To own a black slave in
antebellum America was
A slave was worth over
eleven thousands dollars
in today’s currency.
Slaves planted and picked
crops worth hundreds of millions
of dollars in today’s currency.
Slave owners were multi-millionaires
in today’s currency.
So when slave owners realized the
practice of slavery might end, they
were willing to do anything to save
their wealth. They were full of fear.
Can you blame them for starting a war?
During the Spanish Inquisition, starting in
1478, Jews and Muslims were given a choice.
Join the Catholic Church or leave the country.
Over four centuries there were twists and
Turns; those Jews who converted were
called conversos, and those Muslims who
converted were called Moriscos. Eventually
it was determined that forced conversion
didn’t work. So expulsion, torture, hanging
and murder were employed. Can you blame
the monarchs of Spain, and their fellow
participants, the popes of Rome, for enforcing
such a policy? Jews and Muslims were a threat
to Christian sovereignty. Surely you can see their
All combatants of World War 1 were convinced
of one thing: Jewish Intellectuals were responsible
for causing the war. Jews were thought to be in
conspiracy working for both sides to cause the
war. This kind of thinking reached a boiling point
in Europe leading up to World War 2. Germany
took the lead in purging Jews from their homeland.
When expelling became too expensive and slow,
they killed Jews. Now really, can you blame them
for their actions? Jews were seen as a threat to
German safety and sovereignty. Surely you can
appreciate their concern. Can’t you?
In 1887 America had had enough of the Mormons.
Having freed the slaves of the south they turned
to confiscating the Church’s property,and hunting
down its leaders and throwing them in prison. For
what? For practicing polygamy. Can you blame
the government for supporting the standard of
one man, one woman In marriage. The Church’s
prophets cried out that this was a violation of their
constitutional right to practice their religion. But you
can hardly blame the government for their actions
can you? It’s one man married to one woman that
Presently,I’m observing something of the same
pattern in my own religion. This time, it has
nothing to do with black slaves or Jews or Muslims or
polygamists, but with homosexuals. Church leaders
are hunting down, confronting, charging, disciplining and
excommunicating Mormon same sex married couples to
ensure they’re purged from the flock. Children of same sex
couples are to be denied a christening, a name,
a baptism, and an opportunity to serve a mission unless
at eighteen years of age they disavow same sex marriage
and remove themselves from the homes of their parents.
Same sex married couples and their children are being purged
because they are seen as a threat to the eternal doctrine
of one man, one woman marriage. Gays can remain in the Church
If they promise not to have intimate relationships with the same
sex. These gays are not slaves, conversos, Moriscos, or
polygamists, they’re just eunuchs. You can see why
the Church’s prophets are upholding the principle of one man,
one woman marriage can’t you?
Now that we understand why Southern plantation owners,
Spanish monarchs, Catholic popes, the United States
Congress, the German Nazi Party and modern day Mormon
prophets acted the way they did, it’s easy to support their
decisions isn’t it? Or, is it?
