The Mormons " Tweaking " Their Scriptures Is Creating A Lot of Buzz

This is rather big and interesting news. From the Salt  Lake Newspaper see New Mormon scriptures tweak race, polygamy references -Scholars laud changes, say they bring a more accurate, fuller view of faith’s history.

Some of this seems a tad inside baseball which is ok since this is to a Utah audience. For instance I am still not sure what the doctrinal weight these new introductions have compared to the rest of the Mormon Scriptures and documents. Are they just sort of commentary or do they have weight of Church authority?

Also its seems all the scholars LOVES the new changes . Is there any dissent.

It is kind of interesting that with the importance of Mormons in the USA the first time I have heard there was was going to be some substantial revisions of the official text is after it's been done. Strange  since we have had a Mormon just run for President that the media outside large Mormon populations did not highlight this more.

It is definitely an interesting story.

However, base don how badly the media flubs religion stories, it's probably just as well that they didn't discover the story until it was done!

I feel so offended today. Mormons used to be called just that..Mormons...then it became Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints...Hmmmm.. Now they will write many times LDS (Christian) My daughter grew up with quite a few Mormons and a few were friends...particularly a young man who right before he left on his Mission told us that he was gay! He also shared with our family he did not believe in the LDS anymore and did not want to go on his Mission abd spread a bunch of lies. He went to keep peace in the family. For awhile he would write us "Normal" fun letters and tell us the fun things he had done and all about his weird partners..and how he could not wait to get home.. ....Just at the first of the year, (when Mormons decided to allow a young man of 18 to go on a mission)...and they are not speaking out on PROP 8 (anymore)...maybe numbers are dropping??? Anyhow, suddenly our friends e-mails changed to a diary of how they, basically, go after "Investigators" and truly..the whole goal of their two year mission IS TO BAPTIZE... I know these letters are watched by their leaders and this is now yet another way they are forcing themselves on OTHERS. He never responds..and here is the kicker...(He knows our family is Christian) He wrote very recently that one of the girls they were "Visiting" (but at one time she had converted to MORMON...actually was baptized in another church and was very happy with her choice. The two missionaries went NUTS and told her she will be excomunicated...Lost and doomed to Hell..and will be an APOSTATE!!!!!! This is so unreal to hear from a so called "Christian Faith" to teach such HATE towards another Christian Faith or ANY other faith for that matter...or any others choice!! We are told not to judge...there is only one Judge. I don't know how to react when he comes home. I have written him nothing at this point. This is how the MORMONS operate and feel we, as Christians through out the ages, are in their eyes FALSE, AND THE WHORES OF BABYLON!!!!! HOW DARE THEM!!! NOW they will be in ROME!
