Oh man. Ask any Mormon why they have no problem with breeding large families.
Ask Dan Laffingly, perhaps, and see if you get an honest answer. Somewhere in
my archives I have California senators saying that they should go ahead and
clear-cut all of California's redwood trees because his gods are going to
wonder why we didn't use all the resources "given" him.
When I was with my mother (a Mormon cultist) many years ago I got to learn
first-hand their belief that they must breed like rats to "get babies out of
heaven and bring them to Earth." I learned first-hand that they believe over-
population doesn't exist and will never exist because their deities are going
to come before it can.
Their beliefs are set to music, in fact, in a play that was quite popular among
Mormons. The title was something like, "Saturday's Warrior" or something like
that. (Laffingly might know the actual title.) Nearly all the major aspects
of their cult's beliefs were offered in the play.
The play has "babies" waiting in heaven to be born to families they've already
chosen. Before a family member is "born" to the good Mormon parents below on
Earth, the remaining family members in heaven talk about how soon they'll all
get to see each other soon and how much they all love each other and no end of
During the play the Mormon children who get born go through all kinds of
"trouble" in their "test" on earth. All of it set to music. One guy who wants
to fuck the young Mormon girl sings with a crowd of the unwashed:
This is the summer of fair weather
and I know a place where we can get it together
We'll get it together where ever you want it to go
Building a world with no more fences...
The song is about the ideological ignorance of youth which seeks immediate
gratification of sex urge with moral anarchy. The "test" set before the young
Mormon girl is to resist the temptations of sex.
On the need to breed without reguard for population controls, the play
addressed that issue as well. Once again we're up in heaven listening and
watching the "babies" crying and lamenting about their Mormon "parents" on
Earth. They decided to stop having children because of the uncertain future
due to crime, strife, pollution and all. The children left in heaven are not
stranded, however. No, that would not be a good aspect of the Mormon religion
to try to sell the ignorant. Instead, the "unwanted" babies have to be born to
other parents on Earth.
"You said we would always be together!"
The players break into song again, and once again it's the evil unwashed of the
world and the ignorance of youth speaking out against god's plan. The song is
about over population and the pressing need for zero population growth. The
evil singers convince the parents that they did the right thing by "abandoning"
their children in heaven and "breaking up their families."
'Pretty good, huh? Breaking up a family by not giving birth?
Another mini-story in the play was the lead male child who is looking around
for a star to navigate by. He runs with gangs, as I recall, or whatever the
white-middle-class thug culture was in the 1970's.
Another mini-story in the play was two "elders" -- house-to-house preachers
that Mormons send to plague the innocent. All Mormon male youths are expected
to "go on a mission" and the family is supposed to set aside money for it. In
the play these elders are depressed because they haven't had much luck "saving"
The lead male children and the elders meet in a park and probably the best song
in the whole play takes place at that point.
"Look, elder! There's that man. Every day we've come
into this park, he's been on that bench drawing."
And the other says,
"Well, better late than never, elder!"
The song went something like,
"I take some paper in my hand
and with a pencil draw a man.
A dream of who I'd really, really like to be
a tall a nobel firey youth
who's not afraid to die for truth
A warrior of great nobility
But who am I? Just a wandering kid!
A cipher on a wall, not even brave at all
And where's my faith that I intend to die for?
This is repeated with many different variations... "Who's tall and straight,
but best of all he's free!"
Interestingly enough the play also talks a bit about the highly occult and
secret rituals which take place in their temples when the male is married to
the female. Mormons are told that they knew everything before "coming to
Earth" but that a "veil" has been placed before them which keeps them ignorant
on Earth. Once they're dead, however, the veil is lifted and they remember
Part of that occultism is a deviniation device employed in their temples during
marriage. It's rather like a compass, from what I've been told, and it has
some occult use. At that time they may be given their "true" names so that,
when they're dead and their "true" names are called out, they'll know when to
answer. The song at that time goes something like:
"Feelings of forever come so very strong
they follow us like jewels that light the path behind
calendars of time we almost knew
that trembled in a lamp much brighter than the sun
I recall the morning you arose,
shining like a star on an endless sea of sand
And the tender child in your arms,
as the compass drew us out I took your hand
And now we lift the veil and try to understand,
reach for what we were before we were
to finally come again back to the start
where we began
Something's at the gate and rushing through
memories of a former life that we knew
calendars of time we almost knew
the feelings are so strong and coming through
The play, on the whole, was quite well done and the songs were wonderful. (I
would like to get a copy of the record, in fact.) The whole set of bizarre,
occult beliefs is set to music and might be a "must have" for anyone who wants
to understand Mormon occultism. The play is extremely dishonest, of course,
and a tool of propaganda but it's still quite useful for understanding the
ls> What scripture do they distort to support that non-biblical concept?
It's called, "The Book of Mormon."
