Great job on the Salamander Society page. When I was just out of the church I spent hours (yes, hours) perusing the wisdom laden pages of your site, guffawing and rolling down the aisles laughing at the silliness that is Mormonism. - 03/21/2013 - Charles, Budhist Punk
Unfortunatly, I was born and raised Mormon. But as an adult, after years of research (which actually started as a quest to defend the church) I found the truth about the Mormon church. Theyre sick, sick people. Its an evil thing. Its sexist, evil and wrong. - 11/15/2010 - StonerGurl

i don't even believve in god. but found this site amazingly amusing. you crazy cult obsessed mormons. - 07/20/2010 - anon
Love it!! We need more of this. It's amazing what Mormons believe!! - 07/12/2010 - wowsa!
This is pretty funny. I died laughing! I am a convert to the Lds religion, female, young, and a soldier in the United States Army. So I think I can say that if I'm not offended, you shouldn't be either. Seriously. Learn to laugh at it. It's funny! Nothing is perfect. America is Beautiful but we still have white trash red necks. Hell, I'm related to a few! The Mormon religion is beautiful but the culture sucks!! Believe me, I'm from Las Vegas and that's where I converted. Now I live in Utah and I HATE it. The people blow. Besides, if these things are so 'sacred' to everyone, how did they get leaked to the public? That's right, because not everybody believes the same. Let it go, man. America was founded on Freedom of Religion, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. If you don't believe in those things, then what the hell are you doing here? Don't like it? Move to Europe. So come off of your holy high horse and loosen up a bit. Live and let live, people. I love this site! Can't wait to share it with my friends!! - 06/28/2010 - Lyla
What i find so hilarious is apart from the fact that Mormons are firstly looking up this site and reading it word for word, but their belief is in a religion that not only 'appeared' 1830 years AFTER christ but that they believe and follow a religion founded by someone who clearly made up the 'Holy scriptures' to have complete control over a bunch of stupid brainwashed people. You say we are so filled with satan because we don't believe in your crap but have any of you ever bothered to notice all the flaws in any argument for the existence of God? Because i find it hard to believe that anyone with half a brain who bothered to have a look could continue believing in the 'Angel Morin'.
You are all seen as a complete joke, and if God does exist i bet he's laughing at you too with your 'holy garments'. - 03/18/2010 - Fuck the Mormons.
I WAS ONCE A MORMON. I HAVE NO ANGER TO THE MORMON PEOPLE MY WIFE IS STILL A MORMON. THE REASONS I LEFT. 1. IT WAS ALL MADE UP STORY. 2. JOSEPH SMITH WAS A PROPHET OF CONVENIENCE. 3. THE CHURCH WILL NOT DISCLOSE TO THE MEMBERS WHAT THE CHURCH BELIEFS ARE FOUNDED ON AND WHEN YOU ASK YOU ARE NOT READY TO RECIEVE SUCH THINGS. 4. I WILL NOT FEEL BAD OR JUDGED ON SUNDAYS ANY MORE. 5. CONTINIOUS REVELATION IS A CONVIENCE TO MAKE THE BELIEFS MORE ACCEPTABLE TO TODAYS SOCIETY. 6. THE MASONS AND THE TEMPLE ORDINANCES ARE THE SAME THING. 7. FINALLY AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO RECIEVE MY 12 VIRGINS WHEN I DIE I KNOW THAT IT IS NOT TRUE AND AN ABOMINATION TO GOD. MY PRAYER IS THAT EVERY MORMON WILL RESEARCH THE CHURCH WITH AN OPEN MIND (LIKE THEY SAY TO WHEN THE MISSIONARIES COME TO TALK TO CONVERTS) AND QUIT LETTING THE CHURCH HAVE MIND CONTROL OVER YOU. - 03/09/2010 - WHERE IS MORONI
LOL! good work, Salamander guys. Very creative and spot on, indeed. The people posting here claiming there are lies can't point out the "lies" b/c POLYGAMY was practiced, TEMPLE ceremonies are silly that's why they're "secret" not sacred, Romney does SWEAR AN OATH in the temple to the Mormon church first, only, and above all like any old Mormon, and Mormons DO plan WORLD DOMINATION. - 03/04/2010 - freeurmind
This whole Mormon thing is profoundly funny, AND disturbing, AND informative.
When a group of people is isolated for too long, they start to act silly. Some tribes start worshiping bugs. Some throw sacrifices into a volcano. Some make up wild stories and develop goofy rituals. It happens all over the world.
It is one of the reasons Western people tend to 'look down' on 'lesser developed' 'natives.' From island Voodoo to Aztec idol worship - the 'West' has always used this behaviour as justification for slapping some sense into the culture in question.
THE THING THAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT is that these LOOK like well organised, sensible 'White-folk.' Efficient and modern in every way... until you LISTEN to them!
As a group, they are as mad as baboons! I see it as comforting. It is nice to see White-folk make asses of themselves for a change. ...And OH BROTHER, do they ever make asses of themselves!
Magic underpants and talking white lizards... makes L.RonHubbard look sane. 'Ain't no crazy like white-folk crazy, 'cause white-folk crazy don't stop!'
THANK YOU LDS, THIS TIRED OLD WORLD NEEDS A LAUGH - AND YOU HAVE DELIVERED IN SPADES. KEEP IT UP.
-P.S.: I think you guys are even funnier than the Nazis! - 03/03/2010 - anon
Hahahahhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! I love this site. It exposes the true ass-hole nature of the apostles and most members of the LDS church. I also love how so many of the comments are justifying the truth that B.M. was an ass by saying that the author has "just lost his testimony" and that that happened because of sin - not because the truth of the matter is obvious. HA!
For a group of people that decry justification so often, mormons sure love to exercise its power when it comes to shielding themselves from the truth.
P.S. The title of the site is hilarious. I think it should be more prominent. - 02/23/2010 - Bean
Check out www.bornagainmormon.com for some very interesting comparisons of the LDS doctrines and Biblical truth. Mormonism is not Christianity in fact the religion uses many of the methods of brainwashing that leaders such as Hitler used to force people to believe or behave in particular ways. God created your brains people - use them and see beyond religious propaganda. It's all about the saviour Jesus Christ - hand signals, ceremonies and other works are useless. - 02/21/2010 - anon
The truth hurts. Information confuse the ignorant. Religion appeal to the weak mind. If you have "faith" in your so call "religion" why do you feel the need defend it isn't beleiving enough. - This site speaks facts not faith - 02/20/2010 - Tim Ramirez
Thanks a lot -- I stumble across this page while doing serious research, and get sidetracked for hours as I am compelled to read (or, as with the carols, sing) aloud nearly every last word to my wife. Thanks to you, I'm never going to get anything done today. Oh, and my sides hurt, too. Thanks so much for the diversion -- you guys are brilliant! - 02/05/2010 - JR
I was a survivor of Satanic Ritual Abuse, (SRA) within the lovely Mormon Church. All my relatives, except for one, who was considered a black sheep, were Mormon. I would like the world to know, that Mormons appear stupid, in fact, they are so stupid that they can't tell the difference between Jesus and Satan, they actually think they are Brothers!!!!! I'm sure Jesus is a little pissed at this comparison, but hey, what do I know. I think having a sense of humor inspite of human stupidity is a huge bonus in this wee little life on planet earth. May I never have to go to Kolob and castrate a Mormon pervert.
Ex=Mormon, ex=family, ex=something or other. Struggling to make sense of Evil. - JennPen - 02/01/2010
As someone who was raised Mormon myself, I read this site with much interest and laughed a lot. I especially liked the name Labia McConkie--a creative detail.
I was a devoted Mormon for the first 30 or so years of my life, even served a devoted mission. But when I failed to marry, I was pushed to the periphery of the Church, which really alienated me.
I recently talked to my sister, still Mormon, about our nephew who graduated from BYU unmarried and is hovering around Provo, afraid to leave without a wife. This is sad. Having gone through this difficult period myself of not managing to marry and how this makes or breaks your place within Mormonism, I feel for him.
I'm now in a church, the Society of Friends, that is nurturing and accepting of all people, married, single, gay, straight, with children, or childless. This is a religion that is my true spiritual home, in a way Mormonism ceased to be when I no longer fit the rather narrow definition of what that entailed.
There is also gender equality in my new faith, which I LOVE. If Mormonism works for you, that's great. There are many fine people there and it can be a nurturing community.
If Mormonism is not for you, then there are many other paths to follow and other religious communities that can provide the spiritual guidance you may seek. Be gentle with yourselves. As Christ says, Peace be with you. - 01/21/2010 - Peace
I'm an exmo who thinks this site is hilarious and wish I'd found it sooner. To all the Mormons here whining about how disrespectful this site is and blah blah blah and eternal repercussions and blah blah blah, don't you have some scriptures to read or a small child to brainwash?
No one is interfering with your right to believe what you want, so don't interfere with our right to laugh at those same ridiculous things, we can't really help it if Mormonism provides us with so many things to make fun of.
I love it also how all the comments from Mormons are about how unfair this site is to them etc. Are there no thoughts at all for the deceased Jews? The same people writing these comments would be horrified if the tables were turned and Jews were baptizing their dead Mormon relatives. I have heard many times of the church wanting to baptize people who clearly and unequivocaly decided they did NOT want to be Mormon during their lives, so all this talk about giving people a choice after they die is ridiculous, they made their choice while they were alive. Is it so hard to believe that not everyone in the world wants to be Mormon and many people have happy, successful, fulfilled lives no thanks at all to TSCC??? - 11/15/2009 - Mor(m)on
Your site further confirms my suspicion that anyone who can believe in the virgin conception/birth of Jesus, the "empty tomb", or that the death of Jesus by the Romans was a bloody human sacrifice to atone for sin can, well, ...believe anything. - 03/25/2009 - Shelama
As an ex-mormon I love this stuff. You can't call your local missionaries and ask what the church is really about because they'll lie through their Kolobian teeth. As a member who was stalked and harrased by a high priest I am well aware of the "truth" behind this church. It's men with Napoleon complexes and women with no brains. Any women who wants her life goal to be a producer of billion spirit children has issuses I'm sure her bishop and psychologist will skim over. And to the mormons who come on these sites and bitch, they should be aware that they're going to perdition for breaking their law of obdience. Stick to your quakers on the moon. - 03/25/2009 - anon
I love this site! I have been laughing my ass off for an hour now. It is so true! Every thing you guys have said. I was married to a woman who left me for the mormon religion. And ,although sad, I am glad to see that I am not the only man in the world whose wife left him for a cult. When them Mormons get there hooks into a weak minded person they never let go. They just keep throwing more and more ropes until they got you hog tied. Ten they brand you and put you with the rest of the herd. Most mormons dont even realize that they are nothing more than part of the herd. Being fattened up for slaughter. As long as you are fat and healthy and making them money they keep you around.As soon as you are sick or old and no longer making them money they take you to the auction house. Anyways guys keep up this site. It is great!! The more the truth about the mormons gets out the better off the rest of the world will be!!! - 03/22/2009 - Cowboy Bob
I love these jokes! Thanks for posting them, and your other articles. I've just been researching LDS, and it has been quite disturbing. These jokes lightened the mood. :-) Hope all the TBM who find this get a bit of a shock. - 03/11/2009 - NotEmma
I have been a member of the LDS Church most of my 43 years on this planet. As far as I am concerned other LDS people need to lighten up! While I agree there is some misinformation on this site, for the most part it fits the Mormon stereotypes that many of us in the church joke about. Molly Mormons, green Jello, girls at BYU feeling your knee to see if you are an RM wearing garments, Utah Mormons and much more has all been fair game for a laugh. I have been to BYU and lived in Utah before and it really is "The Stepford Wives" on steroids! So, laugh at what amuses you and don't let minor things offend you. Life is way to short. - 01/08/2009 - garrett

This site is great.
Jesus Christ is just "santa claus" for grown ups.
Take your pick, Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ, Santa Claus are all the greatest hoaxes of modern man. - 1221/2008 - Chris McDonald

This is great! I was raised in a different religion myself, but let's face it: All religions are stupid! The quicker the planet is rid of religion, the better off we'll be. In the meantime, we can all laugh at all of them -- it feels better than crying. - 12/19/2008 - buggie
I kinda like this site. There's a lot of funny stuff here. Maybe my contribution won't be so funny because; From 1991 to 2001 the Mormons Boycotted my Nice KEY & COPY Convenience store till I was out of business.
Because of my lack of money my 1st wife wanted a DIVORCE. My kids were destroyed. I went to the Philippines and got a new wife and now that she's here I can't make enough money to please her either. I've been doing a string of maintenance jobs since 2001 to make a small income. I've been out of work since May2008. I've been turned down for numerous jobs all summer. My 2nd wife has lost patience with me and treats me like a DOG. I feel I have no future.
Here are a couple of statements, maybe others feel the same;
-As individuals Mormons are nice people- They cause trouble as a Group!
-When Mormons call you Brother, 'Watch your wallet, they want your money'!
-Mormons will steal your future too!
-The Mormon Church stole $400,000.00 from me. Will they ever make RESTITUTION?
-Restitution is for the Little People.
-RESTITUTION from the Mormons? Go ahead, MAKE MY DAY! - 11/26/2008 - Steve Nelson
Great site, very informative from the oher side of the coin, some interesting brainwashed responses. - 11/22/2008 - Ritaro
So some of this stuff was pretty dang funny. I am an active member and some of it kind of offended me. I really don't care if you like the church or not, but I bet you could do stand up comedy! Maybe a route you should consider. I'd pay to see you. I take all things with a grain of salt. I love the gospel with all my heart, but I can laugh also. Maybe try writing some political stuff. I would love to read it. - 11/05/2008 - Melissa
This is a great website and has helped me psychologically prepare leaving the church as I expect to become excommunicated by publishing some papers. In short, I feel at home on this website and as several others have mentioned, its nice knowing your not alone. - 09/07/2008 - Michael W
You HAVE to take note of yesterday's excommunication of the wonderful young man who came up with mormonsexposed.com. Just when I thought there was a ray of hope for the bunch of idiots they had to push the excommunication button.
Now just how many backsliders did Jesus excommunicate??? - 07/14/2008 - McJer
Ha, ha, I'm an active mormon and probably the only active mormon who found this site amusing. Sotty, can't deny it and yes there is some truth to all of it, but it's not the whole truth. I also enjoyed the south park mormon episodes. I think you should be able to laugh at your self and see the humourous side of it all. Although I also do realise how things like this offend some people. Like with the condom ad so many years ago with the picture of pope saying "Thou shalt use a condom". I thought it was funny but a lot of (cathlic) people did not find it amusing at all, which is fair enough. - 05/17/2008 - missy
thrilled to find this site tonight - ex-mormon and missionary who left the church a few months after coming back, when the fog lifted and I realized how fully my faith and willingness to work hard so God would love me had been exploited. Thanks to the maintainers of this site. And to those who seem to enjoy calling them to repentance so often, I can only wish a moment of clarity and the courage to follow it, no matter what following it unmakes. Mejor solo que mal acompanado. - 04/28/2008 - can't work for that corporation
I love your site as it expresses a terrific honesty. Sadly, the comments are filled with serious hostility and passive aggressiveness. There is a tremendous level of defensiveness and instead of attacking your premise they want to attack you personally. Keep up your efforts and don't let any of these miserable people bring you down. PEACE - 04/12/2008 - Empathetic
Thanks for your site. I really feel it's a service to many people who have been hurt by the "You Know". I won't even mention it, since it's kind of painful to mention at this time!!!
I hope more stuff will be posted, so that I can laugh and understand things more??? - 04/11/2008 - Jay
I had a neighbor once who was surprised to discover that my family was related to her family because our name was "Young" and so was she. (She was Mormon) I would like to find out if it is possible to have my name removed from the Mormon roles, if it is in fact listed there somewhere. I expect to arrive in heaven one day simply by virtue of the grace of God by which I have for some time been saved and I would be embarrassed if my name is listed on some Mormon roster. I cannot think of anything in my life that would commend me to God otherwise. I intend to sing to God, when I get into His presence, "Nothing in my hand I bring, only to thy cross I cling." After all, He it is who has said that is the only thing He would recognize that would commend me to Him. Thank you for some "delightsome" (good Mormon word?) reading. - 04/10/2008 - Bill Young (Good Mormon name?)
I believe that anyone who cannot make fun of their own religion needs a life. I am a faithful Latter-Day Saint, and I think some of the stuff you have on your site is very funny. I believe the leaders of the church are very wise, and I believe that they are very funny. I understand that you are not faithful members of the church and I respect your beliefs. I regularly crack up at the "Joseph Smith" episodes of "South Park," (Josep Smith was called a prophet, dum dum dum dum dum ^_^)and I think many people do as well. I am the only member of my family to ever join the church, and I am only 19. As you can probably tell, I come into much opposition to the church regularly, especially since I live in the Georgian part of the "Bible Belt." I look up information on my own to draw my own conclusions about the church. Factual history is everywhere, and I can understand why some of it isn't taught in the church; because though it is true, people will not understand. I thank you for your time. - 04/08/2008 - Joseph Doler
I've been up all night and reading the info from your site made me laugh admist my blood shot eyes!
I'm not a member of the church but after the St. Louis Temple opened I did the open house thing, I started to do a lot of research. A lot of how the temples were built made sense based on what the LDS folks believed. Anyway, I'd still love to get inside one - you know, one of the really pretty ones. Not the "mini-temples".
Anyway, great work! very entertaining. - 04/07/2008 - Mormon masquerade

I always enjoy seeing your additions to salamander society. That is the first web site I found. A friend emailed a picture. 3 hours later I had to force myself to stop reading. Thank you - 03/31/2008 - Brian S
I have suffered much since my sister fell in with some Mormons over a decade ago. They apparently consider me as daft as she, and have stalked my family religiously. It surpasses all patience and understanding.
Thank you for the amusement.
Sincerely, Plagued by Saints/SFB - 03/19/2008
Keep up the good works of your public service! We're all getting laughs and a good dose of much needed therapy. Just as the alcoholic never truly recovers, but instead learns to call him or herself the recovering alcoholic, I feel that we are all 'Recovering Mormons'. - 04/21/2007 - Rich
Go Salamander Society...piss of the mormons...they can't handle the truth about their church of lies. I hope they can still get through the "veil" with their secret names after they read through your site. LMFAO - 04/04/2007 - OMG
I am a practicing LDS so I should be offened at this site but I am not. The problem is that most of us who are devout take the religion (and almost everything else) way WAY too seriously. It's nice that someone makes fun of stupidity and says the things that some of us haven't got the balls to say out loud, yet think on a regular basis.
That section on masturbation is a stone-cold classic. Keep up the good work. - 04/03/2007 - c7h3mxi
YOUR SITE IS AWESOME! WELL RESEARCHED! THANKS A LOT! - 04/01/2007 - AWESOME
Cricket, your site helped me through some of the bad times as I began learning the truth about Mo'ism. There is great value in laughter; it helps the healing process. Thank you for that. - 03/31/2007 - Cousin Exmo
I am currently undergoing very expensive therapy and a course of medication that several doctors and a psycologist attribute to my twisted upbringing in the LDS cult.
I can not enjoy anything without feeling guilty. I have a constant feeling that whatever I am doing I should be doing something better/ more productive. I can't live in the now. I have had anxiety attacks galore. I was overwhelmed with a CONSTANT feeling of impending doom - punishment for things I can't do or things I do. I felt so miserable that I tried suicide. I prayed with all the sincerity of a person who wanted it to stop ANY WAY POSSIBLE and I got no reply. I was alone.
I am an introvert by nature, so dislike Mormon culture and never plan to marry. As a consequence I have been attacked verbally and psycologically by Mormons who constantly question my "choice" to live alone and not breed like a rabbit. I am intelligent enough to know the church is absolute garbage through study. I also feel that a true church of God would take into consideration the vast spectrum of human personality types as well as sexuality, culture, desires, abilty etc.
The cult does not. It expects all to conform as breeders who crave boring interactions with boring people while kids run around screaming. The cult thrives on guilt and hatred of those who don't conform to the social norms of the cult.
Guilt and fear are key. those who aren't crushed by these stay in the cult because they need its support network and socialisation.
People who leave the cult because they are miserable gain freedom.
I am still deprogramming myself. I am slowly realising that bad things happen just because they happen, not as some punishment for not believing or having enough faith. I am feeling happier than ever. I feel like a burden has been lifted.
How can the truth make so many people miserable? Members I know are not happy but are too integrated in Mormon culture to leave. They refuse to study aspects they fear might convince them of the falseness of the cult. They are so brainwashed.
It's all a lie. People who leave may have not found the "truth" but we have seen the lie. - 03/27/2007 - headhurts
OH you guys are just too funny, honestly!!!!LOLOLOLLOO got any more? thanks. - nuked
Many of the Mormon critics of this site complain about people attacking their church. They say "leave us alone". My answer is "Then stop trying to convert us to your cult". 03/15/2007 - nohinckster
Thanks for your website – It has brought me to tears on many occasions due to ‘light mindedness, loud laughter and evil speaking of the lards annointed’. Keep up the great work! - 03/11/2007 - Mike
Ok guys...as an ex-member all i have to say is that this site is the best. i think that it not only is funny as hell but also based on actual truth and real beliefs of the church. if these ever got put into production, i would buy all them up. i love it. and to all you active members who are uoset and call this site "tasteless", grow up and shut the hell up. if you are going to put stupid ruls and restrictions on your members and then get upset because people don't agree with you and try to find some humor in it the you are the ones with issues. the way that your "sacred" religion treats it's members and the bull shit it trys to push on others is absolute shit. and if you could think and act for yourselves then you wouldn't need some olf senial man telling you that you can't drink caffene and can't wear what you want without getting critizism from other members. you mormons make me sick and you need to get with the 21st century. - 02/10/2007 - veronica

hi, i just want to say that i am glad that someone out there sees the mormon church for what it really is. I know and understand that the things portrayed are very sacred to the mormon church, but i also know that people died for their religion and beliefs in the holocost and proxy babtism for them is just as sacreligious. I hope more people help to get the truth of mormonism out there, cause the lord knows that they need to be saved, and when youre dead its too late. - 02/06/2007 - arw
Hahahahaa.. this is funny shit. Those who are offended, get a life! Some ppl have no sense of humor, and another thing.. everything shown is a true representation of Mormonism. - 01/31/2007 - Tone
I am amazed by the silly "testimonies" the TBMS leave on this site. They sure have learned to use fear as a tool in their dialogue (i.e., "Don't say you weren't warned etc.")...those primary lessons really helped. And the hypocrisy is so fun to expose as well: Mormons have been the most biggoted of cults for the last 150 years. Indeed, I remember learning that "niggers" would never have the priesthood when I was in primary, and that it would be unholy to marry a "chink". Not to mention being trained that the rest of the churches and ministers are false, employed by the devil and damned to hell. What a lot of silly crap to have to sweep out of my mind. - 01/29/2007 - Jagman64
Thanks for this website... This comment isn't worth putting up there, but I just wanted to say thanks. I'm trying to get over more than 45 years in the church. This site helps. - 12/29/2006 - Fenster
Hope this is flattering. I made a few Merry Smithmas cards using the 2005 Joseph Smith nativity scene photos from www.salamandersociety.com and the poem Joseph The Con Man by Gale. I left everyone's logo and byline on. I only mailed out a few but I think they'll be a big hit with my recipients. The Joseph nativity scene is on the front, the poem inside, and a miniaturized Angel Moroni view of baby Joseph in the crib on the back. - 12/20/2006 - Choose The Real
I am a born-again Christian, and I stumbled upon this website by accident. It is a Godsend, in any event. I left the Mormon Church in '92 after much reading up on the teachings that were supposed to be real and absolute, and we were definitely required to just blindly go along with it, but I know now that all of us were duped, had our chains jerked. My complete exodus was based not solely on the Book of Mormon and the fact that it's a badly written piece of science fiction, but also because the Jesus that the Mormons worship and believe in is not the Jesus of the Bible. - 12/21/2006 - LGT

I was raised Mo-mo - and I'm just so glad I come from a minority religion,(well outside of Utah) that will just have to get used to being made fun of. Well, for complete non-Mormons to lampoon us too disrespectfully might be a little uh disrespectful. But somebody born and attempting to be raised needs to air their thoughts. And no-one burns your house down.
(Well, any more - in Brigham's time you might have been accidentally accosted by "Zion's" toughs, often to the point of death, with speeches of the prophet and apostles not exactly preaching against the practice either. It's so ironic so many Mormons tend to be Repubs and so, for example, support polices which try to dicourage theocracies from forming in the wake of the Baath party rule in Iraq .
Interesting site. Thanks! And good luck:^) - 05/07/2006 - kimball_hunt

I am a recent convert to the chuch and this site is hillarious. I better not tell my Bishop that I like it this much. - 04/28/2006 - Convert by the Skirt

Thank you for the wonderful laughs! Keep up the good work! 04/28/2006 - Bambi
I am enjoying your site. I look at one topic every day. When I decided to leave the Mormons, I had to be secretive. I did not know anyone else who was "losing their faith." I am so grateful to find that I am not the only one.
I left in 1988... lost my faith much earlier. Also, because of the non-logic of Mormon life, it was difficult to formulate what bothered me about the church. I am a much different person since I left. AND much happier. - 04/23/2006 - Cynthia
Love the site! Keep up the good work (fix some of the broken links so that we can enjoy more thoroughly). Again, you rock!! - 04/02/2006 - jen
The Mormons scare me in many ways. To outsiders like myself, they seem like a faithful group that are family-oriented and like any non-denominational Christian group.
Once I started learning about them and talking to them, I got weirded out. Then, I tried to debate a little with two missionaries. Here's my (and everybody else's) experience.
TBM: Blah blah blah about BOM for 20 minutes.
Me: Well, that seems to contradict the Bible in-
TBM: I don't want to argue about it. Pray about it.
Me: *incredulous after listening for 20 minutes to them they won't listen to me*
A friend of mine had an interesting experience with some. He had the same thing happen, but he asked to see the TBM's Bible. He didn't have one on him. My friend, a Roman Catholic seminarian, was incredulous. My friend: You're a missionary, and you don't have a Bible? TBM: I have one at home, just not here.
Huh. Nice people when looking from the outside, way screwed up beliefs. - 03/03/2006 - Josh, RC seminarian

From Jesus H. W. Christ
Satan and I were out playing planetary Bocce last weekend and he asked if I'd seen your website yet. He's been bugging me to have a look for a couple years now. Understand that I'm still using a CompuServe dial-up account so surfing the web is just not that fun, and I'm just not that interested in the Internet. Now that I've seen your site I may just get a broadband connection so I can see the images quicker!
Mormons have always been a sheepish bunch, interesting as hell to watch, but a complete pain-in-the-ass to be around. I think the word 'sanctimonious' was created just for describing the old bald white guys who run the organization. If they would only loosen up a little they have some great ideas and methods for bringing local communities together. Their problem is endemic to any church that sprouts from the ideas of a motivational speaker like J. Smith. They mistake those ideas for the mind of god.
Let me set the record straight right now (if anyone will use their dad-given brain). If some 14-year-old wandered into the woods right now to inquire about the 'true church' he would be given the same answer that was allegedly given by dad and myself back in the early 1800's, NONE of the churches represent the truth of god. NONE!!! Sorry, not even the mormons. God said a long time ago that he wouldn't play favorites, and I'll tell you first hand, the old man is still the crotchety old curmudgeon he was the day he created what you earthly mortals reference as the Universe.
Okay, so I'm supposed to be the compassionate brother and usually I am. I've got a soft spot for mormons, unlike my brother who can make a joke about anything. But I want to slap any religious zealot when they start making moral judgements on each other from positions of supposed authority (which I might add, was never given by me.) And it really pisses me off when they refer to the mental illness that is rampant in Utah as 'just a sign that the devil is working hard on the chosen spirits in the last days.' Sheesh! Tell mormons to quit blaming my brother and take some responsibility once in awhile.
I've got judgement day all ready for those sour, judgemental geezers. I'm gonna be sitting back in an Adirondack chair surrounded by porn stars and a cold Corona in my scarred hand. I expect they'll walk on by looking for the same apocalyptic grail and luminous being they wasted their entire life looking for. I'm just gonna let 'em wander around for awhile and there'll be others who will walk on by as well. Dipshits like Oral Roberts, Parsley, Falwell, and Robertson. They'll get together and form some catharsis for their proud souls. Whatever.
Anyway, thanks for good laugh! I love the muffler man and wish more humans would follow their wonderful and twisted imaginations into realms unknown. It's the diversity of life and experience that the gods crave, not the suppression of life and control of fellow beings. It's ironic that the very essence that holds organized religion together is the evil that they claim to preach against.

I am a ex-mo that works in an Idaho office full of Morgbots that continually regale each other with stories from their missions (I thought football heroes were notorious about living in the past, but ex-mishies are worse!) and criticizing my tea habit as soul destroying while they slam down highly caffeinated energy drinks. I need comic relief! Thanks, Salamander! - 07/20/2005
I remember my days before my mission, surfing the internet for anything I could get my hands on. To say I had a subversive streak would be putting it mildly.
Then there, in front of me was people wearing funny costumes, shaking each others hands. Wow, I thought. How could this be?
Thanks be to cricket, for stripping the holier than thou attitude from my mind. Why, in thinking back to the slamtoons I had seen on the web in pictorial form, I almost bursted out laughing during my first temple endowment in the Las Vegas temple in 1998. - 07/12/2005 - Stuck in the American dream

Hi guys; honestly I don't know where to begin. I have found your web page by accident, and I started to read and got my attention and found it quite intersting. I've being a member of the church for over 10 years, married virgin in the temple to an RM, had children rite away. And then at 24 I was divorced with two children and facing the reality of the church. And I thought,_ Great! I am divorced in mormonland!
Honestly, I am just desapointed, and I really do not have anybody to talk about this because all my friends and people I know are LDS! Now I can see I am not alone, (I think). If you guys know how I can contact others like me, let me know. - 06/22/2005 - Susana

I must say that this "church" has cost me more friends because according to their parents I was a bad influence. What they really were trying to say was don't hang with that guy; he's Jewish. So this site has allowed me to convert that anger to laughter at the complete nonsense those fools take so damn serious.

Last year when I was looking for information on a lesson I was teaching I came across this page. I thought the Lampoon was a humor sight for LDS people (Which I guess it is in one way or another). I was stunned, to say the least. It's one of the things that got the ball rolling for me.
I think I'll have a drink to the Lampoon tonight! Thanks cricket! - 04/30/2005 - from I cannot reveal it at this time

I don't have any LDS story, because I was raised SDA (Seventh Day Adventist) which sounds about as repressive and introverted as the stories I read here.

I have to say, I love this site. The funniest thing here though is "Mr Bigglesworth's excelent adventure " by Touya Tskino. I almost peed my pants I laughed so hard. I love the "revelations" picture!

Your Lampoon site is an integral part to recovery. It shows people how to laugh at the guilt that held them.
Yes, there is healing in truth, but I think the best healing comes from humor. We exmos need both, truth and humor. Steve, your site is #1 for healing humor!

Last summer, as a wavering True Believing Mormon, I had engaged in a bloodying battle of words with a well-known exmo when I was IM'ing with my wife. She sent me a link to the Lampoon with the warning: These are TERRIBLE!
I laughed, I got angry, but mainly I lingered longer and I eventually found my way to www.exmormon.org and read some exit stories with paragraphs that sounded like I had written them. The rest, as they say, is history. I can't say that you are the reason I am an apostate, but you sure helped. For that, I am grateful. Heavenly hugs and Kolob kisses! - 02/20/2005 - NMUgrad

WOW!!! absolutely great site. I am Canadian and unfortunately was born into the church. At 16 I stopped going, big war with my parenst ensued, and just this year my brother left for a mission. This has been very hard for me as I know he is leaving for 2 years to preach a falsehood he has nad not choice to believe. Lately I have been reading and researching everything I can to reinforce what I know to be true:The church is a lie. This site has given things a more humorous break. Awesome site...I am sure to be a grequent visitor. You know what you guys need? Merchandise...T-shirts, posters etc. I would but some for sure. Keep up the good work!! - 01/22/2005 - anon

The whole Lampoon site is fabulous. I've not had such gut-chrunchin' loud-laughter evil-speaking-type entertainment in many a long, depressing year. The Roulette section is particularly hilarious, with such greats as the Top-Tens, and G-A lookalikes. The General Authority Roundup section was also hysterical, especially the infamous "Fourteen Principles of Following the Prophet." The truth hurts, alright ... from all the straining that diaphram does as you're rolling around on the floor. - 12/25/204 - Kevin
I thoroughly enjoy your sense of humor!
BTW, my favorite slamtoon is the protestor in front of the morg's new edifice complex with sign that proclaims "Jesus is coming and is he pissed that you haven't done your home teaching." That sentiment really resonated with me last year when I was first introduced to latterdaylampoon.com. I wondered how I ever took myself so seriously as a morgbot.
Another good one is the kids looking out the window at the SLC temple and the one youth has decided to do a Google search for "temple endowment" when he gets home. Brother, will that ever open up Pandora's box, but better that he learn the truth now than in the middle of an endowment session.
You do a great service for the Internet seekers of truth and levity, Crickett! - 12/01/2004 - Keith
I was ROFLMAO reading some of the songs that people have made up to popular tunes, and standard church (no capital "C") hymns. I passed them along to my friends who also enjoyed them immensely. One is an ExMO wannabe, but she just doesn't want the hassle of dealing with the priesthood once she tells them she wants her name removed from the church records. I met her when she was in my current ward, and I was doing time-- er, I mean serving as Relief Society President. (5 years, all told.)
Another friend who enjoyed them was a girl like me who every now and then wants to slap the shit out of some people at church. You know the types-- people whose entire life is lived at home and at church, and on the road between them. Ugh. One of these narrow-minded individuals sent me a (chain) email, asking me to boycott Blockbuster Video because they carry the film, Latter Days. (It's about a missionary who discovers that he is gay.) Don't these folks have anything better to do? I for one am not going to boycott anyone for exercising their God-given right to freedom of expression.
I wrote a note to the film production company after viewing their web site. Both actors in the film are pretty cute-- and one is totally hot! (But don't tell anyone because I'm not supposed to have sexual fantasies about anyone except my husband, right???) I could lose my temple recommend... Oh, never mind-- I married a Catholic, so my marriage doesn't "count"!!!
I just wanted to let you know that there are those of us who are members of the church who appreciate your sense of humor and applaud your self-expression. The site is totally hilarious and I think that Stray Mutt is a songwriting genius!! I think my favorite is "Count Your Many Failings" I laughed until I thought I was going to throw up when I read that one! - 12/01/2004 - Donna
In my heart I am a disaffected member of the LDS church (i.e., I don't give a rats ass about it or anything in it.) However, I was born into the church and was a TBM until these past couple of years. So, superficially speaking I am an active member of the LDS church (i.e., I go to church, people think I have a great knowledge of the gospel, and they think I would make a great elders' quorum teacher, etc.) It's all horseshit. I love this site. It helps me keep my head on straight. As for me, I guess I will continue to pretend that "all is well in Zion." - 11/20/2004 - anon
I love your very funny, naughty, website! I've been there and done that (including being a decendent of one of the polygamist founders of Draper, UT(nee: Draperville).

Good morning to you all fake smiles, fake friends, Molly Mormons, members of the penishood, and you poor folks about to get trapped in this corporation of corruption and brainwash! I think that you will find my testimony (not testicules since I leave those to my husband) pretty entertaining and enlightening this morning:1)We are all blessed in many ways through the work of others and we should all thank God for what we've come to learn.
I searched, I found, I left.: Thank God and thank you Latterday Lampoon, Packham, and others! 2) I want to bare my testimony that this church is true: truely full of bullshit, truely full of lies, truely full of brainwashing, truely hiding things from its members and investigators, truely stupid, truely weird, truely full of pompous asslicking assholes that will go to any lengths just to look good, etc...3)I want to bare my testimony about the prophets and General Authority: Man, these guys smoke good stuff and I wanna know where the hell they buy it so I can get some too since sharing is devine and they've got some money of mine! 4)I want to bare my testimony that Joe Smith was a charlatan and a pedophile and hope to one day go pee on his grave as well as dig him up and watch him rot! 5)Finally folks, I wanna bare my testimony about what a wonderfull ward (Sherbrooke, Québec. Canada) this is and how happy I am to be rid of all the lying, hypocrit, snobish assholes who rejected my husband and made a mockery of our marriage simply because he's not interested in becoming a member of this joint!

Gentleman, I have one thing to say...I love this fucking site. You see, Mormonism and all these other religions are nothing but fairy tales to keep the masses in check! Moron history, shows nothing more than twisting the nuts of a story book called the bible, so the leaders of the time, J Smith, B. Young, could look like deities and get more than their share of ass. Guys like that Korish from Waco were just born a little too late, and in the wrong state. Put him in Utah during Smith and Young's time, and he'd be in their silly book.

I am so very glad to be out of Utah, and even happier that I am not a Momo. I believe in respecting all religions, but I don't think that Mormonism close to qualifying as one.

Dear Latter Day Lampoon:
My neighbors are LDS people and they have been trying for years to get me to go to church with them. I go to a womens group once a month with her and noticed that the young women in the group are so obsessed with getting pregnant they dont know what to do other than worry about that. Things seemed funny to me about this group so I asked the neighbor if they had a book on their principles and she gave me Gospel Principles book to read.
Now after reading it my first reaction was.....OH MY GOD you have to be either brain washed to believe this stuff or Despriatly searching for anything you can find because your lonely or depressed. (Mentally ill came to mind) So then I decided to search the web and find out the truth from people that are no longer LDS followers (a great way to find out the truth about thing ask someone who use to do it) and this site came up.
Thank you it is a wonderful eye opener. I have been teaching womens studies and religion for many years now and this was one of my last religions to look into. It's got quite a little tale to tell.
Thanks for the site and information. - 02/13/2004 - LillyAnn

Gday from Australia ,Absolutely love your 13 articles of face saving and only just stopped laughing. Going by what the TBMs (True Believing Mormons) have to say sadly it's so so true - 01/27/2004 - from soon to be ex mo
I like the new cartoons I just discovered thanks to GJ praising his own on exmormon.org, and want to salute him and the others. Gay power! - 01/27/2004 - Diri
I read that you have lampooned the sale of bloody garments that Scott Falater wore when he killed his wife in Phoenix.
You know, I actually have some of the bloody garments Scott wore when he killed his wife, Yarmilla Falater in Phoenix. I'm his younger brother, Tom.
The real tradegy of Mormons is their impact on lives and the fact that they ruin and take away from people's lives and control them to such a degree where such things as blood atonement is possible. You are able to make such fun of Mormons because of their utter lunacy and ridiculousness. You simply can not measure the overall negative impact that Mormons - and other religions - have on families and generations of people who have gone to war, suppressed others, and killed their wives all in the name of God.
Religion seems to be an easy safe haven for the abused and I can see why Scott assimulated so easily into Mormonism. His own family is highly abusive and unloving, he has no sense of belonging at all. How sad that the very organization that he thought would help him would be his own undoing by instilling in him ridiculous thoughts of redemption and duty. - Tom
Editor's note: The Lampoon agrees with the conclusions Tom makes and expresses sadness and regret to both families involved in this tragic incident.
Hi my name is kelly and im from Australia, i really love your web site,it is thanks to this web site that i am now anti mormon and proud of it. Keep up the good work. - 01/15/2004 - Kelly
Wow!!!!! I was an investiagtor who was arranging my baptism when the Lord got a hold of me, and I accepted Him as my Savior. Looking back I could not believe that I thought Joseph Smith to be a legit Prophet! I have two years of my life which was incredibly painful and I wish I could erase. Looking at this sight really helped me laugh!! Everything from the Mormon interviews to the Salamander awards are great!! Keep it up!!
Well I better get back to digging in my back yard! Who knows what I'll find there which can be some ancient text!! - 01/14/2004 - anon
While there is a strong part of me that is uncomfortable about judging ones faith or lack thereof, I have to say that I still appreciate your site for sheer amount of information and lack of denominational bias. I also think that any claim of truth should be quite capable of rolling with the punches and laughing at itself. Based on the responses by TBM's (True Believing Mormons), it seems most Mormons are incapable of this. Since the LDS church is a proselyzing Church it has less excuse for being so incapable of accepting criticism. - 12/20/2003 - akspdx
I love your sight...how about starting one for the Catholics and Jews too. - 12/09/2003 - anon
Fantastic! What a great site well done,just my cup of tea,thankyou. - 12/01/2003 - erbeeflower
I love this web sight. I'm reading the John Krackauer book "Under the Banner of Heaven" and have been diligentley studying the mormons. WOW! could you please send SlamToons to my e-mail address? - 11/25/2003 - from timjf2
As a former missionary, and High Priest while in my mid 20's, and having sat in as a Bishop's councillor in excommunication hearings, I laughed my ass off at your site. - 11/23/2003 - anon
Ya'all, I was given my freedom,er, walking papers,um, excommunication papers in 1982 & haven't been nearly as pleased w/anything else as much since then--until NOW!! Came upon your site by accident, enjoyed immensely!! Keep up the good works!!! Gaylene - 11/20/03
p.s. if signing onto this site sends missionaries to my door I'll drop a house on all of you!!!
Damn, makes me wish I had been a Mormon so I could know all the low-down on all these inside jokes and observations. Y'all are so luck to be oppressed by the Mormon Church. I was oppressed by the Baptist church and it is no where near as cool. - 11/16/2003 - Michael
Mormons are the enemies of the world and need to be stopped. I find it hard to believe that any one in their right mind would join or stay in the cult (can't bring myself to call the mormons a church). - 11/15/2003 - anon
Our cake top decoration, a blown glass temple, broke and shattered. I got on the internet to do a search to find where I could buy a new one. I typed in 'glass temple' . The hits returned included one at 'latterday lampoon'. I went there and my eyes about popped out of my head. Holy freakin hilarious. Um, I better not be here.... this is apostate stuff right? But I kept finding myself coming back and reading.
After slyly reading the lampoon several days in a row, I hit on the section where I believe it was women were talking about how garments sexually repressed them. Dehumanized them. I was reading my thoughts but they were written by someone else!!!! Oh my GOSH! SO I'M NOT CRAZY! What a relief! That was a huge moment for me. I was sad that others were going through it, but I was SO glad that I wasn't some sinner for hating those gawd awful garments. I think it was about a week later that I took them off for good. Several months later they found a home in the garage. - 11/11/2003 - Sunshine
I LOVE your Site,.... It's wonderful, Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!! I'd go into the gory details of my personal experience, but you have expressed them so perfectly, that there is no need, and I am a total fan! - 11/04/2003 - Love Note from a recently dubbed "unworthy" cousin:)
Your site is f#@$ funny. Thanks for exposing the cult for what it is. - 11/03/2003 - from Andy
I think that your site is just wonderful-thank god for you youngsters - 10/31/03 mostink
It's so ironic that the rich veins of of comedic gold that adorn this site and evoke such gut-aching laughter due to our apostate perspectives could only produce yawns and shrugs from nevaMos who just don't get the nuances and oxy-Mor(m)onic punch lines. It only makes sense if you have been thru it even tho it still makes no sense even then. However, it does serve up a tremendous (for me, anyway,) bosom-purging, cathartic releif from years of sheepdum to be able to laugh out loud at the sheer tonnage of bufoonery belching forth for 170+ years!
Thanks for the mammaries and please continue giving 'em heck! (that is to say, give 'em telestial glory.) Elohim/her surely knows the assholes have truly earned it. Peace, my Brothers and Sistern. - 10/20/2003 - from Reggie of Mesa/Snowflake
I am glad you are around to counteract the insanity known as LDS because it is a cult based on a work of fiction. The similarity between Free Masonry is startling and the British Israelism is both racist and archeologically wrong - 10/19/2003 - Phil
I find most of these slamtoons and pictures on here quite funny...I live in Utah but I am not Mormon, and I understand all the jokes about the Church. I hope to see more pictures/cartoons on here....... :-) - 10/18/2003 - Utah Non-Mormon Girl
As a "doorbell recruit" who has spent some time talking to the "missionaries",and who also knows what "Don't eat that, Elmer" REALLY implies, I got a great deal of enjoyment (oh, OK: gut-busting, pants-pissing sardonic, semi-sad laughter) out of your site. A suggestion for names for some of your correspondents: Elders Bill Schmidt (Smith), Horst Schmidt (Horace Smith) ,Shep Schmidt, Doug Smitt, and Sister Kate Schmidt (the mean one) - 10/11/2003 - from EPISCOPALIAN_UNPLUGGED
I found your website while searching for information about the Mormon Church, my brother and his family are Mormon's and it's becoming more and more of a burden on my heart to see this wonderful family caught up in a cult. You've given me some good information and some food for thought. - 10/05/2003 - anon
This website is awesome and hilarious!! Keep up the good work!! I am non-mormon and never really paid attention to mormons before I got snowed in Salt Lake City while passing through it. I had to stay two days there and although a pretty location there is not much to do there - that temple area is really overrated and that stupid movie they offer on the tour is so god-damned stupid it's offensive. I can't believe people believe that crap - it was so sappy and made Joseph Smith appear like Christ.
I guess the mormons probably think it is true as a lot of them were crying and moved by it. The only movement I got was in the bowels and made great use of one of the toilets on the temple grounds. That loaf was my sacrificial offering to the mormons and Joseph Smith. - 09/10/2003 - anon
This site is awsome. Thanks so much for creating something every lds person with a sence of humor can enjoy. - 09/08/2003 - Kimberly
I am from Czech republic, and now I live in France for 4 months /excuse me for my English/I started to asociate with LDS and thrice I visited their chappel, then I started to study something about them and alsou you wwwldslampoon.com is very beneficial. It shows whats this Restored Church really is, I dont want have nothing common with them, I want to have Jesus as my Lord, not Mr Hincley or other men. Your page is funny, but I can imagine, that it is not always funny a humorous to see for example your neigbours and friends, who are LDS, and you love them, how they are leading astray. You helped me very much and continue go on.
Hey there, Great site! It made me stop hating the mormons for five minutes because I was laughing so hard at them. Keep up the good work! - 09/04/2003 - anon
Ya know, the TBM's (True Believing Mormons) reactions to your sight just proves a truism: Fanatics have no sense of humor.
Keep up the good work. And to all you moron TBM's out there who express doubt in the truthfulness of the stories on this sight, I can only say that the half-dozen or so that I submitted are all ABSOLUTELY true. - 08/04/2003 - from former RC, former LDS
LOL - you're site is hilarious! I'm a former mormon who is seeking after the path of Karaite Judaism, and it helps me to remember not to ever be too serious about life :) - 07/214/2003 - from yoshiah
This site is great, I need to follow through and send in my resignation letter. Thank you for putting in the time to spoof the church, there are some things one needs to be able to laugh at, after the fact, ya know?
I love your website! I am a Lavey Satanist and find your humor very much in touch with the way most Smart People end up seeing a Organized Religion. Your website truly is a breath of fresh air in a sea of stagnant, stuffy religious crap.
I got an invitation to a new Temple awarded to my town. Turns out there are a certain amount of wards and that warrants a huge monstrosity being built. Ever think it was like collecting box-tops to get a prize?
Anyhow, I had sex with an ex-mormon and damn, was she a firecracker. Fallen Catholic women are like that too.
Keep up the good work! - 07/05/2003 - from A. Nony Mouse
I was 17 when I got out of the church. And I've got some 21/23-year-old pansies telling me they need rules to live. Maybe I'm just primitive, but I've been afraid too. There are things that are much more scarier than abandoning a cult. Some call me brave, but I was just afraid of a greater evil if I stayed in the Mormon Corporation; corruption. Thanks for your site man, hopefully we'll be able to straight up some lives. We might not be right, but then again, being able to stand up on your own is a merit to be proud of :)- 06/25/2003 - Mashka
Tanned and sinful gives you two-thumbs-up!! I'm being very nostalgic about my mormon days, since the guy I liked for so long has supposedly gotten married to some mormon goody goody. I feel sad because I was supposedly shedding some "dangerous light" into his mind, which made him doubt a "bit" more than just our relationship. I couldn't take his pansy behaviour anymore, told him I was dating someone else and he never wrote back. Then he drops a 2 line EMAIL telling me he's getting married. After that, we started emailing each other like everyday, each time getting more comfortable with one another(after months of silence). And suddenly he just stopped writing, like a week before his wedding. I think he problaby was having some mixed feelings, and preferred to stop talking to me so that his marriage wouldn't be 'at risk'. I feel bad though. I have definitely moved on, but I think he's got himself in a real mess, by marrying someone he doesn't seem to be in love with. Thanks to the Mormon Church, another life is ruined. Oh well...Keep up the good work though, there's still time for lots of people!! - 06/25/2003 - :D
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SITE. It brings me closer to NOT understanding the mo co-worker who does not allow cups of coffee in her car yet calls caffeine in chocolate "natural", who instead of buying a swimsuit bought a modest wetsuit, and feels far superior to others for no apparent reason. You have some new fans!!! Thanks! - 6/25/2003 - powderpuff153
I love the LAMPOON!! It is an important part of my recovery from Mormonism. - 06/19/2003 - Alex
I really appreciate your humor, probably because Im not LDS. My boyfriend is, and its an interesting time as we really start to talk about him wanting me to read the Book of Mormon and 'give it a chance'. I just wanted to know if you associate yourselves with any religion, and if so what? And also if you have any suggestions on how I can try to make my VERY Mormon boyfriend see the falsehood and lie he is living.... Help! - 06/06/2003 - anon
I LOVE your website! Keep up the good work! You made my journey out of Mormonism entertaining. The "Not So Nice Mail" is by far the funniest part, it wasn't so long ago I would have been one of the ones writing you a not so nice mail. (However, my spelling would have been better than most of them though!) I'd like to end my testimony by saying "The Church is NOT true" "Joseph Smith was NOT a prophet of God" And to all you TBM's (True Believing Mormons) out there: Keep those e-mails coming, I can always use a good laugh! - 05/30/2003 - from pondepelican
I found your website informative and helpful, thanks! - 05/11/2003 - from gqdr77
I am never dissapointed by the "true believers" and their absolute demonstration of hate and anger for those of us that have opted out. This is a blatant example of the type of dualistic nonsense that permeates the Mormon Church. Love thy neighbor, unless he's an ex. Keep up the good fight. - 05/02/2003 - from R.Oliver
I really enjoy your page, it is funy and perks me up. I havent been to the church in about 20 yrs. Alot of my neighbors are lds. It is tempting ot get their emails and forward copies to them all. lol. I am sure the danites would figure me out, I better not..thanks again and god bless ur work! - 04/04/2003 - from bonnebela
I don't think this belongs in the hate mail section because I do not hate you, and despite being a devout believer in the gospel of Christ as revealed through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I am not offended by the material I've read here. I love you and your staff and I am sincerely sorry for your wounds. I hope that someday you will be able to transcend your collective pain.
Some of the jokes I laughed at, a few others left me with a sad aching. Where laughter is, sadness is usually not far behind. I think I understand very well the difficulties of people who have joined the ranks of "black sheep," but my own personal spiritual experiences are so vivid, strong, and pure- that despite the foibles and spiritual vanities of my brothers and sisters inside the church (and out) I remain a steadfast member. I think the church is a labratory for spiritual growth and we choose how to use it in our lives. We need to look inside rather than outside ourselves to find God and realize our connection with him (or however you may visualize deity or a higher power).
Agency is a beautiful thing, a principle I am passionate about, and I support your right to express yourself in the manner you choose to.
Good luck on your life journey and God bless. I hope you find peace and joy in this life and the next. - 03/27/2003 - Much Love, Abby
This page is great. I too once delved into the flirt and convert of the MoClan (I was the hapless victim...the beautiful sirens of the MoChurch were the temptation). Fortunately, I was not born without a brain and, as my parents intended, grew up Independently minded...but mindful of my Inter-Dependance on other human beings to help keep me sane and happy. I write to you simply to say, "Thank You" for all the voiceless, secret, spiers of your website. - 03/14/2003 - iamsgtrock2003
Hi, if the LDS Church suddenly announces "gay is ok and just fine in the
eyes of God" will you then have a burning-in-your-bosoms and rejoin the
p.s. funny stuff, but didn't like the poons about Jesus, and the mockering of temple clothes and tokens went a "wee" too far I tinks. - 03/11/2003 - from Darrick Evenson
This is an absolutely hilarious site! I've been searching for information on Mormonism for a paper I'm writing and will include some of the burger jokes in an appendix. Great wit! - 03/07/2003 - anon
You WEB is a gas, but way too mild. I grew up in Brigham City, (mid 50's) as a Catholic. A child could not have been treated worse. Sadly, my own daughter experienced the same discrimination and issolation when she and her mother lived in good old Bountiful Utah. - 03/05/2003 - MacAllaw
I love your site, it has really made me laugh out loud many times. I began writing funny rants on Mormonism myself about five years age. Some of these jokes are at www.geocities.com/mormoncomedy. Check it out- Bill. - 03/02/2003
I'm very happy to have discovered your excellent - and inevitable - website. I was raised baptist, but have long dispensed with the crutch of religion. I have no problem with the concept of a creator, per se, but I take exception to those who profess to speak on his behalf. My nine years working and living in Utah have only served to bring this attitude into a sharper focus. I find it is much more informative to observe the behaviour of these self-professed saints than to listen to their glorified depiction of their history and way of life.
As an ex-employee of a small town that shares the name of their current "voice of God," I have personally witnessed how drastically mormon behaviour departs from mormon teaching. Over the course of my five years of working as Hinckley's Maintenance Supervisor, I became aware that an appointed official of the town was stealing public funds, much of which was perpetrated by illegal purchases placed on a credit card issued in my name by the town council, which was to be used for purchasing parts and materials on behalf of the town's maintenance needs.
The person responsible for the theft was a member in good standing in the local L.D.S. ward. I approached both the former and current town mayor about my concerns over this situation, to no avail - covering each other's butts seems to be an integral part of maintaining the mormon illusion of saintliness. It was not until information about the current mayor's illegal use of his own town card came out that he chose to look into the matter. Now, of course, he is taking credit for having brought the person to justice while at the time he was not much interested in the problem. There is so much emphasis placed on missionary activities by the church, you would think that someone would be concerned about leaving such a bad impression on a non-believer, but that has not been the case. I intend to get out of Utah as soon as possible. I am currently writing about my exposure to the true mormon morality. Thank you.
I would like to thank you for your website. I am non-LDS who has recently relocated to SLC. People outside of Utah HAVE NO IDEA what it is like. Mormons outside of UT/AZ/ID/CO are completely different from those who live in the inter-mountain west. It is HAPPY VALLEY here. People are very close minded, very 'cliquey', they will purposely ignore your children if they are not LDS. I could go on forever. I cannot wait to get out of SLC and away from the crazies. - 02/19/2003 - utahhounddog
I'm not a mormon but after reading this stuff. I feel a lot better about being raised baptist. - 02/16/2003 - anon
I have to say, I enjoyed your site quite a bit, laughing all the way through it. Me, being a Nondenominational Christian found the satriacal humor incredibly funny and the mocking of Mormons even better.
While some may say that I am just as blinded as the Mormons, if you knew me, you'd think different.
Anyhow, keep on keeping on. Someone's got to do this, and I'm glad it's you guys. - 02/15/2003 - from firstname.lastname@example.org
I LOVE THIS WEBSITE!! I am a Catholic currently dating a Mormon who is trying to tell me that "After I take the 6 discussions, I'll understand..." Understand why I'm going to HELL (or the TELESTIAL KINGDOM) because I'm Catholic?? I don't know about anyone else, MY GOD wouldn't do that, and even Catholics, who have the reputation for being "RIGHT" don't believe that, the Catholic Cathechism preaches that any religion will go to Heaven, so long as they believe and follow the word of Christ. SO, as far as being right or wrong, I think I'll carry a 5th of JACK DANIELS in my pocket so I can enjoy my ride to eternal damnation in the TELESTIAL KINDGDOM since I can NEVER BE WITH GOD!! - 02/12/2003 - anon
Howdy, Guys! I've loved your web site for years now, and have introduced several of my friends to its humor. One night during a snow storm, my friends and I gathered around the warmth of my monitor and laughed (loudly) ourselves sick for about 2 hours.
Anyway, I've noticed in your "Not-So-Nice-Mail" section that those LDS who post something generally have the English skills of Courtney Love pre-rehab? Also, why is it assumed that A) you're a bunch of drooling alcoholics, and B) that you're gay? I don't get it. - 02/07/2003 - Shakjula
Your site is by far the most creative and hysterical website I have EVER seen regarding the Mormon faith. I, being a non-practicing Mormon, can totally appreciate the humor as I find the religion to be one of the most far-fetched and historically inaccurate out there. Shit, I hope I don't get struck down for that remark;) Anyway, good job...bravo....keep it comin'!!!! I LOVE YOU GUYS! - 01/27/2003 - from LLAMA LOVER
A Ex-mormon who left the church 11 years ago and knows the truth that the church is not real. It's a cult and thanks for the wonderful site. I just wish my TBM firnds would clear their heads ans come out of the clouds of the MORG - 01/17/03 - anon

This is the website is obviously inspired. Shame on you! - 12/13/2002 - anon
This site is awesome! After years of speaking and reasoning with Mormons, it is fabulous to finally find a source of both information and comedy. My experience with the LDS church started when I began a relationship with an LDS woman. Not suprisingly, the three year romance eventually fell apart when she she realized that I had absolutely no intention of joining the church. The experiences I had with her and the many LDS people I have met since, have at times, simply worn me out. I have reasoned until I'm blue in the face, and it is great to finally just laugh at the madness of it all. Thank you! Keep up the good work, and don't let the blind LDS zealots keep you down! - 12/13/2002 - email@example.com

love your site but are you every going to update - 11/25/2002 - anon
Yes, we adding a data base starting with the Slamtoon Section for first part of 2003. Also a major facelift to the home page is in the works. Several completely new sections will emerge in 2003 as well. The site is public domain and work of love for exmoism and not capitalism so your patience is appreciated. The disk storage space is close to 300MB which means expansion will cost more for hosting fees.
Those are great, thanks for the laughs. My only regret is that I never joined "the church", just was force to attend it for years as a kid - I probably missed out on some really funny inside jokes. damn.
I really wish Kolob had come up in sunday school, that seems like an entertaining topic! - 11/23/2002 - from john
The funniest part of this site is the "Not So Nice Mail," funny, because I would have written half that stuff 10 years ago. Now I find myself laughing my a** off reading it. That organization would have done me a lot more harm than it did if I couldn't laugh a little about it. - 11/16/2002 - from Mary M.
I have definately laughed my butt off!
Thank you for the great smile you gave me on a day that started so crappy!
Take care. - 11/16/2002 - Margaret Collins
This is my first visit to your site. I love it and anticipate sending all of my friends and family the link.... on joyful email at a time. I was raised Mormon but have been healed... now I just need to help my friends and family see the light... - 11/07/2002 - Mark of SLC
The Slamtoons are a great way to dispel the fear that
we have of disagreeing with mormonism. When we can begin to laugh at what we
once held so sacred, we're really beginning to heal the wounds.
Some of them, (including my own) are offensive. I think that's the point however. Perhaps the Slamtoons should be prefaced with the words, "Enter at your own risk."
What goes around comes around and mormonism is reaping what it's sown. By attacking the sacredness of certain classes of human beings; for example, women, blacks and homosexuals, the mormon church has opened itself up to ridicule.
The first time I visited the Slamtoons I was blown away. It did my heart good to be able to laugh so hard at what had been a source of heartache over the years. I needed to feel some of that released.
I looked at some of the names, Skunk Puppet, Mike Paglia, Stray Mutt and thought that these guys must have cojones the size of basketballs. In a strange kind of way, their contributions were as significant to my recovery as anything else has been.
I bow down before you great gods of the exmo world, and I kiss the ground you stand upon.
No, no, please don't make me kiss your feet. I've been kissing enough body parts over the years - I just wanna feel dirt between my lips for a change.
No, no, please not...
hmmm, oh, well, OK, just this once more.
But this is definitely the last time. - 11/06/2002 - TLC
Just wanna say thanks for the great website. It helped me out a lot when i was leaving the Church and it gave me something to do on those lonely nights when depression and guilt were taking a hold of my life. Thanks again, I have my life back. - 11/05/2002 - from fiskadoro
Just wanna say that this website is great. I'm glad to be a Mormmy contributor as well. I've got many more Mormmy hymns in my dome and I can't wait to get them out in the open for all the ex-Mo's to see and laugh at. Keep up the good work. - 11/04/2002 -Axel Donovan
The Lampoon is just what I needed, a thousand thank yous. I got pretty hurt by the Church, and finally, I can laugh about it. And laugh and laugh and laugh...the healing has begun. Thanks, love you! - 11/02/2002 - from lake_fx

Editor's Note: We are in the process of upgrading the site and will include a section of what's new. This will also be emailed out a the eMagazine for the site.
I can't tell you how much enjoyment I gotten reading through the Slamtoon archives. You have collected some really creative and funny parodies there. - 10/30/2002 - Beag
You know though, there's just nothing funny coming from mormon bosoms. It's all too serious. Try as they might, they just don't know how to laugh. The first time I landed on your site, I almost peed myself laughing.
Exmos rule when it comes to humor. I sometimes look at some of the stuff Mutt comes up with and I think the guy must be some sort of a mad genius who sits in a little room up in the attic and just think, think, thinks all this stuff up all night long while sipping on ancient whiskey, chortling quietly to himself, scratching his dog's head every once in awhile and peeing in a bottle next to his computer because he just can't pull himself away from the next great idea.
You guys who do these Slamtoons are total gods in my universe. And to you Cricket, who gives them all a forum, I bow down at your feet.
Every tear I've ever cried over mormonism is being rewarded with a belly laugh now. I think that's only fair. - 10/27/2002 - TLC
I discovered this site recently and I'm very intrigued and also entertained. I started researching the LDS Church when the St. Louis, MO Temple had open house. I read A LOT of material on the Temples and why they were built the way they were. I went through the Temple three times and have since attended three other Temple Open Houses. I'm not interested in joining the Church. You kidding? A gay white male as myself? Hell, I was probably married to Joseph in another life if I wasn't one of them.
If anyone reading this has been through the Temple I'd love to hear of your experiences. Everything from the Recommend Desk to entering the Celestial Kingdom and hoping not to sit on the plastic covering the white sofas! Please email me! Thank You! - 10/22/2002 - from Jeffrey.Jackson@roche.com
YOUR SITE IS SOOOOOOOOOO FUNNY. DARN NEAR PEE ME BRITCHES EVERY TIME I LOG ON IT'S MUCH MORE ENTERTAINING THAN ANY NEWSPAPER IN THIS GREAT STATE OF UTAHAHAHA!!!! DON'T JOIN EM....LAUGH AT THEM! - 10/10/2002 - anon
Love your site - I sometimes find myself going, "Oh my god, I can't believe they just went there." And then laughing out loud and making a fool of myself at work. I've learned to stop looking at the site unless I'm at home where I can fall on the floor laughing and nobody can see me.
Thanks for the laughs, Tom Clark - - 08/03/2002
you guy are great ..change nothing...nothing at all - 07/20/2002 - :)
Hey! your site is awsome! it inspired me to write a short story on what REALLY goes on in those darn mormon temples! I would really like to send you a copy of my comedy/ceremony to you site and get it posted! if you want a copy then email me. thanx! - 07/04/2002 - your servant touya!
Love the site, my partner is an ex-sufferer currently being emotionally black-mailed to return so we both can relate to the humour. Keep up the good work. - 07/04/2002 - anon
Great stuff, guys! Ah, niche comedy that only takes 13 wasted years of life to understand... ;) - 07/03/2002 - from firstname.lastname@example.org
As an "X" Mo, I found your site, refreshing. It's about time someone came to the forefront with information like this. Keep up the good work. - 06/29/2002 - from email@example.com
Thank YOU for a great web site. I took more than I gave. - 06/22/2002 - Jay
I think your site is funny. I was never a Mormon but I have to admit I love the way the San Diego Temple looks, I wish it was my house. I live in central california and am originally from San Diego, but moved in 1981 and that thing was built in 1993 I think. Anyway, I was raised Catholic and am still a Christian, always will be, but not Catholic. I agree with how you view things for the most part. I would like to write to someone at your site some day soon with a few questions about the LDS church, not to be a pain in the ass but some serious questions, preferably to someone who worked in a temple and could answer some questions. Thanks again for a funny site and please respond to my inquiry. Sincerely, Vince - 06/21/2002
I LOVE YOUR SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I WAS FEELING ALL DOWN UNTIL I FOUND YOU. THANK YOU FOR THE GOOD BELLY LAUGH!!! I GREW UP A SHUNNED LUTHERN IN NORTHERN UTAH. I SURE DON'T MISS IT. - 06/08/2002 - anon
I am so glad I found your site, my Mormon history goes back very very far, my family crossed the plains in covered wagons, I am related to a couple of the early profits (hee hee) of the church, and all of my family are Mormons, my Parents where married in the Salt Lake Temple, and my sister is getting Sealed to her dead husband soon, the thought makes me sick, I think of the Addams Family show when I think of that one, funny thing about that my late brother-in-law could have never gotten a temple recommend when he was alive, he never paid tithing (my sister paid 10% of her earnings, actually she was required to because for worked for the church, I felt sad about that fact because she earned $9.00 an hour and that was the rate she was taxed at and paid 10% of her earnings before taxes, which didn't leave her with much.
Also my brother-law-in drank and smoked, but now that he is dead she can have her temple wedding weird, I guess you only have to be perfect to get married in the temple when you are alive, I have found so many things just like this that make no sense at all, I swear TBM's (True Believing Mormons) must have a part of the brain that is just dead in order to stay Mormon, I have talked to well educated people about other subjects that aren't related to religion, but when it comes to the Church of Joesph Smith of Latter-Day Hypocrites, they are totally brain-washed and stupid, I always felt so cheated and worthless in the church, women are just a vessel to be used by men to bring more tithe payers into the church, when I found out Lucifers connection in the temple ceremony to the church then I knew that the Mo Church was not for me.
I am a happy wiccan now, I am waiting til my Parent die to take my name off the rolls, people who came to the church later in life have no idea how hard it is for people to leave when you are born into the Cult, and your whole family is still in it. I am thankful you made this site - 06/04/2002 - braincellsgrewback
This board is sheer NECTAR to my soul! Funny, plenty sacrilegious (an oxymoron in this case). In fact along with my subscription to Ensign, my Book of mormon with every line underlined in red and my tattered garments from my first Temple vistit 15 years ago, this is my most treasured posession. - 06/04/2002 - anon
You guys are awesome! I am 18 and was born into a mormon house. I was a VERY good mormon boy. I read the BofM 5 times. Last summer I took this knowledge of the book to compare it to real history. I was amazed to find that the BofM was not even close to recorded history. What amazes me even more is that some people refuse to accept the evidence. To my mothers dissapointment I stopped going to church, but she will not let me transfer out of seminary at my high school in Utah. Sucks to be a teenager, but I digress. I think the lies can't go on forever. - 05/26/2002 - anon
I must say, you guys have some real balz. I'm an exmo, who came out kicking & screaming when I learned the truth. I lost all my friends...I mean all...because I only had Mormon friends.
The Relief Society president came over after my excommunication and told my wife, still in the church, that I was now an apostate, a "son of perdition", doomed to "outer darkness", and if she stayed with me, she would share the same fate. Real Christian-like, huh? I seem to recall that Jesus never condemned anyone.
They offered to take her and my children to be with her parents in Utah while I was away on a business trip. What about those good LDS family values?
One of my sons was encouraged by his bishop and left our household to live with a Mormon family. So much for eternal family units.
My wife (and her sisters) were sexually abused by her father's friends most of their teen years. When she tried to report them, her mother told her to keep her mouth shut. It's no wonder that her father was a closet alcoholic and her mother died of a broken heart.
Pay back is a bitch, and I believe that it the LDS church's turn for "Full Disclosure", like the Catholics are going through now. Wait until the victims and witnesses of the real hardcore Satanic stuff come forward to testify of the ritualistic abuse and murder that takes place in the ward houses, stake houses, and yes, even in those magnificent temples!
You are doing a valuable service, bringing light through humor about a very dark religion. I applaud you. - 05/25/2002 - anon
Great website:) keep it up! - 05/24/2002 -from swatosch
I have been living in Utah my whole life! I've delt with Mormons and their idiotic beliefs my whole life! It's good to see some other people backing me up. One of my favorite things to do is invite the elders over and question their faith. I find that most of them don't REALLY care or know what they are talking about. It is usually pretty easy to stump them unless they are really brainwashed. Love the site, keep on ranting and raving!!! - 05/20/2002 - firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the efforts with the website.
Although I would like to see the LDS church go downhill so we can witness a real life "RISE AND FALL OF THE MORMON EMPIRE", what would really be valuable to me would be to see more Mormons have more information about the "controversies" and logical arguments of exmorons.
When I grew up in the church (active from birth to about age 40), I never heard about all the solid evidence of the wackiness of LDS beliefs and history. The internet changed all that.
So rest assured that websites like yours and exmormon.org and many others are having a tremendously beneficial effect on large numbers of people, even though a certain group of core mormons will never ever doubt or question anything (as they are told to do by church leaders and church magazines). - 05/20/2002 - Mr X Colorado Apostate

I love your site. I wanted to voice my frustration about "The Other Side of Heaven" website. They originally had a "Message Board" option on their page. It was a great board with diverse views about the movie. The hottest topics on the board were about how the movie wrongly portrayed the Tongan people. I guess they didn't like the way the people visiting the board were presenting both positive AND negative views of the movie. For days the message boards were down and as of this week, conveniently GONE. The Mormon hand stretcheth far. - 02/10/2002 - kristenbertrand
You guys rule. I finnaly deactivated the brainbomb that was blocking out my
natural sane responses to this racist and facist, and cultist, religion of world
domination, known as Mormonism.
See what happens if you certain nurons (the free nurons), are activated. Pictures of Gordon B Hinkley nudie dancing, pops in to head.
You guys are very very funny. Good job. - 02/06/2002 - HoMo (Holy Mormon)

As a 55 year old exmo for 40 years I howled out loud for hours visiting your lampoon. The young people of today are realy using their critical thinking skills. I love it !!!!! - 01/29/2002 - Craig Hardy from Denver
Cha-CHING!! I was only LDS for a year, but still have family members there (including a current missionary wannabe and a wannabe missionary wannabe), so I get all the snide references. You guys have nailed it, and cracked me up in the process! Thanks for the giggles! - 12/06/2001 - anon
This lampoon brought me great enjoyment, far more than any priestDUD meeting I ever attended, and the author didn't even try to charge me 10% of my gross income. Use a Mor(m)on revelation to guess where you can shove your bogus criticism! - 10/27/2001 - Pat M
Hey, Cricket, I just wanted to let you know I spend alot of time at Latter Day Lampoon. I think the site is hysterically funny. I particularly enjoyed the mp3 clips.
Anyway, keep up the good work! Are you Playelder from Playelder magazine? - 10/21/2001 - Rob H
Editor's Note: No, cricket is not Playelder. Playelder is actually an exmo from Texas who writes the material and another exmo in Utah who does the web page programming. Their website was one of the first exmo parody sites.
I am a young college student and love your outrageous humor. I've been studying mormonism for over 3 years as a former LDS missionary and your site has relieved a lot of my stress. Truly mormonism was never meant to be taken seriously. If you would like to post my web page go ahead, www.geocities.com/exmormon2000 - 10/17/2001 - Bill
Having been at hard war with the Morg for 4 months, and getting uglier with each letter, I must add, over them wiping out my name from their roles, I laughed my ass off. I mean, it is sitting there on the floor, right next to me. I got to crazy glue the damned thing back on now. At least I didn't piss my pants. Keep up the good work. Let Morg have it. - 09/23/2001 - email@example.com

Hi, 32 year old ex-mormon, LOVE THIS SITE!!!! I was so freaked out in temple marriage experience to my ex-husband.It's nice to be freaking alive. Think my own thoughts.

Dudes! Marion Romney here. I'm visiting Kolob, and having a grand old time. I gathered up a dozen or so new mounts [wives] and taught them the secret handgrips. They looked better without the Godly weave, but there is a price for Godhood, or Goddiddity, or whatever. Pay lay ale. - 10/08/2000 - Marion
As a former "temple Mormon" and CTR 8 teacher (read: MINDF***ED, TOTALLY), I have been enjoying this site!!! To laugh at the proud- there's nothin they fear more!!!!!!!! And nothing that's come closer to helping me heal. I particularly enjoyed printing out the "Slamtoons" and mailing them to the daughter of a "faithful" Mormon family from my old ward (she's currently in corrective custody for drugs and running away, which actually makes alot of sense). - 10/05/2000 - anon
Thanks for the work that you have done on your website. I was fascinated and have spent about 10 hours following leads there. I have not been around Mormons since I quit working at a major university in the 1970's. I left there because of the heavy Mormon influence in the College of Agriculture. Bishops were in every major position from dean of the college to most of the department heads. I saw many things that truly hurt people because Mormons were taking care of Mormons at the exclusion and detriment of others even when the Mormons were under qualified or unqualified for the positions that they were being given. In a rather heated conversation on Mormonism one day our department chairman's son (a relatively new bishop himself) and a new employee of the department blurted out, "We're going to make this university the Brigham Young University of this region of the country and there's nothing you can do about it!"
At the time, I thought, "Yeah, right, that's so much BS." I've now come to believe that it truly is the intention whether spoken or not. I've recently married a Mormon and I'm beginning to feel the undercurrents from her daughters where I am not being supported because I am not Mormon. I thank you for your site and the resources there. It will give me access to a better understanding of what is around me and a source of material to read to find out more. - 10/01/2000 - anon
As a recovering Catholic, I found this site a real rip. It sounds like exMormons are even more tormented than any of my exCatholic friends. At least we could tip a beer and laugh on our side of town. I am married to an inactive Mormon with two grown daughters that are devout. I sometimes wish that there could be an open, thoughtful conversation about the religion. There are many good things about families that the Mormons support, but as a father of two grown children, I know that you don't have to be Mormon to love your kids and raise them to be thoughtful, loving, inquisitve (oops, that doesn't seem to be a desireable Mormon trait) adcults. Your site is great and I will invite my step daughters to check it out. I would probably be in deep stuff if I gave their kids the website address! Keep up the good work! I've never been interested enough to find out if there is an equivalent site for Catholics? Well, I've got to run out for a good Merlot before I take that one on!! - 09/30/2000 - anon
Keep up the great work on the web site. - 09/28/2000 - Beli
I find nothing wrong with your site. I come from a Mormon family. My Mormon ancestors joined the church, in Denmark, in 1874 and made the pilgrimage to Utah in 1876. My other Mormon ancestors joined the church, in Switzerland, in 1891 and came to America that same year. And yes, my ancestors were polygamists. My great-grandfather abandoned my great-grandmother and their nine children after he spent time, for polygamy, in an Idaho prison. He chose to live with another one of his wives, so the children of his first marriage lived in poverty while the children of his other wife lived well, because of his support.
My extended Mormon family is huge and most of them are active and faithful Mormons. I'm one of the exceptions.
I took a giant step and did enough research to know that I don't believe any of the Joseph Smith/Golden Plates story. I think Mr. Smith was a troubled young man who wanted to "be somebody". And his deplorable, deceitful method of acquiring wives was shameful. And then he lied and denied his polygamy on numerous occasions.
The Lamanite concept will soon be proven to be a sham, (with the help of DNA science) and that will be a low-blow to the Book of Mormon.
My problem has always been that I don't believe in the conception of the Church and I don't believe in the doctrine of the Church, but I dearly love most of the Mormon people that I know. They are such good people. So I don't voice my opinion when they come to visit. I guess I figure, "Live and let live". I just wish that they wouldn't follow so blindly. It amazes me how little they really know about documented facts and history. (This includes the writings of Joseph Smith and Brigham Young and all those faithful young women they bedded.)
The Mormon people in our community lead good, healthy lives and they raise nice children, so what's the harm? All I ask is that they respect my views. - 09/29/2000 - anon
I can't believe I ever thought I was alone!!!! This sight rules!!!! I would have liked this sight even before I left the fold. It's that damn funny!
Guess what?! My father-in-law told me that if I didn't repent and go back to the temple, my new born daughter would run off and get married at age 17 and probably live in sin. Funny thing, though... That hypocrite married his wife when when she was 17... Maybe he doesn't think he lives in sin but he sure as hell is as asshole!
And maybe I'm bitter. Well, when I left the church I found happiness that I never thought possible. But the freakin' members won't let it go. It always "tell me why you left," and "did some one hurt your feelings?"
Less than six months later I have an ax to grind. Maybe if they'd let me be I wouldn't have to bash the fucking morons... I mean mormons.
But now that I found this sight I am working through my bitterness. This place is cathartic!
Oh that feels good. I'm not quite so bitter any more. I'm going to end this so I can go skipping joyously down the street. - 09/29/2000 - anon
Dammit Cricket , the Prophet made you a pretty good offer and you havent gotten back to us yet.

We'll also up the salary from $200,000.00 to $250,000.00 .

Dear Elder Cricket:
It has been revealed to me by Heavenly Father Himself that your keen abilities and forthright candor have been sorely missed here in the Kingdom of Zion. By yhe power of God Himself , I now bestow upon you the Melchizedek Priesthood and also a nice cushy job in the church main office running our website ($200,000.00 yr.). Of course , this means you will have to shut down this wonderful example of your creativity , but , I'm sure you will not miss it. Have a nice day . - 09/23/2000 - Gordon B Hinckley
I am very glad that here in America we have freedom of religion and , if we choose , freedom from religion. We also have freedom of speech. If we are victimized by a nut-case religion we are free to leave whenever we want. We are also free to express our indignation when we have been conned out of our 10% tithes , ect. ect. ect. . This site is a magnificent work of art. I wonder how long our basic freedoms of speech and expression will last when or if a mormon is ever elected president. God help us. - 09/20/2000 - Thomas Joyner, Mesa, AZ

I love It... frankly the fact that The Mormon church has so many problems (and we have a place to make fun of it)is great. I mean heck I am Christian and I don't hate Mormons, I have four friends and a two very close families that are Mormons (even though every time we religon comes up in conversation I get accused of Mormon bashing...)I like having fun and this site is fun (that being an understatement... it's great because you don't see Presbytrians (that has to be a typo..) changing their beliefs just because it's politicaly correct... So for those Mormons out there who would accuse me of Mormon bashing, my suggestion is take to chill pills and call me in the morning...

I love the lord, the lord loves you, you love the lord, therefore you love me. The lord is dissappointed that you would make a mockery of the notion of paying money so that a man in bizarre underwear grants you the right to go in the temple and learn the secret handgrips and gang signs that allow you to receive a planet and a whole truckload of wives in the afterlife. That is not funny, at all. - your friend, God - 08/07/2000
This is really great satire (or IS it satire?) I'm really sorry that other people get upset about you and your contributors trashing the holier-than-thou Utah "Synod" church (WAAA!)

I'm LDS, but I have to say your site is rather good. I'm the organist and have been for the last 9 years, and over 10 years before this last go-round. God, what a rut. Anyway, I find it interesting and very annoying that during all prayers, it's the same old Rote crap.
I think if I hear the phrase "We thank Thee for this beautiful building we have to meet in" one more time, I'm gonna puke! Why thank God for the building. Shit, did he plant a magic seed one night, then the next day this fucking miracle building was just there? No! If anything, thank the tithe payers. God had nothing to do with it. Same goes for the little kids who get up during testimony. You know, the small ones that have to stand on the little children's platform to reach the mike. Same old Rote crap. "I'd like to bear my testimony and I know the church is true...I know President Hinckley is a "pwofet"....blah blah blah. This should be outlawed for hell sake. How can these kids know Hinckley is a prophet? They don't even know what that means. Just time wasted.

This is a great site. I am real glad there are other souls out there that have been liberated. I am real stifled here in Idaho. I believe I am the only non moron for miles. I don't dislike all mormons, just the ones who look down their noses at other religions and judge people by what religion they are and not how good they are. There is a group of them in this little town that won't even speek to you at all, because you are non-mormon. It used to bother me, but now I am so happy I am not one of thoise TYPE of lost souls. Mormons suck!! - 07/30/2000 - anon
Hey, if I haven't ever thanked you for your site, let me do so now. Just so you know, I think the reason my posts on the exmo BBS have sometimes been mocking or sarcastic is because laughter frees us from fear and guilt. When we are free from fear and guilt, we are free from the greatest tools of the Mormon church. We are free to look at the whole picture, see the church for what it is, and make our own, more objective choices. Thank you for the laughter and freedom you bring through Latter-day Lampoon! - 07/25/2000 - DataHavok

Awesome sight man! I think mormons all need to get a life, and i'm constantly being bothered by the stupid punks telling me to go to church with them and stuff. They think that they are right and everyone else is wrong. But if you look at all the facts, reading that book and getting that good feeling is just brainwashing. (that last message wasn't hate mail, but a joke, plus my family is mormon and came in so my sisters made me put that stuff too)
And then praying makes the brainwashing increase, because your talking YOURSELF into stuff. i tried reading the BOM, but all the authors sound the same, and its funny how they talk about Jews in South America, and not Asians like the DNA proves. What, the asians came over and killed em' all off? Get real.
And as for that spirit shit, it is just a psychological feeling when you feel you are talking to a divine maker. If I talked to a biological mother that I had never known, i would feel the same feeling as that "spirit". And then Kolob is the biggest joke of all, because God supposedly showed Abraham that star, but our telescopes have seen all that stuff and there is no planet like that. - 06/20/2000 - cleansk8r

I just asked to have my name removed from the LDS Church today. The (Bishop and his so called council) in this smallIdaho town are the closest things to Satin I have ever seen. It mad me realize that if the LDS Church were true and these men were picked by the Lord for their jobs that their Lord must be Satan. No one would believe how corrupt and such Liars these men are. I want nothing more to do with that type of people. They would actually stone a non Mormon down hear in Southern Idaho. Thank God I am not alone in my beliefs. - 05/20/2000 - Crystal

Good job on your site. One ex-mormon now means 20 less mormons running around when he becomes sexually active. - 04/27/2000 - Daniel
I think your site is great! Keep up the good work! - 04/24/2000 - anon

Great site!! Here in the Magrath/Raymond/Cardston area of south Alberta, Canada, (SLC North) we are plagued with people whose entire opinion of you is determined in the context of words and acronyms like BYU, SLC, ward, primary, mission, seminary etc. You have to know what this stuff means here. On the other hand, the knowledge of Charles Darwin is banned, and an offer of a coffee or beer sends 'em running. Keep up the good work of mixing the truth with humour, and if you're ever up here look for my old buick with the letters LDS on the side...it stands for liquor delivery service. - 04/19/2000 - anon
It is nice to see others feel as I do about Mormons. I am surrounded by them in this small town in Idaho. They all think they are better then others and are always putting other people down. They do nothing but gossip and look down their noses at other religions. I was baptized a Mormon, but thank God I had a brain and could see that they are not the only true religion. I never felt God in a Mormon Church, all I feel is a bunch of Holier than thou Arts. I am glad to see others in this world feel as I do. They are the pursecutors of others. A real cult. By the way I am married to a Mormon. My Mormon Mother in law always treated me bad because I didn't attend Church on Sunday. The daugher in Law who attended Church every Sunday was always talking behind her back. I hope now that she has crossed over she got a big SURPRISE. She found out the truth!!! - 04/08/2000 - Jack Mormon
Thanks for adding us to your web page. It is great to be free from the bondage of Mormonism. I would have laughed three years ago if someone suggested that I would no longer be a Mormon. Thanks for your great site. It has brought lots of smiles to my life. - 04/06/2000 - Max
Your site rocks! I need to spend some serious time to absorb all the cool stuff you have. - 03/31/2000 - Dagney
I have visited your latterdaylampoon site and loved it. I have passed the link on to a few people I thought would enjoy it as well. I know any endeavor like your creative web site takes a lot of time, I hope you get the thanks you deserve for it. I am sure you have helped many people keep out of the clutches of the Morg. - 03/20/2000 - Tonya
Thanks you and your co-lampooners very much. If I had had this site available 10-15 years ago it would have greatly taken the serious and sober edge off of what I was feeling. As it was, my favorite parts of Sunstone and Dialogue were the humor. It took years for me to realize that in taking the LDS dogma seriously I was also taking myself and my role as a Patriarchal Mormon way to seriously. - 03/25/2000 - Arthur
We have enjoyed your website immensely! - 03/23/2000 - J and C

Biting-edge satire of a church that, REALLY BITES! - 03/23/2000 - anon
Hi, I love reading latterday lampoon. Wonderful, Wonderful. - 03/23/2000 - Cheryl
Utah people are so secretive and there seems to be an air of paranoia. I am just trying to make since of my world. Your website has made a huge difference. I wish I had found it three years ago. I would not have had my feelings hurt so often. Now that I too, am enlightened I feel like I am leaving the "church".
Every day I am amazed at the rules and regulations and that owners of multi-million dollar corporations would believe this, not to mention the open heart surgeons,etc. Thank you. - 03/23/2000 - anon
I left the church about six or seven years ago after discovering it to be one of the biggest deceptions in this century. This website is quite possibly the funniest I have seen. Keep up the good work. - 03/05/2000 - anon
Hell yes! Finally someone who sees mormon for what they are..... Full of it. I live in Idaho Falls, ID there are more mormons here per capita than there are in SLC You want to see a town that rolls up their sidewalks on sundays it is here. This place is the capitol of the closeminded religious fanatics. Your site is a refreshing escape from this hell hole. - 02/28/2000 - a fellow exmo
I LOVE YOUR SITE. I LOVE YOU. I WOULD LOVE YOU MORE IF YOU WERE CLAD IN THE PRIESTHOOD AUTHORIZED HOLY UNDERGARMENT OF THE LORD [$3.95 TOPS, $3.45 BOTTOMS, VENTS INCLUDED]. JESUS LOVES YOU, TOO, BUT PROBABLY ISN'T TOO FOND OF THE HOLY UNDERGARMENT OF THE LORD, AT ANY PRICE. THE LORD'S PEOPLE ARE THE ONLY FOLKS WHO ARE DEEPLY, PASSIONATELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE UNDERWEAR WORN BY EACH OTHER. GROUP UNDERWEAR FASHION IS THE SIGN OF THE TRUE CHURCH. A MAN WITHOUT THE MAGIC SKINS IS...WELL...A NORMAL MAN. - 02/27/2000 - anon
This is a mega-cool site!! I had no idea that someone else so earnest and apostate as I am ALSO had a great a sense of humour about it! God continue blessing all of us who believed what we were taught in Primary, "The glory of God is intelligence!" Not only did we then learn to read and write, we DID SO and left the "only true church! - 02/26/2000 - anon
I don't know what those True Believing Mormons are talking about in the Hate Mail. This is one of the most succinctly humorous sites in existence. It is definitely a damn "site" (ha ha) better than lds.com. Anyway, thanks. I love what you've done with the place. - 02/20/2000 - anon
As Sri A.C. Weisbecker said in "Cosmic Banditos," This is Just Another Example of Something. Keep up the good work. - 02/19/2000 - anon
(A young child slowly makes his way to the podium to bear his testimony. His proud father is standing behind him whispering into his ear exactally what he should say. The father beams with pride as the young child resites the lines..)
I would like to bear my testimony that I know this site its true.. I know its creator is a prophet who restored the fullness of the apostate Gospel to the earth at this time. I know the many things which are written within it are true and the words of god. I love my family and my multiple wives, plus the people I am having affairs with. I say these things in the name of the Lampoon.. Amen!! - 02/18/2000 - A True Non-Believing Apostate
It's no fun when Ex-Mo's pose as True Believing Mormons's when sending hate letters. I just love it when a real live TBM discovers this website and gets the shock of his life and sends a nasty hate letter. Then when an Ex-Mo tries to get cute and pose as a TBM like in the last few hate letters , its just not as fun anymore. I wont try to tell you how to run this excellent website, You are doing a fantastic job. I just thought I would put my two cents in. Keep up the good work. - 02/17/2000 - John D. Lee
Last night I was in a store and happened to browse through a copy of "Mormons on the Internet, 2000-2001 edition." Latter-day Lampoon was mentioned not once, not twice, but THREE TIMES! One of the descriptions said things like "Ouch! Biting humor" and "Not for the faint of heart." - 02/08/2000 - Dr Shades
There is some really good stuff on your site. I like the idea of a humorous LDS site. It helps us ex-mormons come to terms with our having been duped all these years. - 02/05/2000 - Light
(sung to the tune of "Sanctus Sanctus Sanctus") Thank you, thank you, thank you, for your hilarity! Your site thrills me to the ends of the Earth! It's the best...the best thing on the web! <~~so I'm not exactly Bob Dylan...sue me :)~ - 02/06/2000 - From your Budd-y, R. Budd Nixon
Dear Crickett; I have not had this much fun in a long time. I now ordain You as the Ex-Mo Prophet and Latter Day Lampoon is our Cyber Scripture. - 02/05/2000 - John D Lee
I have figured you out. Yep, this sight is actually opperated by the Strengthening the Members committee. It's a secret device to smoke out all us foyer rabble-rousters and send our home-teachers over to kick our asses! Don't kid yourself. - 02/03/2000 - anon
I like your website. I can't believe how many post-mormon skeptics there are out there. What othere sites to you recommend? - 01/19/2000 - Mao
Great work! Better than the Work and the Gory any day! - 01/18/2000 - Gail
After leaving the Church after thirty some years, I find it interesting that the Church tells it's members not to read literature that is not "uplifting." Yet, On Aug.13th of 1871, the Prophet, George A.Smith said "If a faith will not bear to be investigated; of it preachers and professors and afraid to have it examined, their foundation must be very weak." - 01/18/2000 - anon
I haven't had this much fun on a Sunday morning in years. Thanks! - 01/15/2000 - anon
If there is an Exmo Heaven, I am sure you will have a very special place in it. Although I personally never fell for this Mormon lie, I have been punished for not being Mormon by my bosses, and peers at work. When they tried to convert me and I began to look into it by reading and circulating "Anti" stuff at work, they got me demoted and finally terminated. I was living in Mesa Arizona at the time. (SLC South) Ever since I have had nothing but the highest praise for the people who are able to see this nonsense for what it really is. Keep it up! - 01/02/2000 - John D. Lee
Awesome site! I'm always appalled by the lack of critical thought displayed by true-blue mormons. They are truly "sheep". This site is a healthy slap in the face! Maybe it will get a few to wake up and at least try to make some positive changes in the organization. - 12/29/1999 - Dave
If the Mormons truly had a Prophet leading them, then why in the hell did they stop their stupid wagon train at the Salt Lake. They could have gone all the way to Sacramento and cashed in on the Great Gold Rush in 1849. Sounds to me like Morons really is the best name for them. - 01/01/2000 - a 49'er fan
"Cricket"- What's up? I'm just curious where you got your "Recommended By Bob Hope" graphic on the "Mormon Museum" page. It's pretty funny. Thanks. - 12/29/1999 - Glyolis
Actually Bob and I go way back. He is the first mormon I know that left the church decades ago after realizing it was a big hoax. He started laughing then and has not stopped. His name back then was Bob Grope, because he was grasping for anything close to the truth. When he realized that the truth lies within each soul and not in organized religion he changed his name to Bob Hope and his career was born. He has given more hope to millions through humor than the LDS Church will ever give through their guilt tactics and coercion.
Bob sent me the graphic as personal gesture of good will. He thinks the Lampoon is pretty funny. His wife Dorothy is still pretty catholic so he has to lay off the religion humor a bit. Bob offered to entertain the troops of the Lord at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah last year but Boyd K Packer was afraid that the missionaries might actually have a good time so they nixed it.
Terrific site, helps change the hate to laughter, which is probably a healthy thing. It's a rich ore you are so skillfully mining. You must be a professional writer. Keep it up! It's wonderful and so damn funny. - 12/23/1999 - lurker from exmormon.org
My name is Holly, and I had to drop you a line and let you know how cool I think your site is. There isn't enough really good stuff out there about the Church and it's minions. Your site has the perfect mixture of humor and facts that I wish I could see more of. I don't think I have ever laughed so hard at anything Mormon as I have at the stuff on your site. I was born and raised in the Church, left at age 19, and to this day I am struggling with the damage it left on my psyche...I relaize now from an outside perspective how brainwashed I was. My entire family, on both sides, were Mormons, going several generations back, all the way to the early days of the Church's history. It is good to see humor from an ex-mormon's perspective, because leaving the Church is no easy thing and can actually be traumatic if it's all you have ever known. More of us just need to laugh as we set ourselves free of this horrible institution. Thanks for the entertaining and honest view of the Church. I will be a regular visitor to your site, and look forward to more fun in the future. - 12/19/1999 - Holy Gonzales
What a wonderful site! Your exposing of false doctrine through ingenious use of satire and irony is reminiscent of Swift and Rabelais. I wish you much success in puncturing the the inflated egos of the smug, self satisfied, and sadly misled Saints. Pax Vobiscum. - 12/17/1999 - Juan Pablo
Congratulations on a job well done.Its nice that someone can see this LDS lunacy for what it really is.Too bad the rest of these gullible sap LDS morons dont have the courage to use thier God given brains to check the church out for themselves. - 12/16/1999 - John L

The Mormon Church is the biggest fraud of the century, Joseph Smith was a lying , cheating felon, and the Book of Mormon is a collection of fairy tales for grown ups. I encourage everyone who hates the Mormon Church and has dirt on it to speak out, and crush this pathetic religion. Bravo on your site! - 12/10/1999 - The Atheist
ten point spread mate! Finnally a site that tells the truth about Morons....Mormons ... well what's the difference. As a whole I find that as a generalization the mormons are close minded - 11/17/1999 - anon
Your stuff is great. I think it is all true. - 11/09/1999 - anon
I love your site!!! Good job!!! All of those self-righteous mormons who have written you hate mail are inadvertantly acting as tools of the devil!!! - 11/07/1999 - anon
