I have a question for the Mormons reading this. Where do you think the material for this site came from? It came from people who have been hurt by Mormons. Most of us do not judge a group by a single member, but the members as a whole. Most likely it was more than one Mormon that caused the bitterness you read in some of these comments, it was the church as a whole.
I live in a city that is predominantly LDS. I've seen the church as a whole cause pain for not only those who are not part of their church, but also those within the church.
Some of the comments from those who are LDS call those who are insulting Mormons ignorant. You want to talk about ignorant, really research your church. Compare the Doctrine and Covenants to your Book of Mormon. They contradict each other as well as the bible. Are you really okay with this? This doesn't bother you?
I know that for some of you being a part of this church makes you feel good, but feeling good and being a good person does not get you to heaven. If you believe the bible then you know their is only one way to get to heaven. If you're not sure what it is, read John 3:16 in the bible.
The bible says nothing about levels of heaven. Good works doesn't gain your salvation. I encourage you to do your research. Compare your Doctrine and Covenants to your Book of Mormon and to your bible. If you are completely set in your beliefs then why do you care what these other people say? Just pray for them, as I pray for you.

Wow- Some of this was true, some of it wasn't... Just calm down commenters. :) If you yell and scream it'll only make others believe it's true.
Yes, LDS have practiced polygamy, but we outlawed it. C'mon, Solomon had 700 wives! Some Muslims still practice it today, and in Morrocco it isn't outlawed. Look up your facts people before saying anything.
But if someone is really has an open mind, then they'll take everything with a grain of salt and keep an open view to the fact that everyone has different opinions. You can't let haters get you down, or even keep them in mind. No matter what your religion, there will always be someone against it. True of any religion. - 09/08/2009 - Salt
I think all of you mormons should just calm down, I live in southern utah, and All this stuff is pretty true! And I say god A LOT and when ever i do i get dirty looks, It is bull shit! So I loved this website, I thought it was hillarious! and extremely true! - 07/08/2009 - RANDOM!!!
Mormonism is not true, NO living Prophets, No gold Plates might as well read Harry Potter. Good people just misguided. - 06/30/2009 - Gus
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 tried to describe two members of a Mormon Church whom reside in an apartment house nearby. There is no way to describe them, you would never believe me. I will however, comment: they are dirty, dirty, dirty in body and dress. They take all they can get and think the world should hand over money to them. Their actions are just as bad. If you are thinking, "I don't believe this". Well I am not a Mormon, but I am a Christian, in fact, so much so, that I handed out money for gas and/or food. Now, I stand back and ask "The Lord" to help "Me" to remember "That for the sake of GOD, there lay I" - 03/22/2009 - anon

you read 11/09/07 anon below and aren't disgusted by 1) the phrase "who is slandering our church - the phrase "who is" as used here demonstrates the need for more education as does the use of the word "slander." Verbal is slander, when written it's lible. 2)Compassion is spelled with two s's not one - refer to point 1 and the need for more education, or should I say edumackasion; and 3)the use of the phrase "the church" in all of it's condescending and arrogant glory doesn't drive you insane. - 07/28/2008 - proudapostate
Some of this was pretty funny. Most of it was mildly amusing. A small portion actually crossed the line... I do find it interesting that certain groups are OK to pigeonhole into a collection of stereotypes and some aren't. I'm sure there are plenty of small-minded Mormons out there (just like there are plenty of small-minded folks of any group). But it's troubling when people think it's OK to say things like, "This is exactly how Mormons are...100% right on." Then it crosses the line from being parody into something else. It really wouldn't be much different from publishing a collection of jokes/musings on African-Americans and then saying, "Yep. This is exactly how all African-Americans are. If you don't believe me, come to Atlanta and see for yourself!" You get the idea. - 04/30/2008 - Wow
Right on, this is the truth the whole truth and nothingbut the truth. I can add one.
You might be a mormon if the truth about your church pisses you off! Keep the jokes coming love it. - 04/12/2008 - danna
This list was funny! There were some sacred things mocked, which any sincere believer wouldn't enjoy, but the Mormon tendencies were accurate. I've been a member my whole life and have seen it! Notwithstanding some weird stuff we do, the doctrines "the Church" teaches are true. I know it "without a shadow of a doubt". - 04/08/2008 - Michael
Mormons really are exactly like this... this is SO true, in ways that people who were never LDS cannot completely understand. I am a former "member" ... believe me, I know. - 03/03/2008 - freethinker
SR, and all the others - I have been to Utah, lots of times actually, and whilst of course there are some bad Mormons, some who are hypocritical, some who can appear over zealous, and every single one with some fault of one sort or another, most are trying to be good people, to care for their neighbor, to be honest and sincere etc. etc. Of course every religion requires faith, believing in something you can't see, that does not make you naïve or foolish. There are some things that cannot be read, or learned, they can only be experienced - and that is why I am an active member of the church. Yes, there are unanswered questions about church history but I know what I have experienced and that cannot be denied, nor 'explained away'. So in spite of my imperfections, the inevitable imperfections even of Jospeh Smith (in a developing church in a developing nation), the imperfections of the leaders today, the church is still true. - 03/03/2008 - Mart
Seems pretty much right on to me, if a bit tongue in cheek at times. I've been around, married to, divorced from and related to TBM's all my long life. My great-grandfather was a polygamist and influential in the church after arriving in the Salt Lake valley in 1853. Anyone who can't see the truth and humor in this list is kidding themselves or has never lived or visited more than a couple of days in Utah where Mormonism still exists in it's most pure, silly and scary - 02/16/2008 - NoMo
Yea, actually as a former member of "the church"... this is exactly the crap they beleive (misspelling intentoinal) - 01/27/2008 - ex-mo
if people like this take pot-shots at you based on their absolute ignorance of your most precious and sacred held beliefs.

Utterly disgusting, rude, untrue, completely false and biased. You really don't know members of the Church and you have not read the Book of Mormon. Keep in mind, Joseph had a third grade education and translated the gold plates in 60 days. If you really read the book with an open mind and a desire to know if it is true, you would look at it differently, but I can see that would be impossible as you would be unwilling. - 10/16/2007 - LDS Member

I guess the irony is that "really offended" just sent a comment that illustrated about ten of the above "mormon if's". Being a non-mormon in Zion is a real eye opener, it is scary how many times I have been told to just sit down for an hour with so and so and I will learn the right. Oh my god, give me a break, we are all entitled to believe whatever we choose (or in the case of the LDS faith, what we are told to choose), don't preach to me and tell me that my beliefs are not as worthy as yours. I don't lecture to you, don't lecture to me. Of course, since all of our neighbors are so much more worthy than we, that is why their kids can't play with ours and why they can steal rose bushes right out of our yards, but can't acknowledge us when we are all in our front yards or teach their children that we are all created equal and should be treated as such. Such a sad way to go through life and to think that the LDS faith believe that they are christian. 08/03/2007 - Not mormon in Zion
Wow, I followed this link from Mormon No-More out of curiosity and discovered a wellspring of Mormonisms.

okay i am 14 years old and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that this is not true so please don't believe it if you want to know more about the church then ask someone you know that is mormon someone that has gone to seminary at 6 in the morning before school through all of highschool, someone who has been baptized and knows how amazing it is to feel the holy ghost, and someone who knows what they are talking about or go to lds.org or mormon.org. Don't believe any of this, please!! i know its not true because i am a mormon everyday and it is the thing i am most grateful for. - 06/15/2007 - anon

In regards to your "highly offended" comment email@example.com,I am married to a former mormon,whose family is all still TBM's,& this is EXACTLY how they behave.They treat me like the anti-Christ,ignore my children,and harp at me and my husband about having our daughters blessed and/or baptised.I have 13 nieces and nephews,most have which have been at LEAST blessed at birth,and have made comments such as that my daughter has made Jesus mad at her for wearing a tank top in 100 degree heat,and recently have had a TBM sister-in-law start a HUGE family fight over the documented FACT that Joseph Smith practiced polygamy,but that it's not true(according to her) and that that particular info is not pertinent to the salvation of your soul,so it can be discredited.There is your truth. - 04/10/2007 - marriedtoaformermo
