While in L&D with my sister, I made a comment about my church and she said "Why couldn't you choose to get baptized at a christian church?" I didn't want to get mad, I wanted to educate, but I figured L&D wasn't the right place to do that so I just responded that "It is christian". But I often wonder how people get their opinions of mormons.

I've known of churches that actually preach *from the pulpit* about the Mormon "cult." I just can't wrap my brain around it, but they do it. Plus it seems people get something they heard somewhere in their head and refuse to believe LDS people when we try to correct. Things like we worship Joseph Smith and don't believe that Jesus's crucifixion saved us. And then when someone tries to correct their misconceptions they will say things like "Mormons will tell you those are false, but I know better." What the heck??? That actually happened this week on another forum I sometimes lurk on. Most people don't realize our church's real name is The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints and if they do they sometimes claim it's not the "real" Jesus. Ummm, sorry. There's only one Jesus. I've even heard people insist we do not, absolutely do not, read the Bible and when Mormons say yes, we do, they still cling to their "knowledge" that we don't. This is doubly so when their own pastor or minister has said so. After all, if their church leader was wrong about that, what else might he be wrong about. It's not a path most people care to go down.

I am normally pretty good and just shrugging my shoulders and not letting their un-educated opinions bother me, but it did that day a little bit. I did tell my sister and her s/o that they should not go by hearsay and should do their own research. My sister's s/o started to say that LDS men have more than one wife, but my sister stopped him. It's so sad because I know that if these people would take a few moments to research, as I did, they would see that their opinions are incorrect. Instead they choose to be ignorant. I must also admit that if I was sitting in a pew where a preacher was badmouthing another religous group of people, I would definetly question him/her and their motives....it's ridiculous that other's don't do the same.
