Pastor speaks out about Idaho billboards targeting Mormons

One of the organizers of a media campaign that is using billboards in Pocatello and other cities seeking to convince Mormons of perceived errors in their faith says the group is not attacking members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“The reason we do this is that we really do have a love for the Mormon people,” says Mark Cares, president of the group that is organizing the campaign. “Our ministry is to reach out to the LDS people.”

He says while the campaign does question LDS doctrine, it is not meant to attack Mormons. LDS members see the campaign differently.

“We’re used to it. It happens a lot,” Roger Porter, an LDS spokesman for the Southeast Idaho area, says about anti-LDS campaigns. “It’s too bad it happens in the name of Christianity.”
