Mormons: Mixed Marriages Equal Death - Racism Imbedded

A snippet from: Black Skin and the Seed of Cain, by Bill McKeever

In a speech entitled Race Problems as they Affect the Church, LDS Apostle Mark E. Petersen asked, and answered, the following hypothetical question:

"If I were to marry a Negro woman and have children by her, my children would all be cursed as to the priesthood. Do I want my children cursed as to the priesthood? If there is one drop of Negro blood in my children, as I have read to you, they receive the curse. There isn't any argument, therefore, as to inter-marriage with the Negro, is there?" (p.21.)

Brigham Young taught a much greater extreme. In a sermon given on March 8, 1863, Young stated,

"Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so" (Journal of Discourses, 10:110).

No easier way to say it.  Mormonism is based on the belief that their Mormon God cursed the entire black race, and any mixing of the black race.

The full article is informative. Goes to show why I feel that naming their flagship university after a racist, Brigham Young, is a questionable motive.

How would we feel is someone had a Josepf Mengele - the Nazi Angel of Death - University, a David Koresh University, or Jim Jones University?

Include Adolf Hitler University - the Mormons baptized him into their cult. What's up with that?

If the Mormon cult celebrates racists by studying their biographies, naming prominent university after them, delayed giving the priesthood after surrendering to political pressures, - then Mormon Prophet like Johnny Carson raising the envelop to his head and says - "God speaks, parrots listen, due to reasons beyond our control we have to give blacks a little bit of priviledges, so we will give them the priesthood - the Mormon God has spoken..." Reminds me of a Scooby Doo cartoon.

The only reasons Mormons would push for membership in the KKK was Mormons don't believe in the cross, racism and prejudice and discrimination, yes.  Burning crosses - no.
