Mainstream Christianity does not like the LDS claiming to be Christians and presents many arguments to articulate their objections, but the LDS still want to be recognized as Christians.

It seems ironic to me that a column was published by editor Joe Cannon, a mainstream Mormon, presenting arguments to articulate why members of the FLDS are not Mormons, yet still the FLDS consider themselves Mormons.

If being a Christian means being a believer in the teachings of Christ, why doesn't being a believer in the Book of Mormon make a person a Mormon?
