In the theocratic state of Utah people are indoctrinated rather than educated: This is a state where the explosion of democracy and diversity has not reached any positive manifestation, except for the few blacks who are being bought into the dogmatic pretensions of Mormon religion, through propaganda and all kinds of means of mind control. Gladys Knight, the African American singer, is being shown as an icon for Mormon conversionism among the people of color. A random research of the African American population in Utah shows that most of the few blacks who were born in Utah are not members of the Mormon religion. When asked why, they tell that they had extreme experiences of racism and racial repudiation in their childhood in Utah. They are not convinced that this is “the only true church" on earth.
But, those African American Utah residents remain underreported in the bombastic propaganda that the Mormon Church presents to the world about the wonders of their mystic conversionism. In Utah, people are literally losing the right to think on their own as the Mormon Prophet continues to assert his reactionary policy in his very personalized blatant public style. With all the power of their international network for public relations and media control, the LDS Church continues to publish in bold titles how much help is being sent from Utah to the poor people of the world. No word is ever spoken of the continuing harassment on non-members who abide in the state of Utah. No comment comes from the LDS central agencies in regards to the situation of work harassment, neighborhood harassment and missionary indoctrination that continues to violate privacy rights on the people who are not members of the LDS church and who only intend to abide peacefully in a society of religious fruit loops.
America is trying to tear down the Al-Quaida network cooperating with others in all ways seeking to destroy that gang of terrorists who have made it to annihilate the social economic and social empowerment of women and children for the sake of a religious indoctrination where women do not have any value to be considered as human beings that deserve respect. At the same time, America seems to ignore the existence of a whole network of polygamists and racist theologies who continue to believe that sometime in the future world of celestial pleasures, only the worthy in mankind will resurrect to attain the wonders of plurality of marriage and endless procreation of a human race that will have one common anthropological characteristic: They will all be “white and delightsome.” Any opponents to such a delusive package of cultic notions will not either achieve to enter that fabulous world of super men.
Both Al-Quaida and the state of Utah are places where fanatics believe of women to be simple vases for reproduction of a superior race of human beings. In both societies the voices of women are to be silenced; in Al-Quaida by terror policies and in Utah by religious-political pressure and psycho pharmaceuticals. Chances for those women to become independent and to develop their own capacity to think are very low. Surprisingly, today's Al-Quaida women are standing in front of the perspective of reaching a better position to help them. In Utah, the situation hasn't changed for any betterment. This is still the one state with the highest child abuse per capita in the nation. This is one of the states with the highest level of poverty in the nation. And, it remains a problem of conscience to answer the question, why aren't those theocrats resolving such a shameful level of human degradation?
I am very impressed by the continuous activities of President Bill Clinton around the world. He is a real public speaker who can communicate concepts and convince audiences because the things he says are reasoned and his message is a message that touches all people, he doesn't make differences among better people and lower people, he does not condemn cultures and lifestyles. President Clinton is not a marionette of the US religious right. His message to the students in Berkeley has impressed me deeply for the impact of his declarations. One of his most inspiring revelations was when he described those killers in Al-Quaida, who persist to tell to one another, "I believe that this is the only true religion" But, as he continues to expose his thoughts, he speaks of a world without walls, a world where the need for globalization is an imperative necessity for the survival of the nations; we are to attain a world where it becomes dangerous that some groups tell to the rest that some kind of an ethnic group is going to prevail.
President Bill Clinton spoke about Al-Quaida, but living in Utah I thought about the Mormon indoctrination. He criticized Bin Laden and his people as fanatics who believe that theirs is the only truth. And, their view of community is like “you have to think and act like them, and that's what they believe.” They have a sort of extreme exclusive view of the world. “I know that Islam is the only true religion, and I know that the Koran is true.” But, the Mormons are telling the same crazy blabber. Bill Clinton tells that nobody has the absolute truth. That we are always learning something from one another, and community is not just everybody who is alike, but everybody who accepts common rules: We are going to be better off if we help each other. But President Clinton warns us from people who believe that their religion or race will be the most important truth of life. I am thinking that this will be a real tortured world if some of us still believe that the ones who are saved will all look alike, all wearing ties and suppressing women, or believing that women are objects for mere sexual reproduction, a world of people who walk around with a religious dogma in their right hands; if the title of that dogma is Koran or Book of Mormon I just fear that the nasty effect is about the same for women and minorities among them.
