    No. Mormons comprise about 2% of America's religious followers.  The media would have us believe otherwise, especially with Mitt Romney's success in the Primaries.

      I believe the Mormon faith is only gaining growth outside the U.S.

    NO! The vast majority of the America is NOT Mormon. So from a pure mathematical reality -- Mormonism could never become the primary religion in America without a huge conversion rate occurring.

    and a third "No"

    Mormonism is too eccentric in too many ways for most people to consider following it. The "no caffeine" clause alone...

    No. The up and coming religion is Islam. I think Catholics are the largest, at least for now. Protestant Christians are on the decline. Mormon don't have a chance. I don't think people convert to Mormon, they are born that way.

      Catholics are not a religion. They are part of the religion of Christianity. As for Islam being an "up an coming" religion-only for those who wish to blow themselves up and degrade women. And Islam really is a political ideology cloaked in religion

      Catholicism is a part of Chritianity, but it is a religion of itself as well.

      And Islam is really religion- it's just been co-opted by political terrorists ( much as Christianity was in earlier times...)

      Catherine: Islam is a "real" religion that calls for the killing of Christians and non-believers. Islam is a political ideology under the guise of religion.

      L
      Most of Islam doesn't call for killing Christians. Those who do this are political extremists using religion to justify bad acts(like conservative Christians justifying hate crimes vs gay folks), but that's not the actual religion

    According to our President, our country is no longer Christian. Of course, 80% of the country disagrees with him but what do we know.
    Our country is comprised of a largely diverse conglomeration of religions and will stay that way. If the government stays out of our religions, it will anyway. That is what our Constitution guarantees. Unfortunately, our governing bodies have decided that what we are guaranteed is that the religions will stay out of the government.
    I do not believe that Mormonism will ever be the predominant religion because it is based on a man who was a crook. Research and you will see.

      the founding fathers didn't just say that government would stay out of religion. They said separation of church and state, to try and prevent some of the political abuses committed by certain religions

    2. Lions Den Media profile image61
      Lions Den Mediaposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Catherine - there is NO such statement or clause in any government document claiming "separation of church and state". The Constitution ensures the government doesn't adopt an "official" religion that doesn't preclude us from being a Christian nation

    3. Catherine Kane profile image88
      Catherine Kaneposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      ..it also doesn't make us a Christian nation, either. The official statement is that government shall make no laws regarding an establishment of religion or prohibiting free exercise thereof.

      That applies to all faiths, not just Christianity

      Well, when they tell a school that has an entire graduating class that wants a prayer, that they cannot, they are interfering with our freedom. This country was founded by people who were persecuted for their religions, the persecution continues.

    Is it becoming a religion that represents the USA?

    When we think of religions like Hindu, Buddhism, Christianity, Muslim and so on.  When you think about these what nations comes to mind.

    Is the Mormon religion becoming world wide know?
