Did the saints and others travel West on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Trail?

Is "Mormon Point" in Death Valley going to be changed to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Point?

How about "Mormon Bridge" in Nebraska & Iowa?

Mormon Mountains, Mormon Peak and East Mormon Mountains in Nevada?

How about Mormon Pioneer National Heratige Area in Utah?

Will MFMC pay for all the new signs required? Maybe pay for the new brochures to be printed? Or all the maps to be re-done?

It really is one of the dumbest ideas anyone ever came up with.

I couldn’t believe it. I think Russ has been the dumbest prophet in church history.

He's the country club president of LDS Inc. seems kind of like Judge Smails from Caddy Shack.

If God is all knowing and in charge.

I am sure God would have said, don't say Mormon from day one!

Remember, this is the same guy who let joey & Co go with two or three other names before finally giving them the Real One.

and then let the outfit change it with a hyphen and lower case "d" decades later.

Not even Jesus seems to be able to get it right?

I think the next prophet will quietly reinstall the name, "Mormon." And the membership will claim that it was always thus.

All the problems in the world and the thing the prophet of the lords true and living church on the face of the earth tries to solve is calling the church "Mormon"?

Mormon Row was a group of historic cabins just outside of Jackson Hole, Wyoming settled by pioneers. There are signs everywhere and they promote it as a tourist destination.

Another favorite is Mormon Road, a small road just outside of Whitehall, Montana. I often wonder if they banished the Mormons to live outside of town. That would be quite an insult if you've ever spent time in Whitehall.

We've got a Mormon Road right here in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. I'll let TDOT know that all the signs need replacing.

You left out the most obvious impediment to getting rid of the Victory for Satan,
the Book of Mormon

That is the precise reason they are attempting to abandon the word “Mormon”. They can’t ditch the book (because of its inherent racism) unless they ditch the name first.

They have already cancelled all church pageants that have to do with the BoM. Rumor has it that when the renovation is finished on the SL Temple, that Moroni is not going back on top. Jesus will get the catbird seat.

However godawful the name change is, I really don’t think they can go back. The racism is too blatant in the BoM. It has to go at some point.

Thank’s to Broadway The Book of Mormon is impossible to erase. That play was way to popular.

That is precisely why the church is trying to de-emphasize the Mormon title: it wants the public not to recognize, immediately, that the LDS are the same ones who venerate the BoM.

That new Red Cliffs temple (Now open for public tours!) in St.George UT has Moroni tooting his horn at the top of the spire.

What's up with that? I thought Russ fired Moroni and promoted Lutheran Christus as the new symbol.

That darned Moroni is just too proud of his spire.

Moroni knows how to play the trumpet. Very important...

Most of the year Mormon Lake in Arizona is swampy and shallow lacking any real depth.
Fitting name actually.

they still use 'Mormon' online, as in request a visit from Mormon Missionaries.

If Mormons 'LDSs' paid attention to setting better examples of Kindness, Honesty, Empathy, real charity (not just for Mormons-from Mormons) even just simple courtesy... they'd have much better rep/cred, that's for sure!

Don't forget, TSCC rides on the bare back of the book of MORMON. They can't take that back. It's too bare.

Mormons love their romance
More like a fantasy... (for only a fan-to-see)
Maybe a bromance: book of boring romance

The 'church' was founded on it
And it'll be found dead on it

Mormonism is dead
That's what I read

Nelson's hyperbole on “victory for Satan” is extreme. It would imply that both Gordon B. Hinckley and Thomas S. Monson were leading "victories for Satan" with use of tithing funds for the “I am Mormon” campaigns and the decades of usage of the term Mormon.

His Ego?
Don't forget..., he is a surgeon. God complex, anyone?

The problem is they watered it all down by losing their brand, when anyone in advertising knows that you just up the game with "Mormonism--Now in Extra Strength!" "Mormonism, Now with more added Christ!" Look for the new package today! But for heavens sake, don't ask your doctor if it's right for you!

Akin to big bold letters on a cereal box saying "New and Improved" or "Family Size", but once you open the box you find it half empty and the recipe changed from what it once was.
