You tube and Internet

I've never really searched very much information on the internet about the LDS church. I never really cared what others thought because I felt, and knew, what I believe was and is true. I recently searched a few things on You tube and came across a lady who seemed to comment on EVERY single You Tube video about LDS members. So, I replied to her... and this is what I wrote, and this is how I feel about the people who write stuff about us ALL over the internet.

I Just want to tell you how hard you make me laugh. You really are hilarious in trying to tear down LDS members. Why don't you worry about you, and what you may believe and let people believe what they'd like to believe. You look ridiculous all over all of these Mormon or LDS You tube videos trying to persuade others to stop believing. We are all WELL aware what has happened in our religion in the past, and what is happening now. If you choose to believe that we are a cult, that is fine, we are not, but.. after all, this is America, and you are entitled to your own thoughts and opinions. I, as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints [btw: we don't like to be called "Mormons", as this is only one of the books we believe in, not who we are, we are LDS] I feel very strongly in what I believe in, and I have a LOT of respect for others, and what they believe in. I have befriended Jews, Christians, etc... and have no problem with what they believe in. We all have our own rights to do so.
However, those of us who are LDS, couldn't care less about what you have to say about what we believe. We are proud of who we are, and by you trying to bring us down, only makes up believe more in what we call "the adversary". So, thanks, thanks for making my testimony that much stronger. So, Today, as I may go to the temple to worship and to pray... I will remember people like you, and remember why there is people like you. To show us, good from evil. To teach us... with out trials, no one would ever grow.
