Just interchange Utah County with BYU in this video, which is not much of a stretch AT ALL, for the sake of the point being made.
The administration of BYU and THE (MORmON) church for that matter is just one great big "good cop, bad cop" act.
Dealing with MORmONS as they have slipped into the bad cop/ MORmON enforcement agent role is an EXCEPTIONALLY UNPLEASANT experience, especially with MORmONS that relish playing that role, like the person that Bengt Washburn is talking about in the video.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcKM7orX1V8
I tried to attend BYU after I came home from *my* mission / THEIR!!!! mission for me. It was a HUGE mistake on my part. I am going to take some of the blame for that. After having attended (ABYSMAL) Ricks College - the Idaho version of BYU for a year before my mission, it was pure IDIOCY on my part to follow up by going to BYU. I managed to get a job working for a machine shop in Provo. That machine shop somehow managed to make arrangements to use a BYU owned injection molding machine that was located on BYU campus to make some plastic parts for a contract that the machine shop had. My job was to oversee the running of the molding machine. That meant: FIRST, visually observing/ inspecting the parts that were coming out to make certain that the machine was producing good parts while it was operating. SECOND, Make sure that the machine stayed stocked with polymer resin raw material so it could keep producing parts while oprating. THIRD, snip the feed stringers off of the parts.
In my experience being on a mission was an exhausting experience. IN my experience being at BYU was an exhausting experience. In my case, I had been run into the ground before *my* mission in the interest of earning money to pay for that mission. I became ill toward the end of my mission. The end result of those factors was that I was fairly well exhausted by the time I was running that injection molding machine on BYU campus.
As the machine was operating according to plan, I was allowed to sit down to do my job and in accordance with that allowance and arrangement, a folding chair had been provided for the machine operator to be able to sit down. At various times, the machine operator might sit in that chair doing nothing but watching the machine operate for several minutes at a time. It was a tiny chance for me to rest ever so slightly amid my hectic and overwhelming (IMPOSSIBLE) schedule that I was immensely grateful while immersed in the gut wrenching scramble of trying to survive as a BYU student in Utah County.
Some full time BYU faculty member who was basically head gopher /assistant for the real professors/administrators in the Engineering dept saw me sitting in the chair doing nothing. AS IF he was paying my wages (and he was NOT), he became very upset over the matter and took it upon himself to verbally berated me for being lazy. He informed me that any kind of decent person would be "anxiously engaged" in doing something productive in every available second. That busy body absolute A$$ hole took up the issue with my employer who Was paying me.
My employer explained my job to the guy who still objected to the situation on the grounds that I was setting a bad example of laziness to other student employees even though I was NOT a BYU student employee. My employer asked the guy what he thought I should be doing to keep busy every single second. At first the guy suggested that it was my employers problem to figure that out, and faulted my employer for not having me busy every second. When Capt A$$ hole realized that approach was not going to do anything to make my life more miserable, he suggested that I have a mop and a broom so I could do janitorial type stuff in the area in order to keep me busy every second. It did not matter if the floor was already clean. Sweep and/or mop it anyway. If there was nothing else to do, then sweep and mop again! The important thing was that I should be doing something every second ....to help keep my laziness in check. Of course, it would not be fair to expect my employer to purchase the mop and broom that would be used to benefit BYU .....which meant that I should have to pay for them myself, because hardship is good for the student, so the more hardship then the better, and imposing hardships on students becomes a virtue for the self appointed MORmON guardians of virtue and right.
recalling that instance brings several absolutely infuriating predatory and abusive MORmON conventions to mind.
After my experiences with those kinds of MORmONS, I do NOT have to wonder at all why the people in Missouri ended up kicking MORmON asses clear out of the state.
