If the "Code of Whites" refers to anything racial, then I can answer definitively that no, the code of whites is NOT enforced in the Mormon Church. The Church turned its back on all racial issues in 1970, and they have not looked back.
If the "Code of Whites" has something to do with the white clothing that Mormons wear under their street clothes or in the temple, then I have no idea, and this answer should be copied to the discussion page, so that this question will appear unanswered for further contributors.
The Mormons' belief did not end. The "Mormon" church, which is a nickname for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is still a worldwide growing church. You can learn more about the Mormon religion by visiting www.mormon.org.
Brendon Urie, the lead singer of Panic at the Disco, was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) but stopped attending services after graduating high school. Although he is not currently a practicing Mormon, he has not had his membership revoked and is still technically a member of the Church.
No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) stopped allowing it's members to have more than one wife over 120 years ago in October 1890. Anyone found practicing polygamy since then has been kicked out of the Church. The only way that a Mormon may marry more than once is if their spouse dies or if they are divorced. There were some who disagreed with this new policy who left the Mormon church to begin their own groups. Many of these groups still exist today and do still practice polygamy. Sometimes these groups are called "Fundamentalist Mormons" because they broke off the of the Mormon church, however they are not affiliated with the Mormon church in any way and have tried to distance themselves from the Mormon Church as much as possible.
No. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) banned the practice of polygamy over 120 years ago, in 1890. Anyone found practicing polygamy since that time has been excommunicated from the Church. There were some who disagreed with this ban and left the Mormon church to form their own groups. Many of these groups still exist today and are sometimes referred to as "Mormon Fundamentalists." These groups are not affiliated with the regular Mormon Church and believe that the Mormon Church has left God's way.

0%. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" Church) have been forbidden to practice polygamy for over 120 years. The practice of polygamy in the Mormon church was abolished in October 1890, and since that time anyone found entering into a polygamous marriage has been excommunicated from the Church. Those who disagreed with the polygamy ban broke away from the Mormon Church and started their own groups. Many of these groups are still in existence today. They sometimes are called "Mormon Fundamentalists", but they are not affiliated with the Mormon church and both groups (the Mormons and the Fundamentalists) see each other as apostates and don't want anything to do with each other.
'Jack Mormon' is a slang term used in Mormon culture originally to describe a friend of the LDS Church* who was not a member. Over time, the term came to be applied to those who are members of the church but do not follow the tenets or lifestyle of the faith. For example, a Mormon who drinks alcohol and coffee but still attends church might be a Jack Mormon. So might an individual who believes in the faith, but has stopped attending meetings. The term has fallen into disuse in recent years, and such individuals are now commonly described as "less active" or "inactive" Saints. * The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, often nicknamed the Mormon church.
The Catholic Church does not accept any other church as the true Christian faith. However, the Catholic Church has been very gracious in working together with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) on many projects and accepting them as a friend and ally on both faith and moral issues. For the most part, the Catholic and Mormon churches get along very well, both locally and internationally. The Catholic Church has said that they do not accept the practice of Mormon baptism for the dead for those who were baptized Catholics, and that they do not want local parishes or congregations releasing their record books to the Mormon Church for that purpose. Catholic parishes still welcome individual Mormons researching their own ancestors, but do not allow the Mormon Church to copy their records in bulk. The Mormon Church understands their concern and has not pressed the issue.
Yes. Kody Brown served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) in San Antonio, Texas. While he was away, his parents converted to the Apostolic United Brethren. When Kody returned, he left the Mormon church and joined the Apostolic United Brethren with his parents. He and his family still belong to that church.
Kelly Clarkson was never a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church). Perhaps you are confusing her with another American Idol contestant who is Mormon? Mormon American Idol contestants include David Archuleta, Kenzie Hall, Jon Peter Lewis, Carmen Rasmussen, and Brooke White.
I'm just learning about the mormons religon but I do not thank they have a differnet beleif then any other mormons. They come from all around to teach us the good and great , powerful lord , jesus christ & will all ways do the same belief to all persons of the relgion. -------- another answer: There are many small groups which have split off from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) for different reasons. Some people still consider members of these groups Mormon because they still believe in the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, however there are some major differences between them and the original mainstream Mormon church. The largest of these breakoff groups are the Community of Christ, the FLDS, and the Apostolic United Brethren. The Mormon Church considers these to be apostate groups and does not accept them as Mormon.
Actually, "Mormon" is the new name. The official name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This has been their official name since 1838. Prior to this they were sometimes known as the Church of Christ (1830-1834) or as the Church of Latter Day Saints (1834-1838). The title "Mormon" was a nickname given to them by their enemies, mocking them for their belief in the Book of Mormon. Mormons have since embraced the name and accept "Mormon" as an appropriate, although informal, nickname. However, Mormons still prefer to be called "Latter-day Saints" or "LDS" rather than "Mormon". Generally, it is acceptable to call the followers "Mormons", but it is not appropriate to call the church the "Mormon Church".
"Mormon Underwear" are also known as garments. These garments are worn by members of the LDS church who have entered the temple and made covenants with the Lord. The garments are a reminder and an outward expression of those covenants made with God. There are MANY LDS members who have never been through the temple but are still active members of the Church. No... "Mormon Underwear" or GARMENTS are NOT required to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
