The Latter Day Saint movement is the collection of independent church groups that trace their origins to a Christian restorationist movement founded by Joseph Smith in the late 1820s. Collectively, these churches have over 15 million members. The vast majority of adherents belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with their predominant theology being Mormonism.

As is the case for many other churches, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has become increasingly politically correct and has changed its positions on, for example, various race issues.
