After hearing how that religion got started I can't say I really respect its right to be here. (I don't really respect any religion based on that same principal.)

The (potentially) redeeming feature of the LDS is the ability of the church to get updates from heaven from time to time.

The Roman Catholic Church gets infallible ex cathedra clarifications of doctrine every once in a while.

But the Pope is not called a "prophet", and the pronouncements are not called "revelations", ergo not foul heretics like the Mormons. :pr:

In their favour, they do run a pretty good genealogy database and don't charge for its use. That's got to be a brownie point or two.
