The Book of Mormon does not tell the whole story of Mormons. I lived in a small town in Colorado where 20% of the people were Mormons. They believed in community, family, cooperation, hard work, saving, and restraint. If you take delight in human complications, they are nearly the most boring people on earth, because they work so hard (and pretty successfully) to make themselves and their environment uncomplicated. They almost eternally find the bright side of any problem, and sit their with an infuriating smile on their faces, happier and more content than anyone around them. They struck me as decent to a fault.
The selling point of their religion (which they are honor-bound to proselytize) is the brilliant support their community gives to families and individuals, and not any revelations contained in their weird book.
