look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
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.

a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). They study both the Bible and the Book of Mormon from which the nickname "Mormon" is derived. "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons or LDS) originated in 1820 in upstate New York when Joseph Smith claimed to have seen God the Father and Jesus Christ. Later, Smith received gold tablets (The Book of Mormon) containing an account of God’s dealings with some ancient American inhabitants including a visitation of Jesus Christ among this people following his resurrection. The church was officially organized on April 6, 1830 and was seen as a restoration of the early church of Jesus Christ led by prophets and apostles.The Mormon addition of colorful new doctrines to Christianity, as well as the practice of polygamy (later banned in 1890), outraged more traditional Christians. In time the Mormons fled west to escape persecution and establish their own community in the Salt Lake Valley (Utah). Led by Brigham Young, successor to Joseph Smith, the Mormon pioneer movement in the mid-1800s brought saints from the eastern United States and across northern Europe to the western frontier. Largely through its missionary work, today the church has become a significant global religion with more than half of its 14.1 million members living outside the United States." (J. Ludlow in "Revealing World Religions")
Mormons prefer to be called LDS.

Some of the nicest people you will ever meet, which is unfortunate, since they fall victim to the biggest fraud ever. The Book of Mormon has been altered nearly 300 times to meet the popularity of changing times, such as no longer practicing poligamy and allowing blacks into the church after feeling the pressure of the Civil Rights Movement. Joeseph Smith was not a martyr, he shot at and killed some of the people that came after him when they were tired of his lies.
Nobody ever saw the Golden Plates, and what he copied down from them in "hieroglyphics " have been translated and found to mean absolute rubbish. Mormons say that the Bible is word from God, even though the Bible clearly says that nothing can be added to it, the Book of Mormon is an obvious attempt at this.
Mormons must tithe 10 percent of their income to be in good standing, and people are counting. My church simply has an anonymous drop box in the lobby

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 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!

People who will deny that they are not wrong and are the most close-minded people you will ever meet. My whole family is mormon but me and my bro. Sadly, they are closed in by the church that they don't know what the real world is when they finally get to it. People aren't always nice to you outside Utah!! (Hint yes i know they are not polygamists ANYMORE. However they were in the 1800s and so on)

Scary American jesus-freaks that come to my door trying to convert me to their whacky religion.

They often sport name tags with the title of 'Elder', despite being of college student age.

Although they do seem friendly enough, to normal folk they are still god-damned annoying. Indeed, if anybody can put up with a Mormon visit without telling them to "Fuck Off", they deserve a VIP place in Heaven.
"Next time a Mormon comes to my door, I won't say I'm atheist, I'll lie and say I'm Catholic, then they'll fuck off."
