"Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining!"

That's what the LDS "Mormon" church does to keep its members compliant and in the dark. Examples: The Book of Abraham, the Salamander Letters, Joseph Smith's marriages to already-married women...the list goes on.

magical thinking

i've been reading about "magical thinking," and WOW! what an interesting phenomenon.  It's what makes cults (and Santa) possible.  It's believing in something despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.  It's what makes good little Mormons everywhere (i hope to lose the anger and sarcasm soon, by the way).  Then again, they aren't allowed to read the actual facts about the Church that disprove it, and if they do happen to come across it, they are told it's false and just another attempt by Satan to thwart the Church. 

i like magical thinking, though, so i think i'll continue it to a degree.  i think i'll believe in witchcraft and wizardry and hope to wind up at Hogwart's someday.  That would freaking ROCK!

  1. I call it mental gymnastics.

    Good luck with that anger and sarcasm. Maybe you'll have better luck than I have. But, you know, I think 20 years of brainwashing and attempts to squelch reason and logic warrant at least 20 years of anger and sarcasm. 10 down. 10 to go.

    :-) Enjoy your witchcraft!
