Why can you have soda with caffeine and can't have coffee when you a Mormon? Does anyone know?

Anthony seems very creepy. Even looking at his face gives me discomfort.

Did you know the mambo nr 5 guy was German?

And.
As for now I didn't cheat on my husband ever in 12 years.
I don't know what will happen in the future, but I think this is already something to brag about. I'm great.

Because at the time when the founder was having regular chats with god and angels they told him he should marry tons of women but not drink hot drinks.
(Also Soda wasn't invented yet)

The Church must have decided to give up on banning soda because so many people were breaking it. The Mormon kids I knew well outside of Utah openingly didn't follow the rule. I've heard many stories about families within Utah who have a hidden stash of soda.

Coworker is Mormon. I asked him for you.
His response:

"I don't know. I do everything. I'm my own boss."

Me: "are you a shitty Mormon?"
Him: "no I'm a jack Mormon. That's what they call the ones who don't follow what they do. I drink, get tattoos. All that shit."
Me: "so why do you call yourself a Mormon still."
Him: "I don't know, because I was babtized or whatever. I guess I'm not a good Mormon."

Clarify everything? Lol

Soda, Coffee, etc

So from spending a few years in Utah, this is what I gathered:

Hot drinks are no good, this includes herbal tea.

The most hardcore TBMs (True Believer Mormons) avoid caffeine even in soda. Unlimited sugar is fine.

Hot Cocoa is a grey area.

One thing I've noticed though...lots of sugar hounds among the Mormons. One of the few vices they're allowed!

But check it: The FLDS (Fundamentalist Mormons who practice polygamy) allow coffee and alcohol. There was a Starbucks in my area that had several sister wives working together in it.

Resident Mormon and BYU grad here!

So, here's the deal. Caffeine was never forbidden. You just had a bunch of overzealous members decided that the reason coffee was forbidden must have been the caffeine and then there was a weird cultural thing around drinking caffeinated soda. It's never been forbidden at BYU, just not sold on campus to avoid having to deal with complaints from the crazier members.

Things that are against the rules:
1) Coffee
2) Tea
3) Any form of alcohol
4) Illegal drugs unless they are prescribed by a doctor. (Lots of members in favor of legalized marijuana to be used as anti-anxiety medication)

I'm so glad I said goodbye to Catholicism and am not forcing my children in any religion.

Glad you guys got to go camping! I absolutely love it. Nothing speaks to me quite like being in the sticks. Chemda you can get a fairly cheap headlamp at Wal-Mart. Also deer are pretty easy going. You still got a little bit before rut season.
