Let’s start this blog with a bit of a laugh. At the expense of Mormons. I don’t think anyone can complain about that.
This is a skit by Australian comedian John Safran from his series John Safran vs God:
Look, I’m tolerant. I’m the Mahatma frickin’ Gandhi of tolerance. I don’t mind what you do, what you believe, how you dress or who you bang. I just don’t care. I don’t mind who you worship. I don’t mind where you do it. Care factor zero – it doesn’t worry me. Do whatever you want to do. Just don’t knock on my door before midday on Saturday. I’m looking at you Mormons.
A lot of people would say you’re freaks; that your not real Christians. But not me. I think you’re fine. You definitely don’t make less sense than the Catholics, Muslims or Buddhists. However, the Catholics don’t come round bashing on my door on Saturday morning. The Muslims and the Buddhists don’t come round bashing on my door on Saturday morning.
Even the Salvation Army, who rock up with their trumpets, bassoons, tubas and tambourine ensemble, making more noise than Iron Maiden, have the common decency to wait until after lunch. But that’s not for you Mormons, is it? You’re up bright and perky on Saturday morning after going to bed at 7:30 the night before.
Well I wasn’t! Maybe I was out living a little. Maybe I was out until five in the morning. You didn’t think about that did you? I don’t remember that bit in the new testament where Jesus says unto his flock, “go around and annoy the shit out of people by bashing on their door.”
Listen mormons, I fair dinkum have put up with your crap long enough. And seeing as you Mormons seem to be so open to the concept of door to door belief pushing, well, it just got me thinking…”
