The whole reason why the Mormons traveled to the west was because they were persecuted for their beliefs in the east.

to be treated in a dignified way

The Mormons, as they were commonly known, had moved west to escape religious discrimination. After the murder of founder and prophet Joseph Smith, they knew they had to leave their old settlement in Illinois. Many Mormons died in the cold, harsh winter months as they made their way over the Rocky Mountains to Utah.

"Explain being treated in a dignified way?"

well umm they were treated the same way as America they were treated right and well no one made fun of them they were treated the right way someone should be treated.

It mean to infer, or suggest in a roundabout way.

In a way, yes. The locals disliked the Mormons and attacked them several times, including murdering their prophet, Joseph Smith. The Mormons often retaliated. In order to preserve the public peace, the government asked the Mormons to leave Illinois and the United States within a year, and the Mormons cooperated. The Mormons were previously driven out of Missouri by an extermination order issued by the governor.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly called the "Mormon" church) became unpopular in the east because many easterners believed anything they heard. False reports and rumors about the Mormons circulated like wildfire. Also, the Mormons practice and preaching were quite different from what most traditional Christians were used to. Many viewed that as a threat to their way of life. The Mormons preached a non-trinitarian God, that there were prophets on the earth today, that God still reveals scripture to mankind. Mormons allowed all races to worship together, opposed slavery, and allowed women to preach. This was all viewed as destructive to traditional Christianity and the social climate at the time.

Who said that? That was America's greatest generation, they were treated that way then, they're treated that way now.

The beliefs of the early Mormons were essentially the same as the beliefs of Mormons today. The way these beliefs are practiced and what beliefs are emphasized have changed over time to be more relevant with the lives of modern believers, but the doctrines remain the same. The basic beliefs of Mormons can be found at

The Mormons used it as a code meaning "Killed"

No one they were treated the same way they always had been as second class citizens.

Think of it this way; it has to be Catholics or Mormons, because everything except Mormons branched off of Catholic.If Catholics right, they're still all wrong because each one was tweaked a bit. If Mormons are right, then...they're right :)

Treat others the way you would want to be treated...Or better.

Golden Rule. Treat them the way you would want to be treated.

Some Mormons about their own faith, because they are trying to better educate themselves, or see if others think the same way. This does not mean all of the questions about Mormons are asked by Mormons. Also, it is worthy of noting that there are thousands of questions about other religions on this site as well. People are curious, so they ask.
