Ugh.. Never mind forget the question..

I changed this because everyone got so off topic. We went from a nice conversation with good points on both sides to my religion an myself being bashed to the ground with comments like "you're brainwashed" "you're sentencing yourself to damnation" and "this "church" is based on nothing but deceit and falsehoods."
That wasn't the point of the original post at all.. So unless you want to get back to the point can we move on please?

Here's the original post ya crybabies...


Quoting little.worthen:

I'm just curious if you could tell me why LDS people get all the bashing but Jewish people do not?
We both have sacred temple covenants
We both wear garments or (special underwear I've heard them called)
We both don't believe in the trinity

Jewish people don't even believe in Jesus.

Now I'm in no way bashing the Jewish religion, I'm just curious why the LDS are bashed mainly for the same things the Jewish religion do.
I suppose it's not a big deal either way, I'm just curious what people's opinions are.

I didn't say you bash them either. Generally the LDS are bashed more. That's all

Quoting snookyfritz:

I don't bash LDS.  Most are very nice people who raise very nice and responsible children.



Quoting little.worthen:

I never said they were the same. I said they share a few similarities that only the LDS get bashed for



Quoting snookyfritz:

LDS are not Jews nor are they close to Jews.  Jews have never left the path.

I grew up in the LDS church and have awful memories due to it, that's where my disdain comes from. The Jews i've known over the years have been nothing but kind and considerate, never pushing their beliefs at me or using them to treat me badly or judge me, so i have nothing bad to say about them.

I think that's what it boils down to for a lot of people.

 Thank you.  For the record, I do not bash on LDS either, I just think that a lot of people get uber annoyed at the door to door thing and that makes them more likely to bash those who do than those who don't. 


Quoting little.worthen:

This is actually a very good answer and probably has a lot of truth

Quoting LoveMyBoyK:

Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Jews are not door to door Religion salesmen.

Well if you read my FIRST reply... Anyway hmmm how many LDS cults have been found? How many abuse children and women?

Quoting little.worthen:

Yeah.... I was looking for actual intelligent answers but okay.

And what do you have to back up this statement? Lol do you even know anyone who is LDS?


Quoting delilahsmom1177:

Because the LDS is evil.

Okay but let me ask you this. Was it the religion that gave you the bad memories, or experiences you had with a couple handfuls of people who belong to the church?

That's certainly what they want people to think and the image they portray, not quite the reality though sadly. There's more nastiness and backbiting in the LDS church than in most high schools. Putting out that Stepford Wives perfection image is what they're taught to do, then they get together and tear people apart behind their backs.  They're subtle in their viciousness but vicious nonetheless *some not even all that subtle* They can make an Ahmish shunning seem friendly.

Stuff like this is why there's an entire community of people recovering from being members, there are support groups to help people get past the damage done to them from it all.
