Q: Mormons Pray to Who?

Hello, hello!

Yet again, we have a question that wasn't really a question, just a life experience that addressed a point that I thought I should cover in this world, since some people still have misconceptions like this.

To protect the identity/privacy of this particular person, a theO member as well as an IRL friend, I'll just post the dialogue that occurred at a party due to someone else there being particularly annoying:

"If he does anything worse, so help me..." - me
"Kill him; I'll pray to Joseph Smith to forgive you."
"Ano... we don't pray to Joseph Smith."

So the end of this rather short post is simply this: we do not pray to or worship Joseph Smith in any way. We respect him as a prophet, but by no means do we worship him. It even states in our first Article of Faith, "We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." Furthermore in the fourth Article of Faith, "We believe that the first principles and ordinances of the Gospel are: first, Faith in te Lord Jesus Christ; second, Repentalce; third, Baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; fourth, Laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost."

Case and point: we pray to the same God that other Christians pray to.
