If not Mormon, are they now Less-Mon?
I can understand the call by President Nelson for his denomination to use the name given to it by its founder, "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints", rather than the appellation "Mormon" that has become widespread. The latter has taken on a certain negativity, particularly in liberal political circles, and the longer, more neutral original name of the church will hopefully get away from that.
I can't help poking fun at my many LDS friends, though. If they're not Mormons any more, should they now be considered Less-Mons?
