I thought Christmas time would be a good time to talk about the birth of Christ. A common allegation of anti-Mormons is that the LDS Church teaches that God the Father has sexual relations with Mary, and thus deny the virgin birth. This is another issue that is often used to insist that Mormons are not true Christians, and that we believe in a "different" Jesus. The Institute for Religious Research claims that the LDS Church teaches that Jesus was “conceived physically through intercourse between Heavenly Father and the virgin Mary.”[1] Several others have made this claim.
