Sorry, I disagree.
Your message equates to any evangelization being a hate crime. Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and indeed anybody else would have an equal right to be offended by a polite Christian calling on them.
After all, Christ said, “Nobody comes to the Father except thru me,” which means all other religions are false, if you take him at his word.
I’m not a Mormon, but I find it really weird for somebody to believe that a Mormon’s beliefs are a personal attack. On this issue, I’m with T. Jefferson. Another man’s beliefs neither pick my pocket nor break my leg.
I hope you realize that until quite recently historically most “Christian” churches had similar attitudes towards other “Christian” churches. Hang around some of the Protestant v. Catholic threads and you’ll see a lot of that attitude is still around.
Probably because of this:
1 Nephi 14:10 (Book of Mormon)
And he said unto me: Behold there are save two churches only; the one is the church of the Lamb of God, and the
other is the church of the devil; wherefore, whoso belongeth not to the church of the Lamb of God belongeth to that great
church, which is the mother of abominations; and she is the whore of all the earth.
Louis Midgley, Review of Books on the Book of Mormon, p.11
The membership of the Mormon church, Smith writes, is taught not to question the mysteries: When the Prophet speaks,the thinking has been done.

In all these affidavits, indictments, it is all of the devilall corruption. Come on! ye prosecutors! ye false swearers! All hell, boil over! Ye burning mountains, roll down your lava! for I will come out on the top at last. I have more to boast of than ever any man had. I am the only man that has ever been able to keep a whole church together since the days of Adam. A large majority of the whole have stood by me. Neither Paul, John, Peter, nor Jesus ever did it. I boast that no man ever did such a work as I. The followers of Jesus ran away from Him; but the Latter-day Saints never ran away from me yet.

Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.
“Your message equates to any evangelization being a hate crime. Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and indeed anybody else would have an equal right to be offended by a polite Christian calling on them.”
I’m going to take this rare parting in the mists of history to point out we agree on this. It doesn’t matter to me personally, whether someone believes exactly as I do. Like Paul, I surely wish they did, minus the chains, for their own sake. I am not offended personally at all.
In the end, they have personal responsibility and freedom for their own life and choices. I don’t wish to take away the freedom or responibility God gave them.
I’m just a signpost on the way, a friend, or the loving Hand of Christ. Sometimes I get to “put a pebble in their shoe” that continues to feel uncomfortable every time they think about it.
Still, they alone decide the response before God. While I may feel sorrow for their choice, it is their call.
After all, Christ said, Nobody comes to the Father except thru me, which means all other religions are false, if you take him at his word.
So, do you take Him at His word? This is, according to the site owner, a Pro-Christian site: "
My position stands. "The so-called book of Mormon is false gospel, ie, fiction. It has nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity or the Word of God.
Look up false prophets in KJV.
Must be a flaw (among many flaws) in my up-bringing."
