I was a MORmON

They seem like pretty decent folks. I don't think the Church should have "used" them to make converts. That would be like the JWs using the Jackson Five to make converts.
My uncle was Michael Jackson's massage therapist (no, not the happy ending kind). They're both dead now (my uncle and MJ both).
I saw Barbara Walters ask Donnie Osmond why the Church banned blacks from it's Temples. Donnie said, "Well, we really don't know the reason why".
That's not true, and Donnie knew it, but I've heard plenty of Mormons say the exact same thing to people. Lying for the Lord.
I had a crush on Marie. She married a womanizer, which is her business. As a young Mormon convert, I was told that Womanizers have "no power over Mormon women". That was 40 years ago. I discovered they have ABSoLUTE power.
