Well, you might read up on the Mountain Meadows massacre. I don't
recall they beheaded them, but dead is dead. And blaming it on
Indians wasn't all that cool either.

I can't remember the stats, but only about 50% of Utah is Mormons. The other
half don't seem to be too upset about it.

You've got a point there.
Of course there are those guys on Temple Square.

And we don't behead folks.


Anymore.
Maybe.
Of course, dressing up in costume and waylaying people by the side of the
road is still very popular- and Porter Rockwell's legacy is alive and well.
It's dangerous to pass through Mormon country if you're gentile; and
dangerous to stay there if you don't toe the Saint's line.
Of course, you can always move to Mexico, hunh?

What do you get when you cross a JW and an atheist? A guy who goes door to
door but doesn't know why.

How to drive a Unitarian family out of the neighborhood? Burn a question
mark on their front lawn.

What do you get when you cross a dyslexic and a Unitarian? A guy who lays
awake at night trying to decide if there is a dog.

Atheism is NOT a religion, it is living a life without the need for
such superstitiions. That said, I find religion fascinating and study
it a good deal. It's interesting to learn what makes people behave in
such strange ways. Kind of like studying abnormal psychology.

Yikes, I hate to T-off on the various religious sects because reason ain't
a priority with any of 'em anyway, ay, but the Mormon version of "history"
has to go, Stormin' Mormon.

Let's not kid ourselves this stuff about Joseph Smith discovering a "lost"
scripture and being able to read it suddenly with golden spectacles
represents any kind of factual information.
That's about a lame an origins story as I've ever seen.

Even the Scientologist scam with alien beings involved has more
pizzazz- you Mormons need some aliens to spice this thing up.
The golden specs routine just ain't making it.

Chas-
hi. i'm not disputing the facts of your experience regarding the
polygamous clan you lived among, experiences on the highway with the
uhp, etc. however, i would say that my experiences have differed from
yours. i've lived in utah over a decade, married into a mormon family
(my wife is ex-mormon), i work with mormons, live with mormons, etc.
my wife's family has both strong pioineer and polygamous roots (her
great grandfather's family was in mexico for a bit and they even have
some cool stories about pancho villa). neither of us have ever
experienced nor even heard of some of the views that you mention
above.
i would totally agree with the idea that utah is probably closer
to a theocracy than any state in the union, but in the sense of the
people being very conservative, religious republicans not insane
gentile haters. i would also agree that they have a strong
persecutory complex from their early history and that many of them
believe they have the one true religion.
however, i do not believe that the positions you describe above
are held by the majority of mormons that a person would meet in utah.
rather, they would be an extreme view.
back to lurking...

The extreme view is just that- the extreme of a scale that starts from
'neutral'. You don't need to meet but one of the extreme ones, and 'neutral'
isn't available at all.
I'm probably more affrontive to them than you are as well. It's pretty
obvious, from 50 ft. away, that I'm not Mormon- not true with them at all.

None of the mormons I know are like this. Quite the opposite, most of them
are quite friendly and helpful, often to the point where it's annoying.
Granted I don't know what they talk about in secret but frankly don't care
much either.

I've only identified one group that's 'out to get me', and that's corrupt
government officials here in the Denver area. And I've proven it time and
time again.
If I knew there was a nest of vipers in your path, I'd warn you about them

Mormons actually have a lower crime rate than the rest of the population.
