An observation I've made over the years is that Mormons want to be called 'LDS'. They don't like being called 'Mormons'. The funny thing is that most of the world doesn't know what they're talking about when someone says LDS. I remember a time in high school when a Mormon friend was asked by a non-Mormon what the heck did LDS mean? Little dick syndrome? Oh man that had me in stitches. They act almost offended if they are called Mormons....yet they have to use that word for the outside world to know who they are.
Does anyone have any insight on this? Why do they insist on being called LDS and not Mormon? Aren't they synonymous? Weren't they called Mormons in the early church years? What is this all about??
