  1. i read a little booklet on it once and I was shocked at how much better I understood after I had read a good brief description… I think more people misunderstand mormonism than even islam… a lot of times people’s hasty generalizations about islam are correct but their ideas of mormonism are completely wrong…

  2. Mormonism is one subject I would be leery of using out of copyright books to learn about, as it’s commonly said the LDS church of today is rather different from the LDS of fifty years ago.

    The Mormons do remind me of Muslims in their habit of proclaiming any book about their faith written by a non-believer immmediately inaccurate or worse, anti- faith. But it is always a simple way of keeping people ignorant of other viewpoints, I suppose, to suggest they never interact with other viewpoints.
