If you find the Book of Mormon a hard read and difficult to use for finding out about the Mormon Church, why not pick up a copy of Mormonism for Dummies?
The book sums of the Church’s history in six pages and approaches issues such as “blacks [and] the priesthood,…roles of women, birth control, homosexuality, and involvement in politics.”
On page 16, I came across this statement: Some Mormons joke that LDS really stands for “Let?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s drink Sprite,” in reference to many Mormons’ decision to keep away from cola. Now I have lived in three provinces and served my mission in Utah, Arizona and Nevada. I never once heard anyone say “LDS” stands for “Let’s Drink Sprite”. Has anyone heard of this usage?
