Mormon missionaries desecrate statue at Catholic shrine

Before reading this, ask your self "Have I ever sinned?". That being said, did you receive forgiveness? I'm not saying, lets let the boys off scott free. But people do do stupid things some times, Lord knows I have my fair share of them in my closet.

DENVER (CNA) - Photos of three Mormon missionaries mocking the Catholic Church, which recently surfaced on the Internet, have upset Catholics and shocked Mormon leaders, reports the Denver Post.

The men have also been accused of breaking the head off of a statue of saint at the Shrine of the Mexican Martyrs in San Luis, Colorado.

In 2006, three missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) visited a Catholic shrine in the San Luis Valley in Colorado. While at the shrine, the Mormon missionaries photographed themselves in poses that demeaned the Catholic Church.

The pictures, which were posted last week on the photo-sharing site Photobucket, show the men preaching from the Book of Mormon behind the altar; holding the head from a statue of St. Manuel Morales, a young Mexican who died opposing anti-religious laws; and one of the missionaries pretending to sacrifice a fellow missionary on the altar.

These young men have been disciplined by their church...the Catholic Church asked that the charges against them be dropped, which they were.

Praying that these young LDS men will come to realize that they belong in the Catholic Church.
