A very nice, generous, misunderstood group of people. No they don't practice poligamy and have multiple wives. We only try to do the best we can in life. We're not perfect and don't think we're perfect. We only strive to work hard and get through life without much trouble. We don't put down other religions, and we don't think you'll go to hell or whatever just because you're in a different religion. We believe everyone has a chance to have eternal salvation and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two seperate beings, and that Christ created the Earth. We are Christian. And no, we don't think Joseph Smith (the translator of the book of mormon) is a god, we believe he is a prophet of God.We aren't here to overtake the world, we promise.We only try to allow everyone who would like to hear about our church to hear about it. We understand that its your choice to join or not and we don't to force it upon you. Thank you, and I hope you understand mormons better.
Oh, there goes a missionary. He's not scary, he's just trying to do the best he can in life.

A very nice, generous, misunderstood group of non-gay, mostly white people. They don't practice polygamy or have multiple wives except after death where men can have as many wives as they want. They try to do the best they can in life. They're not perfect and don't think they're perfect unless but they do think they are better than non-Mormons. They strive to work hard and get through life without much trouble. They don't put down other religions, at least not to your face. They don't think you'll go to hell unless you're gay or you're in a different religion. They believe everyone has a chance to have eternal salvation, except the gays, and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings, and that Christ created the Earth for straight Mormons only. They think they're Christian. They don't think Joseph Smith (the translator of the book of Mormon) is a god, just equal with Jesus. They also believe he is a prophet of God. They aren't here to overtake the world, even though their doctrine says they are. They try to allow everyone who would like to hear about their church to hear about it. And they also try to allow everyone who would NOT like to hear about it, hear about it as well. They understand that it's your choice to join or not and they don't force it upon you. However, they'll force you to join once you're dead so why fight it now? I know these things are true and I say them in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Despite what you might have heard from the Mormons, they actually do love gay people, as long as they stop being gay.

A religion that, if you tell a Jehovah's Witness you're a part of, they will instantly leave. The opposite is true for born agains.
"Hi, I'd like you to have this pamphlet about our religion: The Jehovah's Witnesses."

"Well, I'm a Mormon"

"Okay... bye!"

"Works every time!"

A very missunderstood religion, i don't even fullly understand it. They are just trying to be the best person they pssibly can be.(no booze or dope involved...) They're generally very honest, wonderful people, not bible huggers or bangers. Those who go on missions have not been brain washed or hypmotized, they simply believe so strongly in something they are willing to give 2 years of their life to try and spread it to anyone who will listen. I'm not a mormon, but my best friend is and there isn't a better person in the world. They truly don't get enough credit and get bad-mouthed a lot, leave 'em alone and let them in, you might end up meeting someone more than worth it to you.
Mormon: *Knock Knock* "Hey, I'm Eric and I'd like to tell you about 'The Book Of Mormon'".

Latter Day Saints
" I rode into Salt Lake City prepared to do my journalistic duty and arouse the public ire against polygamy. However, when I saw how ugly were the Mormon women, I realized that the men who marry, not one, but many of them, are Latter Day Saints indeed and deserving of the praise and gratitude of all mankind." Mark Twain

The term given to members of the various churches who follow the teachings of Joseph Smith, Jr. They are called this because Joseph Smith claimed to translate an ancient American record called "The Book of Mormon".

Many different Churches follow the the teachings of Joseph Smith, but most often the term "Mormons" is used to describe members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sometimes it is also used to describe the members of "Break-off" Churches who still follow discontinued practices of the Original Church, such as polygamy, etc.
Those people are Mormons.
