At http://www.astronomy.net/forums/god/messages/27965.shtml, Lysithea, self-identified as an anonymous 18-year-old Mormon female writes:
"Your right. The Mormons ARE evil. We're all going to Hell next sunday."


First, it's "you're." Second, Sunday is capitalized.
Thirdly, your prejudice should have made you suspect I was pulling someone's leg. I don't hold such simplistic opinions. I rarely do a spoof post and I think I always own up to it.
I have Mormon friends and I realize their teachings are designed to help their families be successful in life to the best of their abilities. Sometimes they seem to me to be excellent, and sometimes I think I see some shortcomings in how they do things. But this post helped tease out the following statement by
Lysithea, self-identified as an anonymous 18-year-old Mormon female. At http://www.astronomy.net/forums/god/messages/27965.shtml, she wrote:
"Freemasons? What have they to do with anything? They were a cult - in my understanding - and they were never and are not affiliated with the LDS church."

I was told by an LDS Sunday school teacher quite recently that Mormons are allowed to be Masons.
Your statement surprises me. I know the Sunday school teacher. I don't know you.
Cordially,
Mike
