I can tell you all that we are not a secret society. Also, before anyone tries to tell me that I was brainwashed, I came to the LDS Church.
However, I would like to know why someone who posted earlier would want to include the Mormons (known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints) in that list of secret socities.
Mormons do have some secrecy, plus...only select few are allowed into the Temple....
Not to mention, Joseph Smith was a Freemason.
Don't believe me? feel free to go look it up, i'll wait....
besides, not all secret societies are satanic....Masons got that reputation because Albert Pike used the word Lucifer in some writings. the problem
is that Lucifer doesn't necessarily mean devil...it means Morning Star. feel free to look that one up too, i'll wait...
okay, good? good.
anyway, take into account that a requirement to be a Mason is belief in a supreme being of some sort...they just won't dictate who that deity is...so
you can be Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Muslim...you get the idea. and they use a bible in some of their ceremonies...that's THE Bible. not too
Look, i'm not promoting Masons, and i'm not discriminating Mormons...i'm just saying:
They have more in common that you realize...think about it, before you judge too quickly.
