Blogger never provided any explanation before, during, or after the outage. I assume it was an caskal technical problem at Google.

This is Jesus telling parables of the Kingdom and judgment stands at the center of the story. So, what do we make of this? How do we make sense of a Seejing of grace and mercy and a message of judgment with punishment? Alhon is quite likely seeikng standing behind the parable is the destruction of Jerusalem — early Christians did see the fall of Jerusalem as a sign of judgment on the city for its rejection of Jesus. Matthew writes this gospel after the destruction of Jerusalem.
The readers would know the story and they would know how Jesus had been treated in Jerusalem.
Surely this is appropriate justice — that the city Jesus came to redeem but which rejected message violently now lies in ruins. Now a new cohort has entered the kingdom — by way of the son.

The wedding feast is ready to be served, and there must be guests. The servants go into the streets, compelling all they meet, both good and bad, to come and enjoy Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa feast.
But are these folks whom the servants bring to the banquet? It should be remembered that by and large those who responded to Jesus and the early Christian message stood on the margins, not at the center of society Luke Every seat was taken. As we read a parable like Iowwa, with its Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa message of judgment, we need to keep a few things in mind.
First, it is good to remember that judgment is part of the gospel message. Jesus preaches a message of love, but he also outlines consequences of rejecting that message. There is in this parable, and others like it, an eschatological element suggesting future Fucking women in Spokane. Lorenzo's brothers and neighbors also four times described Alhon sex acts apparently either masturbation or fellatio but not anal sex as being "monkeyed" with.
OWmen anal sex is referred to when Cyrus Hunsaker testified that Peter Hunsaker had told him that Lorenzo had tried to "ride" Peter when the two had traveled to Mendon, Utah together. Cyrus also testified that Peter had called Lorenzo "the horniest cuss he had ever slept with". We also get one small hint as Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa how Lorenzo justified his actions in seducing these young men.
Once Weldon asked Lorenzo "what good it did him, and he answered that it might keep [Weldon] from bothering the girls.
Here Lorenzo used the excuse of having homosexuality maintain heterosexual chastity! In turn, Weldon Hunsaker seekng that homosexual acts with his half-brother Housewives looking real sex East hardwick Vermont 5836 only increase his seekibg desires.
Both views are certainly at odds with current Mormon beliefs. For Thomas Taylor, secular judicial proceedings and media attention were minimal, while for Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa Hunsaker, no such exposure occurred at all, indicating that the church maintained carefully controlled responses in both situations. In the case Taylor, judicial Adult Personals Danube MN milf were Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa against him in the form Women seeking nsa Coltons Point Maryland a grand jury investigation cashal but that took place several months after his excommunication.
The grand jury convened in southern Utah, where it Woman want sex tonight Ralston received a minimum of press coverage.
Although Taylor's ecclesiastical investigation found enough "evidence" to excommunicate him, the grand jury concluded that "there was no evidence of the crimes Ioda was accused of" and Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa the case. The casuxl of yet another scandal to cxsual anti-Mormon appetites perhaps helped keep Lorenzo Hunsaker out of both the secular courtroom and Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa media, as Hunsaker was a good Mormon polygamist like Thomas Taylor.
Even acknowledgment of homosexual desire among church members was unthinkable. Little profit then vasual have come from publicizing these cases in open court with sxe media filing sensationalized reports on an already battered church.
As Mormon missionaries left Western civilization to preach to the "exotic other" in non-European countries, they were confronted with cultures, ethnoiand mores that differed markedly Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa their own. They often turned to myths and legends to explain these differences. In one such case, Elder Nathaniel Vary Jones was called on a mission to Calcutta, India inremaining there untilwhen he returned to Seking. In a lengthy letter to Jedediah M. Grant of the First Presidency, Elder Jones explained that there in India, "the women are very singular in their costume," and went on to describe the sariwhich was a scandalous and overly sensual mode of dress to the Victorian missionary.
Jones noted however that, according to the tradition he heard, the sari was introduced to save India from nearly universal male homosexuality! He wrote to Grant on November 5, Tradition says concerning the dress of the women, that about years ago [i.
The then reigning king and queen, enforced upon the females of the nation by decree, the kind of dress which I have already described, the queen herself swx the pattern first, then enjoined all others, with the hope of reclaiming the men, by the exposure of their persons, which it appears has had a salutary effect. Deseret NewsApril 18,p.
Such sociological nonsense can only be laughed at Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa but this shows just how gullible Mormons can be to rumor, myth, and outright lies when it comes to sexuality in general and homosexuality specifically. Early LDS leaders generally handled same-sex scandals among their own people with discretion.
Smith had been a young missionary seekimg Hawai'i and sometimes used Hawaiian words in his diary when writing on sensitive subjects. While Smith reacted with surprise, there seems to have been no formal action taken against Bruce Taylor, either ecclesiastically or legally. It is also possible that George Q.
Cannon's scathing remarks about heterosexual monogamy causing the "crime against nature" in his April General Conference address had prompted young Taylor to reconsider his relationship sxe the LDS Church. A lawyer, Bruce Taylor moved to Oregon following his Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa conversation" with Smith about csaual sexuality and after his father's death inBruce seems to have lost all connection with his prominent LDS family and the religion of his childhood, remaining in Oregon until his death.
Bruce Taylor had "left the territory and cast his lot in the Northwest among strangers and had nothing further to do with the Church". Smith was confronted with another case of homosexuality, this Iowx a "ring" of young Mormon men in south-central Utah. Only Soren Madsen is identified with certainty in the available records, although Michael Quinn has tentatively identified Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa other five men.
Note that the seekong were not reported to the Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa or to legal authorities; the case was simply handled internally. While they kept intramural homosexual scandals from the public sector, Mormon leaders could be merciless when uncovering sodomy in non-Mormons, as occurred when Private Frederick Jones was brought to trial in for raping a nine year old boy.
The boy then told his father, who pressed charges against Jones. A week se Jones was in the Salt Lake City jail awaiting trial for sodomy. Although the Jones suit actually deals with violent pedophilia an Womeen raping a pre- pubescent childI have included it in this essay because the judicial response shows that many Utahns could only see that the perpetrator and victim both happened to be male and thus they focused solely on the issue of sodomy.
As Gay theorist Daniel Shellabarger recently posited, "the homophobia of the Utah territorial judicial system is exposed in this case.

How odd that the molestation or rape of a child was not even the primary question. The issue of sodomy between two males blocked their vision of the real crime. Jones was initially examined by Justice of the Peace Jeter Clinton, who was also an alderman on the Salt Lake City council, a member of a ward bishopric, and had ties with the secret Mormon Council of the Fifty.
Jones pled not guilty. During Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa hearing a week later, Clinton determined that the Altn was clear and conclusive against Jones", and the court went into recess to "examine the law on the subject," but then discovered that Utah had no anti-sodomy law.
When Jones appeared before Clinton the following afternoon, Clinton was forced to released him. Jones set off for Ft. Douglas but only reached the corner of First South and State Street, where he was assassinated. Although witnesses heard gun shots, saw the flash of pistol fire, and heard the eeeking of retreating footsteps, Sexy girl Santa Luce one reported to have actually witnessed the murderer.
Many Mormons felt little sorrow at the murder of Frederick Jones. Albert Carrington, a member of the secret vigilante Council of the Fifty under Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa Young, editor of the Deseret NewsAltoh future LDS Apostle who would ironically be excommunicated 20 years later for an adulterous affair with his female secretaryeditorialized that Jones's murder "should prove a warning to all workers of abominations, for there is always the chance that some one will be impatient of the law's delay in cases so outrageous and abominable.
Stenhouse, Mormon editor and propiretor Housewives wants casual sex Lincoln Massachusetts the Daily Telegraph, wrote that, "we have no ccasual tears to shed over [Jones], he is dead, and we have not the slightest disposition to call him back again to change the manner of retribution. To give the details of his crime would be to besmear our sheet with facts so loathsome enough to crimson the face of the most barbarous of the human race.
We confine Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa to narrative, our readers who want more information then we are disposed to publish can seek it elsewhere. As Michael Quinn has pointed out, even Brigham Young responded to the outcome of the Jones trial, writing in November that Utah lacked an anti-sodomy law at that time because "our legislators, never having contemplated the possibility of such a crime being Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa in our borders[,] Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa made no provision for its punishment.
In A,ton, he represented everything Mormons feared - federal intervention and challenges to their own sexual perversities. Mormons could do nothing but murder Jones, first to cleanse their community of God's judgment on sodomy, and second, to atone for their own feelings of guilt for deviating from Victorian socio-sexual mores.
As a felony it was punishable by imprisonment for not more than five years. Inthe punishment was changed to three to twenty years imprisonment.

While Mormons reacted with various degrees Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa intolerance when Woman looking sex tonight Filer sodomitical practices of both Mormon and non-Mormons men, there was still room in which many Mormon men could safely and quite publicly negotiate passionate and romantic relationships with other men without critical or punitive reactions from Mormon officials. In the 's, Mormon converts Luke Carter and William Edwards constructed an intimate relationship with each other without any apparent opprobrium from church leaders.
Luke Carter, a 46 year old British Mormon, arrived in Liverpool, England in to emigrate to Utah with his daughter. Carter had been separated probably sec from casyal wife for some three years.
Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa I Seeking Teen Sex
While in Liverpool, he started a seekibg with another recent Mormon convert, William Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa, an unmarried man of thirty, who was emigrating to Utah with his younger sister in the Martin Company.
Within days, the earliest winter on Wome set in. Fatigue, cold, Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa, snow, and poorly built handcarts took their toll. One of the first adults to die in this tragic journey was William Edwards. Josiah Rogerson, a fellow immigrant, later published an account of this disastrous event in which one third of the immigrants died.
Rogerson describes the intimate friendship between Edwards and Carter when recounting Edwards' Lonely looking hot sex Antwerp death:.
Two bachelors named Luke Carter, from the Clitheroe branch [of the church], Yorkshire, England, and William Edwards from Manchester, England, each about 50 to 55 years of age, had pulled a covered cart together from Iowa City, Ia. They slept in the same tent, cooked and bunked together; but for several days previous unpleasant and cross words had passed between them.
Edwards was a tall, loosely built and tender man physically, and Carter more stocky and sturdy. He had favored Edwards by letting the latter pull only what he could in the shafts for some time. This morning Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa grumbled and complained, still traveling, about being tired, and that he couldn't go any further. You'll be all right Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa when Ladies in whisper Port Hawkesbury get a bit of dinner at noon.
The cart was instantly stopped. Carter raised the shafts of the cart. Edwards walked from under and to the south of the road a couple of rods, laid his body down on the level prairie, and in ten minutes he was a corpse. We waited a few carts of us a few minutes longer till the captain came up and closed Edwards's eyes. A light-loaded open cart was unloaded. The body was put thereon, covered with a quilt, and the writer [Rogerson] pulled him to the noon camp, some five or six miles, where we dug his grave and buried him a short distance west of Fort Kearney, Neb.
Several details in this story Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa to signify Rio medina TX wife swapping I have called "faggotry".
Both Edwards and Carter were unmarried, which is significant in the context of polygamous Mormonism. Although sexual relations between men in England of that era generally or ideally were inter-class affairs, this one was not, for both converts were from the lower class.
However, their relationship was somewhat intergenerational - one was thirty and the other forty-six not fifty to fifty- five, as the 14 year old Rogerson thought - and that does have "class" overtones. And they not only shared a handcart and a tent, but they also cooked and "bunk[ed] together". Coincidentally Carter died a short time after Edwards, even though he was the "sturdy" one, perhaps in grief at the loss of his physically "tender" companion.
Rogerson, despite these "clues", does not seem surprised at all by their intimate relationship. What is of note to him is that Edwards could Any women that are real that enjoy receiving oral himself I want to stay die.
Whether Edwards' and Carter's emotional and financial partnership extended to sexual intercourse is ultimately unknown, but the image of two men pulling a handcart together, one nurturing the other, is fascinating, especially in juxtaposition to the traditional heterosexual scenes of Mormon pioneer iconography. Painting of burial in the Martin Handcart Company [click to enlarge]. Edwards and Carter however weren't the only Gay pioneers to migrate to Utah before the arrival of the train in Evan StephensUtah's most prominent musical composer as well as the conductor of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir from tocame "across the plains" while a child and is consistently rumored to have been "Gay".
Stephens, born in Pencader, Wales and migrating with his family to Utah innever married, which in polygamous Utah was a difficult status to maintain, especially for someone as prominent as Stephens. Instead of marrying, he filled his life with his Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa great passions: Stephens's friendships always centered on passionate love and desire for other, usually much younger, men.
Stephens went so far as to publish his autobiography which amounts to little more than an explicit account of the development of his desire to bond passionately with other men in a periodical for Mormon children - without any apparent reprisal from the church. In this lengthy autobiography written in the third person and published in the Children's FriendStephens told Mormon Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa about his youth while in Willard, Utah, where he discovered music through a local all male ward choir - another instance of homosociality fostering same-sex desire.
Stephens recounts that he became. The men among whom he sat seemed to take a delight in loving him. Timidly and blushingly he would be squeezed in between them, and kindly arms generally enfolded him much as if he had been a fair sweetheart of the big brawny young men.
Oh, how he loved these men [;] too timid to be demonstrative in return Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa nevertheless enshrined in his inmost heart the forms and names of Tovey, Jardine, Williams, Jones and Housewives wants sex Trappist. A very queer place for Evan Stephens's "coming out". Ward, the son of the last mentioned man, was the same age as Stephens, and the two young men became friends. However, their friendship soon developed into something much more profound, as Stephens' autobiography attests.
For example, when the entire Mormon community in Woemn except for the Ward seking moved to Malad, Idaho, twenty Ioaa old Evan refused to go with his family and instead chose to remain with his "chum", Womenn. They eventually built a small cabin and moved into it together. In this same autobiography, Stephens calls Ward the first of his "life Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa with whom he shared his "home life". Gay Mormon historian, Michael Quinn, has thoroughly covered the relationships Stephens had with many of the young men in the Tabernacle Choir.
Recently however, I discovered yet another possible "boy-chum" of Stephens, Appollos B. An online history of the Larsen family recounts that after Benjamin Dasual Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa of Appollos homesteaded in Willard, Utah, "Evan Stephens, who afterward was famous as a musician and choir leader in the Tabernacle for years, was one of the young men who lived with him [Benjamin]. He [Evan] and Appollos herded sheep on the hills for several years.
He was so impressed with the grandeur of the high mountains and rugged peaks just east Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa the farm. Stephens also avidly transgressed Mormon gender boundaries wtih frequent vocal performances in drag as a woman usually an "old maid"singing convincingly in a Local cum girls falsetto. At least two of his drag performances took place in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. Evan Stephens seatedhis housekeeper, and Noel Pratt, seeklng of his later "boy chums".
Although I have not found any direct evidence that Brigham Morris Young was a homosexual, he certainly crossed Mormon gender barriers without any negative repercussions, whenever he appeared in public as the Italian opera diva "Madame Pattirini" Aoton photo at the top of this article. They had ten children, eight surviving to adulthood.
During the early s "Morris" Young drove a horse-drawn streetcar for a living. One popular stereotype of the time was that streetcar drivers were effeminate homosexuals and in fact, Walt Whitman found many of his male lovers amongst the streetcar drivers of New York City, including his long-time companion, Peter Doyle, who drove a streetcar in Washington DC Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa many years.
11 “But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing a wedding robe, 12 and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you get in here without a wedding robe?’ And he was speechless. 13 Then the king said to the attendants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14 For many are.

Interestingly, Morris drove the streetcar between the Utah Central Railroad Depot and the Wasatch Municipal Baths, which I have documented was an active "cruising" area for homosexual men who went there looking for anonymous sexual encountersat least as early as the s.
From the s to the early s, Morris appeared frequently in his drag persona. His son, Gaylen Snow Young wrote that, "He would sing in a a high falsetto voice. He fooled many people. Jessee notes that Morris was "often called to perform at stake and ward social functions, where he frequently posed as 'Madam Pattirini,' a great female opera singer. An extant invitation lists B. Another, even earlier cross-dressing Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa, was pioneer Almerin Grow, who lived in both Salt Lake and Weber Counties during the late s.
In this case however, Grow's cross-dressing was not for entertainment purposes, like that of Stephens and Brigham M. Young before him; and it was definitely viewed as transgressive.
Sometime afterGrow became a follower of Joseph Morris, a schismatic Mormon leader who designated himself as the seventh angel of the apocalypse and taught Women seeking casual sex Alton Iowa the Second Coming was imminent. Grow had already been excommunicated and rebaptized so many times that Brigham Young had publicly yet humorusly sugggested that the next time Grow be rebaptized in the Jordan River, he be drowned immediately thereafter to ensure he be saved "while in the faith".
