Up, up, and away! Saying Farewell to Clark.

Max-Landis-Elijah-Wood-Death-And-Return-Of-Superman

It takes a lot to say something as little as “goodbye”. The pain of imminent loss bounces underneath your breasts until you feel blood rushing through all of the wrong valves. Objects become air. Air degenerates into nothing.

This, I believe, is how the collective might of the #apostake feels after clarkherlin blocked us all. We have been blessed by God – who may or may not be a white American space dad – to have met such an individual. Seeing how deeply embedded Mormonism is in this man and what that does to someone serves as a reminder to each of us. It helps us to remember why we left the Mormon Church in the first place. More important, it reminds us why an organization such as the Mormon Church should not be encouraged to thrive and prosper.

The scary part about this person (or persona, depending on whether or not he is, in fact, a troll) is that it is Mormonism at its very best – not worst. Pure faith in Prophets, an artificial love for families, arbitrary bigotry, and a stubborn refusal to admit empirically driven truths are but a handful of reasons why the Church is wrong. What is the real difference between Clark and his leaders? The leaders know the tactful way of voicing horrible or stupid “truths”.

To say proper goodbye to blind Superman, I have iPhone-pic-ked a handful of my favorite tweets from Clark (ones that were not already included in a previous blog):

You’re a fool not to believe whatever a Prophet writes, even though new Prophets supersede and often contradict dead Prophets:

Absolutism:

Clark7
 

Oh, how he weeps!

Clark8
 

Creating an orientation a minority of people are born with…as a weakness to overcome?! Huh?

Eternal marriage/Sin doesn’t change:

Clark11
 

Dissolve, then:

Clark14
 

Mormon leaders also have spoken against:

Agreed:

Taking a quick break from bigotry in order to assign himself a different imaginary title:

Clark18
 

Certified. Legally binding. True.

Clark19
 

Quick, everyone! A God who has everything needs our help!

Clark20
 

At least he is honest at times:

Clark1

 

The best part about all of these lines is that these are just a few of his tweets from the past week.

Clark may be thru with us, but the question is: are we thru with him?

What can one man in the #Apostake hope to achieve against the might of a Mormon superhero?

Against one who says whatever he is told to say no matter what. One who defies the might of all who believe in common sense and free thinking. One who repeats fixed ideologies that have no relevance to reality.

Today we honor a man who, while not always the most…something – I’m not sure what, at least does not shy away from defending his religion.

@clarkherlin will show ye the error of your ways, O’ fool with little Mormon faith.

The 12 Apostles of Utah?! Actually, there are 15.

Don’t let rattlesnakes. Don’t you dare let them.

It is an independently tested and verified fact that the Mormon God exists. Screw those who don’t agree.

Ah, ah, ah!

You’re damn right I’m going to plug my account into this post.

Lol, why would I want to read an unbiased, objective opinion? Just trust the salesman who’s selling the product, silly!

There are, perhaps, thousands more of this stuff, wherever it came from.

But is there hope for Clark? Find out, only on apostake.org!
