No, it's a religion. And ALL religions are just cults with lots of members.

Too much secrecy....even within their own church...you are not told of their true beliefs until you've been "brain-washed"..

A couple from my church could NOT attend their son's wedding to a Mormon girl because THEY were not Mormons!

You cannot "visit" their church on a sunday like you can most churches...you have to be "Invited" by one of the members or one of those guys you see on bikes...and then only AFTER they have spent an hour or two talking you "down".

They believe you are married for life AND death...After you both die you will go to a HEAVENLY PLANET and raise CELESTIAL children and you WILL be GOD of your planet. YES! YOU WILL BE GOD...not God-like but GOD!

They believe Joseph Smith sits on the left hand of God because Joseph's BROTHER, JESUS, is sitting on God's right...

When Jesus died on the cross HE came to AMERICA and gave Joseph Smith (or told him where to find) two Gold tablets, the basis for the book of Mormon...

They believe the head of the LDS church is a hand-picked prophet of God who speaks to him...They used to think blacks were unbelievers who were not welcome or worthy to be in the LDS church until sometime in the 80's GOD told the PROPHET that they were...

It's unreal what they believe...It's truly comendable that they don't smoke or drink but the OTHER stuff is off the charts!

There is usually a related article that goes along with these polls. I don't see any related story about this one. Did somebody at the TFP just pull a topic out of thin air today?

Religion is only the way you define the workings of Eden's fig leaves to hide the GUILT of SIN. Salvation is by the Grace of GOD (Loving GOD that is) and the application of religion (works) is just a hyper-discussion. Sounds like book sells to me...... Cult means: hidden secrets, under tones, the unspeakable depths of what the next mind donesn't understand nor do they want to. So on on on on on on on........ Books sells > For the love of Money is the Root of all evil**** Religion
