This Presidential Election and Brigham Young

Barak Obama will be the next president of the United States, the first black American president in history...

...I bet Brigham Young is turning over in his grave.

Brigham Young was an extremely racist LDS president who stated that (and I paraphrase) "the black man was created to serve the white man." Brigham Young was convinced that a black man would never hold the priesthood and that whites were meant to govern blacks, stating, "It will always be." Regarding the Civil War, Young prophesied that the South would win because god wanted slavery to continue. Well, now the blacks are allowed to hold the priesthood and a black man will lead the United States as its president.

So much for the prophetic mumbo jumbo of the false prophet, Brigham Young. Nothing he said concerning the black race has come true!

well, one thing you have to give him. He did say that black people are in fact black.

What's your point?

I was raised in Rexburg and remember whenever I was taught that LDS people are to love everyone, I always sarcastically inserted (except for blacks, women and gays) under my breath. Even in my younger years their actions spoke louder than their words.

But now it would appear that they are heeding some of Brigham Young's long lost racist teachings http://rawstory.com/news/2008/Idaho_students_chant_assassinate_Obama_on_1112.html

Exactly! I've wondered too why they claim that the gospel is for absolutely everyone and then they discriminate against anyone who is not white, male, straight, and Mormon.
