OK, this is my first actual post on Above Top Secret. I've enjoyed reading the entries over the years, but this is the first time I've felt
something warranted a response.
I'm a Mormon. I served a two year mission to Colombia (yes, the dangerous third world coutry), and while your first three posts were a, well, some
what accurate portrayal of our belief system (with a few glaring misrepresentations and omissions), the fourth post was absolutely hilarious. Several
people have responded to most of the misconceptions written there, but I'd like to add my two cents.
Are you kidding me? You honestly believe that Mormonism is part of the NWO? Allow me to explain something. There is a reason why many memebers of
the CIA are mormons. Shortly after I returned from my mission, I was approached by the CIA to join them as a "Calndestine Agent", which I guess is
someone who actually works in the field in different countries, gathering intel. When I asked them why they were recruiting me, they said 1 - I was
already fluent in spanish, and familiar with the cultural habits in Colombia, and 2 - In general, Mormons are more honest, turstworthy, and are less
likely to betray their country. So the CIA actually has a recruitment program where they track down returned missionaries from various countries and
try to get them to join up.
There's your grand NWO conspiracy.
Honestly, your conjectures are really, really silly. Yes, Mormons are asked to have a two year food supply, in case of an emergency. Shortly before
I arrived in Colombia, there was a huge earthquake in the enterior of the country (1999), and believe me, the members of the church who had a food
storage were very grateful for the advice, and happy they had something. And the reason we're asked to have two years worth of food, is because in
the case of a dire emergency where food is not available, two years worth of food for one family, is enough food for three months for most of our
neighbors families. So while you label us nut-cases, we're simply trying to look out for our neighbors and fellow men. Which we believe is one of
the core teachings of Jesus Christ, the Bible, the Book of Mormon, and most modern day revelations our Prophets have received.
Lastly, yes, one of the core tenants of the Mormon religion is asking God for yourself wether or not it's the true church, wether or not Joseph Smith
was a prophet or a nut-case, and wether or not the Book of Mormon is true. And frankly, I wouldn't have it any other way. You see, most people
believe their religion because they were raised that way, or because they think it's the closest to what they personally believe, etc. But as for
me, I was an aitheist for a long time, decided it didn't quite work for me, did a large and extensive study of every religion I could find, and came
down to two finalists, Buddhism, and Mormonism. So I asked God himself, not my pastor, not a philosopher, I went straight to the source, and I got my
answer. I think it's funny that the idea of asking God directly for knowledge is being painted in a bad light. Yes, certainly talking to God is a
bad thing. Just listen to what everyone else, and all the experts tell you is correct. Isn't that the kind of thinking that led us into the dark
Now if anyone has any questions about Mormonism, I'd be more than happy to ask, not as an ex-member of the church, or someone whose talked to
mormons, but a real live blooded, temple going, tithe paying, pot luck attending mormon.
