Mormon missionary gets brutal lesson on his church’s racism from black father

Published

on

As anyone who’s seen The Book of Mormon knows, in 1978 God changed his mind about black people.

Or at least that’s what the Church of Latter Day Saints teaches, according to the song sang by Elder Kevin Price.

Having taught that black people are cursed and subhuman for 100-plus years, in accordance with its founder’s sternly held beliefs, has kept the church overwhelmingly white. It also makes for some awkward conversations when the church’s missionaries approach black people who understand Mormon mythology.

One man recently captured his encounter with two Mormons who approached him, making them take out their Book of Mormon and read a passage condemning blacks.

“And he 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.”

He then told them to go away and stop peddling their racist nonsense to his family.

“The brothers came here to teach my family about God,” he says. “Because of their sins against God, he turned them black. You came to my house, to teach my family that God turned us black because we sinned against God,” he said. “That’s not going to be acceptable at all.”

“That’s not what we teach, you may be taking it a little bit out of context as well,” the white Mormon claimed.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC's "The Last Word."

"The attorney general, from the moment he walked into this job, has behaved in a -- as a ruthless, relentless political hack and a thug and who has behaved not as attorney general of the United States," Heilemann said.

"He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump's behalf at every opportunity," he added.

Trump welcomed Russia’s Sergey Lavrov to the White House — to humiliate us all

Published

on

Despite the fact that President Donald Trump still refuses to have Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington for an officials meeting — a topic at the center of the scandal driving Trump’s impeachment — the White House hosted Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday.

And while Lavrov was honored with his second private Oval Office meeting (the first one was a cataclysmic disaster) and a press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the foreign minister took his opportunity here to repeatedly humiliate the United States.

United States, Mexico, Canada finalize Donald Trump’s USMCA trade deal

Published

on

The United States, Mexico and Canada signed a deal Tuesday to finalize their new trade agreement, paving the way to ratification after more than two years of arduous negotiations.

However, the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump in the US Senate would likely delay Congressional ratification of the agreement until next year, said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

In reality, it is the second time the three countries have triumphantly announced the conclusion of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the deal meant to replace the 25-year-old NAFTA, which President Donald Trump complains has been "a disaster" for the US.
