“Most of the evil in this world is done by people with good intentions.”
― T.S. Eliot

I guess I’m guilty of doing some evil. I sincerely went into my Mormon research with the best of intentions. I wanted to learn and share more about the religion. I have spent years hearing rumors about it’s inception and rituals and felt it was time to see what the fuck was really going on with these young adults on bicycles.

For what it’s worth, I am not sure that a religion exists that doesn’t expect personal sacrifice and devotion to a deity higher than myself, so I suppose it’s a bit of a hard sell. For me at least. I like my weekends clear  and I like to do the judging instead of someone else judging me.

Okay LDS, you do have your advantages: taking care of your own during times of struggle, being a humble servant to others, stockpiling diet Coke. But c’mon; tithing 10% of your income? Jesus was in Missouri? No booze? Sounds kinda sus bros. To each her own I suppose. As long as you’re not hurting anyone, live and let live. Just stop baptizing dead Jews. Makes you look like a bit of an asshole.
