Mormons Lie. Here's a whopper about their magical underwear caught and corrected.

Lie, dissemble, deflect hard questions.....

An exchange about magical Mormon Underwear that was posted on Occupy Wall Street's dot Org forum. It does not represent the thinking of Occupy Wall Street by the way, just the thinking of some users of its forum.

As to be expected a Mormon tries to lie about the magical underwer but is put straight.

I'm a mormon and I can tell that there are too many misunderstandings here. If you have just a little of judgement, you'll see that everything cited above is completely out of context.
For exemple, the 'magic underwear'. What the hell is that crap of magic underwear? We just call them garments, and they are not magical at all, nobody in the LDS Church believes that. I WEAR IT, so I can speak with property about it.Every religion has clothes that have special religious meaning...just look at a catholic priest, how does he dress? For sure that black thing has some special religious meaning...I don't know what is that meaning, but I'm not going to start to call it "magic black overcoat" or whatever. The jews have special clothes like the kippah (the little hat) and other things, the muslims and so on. For the mormons, the undergarment symbolizes our priesthood and the covenants we made with god, like the baptisms. It's a symbol, just a symbol, and is not magical or bulletproof...I can't believe that there are so many people who believes that thing! It's absurd. Guys, go check the official websites...there are thousands of FAQs there...Our clergy is 100% voluntary...our bishops work as businesman, mailmans, in the army, in banks, in big4s (like me) and so on...would it not be weird if I went to work with a religious clothe? That's why we use it bellow our clothes...
It amazes me how many people believes those ridiculous myths like the 'magic underwear''s absolutelly childish!!

Sorry, english is not my native language and that phrase would make sense in my language. Sorry.
I wanted to say that I really know what I'm talking about because I'm a mormon for a long time and I wear the undergarments, I know exactly what is its purpose and meaning. And again, the whole thing about the 'magic underwear' is completely absurd. Really, when people talk or ask me about this I tell them "dude, do you really believes in this fairy tale?".
Myth, fairy tale.
Oh, one last thing: the same is true for the other things mentioned in the post...

Yeah, right. The Mormons never practiced polygamy, never restricted black people in their church, never mandated racial segregation where they wield secular power, and keep no secrets from outsiders. Next case...

(Mormon missionaries being instructed in evasion and dishonesty.) Thanks for "the milk".
mag·ic/ˈmajik/ Adjective: Used in magic or working by magic; having or apparently having supernatural powers: "a magic wand". Noun: The power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces.
So, by this definition, yes Mormons do believe in magic underwear. Mormons will tell you that they are a reminder of their beliefs, and that is true, to a degree. They are told in their Mormon temples that they represent the clothing given to Adam and Eve by god after they were kicked out of the Garden of Eden to be a protection from evil.
This is what Mormons are told when they are given the underwear in the Mormon temple.
Brother _, under proper authority, the garment placed upon you is now authorized [for and in behalf of _, who is dead], and is to be worn throughout your life. It represents the garment given to Adam when he was found naked in the garden of Eden and is called the garment of the holy priesthood.
Inasmuch as you do not defile it, but are true and faithful to your covenants, it will be a shield and a protection to you against the power of the destroyer until you have finished your work on the earth.
Mormons who tell you that it is not for protection either forgot what they were told (which is understandable since a lot happens at once in there and it is hard to remember it all) or they are not telling the truth. But either way, the truth is that is that yes they do have magic underwear.
