The Republican president nominee, Mitt Romney, is an adherent to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS, aka Mormons). Accordingly, this has sparked a renewed fascination in the American public and media about this religious organization. However, this fascination is not the cause of this post.
A few evenings ago, I was hurrying to complete household chores before settling in to watch Ghost Adventures when I heard the doorbell ring. I opened the door, blocking Highlander from escaping, and standing before me was two young, female missionaries.
Disclaimer: Below are my personal encounters with members of the LDS church. Therefore does not reflect upon anything beyond me and individuals of the LDS church (not the LDS church as an instituation).
