I wonder if anyone has ever figured out exactly how much money and material the Mormon church has wasted since it was founded?
I mean, people were encouraged to emigrate from Britain, fro example, and they took with them gold, silver or whatever else they had.
And what about all the chapels, stake houses, stake centres, Mormon church office buildings, temples and latterly all the McTemples of Hinckley’s crazy temple building programme?
And what of the wasted talents of all the people who became Mormons and the waste the talents of their descendents?
What amount of money has been wasted? Billions of Pounds Sterling or Dollars?
And have you ever tried to figure out exactly how or why your former Mormon friends and ex-family members are so damn scared of you? Is it because they think you have a deadly, contagious disease?
Do they think you have some sort of moral cancer that will cause them to fall away from the faith like you did?
And why do they refuse to believe the reason why you stopped being as Mormon?
I mean, after all, it is a well-known “fact” that ex-Mormons only quit being Mormons so they can: Sin or continue to sin, because someone upset them, because they were offended or they were weak or yada, yada, yada.
I think the underlying reason is this. We ex-Mormons scare them. I really do think that. We freak them out. They think if they get too close to us, we will play freaky little mind games and then we will ensnare them and we will hold their souls for ever!
Stupid cult? Oh yeah. Big time stupid cult.
