In the small but cohesive Mormon community where he grew up, Hans Mattsson was a solid believer and a pillar of the church. He followed his father and grandfather into church leadership and finally became an area authority overseeing the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout Europe
When fellow believers in Sweden first began coming to him with information from the Internet that contradicted the churchs history and teachings, he dismissed it as anti-Mormon propaganda, the whisperings of Lucifer. He asked his superiors for help in responding to the members doubts, and when they seemed to only sidestep the questions, Mr. Mattsson began his own investigation.

LDS does not hold up under scrutiny.
The Book of Mormon is pure unadulterated POPPYCOCK!
It's a very funny play, though
There’s nothing you can’t find on the web.
these are frigtening times, with threats of dictatorship,the worship of evil, and the decimation of our families and our churchs...
there's less and less of "us" and more and more of them...the haters, the evil doers, the ones that embrace all sorts of idolatry and sin, and perversion...
and yet, we still love to bash in a whole community of people who have decent morals and believe in marriage, children, work ethic....
we need to band together, not slash at good people....we don't bash people who don't believe in ANY God, and certainly we don't bash Jewish people...why Mormons?....and Catholics get nearly the same treatmen...
It could be due to opposition to top down, controlling cults.
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
My thoughts exactly. And why did they choose the NY Times to publish about it?
If I were a Mormon I would be worried about my salvation. Smith was obviously a false in many of his statements and a leader of men into sexual immorality.
Why mormons?....could it be that the mormon church sends 75,000 (soon to be over 100,000) missionaries out into the world to bash the faith of Christians every day, 24/7 and claim mormonism is the "one true church" and the only way to salvation is through arcane rituals in mormon temples???
The dozens of FReepers who post the truth of mormonism here can multitask. We can consider "threats of dictatorship,the worship of evil, and the decimation of our families and our churchs.." as you state and fight against the "decimation of our Christian churches" by these thousands and thousands of mormon missionaries while considering the other threats.
I suggest that you might try reading the information that you find on these threads before jumping in to accuse other FReepers of "bashing".
This article would be a good start in your studies.
May ALL mormons find enough doubt to bring them to the truth of Christ and His salvation!
Just like the Koran, made up by mad-men claiming that angels spoke to them and told them what they wanted to hear.
The truth shall set you free.....or earn you a trip to Ft. Marcy Park.
I spoke with an inlaw not long ago and he was telling me about all these ancient battles that took place in New York. I didn’t want to get into with him and ask him how many bronze weapons had been found.
I always go back to my true belief about mormanism. I believe the church hides many cases of child molestation.
I voted for mccain because of Palin. Ryan was not a good excuse to vote for Romeny. God forgive me.
Mormons you are Trayvon...
My brother's laughing response: "Why would anyone pay attention to someone who couldn't refute Mormonism with an hour of research?" I think my brother has an excellent point. There is something really off about someone who claims to know so much about the founding of our nation and who claims insight into current events but cannot see the obvious problems with Mormonism.
Like comedian Emo Philips said to his mormon in-laws, it must be tough to belong to a religion that’s so easy to disprove.
I found my Nom De Jeur “Vendome” on some “Haters of LDS” site yesterday.
I don’t hate Mormons any more than they hate Christians.
We are Doctrinaly and theologically at odds, with far too many Christians giving LDS a pass and thinking Mormons are Christians too.
Mormons, on the other hand, have no misconceptions about what they are and what Christians are, which are divorced from each other.
Catholics and Baptists are part of the larger Body of Christ.
LDS is it’s own island, or inter-space stopover or planet....
