Check out these comments I got today... good fun.

I'm sorry, I wasn't sure whether I should call you Andee or Sydney. My mistake. :)

As for proving that the Mormon Church is true.....I can't prove it any more than I can prove that you actually have a brain. Can you see it, can you hear it, can you feel it, can you touch it, can you taste it? No, you can't, therefore you can't prove that you have a brain. I don't have any more proof that you actually have a brain than you have proof that the Church is not true. It seems to me that you resent the Church for some reason and find every possible way that you can think of to tear it down, yet you cannot. I am STILL waiting for actual proof that it isn't true.

I can prove I have a brain. I can go to the hospital and get a cat scan. Pretty damn simple.

Man, you really just dont get it! I feel soo sorry for you, because in the end you are the one whose going to be suffering from all your sins. Thats what the devil does to you. He makes you believe that wrong is right. That the inteligence you believe to have is all that you need. I will pray for you to repent sooner than later, so you wont find yourself in the presence of god wishing that mountains would cover you because you cant stand his presence. I don't know what made you not want to be a member of the church, but whatever it was, its not worth it. Open your eyes! Don't let the devil make you more miserable than you already are. Don't forget thats his goal on earth. To make everyone miserable like him.

Yeah, *I* am the one who doesn't get it. Oh, and I can actually spell intelligence. It's called spell check, and if you want to pretend as if you are smart, you should use it. It might just make your argument a slight bit more compelling... then again, maybe not.

I find it fascinating that you take the time to dedicate such a strong portion of your life to this endeavor of showing the lies of the mormon church. I have been lied to many times by many people and organizations...but my typical reaction is to walk away. I find that there is no solace in proving to others that they are wrong about anything. As you read through the posts above how many people do you feel will have changed their minds?

And what value is it to you if they did? Have you rescued someone by showing that they have been living an lie? They wake in the morning and go about their daily lives believing and living (according to you) a lie...so what? many of them are happy in doing so. Why does it become your person duty or obligation to inform of it? and in the end to what net benefit of humanity is it that you do so? I'm not saying that you don't have the right...but I must confess that I am at a loss as to the why.

BTW, you have indicated that you have not lied...but that is not true either.

For example in one response to brother zip you make the statement that you must pay 10% of everything. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has no such requirement. It is 10% of your increase.

You make the statement that Joseph Smith got the temple endowment from the Mason's and then imply that it is therefore not from God. But this (to use 8 hours lunch's terminology) is a Fallacy of False Cause.

You say that the church teaches that Joseph Smith sat with plates open but that this is not true that he peers into a hat. What you don't state is that both are true. Furthermore, your implication is that by looking into a hat Joseph could not have been a prophet nor have translated the book. To which I say poppycock, no such implication is true. It is just as possible that Joseph is both a prophet and translated the book by looking into a hat as by any other means.

You also state that church lied to you by showing that picture.

What I must confess to enjoying the most (and you will have to forgive my arrogance here but I just can't not type this) Is that is seems to be perfectly okay of eighthour, Dutch and yourself to make fun of those who profess believe in the church but at that same time condemn a members who's post is not polite.

I also find that many of your statements are rather amusing.
"less than 1% of world is Mormon."
and your point is? At one point in time the Membership of the church was 6 people. If truth is based on percentage the Roman Catholic church is true and we should all join today.

Simply put, if proving that your church was true was...then you would have a ...lot more members...

I see. The part of actually getting people to READ the book and then to PRAY to God about it...that part is really easy. BTW, you also left of the part about "remember how merciful the Lord hath been to the children of men", about "pondering it in your heart", and about "asking with real intent."


Thank you for an enjoying read and may you find peace in your life...though as I mentioned above, I cannot fathom how this site will help you do so.


Wow, dude... the things you must have to tell yourself to keep the church true in your head must give you a killer headache. Whatevs....

    I laughed and laughed and laughed at that first comment. The other two were pretty funny too, but that "you can't taste your brain, therefore the church is true" bit was just amazing.

    You can't make that stuff up.

    Wow. really? The dude doesn't even know his own religion. I know several high ranking Masons who are not morman and they can all repeat the endowment ceremony pratically verbatim. They even have special names! Why do these people assume you dont know anything about mormonism? We were all mormon once, which is why we are driven to read your blog.

    And yes, you do help. You help people feel more comfortable leaving a cult. You give support and understanding.

    And why if he is such a strong believer is he taking time to read what he believes to be anti-mormon? which no I dont think you are. Maybe he forgot to listen that the church doesn't allow people to read "anti-mormon" literature (sp?)


    Keep on writing Andee!

    Hehe, can you guys believe these people? What *I* can't believe is that I used to be one of them. What the hell was I thinking?

    Oh, I wasn't thinking... was I?

    Ugh.

    Thanks for the kind words, as always, you are very kind.

    Oh, and that first one made me laugh... really, really hard.

    I am with you on that one Craig... she doesn't have a clue.

    i cant believe i used to be an active molly mormon. these mormon commenters are so far gone, they can't see past their own brainwashed selves. i feel sorry for them. mormonism is like north korea - they are blocked from all knowledge and facts about themselves, and all they hear it's what's dictated/interpreted by their leader.

    thank god i left the church this year (over prop 8!), and thank god your blog exists.

    Thank you for the compliment on the blog, that's really cool of you :)
