Why are these guys so damn likable? C'mon, you know it's true...

They do have a reputation for being incredibly friendly... My mother doesn't even mind talking to mormons because she knows when they offer to help her with something, they really do mean it... not like those scummy JWs!

I have to feel sorry for the mormon missionaries here in Australia during the summer... 45 degrees celcius (113 F) and they are riding around on push bikes with full length black pants and a tie around their neck.

I suspect that if they weren't likable, then no one would listen.

I wonder how long you could get them to help with the household chores. I'll listen to you if you help me peel these vegetables. Okay...great...I see....god and stuff...now you  vacuum while I dust...and you can try and talk over the black and decker. There's still so much I don't understand...help me fertilize the flower bed with cow manure. Mhm...that's so interesting...the Jesus guy seemed swell...ever done an oil job? Oh I see...come down to the basement with me...could you help me wash out the pee stains of my children’s sheets and blankets...do you think Jesus wet the bed as a child? Oh look where the time has gone. I have so many questions...see you tomorrow at say...2pm?

There was a Mormon church-- temple-- tabernacle-- mosque-- kennel-- whatever, close to my hometown in Massachusetts. Never saw one Mormon.

I suppose that's good. Mormonism, a 19th century confidence game run amok, is the world's stupidest religion, except maybe for Scientology. I would keep that opinion to myself during most chance encounters, but two necktied, backpacked prosletyizers on my doorstep are fair game.

What is so likable about brainwashed idiots? What do they know about anything except mimicking a cat rolling around with a catnip toy.

And when the prophet Smith was killed in a gun battle while he was in jail, one account states that a man tried to decapitate Smith for a bounty, but was prevented by divine intervention !

Has anyone seen the movie Tabloid?  It's a documentary about a Wyoming beauty queen with an IQ of 168 who fell in love with a mormon more or less on first sight (FOR SOME WEIRD REASON BEST KNOWN TO HERSELF), with adventurous consequences.  She was unable to keep him but she never got over him and never had another boyfriend for the rest of her life.  On the one hand she seems a bit mad, on the other hand she's very likeable.  She certainly makes good use of that IQ.

Mormonism certainly frightens the shit out of me.  I'm steering well clear of them forever.
