Time to break open the complaint box and see what we've recently received...
Oh look! Something by someone to insecure to put their name. Let's see what it says:
A whole blog dedicated to trashing Mormons? How bitter can a
person possibly get? It makes me think they have something worth having,
otherwise you wouldn't waste so much time being bothered by it...
Anonymous, I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I appreciate all of my readers and I'm glad you stopped by. There have obviously been some misunderstandings and perhaps a few things were lost in translation. It's a common issue, no need to feel sheepish for not getting it. Hopefully my reply will help clear up a few things.
For the record, I don't trash Mormons. I trash Mormon culture. HUGE difference. I would never look at a group of Mormons just minding their own business and just start slamming them. That would be mean. But, if that group of Mormons are in their 30s, single, and all playing a rousing game of human Foosball in the church gym
Hells yes I'm going to point out the absurdity. Seriously odd, childish, and ridiculous games are a favorite in mid-single Mormon culture. I'm fairly certain it explains why they are all "mid-singles" and not "mid-have lives" So it's totally fair game to trash.
And the Mormon culture is SO HUGE and SO FULL of ridiculous garbage that it needs it's own space. Therefore I gave it its own blog. I think it's that important. Important enough to have it's own blog.
As far as "how bitter can a person get", great rhetorical question. We could talk about this one for years. I going to take a stab at it and say people can get really, really bitter.
Or were you backhandedly saying that I am bitter? If you were, I agree, to a degree. When it comes to Mormon culture I am LOADED with an endless supply of skin curling irritation, and a hefty serving of hatred, perhaps you interpret that as being bitter. Honestly the culture sucks, and when I say sucks, I mean it sucks HARD. It can take the most brilliant, honest, spiritual person on the planet and in a matter of month pound them down to an insecure half wit who spends the rest of their life going and doing what everyone else is going and doing (how do you think they get all of those people together for foosball?...it's not the free drinks). The culture will drive real people insane. It's just a side effect of religion. If it were up to me I'd have a waring sign hanging outside the church letting them know that great things often come in really messed up packages.
The gospel just happens to unfortunately fall into that category.
Finally, "it makes me think they have something worth having". BINGO! That, my friend is the spirit testifying to you that there is something about it worth having. I don't discuss doctrine on this blog but if you would like I can have my two friends come over to your house and explain to you what the "worth having" part is all about. Send me your address and I'll send them right on over. Two guys. Black pants, white shirts, name tags. You can't miss them. Their first names are Elder. OH! And they come in every language, so if you'd like to hear about the "worth having " part in French, or Russian, or Tagalog we can make that happen.
But just so you know nothing about this blog is a waste of time, you can ask my followers. They'll tell you. Although, judging by your comment you probably do more productive things with your time...like reading blogs you're just going to trash, and judging people's motives, and totally failing to recognize satire and sarcasm (non-time wasters tend to really hate us satirical sarcastic types...it really is a shame), and being too insecure to use your name. Productivity at its best.
Once again, thanks for reading. I hope you return and learn a thing or two about the reality of the Mormon culture.
