Racist Quotes From The Book Of Mormon (Part XXV)

"And again, when they thought about upon the Lamanites (people of color), who were their brethren, of their sinful and polluted state, they were filled with pain and anguish for the welfare of their souls."

-- Mosiah 25:11 (Book of Mormon)

This verse is the last verse that I will deal with in the book of Mosiah. Mosiah has the second most racist quotes in the Book of Mormon. Come back to my blog in the next few days when I begin on the book with the most racist quotes within the Book of Mormon. The next book has almost as many racist quotes than the rest of the books combined.

Look at the negative association with this verse. It associates skin color with sin, with pollution, with pain, and with anguish due to the eternal destination pointing down instead of up. This verse is a farce. Heaven is full of people from all ethnic groups. Are you beginning to see why former Gov. Mitt Romney does not talk about his Mormon faith? Mormons believe that only White people will go to Heaven.
