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 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.

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.

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.

A highly religious group of people who love the Lord Jesus Christ, and try their best to be like Him out of love for Him. They believe God is our loving Heavenly Father, and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. They believe the teachings of Jesus Christ and the prophets can help people gain peace in this life and eternal life in the world to come. They believe God has always used prophets to teach this to his children. They believe Jesus Christ was the only perfect, sinless person to ever live, and through his grace we are saved. He is the only object of their worship. They believe the church Christ set up was rejected by the people at that time and was not restored in its fulness until 1820 when God the Father and Jesus Christ, out of love, appeared to Joseph Smith and called him to be one of their prophets. Under the direction of God and Jesus Christ himself, Joseph Smith restored Christ's true church: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As evidence of this to the world, God had Joseph Smith translate The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. They believe the Bible is the word of God, and that The Book of Mormon is also the word of God. The Book of Mormon helps them more clearly understand the Bible. Mormons believe God answers prayers and families can last forever. They believe salvation can come to all who choose to follow Jesus Christ in word and in deed.
Man, those mormons sure do love Jesus!
