OMG :O This is really the largest compilation of absurdities I ever heard. Is this book for real? And they also live according to it? Well, it's their life after all, as long as they don't start preaching against the others. But it hearts to see how much FEAR exists in our world that we still need to submit to such religions in order to feel safe. Sad...

Dear Author,
I would like to correct a few errors that you seem to believe and have posted on this blog...
Believe it or not, it is not Mormon teachings that say God was born from human parents. This mistake is common because of the Mormon's belief that we will one day become "like" God and become queens and kings. A teaching not uncommon in some Christian faiths and one also taught by one of my personal favorite Christian author's: C.S. Lewis.
Also, they do not believe that the curse of Cain was given before God's children came to earth. However, they do believe that it was given to the Indians so that they might separate the races. This does not mean all black people are evil. In fact, at one point in the Book of Mormon they are more righteous than the Neiphites.
Also although they do believe Jesus is the literal son of God, they do not believe he had sex with Mary as that would be contrary to the bible which says Mary was a virgin.
Another Mormon myth is that Jesus had many wives. Although the early church practiced polygamy as a means to provide homes for new woman converts, this practice was discontinued as the church grew. They also do not believe that everyone will be polygamists when they die. However, it is such an odd teaching? After all, Abraham (supposedly) had three wives, but do you see anyone questioning the Jewish beliefs?
Joseph Smith never claimed to be a descendent of Christ nor is it taught in any Mormon church. The Mormons do not believe that he will judge us in the last days and Mormon doctrine teaches that God's greatest gift is the Atonment. They also do not believe Joseph Smith is not above Christ for only Christ is perfect.
One last thing: Mormons can drink Coca cola and hot chocolate, and any other caffeinated soda they want. I should know: If you haven't guessed it already, I am Mormon and I drink it all the TIME!!!!!!
