Silly Sealings and Holy Horrors

The brethren got carried away with their keys to the "holy sealing power" in the Nauvoo days. They were sealing and adopting themselves to each other, to lots of women and to Biblical characters. They were sealing horses, cows and pigs to themselves, their wives and children. Wagons, tools, homes and all manner of precious things were all being sealed up. Latter Day Lampoon has discovered additional sealings, adoptions, crosses and connections and is posting them for the world to witness. In case you ever wondered what happens when two or more entities get crossed or sealed to each other by the power of God by mistake.....well, just read on.

Just complete this sentence with the subjects below. What do you get when you cross/seal ________with __________?

If Mormons can baptise dead Jews, why can't Jews circumcise dead Mormons?

After a Mormon has been dead for thirteen years, they can have a Barmitzvah for the dead too.

p.s. Any volunteers for circumcision by proxy? - 04/22/2004 - from Nephihaha

Mormon Temple Cap - Balmoral Bonnet

08/02/2003 - from former RC, former LDS

I think the temple and all its associated rigamarole is just as ridiculous as everyone else who's commented here thinks it is. But I can't believe no one else has picked up on this point before. Guess none of you are Celtophiles!

Yes, the men's temple headgear resembles a baker's hat, BUT, remember that all the temple ceremonial was cribbed from Freemasonry. In particular, it was taken from Scottish Rite Freemasonry. Sooooooo, use your imagination. The hat is simply a lame, very low-quality copy of a Tam O'Shanter (or, more properly, a Balmoral Bonnet).

The Balmoral bonnet is the traditional Scottish military cap that many of the pre war Scottish militia's used. Many photos of the 79th New York Highlanders (among others), used the Balmoral.

Hmmm. So, the temple endowment is a "restoration" of things from ancient Israel??? OH, REALLY! Then why are the male participants arrayed like 1800's Highlanders in their bonnets and green fig-leaf kilt-aprons?

Blazing through the veil

06/11/2003 - anon

It is so cathartic to read others' experiences. I too feel so let down by the "wonders" of the temple. My husband is a TBM (True Believing Mormon), and I pretend to be, but it is hard to pretend when I can't STAND what is supposed to be the epitome of Mormonism. Anyway, I have always wondered and fantasized about doing one of these things in there.

1. raising my hand when they say is anyone not ready to proceed (or whatever the heck they say at the beginning)

2. REFUSING to put the veil over my face. What would they do? Handcuff and lead me out? Dig thru my belongings and get my recommend?

3. Tapping the hammer three times, then just blazing through the veil Makes me smile just to think about doing it!!!!

It is a historical fact that Joseph Smith had a young Black woman sealed to him, not as a wife and not as a daughter, but as his servant. What a concept: Eternal Slavery!

If any of you out there really can not imagine this Black slave woman waiting on an exalted Joseph Smith forever in the exsistance beyond this life, then how can we be so damn certain about our own marriage and sealing for time and all eternity? I am an active Mormon and things like this bug the hell out of me. Cows and pigs, a little bit wierd but I can handle it. Slaves? - 04/24/2000 - anon
