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.

Really? Think about how many people you're offending before you post something like this. I know it was a request, but you don't have to do it. You can have your own opinion but please don't purposely offend people with it.

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.

I'm a mormon and I've lived in Utah several times in my life and I have to say I agree with you. The Mormons who live in Utah have a tendency to be close minded and judgmental of people who are not of their faith. This really annoys me because just because you are a "mormon" doesn't mean you're a good person. At all. But it's what they think. They really need to get out and see the real world. A world full of good people. It's hard to live in Utah, even for me, because I'm not so embedded in the "mormon culture". I'm sorry this is your impression of Mormons. I wish I could say that none of us are like that, but it's sadly untrue. Mormons are just as human as every one else in the world. Sometimes they just don't like to think it. I have to stand up for my church though and say that though the members are not perfect, I believe that the church is. There is no system, religion, or government on this earth that is perfectly run or represented because they are run and represented by imperfect people.

By the way I love your Avatar. :D

Okay, I am Tyler, and I have been a Mormon since I was 6 when I asked my grandparents to take me to church. I am currently a deacon and I proudly serve the Lord both in and outside of church. I will attempt to correct the statements :iconhaters-gonna-hate-me: in his/her description to the best a 13 year old Mormon can.
(This will correspond with the numbers in his/her discription. ie: Statement 1 he/she said will be 1 on my rebuttle, and so forth.)

1. We believe that the temple is a sacred place and can be like "a house of God." If people could just wander off the street and into the temple,  then people who dislike the mormon religion could trash it and disrespect it. The temple is reserved for sacred duties such as baptisims for the dead, temple marriage and sealings. It is not like an open house to the Mormon religon. That would be the churches.
2. Missions are optional for women, and you have the option to go not only at 18, but with your spouse when you get a temple marriage. If you are an older couple, you can even request to not go out of state. Missionaries help people both spiritually and physically. They can provide guidance towards the right path of God, and help you overcome difficult times in your life such as a divorce or death.
3. It is not just the Mormons that are not fond of swearing, but pretty much all the Christian religions dislike it. There are better and more appropriate words that can be used in the place of swear words.
4. I have many non-Mormon friends, and we get along swimmingly. We also believe that if a relative of yours who wasn't of the mormon religion can be baptized and taught the religion even after death. (See baptisims for the dead in rebuttle #1). Whether they except it is not up to us. It's up to them.

And, Utah is the place where "Disney's The Lone Ranger", "Planet of the Apes", and "Footloose'' was filmed.

All religions have bigoted people. My family is a very tolerant and accepting family, not bigoted in any way. And there's a difference between being bigoted and following your religion very closely. And to generalize a whole group of people like this is offensive and immature.

(1 What's the big deal? You aren't even a part of the religion, and It's a very sacred place so obviously not just anyone is going to let you in. Don't act so ridiculed.
(2 For Young men, it is considered a duty. They don't try to be annoying, they are trying to preach the gospel to people who are willing to listen. I don't understand that part about the letters, that sounds odd. Nobody has to go, and why not go to college after you're done?
(3 Swearing to me is very immature, and sometimes i find them to just be hollow words. Most people nowadays get offended if you use foul language, regardless of their religion.
(4 I'm sorry if you had a bad experience but the members of MY branch are very tolerant and accepting of other peoples religion. I'm quite sure they certainly don't shun them, or try to make them feel unworthy.

I would assume they are being genuinely nice, but I can't speak for other people.

Hmmm, these all look like intolerant, butthurt opinions to me, not solid facts or reasons to dislike the organization (You could of used the fact that a man hundreds of years after Jesus later translated a so called book, that would make your point more valid because there's no evidence.) Please do some research before you write your description or make stuff like this. Just FYI insulting a state where they are commonly found just because you disagree with their beliefs makes you look like a butt. Please do reply, I'd love to have a nice, civilized conversation with you. :)

Linguistically speaking, swear words can act as emphasizers. "Don't touch the freaking/f**king lion" has a lot more force and urgency than just "don't touch the lion". There's just a time and place when and when not to use them.

Not a Mormon-hater like OP, just giving my two cents.

The person who made the stamp stated their view why can't we show out own side of the story? It seems a bit rude to call someone an asshole and slander them for standing up for something. If it makes them happy let them believe what they believe and don't go slandering them when they have personally done NOTHING to you

I believe she was addressing the Mormons like :iconsadistic-songbird: Who get overly butthurt and don't try to calmly approach the situation. What I don't agree with is her stating "like a few of you are going to take a LIFETIME away of bad experiences with a certain religion", I would have worded this part differently
"experiences with a few people of that religion", because it wasn't the religion that hurt him, it was lousy people who happened to be members of it did. Although, I fail to see how item (1) could have hurt him though.

How am I a bitch again? For stating my opinion? You just proved my point.
Why can't you prove your point civilly instead of being an asshole? Also, how am I "slandering" them? For calling them our on their intolerant bullshit? ONE PERSON says something about their religion and they go apeshit over it instead of doing what THEIR RELIGION SAYS. To TOLERATE AND LOVE no matter the person or the belief. They try to prove their point by doing the exact thing that makes me hate religion: intolerance and hatred. I was never referring to the people who tried to state their opinion in a calm and civil way. This was referring to the people lashing out with anger and hatred.

And actually I DO have a reason to hate Mormons you asshole so step off before you start saying shit you obviously have no knowledge about.

1. The temple is very sacred to Mormons, so there are restrictions
2.you are not required to go on a mission, but you are encouraged to
3. My family and I are Mormon and we swear quite a bit
4.that is a FUCKING lie


And judging by the rest of your stamps, you seem to be one of those douchebag atheists who thinks they know everything and have to tell anyone who believes in god they are wrong and stupid for having a religion.

You seem to be pretty butthurt about religion. Need a bandaid? :iconbutthurtplz:

you know NOTHING about Mormons.
1. you DO NOT HAVE TO MARRY IN THE TEMPLE.

2. you don't have to go on a mission, they want you to, but they don't say "GO ON A MISSION OR ELSE!"

3. swearing, ha! I hate it, because there's no need for it and I've seen Mormons swear, and what's wrong with respecting God and not taking his name in vain? nothing, we can say God but most say Heavenly Father.

4. one of my sister's best friend is muslin, and I like her, my whole family does and she's welcome over whenever she wants, in fact, we believe you should be able to choose your religion, not Mormon? we respect that, if a Mormon doesn't like you, it's probably because your rude to them and a jerk.
