Okay, I'll admit that my tolerance for GC has gone down to almost zero in the 25+ years since I was TBM. Out of curiosity, I usually turn it on for a talk or two. But yesterday I only lasted about 3 minutes.
I don't know who was speaking. Some generic, Old Guy in a Suit with a dour experssion. Could've been anybody. He was saying that it wasn't enough to "save" your own family, you are also responsible for your neighbors, blah blah blah...turned off the TV.
What are they trying to do? Are they not annoying enough that they are trying to guilt the sheeple into dragging the rest of us, kicking and screaming, back to their CK? I just had the impression that his talk was going to inspire a lot of TBMs to become even more annoying and preachy than they already are.
I wondered if it would be a good idea to clue these guys in. Maybe I should find out which Old Guy in a Suit this was, and write him a letter.
What are you thinking? Do you have ANY idea how much nevermos and exmos and inactive mos detest having your people come around and try to get us into your cult? We all hate it and you are reinforcing that hate every time we come up against one of your smarmy salesmen. We KNOW what you're up to. We don't like it. If we wanted to be Mormon, we would be Mormon. The fact that we stay away from your buildings on Sunday and enjoy our lives is a big clue.
Do you honestly think that we will only come back to the cult if one of your sheeple leads us by the hand? Is that the kind of Mormons you want? Those with no initiative, no inner drive? Do you actually believe that if we wanted to come to church, we wouldn't be able to FIND it? Have you unlisted your number from the phone book? Have you put a big fence around all the chapels? Are the temples and visitor's centers hidden or locked up? I don't think so. Believe it or not, we are happy people, leading full and meaningful lives - without your crap. Guess what, OGiaS? We LIKE it this way.
Don't call us. We'll call you. (But don't sit by the phone waiting. It likely won't be any time soon.)
