You know you’re in a cult when

11/19/2008 – by Cultivator at Recovery from Mormonism– you buy a bag of coffee and are afraid you get caught

– you have to burn the markings of your underwear before disposing them

– certain parents can’t attend the weddings of their own children

– people look at you like you’re the Antichrist when you show a shoulder

– you have to pay tons of money no matter how broke or sick you are

– only you and your tiny little group goes to the highest heaven and the
other 99.98% don’t

– you have to work for free 10-20 hours a week

– everybody’s broke but ‘headquarters’ builds a 2 billion Dollar mall

– they don’t release financial information

– no credible scientist outside your group believes in huge Nephite, Lamanite
or Etherite civilizations where 2 million died in battles

– you don’t attend church for only a few weeks and ‘concerned’ people visit
you unannounced.

– you can end up in church court because you shared non approved literature /
websites with your fellow members

– you have to answer intimate questions about your sex life

Isn’t that proof enough ?

The Mormon Cult

11/19/2008 – by Charles L. Wood, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor, The
University of Akron – submitted by Tim RathboneMormonism Is a dangerous, family-splitting religion spreading throughout the
world. The purpose of this website is to give you the scientific and factual
information you need to evaluate this religion. With this information you will
save yourself many years of heartbreak and deception or help a loved one or
friend get loose of the dangerous grip that The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter
Day Saints has on innocent people through fear and intimidation.

Cult members of the Mormon/Latter-Day Saints religion are manipulated through
fear and guilt.

This Mormon/Latter-Day Saints cult produces fear in their members because if
they don?t practice church doctrine faithfully, they believe they will fail to
reach the highest levels of heaven and fear that if they don?t wear their
garments, they will not be protected by God.

Mormon church cult proselytizing functions at three levels:

1) marketing strategy,

2) missionary lessons, and

3) use of friendshipping families.

Seventy-five million dollars was earmarked by Bonneville International, the
Mormon church’s powerful communications branch, for satellite dishes in Canada
and Mexico. The Mormon Church set a similar goal for South America, Europe,
Asia, and the Philippines. The Mormon church’s satellite is the largest video
network in the world, having the ability to merge into any cable system in North
America….it spends approximately $550 million a year.

In addition, the LDS cult has been cosmitized, that is a sacred canopy has
been developed. The following explains what cults like the Mormon church must do
to establish this sacred canopy:

1. claim contact with heaven or the cosmos

2. claim God has chosen a leader as His divinely chosen representative

3. give royal or divine status to the leader(s)

4. insist their society mirrors the divine structure of heaven

5. build temples to practice sacred ordinances

6. produce ‘sacred’ literature

Cult Characteristics of the Mormon Church:

1. Teaching that the doctrine of the Mormon Church is reality, the doctrine
is to be accepted, not understood.

2. Reality is black and white, good and evil, spiritual world versus physical
word. (As an example: “the Mormon Church cult is the only true church on the
face of the earth”.)

3. Mormon Church members are taught to feel part of an elite group: following
and accepting church doctrine insures members eternal life and a delightful life
in heaven.

4. Mormon Church members are manipulated through fear and guilt, fear that if
they don?t practice church doctrine faithfully that they will fail to reach the
highest levels of heaven, fear that if they don?t wear their garments, that they
will not be protected by God.

5. Mormon Church members are taught that any problems that they may have are
due to their own inadequacies. If they are having marital, financial or other
difficult problems, it is because they are not following Church doctrine, or are
not praying enough. Guilt, fear and shame are present in the minds of Mormons if
they are not loyal and fail to follow the church doctrine.

6. Unlike non-cult organizations, Mormon Church members find it difficult to
leave when they find out that church teachings are false or otherwise become
disenchanted with the church. They believe that terrible things will happen to
them and their family if they leave. This becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy
because those who do leave actually often do lose their family, friends and
other social contacts within the Mormon community

Some of the Most Blasphemous and Damnable Mormon Doctrines

Some of the Most Blasphemous and Damnable
Mormon Doctrines

  1. “We believe in a God who is
    Himself progressive
    , whose majesty is intelligence; whose perfection
    consists in eternal advancement — a Being who has attained
    His exalted state by a path which now His children are permitted to
    , whose glory it is their heritage to share. In spite of the
    opposition of the sects, in the face of direct charges of blasphemy, the Church
    proclaims the eternal truth: ‘As man is, God once was; as
    God is, man may be.
    ‘” (LDS Apostle James E. Talmage, Articles of Faith,
    Ch.24, p.430 – p.431, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  2. ” ‘It is the first principle of the gospel to know
    for a certainty the character of God,’ the inspired word continues, ‘and to know
    that we may converse with Him as one man converses with another, and that He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the
    Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did.’ The
    Father is a glorified, perfected, resurrected, exalted man who worked out his
    salvation by obedience to the same laws he has given to us so that we may do the
    (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, A New Witness for the Articles of
    Faith, p.64, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  3. “Thus, on this beautiful spring morning in the
    Sacred Grove, Joseph Smith witnessed the renewal of God’s dealing with his
    children in accordance with the great gospel plan of redemption. Upon this
    occasion God the Father and his Beloved Son Jesus Christ appearing as glorified
    Resurrected Beings unto a chosen servant of God, made known once again the state
    of immortality which man will attain in preparation for the next estate of
    eternity; that also the world once again could know the reality of the personal
    nature of God the Father and his Beloved Son. (LDS Apostle Alvin R. Dyer,
    Conference Report, April 1963, p.49 – p.50, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  4. “As we stretch our imaginations to absorb the
    limitlessness of the creations of God we turn to a favorite song: If you could
    hie to Kolob in the twinkling of an eye, And then continue onward with that same
    speed to fly, D’ye think that you could ever, through all eternity, Find out the generation where Gods began to be? Or see the
    grand beginning, where space did not extend? Or view the last creation where
    Gods and matter end? Methinks the Spirit whispers, “No man has found ‘pure
    space,'” Nor seen the outside curtains, where nothing has a place. The works of
    God continue, and worlds and lives abound; Improvement and progression have one
    eternal round. There is no end to matter; there is no end to space; There is no
    end to spirit; there is no end to race.” (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie, Mormon
    Doctrine, p.250, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  5. God: Creator And Ruler Of
    Many Worlds
    . — While it is true that evolutionists may be divided
    between theistic and atheistic groups, yet most of those professing belief in
    God consider him to be an indefinable force, essence, or power of an
    incomprehensible nature. According to revelation, however, he is a personal Being, a holy and exalted Man, a glorified,
    resurrected Personage having a tangible body of flesh and bones, an
    anthropomorphic Entity, the personal Father of the spirits of all men.

    (D. & C. 130:22- 23; Moses 6:51, 57; Abra. 3:22-24; Jos. Smith 2:16-19.)”
  6. “We are members of the family of the Eternal
    Father. He is a glorified and exalted and eternal Being,
    having a resurrected body of flesh and bones. His name is God, and the kind of
    life he lives is God’s life.
    His name is also Eternal, and the name of
    the kind of life he lives is eternal life. Eternal life is God’s life, and God’s
    life is eternal life. We are commanded to be perfect as he is perfect and to
    advance and progress until we become like him, or in other words, until we gain
    eternal life. Thus Joseph Smith said, “You have got to learn
    how to be Gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all
    Gods have done before you, namely, by going from one small degree to another,
    and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace from exaltation to
    exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead, and are able to
    dwell in everlasting burnings and to sit in glory, as do those who sit enthroned
    in everlasting power.”
    (Teachings, pp. 346-47.) Christ our Lord has so
    obtained, thus enabling him to say to the faithful: “Ye shall be even as I am,
    and I am even as the Father.” (3 Ne. 28:10.)” (LDS Apostle Bruce R. McConkie,
    The Mortal Messiah, Vol.1, p.23 – p.24, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  7. “I will prove that the world is wrong, by showing
    what God is. I am going to inquire after God; for I want you all to know Him,
    and to be familiar with Him; and if I am bringing you to a knowledge of Him, all
    persecutions against me ought to cease. You will then know that I am His
    servant; for I speak as one having authority. … “I will go
    back to the beginning before the world was, to show what kind of a being God
    . What sort of a being was God in the beginning? Open your ears and
    hear, all ye ends of the earth. for I am going to prove it to you by the Bible,
    and to tell you the designs of God in relation to the human race, and why He
    interferes with the affairs of man. … “God himself was
    once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens!
    That is the great secret.
    If the veil were rent today, and the great God
    who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds and all things by
    His power, was to make himself visible,–I say, if you were to see him today,
    you would see him like a man in form–like yourselves in all the person, image,
    and very form as a man; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and
    likeness of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed
    with Him, as one man talks and communes with another. … “In order to
    understand the subject of the dead, for consolation of those who mourn for the
    loss of their friends, it is necessary we should understand the character and
    being of God and how He came to be so; for I am going to tell you how God came
    to be God. We have imagined and supposed that God was God from all eternity. I
    will refute that idea, and take away the veil, so that you may see. … “These
    are incomprehensible ideas to some, but they are simple. It is the first
    principle of the gospel to know for a certainty the character of God, and to
    know that we may converse with Him as one man converses with another, and that
    He was once a man like us; yea, that God himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on
    an earth, the same as Jesus Christ Himself did; and I will show it from the
    Bible. … “I wish I was in a suitable place to tell it, and that I had the
    trump of an archangel, so that I could tell the story in such a manner that
    persecution would cease forever. What did Jesus say? (Mark it, Elder Rigdon!)
    The scriptures inform us that Jesus said, as the Father hath power in himself,
    even so hath the Son power–to do what? Why, what the Father did. The answer is
    obvious–in a manner to lay down his body and take it up again. Jesus, what are
    you going to do? To lay down my life as my Father did, and take it up again. Do
    you believe it? If you do not believe it you do not believe the Bible. The
    scriptures say it, and I defy all the learning and wisdom and all the combined
    powers of earth and hell together to refute it. Here, then,
    is eternal life–to know the only wise and true God; and you have got to learn
    how to be gods yourselves, and to be kings and priests to God, the same as all
    gods have done before you, namely, by going from one small degree to another,
    and from a small capacity to a great one; from grace to grace, from exaltation
    to exaltation, until you attain to the resurrection of the dead,
    and are
    able to dwell in everlasting burnings. and to sit in glory, as do those who sit
    enthroned in everlasting power. And I want you to know that God, in the last
    days, while certain individuals are proclaiming His name, is not trifling with
    you or me.” (LDS President Joseph Smith, History of the Church, Vol.6, Ch.14,
    p.305-6, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  8. Intelligent beings are
    organized to become Gods, even the Sons of God, to dwell in the presence of the
    Gods, and become associated with the highest intelligences that dwell in
    eternity. We are now in the school, and must practice upon what we
    ” (LDS President Brigham Young, Discourses of Brigham Young,
    p.245, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)
  9. “This was the calling of Joseph Smith. He taught
    anew that God was in the form of man; that man was made in the image of God; and
    he taught the principles of justice, mercy, charity, and forgiveness. … He
    taught the truths that the Prophets before him had taught;
    and he went beyond them. …
    Joseph Smith taught men to look up to heaven and conceive of
    a God in the form of man. He taught them that they could become like their
    Father and God, who was ‘an exalted Man.’ And what is more simple and
    reasonable? Don’t you parents expect your children to become like you? Or do you
    expect your children to be something else than men and women?
    No. You men
    will see your sons become men; you women will see your daughters become women.
    Then God our Father–yes, and our Mother–in heaven, looking down upon this
    world– this school house in which their children are being
    educated–expect, and Joseph Smith taught it as a truth, that their children
    will be exalted, if they pursue the proper course, until they shall become
    divine beings themselves, worthy to stand upon that plane where stand their
    Father and their Mother in heaven. Like begets like; and the principle of
    eternal progress will make of man a God.

    Collected Discourses, Vol.5, May 8, 1898, LDS Collectors Library ’97 CD-ROM)

Why would the Mormons believe that Adolf Hitler can be transferred from “spirit prison” and get into heaven?


Adolph Hitler

One of the most evil men known. Who
brought about what millions perceive as the darkest days in world history.

Although none can imagine and many even shudder to think at the
possibility of this man calling upon God’s grace in the Cross of Christ in his
last hours, there is one Church that does not believe he needed to do so in
order to go to heaven.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints



Why would the Mormons believe that Adolf Hitler can be transferred from
“spirit prison” and get into heaven?

It is not because they believe the grace of God can extend to the most evil
of men, but because of their practice known as “Baptism For The Dead”.

What is Baptism for the dead? Mormons teach that there are 3 separate levels
of heaven. Evil people leave this world and are kept in spirit prison where they
have a chance to hear and receive the “Mormon gospel”. In the mean time, Mormons
who are alive are being baptized for their dead relatives so the dead relative
will be allowed into heaven after receiving the “gospel” in the spirit prison.

LDS President Joseph Fielding Smith explained: “The Lord will judge each
individual case and will assign transgressor to that degree to which each is
entitled according to his works. If a man only merits a place in the telestial,
that will be his reward; if it should be the terrestrial, then he shall be
admitted to that kingdom. In order to enter the celestial a man must be true and
faithful to the end, observing all things which the Lord has commanded,
otherwise he shall be assigned to some other kingdom, or to outer darkness if
his sins so merit” (Doctrines of Salvation 3:310).

These beliefs are taken from very poor Biblical interpretation by LDS
General Authorities who like to read things into these verses of the Apostles,
Paul and Peter, that simply are not there. (1
Cor. 15:29
, 1
Cor. 15:40-41

Peter 3:19-20

Yet, what do Mormon Church officials do when they are questioned about their
gospel extending to Adolf Hitler? Are they open in exclaiming the grace of God
to all, or are they coy in their dealing with questions? The following report is

The Mormon Church Attempts to Conceal Temple Records for Adolf Hitler Special
Report by Helen Radkey
(Taken from the May/June 1999 Edition of
“The Evangel” a Utah Missions Inc. Publication — )

On August 30, 1998, Don McAreavy, of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, wrote to the
LDS Family History Library asking if LDS proxy temple work had been performed
for Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun. McAreavy specifically wanted to know if temple
ordinances had been performed for Hitler and Braun on September 28, 1993, in the
Jordan River Temple, Utah.

A response to this inquiry was sent to McAreavy on September 8, 1998. Typed
on an official letterhead of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
the letter was signed by Mae Dean Ashton. The address of the sender was shown
as: Family History Library, 35 North West Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah

Ashton’s reply reads as follows:


Dear Mr. McAreavy:
Thank you for your letter of August 30th regarding
temple ordinances for Adolph Hitler and Eva Braun. We searched the International
Genealogical Index TM Addendum and found no information listed for either. The
enclosed printout is the closest we could find and you will note that birthdates
are 1836 and 1838. No additional information is available.


Mae Dean Ashton
Team Leader
Photo duplication Unit

The printout Ashton sent McAreavy shows LDS proxy ordinances that have been
performed for Alois Hiedler or Heidler (Hitler), the father of Adolf Hitler.

In October 1998, McAreavy was able to obtain copies of LDS temple ordinance
records for Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun from Philip Roberts of the North American
Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. These IGI (International
Genealogical Index) copies reveal that Adolf Hitler was “baptized” and “endowed”
on December 10, 1993, and “sealed” to his parents on March 12, 1994. These
events took place in the London Temple, England.

Roberts’ copies also show that Hitler was ‘sealed” to Braun on September 28,
1993, in the Jordan River Temple, Utah and on June 14, 1994, in the Los Angeles
Temple. Roberts sent copies of these records to Ashton.

McAreavy sent another mailing to Ashton on October 17, 1998, again asking her
if she could locate information for Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun in LDS files. On
November 17, 1998, McAreavy mailed a double registered letter to Ashton. He
reminded her that Roberts had sent documentation to her that seemed to indicate
that the Mormon Church had done templeordinances for Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun.

“Would you please be kind enough to verify if the information that Philip
Roberts provided is both accurate and proof that temple ordinances were
performed for Adolf Hitler,” McAreavy wrote.

Ashton replied to McAreavy’s November 17 letter on December 2, 1998. She
again insisted that the (Alois Hitler) copies she had sent McAreavy with her
September 8 letter were all that could be located in the IGI TM (Addendum).
McAreavy was informed that he could soon expect to receive a reply from the
(Family History) Department Director.

On December 29, 1998, McAreavy again wrote to Ashton. He requested the name
and mailing address of the Department Director because he had received no
communication from that person as promised by Ashton. When there was no response
to this request, McAreavy wrote directly to the Department Director of the
Photo- duplication Department of the Family History Library on January 25, 1999.
McAreavy again asked if the Mormon Church had done temple ordinances for Hitler
and Braun.

The following reply, again typed on an official letterhead of The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dated March 16, 1999, was sent to McAreavy
from the Family History Library:

To Whom It May Concern:

Subject: Famous or Historical Figures

You recently wrote to
inquire if temple ordinances have been performed for a famous or historical
figure. As a matter of policy, we respond to such requests only when those
making the request are directly related to the person about whom they seek
information. It might be helpful to know that, as an institution, we have no
control over the names individuals submit to receive temple ordinances. However,
we strongly counsel Church members to submit only the names of those persons to
whom they are related. Furthermore, we believe that ordinances performed in
behalf of any deceased individual are valid only if that person is worthy of and
chooses to accept what has been done in his or her behalf. The Church spends a
great deal of time, effort, and money to make information available that helps
not only its members, but all who are interested in family history pursuits. You
are welcome to use the resources we provide. We hope you find satisfaction in
doing so.


Family History Department

In this impersonal communication to McAreavy, thc LDS Family History
Department clearly avoided taking responsibility for the discrepancy between
Ashton’s September 8 denial of LDS temple work for Hitler and Braun and the IGI
copies, supplied by Roberts, which seem to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that
this notoriously well-known pair have, indeed, had proxy LDS ordinances
performed on their behalf.

At the time McAreavy made his initial inquiry to the Family History Library
on August 30, there were multiple entries in LDS temple ordinance files that
showed that Mormons have performed various rituals on behalf of Hitler and
Braun. These records can still be accessed. Ashton gave McAreavy incorrect
information. Was this a deliberate evasion of truth? What are the facts?

Current IGI TM addendum temple ordinance entries for Mr. (Adolf) Hiedler
(Hitler) show that Hitler was “baptized” by Mormons on September 30, 1993, and
“endowed” on April 27, 1994, in the Jordan River Temple, Utah. This record was
in the IGI TM Addendum at the time of Ashton’s denial to McAreavy (of temple
ordinance information for Adolf Hitler) on September 8. I obtained a copy of
this particular record for Hitler from the LDS Family Search Center in the
Joseph Smith Memorial Building in downtown Salt Lake City on July l3, 1998 —
less than two months before Ashton stated that no such IGI record existed for

If Ashton and her co-workers were not very efficient in their search for
Adolf Hitler temple ordinance entries in the LDS genealogical computer system,
the same could be said for their lack of thorougliness in locating the same type
of records for Eva Braun.

Eva Anna Paula Braun, born in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, on February 7, 1912,
was “baptized” by Mormons on October 16, 1964, and “endowed” on February 5,
1965, in the Los Angeles Temple. She had been ‘sealed” to her parents some time
prior to 1970. This information is current and is easily accessible in the IGI
TM Addendum, in which file Ashton stated that no information was available for
either Hitler or Braun. Genuine seekers should have found these entries for

In this case, it seems these records may have been intentionally overlooked.
Was it easier for McAreavy to be given inaccurate information rather than
present him with any copies that he could possibly have used against the Mormon
Church? 0r,are the staff of the Family History Library so poorly skilled at
accessing their own computer files that they missed the entries in question?

In addition to the IGI, which is a huge database of names and vital
information for multi-millions of people, with an Ordinance Index attached, the
other significant LDS genealogical file is the Ancestral File. In this family
history archive, LDS ordinance records may be found attached to pedigree charts.

There are currently Ancestral File ordinance records that show that Adolf
Hitler was “baptized” on September 4, 1993, “endowed” on October 12, 1993, and
“sealed” to his parents and also Eva Braun on June 14, 1994 in the Los Angeles
Temple. The June 14 sealing of Hitler and Braun is the same sealing of which
Roberts sent copies to McAreavy and Ashton. These entries could once be found in
the IGI. They have since been deleted, along with other entries for prominent
Nazis. What is going on here?

Prior to adding the 1997 edition to the IGI, it seems that the Mormon Church,
intent on preserving its public image, attempted to remove the names of
well-known Nazis from the IGI files. Most of the IGI entries for Adolf Hitler,
Mrs.(Adolf Hitler), Adolf Eichmann, Paul Joseph Goebbels, Hermann Goering,
Rudolf Hess, and Heinrich Himmler were quietly removed. Also erased were the
records for Benito Mussolini, the dictator of Fascist Italy from 1922 to l943
and an ally of Hitler and the Third Reich.

But the deletion effort was botched. Some entries were missed, such as the
ones still current for Hitler and Braun in the IGI and Ancestral File. The IGI
ordinance records for Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, which correctly showed his
place of birth as Alexandria, Egypt, were deleted yet other TGI ordinance
entries still exist for Hess, wrongly listing his place of birth as Germany.

Also missed were LDS ordinance records, which still exist in the Ancestral
File, for Paul Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Goering These entries, which include
baptisms for each of them, may have been intentionally removed from the IGI

Mormons apparently overlooked the LDS ordinance records of other well-known
Nazis during their IGI purge. These records are currently accessible. Included
in this liberal list are: Reinhard Heydrich, “The Father of The Final Solution”
Hitler’s plan to exterminate all Jews in Europe; Alfred Rosenberg, hanged at
hanged at Nuremberg for war crimes; Ernst Roehm, once the thuggish leader of
Hitler’s Storm Troopers; and Field Marshall Erwin Rommel, the Famous Desert Fox
of World War II.

In May 1994 and March 1996, from LDS genealogical centers I obtained numerous
Nazi IGI entries that have since been deleted. In this collection are copies of
the LDS records for Hitler and Braun that Roberts sent to McAreavy and Ashton,
with the additional sealing of Adolf Hitler to his parents on June 14, 1994.

I have IGI copies of all the LDS ordinance records for Hitler, which are
currently in the Ancestral File but no longer in the IGI. As well, my copies
show another baptism for Hitler, almost identical to the one still in the IGI
files under Heidler (Hitler) with the same ordinance dates. But the deleted
entry is listed as Hitler (Hiedler) Adolf, showing a birth date of l889. The
Hiedler (Hitler) entry shows a birth date of 1891so they are different records.

A mysterious record for a Mr. Hitler, of Vienna, Austria, with date of death
1900, and showing a proxy baptism date of April 15,1924, in the Logan Temple,
Utah, is also no longer in the IGI files. Other vanished IGI entries are a
sealing of Adolf Hitler to Eva Braun on October 19, 1993, at the Jordan River
Temple, and a baptism for Mrs. Hitler (Hiedler) on September 10, 1993, and an
endowment for her on March 17, 1994, also in the Jordan River Temple.

The Mormon Church has attempted to deliberately conceal LDS temple ordinances
for Adolf Hitler. This first occurred with the disappearance of many of the IGI
records for Hitler and other publicly known evildoers of the Third Reich. Then
— there was a second attempt to cover-up Nazi records who Ashton told McAreavy
that no LDS temple ordinances had been performed for Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun.

Even when confronted by Robert with IGI temple records for Hitler and Braun,
those in charge of the Family History Department at the Family History Library,
representing the genealogical arm of the Mormon Church, did not want to lake
responsibility for these records. Their implausible excuse was that they have no
control over the names individuals submit to receive temple ordinances.

Like a slippery snake in the grass, the Mormon Church may have tried to dodge
public criticism by denying its questionable proxy recognition of Adolf Hitler
the amoral and evil Nazi genius who was responsible for the terror and barbarism
of the Third Reich and the loss of millions of innocent lives before and during
World War II. But LDS ordinance records speak for themselves–Mormons have
repeatedly claimed the unpopular Hitler. Anything stated to the contrary cannot
alter this conclusion.

Deception is not the hallmark of a church with integrity. As the Mormon
Church will eventually find out even the most artful serpent can be choked by
its own coils!

banks to ruin Occupiers’ lives, because another pair of collectivist cretins,
Kim Il-sung and his creepy son Kim Jung-il, got rid of them long ago.  In fact,
along with ridding North Korea of everything other than the glorious state, the

of demands in demand one), “the restoration of the living wage,” North Korea has
followed the Occupiers’ proposed playbook and ended “Freetrade [sic]” by
creating a trade-free society.  Additionally, in North Korea, there is no need
to slap “trade tariffs” on imports of “cheap products” to “level the playing
field” because the Kims have created an import-free society as well.  As for the
“twenty dollar an hour minimum wage” demand,  life is just too short (literally)
in the Kimdom to worry about something so inconsequential when one is privileged
to live under the cradle-to-(early-)grave care of the “Dear


Demand two, “a universal single payer healthcare
system,” was instituted way back in 1948.  For more than sixty years now, all of
North Korea’s lucky citizens have received the same horrendous level of medical
treatment.  The Occupiers will be heartened to know that everyone does his or
her “fair share” of suffering.  And fear not, dear Occupiers — because the
government is in charge, greedy private insurers cannot take money away from
doctors, nurses, and hospitals…because there is no money.  But the biggest
benefit is that there are no big pharmaceutical companies to stick it to the
average North Korean by producing life-saving drugs (or any drugs, for that
matter) and selfishly expecting payment for them.


There is really good news when it comes to demand
three, a “[g]uaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.”  The cost
of living (i.e., barely surviving) is real cheap in North Korea, with the
average North Korean living (i.e., barely surviving) on one dollar per month.
Additionally, there are almost no jobs, so employment is not a


The good news just keeps coming as the benevolent Kims
have already met demand four: “free college education.”  But there are a few
strings attached, such as that you do not get to go to the college of your
choice, if you get to go at all; that would be up to the state.  Also, sometimes
the benevolent North Korean government might decide to send you to a
re-education institution instead (maybe for publicly demonstrating, or just
because it feels like it).  But, on the bright side, there are no student loans
to pay off — only the continued payment of a lifelong servitude to the

Demand five is one the Kim Klan has made unnecessary:
“begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at
the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.”  There is
no economy in North Korea, so there is no need to fuel it.  However, on the
bright side, the North Koreans do use an alternative energy — burning feces —
to heat their homes during the winter.


Demand six is another superfluous petition: “One
trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and
Electrical Grid) spending now.”  The Kims have made it so North Korea does not
need roads and bridges because no one can afford a car anyway, and an electrical
grid is just a wasted expense in a country with barely any electricity.  Anyway,
the Dear Leader already makes sure everyone gets his “fair share” of
electricity, and he has been quite generous and innovative with North Korea’s
water and sewer systems; both openly run together through the


The Occupier’s seventh demand of “[o]ne trillion
dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and
the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America’s
nuclear power plants” maybe one demand too far even for the little miracle
worker Kim Jung Il.  First off, North Korea is a Democratic People’s Republic
and, as in all Democratic Peoples’ Republics, ecology is always the state’s
official number one concern so any restoration is simply not needed.  Second,
there is very little the Dear Leader can do to personally shut down America’s
nuclear power plants but maybe he can get the Obama Administration to do so as a
concession the next time he throws a fit and threatens to blow up the


Demand eight for a “[r]acial and gender equal rights
amendment” is not necessary because all North Koreans are the same race and
regardless of gender all are treated like prisoners.  Of course, all the
Occupiers are not of the same race (though 99% are white) but, rest assured, the
Dear Leader would be more than glad to treat them like prisoners


Though not specifically meeting demand nine for
“[o]pen borders migration. anyone [sic] can travel anywhere to work and live,”
at least the Kim Klan does not discriminate (like the evil U.S.) in its border
policies.  Simply put, no one is allowed in or out of North Korea, and if you do
leave, your family will be imprisoned and/or killed.  The policy is a bit
brutal, but it is equally implemented, so at least it is


Demand number ten is something about “fair elections,”
which is moot because there are no elections in North Korea.  Thus, everyone
fairly and equally has the right not to vote, so there is no chance that Wall
Street money will corrupt the political process.  And not having elections
provides the extra benefit of doing away with the necessity for racist policies
like requiring photo ID at the polling places.


Demand eleven, “[i]mmediate across the board debt
forgiveness for all,” has been met in spades.  The North Korean government
unilaterally forgives all of its debts by simply refusing to pay (not that it
could).  And of course there is no consumer debt, because there is nothing to


Demand twelve, to “[o]utlaw all credit reporting
agencies,” like universal health care, was taken care of in 1948.  Regrettably,
some shooting was involved.


And finally, demand thirteen is about the right of the
worker to easily unionize.  Everyone already knows that there is no need for
unions in a worker’s paradise like North Korea.  All citizens voluntarily work
for the good of the state because failing to do so will get them shot.  Also,
there are barely any jobs in North Korea, so that is another reason why
unionizing is not an issue.


Maybe in the next “lies for food and oil” swindle Kim
Jong-il perpetrates on the morons in the U.S. State Department, we could at
least throw in a few thousand Occupiers as part of the deal.  Everyone would
win: 99.999% of Americans would be rid of these fools, and the Occupiers would
get to live in the world they demand.
