What Non-Mormon Bloggers Say About Latter-day Saints

A lot of what can be found on the internet in relation to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints can appear to be of a negative nature. LDS Smile recently published an article highlighting non-Mormon bloggers and writers who have portrayed the Church in a very positive light.

Below are a few of our favorite from their compiled list.

Anna from An Inch of Gray:

“I’m not sure where I’m going with this, but in a post rife with gross generalizations, I’ll pile one more on. While I have sometimes looked at motherhood as something to be survived or endured, I think my Mormon friends see it as something to celebrate. As an ongoing special occasion…and who wouldn’t dress up for that?”

Jenny Erikson’s blog:

“I might will never be a Mormon. But they’re not scary. They don’t worship weird things, they don’t judge others (as a group, at least … I can’t account for every individual church member), and they are welcoming and friendly. They’re family oriented, but don’t disallow divorce. They honor mothers that stay home with the kids and the ones that work outside the home with equal regard.”

PhatGuru from TeenInk:

“Mormons have this sickening ‘love thy neighbor’ attitude, and if you know a Mormon with a firm belief in their religion they are most of the time out doing something for someone else, doing a fundraiser, volunteering for a humanity project, helping a family with a member whom is sick, they are selfless people. Honestly it is sickening. The very thought of people constantly only wanting to help another person in need purely to help the other person and seeking no reward makes you pose the question is it all an act? What has been shown is no it isn’t an act, it is their chosen way of life. Mormons believe Jesus Christ to be the corner stone of their religion and try their hardest to be as much Christ-like as possible and as most people know Jesus Christ was the most perfect being to walk on this earth only ever serving his fellow man. Why then do people give them such a hard time if they are such good people?”
