British court summons Mormon leader to appear on charges of fraudulent teaching

An English court has ordered the 86-year-old American president of the  to appear in court next month on fraud charges, The Telegraph reported. 

Two former Mormons allege that seven Mormon teachings were fraudulently presented as true, with the result that the ex-Mormons paid an annual tithe to the church. 

These seven teachings include the following: “all humans alive today are descended from just two people who lived approximately 6,000 years ago”; “Native Americans are descended from an Israelite family which left Jerusalem in 600 B.C.”; and “the Book of Mormon was translated from ancient gold plates by Joseph Smith, is the most correct book on earth, and is an ancient historical record.”
