LDS Church during the Third Reich
« on: January 03, 2017, 10:50:55 PM »
I just learned about this and was fascinated by it

Apparently the Mormon church actively abetted the Nazis.
"Give me the storm and tempest of thought and action, rather than the dead calm of ignorance and faith. Banish me from Eden when you will; but first let me eat of the fruit of the tree of knowledge."
— Robert G. Ingersoll

Funny, I'm surprised they didn't persecute the Mormons like they did pretty much every other minority.   :-\

From backing Hitler to openly opposing Trump despite the potential fall out from the recently acquired power they've found in the Republican Party.  Dare I say that the Mormons (err Latter Day Saint, or whatever) are actually improving?

In retrospect, it makes sense, not because they're inherently racist so much as its almost part of their theology to render unto Caesar.* 

I fail to see how restrictive drunk driving limits shows much of anything other than intolerance of driving under the influence. 


*Also, at the time their theology was racist, towards dark people anyway.

On the scale of how much Andrew Clunn cares about things, not killing millions of people because of their race is pretty high up there.  Just not as high as my blood alcohol content at any given moment.
