Anti-Mormon protesters at the
October 2004 LDS General Conference
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has attracted critics from its earliest days. These pictures provide a small glimpse at the efforts of some critics of the Church. These pictures were taken by Allen Wyatt, October 2-3, 2004, in Salt Lake City, during an LDS General Conference. Protesters positioned themselves throughout downtown Salt Lake City. Many were congregated near the entrances to Temple Square, and many on the sidewalks surrounding the Conference Center. Some even took up positions near Trax (light rail) stations, hoping to spread their message to those taking public transportation to Conference.
Under each picture you will find some comments by the photographer, as well as some links that provide additional information that explain the sensationalistic claims of the protesters.
We allow all people to worship who, where, or what they may–and trust the reader can determine if picketing during worship services is Christian behavior.
Some are shocked when they hear claims that the LDS
believe Jesus and Lucifer (Satan) are brothers.
Do the LDS believe that Jesus and Lucifer are brothers?
This group of protestors decided to do their preaching from the
bed of a pickup truck parked near the Conference Center. The
gentleman shouting from the back of the truck was proclaiming
the inerrrancy and completeness of the Bible.
What are the LDS views on the Bible?
Some critics contend that the LDS teach “another gospel,”
and they should therefore be ignored.
Do the LDS teach “another gospel?”
Some critics believe that the LDS somehow don’t
follow the “God of the Bible.”
