The comments section for the Business Week article is fun to read. Full of smug, self-righteous comments from Mormons. Here's my favorite so far:
"All you bashers of the Mormon Faith need to take a good look at yourselves and see who is really directing your thoughts and words because it surely does not come from heaven. The Mormons are some of the best people on this earth, we help everyone from our neighbors to disaster victims, Mormons and non Mormons alike. You will not find a people more dedicated to family and service than us. It seems to me that the life we lead is to difficult for so many, so you must find fault with it, because you can't or don't want to do it. Gotta have that drink or cigarette or that mister or mistress Sin is so much more fun than living a Christ Like Life but will get you nowhere."
The first ten comments in the reader's section below the article are from mormons. They are spitting mad. They are irrational. They are in "I drank the kool aid" style. Mormons are flooding the comments with a combination of propaganda and "How dare you!"
This article came up in conversation with a never-mo today. He brought it up! He thought it was a great article. Everyone else knows those apologist reactions are ridiculous and just makes TSCC sound more cult-like. Whatever. Yay for business week being ballsy!
blahblahblah we are better than you blahblahblah we are waaaay better than you blahblahblah we are humble servants of heaven who are soooo much better than you blahblahblah.
I hope the TBM die-hards keep commenting because their off-the-mark tunnel-vision sounds just like the Scientologist die-hard comments on any article about Scientology's role in the Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise divorce. To the unwashed masses, brainwashed Mormon sheeple sound as loony as brainwashed Scientology sheeple. Baaaaa on, TBM's. Baaaaa on.
