What are some weird things about mormons?

i want to set the record straight and put these myths to rest.

They're so polite that it's almost to the point of being weird. Actually it's weird that society has become so rude that polite is now considered weird.

I do know that they are unbelievably honest. I used a washroom at a diner in Utah, and left my expensive ring in the men's room. I didn't miss it for a hundred miles, and when I called the place they said an employee found it and they promptly mailed it to me
Report as
oh.

Is that... Kuuipo!! :D

Yesterday, my boyfriend gets out of his car, glances over and BAM 3 missionaries pounce!!
Report as
Thats Jehova Witness ?
Mormons dont go door to door ?
Report as
we kind of do. but we try not to be a bother. tell us to leave, we leave.
Report as
Mormons do something very similar. They will definitely talk to you if you are outside.
Report as
we just like new converts. we try to spread the word. but we respect it if you don't want us there.
Report as
(...shhh...yes they do...I know first hand...shhh...)
Report as
sigh. oh mikale, do you ever get tired of that?
Report as
(...yes...I get very tired of them trying to get me to become Mormon again...)
Report as
ask them to leave you alone. and i was referring to the whispering parentheses.
Report as
Ya, not so much...I finally had to get Provo involved...We'll see what happens when YOU try to get out...
Report as
some missionaries are too persistent. i feel sorry for you. if you ask, they should leave you alone. they probably just got exited.
Report as
Yes, they were very excited that they found me living 30 miles away...So excited that the threat of bodily harm wasn't enough to deter them.
Report as
oi vey. or however you spell that
Report as
Lol! They always find you...
Report as
you make them sound like zombies.
Report as
Wait! Now we're Jewish?!?! Lol!
Report as
Sorry about that, it's just an ongoing missionary joke for all religions. I sure wouldn't have the guts to do that!
Report as
Zombies can't ride ten-speeds...very well anyway.

i want to see that. that would be funny.

It's good that you posed the question so you could do your part to quell some of the nonsense that people hear, then subsequently believe due to a lack of knowledge

They practice or at least think that polygamy is ok.

Helpful (2) Fun Thanks for voting Comments (7)
Report as
nope. polygamy is a split off. we do not do it.
Report as
That's the FLDS, which is a separate belief system. Although Joseph Smith did have several wives. Historians have confirmed that.
Report as
no. brigham young did, though. eleven, actually. but we don't anymore.
Report as
Report as
ok i didn't know that, but polygamy was so that the women could legally own property.
Report as
I'm don't really care either way, but just wanted to put the facts out there :)

that you will go to heaven bye following a set of rules and bye works which the truth is the only way you getting into heaven is excepting jesus in your heart not by works or how good you can be

Helpful (3) Fun Thanks for voting Comments (7)
Report as
we have to believe AND do good works.
Report as
yes believeing is right and good works are good but thats not how you will get into heaven it is only through excetping Jesus as your savior and believe in your heart that He died on the cross and rose again. He died for every sin of all human beings
Report as
we do that. that is very important. i was just giving a quick run down and it slipped my mind.
Report as
okay good just remember its all about Jesus whoo
Report as
yeah. again sorry i forgot that. (face palm)

I'm of the belief that we are born equal. I can deduce from Sammy 30 that someone who is born and dies in deepest darkest Africia, for instance, will be doomed to hell.

we are all equal.

I don't think there is anything weird about them. I think everyone should be tolerant of other people's beliefs.

that women can't get into heaven in less their husbands grant it once there they are to be eternally pregnant with spiritual children don't even get me started on Joseph Smith

whoa. false. no. women can go to heaven too. they aren't forced to be eternally pregnant, i don't really know if they can be. that wouldn't be heaven though.

I hope your source is reliable. Not too sure about the Smith adherence either.
I'm not a Mormon but I find no fault with someone who believes differently than I do
Report as
look it up
Report as
Kenneanderthal
Okay
Report as
Kenneanderthal
Looked it up and I find no fault. Churches are religious orders. They should direct us towards spirituality... It seems that the church of latter day saints does just that. No one is glorifying Smith as I can see.http://mormon.org/joseph-smith
Report as
what i was saying up there is that would be hell if the women were eternally pregnant.

The weirdest thing is that they believe in a religion founded by a known con-aritst and criminal.

i was worried that would come up. he was not a criminal, he was arrested on false charges, he never conned anyone, and he left when they got mad and came freely to the prison.

That God was married ?
Jesus created by Elohim & Mary ?

Can be baptized for the dead. ?
Every religion has their own belief and
I feel we should respect each one.
Believing in Jesus Christ is the most
Important thing.
We all read the same Bible but seem

They took the unknown curse off black people, in 1978 and accepted them as humans and now blacks can go to their churches..but can't married their white women and can't hold certain positions or post... I watched the Mike Wallace interview..

My daughter got baptized Mormon and no longer participates once she found out that gays and lesbians are not acceptable. The "elders" better known as those kids on bikes, have tried to recruit my family. After much discussion, it is apparent that they believe the Book of Mormon takes precedence over the Bible as do the teachings of Joseph Smith over that of Jesus. When cornered in discussions, they can't seem to think for themselves, at least that has been the case with the majority who have come to our home. It bothers me how devoted they are to the man Joseph Smith (who was killed all those years ago by a mob in Carthage, Il) They are friendly, moral people who are strong family advocates. But, they are not Christian in my sense of the word, as they believe in the writings of Smith as supposedly found on the golden book given by the angel Moroni to him. Very hard for me to want to believe in their truths.
