    I dont think it matters. Like color, faith should not be an issue unless you worship satan

    I like Mormons. They are good people.

    When Joseph Smith arrived in Salt Lake City he told his followers "this is our new home". Brigham Young asked him "how do you know?". Smith replied "I know that this is our new home because there's nothing to do here but fish and fuck."

    amusing. Except Joseph was murdered before a single saint stepped in the Salt Lake Valley.

    But then I know you are just kidding around:)

    I think 2/3's of our congress is LAWYERS. Now I have had to deal with Lawyers--as I am a small business person. And I'll tell you--LAWYERS ARE some of the DUMBEST people on earth. Most are completely out of touch with how the real economy works--they do not understand it--and we keep electing them--thinking that because they're LAWYERS they have got to be smarter than us peasants. NOT! And the only reason many of them run for PUBLIC office--is because these LAWYERS are FAILURES in the private sector.
