Pride and Prejudice: Racism in the Mormon Church

The following is an excerpt from a wonderful book: Cults, New Religious Movements, and Your Family: A Guide to Ten Non-Christian Groups Out to Convert Your Loved Ones. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you do! As part of our Cults & Deliverance Series, we’re uncovering the truth about Mormonism, better known as The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS). This is a section from the book, “Pride and Prejudice” which deals with the history of racism in the Mormon Church (Chapter Nine: Mormonism Through the Looking Glass pg. 205). And while many LDS believers will ALWAYS disagree with what people like me who have never been Mormon (and don’t desire to be!) as well as those who have left the Mormon Church, they never seem to be able to refute the words of their founders and (false) prophets. This excerpt contains several of those irrefutable quotations from Joseph Smith, Brigham Young, Joseph Fielding Smith, and others. So without further ado, here is “Pride and Prejudice.”
