I'll start off by saying that I believe in freedom of religion and I judge everyone as an individual. In high school a friend of mine was Morman. That much being said.... A relative recently converted to Mormanism. This relative has been through many religions, so I'm not too sure this one will stick. But in the meantime it's at least entertaining. I met the two young men responsible for converting my relative, two guys in their late teens. Okay. So, I respect freedom of religion and freedom of expression. And I try to judge people as individuals. But that's a two-way street. I have a right to my own freedom of expression, and I'll exercise that freedom by saying that I don't like the Morman religion much as a religion. Individual Mormans I have liked, but the religion itself I find bizarre to say the least (something about having a planet, the ummum and the thumbum, or whatever, the robotic goody-two-shoes family units). But I tried to put this all aside as I introduced myself to the young men, "missionaries" as they call themselves. I introduced myself and then asked their names. They -- these young men in their late teens -- introduced themselves as "Elder so-n-so" and "Elder so-n-so." Not Aaron. Not Jason. Not whatever their real first names are. But "Elder so-n-so." These young boys more than a decade my junior, boys who may or may not yet have pubes, expected me to refer to them as "Elders...." I said to them in shock, "People refer to you as 'Elder'? How old are you?" Poor boys. They did get a little uncomfortable after that. They are supposed to be big men, but they're just little boys. At any rate, not a fan of the Mormon religion. But then I think all religion is mostly just indoctrination. Any thoughts?
