But Katzpur.... The Church of the Lamb of God is much larger than .2% of the worlds population... It's still not a majority, but I don't think things are as bleak as you seem to suggest.

At times, Mormonism is incredibly insightful, and I like that. At other times, it can be stupid and ignorant. Fortunately I haven't had massive experience of the latter. Great post, SamBee. You want "experience in the matter", move to Utah. :-) How's that for a broad brush? :mrgreen: HiJolly

HiJolly, give us the facts, please. If I remember correctly, based on a previous thread, you are Pres. Uchtdorf posting incognito, right?

Welcome to the site! "I no longer base my thoughts or feelings upon what a GA says, or what any scripture or doctrine may say. It’s now up to me to wrestle with it and work out my own interpretation.
