Yeah and they wear magical underwear too. And they have several tiers of heavens. And they think they will become Gods when they die and populate their own planet. They also think God was once a mortal man.
I recently took a religious studies class and they still classify Mormonism in the Cult category.
All religion is hard to swallow. I think its ironic that Christians condemn Muslims, even though they are both Abrahamic faiths based on the same historical text. They were once considered compatible religions and have a lot of similarities.
1. No and yes. In the book of Mormon, Jesus came to the ancient Americas after he left the middle east. The second coming is yet to come 2. the prophet Joseph Smith, was told by God not to show the golden plates to the people. God did command him to correct a few errors in the bible, according to church lore. 3. They believe that native Americans are descendants of the Lamanites, the bad civilization who was the only one left at the end of the book of Mormon. 4. This one is just wrong. Back in the 1800's, for about just a few years, the lds church did do polygamy at the request of God, due to the shortage of men, and the many women needing food and support. Polygamy was quickly ceased, and it has not been practiced in the the church for over 150 years. Hope this answers your questions
