By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
The greatest Mormon blog in the universe.
Fine. Have it your way.
What was the problem with the pictures? Admittedly, I saw them only briefly, so maybe I missed something obvious. Oh ye who are easily offended, explain yourselves!
Those familiar with the site will know that the poll is mocking LDS folk doctrine regarding Cain and issues of race. If you are coming here for the first time you might take it in a different way and feel that the poll is offensive.
I just viewed the results. Every single ad was for sex. Is it just me?
It’s just you, Jared, you pervert! The ads are a reflection of your web-surfing habits. You are hereby EXPOSED!
P.S. Just kidding. I have the ads too.
Yes. I saw ads for scriptures, a girl’s home, and intructions on how to cut vegtables properly.
Still not seeing the problem with the Cain photos …
RFLMAO! Funniest damn thing I’ve seen in a long time. Sweet.
I’m just upset that Candy Cain wasn’t an option.
“LDS folk doctrine regarding Cain and issues of race”
Well, NDBF Gary is still preaching it here
When you copy shortcuts from blogspot.com you have to edit them or they don’t work. You have to add a lower case “c” right after the pound sign and before the comment number. In this case “# c113896669791774770″) Then it works like this.
And it is only fair to point out that recommending a BYU Studies article about pre-1978 priesthood denial to blacks is NOT the same as forming one’s own fundamentalist church that continues the denial. My interest in the former can in no way be linked to any illusions of the latter.
Thanks for the tip. Are you saying attributing the Mark of Cain to those of African descent was an error? If so, I apologize for my misunderstanding and the insinuation of bigotry.
I believe the following manifestation was a spiritual rather than physical one:
THE LIFE OF DAVID W. PATTEN
By L.A. Wilson
. . . of Cain to Brother David W. Patten in the State of Tennessee, about which you wrote to me, I will say that according to the best of my recollection it was in the month of September, 1835.
It was in the evening, just twilight, when Brother Patton rode up to my father’s house, alighted from his mule and came into the house. The family immediately observed that his countenance was quite changed. My mother having first noticed his changed appearance said: â€œBrother Patten, are you sick?â€ He replied that he was not, but had just met with a very remarkable personage who had represented himself as being Cain, who murdered his brother Abel. He went on to tell the circumstances as near as I can recall in the following language:
â€œAs I was riding along the road on my mule 1 suddenly noticed a very strange personage walking beside me. He walked along beside me for about two miles. His head was about even with my shoulders as I sat in my saddle.
He wore no clothing, but was covered with hair. His skin was very dark. I asked him where he dwelt and he replied that he had no home, that he was a wanderer in the earth and traveled to and fro. He said he was a very miserable creature, that he had earnestly sought death during his sojourn upon the earth, but that he could not die, and his mission was to destroy the souls of men. About the time he expressed himself thus, I rebuked him in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by virtue of the Holy Priesthood, and commanded him to go hence, and he immediately departed out of my sight. When he left me I found myself near your house.â€
There was much conversation about the circumstances between Brother Patton and my family which I don’t recall, but the above is in substance his statement to us at the time. The date is, to the best of my recollection, and I think it is correct, but it may possible have been in the spring of l836, but I feel quite positive that the former date is right.
Hoping the above all be satisfactory to you and answers your purpose, I am with the kindest regards, as ever,
Your friend and Brother,
A. O. Smoot
Note to BCC Admin:
Yeah, we need to find another blog poll host. Ahem.
The ads were the funniest part of the whole thing.
Dark as in weathered from living 6000 years in the sun and wind? (Since obviously no-one will give him shelter…)
if black cain (who looks brown to me) got together with sugar cain would their offspring be brown sugar? would they move to paradise island and live a fantastic life amid the sunny palm trees singing “ebony and ivory” in the shade while drinking virgin mai tais (is there such a thing) watching the tv edited version of cocktail?
