Mormons might be ANTI-gay… but does anyone know, are they still PRO-magical underwear?

Mormons don't consider their underwear any more magical than say one might a hairshirt.

I think they're typically described as being sacred the same way other clergies' vestments are. "Magic" is probably not the right word.

Yes, all sorts of various religions have their own cultural quirks. So what. How does Mormon-bashing help win over moderates for supporting gay rights? I suppose this post is more nuanced than the "Fuck Mormons" sign in San Francisco. Cheers to 21st century tolerance!

I don't know, when I wear my Marks & Spencer boxer briefs, I can levitate shit...

If they'd be more accommodating to the gheys, I'm sure we could find them something more stylish and comfortable.

Um, their precious beliefs are fucking ridiculous, and they are willing to try to make them into LAW. When you believe something ridiculous, and then go so far as to try to impose it on other people, you'd best prepare to be mocked.

You know, The Gays aren't trying to make the Mormons marry gays (any more than they already do). We're just trying to get them to leave us alone. If they will fuck off, we will go back to ignoring them. Happily.

@3 they do claim they have effected outcomes of events.

We don't use the word "magic", but we do believe they protect us from harm-- mostly mataphorically, but occasionally physically as well.

Such silly shit - god oh god - the Mormon garment is a version of long underwear which was very common in the 1850's.

REMEMBER all you history twits, NO central heating, may deaths from simple flu, colds, pneumonia.

The garment has legend attached to it - so what.

It most likely gave Mormons a longer life span just because of keeping warmer and better clothed in those old drafty cold times.

Duh. And having had a Mormon boyfriend, the nylon version is very silky, slinky and sexy. Duh.

But that button still rides a little high in the butt flap.

Fact. the biggest enemy of the gay community around the word, and the fucking BIGGEST church are Catholics.

By comparison, Mormons are nothing.

All you lapsed Catholics need to get a grip, does any lapsed Catholic posting here think the present Pope is gay friendly?? He is the worst homophobe on the planet, with amazing influence to make it stick.

Let's be at least objective. If Mormons had been our only enemy in California, we would have won the vote, they are only 2 per cent of the population. Geez. To have been so lucky.

Hah. Said button is always cut off.

I hate repeating myself, but Mormons are moronic turds. Wait, I actually enjoyed repeating that.

Posted by Vince | November 11, 2008 3:13 PM

#15 Such an elegant informed post - and whose turd are you thinking a lot about?

And the homophobe Pope who controls half the population of the world. Nice guy?

I don't like any of the ten major churches that fight us all the time - and it is a gret PR tactic to call them turds .... sure.

Posted by Art | November 11, 2008 3:25 PM

hey, so we all are trying to run a campaign against mormons I hear. How bout jamming there "chat line"

I found on of all places

Posted by Joseph Peila | November 11, 2008 3:48 PM

@16 You want respect? Try not using your religion as an excuse to deny others their rights. People who do that are disgusting. Turds are disgusting. ergo...
