Now that pain I do understand, Ray. I remember the history class I took that said that Mormons were not Christians. I remember standing up and stating quite firmly that they were indeed Christian, and being able to back it up with my personal knowledge as a Mormon. I answered a lot of questions that day. I know that many Christian churches do not recognize Mormon baptism. And I'm sure that leads to defensiveness.

I've even seen some religious websites where there were huge flame wars going on between Mormons and other Christians, and I've seen books in the Christian bookstores about the Mormon faith that really make me feel sick. Because although I am no longer a Mormon, there are parts of me that will always be Mormon, ways of viewing the world that were taught to me when I was young.

But that's the beauty of this website. Dr. Bob won't, or rather shouldn't, allow one religion to put down another or say that their way is the only way, or the better way. You shouldn't have to feel defensive, because at this website, no one will be allowed to say anything against Mormons or Mormon beliefs. But I think you have to be equally careful to respect other Christian beliefs, Jewish beliefs, Muslim beliefs, Hindu beliefs, ancestor worship beliefs, etc. (and despite what even Dr. Bob might say, humanistic philosophical beliefs as well).
