WARNING: MOST OF THIS IS SATIRE.
I don't think the Mormon Church condones torture, I just think they don't not condone torture.
Mormon Church: "We hate this kind of love".While the world watches a bloody and unjust war in Iraq, mass genocide throughout Africa, and a sudden fiery debate over illegal immigration, Gay people (with a capital "G") are still trying to get married. Yes, that's right. Gay people (human beings of the same sex who love each other) are still trying to have legal marital ceremonies to prove their responsiblity to each other and to society. And the media, with all their attention turned to the WAR and to GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION, have completely ignored the PEOPLE WHO LOVE EACH OTHER GETTING MARRIED controversy.
Ok, enough satire. Whatever.
The Mormon Church this week bravely stepped up to the plate and read an Anti-Gay clause from thousands of church pulpits nationwide. They are 1 of 49 other religious organizations that support bans on Gay Marriage and an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America. This endeavor is, of course, a high priority among this nation's idiots and nincompoops. Dullards have also become quite involved.
All this comes 6 months after the Mormon Church REFUSED to sign and support a letter SAYING THAT TORTURE TO ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS BAD. 46 other religious organizations nationwide got together, thought about it, and then decided to voice their non-denominational religious opinion that torture (such as that at Abu Gharib prison) might be against the teachings of Jesus Christ, etc. But the Mormon Church said, "The church has not taken a position on any proposed legislative or administrative actions regarding torture." They continued, "We're still thinking about it. I mean, torture, gosh that's quite a grey area".
So, here is the Mormon Church's current position on Gays and Torture (Gay people into S&M not included):
This is OK. Even though it is our hope and prayer that the man punching the living shit out of the naked Arabs eventually finds Jesus and pays us tithing.
This is also OK. Unless that blood is from the anus of a gay man who had too much homosexual sex and didn't know when to stop so he bled a lot. Only then would angels weep.
OK, we ARE against this. This kind of debauchery will not stand. Seeing that man's penis both confuses and infuriates us.
