    Can other underwear be worn under temple underwear?

    Underwear like

    Bullet bras.................and................mini briefs ?

    I'm guessing no...

    Leviticus 6:10
    'The priest is to put on his linen robe, and he shall put on undergarments next to his flesh...

    ...although there is probably some merit to doing so. ;)

    So decently endowed females would be bouncing from the get go. Hmmmm . . . . . . In as much as jogging with bouncing boobs is sometimes said to be painful, somehow this doesn't seem right.

    Throughout history, people of various religions have worn sacred clothing that is both special and meaningful to them alone. Often times, this clothing may be visible to others, because it is worn on top of other clothing. Examples of such sacred clothing are beads, shawls, and special head-coverings. In other situations, this special clothing may be worn under one's outer clothing, next to the skin. The Jewish tallit katan, for example, is a white garment worn under the clothing in remembrance of the Lord's commandments (see Exodus 19:6, Numbers 15:38 and Deuteronomy 22:12). It is similar in purpose to the LDS temple garment.

    Here's a 4 minute 15 second video from the Church's official website.

    I know this is supposed to be funny, but are those garments
    any goofier than what I've seen Jews, Popes, Hare Krishnas,
    Muslims, Sikhs & Pastafarians wear?

    And you should see how Revoltifarians dress....

    Yes, it appears to be the very same video I posted in the OP.

    I've been told by Mormons that the point of it is so that when you get baptized (full body immersion while wearing white clothing) your underwear doesn't become visible as a result.

    :D No. To begin with, temple garments are only worn by members of the Church who have been to the temple to "receive their endowment." A convert to the Church may not go to the temple until at least a year after his baptism, and children who are raised in the faith are typically baptized at the age of eight, many years before they will ever go to the temple. A person is dressed in white clothing (kind of a jumpsuit) when he is baptized, and wears his own underwear under the baptismal clothes. The jumpsuit is made of a pretty tightly-woven, moderately heavy fabric. I've never actually tried to see through it, but I kind of doubt you could. o_O

    Its of poor taste that you would ridicule Mormons for their Garments, but you have nothing to say about Jews, or Muslims. What are those monks that wear red robes? Your approach is tiresome.

    And it's with dubious intellect that you're incapable of recognizing the difference between ridicule and the presentation of an honest question. That you see my post as ridicule only speaks to your propensity to see offense, even where none is indicated. If I cared I might feel sorry for you, but I'll try anyway.

    Feel free to ignore me any time you wish.

    So, you can dish it out but not take it.

    Indeed it is. My apologies. You are one of two individuals who are on my "ignore list," Skwim. I don't generally read your posts, and I only viewed those on this thread since the topic was obviously of interest to me. When I opened the thread, I realized at once that the first post that appeared was not the OP. Consequently, I clicked on "Show Ignored Content" in order to be able to follow the thread without having to second-guess at your comments. I didn't actually even watch the video. I just saw your reference to "bullet bras" and decided not to even bother responding directly to you, but to go on to address the remarks made by posters who appear to be better able to tell the difference between "ridicule and the presentation of an honest question" than you. Maybe my responses to them gave you the answers you were looking for.

    Take what, ineptitude? Well, for one thing I find it exasperating and for another, boring. So you're right. I would rather not take it. But perhaps this will help you out.

    Talking to you is like pushing a turd down the hall with a hockey stick.

    You're so charitable.
    Some threads aren't about finding answers.
    This one's about mocking underwear.
    I play it safe.....kilt only.
    That keeps the rascals at bay.....except for @columbus.

    Most threads aren't about finding answers lol. :)

    Mormon underwear invites discussion. The same can be said for baptizing the dead, speaking in tongues, refusing blood transfusions, Saturday worship, tithing, indulgences, penance, handling snakes, referring to believers as handicapped, and so on.

    Kilt only, cool, literally.

    Aye, to an atheist, dang near all religions are goofy.
    Only Bokononism, Pastafarianism, & old school Buddhism seem normal.
