    The catch is that you must attend weekly worship services of a faith other than your own for the rest of your life.

    What do you do?

    Take it and hope it's not the Mormons!

    My Dad is a Mormon and God bless him, but Mormonism is just plain stupid. I've visited their church on Sundays and was told because I wasn't a member I had to wait outside. Yeah well, fuck you too. That never happened at any Christian Church I've been to.

    I would worship Allah before I'd practice the Mormon "faith". Anything but the Mormons! :lol:

    For the record: After being a Baptized Christian I've become Agnostic. I believe in God but I know no one can really prove His existence. So why argue?

    I attend the services. Doesn't mean I have to convert, and heck, I might learn something.

    Nope. I never quite understand people's obsession with vast amounts of money. It won't make you any happier.... although, according to my Dad... you can be miserable in comfort. LMAO.

    True - but you could still go to other services in your own church.

    Exactly. It all comes back down to perception and paradigm shifts.

    I'd take it, personally. I'd like to let my daughter be a stay-at-home mom if she so chose.

    I can do a lot of good things with 10 mil. Assuming there's no sacrifices going on, midnight rituals where I have to dance around naked, or eating something disgusting, I'm in.
