How should people outside of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints respond to the request to dump nicknames like Mormon or LDS? How are you thinking about it?

Earlier this month, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released a statement from its President saying the Lord had directed that everyone use the proper name of the Church. That means nicknames like Mormon or LDS are out. But how should people outside of the faith like journalists respond? What about members who identify themselves as Mormon? We’ll talk about it Tuesday, and dig into the history of the terms. We hope to hear from you too. How are you thinking about it?
