    Mormon Temple ceremony.

    Would it be acceptable to post a video of a secretly filmed temple marriage ceremony? Or would Mormons find that way offensive?

    Edit: I'm actually not sure what kind of ceremony it is, as I can't get through 5 minutes without falling asleep. But given the tone of the guy who sent it to me, seems such a thing is a big taboo in LDS culture.

    I'm not LDS, but I would think it inappropriate on the basis that they have the right to privacy and out of respect for those posters here that are LDS.

    It's not open to the public because they consider it sacred and want to keep it absolutely private. Of course it's offensive to LDS people.

    Yeah, a buddy of mine told me about this a few weeks back. Definitely don't post it.

    Mods feel free to delete this thread. I was just curious, as I know very little about the temple and the traditions that surround it.

    Is it true they put a white blanket in front of you and bless your private parts? I heard they use to touch the female's but they changed it because of complaints.

    Just something I heard

    Just goes to show you shouldn't believe everything you hear.

    I'm certain your query offended no one, Siro. Much class for having asked rather than just post it.

    From skipping through the thing(it's very long), about 70% or more of the ceremony consisted of showing videos explaining religious doctrines. All the faces are blurred out, and the audio is distant, so it's kind of hard to tell exactly what's going on, but the parts of the ceremony that did not include showing movies had a guy blessing people, stuff about giving the priesthood, and general prayers. I don't have the interest to watch a 90 minutes video of people praying, so I don't know the details.

    I'll answer this in my two different roles here:
    First, as a Mormon: It sickens me when people take something I view as sacred and do what they can to destroy or cheapen it. Why can't people just simply let what others do (as long as it doesn't hurt others or adversely affect minors or handicapped) alone? Why must people always look to hurt or shame or ridicule others?
    Second, as a mod: I would no sooner vote to allow that to stay on this site than I would a video depicting sacred rites of any other religion. In other words, I would never vote to allow it.

    I give you props for asking beforehand and not just posting it. That shows that you at least have some respect.

    Unless, that is, he's only feigning ignorance to let people know the video exists (it's easy to find).

    Not every LDS person can get married in the temple or be allowed into the temple for the ceremony. I don't know how common it would be to deny two LDS people temple recommends if they wanted to get married in the temple, but as far as I understand it's possible. So something not all LDS people are allowed to see is now on display for non-LDS people to ridicule.

    Um, are you saying that video is the only one of its kind in existence?? I find that very hard to believe. And what on earth would I gain from such advertisement? Holy ****, look at those Mormons praying and watching videos about Jesus!!
