Why do Mormons accept and applaud Adam and Eve’s rejection of God while at the same time teach that behaving inappropriately isn’t acceptable?

2 Corinthians 11:3-4; “But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and proclaims another Jesus than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept a different gospel from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough.”
Long before I became a Christian I was invited to attend a church service by a friend of mine in Las Vegas. Both of our husbands were away fighting in the first Gulf War in Iraq (it was November 1990) and we were both expecting babies before the husbands were slated to come back. At the end of a very long explanation from my friend on why I should attend church with her because I was bringing another life into the world, I relented – with conditions. I wanted to sit at the back of the congregation so I could get up and leave in a hurry if I didn’t like what they had to say.

Adam and Eve’s Sin and the New Mormon Website
In my daily LDS Gems e-mails I received notice today (February 26, 2008) of another new website launched by the Church. Here in part is what it said;
“The new site is a helpful resource for anyone who wishes to know firsthand what Latter-day Saints believe about Jesus Christ. It is also a valuable reference that Church members can use as they share their beliefs with others.”
