Okay, I'll admit that I don't know as much about Mormon beliefs as I should. But I came across this on another site (another Q&A site actually) and would like to know how much of these are true and how much of them aren't even relevant...
Here is why we (Christians) don't like Mormon doctrine:
Errors in Mormon doctrine are as follow -
1.God was once a man like us.
2.God has a tangible body of flesh and bone.
3.God lives on a planet near the star Kolob.
4.God ("Heavenly Father") has at least one wife, our "Mother in Heaven," but she is so holy that we are not to discuss her nor pray to her.
5.Jesus was married.
6.We can become like God and rule over our own universe.
7.There are many gods, ruling over their own worlds.
8.Jesus and Satan ("Lucifer") are brothers, and they are our brothers - we are all spirit children of Heavenly Father
9.Jesus Christ was conceived by God the Father by having sex with Mary, who was temporarily his wife.
10.We should not pray to Jesus, nor try to feel a personal relationship with him.
11.The "Lord" ("Jehovah") in the Old Testament is the being named Jesus in the New Testament, but different from "God the Father" ("Elohim").
12.In the highest degree of the celestial kingdom some men will have more than one wife.
13.Before coming to this earth we lived as spirits in a "pre-existence", during which we were tested; our position in this life (whether born to Mormons or savages, or in America or Africa) is our reward or punishment for our obedience in that life.
14.Dark skin is a curse from God, the result of our sin, or the sin of our ancestors. If sufficiently righteous, a dark-skinned person will become light-skinned.
15.The Garden of Eden was in Missouri. All humanity before the Great Flood lived in the western hemisphere. The Ark transported Noah and the other survivors to the eastern hemisphere.
16.Not only will human beings be resurrected to eternal life, but also all animals - everything that has ever lived on earth - will be resurrected and dwell in heaven.
17.Christ will not return to earth in any year that has seen a rainbow.
18.Mormons should avoid traveling on water, since Satan rules the waters.
19.The sun receives its light from the star Kolob.
20.If a Gentile becomes Mormon, the Holy Ghost actually purges his Gentile blood and replaces it with Israelite blood.
21.A righteous Mormon will actually see the face of God in the Mormon temple.
22.You can identify a false angel by the color of his hair, or by offering to shake his hand.
23. Native Americans descended from the tribe of Ephraim.

Lets just live & let live & stop picking on each others beliefs. What is the point anyway? It just creates more hatred in the world.
