Getting the style right for Mormons
There are several sources for the proper way to refer to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its members. Here are some sources:
- The official styleguide of the Church.
- Religion Newswriters Association Religion Stylebook
- Associated Press Stylebook
For the AP stylebook, see the entry under “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” and “Mormon church.”
Notice too the difference between the AP style and the Church’s requested style.
