Break with Boy Scouts Takes Mormons to New Heights of Hypocrisy

Headline: “Mormons Break All Ties with Boy Scouts”
(Excerpts) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said on May 8 2016, it will sever all ties with the Boy Scouts of America, ending a century-old tradition deeply ingrained in the religious life of Mormon boys….
Church officials did not cite specific Scouts policy changes that spurred the split, but the two groups have increasingly clashed over values in recent years, particularly after the Boy Scouts’ move to include openly gay troop leaders.
  • The announcement also came less than a week after the Boy Scouts announced it would be changing its flagship name to Scouts BSA, promoting its decision last year to welcome girls into the program for the first time.
IndieDems Comment:
The Mormon Church is now, hands down, the leading example of pure Christian hypocrisy among our mainstream Christian denominations. It’s now surged ahead of its main challenger for first place, the Catholic Church. As always, the Southern Baptist Convention is close behind.
To understand the magnitude of the Mormon Church’s hypocrisy, look at what it considers normal as it turns its back on those “abnormal” Scouts for daring to grant equality to gays. Mormons–most prominently, Senator Orrin Hatch–have given either overt or tacit support to Donald Trump as he and his Republicans have waged war against America’s basic moral and democratic values.  Here is a partial list of what Trump has done that Mormons have endorsed, as they consign the Scouts to outer darkness:
  • Lived his adult life in total defiance of Jesus’ Golden Rule and God’s Commandments not to lie or commit adultery
  • Bragged about sexually assaulting women and called them bimbos
  • Demeaned John McCain’s military service
  • Mocked a physically handicapped person
  • Incited his followers to violence.
  • Used ethnic and religious slurs
  • Praised neo-fascists marching in a Nazi-like torch light parade in Charlottesville shouting “Jews will not replace us”
  • Called a Miss Universe “Miss Piggy”
  • Approved Howard Stern’s calling Ivanka “a piece of a–“
  • Made misogynist remarks about women’s physical appearance
  • Belittled a Gold Star American mother
  • Praised the murderous thug Putin
  • Called foreign countries “s—holes”
  • Accused Obama of engaging in a criminal conspiracy to hide his real birthplace
  • Lied about undocumented immigrants being mostly rapists and criminals
  • Supported a child sex pervert and brazen defier of the rule of law for the U.S Senate
  • Pardoned Sheriff Arpaio, who defied court orders and whose treatment of prisoners resembled Nazi concentration camps
  • Bilked innocent people of their money in a scam involving a phony university
All the above–all of it–is what Mormons consider normal, as they cloak themselves in self-righteous hypocrisy for opposing the Scouts’ exercise of the Golden Rule.
