  7. The Mormons have always confused me. I live near one of their important sites, and it just blows my mind how they can so willingly follow a patently obvious false prophet. Joseph Smith was a false prophet, sent to steal salvation from people, and that is exactly what he’s still doing all these years after his death.

      Mormons teach and practice an appealing blend of community, family values, and inclusiveness (which all goes away if you leave the LDS fold). They keep their most unbiblical doctrines in the background until one is deeply committed, knowing these are harder to swallow.
