LDS Leader Boyd Packer Says Family is Under Attack, Tells Mormons to Resist 'The Tolerance Trend': VIDEO

Packer

LDS Apostle Boyd Packer told Mormons in a Saturday address to be wary of softening the church's stance on 'anti-family' issues, presumably homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

Said Packer:

"The family, The fundamental organization in time and eternity is under attack from forces seen and unseen...We need to be careful of the tolerance trend, so that we do not swallow it up and get swallowed up in it...The permissiveness afforded by the weakening of the laws of the land to tolerate and legalize acts of immorality does not reduce the serious spiritual consequence that is the result from a violation of God’s law of Chastity.”

  1. "We need to be careful of the tolerance trend, so that we do not swallow it up and get swallowed up in it"

    So his great fear is that Mormon boys will swallow it up....(LOL)....Swallow, boys, swallow!

  2. Another semi-senile old white man farts-out his 19th-cent. line of illogic. Actually, its a good thing; the more stuff like this that churches promote, the less relevant to the world they seem and the weaker they become. Pretty soon they will just disappear (One can hope, anyway.)

  6. Dear Mormons - when a "small" Mormon family has 5/6 kids, you guys are forgetting how the law of numbers works. Y'all crank out more gays than man can count. No dedication to magic underwear will make them straight.

  7. So, a guy named, Boy Packer, has a message for me about swallowing....

    Be right there.

  10. Marie Osmond is going to be summoned to the temple for a stern talking-to.

  11. "TOLERANCE TREND?" Comedy gold - like a line lifted right from a South Park episode!

  12. So glad to have escaped Mormonism.

  13. LDS Apostle? What kind of idiotic human being allows another human being to create a gradiose title out of their ass and suddenly be in control of their minds? I cannot understand this at all, though there are some supremely f@ckable Mormon boys out their. They make some very appealing DILFs too. Surprising how easily that magic underwear comes off.

  15. Yes Rick, completely take it personally and miss the point and support the bigot.

  16. i don't even know any liberal-minded folks who promote "tolerance" - tolerance is the scrap that weak-minded conservatives beg for, or offer. you know, like that mormon gay republican son of an anti-gay mormon republican Senator.

    and how well is that working for ya, eh sugar?

  17. No matter how hard they try, it is absolutely impossible for Republicans, Mormons, Catholics and/or Southern Baptists to hide their true feelings and beliefs and stay on the "kinder, gentler, we don't hate, we LOVE you" message!

  18. Isn't this the same church whose doctrine refused to allow blacks to become Mormon priests because their black skin was supposedly God's curse upon them? It wasn't until 1978 when the Mormons got a "new revelation from God" that black people weren't cursed afterall.

  19. You know, the legacy of Jesus is under attack by false religions that use His story to promote their Satanic heresy. Perhaps it's time for Christians to fight the "tolerance trend" that allows Mormons to wallow in a false religion? Sound like a good plan Mr. Packer?

  20. Yeek, that comment made my day!
    Why do hardline religions fear acceptance? As I've said before, homosexuality makes one of the best boogeymen to attract people to their religion. If you're a closeted lesbian and want to stay that way, what's more appealing a way to beard/compensate than a cult that will set you up with a husband who wants 4 or more children? Admittedly I see this more with the women in the evangelical Christian subculture than among Mormons; however I have known a few ridiculously closeted Mormon men.

  21. At least one thing is sure and true... Boyd is going to die, and so is Orrin. Hopefully their twisted antiquated ideas will die with them. The real shame is that Boyd thinks he is speaking for god(!!) There are huge threats to the family. GAY MARRIAGE IS NOT ONE OF THEM. Boyds time would be much better spent if he would use his position to address those problems, rather than using one minority population to scare the people he has dominion over. He really is a vile person.

  22. Don't forget, this was a church founded by a man that thought that marriage should be between one man and as many women as he could afford.

  23. I agree, we should not tolerate Mormons at all. Thanks for the great advice!

  24. I preferred the Mormons when they were openly racist. I dread the day they accept us. It will only make them bigger and richer.

  25. In the almost nine years since same-gender marriage became legal in Massachusetts, not one individual or family systematically has been harmed by secular equality. The fifteen old white men who run the LDS club are delusional. And Boyd is the worst when it comes to spewing unsubstantiated, fear-mongering nonsense.
