    I know that until June 8th, 1978 blacks weren't allowed to be priests in the Mormon Church.

    Well, I was raised to believe they were a cult that claimed Christianity when they had no right to it because they were founded upon a basis of rejecting Christianity as valid. Now I don't give two figs about that.

    As far as the holy writ, it's problematic because it actually says things that we can basically confirm are not true with the historical record and archaeology.

    As for the organized hierarchy, it's corrupt and rotten to the core once you get to any person with significant power, with far too many rich, old mormon men supporting the splinter polygamist groups which are founded upon immoral principles of power and control, and has problems with power and money being used in a way that is claimed to be charitable when really it's just doing things solely to benefit their congregations, or, worse, are actually operating in order to create profit like a corporation.

    And the Church of Latter Day Saints is big business, I kid you not.

    Mormon ideology is more bizarre that most other religions, but no religious doctrine can survive scientific scrutiny. That's why they depend on faith. I get the feeling, however, that many Mormons take their doctrine (planet Kolob?!?) with quite a few grains of salt.

    In their daily lives, however, I have found Mormons to be some of the nicest, most compassionate people around!

    They are the reason I was born, haha. My parents both had mormon friends, and they invited my parents to a square dance thing at their church and that's where my parents met. So my parents met at a mormon square dance, which my friends find entertaining.

    One of the nicer religions.
    All the mormons I've met were very friendly people. although all of their parents were very controlling... Don't know if those 2 things were related...

    I've noticed that too! But I never assumed it was related!

    Like any other religion, the majority are fine. In the extreme, they are child molesters at best, ousting all the young males from their communities and marrying very young girls to old men. They believe that men are far superior to women and that women are nothing more than sexual trinkets!
