Like marriage?

Full membership? You mean you have partial members?

Yes, you can have full fellowship of the Church, or be dis fellowshipped.

You don't need to be married to have full fellowship in the LDS Church.

Not what I asked. You mentioned full membership, does that mean there is such thing as partial membership?

And then you also mentioned "and all of it's bessings", but I'm assuming that doesn't mean marriage?

So they are still second rate members.

I was using membership and fellowship interchangeably.

No, there is not a partail membership, you either or a member or not, and there are Gay members who enjoy full fellowship.

And no you don't need to be married to have membership in the LDS Church.

it's true.

i saw a really, really interesting program on Mormans last night on PBS, and the fully accept that people are gay.

you just can't do anything about it. you have to be celibate.

i have no use for the mormon religion, nor will i pretend to know a lot about it.

but for fuck sakes, why do some of you look for fights in every fucking thread?

that's what IIIIIII do, and i look ridiculous.

it's like some of you are so hell-bent in your own philosophies, you feel the need to post it in every thread possible - regardless of the issue in hand!

a man dies, and instantly the usual suspects come riding on their high horse looking to see if they sharpen their knives.

i'm a liberal myself, but i'm embarrassed by it sometimes. i mean... i practically agree with everything some of you say, but you come across in such a distasteful manner it makes me sick to my stomach.

politics is no different than cheerleading, apparently.

Way to avoid the question for the second time. I never asked if you have to be married to have membership.

Look at you original post. You said:
Quote:
who enjoy full membership and all it's blessings.
"And all of it's blessings" this part is false, for they cannot enjoy all of it's blessings.

a man dies, and according to the quote attributed to him by diamond (and assuming that it's indeed true), and instantly this turns into a typical liberal v conservative grudge match.

i'm a liberal myself, but i'm embarassed by it. i mean... i practically agree with everything some of you say, but you come across in such a distasteful manner it makes me sick to my stomach.

Some of us are just trying to get answers. If someone states their religion is all inclusive and everyone is treated equally, I want to know if they are full of shit or not.

Is a thread about the recent passing of a Mormon leader the appropriate place to do it?

I didn't bring it up, if the thread started brought it up, than sure...

Is a thread about a religious leader passing the time and place to make propagandish statements about the religion?

I'm not looking for any "fucking fight", I just put it in the same thread to avoid starting another thread-and because the subject had already been mentioned in the thread. Not hell bent on anything, just wondering what Mormons think about that. I have no axe to grind with any of them and I'm not on a high horse about it.

Geesh-a mod can delete it or start a separate thread if it's a problem.
