    I was just wondering if there were any here. I am kind of curious about their religion and would like to learn.

    My Dad was a Mormon (he's gone now) and I went to the church when I was younger and a bit into my teens. What is it you want to know?

    Just what they believe, what they actually believe not all those crazy rumors that are hard to believe.

    If you can, read the book 'The Maze of Mormonism' by Walter Martin.

    Highly recommend

    A very intelligent, well written and exhaustively researched history of LDS church as a preamble and cultural setting for a heinous crime. Krakauer applies a reasonable and objective outsider's account of the Mormons.

    Get ready for a drive through crazy town.

    My best female friend in the whole wide world is a grand daughter -- not a great grand daughter -- of John D. Lee, the main figure in the Mountain Meadow Massacre. Interesting part of 'Mericuhn history.

    I dated a Mormon once and it was my first interaction with one. It was really strange meeting her family and such...

    Mormonism is not the thing for me.

    I don't dislike Pecker. The OP just asked if there were any mormons involved with LPSG. Pecker is a mormon. Is that a loaded fact full of hatred, animosity, and bigotry? Don't think so. It's just a fact as in "The facts, ma'am, please, just the facts.":tongue:

    However, having grown up in devout mormon family in the middle of Ewetaw, I reserve the right to have a valid and not just "anecdotal" opinion of the peculiar people in that State.

    I was raised and baptized mormon.. had to go to church 3 hours every sunday, an hour every day before high school, etc.. personally I don't ascribe to any religion and obviously have issues with mormonism (along with most of christianity) because of its stance towards homosexuality.. HOWEVER.. as far as christianity goes, it's really one of the nicest versions out there, and not any "crazier" than any other religion. They believe that nearly everyone goes to heaven just for choosing to come to earth instead of following satan in the pre-mortal existence, and that people are married for the eternities, not just for life..
    p.s. mormons are NOT POLYGAMISTS- it was banned by the church a century ago. The polygamists in TX are Fundamentalists- they split off 100 years ago and are a completely separate religion.
