Yeah. Sharing this during LDS general conference with a backdrop of LDS missionaries is just asking for a fight and is pretty classless. I was a missionary for two years and if people said no, I'd move on. Believe it or not, some people do believe in respect and compassion.
@veritus, Believing in respect and compassion? I call bullshiiiiiiiit!
@veritus, I'm not mean to those people, just not interested. I have had one of them talk to me for 30 min and I never interrupted to say I wasn't interested. He seemed happy to tell me, so I let him finish.
@veritus, if its not okay to make fun of everything, it's not okay to make fun of anything.
@veritus, same I was a drug dealer for years and if kids didn't want drugs I'd move on!
@veritus, my girlfriends a Mormon and I went to her church for way over a year, but a lot of people there were just way too pushy about it, I don't go anymore although we're still together
@veritus, The fvck is LDS?
@CriTiKa1, Latter Day Saints
@McGigglesnorf, I agree with you. They come to our door and dad shuts it in their face. I have to run, open the door, and apologize. Then I let them talk to me. I'm Christian, so I respect what theyre doing. I just already have a religion. (:
@veritus, you're getting butthurt, it's a joke, the picture was a bad example, calm down and move on
@veritus, thanks for standing for what you believe in. I was also a missionary for 2 years, and it was awesome, while there were a lot of dickheads... I enjoyed serving the people I got in contact with. Whether they are LDS or not, as missionaries, we are there to serve and help the community. We don't push anything either, we share our believe, and you can say no or yes. People have they free will to accept or reject what we share. Thanks and good day.
@veritus, I'm leaving for my mission in a few months. Where did you serve?
@Sir Pikachu III, I served in the Netherlands Dutch and Portuguese speaking.
@McGigglesnorf, Mad props to you. But are you by chance Canadian, eh?
@1Reyesda, and veritus. I served in Spokane. Best time of my life.
@veritus, represent my Mormon brother!
@veritus, yeah I'm going on my mission starting this summer to Texas Houston East - Spanish. And I went to priesthood session in Salt Lake today for the first time which was really awesome
@CriTiKa1, hey I accidentally downvoted you... Sorry
@kamakaziK, I served in Fresno, CA. The same, best time of my life!
@McGigglesnorf, what really sucks is when you let someone just talk to you about God for 30 minutes and at the end he asks you for money
@veritus, Too bad it's not more than some.
@veritus, oh wow! I thought I was the only Mormon here
So night shift I asked my crush out this morning....she said yes. Life couldn't be better. Keep on trucking
@skinnywill, Awesome! Best of luck to you two! :)
Except one of you is doing something illegal
Yes, Mormons, the most secretive church that knocks on your door to tell you every thing about it.
@angrynarwhals, we wear capes as well
@angrynarwhals, Invite them in for a "drink".
@angrynarwhals, don't forget our "horns" haha silly people.....
@angrynarwhals, or our magic underwear! I am Mormon and proud!
I live next to a Mormon church and they give out free lemonade if you talk to them.
So a religion that branches out to you so you can be cared for. Cause if you notice after missionaries ask about the church they ask "can we help you with anything today". We want to help you jerks and you continue to bash us? Whos the bad guy here?
@bubbles the stripper, It can get annoying when people are so anti religious they won't accept your help. There's a few people who won't even talk to me at school because I'm religious. :/
@bubbles the stripper, Everyone assumes a missionary is just going to shove their religions down our throats, so no one likes to deal with them. Also, some people simply don't want a religion.
@bubbles the stripper, just like a religious person might not want somebody going to their house and saying "I would like to talk to you about evolution," a non religious person doesn't like it when someone comes to their door talking about religion. Most people aren't complete jerks about it either.. At least the people I know aren't.
@Cocconut Head, thats a good point and thats also why lds missionaries have stopped going door to door alot. But there also there to give service and most people wont go look for help if help doesnt go to them.
I never realized how many LDS people were on this app. Makes me happy.
Aahhh, nothing like a heated religious discussion to bring the Funny Pics community together. BTW, I'm LDS and I found the picture amusing.
I'm suppose to go on a mission...
@Deluxe 24, good for you man! Hope your headed to some where cool! Unless your not going then thats still good.
@Deluxe 24, do it man. You'll love it and you learn to love so many new people. It's absolutely the best.
@Deluxe 24, dude so am I but I'm not sure if I want to go. I'm kinda hesitant about it
@Deluxe 24, you're not supposed to, you're privileged to
@RebelWithoutaCause, well I would suggest talking yourself into it. A mission isn't all fun and games but it's the most growing you'll ever do. Spiritually, mentally etc. maybe physically too ya never know. But it is so beneficial in life in my experience

It isn't awkward until they actually buy the drugs.
Stuckpixel what have you done...
Atheism, by definition, IS a religion, and it is the only one I've ever had pushed on me.
@American, Religion: "The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods" -Oxford Ductionary
@American, Athiesm " Disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods." -Oxford Dictionary
@Borat, I'm not sure what you're trying to say with this, but a group of people who believe there is no god, is still a group with religious beliefs. Those just being that there is no god.
@Halo2552, Athiesm is not a religous belief. Just as not believing in Roman mythology is not a religion, not beleiving in other gods is also not a religion. Just because it is a commonly accepted belief, does not make not believing in it also a belief.
@Borat, it doesn't matter what you don't believe in. Believing there is no higher power is a belief in of itself. Its like nothing is nothing, which therefore makes "nothing" something.
@Halo2552, My argument is that Athiesm should not be considered a systematic belief just as not believing in the tooth fairy is not considered a systematic belief. The only reason people say athiesm is a belief is because the existance of God is such a strongly accepted subject. All athiesm is, is not beleiving in a higher power.
@Borat, fair enough. This is probably the last comment all leave on this thread since this isn't really a big deal. But I believe agnostic is what a lot of people mean when they sy they are Atheist. Atheism is the belief in no higher power (sorry for repeating), but agnostic is really just not caring.
@Grave Warden Agdayne, exactly what Borat said. Best not to tell other people what they believe when you have no idea what you are talking about.
@Halo2552, I think people know what they are saying when they say they are atheists.. It's not uncommon for non religious people to know the difference between agnostic and atheist.
Religion is like a penis. You can have one and be as proud of it as you'd like. Just don't shove it down my throat.
@RetardedGyarados, that's an OLD pic on here. The only difference is it said "don't shove it down my children's throats"
@RetardedGyarados, haven't heard that one before
@RetardedGyarados, There's a rebuttal to that one
@RetardedGyarados, Mr. FISH? Is that you?
@RetardedGyarados, it'd be a honor and a privilege for you to have mine.
@RetardedGyarados, that joke is like a hooker's vag. It's over used and it kind of stinks..
Anyone else hide when you see them coming? I mean no disrespect to those people but I don't want anything they are giving.
I always say that I'm a man wh0re and dont know if their God accept this xD i love their faces after they hear that
There people who aren't religious and don't do drugs as well.
Hello there, have you accepted Charlie Sheen as our lord and savior?
@Faptain, I thought about it but realized I'd probably die of an overdose if I partook of his blood.
When a Muslim or a Jew tries to spread their religion, they get bashed at and penalized for "trying to push foreign ideas down our throats." But when a white Christian does it, suddenly I'm the bad guy for not being interested!!
@Cocconut Head, true, just how everyone can make fun if a Christian, right?! But god forbid, if anyone say the truth about, Muslims, Gays and atheist!!!! Stop acting like a victim, and simply don't be a douche. Do you want respect? Give respect!
@1Reyesda, I'm not saying its ok for people to make fun of each other because it isn't. It's just annoying how Christians (other people as well but mostly Christians in my experience) think they can bash on all these thee beliefs and then they act like victims of a horrible crime when other people do the same thing to them! It's stupid that people are so obsessed with having the most followers in their religion. It's not a competition and 99% of people aren't going to convert if you tell them to anyway.
@1Reyesda, all I am trying to say is that it's annoying how Christians get special treatment just because most people follow that faith and how other people are monsters of they try to speak for themselves. I am not trying to play victim and I do treat the people who try to spread religion at my door with respect. In fact I usually let them speak and offer them beverage as a sign of hospitality. I am sorry if I came off like I was playing victim. Or whatever.
@1Reyesda, and I checked your like victory and being a down vote troll isn't cool. Just saying.
@Cocconut Head,first, have you paid attention to the news? Or what's going on? Nowadays being a Christian means, being a bigot, a racist, a dickhead, etc. so don't give me that crap about us playing the victim. Second, you are generalizing from your "experience" with Christians. Should I do the same about Muslims? And think they are all terrorists? (Btw, one of my good friends is a Muslim).
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is pretty much a pyramid scheme. Next time you're paying 10% tithe, think about why recruiting (aka "spreading the word") is so much a part of the church. You too can have $alvation!
@Poser Pete, wat
@Poser Pete, ummm yeah as a mormon girl thats complete and uder bull. One none of our church leaders our paid to be there. Two you dont have to pay tithing to get in to heaven. We pay tithing so we can build our temples and churches so we have a place to worship. So yeah. Stop being stupid.
@Poser Pete, hate to break it to you Peety, any hierarchal organization looks like a triangle or pyramid if you draw it out. But to address what you think you are saying not one member gets any sort of bonus or promotion or otherwise compensated for any person that may join the LDS faith.
@bubbles temples, Sounds like you are at the bottom of the pyramid then...
@Cdr William T Riker, ask the church to show you where your money goes
@Poser Pete, it's a pretty flat pyramid then. With all members being at the bottom, then buildings (both maintaining and building new ones) next then humanitarian services, then education programs being at the top. There's your pyramid for ya
@kamakaziK, When of of those buildings is a $2 billion mega mall the "church" has turned into something else.
@Poser Pete, and what building would that be exactly?? Mall??
@Poser Pete, dafuq is wrong with you?!? Do you even know what you are saying? LDS members believe in tithing, you believe in paying your pastor, and making sure he has a nice house and a nice car. Morton's tithing goes to help their members and the less unfortunate. Have you even checked their financial reports at the end of the year? Those are public and are waiting for you to read them has your pastor showed you were your money is going?!? Didn't think so...
@kamakaziK, "Built for roughly $2 billion, the City Creek Center stands directly across the street from the church’s iconic neo-Gothic temple in Salt Lake City. The mall includes a retractable glass roof, 5,000 underground parking spots, and nearly 100 stores and restaurants, ranging from Tiffany’s to Forever 21."
@1Reyesda, Not sure what part of the world you live in, but the Mormon church has not posted US financials in over 50 years. They choose to keep things private. (I also find it odd that that you assume I give money to a pastor. SPCA is the only group that gets my money)
@Poser Pete, I see you know how to copy paste from google. Good on ya. You say because the church tore down old buildings to create a newer more attractive building to Utah's most visited area and the headquarters of the church, it has turned into something else?? I don't get it I guess. And it has the benefit of making profit. Cool deal. First off, no tithing funds were used, the project was financed through other real estate monies the church had. Also the church has more members outside the U.S than in it. And most of the tithing funds come from idaho, Utah, Arizona and California cause not all members pay tithing. So it makes sense that the church would utilize other means of money making to support our building up the church in other parts of the world. Like the building of chapels in Gauna and such places and translating our written works to other languages. This world operates on money now. We don't pay tithing with sheep and cattle like Abraham did.
@Poser Pete, but we still try to follow the same holy laws and serve our fellow men the best we can. Next time there's a natural disaster, why don't you take a trip there and count how many yellow T-shirts there are that say Mormon Helping Hands. Those people aren't paid but who pays for the water, food and medical supplies that they are distributing. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I did that once and the Mormons ended up buying a dime bag form me :)
Didn't realize how many Mormons were on here..
Religion is stupid
