Req - Mormonism by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me Req - Mormonism by Haters-Gonna-Hate-Me
Requested stamp.
Every religion, especially the members of it, can be extremely bigoted, but I find Mormonism to be the most extreme in my eyes, mostly because I grew up with it surrounding me and I've lived with it every day.
  1. Weddings. If you're a Mormon getting married to a Mormon, you're most likely going to have a wedding in one of the temples so that you and your loved one can spend eternity together. But, if you're not a Mormon or don't get permission to set foot in the temple, then you can just give up on watching their ceremony. I've known people who have had to wait outside the temple while their sons or daughters get married inside and that's just wrong.

  2. Missions. They are practically pressured since birth to go on a mission for their church during the time they could be going to college. They're sent all over the world and try to persuade people to join their religion. I don't really think I need to go on much longer about this. I'm pretty sure all of can know just how annoying missionaries can be. I've also had bad experience with those going on missions. My brother's friend tried to convert him several times through letters while he was on his mission, no matter how many times my brother said no and finally stopped replying to his friend's letters for a while.

  3. Swearing. You can't say shit around these people without feeling as though they're damning you through just their stare alone. You can't even say "god" around them without them throwing a bitchfit.

  4. Other Religions/No Religion. They're all below them. Not part of their religion? You're instantly shunned from their group and most likely they're going to stop talking to you/act as though you don't exist. It's like if you don't believe the exact same things they do, don't practice the same religion, etc. then you are not worthy to walk the same school hallways that they do. More personal stories here about their bullshit, but I think you guys get the image.


There are probably so many things I could put here, but I'm done for now.

Out of all my years here, I have only met a few Mormons that are nice and accept me for who I am, but even then I still can't tell if they're just trying to be nice or if they genuinely are.

P.S. Utah sucks.

I have to ask why you are so biased. This stamp doesn't make any sense at all whatsoever, as far as I know.

I have yet to find a description of the LDS church that is written by a nonmember and UNbiased. Just saying. You may be a hater, or even just have a less-than-good opinion about us, but you don't have to go complaining about it. There have probably been plenty of better worded responses to this by other Latter Day Saints, so I will refrain from going on a rant or trying to persuade you to change your views. You have your own (if biased) opinions and I respect that, but please don't flame the entire religion if you've only met the ones from Utah.

I'm a mormon and I didn't support Mitt Romney. I think he was a bit off kilter. Any religion is weird until you understand it. I am an open-minded individual. Not all mormons are the same. I have gay friends, I have atheist friends, I have friends that don't even believe in God. But that's not my business... Nor is it my business to judge them or try to convert them to my religion. I just try to be the best that I can be. And not all mormons are bigots either. You have bigots in every religion and not even in religion. You have every right to your opinion. I'm not here to judge. I think your stamp is funny. :)

What? I'm a Morman and I certainly don't get angry at people who swear (that doesn't mean I like it though 8( ) And I DEFINITELY don't shun people who aren't Mormans. Who told you that? The Morman name is so tainted these days, and I can see why. People use it so very much in the wrong way.
Missionaries are supposed to be encouraged to go, but that again is taken the wrong way. Parents and other people pressure them so much and they are definitely not supposed to do that. We've always been told that it has to be the person's OWN choice, otherwise heck, they aren't going for themselves, they're going for someone else, and that's wrong. But I gotta say though, some people I know who come back from missions come back transformed into some of the most wonderful people I know.
And people are SEALED in the temple, which also works as marriage. You can still get married in a normal ceremony for your family if you want, that's what my brother's doing. But, yes, you need to have certain things in order to go inside the temple, I mean, it's not just a normal building.

I am a proud member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons) and I found this offensive. I accept people for who they are, regardless of their beliefs or opinions. I find it deeply offensive if someone thinks that I am stuck up just because of what religion I belong to. I can accept different ideals, why can't anybody else? I don't think I'm better than anybody just because I am of the LDS faith. And I love living in Utah. It's a beautiful state with plenty of recreational activities to do year-round.

And no, I don't know anybody with horns if anyone was wondering.

There are things I dont agree with



but i dont hate on them.


especially if i dont understand them completely.


im sorry if you had bad experiences, but the truth is, there's mormons who are jerks, and there's mormons who are nice. just like how black people are different, and gay people and every other person on the planet.

it does seem like a harsh life to live from the outside, but the main motivation of mormons is true christian love, even if the people themselves dont exemplify it at all.



im a mormon living in utah


and im not a bigot


and i dont hate you but this did offend me.
