Isn't Mormonism a Christian religion?
Not according to some Christian denominations. As an example, some Evangelicals unease with Mitt Romney's candidacy and their belief that Mormonism is a heretical sect. While it shares a lot with mainstream Christianity, there are some significant doctrinal differences.

Mormons will always assert their Christianity, as they worship Jesus.

(and then they add a few extra things, just to spice it up...)

I did not get the FJ question, nor did my wife, the one with a Master's in Art History, but I digress.

If I didn't get Panther, I would never be able to go back to my second Alma Mater, the University of Pittsburgh.

Ah, you guys went to Pitt, eh? I did two years at CMU, until I joined the world's swelling ranks of architecture school dropouts. This is why you may have noticed a smile from me during my daily double on Friday. :-)

Yeah, remember? We talked about that in the green room. ;)

Salvo, when were you at CMU? My wife was there in 2000 getting her Master's in English (I think. I can never remember where she got her degrees, though I know what they are and in what).

As for me, I got my Master's in Physics and my Bachelor's in Civil Engineering at Pitt. My Bachelor's in Physics is from Kansas State.

My bachelor's is in ChE... When were you at Pitt? (I graduated in 2001...)

I was in the Physics and Astronomy dept from '97 to '04. Went back for CE from '05 to '07. Did you take any astronomy or physics classes?

I was there from 1997-1999, mainlining O fries the whole time.

Just freshman physics... and physical chemistry, which is almost physics. ;)

And mmmm, 'O' Fries. My nostalgic trashy Oakland food of youth is the $3.99 pizzas from Antoon's.

People think I left Pittsburgh simply because I dropped out of CMU. The reality is that I left the city to keep myself from eating any more O fries.

It's certainly one of the religions that observes it, but maybe it's too specific?
I wondered about that, too, and it gets even stickier because the $1K clue was asking for Mormonism, also a Christian religion. If the intended answer for the $200 question is Christianity, doesn't that exclude other Christian religions as answers for the other clues? Obviously not, I guess. :?:

Who was your professor for freshman physics?

I also spent a lot of time at Hemingway's and Peter's Pub.

There's certainly no shortage of religious prejudice, but since the Church of LDS uses the bible and worships Jesus as the son of God, I find it to hard to exclude Mormonism from Christianity, despite what others might think.

Isn't Mormonism a Christian religion? Why does Jeopardy get away with that nonsense? unique religion X 4 then Mormonism.
Whether Mormonism is a Christian religion or not is a matter of debate, particularly among evangelicals.

I think the debate should come down to if it "fits the clue". While it's debatable if "Shrove Tuesday" should be counted correct for "Christianity" or just "Catholicism", as there seem to be some Protestant denominations that celebrate that holiday too, it's less of a debate if "Pioneer Day" should be counted correct for "Christianity" or just "Mormonism", as there's only one Christian denomination that celebrates that. "Christianity" I think would get a "BMS".

J! was preempted by a local news/sports show about the Final Four, since the local university was in it. They did this last week on Thursday and Friday as well. Playing from this thread I wouldn't have had any clue about FJ! - my guess was cubism, though why that would have anything to do with color is beyond me. I made the same connection as others - "blue" --> "blue period" --> Picasso --> "cubism".

So, by that argument, Christianity = Judaism.
