America's changing perception of Mormons
First they were portrayed as liars, deluded country bumpkins and blasphemers. Then, Mormons were philanderers with multiple wives and malevolent motives. But America's perception of Mormonism dramatically shifted at the 1893 World's Fair in Chicago when the relatively new Mormon Tabernacle Choir dazzled the crowd and the judges, earning a silver medal and requests for national tours.

"Suddenly, Mormons weren't just legitimate, they were popular," explained University of Richmond professor and religious scholar Terryl Givens during his lecture, "Fraud, Philanderers and Football: Negotiating the Mormon Image," at the first Mormon Media Conference Thursday and Friday at BYU.

However, in a religious gathering at that same world's fair, Mormons were deliberately not invited. Petitions for an invitation were eventually granted, but LDS apostle B.H. Roberts was not allowed to present his paper as were ...

8. They believe the Old Testament was corrupted by Jews and they believe the New Testament is also corrupted. So they refer to their faith as the ‚Äúrestored‚ÄĚ faith and when they find conflict between the Christian scriptures and theirs they obviously yield to the ‚Äúrestored‚ÄĚ documents.
9. They believe in a form of reincarnation or probably more accurately a transmigration of souls which says that all those who have lived on earth, first lived in heaven. Before coming to earth, God had sex in heaven with His wives and produced spirit babies. As men procreated on earth, those spirits come into the bodies of these babies. They have no recollection of their previous existence because they have been shrunk in some fashion and their memories are not longer available to them. Only through this ‚Äúphysical birth‚ÄĚ can they have opportunity to become gods like the millions or billions that already exist.
10. They believe the Garden of Eden was really in Missouri and that is where Christ will return.
11. Since they believe in the reinvented Christ of Joseph Smith’s imagination, they have absolutely no concept of the grace of God.
12. The list of their beliefs that do not match what the bible teaches is almost endless, but this certainly is enough to concur with the Apostle

Ah, and here they say, We're Christians just like you!. Mormons got more acceptable when they started joining ecumenical organizations like the Promise Keepers, q.v., Promise Keepers and the Rising Tide of Ecumenism.

2 Corinthians
12 But what I am doing, I will continue to do, that I may cut off opportunity from those who desire an opportunity to be regarded just as we are in the matter about which they are boasting.
13 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.
14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
15 Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their deeds.---NASB

Frank, that's the real problem, people just don't KNOW...

Isa 5:13 "Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because [they have] no knowledge: and their honourable men [are] famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst."

1. The Mormons believe there are literally millions/billions of Gods throughout the universe.
2. The Mormons do not believe the Holy Spirit is God, but simply a manifestation of God or a force.
3. The Mormons do not believe that Jesus was 100% God and 100% man while on earth. They believe He was the firstborn of the Father, the devil was the second born, so they were spiritual brothers in the beginning.
4. They believe that Jesus became a God because He lived a sinless life and sacrificed Himself for mankind.
5. They believe that God has a human body and actually had sex with Mary while she was engaged to Joseph. So she was a virgin before this intercourse, but was not a virgin at the time of Jesus’ birth.
6. They believe that Jesus’ death on the cross was only somewhat significant and that His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane was more significant in the forgiveness of sins. They have no cross in their churches and never stress the blood atonement.
7. They believe that only those who are baptized into the Mormon Church will be allowed to live on some other planet after this life. Some Mormons will actually become a God like Jesus did and will have their own world to rule. Other worthy Mormons will serve those Gods, but all others will be destroyed at death.
