This is an “anti-Mormon” site by Mormon definition. Anything that speaks negatively about the church and its claims is considered “anti”, and we at Zelph are fascinated by every side of Mormonism, and regularly discuss the negative aspects of church history. However, one thing we don’t do (contrary to most Mormons’ perceptions of “anti-Mormons”) is make it our business to insult others and personally attack them/try to hurt them. SOME (note: only some) Mormons, however, haven’t been so kind. Here are some gems. General authorities, if you’re reading this—hopefully this post inspires you for a topic for your next conference talk! And Mormons—it’s time to realize that you can debate an issue without resorting to attacking an individual. Use the examples of other great members of your church who manage to always stay civil and respectful, treating people like the children of God they believe them to be.

You having an excuse for being a weak kneed coward doesn’t change how pathetic and sad you are. You spend hours hiding behind your computer screen “writing” (or reposting what you read somewhere else) your asinine filth because you’re too afraid of people knowing the real you. And you actually have the gumption to tell yourself you have “courage.” No matter how many people tell you otherwise, let’s be honest, you know you’re pitiful.” 

Say what you want about this guy, he sure knows how to use the word “gumption”, and for that, WE APPLAUD YOU, D-TOWN!

Love,

A pitiful 23-year-old girl

“Zina is a leftist, and wholly dedicated to that religion, and one cannot serve two masters.” 

Sorry, Loran. I’m a libertarian Ron Paul lover who can’t even vote.

“I’m sure [Zelph] don’t do anything to alleviate the problems they see in the world, but they’re more than willing to whine about how to spend other people’s money (typical liberals).”

*

“Your stuff is the same dry, anti-Mormon liberal whining there’s always been.”

Sensing a bit of a political theme here…

“She probably has to hide behind a pseudonym until this site brings in enough money to make up for what will be lost from her pro-Mormon site.”

It’s proving incredibly easy to bring in more than 45 cents a day with Zelph on the Shelf, actually.

“Anonymous Internet coward”

Nothing screams “coward” like speaking out against something and losing dozens of friends over it! (And nothing screams “anonymous” like announcing your site in a podcast downloaded by tens of thousands of people!)

“In the end you’ll go the way of many others, fade into obscurity, and probably live out a sad existence. Go ahead and wallow your hours away on this blog writing from a dark room, hiding your faces and at the end of your life you’ll look back and realize you’ve amounted to nothing while at the same time Christ’s church and its members will be doing just fine. Get a life.”

My life is a thrilling cocktail of setting puppies on fire, stealing oversized chaise longs from furniture stores, and inventing lies about the LDS church. Though I actually rent an apartment with an excessive number of windows because I enjoy light so much—and I have Christmas lights and candles lit constantly, so there is always wonderfully ambient lighting when I’m writing. Appreciate the concern about cataracts though! You seem to really want the best for people!

“Spineless”

My chiropractor must be even better than I realized.

“You will fall as chaff, and be burned as chaff”

So poetry!

“Apparently you have no earthly clue how logic and reason work . . . Are you sure you graduated from 3rd grade?”

No.
