Explanation and Disclaimer: Worst of the Anti-Mormon Web asks the question: How come Loftes Tryk is not on the web? Well, now it turns out that Loftes is on the web. Oh well.

If you are humor-impaired, leave immediately. This is not for the faint-of-heart, the thin-skinned, or especially humorless anti-Mormons. If you are a humorless anti-Mormon, this site is intended to mock you—I am laughing at you.

Worst of the Anti-Mormon Web appears occassionally—that is, whenever I feel like it. Anything regular was just a bit too much work and hence simply does not agree with my fundamental constitution.

Confused by what you see? Did you think that this site would be 1) full of anti-Mormon stuff beating up on helpless Mormons or 2) full of Latter-day Saint stuff beating up on antis? Be sure to read the Infrequently Asked Questions. And please be sure to read it before you blast some email my way. I know reading is tough and the web does nothing to encourage attention spans, but I am confident that everyone who can handle a browser can read and understand this short file. (For those who want to object to this outrageous claim, I can only counter that there is no real evidence that Ed Decker or John L. Smith surf the web.)

I will be only too glad to post your note here [defunct].

Worst of the
Anti-Mormon Web

The inimitable Kristi is at it again. Further demonstrating her remarkable reasoning powers, she has now constructed a website to pick on poor Dan Peterson and your humble correspondent.

  • Kristi's The Anti-Novak & Peterson Page. Whatever you do, never forget that Kristi is not anti-Mormon. That would be bad manners on your part. And stop thinking about irony. I know you are thinking about irony.

  • Daniel Peterson: Psychopathic, Obsessed Troll. Ah, the charm, the grace, the refined argumentation. Everything on this page screams culture and breeding.

  • I don't want to brag, but Dan rated but one page in Kristi's demonology. Here is Page ONE: Novak: Rude, Hateful, Bitter Troll. Yep, "rude" and "hateful." I am well-known for hate and rudeness, especially in my family, work and church. No name-calling here.

  • Page TWO: Gary Novak: Rude, Bitter, Hateful Troll. This one is even better.

  • And finally, because Kristi is not an anti-Mormon, she has created Trolling For Trolls: Mormon Trolls Who Deserve Honorable Mention. I am pleased that Kristi just loves Ed Decker. Kristi does not seem to know that D. Michael Quinn is now the darling of the evangelical anti-Mormon crowd. And I am now confident that Kristi must be from somewhere in England where they drop the "h." I am pretty sure that "William J. Amblin" is none other than William J. Hamblin--known to his friends and wife as "Bill." After all, "in Hartford, Herringford and Hampshire, hurricanes hardly ever happen." For the record, Bill is not only a Mr.—with or without the quotation marks—he also has a doctorate from an accredited university. Alas, his degree is not in theology, however.

And finally, Joseph Smith AND MORMONISM GOD'S INSTITUTION OR SATAN'S INSTRUMENT? I have left the oddball punctuation and capitalization for your enjoyment. There is a lot wrong with the page and it would be tedious to point out all of the problems (for instance, there is simply nothing grammatically wrong with "a journeying" or "a preaching" in the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon—this is simply English that has fallen from common use). Mike Parker attempted to reason with the author of the page, pointing out that some of the bad English he criticized in the Book of Mormon is actually a quotation from the Bible. That point, unsurprisingly, was lost on the author of the page. For your enjoyment, I reproduce Mike's correspondence here.
