Quite so as any disagreement or exposure of LDS history and doctrine is called an attack by the LDS leadership. How many LDS posters are willing to explain what they are actually taught about Adam, who and what he was and what supports their view?
I don't think newer members are taught about Adam. When I left the church 10 years ago many early teachings (that were openly discussed in classes when I first joined the church) were being hushed up.
It was about the same time we were told to ditch old RS manuals and other materials.
Reading through the Romney threads I saw many LDS posting and I truly believe they have no knowledge of early teachings. Everything is sugar coated now.
Being good and faithful LDS they are NOT going to do actual research because 'heaven forbid' they might end up at an 'anti mormon' site.

I am not a former Mormon. My interest is in pointing out that the LDS teachings pretend to be Biblical but instead contradict Scripture. And I am surprised when I come across someone who doesn't know what the organization he belongs to professes but maybe I'm odd.
For the most part I'm not interested in anti-Mormon sites as anyone can make accusations and claims, beside those sites operated by and with the approval of Mormons provide enough material to reveal their un-Christian beliefs.
I think this exposure can and should be done without the ridicule or nasty heckling that some posters might think cute.
Would I be overly bold to ask why you left the LDS church?
Don't often get to ask, you see.
