I just want to say something, my religion is Shaman. We aren't "devil" worshippers; we worship our ancestors and the ones we loved and the people in our life who had passed away. I love to learn about God, Jesus, the Virgin Mary, etc but what I really hate is how missionary people ALWAYS try to convert me. Some actually RESPECT me saying no to them but others, ugh... They just keep coming. So just something to you all out there: please respect other's religion when they respect yours. Don't tell them that their religion is wrong and yours is right. We all have only ONE Creator in this world and He is very DIFFERENT to us in many DIFFERENT ways but He is still just ONE person.

I don't mean to be offensive with this. I find the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to be an interesting parody of creationism. It's also known as Pastafarianism.

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:18-20 KJV)

The Roman Empire referred to Christians as "atheists" because they were not polytheistic.

This is an example of America becoming more accepting and moving towards equality: a Congressman sworn in on something other than the Christian Bible. Obviously we still have our issues, but that a Congressman can be sworn in on the Constitution or the Koran and that a military person can be buried with a Wiccan pentacle indicates forward movement to me.

As with many religions the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as Mormon or LDS) has many break offs similar to it. The most common one are the FLDS or Fundamentalists. In the beginning of the church after Joseph Smith (the prophet) was killed by an angry mob, there was a lot of contention and confusion over who should be the next prophet. While the majority agreed with who took over, several did not and broke off into their own religions. Just because religions may have similar beliefs or names do not mean they are all the same. For example the FLDS still practice polygamy the LDS or Mormons stopped that many many years ago. Do not judge before you really know your facts. This goes for all religions. If you want to know more ask; just don't assume.
