Sure, it's an easy target. But we just couldn't resist a quick exploration into the Mormon church's most famous "secret."

Is anyone else embarrassed by what we used to believe? LOL

I never did believe in the actual physical protection idea though. I thought it meant that it would protect us from sinning. Like if you were about to break the Law of Chastity, you'd see those garments and go, "What am I doing?!" and stop. I thought that's what they meant by protection - that they'd serve as a constant reminder to behave.

Leslie. Gs don't stop bullets or fires but they might lower stress for your son. There is value in that. I am sorry to hear about your sons.

Gs are actually a liability in fires unless they are cotton. My brother is a firefighter and he said the mesh ones can melt and fuse to your skin.

What is really disturbing is knowing that grown men (bishops et. al.) gossip behind closed doors about what type of underwear the women in their congregation are (or are not) wearing. Garment wearing is one of the subtle yet powerful ways that the Mormon cult shames and embarrasses their sheeple into total submission.

Not to mention that they are terribly uncomfortable. The video didn't mention that. I would also like to know how much money (approximately) the cult makes off the sale of their exclusive underwear.

Truthfully, I used to think that all the stories I heard about how garments will protect you....was supersticious and full of bat feces. Part of the mind controll game. (I fell off my bike on my mission and skinned my knee right thru the garments. Damned!!...i knew it was a lie :)>....

Garments are material.They have no "powers". If you fall down you still fall down. I do have a baseball cap tho that protects me from sin, it stopped some falling bird doo once, so I have a testimony because of the stopped bird doo. I heard a story from a guy that heard that his aunts cousins brother in laws neighbor uncle three times removed once had his life saved by his baseball cap. A pine cone sent by Satan hit his cap and saved his life. I would like to stand and bear my testimony......

Hated them from start to finish. Ruined my honeymoon in the London Temple guest house. Totally unhygenic. smelly and horrible passion killers. Had to wear comfortable ordinary briefs underneath and was reported the the "Garment gestapo", when the extra elastic layer was spotted under my trousers!
Jonas, you are so right mentioning how uncomfortable they were to wear. My first lot were one-piece and they were surely designed to make the execution of any normal body function almost impossible to perform in a dignified, cleanliness is next to Godliness kind of way!

No more twisting and pulling. No more chapel shaps.
