"What does it mean to say Mormons are peculiar? Mormons are three things
simultaneously: active, distinctive and cohesive," Campbell said.Let's not pretend it doesn't also, perhaps mostly, mean
"elite", "chosen" (D&C 121:45), and more righteous and
worthy than others. That is the part that is arrogant, off-putting, and
offensive.If you want my respect and the respect of others not of
your faith, you must find a way to stop this judgmentalism that treats all who
do not have "a testimony" as unworthy, sinful, hard-hearted,
untrustworthy, second-class humans.
I find that to be true at times. Most'Mormons' I have met who are that
way are what I call 'Utah Mormons'. They are living in their own
world. I have not found that to be true in other places. You are posting from
Provo. LOL Com visit my Ward.
