    I noticed many anti-LDS threads are being frequently featured. And there seem to be an agreement to team on them and criticize their beliefs heavily. I also don't like how there are not enough forums for Mormons and how they are perceived as non-Christians by some.

    I have 2 Mormon friends and both of them are devout Christians. They didn't call themselves "non-Christians" so who are we to marginalize them and call them as such?

    And honestly, one of the most inspirational friends and a powerful Christian role model to me was and IS an LDS.

    I mean c'mon! No one said that you should agree with the LDS teachings to call them Christians! They believe in Christ and they believe he is God!

    Can we stop marginalizing the LDS members please? Thank you.

    And please don't reply with any sort of "justification" to such behavior against them. I'm interested in a fair environment for everyone!

    I second this motion and argue that our Muslim Brothers and Sisters should be given the same consideration.

    What you are posting right now is actually against CF's rules and could get you into trouble. See here: CF's Rules in Regards to the LDS Church

    As it says at the link, if you want to discuss this with the people who run this place, you need to open a support ticket. (Not a thread.)

    You can throw that argument at any Christian denomination. It just doesn't work that way. Muslims don't follow the Bible as their primary source of divine teachings and they don't call themselves Christians.

    I'm sick and tired of our Atheist and Deist Brothers and Sisters being treated like second-class forum members. They should have just as many rights as we Christians do, but they are oppressed every day while we pretend we are going to Heaven. This must stop.

    Yennora,

    The forum has its rules, and the members are free to post topics for discussion. You might try weighing in to defend the beliefs of the Mormons if you disagree with any of these topics or even report posts if they include flames, etc. The fact is that there are no more threads aimed against some Mormon practice or belief than there are ones critical of other denominations or political causes.

    The reason I remained in CF in the first place was its openness towards everyone!

    It is open to everyone. Mormons can post, argue, report posts for flaming, etc. same as anyone. What they can't do -- and what you can't do, and what none of us can do regardless of how we may feel, as per the rules that I've already linked to -- is claim that Mormons are Christians. CF doesn't allow that, and doing so can get you into trouble.

    I'd suggest editing your OP considerably.

    Thread Closed Permanently--It's a public complaint about CF policy.
    Faith groups and individuals that deny the full, eternal deity of Jesus Christ or His incarnation whereby He, as God, took on human flesh (becoming fully God and fully man in one person), are considered non-Christians at CF.
    CF's Rules in Regards to the LDS Church
    Any member that states or argues that Mormons are Christians, or Mormon members that claim to be Christians, may have their post(s) removed and may be subject to a staff action. If you would like to discuss this with the CF Admins or Advisors, please open a support ticket.
