Mormons claim to have a Heavenly Father but what they really have is a Heavenly Follower.
Back in Joseph's time, everyone who was anyone was having visions of Angels. So, Joseph had one. Then to set himself apart from the crowd, years later, he added God and then Jesus just to up the game. Worked well enough.
Back in Joseph's time there were many big temperance movements. My mother always used to say , "No one knew at the time that coffee was bad for you." Ha ha. Many were saying it. And Heavenly Father decided to join the throngs and reveal the WoW to his prophet.
The curse of Cain from the Bible was always a great way to discriminate against people of color. Mormon Heavenly father decided to get on that already rolling along band wagon as well. "Great idea. I'll have some of that," he said in his thundering tones. Then to add his own twist, and give it some pizazz, He revealed to Joseph that black servants could be black servants in the CK too. How magnanimous!
Then the world decided to rethink the curse of Cain thing and the way they treated the Blacks because, well, the Blacks weren't having it anymore. And lo and behold, after thinking about it for a couple of decades, Mormon God decided that if the other kids were jumping off the cliff, He would too. "Priesthood for everyone!" HE decreed. See? We do have modern revelation!
The thing is though, Mormon Heavenly Father is a little slow on the uptake. Years after the Psychiatrists decided being gay wasn't a mental illness, Heavenly Father was still instructing Oaks et al at BYU that electroshock therapy was the way to go for the gays. Finally had to quit that and follow a kinder society.
I would expect at the rate Mormon Heavenly Father follows the crowd, Marriage Equality will be the rage in the Mormon church by 2030.
Now this pesky thing society has got going on where women are taking their rightful place being what they want to be and taking no prisoners. Lets' start the count down on when Mormon Heavenly Father will decide to get on that trend. Any guesses?
I just wish society would move faster so Mormon Heavenly Father could follow faster. Would be nice.
