This blog is about harmful teachings. It is not an attack on individuals who belong to the LDS church. Most Mormons are not racists but they are influenced by what they believe is the word of God.
The Mormon Newsroom’s official statement says that there is no racism inside the church and everybody is welcome to become just like them. On the surface this sounds good, but look inside the Book of Mormon.
It teaches that the wrath of God is on the indigenous peoples of the Americas. They are cursed. They are deserving of losing their lands and to be smitten and scattered until they understand who God is and join the Mormon church. This is in the Book of Mormon.
Throughout the world, churches and governments are working to address and deal with covert racism while the Book of Mormon continues to feed counterproductive teachings.
