Where do Mormons live outside the US?

Pretty much anywhere in the world

Is Salt Lake City where most American Mormons live?

I live in salt lake and would say it has the largest concentration of mormans as percentage of total population. But most mormans in the US live out of slc. Out of utah in fact. ---------------- No, definately not. While Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church), most American Mormons live outside of Utah. (There are 6,060,000 baptized Mormons in the United States, and 1,884,000 of those live in Utah.) So, less than 1/3 of American Mormons live in Utah. Most Mormons in Utah live outside of Salt Lake City. The city itself is actually quite liberal and diverse, and the homes are small and expensive compared to the rest of the state. The suburbs surrounding Salt Lake City are where the majority of Mormons in Utah live. Some of the suburbs are more than 90% Mormon. About 80,000 of the 6,060,000 American Mormons live in Salt Lake City, which is just over 1.3%.

Do Mormons pledge allegiance to the church before the US?

Most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) live outside the United States. They do not pledge allegiance to the US because they are not US citizens. Mormons believe in honoring their country, wherever they live. Within Mormonism, honoring or 'pledging allegiance' to your country is a part of pledging allegiance to your religion, since Mormons are expected to "be subject to kings, presidents, rulers and magistrates in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law."

Why did the Mormons seek refuge outside of the US?

The Mormons had faced severe persecution and oppression from both local residents and city and state governments. An appeal for protection to the United States government was not answered, so the Mormons decided to seek religious freedom outside of the United States.

How did the arrival of the Mormons effect the U tes?

The Mormon pioneers and the Utes got along quite well. Of course there were a few incidents but for the most part the Utes recognized that the Mormons were in a similar situation with most Native American groups - kicked out of their homes by the US government and in need of a safe place to live. Because of this they were usually quite welcoming and helpful to the Mormons.

Everywhere! In 1900, most Mormons lived in Utah, southern Idaho, and northern Arizona, with a few congregations in Canada, Mexico, and other US States as well as most European countries and many of the Pacific Islands.
