I know a lot of people that really qualify as Jack Mormons. Jack Mormons are those who really kinda believe it, but don’t really want to live it, so they go about doing what they want eventually intending to end up back in the jesus jammies and at the Sunday three hour meetings. JMs used to bug me a lot, because I felt it was hypocritical. Either you BELIEVED IT and LIVED IT, or you didn’t.
Nowadays, I’m too tired to even worry whether or not my socks match, so I’m not so concerned with their obvious hypocrisy. I am very good friends with more than a few of them.
Plus, in all honesty, what does it really matter? Hey, if you want to invest in some ugly underwear, and give away your money and time, more power to you. I don’t have enough time as it is. And my granny panties are as far as I am going in the ugly underwear department.
But it leads me to wonder how many Jack Mormons are also just playing the “cultural” game. I mean, if you REALLY believed it, wouldn’t you be living it under the fear of God. You know what happens when he gets pissed off. Say, Soddom and Gommorah? Noah’s Ark? In other words, maybe it’s just lip service to a community that expects so much of its people. Maybe they aren’t really going to “go back” at all, but just want to make peace with family members by making nice and pretending agreement.
What do you think?
