Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the way I understand it is LDS do not physically practice polygamy but the husband can be sealed to multiple "wives" (for lack of a better word) for the afterlife to get to the top level of heaven.

And FLDS do physically practice polygamy.


again, this is the way I understand it and if I am wrong I do apologize.

LDS is the nick name for "The Church of Jesus Christ of Later day Saint's" The original church all others RLDS ,FLDS are church's that broke away from the original because they couldn't live UP to the originals teachings. The LDS are a very large and strong family oriented church,very much like Christians. The FLDS on the other hand are a soul sucking cult. They keep their members away from the rest of the world. (even Amish don't do that) and marry young girls as much as 12 years old to men in their 40's . These men have so many wives their are not enough young women for the young men,so they routinely force the young men to leave. The woman are only baby factories ,and have ZERO say in anything that go's on.

I don't know much about the FLDS other than the polygamy thing.  LDS = The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also nicknamed Mormon).  Mormon.org and LDS.org are good resources for information on the LDS church.

The RLDS is the Reorganized Church Of The Latterday Saints . They broke off from the church right after Joseph Smith was murdered by a mob in Missouri. Joseph Smith was the first prophet of the church. He translated the Golden Plates. Which are whats called The Book Of Mormon. They left the church with Emma Smith her son by Joesph and his brothers,because they thought the the head of the church should be a direct descendent of Smith ,like a king. Instead of being a prophet called by God. They wouldn't accept Brigham Young as the newly called Prophet. They also don't follow any of the original teachings, No word of wisdom , no temple marriage,or temple garments. Pretty much just a protestant church.

Dh was raised LDS. I was raised Christian. The two religions are not alike.
