President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: stop saying "Mormon" or "LDS Church"

Russell M. Nelson, the president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, issued a stern warning Sunday to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that under no circumstances was the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be known or described as anything but The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Other names for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are literally a victory of evil over The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The church’s name “is not negotiable,” he said. “When the savior clearly states what the name of his church should be, and even precedes his declaration with, ‘Thus shall my church be called,' he is serious. And if we allow nicknames to be used and adopt or even sponsor those nicknames ourselves, he is offended.”

Using common nicknames such as “Mormon church,” “LDS Church” or the “Church of the Latter-day Saints,” Nelson said, “ ... is a major victory for Satan.”
