What happens to the Honest Mormon?

Post by moksha » Fri May 17, 2024 5:37 pm

The stakes near the proposed McKinney Temple in Texas were instructed to mention how the height of the temple steeple was essential to the LDS faith at the city planning and zoning meeting. I suspect the Church was trying to push this lie so the steeple height would be less of a stumbling block. The Church packed the meeting room and many Saints repeated this lie.

Finally, one lone LDS member stood and repudiated the lie. He said that the steeple height has nothing to do with his faith. He said he was disappointed in the Church and his stake president for pushing this lie.

I am very curious as to how the Church will punish this honest Mormon for telling the truth.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.

Nice to hear one brave soul, but he sounds mistaken- from the tower of Babble to the Rameumptum, the *true* church has always taught the principle that the higher the steeple on great and spacious buildings, the closer they are to God (probably so they can get better cell reception for their prayers)

Biggest steeple, pure doctrine (not trying to compensate for anything), it's one of the articles of faith, to build large steeples.

Haven’t you ever heard that steeples pointing up are phallic symbols? The higher the steeple, the better the reception on the priesthood antenna. You have a building with no steeple, you may as well give the priesthood to women. Very much having good steeples is part of our doctrine, more a part f our doctrine than that blacks were less valiant in the preexistance. That turned out to be just policy, but having the proper steeple is deeply symbolic of penises and men’s sacred priesthood.

The interesting thing about the "Honest Mormon" is that there so few of them to be found.

Honest Mormons have a short life span because by stating the truth, they force other less honest Mormons to deal with reality, burst their bubble and experience the pain of grappling with their own mendacity when they get called out.

I was taught that the steeple was an eventual angelic portal to heaven and that in some future time a heavenly elevator would be installed. Righteous members would receive the keys of ascension, the elevator passcode, and have to shake hands with the elevator man. So of course it was part of our doctrine.

I was also taught to lie. In 12 year old worthiness interviews, missionary stats reporting, home teaching numbers, and all other forms of Mormon lying for the Lord.
