Smackdown: New LDS Policy Punishing Children If Their Parents Are Gay

Smackdown

Posted November 6th, 2015

What’s worse than murder and rape? The only sin so powerful it punishes innocent children for the “sins” of their parents even if, you know, that doesn’t sound like Mormon Doctrine… In this episode, Bob, Matt, Randy, and Scott discuss the new policy changes from the Mormon Church that set apart homosexuality as a sin unlike any other.

Children of same-sex married people must now be 18 to be baptized and must disavow their parents’ marriage. Follow along as we smackdown the changes to LDS Handbook 1.

Praise to the Stone

Posted August 6th, 2015

Matt, Kristin, and Jake sing their praise to the world’s bestest magic seer stone. Thanks to Andrew Ainsworth for the lyrics.

New LDS Hymn: Praise to the Stone
VERSE 1
Praise to the stone that was found by the Prophet!
For treasure seeking it first was employed
Though to the buried loot it never did lead him
The stone aided Joseph in a greater ploy

CHORUS:
Hail to the seer stone that glowed like a Lite Brite!
Wizards and Hobbitses, now seek it in vain!
Magically guiding the Prophet’s dictation
Released from the vault now enjoys worldly fame

VERSE 2
Praise to the stone that made the gold plates superfluous!
No record needed, the words just appeared
Nephi and Mormon their labors were wasted
The stone bore their words when Joseph into it peered
(CHORUS)

VERSE 3
Praise to the stone in the hat of our Seer!
Rock-solid proof that folk magic is real
Scrying we now know is pow’red by the Priesthood
True version of Saruman’s Palantir
(CHORUS)

VERSE 4
Praise to the stone chocolate-colored and egg-shaped!
Who now can deny Brother Joseph’s great claims?
How could our Prophet make up such a story?
God wants our faith not the use of our brains
(CHORUS)
