    Why do people insult Mormons and talk bad about them, even though the Mormons did nothing to them?

    I hate when people insult mormons. They never did anything bad. Rumors are started and they drive me crazy. Why do people have to hate?? sad

    The adversary knows the Restoration is here.  The more we progress the harder he pushes the hearts of man.  It used to bother me as well, however, I have come to realize that the more "anti" I come across the stronger my testimony becomes resolute.  We are to choose sides in this war continued on Earth.  Always remember the persecutions of Brother Joseph and most of all the Savior.  In Doctrine and Covenants either 122 or 123 the Lord states, "art thou greater than I?"  Good words to reflect on.  Don't let the world get you down.  You are in the right army.

    People are afraid of what they do not understand.  Though I disagree with Mormons, I do have a healthy respect for them.  I see talented individuals within their church who are truly blessed with music and creativity, and I applaud every effort to do good in this world.  Feature Films for Families is a good example of this creative effort to spread good in generalities, appealing to multi-faiths even though their founders are LDS.

    People, unfortunately, insult and say bad things about other people who has done nothing to them. The same with faiths. It is a lesser form of man's inhumanity to man. Don't even waste your time thinking about it. It is an exercise in futility.

    The LDS (Mormons) believe all other churches are an abomination. Is that not insulting to everyone that is not Mormon? The church started by Insulting everyone, what do you expect.
    (Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith 2:16-19, 1977) 19. I was answered that I must join none of them, for they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt; that: “they draw near to me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me, they teach for doctrines the commandments of men, having a form of godliness, but they deny the power thereof.” (Pearl of Great Price, Joseph Smith 2:16-19, 1977)
