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.

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'".

" 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."

A term used to describe members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

For reference, Mormons don't curse black people, don't hate homosexuals, aren't polygamists, don't drink kitten blood and ACTUALLY ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE FUN. Crazy, right? I know, I know, schooled you all. *hairflip*

Plus, they are not brainwashed, nor forced to do anything they don't want to. They have the freedom to choose how they live, there are just guidelines set to help them on their way to being the best they can be.

For reference, I myself am Mormon. So trust me, I am perfectly mediocre and average, in the best sense possible.
Please stop mocking Mormons because you are afraid of what you don't understand.

Someone who is a little annoyed about people's entries on mormon in the urban dictionary and would advise all who read this not to waste their time reading the following pathetic prejudices and/or the equally useless attempts at defending one's religion in a website that is supposed to be about fun, urban slang.
