Does the Catholic Church recognize the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a religion? I thought the Church referred to the Mormon church as a cult.
Answer by Catholic Answers on 1/29/2008:
So far as I am aware, the Catholic Church does not consider the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (aka, the Mormon church) to be a cult. The Church considers the Mormon church to be a non-Christian religion because it does not recognize Mormon baptism to be a valid Christian baptism.
