Religiously correct language

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (known as “Mormons”) may disagree with mainstream Christianity on such fundamental issues as the nature and identity of God, the means of salvation, the nature of marriage, and the extent of the scriptural canon, and they may follow “prophets” whom most Christians would consider false — but they still believe in Jesus Christ and the Bible, and their church even has “Jesus Christ” in its name. They are, therefore, clearly Christians — and to say otherwise is a hateful anti-Mormon slander.

Members of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (known as “Mormon fundamentalists”) may believe in Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon, and their church may even have “Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” in its name — but they still disagree with mainstream Mormonism on such fundamental issues as the nature and identity of God, the means of salvation, the nature of marriage, and the extent of the scriptural canon, and they follow “prophets” whom most Mormons would consider false. They are, therefore, clearly not Mormons — and to say otherwise is a hateful anti-Mormon slander.

Got it?
