Remember a month ago, when I said I used to be Mormon? Yeah, it's true. But it wasn't not of my own volition; I was born into it. I refused to be a part of it once my bio-dad passed away (he was the main one that forced me to be involved), and that was when I was 14. I think that any group has the potential to take it's beliefs too far, whether it be political, religious, moral, etc., and Mormons are no different. There are many wonderful people that are Mormons, just as there are many wonderful people that are Catholic, Buddhist, Agnostic, and Pagan. But there's always someone who has to ruin it for the rest of them, and with Mormonism I think the percentage of extremists is more than the norm. I found this GREAT video on a friend's website today, so here is your very own animated introduction to Mormonism:
Any questions? Yep, I thought that would clear things up (read: confuse the fuck out of you). And to think, we thought Scientologists were stretching it with the alien thing. I love how the whole video is kind of He-Man animated. It really fits, no?
So, like I said, any questions?
