A person who is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but seldom or never practices their religion. Unlike ex-Mormons or anti-Mormons, Jack Mormons usually support the goals and beliefs of the church and maintain friendships with practicing Mormons, but for reasons of their own choose not to attend church services and activities. Jack Mormons may also indulge in activities discouraged by the church, such as drinking alcohol, smoking, and premarital sex.
Jack Mormon equivalents in other religions are "Christmas and Easter Christians" and "Yom Kippur Jews".
Although Tim was a mormon, he did not go to church on Sundays, and enjoyed drinking beer with his friends on weekends. Because of this, his buddies referred to him as a Jack Mormon.
