The Mormon religion is all about saving souls, beginning with one's own. It is about trying to become like Jesus. It is about learning the way to achieving true happiness and joy in life, and gaining eternal life in the world to come. In relation to the centrality of this theme, God has said, "This is my work and my glory to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of Man." The Church testifies that Jesus is the Christ, and the only means through which a man can be saved.

Mormons (members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) choose not to consume alcohol and consider it a commandment not to do so.

Marriage and family, on the other hand, form a key part of their religion and lifestyle, and are an institution which, they believe, bring blessings and a happiness that can be found via no other medium.

The Church teaches one about prayer, study, fasting, service to one's fellow man. It teaches us about our first parents, Adam and Eve, of prophets that were upon the, now what we call the American continent. It teaches of Christs visit to them and leaving them with the Holy Priesthood. It teaches us what happens when one does not keep the commandments, that Satan is real and is doing all He can to destroy the work of the Lord.

It teaches the words of Christ "To bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man".

It teaches that man is forever, that this life is but one tiny part of man's total existence and that he can go on from here to greater things.

Is the Mormon religion the wealthiest in the world?

The Mormon religion is is not the wealthiest in the world. The Mormon church as a whole get the funding from tithing. In the Mormon religion it is believed that paying tithing saves you in the last days (when Jesus comes again). People who pay it pay it by choice. They are definitely not forced to pay tithing. Tithing is 10% of the money that you get (even pocket money). Mormons use this money to build temples, wards and help people in need. In fact the Mormon church is always one first to help after a disaster or others in need. Many people call this church the Mormon church but this is really a nickname. The church is really called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. LDS is also another nickname.

Does Miley Cyrus like Mormons?

No one's really sure, since she's never made any public announcements on the subject, however, the religion that she follows could play a part on her view on Mormons. Methodists typical don't like the Mormon religion or it's followers. Baptists are usually friendly to Mormons but don't support the religion itself. I'm pretty sure that she is one of those two religions. (Also please keep in mind that not all Methodists and Baptists are the same. I'm a Mormon and some of my best friends are Methodist and Baptist!)

I can't really disagree with your characterization of the nature of religion. Yes, religion is included in human rights but it isn't always defined as freedom of religion rather it is describe as "freedom of conscience" to include even those who have no believe in a divine being who runs the show. Atheists, agnostics, etc are included.
