Bye-the-way, Protester, where do you get such warped interpretations of LDS doctrines and beliefs? They are not even close to our teachings.
By doing what you're obviously afraid to do -- listening to those who had the courage to escape from the lies, and to speak out publicly to help those who are not afraid and have the common sense to know that something is terribly wrong.

Protestor, you must have put a lot of work into this. I understand what the beliefs of Mormonism were when the church first began, but it is like the alien in the movie of the same name. It mutates so fast in response to environmental stimuli and situations that no one can tell where it is at any given moment now.

Most criticisms of the Mormon church are based on understanding of the original teachings of the church, since no one actually knows what the church believes now -- including the Mormons themselves. There were many converts in Nauvoo in the early 1840's who thought they knew what Mormonism was all about, but they had no idea that there was already a divine revelation commanding polygamy written out and locked away until the proper time to spring it.
