We Are All Mormons!


We Are All Mormons

by Rabbi Nachum Shifren

We are living in an era of insanity! Witness the latest attempt to remake the nature of our country, founded and established on certain principles that have been the envy of the entire world. The latest assault on our country and its values comes in the form of vicious and criminal violence against the Mormon church in Westwood, California

Interesting how the selective self-righteous indignation on the part of the radical Gay activists is played out here: they bewail the blow to freedom and justice! But I thought we just had elections, where the majority of Californians expressed their views in a free and open manner. Are we not a nation of laws? Dare we relive the McCarthy era, where  Americans were harassed and threatened with the loss of their jobs for believing in a certain way? If the Gay radicals should have their way, untold numbers of Americans would live under the threat of the Gay-Lesbian “thought police,” where individuals that reject the Gay lifestyle would be sought out and have sanctions brought against them.

It’s bad enough for those working in the entertainment industry here in Los Angeles, where a fog of political correctness and a bending over backwards to accommodate, even promote Gay lifestyle is in full gear. Let none dare say that this type of activity is anathema to our country, our morality, and the  debauchery of our young people.

Let it be stated unequivocally: The radical Gay attack on the Mormons is the shot over the bow against the United States of America. There was a time when what a man did in his bedroom was sanctified between himself and God. Now we are being served an “in-your-face” smorgasbord of smut and licentiousness as being between people who only “want their civil rights.”

Hogwash! We are dealing with the equivalent of a moral takeover of the country that has as its bedrock a belief in God and His promise for humanity. They don’t want civil rights! What they desire is quasi Gay/Lesbian hegemony, where a huge “bookburning,” reminiscent of the Nazis, will purge any remnants of the “Christian, White, mainstream America” that has given ALL AMERICANS the most profound scope of freedom, liberty, and justice that Mankind has yet to experience.

People have perhaps wondered: why the Mormons? Answer: they are a small, yet vocal Christian minority. They have been selected by the mobs as vulnerable, a group that might not have such massive support among America’s Christians.

We who are friends of the Mormons, their patriotism, their family values, will not falter in our continued support of these dear Americans. Let us recall the Christian minister Niemoller, whose admonition during those dark years of Nazi Germany moved us to our core:

“When they came for the gypsies, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a gypsy. When they came for the homosexuals, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a homosexual. When they came for the Jews, I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Jew. Then they came for the Catholics, and I said nothing, because I wasn’t a Catholic……then they came for me, and there was no one left to defend me.”

My fellow Americans, in the coming battle for the heart and soul of America and everything we cherish, may this call to arms be the mantra of every concerned patriot:  “WE ALL ARE MORMONS!”

    I’m sorry that I will have to disagree with your statement “We are all Mormons!” I do however completely agree with the sentiment. We should not allow any group to be mistreated. Those who shout “Stop the Hate!” need to look at their own actions and attitudes.

    It’s not only happening in the USA, its everywhere except maybe Afghanistan and Iran.

    There is a current lie going around that we should not judge. This is rubbish, if you see harassment going on, like that cop getting sacked in your previous article, or a particular group of people, we should make a judgment and then act upon it.

    Evil prospers while good men do nothing.

    I’d like to give you all a bonk in the head for a lack of intellectual capacity to understand, close-mindedness and a lack writing style.

    I won’t even enumerate the false reasonings you posted in your article.

    BUT, its a good thing the world is not like you and you’re all not going to be present in the next generation. The world will be a much better place then.

    Pastor Curt, I agree that this is not a literal suggestion. I think it’s illustrative of the intent that this was written by a Jewish Rabbi, who obviously is not Mormon and who theologically probably has very little in common with Mormons. Although Beetle Blogger is not preferential one way or another with religions of the world, I really admired the sentiment Rabbi Nachum Shifren expresses here.

    The idea that we should be just as outraged over the Mormons being attacked or the Presbyterians, or the Catholics as we would be if it was our brothers and sisters of our own faith. An attack on one is an attack on all. This fight for marriage forces all of us to look beyond theological differences and realize the magnitude of what we’re up against here. During proposition 8, religious people of all faiths and beliefs banded together and as a result, we won.

    If we’re going to continue to win, we must continue to carry this sentiment with us going forward. United we Stand.

    This article was incredibly well written, and expressed some profound ideas that I think many should take the time to consider! Keep up the great work, Beetlebabee….thanks for keeping us informed! I love your site.

    Had the mormons not spent more than 3/4 of the money invested in the campaign to get the amendment passed, they wouldn’t be viciously attacked. Duh! Are we all idiots out there? These homophobic mormons are afraid that if the amendment is shot down that perhaps they may be forced by the government to perform gay marriages? Since when do gays get to take the back of the bus and the mormons get to ride on the front? Or do the mormons prefer that the gays not ride on the bus at all because they feel the gays are bad sick and wrong?

    I think you’d better check your facts on a couple of points, first is the amount donated by prop 8 supporters who happen to be LDS, the second is the first amendment. A campaign contribution is tantamount to an expression of free speech. Many religions and cultures freely used this freedom of speech to contribute to proposition 8. Singling one group out for persecution because you think they are unpopular is exactly what this post is talking about. If you’re angry, spend your energy in making your case to the people, not in persecuting the weakest. 2% of the population is not the reason prop 8 passed, you forgot the other 50%.

    We stand together, and the Mormons stand with us.

    An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us. We cooperated on 8 and we’re cooperating to the end. You’re not going to see the coalition crack now that the election is over. If proposition 8 is attacked, if the Blacks are attacked, if the Jews are attacked, I don’t care if the Mormons are attacked, we’re watching. I have to wonder how well you guys on the other side have thought this through. The well crafted face of the gay movement is showing it’s ugly side.

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend. It’s good enough for me.

    This was a very touching article. It tugs at my heartstrings to see all these people from different religions pull together to stand up for what they know is right.

    Hi there! I’m Audrey, and I posted a video on my youtube channel about the hate towards the Mormon church over the Prop 8 controversy. There was a link to your website in my “statistics and data” section for the video, and I think it meant that you’d used the embed code or link to my video. I looked for it and read some of your posts (very good!), but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I’m flattered that you wanted to use my video, though! I’m glad the message is being spread so far and wide! It’s gotten a more drastic response than I ever expected! I’m so glad I could help you in this cause in some way.

    Audrey! It’s great to meet you. I heard you were thinking of joining the DNA. We could use awesome video talent! I initially put it on the El Coyote story, but then it didn’t seem to fit, so I took it off and then forgot where I was going with it. You did a great job on it by the way!
