Mormon Changes? October 8, 2012Posted by Ubi Dubium in Rants.

I saw a link that said “Mormon Church announces big changes”. I was thinking “Big changes? Maybe women will be allowed in the church hierarchy now? Or maybe they have reversed their position on gay marriage? What could these big changes be?”
But of course this was HuffPo. So when I followed the link, I found this http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/07/lds-general-conference-mormon-missionaries-new-temples_n_1945848.html
The big change? More missionaries and more temples. Yippee. They are taking their kids into the total control and brainwashing of their “missions” even earlier, when they are even less equipped to think anything out for themselves. And they are going to funnel even more of their wads of money into building big pointy houses to honor their egos. Instead of, say, housing the homeless, or feeding the hungry, or anything useful like that.
So I’d revise the headline to be “Mormon church makes big announcement: We are going to keep on doing exactly what we’ve been doing before, but now we’re going to throw MORE MONEY at it!!!”
