    This pretty much defines the Mormon "God" -- a fallible being who makes mistakes, and hopes to learn from them.

    We saw that every time Joseph Smith came up with a "thus saith the Lord", then had to backtrack and "ok, THIS is 'what saith the Lord' now - forget that earlier proclaimation". (like the whole polygamy scam)
    And, for the record, I realize this [the quoted part in the box] was Michael Flournoy's somewhat facetious characterization of the Mormon position, but I thought it was pretty much spot on!

    (Let it be known that Flournoy was a Mormon who came to know the REAL Jesus in 2016)

    Why should the children of such parents be denied baptism? Punish the children?
