How does everyone here feel about Mormons? I see these young guys riding around on their bikes with their black ties going from house to house. I just think it would suck to be Mormon and have to try and convert people. It just doesn't sound like a lot of fun. They should all just have a Coke and chill.

Happy to say I have never been accosted by a Mormon. I've seen them walking around various neighborhoods. But they've never knocked on my door.

I guess you have to give them some credit for attempting to live a clean life. It seems kind of boring though to go through life without stimulants.

Just because people are stupid doesn't mean you have to call them Morons. It's a nasty term and I would prefer you don't use it.

Credit? For staying clean? To leave a toxic free, stimulant free corpse is not something to be proud of, it's stupid. Do you think the worms care about whether this body had a Hershey's bar or not? Christ would have called them idiots. And Detroit Rock City, you made be an idiot as well.

I'm not a big fan of most organized religions, but trust the ones like this that keep a lot of secrets even less. I feel like religion is the kind of thing you should lay out in it's entirety for people to see and a make an informed decision on whether it's worth putting their faith in. Knew a lot of Mormon kids growing up, and in most ways they were no different than any others (other than the caffine issues, etc.). But did always feel slightly uncomfortable with what felt like some sort of organized attempt to recruit particular kids. Anyway, no putting it down if it's what you believe. An adult has a right to choose his own way. Just not my cup of tea.

Especially man when you get to like 33rd level Mormon. They know shit that the President or God don't even know. They know the secrets of the Universe but you have to know the handshake and the password before they'll tell you.

I am personally INSULTED that none of the Mormons I knew EVER tried to convert me!

Is there something wrong with me? Do I not fit the Mormon mold? Am I not worth "saving"?

Or maybe they saw the 666 on the back of my neck...

I wouldn't worry about that, Kiev, it's really not a pleasant experience. Imagine these smiling freaks who will not leave you alone. They keep coming like robots, smiling the whole time. It's really creepy.

I suppose I'll have to be content to remain a third-level druid.

Damn Mormons took over the best state too. Plenty of farmland, big lake for freshwater fish. They've got it all.

Since I have allready posted my thoughts on religion in the "God" post.. I wont say too much.. But I must say .. that I get really madd when I tell them I have a faith..dont need theirs...They wont leave it alone.. I have been leaving my apt..and they stand on the step below me.. wont move.. till they have tried to convince me that their faith is best..THAT I DONT LIKE!..I give them kudos if they feel that strong about their faith ..to give up stuff... if they are woman and turn themselves into breeders...ect..but DONT FORCE ME TO LISTEN TO YOU WHEN I HAVE SAID NO!..NO MEANS NO!..IT'S LIKE A RELIGIOUS RAPE!

I love that term - RELIGIOUS RAPE! I will use that from now on whenever I am accosted. They won't what hit them. I don't even think a lot of these Mormons that are trying to convert people are deep down that committed. I think they do it because of fear. Fear of God and fear of the community that will chastize them for not doing their mission.

I agree.. I think some people in all religions dont "Truly" belive..but are afraid that is they voice their thoughts..they might go to hell..or whatever...any religion that tells me that my friends and Family will burn in Hell if they dont do as "The church" say's Is not somthing I need to surround myself with.. I'ts all about the love.. Love of all people.. all religions and creeds!

It was like that mean girl in Dawson's Creek that didn't let Jack bring a guy as his date. She said, 'but the Bible says he's going to hell.' Stupid people drive me crazy.
