That is the Church of Jesus Christ of latter Day Saints, LDS for short. It is an offshoot religion with some differing beliefs. The Book of Mormon is claimed to be a transcription of some gold tablets given into the care of the founder and subsequently returned somewhere. Mainstream and evangelical Christians have alternately persecuted Mormons and chased them out of several locals. There also are sub-sects that engage in selling children into marriage at young ages. This is not an accepted practice in many states in the US. Texas recently prosecuted one case, Warren Jeffs.
