely devout, some might say fanatic, and so a lot was crammed into my head those first 14 years.)
Mormons do believe in polygamist gods, with their goddess wives, that live throughout the universe. Mormons do believe that the Lamanites were "cursed" with black skin, and the Nephites were "blessed" with white. Mormons do believe that Jesus was a polygamist while here on earth, and that Joseph Smith was one of his direct descendants. I have been to the place where Mormons say Joseph Smith saw God and Jesus, called The Sacred Grove.
Ok, here's another video, this time discussing certain rituals that take place in a Mormon temple. It is a negative spin video, but IT IS ENTIRELY ACCURATE. My mother (a Mormon her whole life until she divorced my father when she was 28) has described this to me many times before I ever saw the video. It is an endowment ceremony, and only married people and other adults are allowed to be involved. Baptisms for the dead are another thing, but I did those when I was 14, so I know that is totally accurate. *Deep breath* Here we go:
Talk amongst yourselves.
