    I've seen this video on youtube before. I think it's several chapters actually. Would make a great science fiction movie. Too bad this completely insane sh-t is supposed to be educational.

    Apparently none of the commenters were able to catch that this was not made *by* the Mormons, but *about* the Mormons by people seeking to spread lies about them to scare their congregations from ever talking to someone with actual knowledge. It's propaganda. Did you know that Muslims sacrifice babies and eat them? I have a video about it that was “disowned” by the “Powers That Be”… come on people. The very first sentence gives away that it was never produced by the Mormon church! But it's more sensational to say that it's some secret video that “they” don't want you to see… lol.

        Lol does it realy matter who made the cartoon since it is what the mormons realy believe anyway .. read a mrmon book and thats the jist of it. Except the part about god walking up to marrys house … he didnt do that … he picked her up at planned parenthood.

        • Guest

          No. It is not what Mormons believe. Not at all. This was not made by the church, and nothing in this video is true.

          • DC

            Nothing? That is bullshit. I was LDS for 22 years, even served an LDS Mission, and I can assure you that most of it is, in fact, what they believe. If you are mormon and don't know this, then I feel very sorry for your ignorance.

  • Someone

    Mormonism is just like Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard once said….”if you want to become very rich, simply start a religion” the man died very wealthy for just that reason. And we ALL agree that Scientology is just complete BS. Its like the imagination of people on LSD or magic mushrooms (ahem….the guy who invented Mormonism) Its really entertaining, like free movies or the internet…only its people…very stupid people.

  • drdoolittle

    I was raised Mormon. I am not a member of the church nor have I been for over a decade. I will admit that this video is pretty entertaining, but unfortunately the majority of this is not what Mormons believe. I went to church every sunday for about 11 years, including attending early morning seminary and can say, not as a mormon, but as a scholar, that this information is full of slander. There are elements of truth in there, but most of it seems to be the work of someone looking to take down a “competing” church.

    • Mike

      The problem is that what they taught in Sunday school and seminary was filtered doctrine. What those classes tend to focus on is topic controlled reviews of scripture, not deep doctrine. The Church shies away from sharing that info, even actively dodging legitimate questions. Ask a church leader point by point and see what answers you get. There is also the issue of doctrine being reinterpreted time and again throughout LDS history, major Book of Mormon revisions time and again, Temple rituals changing, hymnals changing… all doctrine fudging to lure members away from focusing on the hilariously ridiculous beliefs Mormonism was founded on. I'm also about a decade out of being LDS, and I disagree, “Most” of this is accurate, not slander.

      • Rebecca

        You seem to be confusing the Mormon religion with the Catholic religion. Mormons are taught and encouraged to study all the scriptures in their own time, alone, in groups, with family- whatever, in order to further understand it all within themselves. And if things change within the church, that's simply because the WORLD is changing. How can anything remain the same over so many years?

        • iphlogiston

          Yes, but isn't it in your precious scriptures somewhere that say the Lord thy God is the same today, yesterday and tomorrow? Didn't the Church “change” doctrine about letting blacks hold the priesthood? Or about women praying in Sacrament meeting? Hmph, some God if He chooses to change His mind so many times.

          “Eye for an eye.”

          “Sike! Love one another!”

        • lisaloo

          Nothing Christ Jesus ever said to do was against the law, then or now. Pretty timeless.

          Not so with Joseph Smith. That cartoon says that Joseph Smith was prosecuted and convicted of FRAUD, and that he admitted to it.

          Is that true? Seems like there should be records that can prove that.

  • polaritymonkey

    It would suck if this tuned out to be true…

  • Cody

    The mormons definitely have a different view than most christians, but most of that video was made up.

    for example, god knocking up mary, and jesus having wives, and all that bull.

    oh yeah, and they don't believe that adam was god.

    frankly most of it was crap.

    • Mike

      Actually, Cody, it's not made up. I served a mission. I was Mormon for the first 30 years of my life. I know this doctrine they're teaching is accurate as outlined in this cartoon. The spirit of God descending on Mary to make her pregnant is LDS doctrine as God literally getting the virgin pregnant by sex. The delivery of all of this doctrine is filtered to not be so off-putting to believers. If not, they'd stop believing… like I did. Many Mormons will believe this is made up, but it's not. It's straight fact.

      • Angela

        Um…Mike, have you read the Bible? All Christians believe that Jesus was born to a virgin. Nowhere (and I can guarantee this) does it say in Mormon doctrine that God showed up on Mary's doorstep and knocked her up. Or any other religion. If you served a mission, you slept through it.

        • Iain

          “The birth of the Saviour was as natural as are the births of our children; it was the result of natural action. He partook of flesh and blood—was begotten of his Father, as we were of our fathers,” (Journal of Discourses, v. 8, p. 115).

          http://www.journalofdiscourses.org/volume-08/

          Took me 5 minutes of searching the interwebs. I only know one way to interpret that text, and that is that the mormon beliefs seem to claim that Jesus was not a virgin birth.

  • Guest

    Mormonism of today is so sanitized from what it used to be. For example? Just like Jehovah's Witnesses both religions believed stuff like over time black people would “turn” white once they were in paradise or the afterlife. Older people in the religions remember those freaky teachings. But you're spiritually weak or sick, apostate or have bad motives if you speak aloud of these things anymore. Most of the younger generation just don't believe these things were ever taught at all in their religion's history because it simply has been wiped away or explained away or used by their leaders to put fear in their hearts against the worldly.

    • Very true

      Agreed I was raised Jehovah's Witness, in a very scholarly manner I might add, and it's very true that history is wiped like a shaken etch-a-sketch time and again. The easy way to keep everything buried is within your religion. The bulk of solid JWs were born into it, and if you can raise someone with incredible fear and guilt then they will avoid any education other than the one they fear infraction from. I had to do a lot of research in leaving the religion to see just what I'd come from, and there are too many ludicrous incidents, and contradictions in their history to mention. I've personally never come across any racism with JWs, but they did have a lot of people walk when the world was still here after 1975. The justification for everything that goes wrong is Proverbs 4:18 (not gonna quote BS) at any rate the “light grows brighter and brighter” as though your hindsight is illuminating your path ahead, but the bible is supposed to be a prophecy that people can count on, so why would you ever screw up? Why would you claim a date for the end of the world? Whatever, I don't care, I can't convey 25 years of thought in rhetoric. I know what I know now and it didn't come from the bible, or any religion. One that claims it is less crazy, or more right than the other has already screwed the pooch. If you want to believe, and be spiritual don't invite anyone to join you, and you're probably going to be a bit closer to reality and the almight “truth”.

  • paddedroom

    Twisted shit.

  • paddedroom

    Total bullshit.

  • Jordan

    I grew up as a Mormon (LDS) and I can tell you this is exactly what Mormons believe. The obsession with sex, polygamy and procreation is not as prominent as it would seem in this video, in fact its not even discussed openly but it is sort of an undertone in the religion. Every man in the church understands that is why they want to be gods. Polygamy and an eternity of sex in heaven is why men do it. The publicly given reason is a focus on family and how awesome that is. But that's sort of like watching porn for the goofy ass hilarious plots. In reality you wanna see the sex.

    Now this is not to say that Mormonism hasn't changed and modernized. They don't practice polygamy anymore. They don't openly consider blacks to be evil or unworthy. But they are very much racist, they openly discourage mixed race marriages, they claim its simply a choice their one family has made, like a rule only they follow. But every Mormon family I have ever known growing up; including my own had this rule.

    And while they have modernized their message, they have not changed their bible so all of this stuff is still in there, and still taught. It's just not free styled by the bishops anymore.

    • Angela

      I have to call BS on you Jordan. If you really knew all about being a Mormon, you would never have said “their bible.” Mormon's use the same Bible as every other Christian religion–the King James version, because it is most widely accepted as a correct translation. I think you meant the Book of Mormon, which is NOT the Bible (and Mormons never claimed it was).

      • Katrina

        Actually it is “their” bible. They don't use the KJ Version. At least not here in Utah. They use the Joseph smith translation.

        • Scott

          Not true, Katrina. The approved standard works of the Church use the KJV of the bible. There are some references to the inspired version, and selected passages from it in the back of the KJV used by the Church. More BS, I'm afraid.

      • Mike

        Seconded. Saying “nothing that could even remotely be considered factual in this cartoon” is the perfect example of Mormon's wanton naivety in order to steer away from blatant obvious silly doctrine that challenges their belief. “Avoid the very appearance of evil,” is a favorite phrase of the LDS, touted to inspire Mormons to steer clear of anything “anti-Mormon” media. People who “fall away” are lessons Mormon's keep using as inspiring examples of what could happen to them if they read some pamphlet or watch media like this that sparks a questioning mind. It's horrific. My entire family is Mormon, and I'm an outcast because I just can't keep believing in this crap any more than I can keep believing in the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.

    • bob

      This video is from an actual video put out by the mormon church. I have an old vhs tape that this came from and it is a actual representation of the beliefs of the church. Of course the church has had thousands of changes to their bible and associated literature so it is no suprise the they want to keep this from public knowlege.

      • FatsMcGee

        I’m not mormon and what little I know about their church leads me to beleive it’s silly but this cartoon was not put out by the mormon church, that’s just not factual. Just google this like I did when I came across it on youtube and you’ll discover it was put out by mormon opponents. I don’t really care either way, but I hate seeing false info being spread. The cartoon may be acurate, I don’t know since I don’t really know much about the mormon religion, but it wasn’t put out by them.

    • Spaceforjesus

      If you believe all that morman garbage you are truely decieved. Read the whole book and you will see.

  • Mike

    While the average Mormon might not believe many of the things on the video, the morning teachings in the Book of Mormon, Doctrines and Covenants, Pearl of Great Price, and other writings by their prophets actually do teach everything the video listed. Fortunately Mormons (like lots of people) dont do much independent research and just listen to what their authority figures tell them and that spares them from believing what authentic Mormonism has to say. Read some books, its all there.

  • Rick

    As a former Mormon, I can confirm that all of this is accurate. It may not be taught this explicitly nowadays since Mormonism is currently undergoing a make-over to make it more appealing to mainstream Christians, but everything this video contains is spot on. Younger Mormons are probably out of touch with these teachings, but they are classical, mainstream Mormon belief.

    • Kohlrabi

      All religion is dangerous. It is made up for the sole purpose of controlling other human beings, especially women. Woman's place in Mormonism is procreation. They are trained from birth to be attractive to men, to accept male dominance, to kowtow to the church's elders, to put up or be shunned.

      Mormon polygamy is still practiced in this country, possibly by as many as 30 thousand families.

      I'm surprised no one mentioned THE GARMENT. Did you know that both Mormon men and women are obliged to wear a specific, long undergarment under their clothing? it's prescribed by the church.

      Also no one mentioned the practice of adopting the dead from other religions without anyone's permission, and “saving” them by baptizing them Mormon posthumously. Imagine finding out one day that your dead Father or Uncle were pulled into the Mormon church by some zealot who baptized their name? Why do you think Mormons run the genealogy racket in this country, collecting all baptismal, marriage, and death records for ALL religions?

      • Scott

        Get your facts straight. Women are taught none of the above. You're spreading propaganda.

        Polygamy is grounds for excommunication from the Church, and has been for over 100 years. Join the rest of the 21st century, friend.

        Wearing of the garment is a reminder of covenants made with God. Mock those who wear crosses, yarmulkas, etc. if you're going to mock this practice.

        Latter-day Saints do not “adopt” the dead. They do perform posthumous ordinances such as baptism for the dead, with the belief that it's a required physical ordinance. Those dead who would choose to accept those ordinances have the chance to do so. Those who would choose not to also have that choice. No one is “pulled into” the Church, but all are given the chance to accept or reject it. It's also Church policy that only family members submit names for their own relatives to have ordinance work done. So if people are being “pulled into” the Church after death, it's by members of their own extended families.

        Get some education before pretending to know something.

        • lisaloo

          Baptizing the dead? Where is that in the King James version of the Bible?

        • the wonderer

          “It's also Church policy that only family members submit names for their own relatives to have ordinance work done.” not so! there are many cases where names have been submitted for posthumous ordinances such as baptism for the dead that are NOT submitted by family members and are nevertheless accepted and performed… i know of such cases, and those names were submitted inspired by prayer…

          as far as most comments here, and as a former mormon myself, i just suggest people get a grip and make a clear difference between what is church doctrine and belief and what is private stand, etc… people are people and different from each other, and mormons are no different… there are lots of misunderstandings as far as mormons are concerned, as is the case with muslims, catholics, etc., etc., etc. not mixing doctrine, dogma, personal beliefs, deviations due to misunderstandings, is important.

          the most important of all, however, is to live and let live. i am no longer a practicing mormon but have no ax to grind (i joined the church by choice, and maybe being a convert and not having to put with external pressure makes a difference), but i am happy to count among my relations and friends people from far more creeds and races than i would care to list here, and i cannot recall, over the 10 years i went to church, EVER seeing an individual or couple being turned away because they were black, asian, caucasian, or their marriages were mixed… however, i have met many people who behaved worse than red necks or kkk, and could find no place in their hearts to accept many of their fellow humans, brethren, etc. but this is not a mormon trait… it's human condition…

          and btw, i cannot see the cartoon as youtube (must be a link pulled from youtube) does not work where i live… so, will not comment on that… my comment is only on the tone of most postings here…

      your average mormon (recovered mormon here) has no concept of the depth of writings and doctrine embraced by their church they just believe blindly that whatever their prophet says is what is. Everything in this cartoon is taken straight from church doctrine.

      • Angela

        Define typical. Were you one of those “typical' Mormons who have no idea what their religion is about? If so, how is it you have any concept what Mormons believe? See, the sad thing is, most ex-Mormons are never very religious to begin with. When they decide to stop going to church, they go looking for reasons to justify their choice. So they read more anti-Mormon literature than any Mormon literature they've read in their life. And then they think they know the (shh) deep doctrines. Which is really just hate literature by anti-Mormons.

  • Angela

    Mike, Mike. Tsk. Do you think maybe your bitterness against your family is coloring your own opinion just a bit? As Utahson said, this video doesn't spark questions in a Mormon's mind, just amusement. Another saying you may be familiar with? Satan mixes truth and lies to bring about his own ends. Bits of it are true (like Joseph Smith is considered to be a prophet, and the Lamanites destroyed the Nephites), but not most of it (Mormon's have their own Jesus? Huh? And God had celestial sex with millions of wives? What is that about? LOL). I'm Mormon, but I have made it a personal goal to learn about other religions as well. I have yet to be thrown out of the church for asking questions or attending other churches. If people want to know what Mormon's really believe, they can find everything at lds.org.

  • bivouac

    See, whether you are pro- or anti- mormon, ex mormon, whatever, it should be pretty obvious this cartoon was created by non-mormons to make the lds church look bad. There are plenty of clues to this, including the fact that the video repeatedly says “the mormon's believe that… ” instead of “we believe that…”, and the fact that they refer to Joseph Smith as a fraud. Since it's presented as a mormon produced video when it is not, its content and veracity can't really be trusted. That said, even if it was absolutely 100% true, don't you think *any* religion would look just as bad if presented like this by someone against that church? It definitely, definitely would. So, let's stop bashing the mormons… and bash every religion instead!

  • robjphil

    I think I may be the only active Mormon here who has watched this and doesn't think that it's a load of crap. Maybe it's because I'm a convert and a geek who likes to read a lot, but I came across most of this stuff when I was thinking about joining the church. Most of it i.e. Adam-God doctrine, polygamy, Blacks and the pre-existence/priesthood, Christ's conception etc. are all pretty easily found in the discourses of Brigham Young The funny thing is that these teachings (the nature of god and man, our eternal role as families etc.) are what drew me to the church in the first place (with the exception of the whole blacks thing, that was just Brigham Young being a racist). Most mainstream Mormons who were raised in the church were never taught about this stuff, and sadly but truly most of them don't really care to look beyond the standard works of the church.

    It's obvious that the creators of this cartoon meant for these teachings and doctrines to sound spooky but if you take away the bad animation and the creepy voice and really think about what these ideas mean it's not really that unbelievable. …or maybe it is and I'm just weird but it makes more sense to me than believing that all of the universe and the evolution of everything on this planet including ourselves are all just random. So is the idea that there is one god who is perfect and always has been and we will never ever be able to come close to understanding what he has done let alone learn to follow in his footsteps and do it too. But hey who am I to judge what others believe right?

  • thecursedone

    I find if ironic that all the Mormons who are commenting regarding this video are claiming it to be false,just as their historical racist and sexist beliefs. I was raised in Salt Lake City,Utah and was at one time considering becoming a member of the LDS church until I was given the facts and hidden history of the cult by a ex-Mormon whose family roots go back to the founding, or rather inventing of the religion.”
    Everything in this video is easily found in Mormon literature,even though Mormon leaders have relentlessly tried to deny and hide these facts by changing their book” The book of Mormon.”
    Even the policy regarding the Mormon's cursing of dark skin races can be easily found in the writings and lectures of past LDS “profits” {sic} Calling the civil rights movement of the sixties a communist plot to destroy and corrupt the White power structure.

  • thecursedone

    If anyone is willing to do even the most basic research into the LDS's history one will find sooooooooo many contradictions and outright lies that it makes the cult look shamefully ridiculous.
    Mormons claim Jesus a White man from America, and the only White skin people are pure and worthy of God's blessings. Another odd fact is that their is NO physical archeological proof to support the claims the LDS church has made regarding its biblical roots. Most mainstream Christian religions see Mormons as noting more than a for profit cult,with no legitimate ties to contemporary Christian beliefs.

    As a former Mormon, I have to stand behind Mike on this one. Most of the churches I attended back in the 70s and 80s did not have a problem with discussing these issues. Before I was asked to leave the LDS for asking too many probing questions, I was even handed written materials discussing some of what this cartoon discusses. The war in heaven story has no basis in the Bible and I found that very confusing. Most of the evidences I was given were solely Mormon in origin and I found that interesting due to the fact that the Bible had tons of external evidences, witnesses and manuscripts to scrutinize. In fact, after I was asked to leave, the lone gentleman who stood up for me privately visited me and broke down into tears. He really felt that all my questions would be answered and was humiliated by the leadership’s hostility. He admitted that my questions were too difficult for him to answer but was stunned to see the reaction of the very same people he suggested I approach for insight. Even my family who are Mormons could not answer my questions and have ostracized me. But it doesn’t bother me. I know now why they can’t answer my questions and have studied theology long enough to realize that they or the LDS never will.

    Many clues that this was not a Mormon production. The unanswered question is, who made it?

  • amoebic_dissenter

    Better information on the “Godmakers” animation:
    New Age anti-Mormons have generated considerably more controversy than the previous category. The most prominent of their number, Ed Decker, is the producer of The God Makers and The God Makers II, as well as being the author of the books by the same name. The God Makers has attracted criticism not only from Latter-day Saints,[1] but even from traditional anti-Mormons.[2] The film is generally considered acerbic and misleading, and has even provoked bomb threats against LDS meetinghouses and death threats against members.[3] In other publications Decker has asserted that the source of Mormonism is Satan and that the spires on the LDS temple “represent an upside down nail, pointing defiantly toward heaven–as if to impale the Lord Jesus anew when he comes in the clouds of glory!”[4] Furthermore, Decker sees Mormonism as a Satanic political conspiracy with roots in Hinduism and Baal worship.[5]

    When Decker was denounced by Jerald and Sandra Tanner, he went so far as to accuse them of being in the pay of the LDS Church and even of being “demonized” themselves. Decker and his associates offered to exorcise the Tanners’ demons, and expressed great sadness when they refused.[6]

    Better information on the “Godmakers” animation:
    New Age anti-Mormons have generated considerably more controversy than the previous category. The most prominent of their number, Ed Decker, is the producer of The God Makers and The God Makers II, as well as being the author of the books by the same name. The God Makers has attracted criticism not only from Latter-day Saints,[1] but even from traditional anti-Mormons.[2] The film is generally considered acerbic and misleading, and has even provoked bomb threats against LDS meetinghouses and death threats against members.[3] In other publications Decker has asserted that the source of Mormonism is Satan and that the spires on the LDS temple “represent an upside down nail, pointing defiantly toward heaven–as if to impale the Lord Jesus anew when he comes in the clouds of glory!”[4] Furthermore, Decker sees Mormonism as a Satanic political conspiracy with roots in Hinduism and Baal worship.[5]

    When Decker was denounced by Jerald and Sandra Tanner, he went so far as to accuse them of being in the pay of the LDS Church and even of being “demonized” themselves. Decker and his associates offered to exorcise the Tanners' demons, and expressed great sadness when they refused.[6]

    I’m not mormon and what little I know about their church leads me to beleive it’s silly but this cartoon was not put out by the mormon church, that’s just not factual. Just google this like I did when I came across it on youtube and you’ll discover it was put out by mormon opponents. I don’t really care either way, but I hate seeing false info being spread. The cartoon may be acurate, I don’t know since I don’t really know much about the mormon religion, but it wasn’t put out by them.
