No, it's not. Mormons deny the doctrine of the trinity [1], they profess that there are sins the blood of Christ is incapable of paying for [2], they deny the existence of hell [3], and they deny the eternity and uniqueness of the Judeo-Christian God [4]. These are all basic tenets that have been fundamental to defining "what is a Christian?" ever since the question was first asked in the first couple centuries A.D. No Christian church accepts the unique doctrines that Mormonism teaches [5] [6].

Just as it is incorrect for non-Hindus to say, "This is the authoritative word on what is and what is not Hinduism," (or non-Muslims for Islam, or non-Atheists for Atheism, or what have you), it is incorrect for non-Christians to say, "This doctrine over here is Christian!"

+ - UK government bitten by own data laws->

Anonymous Coward writes "The largest government data fiasco in UK history has taken an ironic, "biter bit" twist. The Information Commissioner's Office, which feebly enforces data protection in Britain, has said that the UK government may be in breach of its own laws. The ICO said the government is 'bang to rights'. From the article: "This is the biggest privacy disaster by our government," said Jonathan Bamford, assistant information commissioner. "There is no doubt that [chancellor of the exchequer] Alistair Darling and others will have to deal with the fact there are legally enforceable [privacy] standards. In Britain we have the phrase 'bang to rights'. Someone is bang to rights over that breach. Clearly on the facts available there appears to be a major contravention of data-protection laws.""
