Mormon: No, we don't believe that. Why don't you do some actual research before you open your big, stupid mouth
Nice dudes, that try to brainwash you. Next thing you know you're a nice dude that's trying to brainwash someone!
Hello Sir. We're Morons, UGH sorry, we're Mormons.
Mormon Dude 2:
We want to tell you all about the book of Mormon.
Okay, come in...

We're here to tell you all about the book of Mormon!
They often sport name tags with the title of 'Elder', despite being of college student age.
Although they do seem friendly enough, to normal folk they are still god-damned annoying. Indeed, if anybody can put up with a Mormon visit without telling them to "Fuck Off", they deserve a VIP place in Heaven.
Firstly, we don't do polygamy. Yes, it was practiced in the olden days but then a prophet was told that we should not and so we don't practice polygamy anymore. There is another branch of Mormons that still do practice polygamy, but they're not associated with the church.
Okay, a prophet is kind of like a pastor. He's the leader of the church and he receives revelation from God. That doesn't mean others can't receive it, but that will be personal to the person.
No, we're not brainwashed. Those who are of the church fully believe in it, just like people of other faiths believe. We do have missionaries who go and preach the gospel. The boys can go when they're 18 and, though strongly encouraged, do not HAVE to go. Also, I've heard people say that they have to pay for it themselves. This is true, but if you can't come up with all the money, the church will make up the rest. Girls can go when they're 19.
Another thing that really peeves me: homosexuality. Okay, Mormons. Do. Not. Hate. Gays. We love them just like anybody else. We simply believe that marriage was made to be between a man and a woman and, while not condoning it, we don't hate gays/lesbians.
I hope this has helped with your knowledge of Mormons. More to follow.
