Thought of the Day about Mormonism; Are You Kidding Me?

On the LDS Church’s Newsroom website I came across the following message and had to wonder why…

“Following the election of Pope Benedict XVI, the First Presidency issued the following statement:

“We join with men and women of goodwill everywhere in congratulating Cardinal Ratzinger on his election as Pope Benedict XVI.



“We wish for him and his many followers continuing progress in furthering the cause of peace among the nations, and the alleviation of poverty and distress throughout the world.””

First of all they consider the Catholic Church to be the whore of Babylon – 1 Nephi 14:10. Secondly, I just can’t imagine my pastor sending the Pope a congratulatory note. Would your pastor do this?
