I'm a Mormon and nothing is false as you claim except the typical hatred type wording you and other Anti-Mormon people use. We do have Temples. It has made me a better person. You have read the Old Testament I assume? Everything you have talked about is in the Bible. These things are not "done in a corner". The apostles were accused of setting the area in an uproar too. Alot of Mormons were rounded up and killed by people in the early days of the church who spoke just like you. Thats somewhat troubling and you sound very unchristian like in your assessment. Christ told the apostles not to cast their pearls before the swine. Is that keeping secrets? Or is it because some of these things are considered sacred?

You Sacred is both Secret and Lied about. We understand, you're taught to. That is why only cult members are allowed into such places to see and hear such things. No other Christian faith has anything like it, but then again, Mormons aren't Christians.

The answer seems to be yes, unfortunately, but the results are somewhat encouraging.
