Mormon Church Mildly Ashamed Over Boyd K. Packer Saying God Would Never Intentionally Create Homos

Evidently not so proud that Boyd K. Packer claimed god would never punish mankind by making some people gay, LDS has toned down the second-in-command's anti-gay rhetoric in the official version of his Sunday speech. 'Cause who needs a historical record of Packer saying the lord would never let anybody be a fag?

Jesus’ General delivers more pearls of wisdom from LDS Elder Boyd K. Packer

Here’s just one of many reasons to hit the tip jar of Jesus’ General. He unearthed some precious gems uttered by LDS Apostle Boyd K. Packer.

Apparently, God went on a rant about homosexualism the last time they got together, because that was the subject of Elder Packer’s conference talk last weekend. You can watch or read it at Pam’s place, but essentially he said: homosexualism is a choice; it can be cured; and it’s a wickedness that shouldn’t be legal.

Inasmuch as the blogs are all abuzz with Elder Packer’s talk, I thought it might be interesting to go back and provide a few quotes of things he said in other talks. It’ll help you get a full measure of one of the Church’s most powerful Apostles–he’s next in line to become the Prophet if he outlives the current one.

You’ll have to surf over for the rest, but I had to share these apparent messages from God that Packer has emitted:

We’ve always counseled in the Church for our Mexican members to marry Mexicans, our Japanese members to marry Japanese, our Caucasians to marry Caucasians, our Polynesian members to marry Polynesians. The counsel has been wise.

I am for protecting the rights of a woman to be a woman, a feminine, female woman; a wife and a mother.

Stephen Colbert: ‘I Was A Corn Packer’

Stephen
The blogosphere has spent the last day or so critiquing Stephen Colbert's unusual performance in front of the House Judiciary Committee yesterday. While his jokes were, at the very least, amusing, he did give us a few groan-worthy doozies. In particular, one joke Colbert made in front of Iowa Rep. Steve King about gay Iowans fell remarkably flat.

During the hearing, King commented to Colbert about a video shown at the hearing. King said Colbert was unpacking corn instead of packing it during his trip to the farm. King said he presumed the film was run backward because that was counter-productive to getting the corn to market.

Colbert said he didn't understand the statement, but explained that he was packing corn, even iced it down. Colbert went on to say, "I know it's offensive, because corn packer is a derogatory term for a gay Iowan."

Funny or unfunny? You decide.

Watch Colbert's opening statements here and watch him deliver the corn packer joke, AFTER THE JUMP.
