This is a little off topic but, i was raised in a mormon family. i thought mormons were sooooo nice and caring and wrongly discriminated against. THEN i grew up! they brain wash their members. i remember being told that as soon as i was 18 i needed to go enroll at BYU find a nice return missionary get married and pop out 5 babies so that i could gaurantee a spot in the celestrial kingdom! yes they believe there are different "levels" of heaven and you can only go to the highest level of glory if you are married with kids and baptized in the mormon church.
I just want to ask in why so many people are so urgent in portraying "mormons" as totally evil, and wrong in their beliefs and intentions..I've come to learn that LDS members (if any of u had the chance to meet them) are very nice...well kept...humble people....they are always striving to do good...and will help anyone they can if they get the opportunity...so why all the fuss....they are much more "Christ-like" than most people in this "materialistic" world...can't you just respect them..the way they respect "you"...just approach them as a regular person...not as someone who you "think" is learned of a "crazy" religion..just ponder about this...
John 6:28-29 (King James Version)
Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

If Mormons' continue to degrade civil liberties, then their brand of thinking is crazy. But, I guess I am pro-happiness, and pro-free will.
Mormoms for free will?
Actions and behaviors seem to tell me otherwise.
Judging is something we recieved by listening to SATAN.
Free Will is why SATAN was jealous.
Free Will was God's gift to man.
Mormons demonstrate they are not for "Free Will".
Mormons' ideology only offend me because they offend God's will.

....Yes their are three "Levels" of Heaven, their are three different glories because it wouldn't be fair for a person who followed heavenely father scriptures word by word and be placed in the same room with a man who went to church off and on and lived by half of the scriptures.
Another Example, wouldn't it be fair a child with perfect attendance recieve the same and equal reward as a child with out perfect attendance? You get my drift?
And Mormons are not "Brainwashed" thats just a dumb assumption, respect us will ya sheesh.
