Well, the big news now is a statement by the Mormon Church about rights for “gays.” They are willing to compromise, yet those who practice homosexuality have already turned down such a compromise. The real problem here is that the Mormons pretend that “gays” don’t already have the exact same rights as everyone else, and what they really want — and are getting — are special rights base on their sexual behavior! So, my big question is this: Why aren’t Mormons taking God’s side on this issue?

Mormon teaching on abortion is quite convoluted. So why is abortion a sin?
Janis Hutchinson has done an excellent study on the bizarre Mormon “Law of Adoption.” It’s quite a long paper, but she does give you an alternative to select a “condensed version.
Moving along with some current Mormon news, it looks like some “doctrine” is being removed from the Doctrine & Covenants
Christians Apologetics & Research Ministry has some “Interesting Quotes from Brigham Young.” There are so many examples of unbiblical nonsense!
CARM also has a list of very interesting “Questions for Mormons” which I’d like Mormons to answer!
Kent Ponder takes an in-depth look of the Jaredite ships described in the book of Ether in the Book of Mormon. After explaining what the text says, Ponder has 40 thought-provoking questions which should make any Mormon take notice of problems with this story.
The last two items, by James White, come from Alpha & Omega Ministries.
First, we have some quotations from Mormon leaders telling us what they think of the Christian faith - i.e., the true Christian faith vs. Mormonism. They are not very nice.
Second, White gives a timeline of The Evolution of Mormon Theology. Most Mormons have no idea about this true history of their teachings.
