TURN AWAY - LDS Hymn Parody #41

Another LDS Hymn Parody - the 41st one I have written.  And I'm having a blast writing these.  It really is cathartic, coming up with these hymn parodies.  After having my voice squelched for so long, to be able to finally speak the actual truth is very fulfilling.  And the truth is:  The Mormon Church is a fraud.  Plain and simple.  In my opinion, based on the evidence, Joseph Smith was a shyster and a con who invented Mormonism as a way to gain power over people, thereby elevating his own ego; and of course, polygamy was a huge part of his plan.

Naturally, though, the Mormon Church seeks to hide its sordid history to the point where a lot of its members don't even know the actual history.  No, they think that whatever negative is said about Mormonism is "Anti-Mormon Propaganda" because that is how the church characterizes it.  In essence, the Mormon Church tells its members not to study on their own, but to only pay attention to "authorized materials" (one of the signs of a cult).  Instead, the Mormon Church tells them to...

TURN AWAY
Sung to the tune of Carry On, #255

White-washing all of the history,
We’ll make it go away
So the members will not know it,
And they will not go astray.
But if they should happen to find it,
The truth on the internet,
We’ll tell them it’s Anti-Mormon,
So they must not forget…

That they are out to get us,
Turn away, turn away, turn away.
Do not let them persecute us,
Turn away, turn away, turn away.
You must not doubt the doctrines,
Stay strong and simply obey.
When they slander Mormonism,
Turn away, turn away, turn away!

They’ll probably try to discredit,
The prophet Joseph Smith.
They might say that he invented
The church and it is a myth.
But if they should call him a shyster,
Or say that he was a con,
Remember what we have told you,
Turn away and carry on.

Oh yes, they’re out to get us,
Turn away, turn away, turn away.
Do not let them persecute us,
Turn away, turn away, turn away.
You must not doubt the doctrines,
Stay strong and simply obey.
When they slander Mormonism,
Turn away, turn away, turn away!
