    Is it "Satanic hate"?

    Some people have called my attacks on the false Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to come from "Satanic hate". Well, here's what I have to say to it. Now, if a person goes out into the woods, makes a hoax, brings it back, and then claims it as a religion, is it a religion of truth, or one of Satan? Therefore, I belive Joseph Smith to be a liar and a deciever of all men. When I hate the LDS church, I hate no individual, I hate the lies and falsehood that are taught there. Therefore, I am not hating in the Satanic manner it was implied, but I am hating the Satanic. I have a holy discontent over the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I believe it to be a den of lies pushed upon the innocent from birth, forcing them to be indoctrinated so that they cannot realize that their own books do not make sense with the Bible. The LDS Church is not a Christian church, it is a Satanic cult, and I will treat it as such.

    The Heresy of the Book of Mormon

    Now, some people know that I have a mission to point out the lies of the Cult of Mormon, and I am dissecting the Book of Mormon to point out how it is directly incompatible with the Holy Scripture.

    "The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God’s dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains, as does the Bible, the fulness of the everlasting gospel." Now, this is from the official LDS source. They basically state that their book is the Bible. No proof given, either, which would be nice.

    Therefore, the Book of Mormon is putting itself into the place of inspired scripture. Want to know how many copies of it there are? As far as we know, none (with only eleven "witnesses", not including Joseph Smith). The traditional Bible has many copies. We don't know if an original Book of Mormon even exists on gold plates (which would be extremely heavy or fragile, not to mention unlikely to survive long when in a book, due to lack of ink retention or pressure killing engraving, if only towards the middle of the book), as is stated. And don't try the golden paper crap. There's no way paper would've survived in the North American climate.

    There's not even enough evidence to prove its existence, not to mention accuracy in "translation" if it actually did exist. After all, the people who wrote it were totally annihilated, right? No retention of language or culture. Therefore, unless I can have any of these accusations refuted, I believe it to be a lie for the personal gain of Joseph Smith. And don't get me started on his self-promotion.

    Signs of a Cult

  1. Your leader, a mere human, claims self-gained supernatural powers, or telepathy.
  2. You have to work for your salvation.
  3. You believe everyone is saved.
  4. You have your own holy text, which makes claims of power. Philosophy does not count as a holy text, unless it proclaims itself as such.
  5. Your leader claims that he will judge you after death.
  6. Your leader encourages the use of recreational substances.
  7. Your leader encourages the use of suicide to avoid torture by the outside.
  8. Your leader tries to make you form a secluded group.
  9. Your leader brainwashes your children.
  10. You believe any supernatural force has come from man.
  11. You worship animals or nature, as well as ritual sacrifices.
  12. Your religion is anything akin to what's on my own Pantheon for my RPG.
  13. You promote seclusion for reasons other than purity (whether or not it's used as the textbook answer for seclusion).
  14. You don't have explanations to what you believe other than footnotes.
  15. You cannot refute accusations of being a cult.
  16. Your religion encourages excommunication for anything short of blatant attacks on itself.
  17. You find nothing wrong with the world's moral state.
  18. You are willing to take the word of a comitee fewer than fifty.
  19. Your leaders are selfish.
  20. Your leaders will not allow themselves to be martyred.
  21. Your leaders promote violence.
  22. Your leaders totally renounce violence, even to defend themselves.
