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.

Keepers of the secret truth behind magnets.
although many have tried to squeeze this secret from the mormons, many have failed.
Mormon:"Hello, would you like to ask a question on our basic beliefs?
Me:"Yes, how do magnets work?"
Mormon:"your chat has ended"

A religious group that knows more about what they believe than you do. So shut up about it already.
Non-Mormon: Mormons believe aliens will come to earth and enslave us all. They're a crazy cult
Mormon: No, we don't believe that. Why don't you do some actual research before you open your big, stupid mouth

a large gullible group of people who know nothing of what they believe.
american indians are considered jewish and masonry is a major part of their temple practices, and there is absolutely no evidence to back the claim of the book of mormon
the book of mormon is a frabricated story, anyone with a brain can see it for what it is
mormons are brainwashed, i know because im surrounded by them and know more about their religions roots than they do.

Mormon, or LDS are not, as others have said, a cult or brainwashed. Being myself a Mormon I know this, unlike other so-called Mormons who obviously don't know what they're talking about! Okay let's start easy.

Firstly, we don't do polygamy. Yes, it was practiced in the olden days but then a prophet was told that we should not and so we don't practice polygamy anymore. There is another branch of Mormons that still do practice polygamy, but they're not associated with the church.

Okay, a prophet is kind of like a pastor. He's the leader of the church and he receives revelation from God. That doesn't mean others can't receive it, but that will be personal to the person.

No, we're not brainwashed. Those who are of the church fully believe in it, just like people of other faiths believe. We do have missionaries who go and preach the gospel. The boys can go when they're 18 and, though strongly encouraged, do not HAVE to go. Also, I've heard people say that they have to pay for it themselves. This is true, but if you can't come up with all the money, the church will make up the rest. Girls can go when they're 19.

Another thing that really peeves me: homosexuality. Okay, Mormons. Do. Not. Hate. Gays. We love them just like anybody else. We simply believe that marriage was made to be between a man and a woman and, while not condoning it, we don't hate gays/lesbians.

I hope this has helped with your knowledge of Mormons. More to follow.

The Ye Olde English way of saying "Morons".
While I was in SLC, I kept refering to the locals as 'morons' instead of mormons. The more they got pissed, the more I laughed.

A religion that is greatly misunderstood. Many only know them because of their missionaries that visit door-to-door. Many misconceptions are that they can have more than one wife. That is a lie. When the church was restored by Joseph Smith (who was not a crazy guy) everyone was allowed to have more than one wife. Another, we do not offer money to God or Jesus, it's called tithing. It is given to the church to pay for more churches, temples, the MTC (Missionary Training Center), etc. Another is that people believe we created a new Bible. That is incorrect. Joseph Smith recovered the Book of Mormon about a century ago after praying to God, asking about which religion to join. God answered said none were right. We also do not believe that you have to be a mormon, or you'll go to hell. Only those who are truly evil go to hell (murderers, rapists, ect.) Some of us do have many children because one of our duties is to have as many as possible, but it isn't like we actually have hundreds like many people joke around about. Also, we aren't really called 'Mormons,' that is just the slang term. We are actually LDS, or Latter-Day Saints. One last thing; we believe in God the Father, Christ the Son, and in the Holy Ghost. They are the Godhead, separate but one. Three different people, all here for the same thing.
Person 1: Hey, what church do you go to?

Person 2: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Person 1: Isn't that Mormon?

Person 2: That's what many know us by.

Person 1: Wow. Just want to say, Joseph Smith was some crazy old guy. I can't believe you worship him. Oh, and you like, sacrifice money to him or something. That's just stupid.

Person 2: He wasn't crazy, he was blessed. If you actually want to learn some real facts about us then read the Book of Mormon.
