Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?

What I can gather about the Mormon teaching about the relationship between Jesus and Satan is that they are spirit brothers.

Apparently they had many spirit brothers and sisters. Their father was one of many gods.

God needed to choose a savior for the people he was going to place on Earth. God’s two oldest spirit children both volunteered. Lucifer and Jesus were these two. Lucifer’s plan was to force the people to submit to God.

Lucifer’s plan was a different plan than had been done by the saviors that had been sent to all the other planets by their gods. (There were many gods.)

The god who was the father of Jesus and Lucifer accepted Jesus’ offer to be the savior of people on Earth. Lucifer didn’t like the decision and rebelled. One-third of his spirit brothers and sisters sided with him (Lucifer). One-third sided with Jesus. One third didn’t take sides.

Lucifer was cast out of heaven and called Satan. The one-third that sided with Lucifer were not given physical bodies and were cast down to Earth. The one-third that sided with Jesus were given light colored physical bodies and sent to Earth. The one third that didn’t take sides were given physical bodies with dark skin and sent to Earth.

Jesus was was then conceived by god(?) when he went to Mary and had sexual relations with her. This made Jesus the only begotten son in the flesh.

To sum it up, Jesus and Lucifer were the two oldest spirit brothers in heaven (or was that on Kolob?) Jesus took on the title of son of god, and Lucifer took on the name Satan.

When asked the question, "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?" the response from the mormon church (LDS) was “Like other Christians,we believe Jesus is the divine Son of God. Satan is a fallen angel. As the Apostle Paul wrote, God is the Father of all. That means that all beings were created by God and are His spirit children. Christ, however, was the only begotten in the flesh, and we worship Him as the Son of God and the Savior of mankind.”

Are the Mormons trying to hide that they teach Jesus and Lucifer as brothers?
