Mormonism: Sex Among Gods

I discovered an amazing site today, the Mormonism Research Ministry, which serves to "challenge the claims of Mormonism". It reminds me of Operation Clambake, which serves to debunk that other loony cult Scientology.

Here's a great quote from a gem of an article from MRM that discusses the belief that Mormon Gods engage in endless celestial sex:
"Sex Among the Gods. Sex, which is indispensable on this earth for the perpetuation of the human race, is an eternal quality which has its equivalent everywhere. It is indestructible. The relationship between men and women is eternal and must continue eternally. In accordance with Gospel philosophy there are males and females in heaven. Since we have a Father, who is our God, we must also have a mother, who possesses the attributes of Godhood. This simply carries onward the logic of things earthly, and conforms with the doctrine that whatever is on this earth is simply a representation of spiritual conditions of deeper meaning than we can here fathom." (John A. Widtsoe, Rational Theology, 1915 1st ed., p.64)
