You’re a Mormon? What does that mean?

You're a

Yes, friends, it is I. A Mormon. Or, as we prefer to be known, LDS. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You’ve heard of us. Some stuff true, some stuff completely ridiculous. Here are some links to hopefully answer your questions.

What exactly do you believe in? 

Do you really have to wear special underwear?

What is the Book of Mormon? Is it another Bible?

I heard Mormons don’t like gay people. Is that true?

Do Mormons believe in Christ? Do you still practice polygamy? What happens after we die? What goes on in Mormon temples?

That last one is a little cheating. But it links to the FAQ page on mormon.org and let’s you easily click on topics, questions, and shows the answers. All without having to jump page to page. I’m not going to deny that some of our beliefs and practices seem odd, especially with some of the things that seem like no big deal. For example, sex before marriage. It’s shown on TV all the time. It’s an everyday thing. I’ve even heard people comment, “I have to take him/her for a test drive. I don’t want to stay with someone if the sex sucks.” I’m not going to deny that sex is great. But it’s not only fun, it’s sacred. Sometimes I just want to reconnect with my husband and that’s a great way to do it. (Go ahead and laugh at all the inappropriate puns I just triggered.) Here’s a great article on chastity and why we encourage to wait until after you’re married to have sex.

Have any other questions? Mormon.org is a great resource. You can even chat with a real live Mormon! Or hit me up. Either way, I hope you find the answers you’re looking for.
