Is Mormonism a cult?

I feel like the Lord is calling me to be a pastor and I also feel called toward the Catholic Church, but I am married -- what prevents me from being a priest?

Why do Catholics pray to statues?

How do I, in my heart, know that transubstantiation is a fact?

I’ve been talking to an ex-priest who told me that the Church is run by canon law instead of the Bible -- what is your response to this? 

Do Catholics re-crucify Christ in the Mass?
