I am in Phoenix at Thrillerfest, but I logged in to post about my experiences here, and noticed I had two very funny comments. I know, I know, my sense of humor is warped. But here they are (I’ve changed the email to protect the, uh, well, the….whatever):

hey im not a mormon but it does sound pretty true. and if you say it’s fake look at scientology. it’s about aliens who came from a different planet. it was made by a sci fi author who said “the best way to get money is to start a religion.” also if their church didn’t send out misionaries why wouldn’t it be true
Dear Bob. Despite the fact I am about to prove you ARE in fact, A) a Mormon; B) Also using the name James; and C) Either schizophrenic or terribly confused–or both–I’ll humor you. At least as best I can.
It actually DOESN’T sound pretty true, and if I were you, I’d be careful throwing around accusations about sci fi authors who talk about aliens from a different planet. While I understand the “LOOK OVER THERE” theory of religion you are trying to use (a theory that basically calls attention to someone ELSE’S weird beliefs so no one will notice yours), your prophet Joseph Smith had some pretty strong SCIFI leanings himself. Why, just consider Kolob. See, that’s an entirely different planet. And Mormons believe in it. There’s also some proof that Joseph Smith taught the MOON was inhabited, but of course, people tried to shut that down by attacking the source.
As far as MISSIONARIES going out proving it’s true, I should point out that Jehovah’s Witnesses also proselytize. Does that mean THEY have the truth, too? You are SOME sucker if you believe that. You are RIPE material for Mormon missionaries… Oh wait. Let’s read the NEXT email.

Saying that all mormons are bad is false. not one of them are perfect no one else is . If a lds commits a sin it doesn’t mean everyone else does that. we are being accused of being a cult or a fake church. Maybe you should do some research. Our church is doing our best to be like church jesus christ started 2000 years ago. remnder people who commit adultary, murder people, and molest children are not just mormons they could be lutheran, catholic, or athiast. Mormons are asked by the prophets tokeep their bodies, minds and spirits clean.
See, JimBob, if you are going to TRY to pretend to be two different people, you probably shoudn’t leave the SAME email address. Not a Mormon my ass. Interesting tactic, but I think I’ll pass. I do not SAY all Mormons are bad. Probably ought to do read a little before you make that assumption. Probably ought to DO the research you tell ME to do. Did the research, got the T-shirt, read your email and laughed my ass off. You’ve been lead astray. YOU do the research. I know that Mormons aren’t the only ones who kill, molest, abuse or cheat. I’ve said that repeatedly. Start listening.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming.
