Conference for Mormon Scholarship Begins Tomorrow

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A conference for Mormons who want to defend their faith from critics begins tomorrow in Sandy.

The Mormon Church

Mormon beliefs are based on a mixture of fiction, fantasy and plagiarism

Given that the theology and practice of the Mormon Church violates essential Christian doctrines, Mormonism does not represent historical, Biblical Christianity, is not a Christian denomination, and is not in any way part of the Christian church.

This is the sixth conference of the Foundation for Apologetic Information & Research, also known as FAIR.

Participants in the two-day conference can hear presentations on every touchy issue the L-D-S Church faces, including the banning of black men from the faith’s all-male priesthood until 1978, the role of women in the church, homosexuality and same-sex marriage, and problems new D-N-A evidence poses for the Book of Mormon‘s historicity.

FAIR is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing well-documented answers to criticisms of Mormon doctrine, belief and practice. The group has no official connection to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but its members are all Mormons.

The conference will be held at South Towne Center in Sandy.
