Welcome to MormonDoctor.com! This is a forum to discuss topics related to health and religion from the perspective of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
What does religion have to do with health care? The intersection of these topics is a major point of discussion and conflict in society and politics today, and probably will be for the foreseeable future. This goes back millennia, long before there existed any profession of health care providers.
What unique perspective can Mormons offer on this topic? We have been interested in this subject for nearly the entire history of the Church (see the Word of Wisdom for an early example), and we have a lot to say about it.
What is the purpose of this blog? The broader culture today professes to believe in tolerance, and this belief resonates with Latter-day Saints. We believe in tolerating other people’s beliefs and practices, just as we claim the privilege of being tolerated by others (see our 11th article of faith and a post on this topic). But it is hard to tolerate what you don’t understand, so we hope that this website will promote understanding. Tolerance is a two-way street, and this is your invitation to drive down and visit our house.
Thank you for visiting us. We hope you will come again.
