Strange Results from Heaven War

Post by moksha » Fri Apr 05, 2024 2:47 pm

Even though anchovies, black licorice, and the internal organs of animals (especially beef liver, but not so much for foie gras and optional tripe in Pho) were vastly unvaliant in the Heaven Wars, the religious repudiation by the Lord's true Church unjustly falls on the Tea and Coffee plants. These plants were way more valiant than oysters or beets. This makes little sense since green tea is the healthiest drink available.

Why are these prohibitions from the Heaven War so strange?

Does anyone agree with me that baklava was the most valiant pastry?

I’ll give you baklava as a most valiant pastry.
I used to be fed tripe in menudo and it often tasted and smelled like you might think. Surely that was more offensive than the bold and inspiring smell of mountain grown coffee.

Once when tracting on my mission we went into a home that smelled like an open sewer. I asked, "is everything ok? Do you have a broken pipe?" They answered, "No. we're cooking menudo!"

Menudo is in but tea and coffee are out. Makes you think menudo was not very valiant during the Heaven War.

Here is a brief documentary on Utah's strangeness:

Michelangelo's statue David can be shown in Salt Lake if you cover its nakedness with LDS garments and the statue keeps them on day and night.

1. The most important article is the Temple Steeple's height.

2. The second is obedience to Church Authorities.

The first may seem new to members so memorize it and repeat it at all city councils and zoning meetings.

I'm surprised the Church did not mention the powerful laser beam atop the Luxor Casino pyramid in its presentation to the City Council, regarding the Lone Mountain Temple in Las Vegas. Mormons have a strong affinity for anything of a Reformed Egyptian origin, such as this pyramid laser beam. The tall steeple is needed to help guide the starships from Kolob.

Only if you then put him in a suit to keep the garments out of sight and mind. They are sacred but not secret. Except that they are also secret.

That may have prevented Rodin's The Kiss and The Thinker from being banned from their scheduled exhibition at BYU. Even still, the subject matter of kissing and thinking would have been sternly reviewed by the BYU Honors Committee.

That was so utterly ridiculous.

It's a good thing they were never offered Michelangelo's David. Can't show his naughty bits, can't put him in garments. Apron? Nope, also too sacred. Diaper?
