I hear everyone on this site always if not attacking at least suggesting that the LDS church are some sort of crazed weirdos and I live in Utah and don't get out of state very often so I was wondering what do you guys actually know about Mormons or are there any questions you would like to ask?

Just to start out I am going to debunk some of the popular misconceptions
1. Mormons Don't have Horns
No we don't where did that idea come from in the first place?
2. Polygamy
The LDS church ended polygamy in 1890 by President Willford Woodruff
3. The Giant Race of Underground Lizardmen
No there is not a giant cave underneath Utah that houses a secret alien race of lizardmen called the Melchezidek
4.(and my personal favorite) Sacrificing Virgins on top of temples
No the Mormon church does not sacrifice virgins on top of our temples and throw them in the Great Salt Lake do your realized what kind of throwing arm that would require just form the Salt Lake City Temple to say nothing of the Hawaii temple

Is there racism in The Book or Mormon? I think I remember reading about that somewhere that your scriptures said some not so pleasent things about blacks.

No I don't think I have encountered anything that would be considered racist in the Book of Mormon and there is actually no mention of Blacks at all in the Book of Mormon as far as I know

Ok, maybe just a rumour then. I think I have a copy of The Book of Mormon somewhere. I should find it and read it.

HA! In Mormonism blacks are that way because they are the previous spirits of the angels which disobeyed God in the beginning and are thus given a curse.

I would say that would be a good thing as long as you aren't reading it to just try and find the holes in it

Well the reason that they are not referenced is because the people in the Book of Mormon existed on a different continent than black people which could very possibly be the reason they are not in the Book of Mormon

Could you tell me where you got that from and I know that is certainly not in the Book of Mormon

The Book of Mormon condemns people and curses them with "dark skin." There are several verses that show God calling people burnt skinned and filthy.

"The worst thing that can happen to a good cause is, not to be skillfully attacked, but to be ineptly defended."

Really where are these verses and actually
God did place a curse upon a group of wicked people called the Lamanites and one of the marks of the curse was dark skin however these are not blacks but Native Americans

There is a reason why one man is born black and with other disadvantages, while another is born white with great advantages. The reason is that we once had an estate before we came here, and were obedient; more or less, to the laws that were given us there. Those who were faithful in all things there [pre-existence] received greater blessings here, and those who were not faithful received less. . . . There were no neutrals in the war in Heaven. All took sides either with Christ or with Satan. Every man had his agency there, and men receive rewards here based upon their actions there, just as they will receive rewards hereafter for deeds done in the body. The Negro, evidently, is receiving the reward he merits (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, 1:61, 65-66;

Native Americans, Blacks, whoever. It still seems discriminatory. Things like this all point towards The Book of Mormon being man-made.

Had I anything to do with the negro, I would confine them by strict law to their own species, and put them on a national equalization"(Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, 270; History of the Church, 5: 218)

"...wherefore, as they were WHITE, and exceeding fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a SKIN OF BLACKNESS to come upon them."(BOOK OF MORMON, page 61, 2 Nephi 5, verse 21)"
"We must raise the standard of the Old, free, decentralized, and strictly limited Republic."

I admit I had weird feelings about Mormons before I knew anything about them. In high school, some Mormons came to my Religion & Philosophy class as guest speakers. I really wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt that they weren't any crazier than other Christians. But as much as I tried, the entire experience felt like creepy cult propaganda.

Other than that, I think it's pretty hypocritical when non-Mormon Christians criticize Mormons for being weird, as if Catholicics/Protestants/Evangelicals/etc. don't have their own strange ideas.

1. They weren't written back then.
2. It does mention dark skin as a curse.

There is a reason why one man is born black and with other disadvantages, while another is born white with great advantages. The reason is that we once had an estate before we came here, and were obedient; more or less, to the laws that were given us there. Those who were faithful in all things there [pre-existence] received greater blessings here, and those who were not faithful received less. . . . There were no neutrals in the war in Heaven. All took sides either with Christ or with Satan. Every man had his agency there, and men receive rewards here based upon their actions there, just as they will receive rewards hereafter for deeds done in the body. The Negro, evidently, is receiving the reward he merits (Joseph Fielding Smith, Doctrines of Salvation, 1:61, 65-66

Could you give me where you got that source from or do you actually posses that book?

I learned this while taking a study class on Mormonism, but here's the like I copied that from: http://www.christiandefense.org...

Could I get where you got this from or are you actually in possession of the book
"...wherefore, as they were WHITE, and exceeding fair and delightsome, that they might not be enticing unto my people the Lord God did cause a SKIN OF BLACKNESS to come upon them."(BOOK OF MORMON, page 61, 2 Nephi 5, verse 21)"

Okay couple of things.
1)You and me are using diffrent BoM's my 2 Nephi 5, 21 is on page 66
2)Are you trying to say that god caused the Nephites to be black because it was Native American
3)God did this because they had hardened their hearts against the word of the Lord

I've always wondered though; I've constantly heard people make fun of Mormonism in saying that they believe in magical under-pants. What is that referring to?

Is there racism in The Book or Mormon? I think I remember reading about that somewhere that your scriptures said some not so pleasent things about blacks.

No I don't think I have encountered anything that would be considered racist in the Book of Mormon and there is actually no mention of Blacks at all in the Book of Mormon as far as I know

Racist.

Well the reason that they are not referenced is because the people in the Book of Mormon existed on a different continent than black people which could very possibly be the reason they are not in the Book of Mormon

Have you had brain surgery recently?

What prompts that question?

Gee, I don't know...maybe that little bitty incident called the slave trade?

The events detailed in the Book of Mormon span from 600BC - 400AD the slave trade wasn't around at that point

1. They weren't written back then.

What wasn't written back then?
2. It does mention dark skin as a curse.
Yes but Native American people could also be called dark skinned

here is what the official church website says
