Best Spanish Pro-LDS Websites? Dealing with MormonCult.org and Its Resources for Spanish Speakers

Someone asked me a question about Spanish resources being offered on the ever-dangerous MormonCult.org website. It has a resources page (I would be crazy to give you the URL) with some Spanish articles and links. Since I'm not very familiar with the Spanish-side of LDS religion, can you suggest to me your favorite LDS resources (PRO-LDS, that is) that I can share with others to fight misinformation on the web?

MormonCult.org tends to be the #1 search result when you Google "Mormon cult" and is #4 or 5 for "Culta de los Mormones". That's unacceptable. With your help, we can do something about that and bring down those Spanish placement numbers. #4 or 5 is way too high for such a pathetic site.

Jared T. has started posting dual language posts on Juvenile Instructor, but that's just the barest beginning. I hope your readers know of a whole lot more.

I've been blogging in Spanish for several years now at http://www.allaboutmormons.com/SPAN_index.php , but I wouldn't pretend for a minute to be capable of refuting the brilliant exposé that is MormonCult.org. That site convinced even me that Mormonism is a cult. :) Suffice it to say, I am a very happy cult member. :)

Couldn't someone simply take the time to translate Jeff Lindsay's LDSFAQ website into Spanish?

I think its the best website in refuting claims against the LDS Church...

And I'm afraid www.mormoncult.NET is of the same ilk. [shakes head]

mormoncult.org has to be the stupidest site I've ever seen. The 'about the author' page is hilarious but I can see how it would be a damaging thing for people that don't know a lot about the church to see. What I don't get is when people critizice the LDS church as being cultish and then worship in a different church that often has the exact same types of things. It's like the pot calling the kettle black. If you wanted to you could call any orgainzation that has strict rules for membership a 'cult'. Lol.

Tony said...

I don't see how it would be damaging if they actually read through it, Matthew. lol
