I have a friend who lives in Utah who I talk with a lot on IM. She tells me a lot about her family which is all Mormon, though she chose to become Atheist. Her family gives her a hard time because of it, and constantly shouts at her for not being Mormon and tells her that she will go to Hell. She also tells me that they sometimes threaten her, though she doesn’t tell me that they are actually abusive. What exactly would she have to do to legally become an adult and get rid of them?
she can always tell them that if God was angry with her - like He was after Jesus appeared to the Hebrews (after his death, of course) who migrated to the Americas in 200 BC - he would curse her and turn her skin “black.” since shes still white, then obviously god is not upset with her.
And [God] had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people, the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. And thus saith the Lord God; I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities.” (2 Nephi 5:21)
Yes, the Mormon book actually claims that Native Americans are A) Hebrews that migrated sometime around 200 BC (the archeological record must be the work of Satan); and b) were white until God cursed them. What it says about the (white) author who thinks God sees dark skin tone as a curse says alot, dont ya think?
Anyway, tell her to tell her family that as long as she is white, the Mormon god still loves her.
