The old religious authorities at least read a book before they burned it. I prefer not to.
My experience is that the most bitter anti-Mormons have read all the Mormon writings they can get their hands on rather thoroughly. I believe their understanding of it is poor, but I don’t know how to prove that objectively.
But then, there is very little about the religious experience that can be proven objectively.
