We do not view ourselves to be “anti-Mormon” and think that this term is a derogatory label applied to critics of Mormonism in hopes of silencing them. Once someone is labeled an “anti-Mormon,” most Mormons will not listen to anything said by that individual and will feel justified in doing so because of the label.
As an example, I have handed gospel tracts to many Mormons only to have them given back once another Mormon tells them, “Don’t take that, it is anti-Mormon.” The interesting thing is that the tract I was handing out doesn’t say a word about Mormonism. It is nothing more than a modern-day parable about forgiveness of sins, but because Mormons fear the label, I am viewed with suspicion and my material is rejected.
We readily admit that we are critics of Mormonism, but that does not mean we are anti-Mormons. Anti-Mormonism, yes, but not anti-Mormon. If we are anti-Mormon for criticizing Mormonism, then to be consistent, the Mormon Church must be viewed as anti-Christian for criticizing Christianity. We love the Mormon people and want them to have the same forgiveness of sins that we have. For more on how the LDS Church has attacked Christianity, click here.
