Mormon Defense Tactics

Mormon defenders use three different tactics to attempt to refute ex-Mormon bloggers like myself. They always come in the same order. The first is to try and refute the message with their scriptures or so-called evidence. When that doesn't work, they resort to step two, which is to accuse us of being full of hate and anger and ask why we waste so much time and energy tearing down someone else's religion. Many times, a defender will skip step one and go straight to step two. Step three, when their attempts to confound the agents of satan have failed, is to simply fall back on that precious testimony that no evidence or reasoning can refute.

On a fellow ex-Mormon blog, a person who calls themselves ksowell said in response to a rather amuzing post located at http://talkingtomyzelph.blogspot.com...

"How pathetic that you spend such a considerable amount of time on a boring blog about the obscurities about the Mormon religion. So you think they are weird or misdirected or something? So what - why don't you try funneling some positive energy into something worthwhile. Or maybe you just have nothing better to do. Sad. Now if you'd excuse me, I'm off to perform some miracles with my special priesthood power in my magic underwear. Maybe you can blog about that."

To answer the question that has baffled LDS believers for years: why do we spend our efforts tearing down someone else's religion?

Simple, because if your "religion" is a cult, it's not a religion at all. We ex-Mormons saw the real truth about the church and we got out of it. We "tear down" the LDS church because it is a cult and we want to help our family and friends get out.

Besides, what are you all so worried about? Your precious profit, Joseph Smith, boldly stated that "no unhallowed hand can stop this work." So my question right back at you is this: why do you TBM believers waste your time and energy refuting the team that will lose anyway? If the work will progress no matter what, then we are all wasting our time. So what do you care what we do with our time? Instead of spending all the time you do to refuting us, why don't you spend it building up the lard's kingdom by getting your home teaching done? I'd be willing to bet that 90% of the TBM's who challenge us haven't even done their home teaching for the month!

Ha! Ha! Losers! Hypocrites!

You're stuck in a mind-numbing cult. And that's why we actively blog against it. We are fighting to try to set your pathetic asses free!
