Mormons Have Nothing to do With Texas Polygamy Sect: video
There is always a lot of confusion about who are the Mormons. A few years ago I noticed that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints started putting more emphasis on the official name of the Church by asking more clearly that members and not members use the full name of the Church, instead than saying “Mormon Church.”
However, in this video, Mormon spokesman Michael Otterson clearly says that the media should not call those little poligamyst sectsÂ ”Mormons” because there is really almost nothing in common between those groups and the Church.Â I like the idea of defending the nickname “Mormons” since it is widely used and recognized, and there is nothing to be ashamed of.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not allow its members to practice poligamy since the end of the 19th century. Moreover, the way poligamy was practiced more than a century ago was very different from the way it is practiced today by these groups, and the social environment is completely different.Â Â
Finally,Â many other aspects of the way these people live or believeÂ are different from what is taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
