Count me as one more BELIEVER! I have to put up with bigotry, pompous, self
righteous, too wonderful and great among my own families and people.People
are so rude and mean just because I choose to join a religion. Before they
weren't religious at all - now church now nothing. but now suddenly everyones
all anti-mormon and pro something else.
My move to Utah was work related. I've been amazed at how gullible and dumb
people are "here in Utah." That is why the Mo church is so successful "here in
"7 gen- Mormon | 11:43 a.m. Feb. 21, 2009 Count me as one more NON
believer! I cannot stand the bigotry, pompous, self righteous, too wonderful and
great among my own families and people." OK, see ya.Then you'll get ticked off and say "See?! What a bunch of pompous jerks!"When all I did was say goodbye to your announcement to leave.
"One problem is the attitude | 10:42 p.m. Nov. 29, 2008 - like "Peters". It is a
"holier than thou" attitude...one that feels that "God" controls all and that
the Mormon church is the only "true" church."Sounds nice.There's just one little thing you don't understand.The LDS church
IS the only true and living curch upon the face of the earth. It is
the only church that has all of the truth that God has been able to thus far
reveal to His children. It is the only church that is organized as He wishes it
to be. It is the only church that possesses His authority to carry out the
ordinances necessary for salvation; baptism, bestowing the right to the constant
companionship of the Holy Ghost, and the joining together of families for all
eternity through ordinances carried out in the temples of God.If you
don't like that, take it up with God because He's the one that told me. Not my
parents. Not my bishop. Not my Sunday School teachers. God. Are
the members of the LDS church perfect?Nope.But the LDS
church is His church nonetheless.Cheers.

fruits, NOT send me a Prayer, and yes I did have a strong tesrmony, But now I
have an even stronger one, JESUS SAVES ! please oil your necks and seek,, you
will find !Again I love you all and may GOD Bless you.
"The LDS church's greatest critics are on the right, not the left."Really? It's true that Evangelical Christians, who tend to vote Republican,
are suspicious of Mormons.But who has been seeking to have the
Church's tax exempt status revoked after the passage of Prop 8? Who has been
protesting outside of the Church's temples? Who has been attempting, with some
success, to get Mormons fired from their jobs in California because they
supported traditional marriage?Hard-core conservatives are sometimes
suspicious of Mormons, but hard-core liberals are downright hostile. It's night
and day. Conservative Christians criticize us but also work with us on cultural
issues. Liberal activists want to destroy us completely as a Church.The LDS Church's most hostile, hardened, violent critics are on the
left, not the right.
Rednael wrote: "Don't celebrate so fast lefties"Umm. "Lefties?" You
realized that it was the REPUBLICANS that rejected Mormonism last year during
the McCain-Romney-Huckabee contest, right? The LDS church's greatest
critics are on the right, not the left.
Actually, when members of the Church leave Utah they take with them the gospel
to share. The Church membership is unquestionably increasing around the world.
The work is moving forward and no unhallowed hand can stop it. The sum of it
all is to take the gospel to every nation, kindred, tung and people... and then
shall the end come. It matters not what the enemies of the Lord will say or do.
Their actions will only bring them sorrow. When people say and do unkindness or
revile sacred things, it frankly hurts us... it hurts us to lose you. There is
no battle wherein the Church wins or loses. It will win. The battle is in
winning or losing the test of life.
Don't celebrate so fast lefties. One reason for the percentage decrease in
Mormons is the huge increase in the Hispanic population, who tend to be Catholic
AND socially conservative!
I heard that the Utah Missions of the LDS Church have the highest baptism rates
in the world. The more "diversity", the more converts.
like "Peters". It is a "holier than thou" attitude...one that feels that "God"
controls all and that the Mormon church is the only "true" church. There are a
number of them still around, but they will not last too much longer.
Yep, good Idea, We need to keep the nonmembers moving into Utah, because someone
has to keep the Mormons in line and in place so they behave themselves.
Looking at the charts the decline in percentage of population of mormons is
flattening out.So all those anti-mormons wishing it would go much
lower is only wishful thinking.Besides utah is the way it is because
of the mormons not inspite of.Which is why the most of the
non-mormons choose to live here.But the vocal nay-sayers simply
can't see the forest for the trees, they have surrounded themselves
in a tiny tiny tiny world of like thinkers, and refuse to see the world or Utah
as it really is.
You would think that with the amount of children some people have that the
dominance would stay. That being said. Utah with more religious, cultural and
ethnic diversity would be a good thing.
Agreed. We are also forgeting that people could be going to school out of State
too, and not counting the Missionaries from Utah in the mission field too.
It's not dooms day you conspirators out there....LOL!!

say several do you me five, ten or fifteen? Please share with us your sources I
am very interested! All the haters love these articles time to get out the
How about high paying jobs are everywhere but in Utah?
I love being surrounded by Mormons. If I have a need they are always helping
out. I feel safer and they seem to be happier more often than my other friends.
I'm not convinced that "mormons" are the problem.
seems that what ever the LDS membership is they seem to keep getting the top
spots in government. Until that stops we'll keep seeing the same old Utah.
Mormon church membership is declining. I personally know of several who have
had their names removed from the church roles. Activity rates are declining for
most wards. Retention of new members is a continuing and unresolved problem.
this is exactly why byu is losing their football supremacy.
This is a very misleading headline and article. It is not the Church
membership that is declining, it is the percentage of the population who are
church members that is declining. Since the population of Utah is increasing,
this is a very different issue and this article is misleading.
To: To This is:Utah doesn't have perversions?
I am thinking of retirng and moving back to some small town in Utah. Beautiful
scenery. Good fishing. Clean air. But the Mormonism keeps me
away. Good to see the population trends, however.
Like say, San Francisco? How about New Orleans? As with may other cities in the
country, both of these places are rampant with perversions.
great news. When the LDS population falls to somewhere around 10% I might
consider moving back. If only someone besides Mormons has gotten there first,
Utah would be one fantastic place to live!
Before leaving my mission one of the GAs told us "Elders, there are 2 ways of
growing this church, and one is more efficient." He then instructed us about our
next mission, to raise righteous families to the Lord. I would encourage all LDS
members to quit being so selfish. Spirit children deserve to be raised in the
gospel of Jesus Christ.
I would enjoy a Utah with more diversity.
Utah was a better place to live, before all of the "Gentiles" moved here.Maybe a "recession" or possibly a "depression", is God's will in ridding
Utah of the heathen un-faithful.
members of the church should put their raise aside that is why LDS Members in
Utah are declining
