  •  The naming of religions is problematic (0+ / 0-)

    because they often branch off from previous traditions, and retain major elements even after they become quite distinct. The difference between a sect of a religion and a separate religion altogether can be more a matter of degree than of kind.

    Mormonism has a lot of Christianity in it, and maybe you could call it a kind of Christianity, but it is not the same religion. Any more than Christianity is the same religion as Judaism, even though it grew out of Judaism.
