They were flabbergasted.

21 And he had caused the cursing to come upon them, yea, even a sore cursing, because of their iniquity. For behold, they had hardened their hearts against him, that they had become like unto a flint; wherefore, as they were white, and exceedingly fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a skin of blackness to come upon them. 22 And thus saith the Lord God: I will cause that they shall be loathsome unto thy people, save they shall repent of their iniquities. 23 And cursed shall be the seed of him that mixeth with their seed; for they shall be cursed even with the same cursing. And the Lord spake it, and it was done.

Not sure how this tidbit relates to the topic.

Was the town named after a Creek Indian who was cursed with a skin of shortness? When the Fundies recognized the error, they renamed the city Colorado, the Spanish word for red?

Or have you just been smoking something that is legal in Colorado?

Rojo is red. Colorado is colored or "colored red."

And if they ever protest that "skin of darkness" doesn't really mean skin color, they can then be referred back to 3 Nephi 2:14-15.

14 And it came to pass that those Lamanites who had united with the Nephites were numbered among the Nephites;

15 And their curse was taken from them, and their skin became white like unto the Nephites;

Finally, of course, we have good old Zelph, the white Lamanite.

There is no plausible explanation other than skin color.

There's your problem. If you had faith, you would not need explanations that were plausible.

My favorite is 2 Nephi 15:20 to use against them. Same as Isaiah 5:20.

Never understand that "...they might not be enticing unto my people..." bit: I worked for a short time with the Navajo, and one of the girls we simply called "The Fox". Needless to say, us pasty white Anglo boys thought she was beyond enticing.

But, of course, we were teenage boys, whose hormones have no religion or ethnicity. :-) :-) :-)

It makes no sense for Semitic people.

Just another thing god can't get right. Just because you have a dark skin doesn't make you loathesome to others....unless you're a hate filled bigot....which is what many "christians" seem to be....but then again so is their god.

I did a mission in the Caribbean Islands. I was the extreme minority as a white person. Not only were they not loathesome unto me, they were quite attactive and delightsome....especially the Jamaican girl I made out with on several occassions.
