You put it so succinctly, Rubicon!
Mormon women are worse, IMO, because they judge each other according to their husband's cult callings, and not on their own merits. Try fitting into that hierarchy if you are a woman with NO husband at all.
Good point about JS being "a white trash guy craving social standing."
Mormon priesthood holders aggrandize themselves and each other, constantly, in testimony meeting, and in introducing each other as a speaker. The bragging is nauseating. They are self-proclaimed, self-anointed "Men of God", with no merit, no qualifications, no diploma from divinity school. They tell others how to live, and then go home and beat their children and demean their wife, and dream of the day when they can be God over their own planet, and their own harem of wives. I'm serious--I have know too many Mormon men in my life--and the truly good ones are far outnumbered by the poseurs.
Mormons give each other fake titles, and once they reach that level, they use those titles long after they have been released. My friend calls her own husband "President." Former bishops are still referred to as "Bishop", and this has been going on forever. (They never call the RS president "President", though.)
LDS, Inc. is like a sales company who gives out awards to its sales employees, for advertising hype. "Jeff Jones, Platinum Salesman of The Year" Sally Smith, member of the "Billion Dollar Club." "Russel M. Nelson, Prophet, Seer, and Revelator."
They're a bunch of Narcissistic megalomaniacs!
