Mormon influence, imagery runs deep through `Twilight’
Ever since Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” began haunting the imagination in 1897, popular culture has identified Christian symbols—crucifixes, holy water, Communion wafers—as weapons to ward off a blood-thirsty vampire.

The “Twilight” novels and film franchise have religious associations, too—but most of them come from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons).

There may be some truth to this. The author is a graduate of Brigham Young University.

Aparently Mormon writings teach that Native Americans have dark skin, because they were punished by God.

SKIN COLOR IN MORMON SCRIPTURE AND THEOLOGY

Jesus taught that marriages, do not extend after death and The Resurrection:

Mark 12:18-25

Mormons teach that they will be: "[g]od's of their own worlds." And: Will have an etrnal marriage partner from this life and populate their own worlds.

Jospeh Smith was said to have had the angel Moroni appear to him, it is then no wonder Paul says: "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."

"A crucial Mormon belief is that humans can become divine. In the “Twilight” series, the Cullen family of vampires was once human but now lives without death in a resurrected condition. Their immortality is a kind of probationary period for eternal life"

Sounds like this comedy is based upon the latter day cartoons of Utah.

You have to remember that Mormons say, We're Christians just like you! but of course they aren't. Do Mormons believe the same as Christians do?--- What is it that separates Mormonism from traditional Christianity?.
My experience with Mormons is that they always draw a line between them and I. Which I am fine with because they teach falsehood. They show "pity" because I don't believe in Joseph Smith's teachings: And if I would only let them explain then I would believe. Little do they know: I have already studied and have rejected the teachings of Joseph Smith and this because they are not in line with God's Word, Will or Truth.

I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. Galatians 1:6-9

"As you are now we once were, and as we are now, you will one day be"
I see phrases similiar to this on a LOT of tombstones today.

One read: "As you are now I once was, and as I am now, you will one day be...Follow me!"

To which someone later cleverly added: "To follow you I'll not consent, 'till I know which way you went!"

The charge of Mormanism regarding this movie (not that I've seen it or plan to)seems to be a stretch, after reading the entire article. The reasaoning is based on coincidental and flawed logic. You don't have to look to the evil of Mormanism to know that this movie and ones like it are evil.
Having said that; it is not without precedent though that Mormanism has used the media in this way. In the late 70s and early 80s the was a Sci Fi show called Battlestar Galactica in which there were two distinct eposodes of Morman teaching. In one, three of the piolets were taken aboard a giant ship of light ( a Morman version of the New Jerusalam). There there was a race of angelic or god like beings, who told them "As you are now we once were, and as we are now, you will one day be" The show aslo had many other themes of New Age and occult themes. It's important to be discerning. But I think this article may be seeing mormon where it may not be. Better just to warn of the obvious evil of the show.
