Mormonism Exposed #8-Does The Mormon Hierarchy Really Need Your Gold Dental Work & Bridges To Build Temples?!!
Apostle Brigham Young, Jr. temporarily resigns as vice-president of Brigham Young Trust Company because first counselor George Q. Cannon allows its property to become “a first class” brothel on Commercial Street (now Regent Street), Salt Lake City. Apostle Heber J. Grant is invited to its opening reception and is stunned to discover himself inside “a regular whore-house.” This situation begins in 1891, and for fifty years church controlled real estate companies lease houses of prostitution.(HOLY SHIT!!)
There are many other amazing facts on that history page and another couple of favorites of mine are:
Mar 2,1904 – Before committee of U.S. Senate, Joseph F. Smith testifies: “I have never pretended to nor do I profess to have received revelations. I never said that I had a revelation except so far as God has shown me that so-called Mormonism is God’s divine truth, that is all.”(Further proof of the MORmON fraud!!)
Apr 14,1904 – First Presidency and apostles decide to resume sale of liquor at church resort of Saltair due to need for non-Mormon patronage.(Just like they’re going to be selling booze in their current BILLION DOLLAR malls, in order to draw traffic and “create a vibrant nightlife downtown.” The church spokesman Bill Dales honestly admitted in a radio interview “that it was always their goal to serve wine.” The more things change, the more they stay the same eh!!)
James E. Faust’s HORRIFIC quotes from the OFFICIAL MORmON CHURCH NEWS:
He emphasized the need for Saints all over the world to begin to sacrifice for temple building. He recalled how, when the Sao Paulo Temple was being built, members in Argentina found ways to donate.
They gave the gold from their dental work to help pay on the temple, said President Faust. He explained that he had purchased some of that gold, for more than the market price, and has shown the gold fillings to various congregations to illustrate the nature of the sacrifice made by these members.
This sacrifice has been the hallmark of the success of members in the Latin American nations, he noted, indicating that the same principle of sacrifice is needed today, where members in one area can reach out to help those in other areas.
It was also a period of tremendous sacrifice for many on that continent. Many donated “precious possessions” for the Church to sell and use the cash to help build the Sao Paulo Brazil Temple. President Faust told of a faithful Argentine member who had a gold dental bridge extracted to help raise money for a temple in a foreign country, Brazil.
Daniel L. Johnson’s “The Law Of Tithing” talk from the October 2006 General Conference:
“There are many reasons that are used to not pay tithing, such as medical emergencies, debts, car or home repairs, educational expenses, and insurance. These reasons and others like them are very real and are lived and dealt with every day by many, if not most, of us. These tax our limited financial resources and, if we are not wise stewards of these resources, may result in the inability to meet our tithing obligation to the Lord.”
He then says:
“A lack of compliance with this eternal law is not to be taken lightly and can not only seriously impair our spiritual growth and development, but it can also limit the physical and temporal blessings that we could otherwise enjoy.”
Those windows of heaven are up there folks. The “Loving God” has his hand on the lever and wants to open them so badly, but just can’t, unless you are a MORmON, paying your FULL tithing. If you aren’t, he will withhold blessings from you in every way he can, to punish you for your disobedience…what a crock of shit eh?!! “LOVING FATHER?!!”
THREATS and FEAR is how they rule!!
Daniel then says:
As President Spencer W. Kimball once said: “The Lord herein makes clear that tithing is his law and is required of all his followers. It is our honor and privilege, our safety and promise, our great blessing to live this law of God. To fail to meet this obligation in full is to deny ourselves the promises and is to omit a weighty matter. It is a transgression, not an inconsequential oversight.”
So, there it is, in the words of the great MORmON Prophet and sicko pervert Spencer whack-off KimBALLS; “it is a TRANSGRESSION to not pay tithing, not an inconsequential oversight.”

What a douchebag this Daniel L. Johnson is eh? Is this asshole actually proud to stand up there and spew this bullshit? He is a disgrace!! I wonder if his friends and family were proud of him…of course they were because they’re probably all brainwashed MORGBOTS!!
Here is a link to my blog post entitled “Mormon’s Say That Even The Destitute Have To Pay Their Tithing!!”, where I quote, link to and list the embarrassing and horrific talks by Lynn G. Robbins and Earl C. Tingey, who were the DESIGNATED TITHING ASSHOLES for their particular General Conference. Sadly, they proudly delivered those talks!!
These men barely qualify to be called human…I call them HUMAN TRASH!!
Here is the link to Gordon B. Hinckley’s interview with the German reporter, where he lies his ass off about who gets to see how much money they bring in and what it is spent on, claiming that the tithe payers get to see it. He also lies or gives embarrassing answers to other questions.
Here is a link to Ezra Taft Benson’s 14 fundamentals talk, in which he says the following:
Fourth: The prophet will never lead the Church astray.
President Marion G. Romney tells of this incident which happened to him:
“I remember years ago when I was a bishop I had President Heber J. Grant talk to our ward. After the meeting I drove him home … Standing by me, he put his arm over my shoulder and said: ‘My boy, you always keep your eye on the President of the Church and if he ever tells you to do anything, and it is wrong, and you do it, the Lord will bless you for it.’ Then with a twinkle in his eye, he said, ‘But you don’t need to worry. The Lord will never let his mouthpiece lead the people astray.’ ” (Conference Report, October 1960, p. 78.)
Sixth: The prophet does not have to say “Thus saith the Lord” to give us scripture.
Fourteenth: The prophet and the presidency—the living prophet and the First Presidency—follow them and be blessed—reject them and suffer.
I suggest that you all read the entire talk!!
Here is what this Bishop said to his congregation(this links to a blog post that I wrote in October of 2005 regarding this jerk off), according to a missionary who was there and proud of the Bishop; when he said they’d have a cursing come down upon them if they didn’t start doing missionary work:
“Sunday was crazy we had our stake meeting with Lenexa stake at 7:00 am. We then went straight to church at 9:00. It was ward conference and Bishop Stephenson talked on some things that the ward needs to work on. The last thing that he spoke of was missionary work. HE said that the Lord is not pleased with the lack of missionary work that the members are doing. HE said that the Lord is withholding blessings and that if they did not start doing their missionary work that the Lord would bring down a cursing upon them. I think that I was the first time that I have heard a bishop or anyone in church prophesy. We then had meetings until 4:00.”
I previously held back this ASSHOLE Bishop’s name until February of this year…but I’ve now released it to the world for all to know…again BISHOP STEPHENSON from the Lenexa, Kansas stake…spread the word about what this man said and did…he’s a disgrace.
Here is a link to Hinckley’s “condition of the church” talk where he said:
Faith in the payment of tithes and offerings increases despite the straitened economic circumstances in which we find ourselves. We are able to go forward with the building of meetinghouses and temples, with our vast education program, with the very many activities which are conditioned upon the tithing income of the Church. I promise you that we will not put the Church in debt. We will strictly tailor the program to the tithing income and use these sacred funds for the purposes designated by the Lord.
I call attention to that which has received much notice in the local press. This is our decision to purchase the shopping mall property immediately to the south of Temple Square.
We feel we have a compelling responsibility to protect the environment of the Salt Lake Temple. The Church owns most of the ground on which this mall stands. The owners of the buildings have expressed a desire to sell. The property needs very extensive and expensive renovation. We have felt it imperative to do something to revitalize this area. But I wish to give the entire Church the assurance that tithing funds have not and will not be used to acquire this property. Nor will they be used in developing it for commercial purposes.
Funds for this have come and will come from those commercial entities owned by the Church. These resources, together with the earnings of invested reserve funds, will accommodate this program.
Here is a link to the text, audio and video of the above Hinckley speech.
Here is a link to the article in The Church News where they talk about consolidating missions “TO AID GROWTH.” WTF?!!
They must think that EVERYONE reading The Church News is dumb as a box of rocks and if they actually believe that headline…THEY ARE!! THINK ABOUT IT FOR ONE SECOND!!
If growth is really the problem, they’d be increasing the number of missions and missionaries, not shutting down missions and merging them with other missions…it’s a NO BRAINER, if you have a brain!!
Finally, here is the link to John Dehlin’s podcast regarding his mission in Guatemala and all of the bullshit that he had to suffer through, for simply wanting to do what was right and true, thinking that that was what his leaders would want…LOL!!(I experienced the SAME, EXACT things on my mission!!) John then had a wake up call the size of the Grand Canyon, but unfortunately, not a big enough one, as he now regrets recording any podcasts he did that weren’t “FAITH PROMOTING”(a la Disneyworld fantasy), as he believes that the FAIRY TALES and bullshit of MORmONISM, are more important than the truth. He didn’t feel that way before.
As he recently stated in an interview and I paraphrase him..”When I was away from the church for that year, I was in darkness and when I came back…the light came back on and has stayed on ever since.” WOW…if the church is light to him…he must have been in a very dark place that only exists in his mind and I can’t understand what darkness would be to him?!!
The only reason he re-posted his podcasts like this one, at all, was because he screwed himself and released them all as FAIR-USE and someone else was going to post them anyway, without his permission…so he thought that he might as well re-post them and be in charge of them and have the control. For those that are interested, I’ll find and post the link of the entire conversation/fight that he had on a chat board regarding this issue and it got very NASTY, with threats of Lawyers, etc!!
Here is a direct link to the download to the podcast.
Well guys, that’s a lot of info to digest and I believe I have listed everything I promised in the podcast, but if I missed something…PLEASE let me know and I’ll post it!!
Here’s the great video I had posted in my comment below…for some reason it disappeared:
Take care everyone and I hope you enjoy the podcast,
