As someone who's married to a Mormon (member of the LDS Church), I am going to watch this thread. And maybe answer any questions I know the answers to.

I don't see how they're any more fascinating than the Baptists, though. Baptists are also relatively young as a flavor of Christianity, and prone to a variety of wacky sub-cultures and splinter movements. They probably started out around the 17th century.

Unitarianism springs from the mid-16th century and can be even more wacky than the Baptists, though it's older, as a group, than either Baptists or, as you say, Joseph Smith sects.

It seems to me that Christianity tosses out a weird variant about every century or so.
