Why the Left-Wing Hates Mormons and How to Respond - Big Journalism

Why the Left-Wing Hates Mormons and How to Respond - Big Journalism | Mormon Moments | Scoop.it

We would all do well to read Article 11 of the LDS Articles of Faith, “We claim the privilege of worshiping Almighty God according to the dictates of our own conscience, and allow all men the same privilege, let them worship how, where, or what they may.”

But the Mormons have that wrong. It isn’t a privilege. It’s a right and we must all defend it.

Mormonism Obsessed with Christ by Stephen H. Webb

Mormonism Obsessed with Christ by Stephen H. Webb | Mormon Moments | Scoop.it

Mocking Mormonism is one of the last frontiers of verbal lawlessness to be untouched by the vigilante powers of political correctness. What other group is ridiculed equally by Christians and secularists—and not just any kind of Christian or secularist but the most fervent and hard core? Fervent Christians see in Mormonism a mirror distorting their own faith, reflecting an image strangely recognizable yet recognizably strange. Hard-core secularists think Mormonism is the best example of the strangeness and danger inherent in all religious belief. Deriding Mormonism pulls off the neat trick of making the devout and the godless feel as if they are on the same side.
