They have a right to establish their own rules of ceremony within the church.

No one said they didn't.

It's just merely been pointed out how UN-christian the MORMONs are.

Is there a law against THAT?

There is nothing unchristian about a church having it's own marriage policies. So by that reasoning denying communion to a non member or worse one who has not met the requirements stated for such by Christ would be unchristian even though many main stream churches have such policy?

What about a church where women must sit on one side and men the other? What if I want to sit with my wife? Certain Baptist have that rule.

Oh and BTW my wife told me about a school field trip she took as a kid. They were allowed to enter only certain parts of the Temple as long as no services were taking place and no others were present. No it wasn't a Mormon Temple either LOL.

She also for first grade attended a Catholic School. For her to enter the church with the rest of the class every morning where Mass was held she had to cover her head. If she did something wrong in class she had to light a candle and stand before the class and apologize. Nope she wasn't Catholic but the school was ran by the Catholic church.

I have known and interacted with many Mormons in my lifetime from school teachers to my cousin who married into the church after being raised Baptist. We worship the same LORD and Savior. The love of Christ dwells in them. I have also interacted with some Christians so self righteous and legalistic they condemn all views outside their specific denomination as work of the devil.

Watch to whom a Christian gives the glory and watch the fruits of their labors by that you will know them. I can think of a lot of churches I radically disagree with. These are ones attacking such things as prayer in school etc where ones doing so are often members of United Church of Christ. One example is the Director of Americans for Separation of Church and State. Rev Lynn I think is the name the other a friend and former preacher of Obama.

The Mormons as in LDS are not my enemy. I can find a lot I disagree with talking to Catholics, Baptist, Methodist, etc but I understand whom they serve.

One Mormon I know has had nothing short of a medical miracle. He gives Jesus Christ the glory for that and all things in his life and that should be enough proof.
