In case I have not mentioned before, I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Today, in Sunday School, we had a lesson about righteous governments. The lesson started off pretty well, and had some pretty good discussions. However, as it progressed, some people said some things that made me think a little bit deeper. Somehow, it got to where someone mentioned that “as members of the church, we are in fact a minority”. I thought about this, and thought that this is in fact very true. Since I have been a member of the church my whole life, I have never given that much thought.
Then someone mentioned that there are two most hated groups in America. He said the #1 hated group are Homosexuals. And the #2 hated group is Mormons. I don’t know if that is necessarily 100% true, but I think that we are up there. This leads me to my next point that no matter what the issue is, whether good or bad, membership of the LDS Church or Mormon Church is brought up. When Mitt Romney was still in the Presidential race, his religion was brought up all the time. I don’t know what his beliefs or his church had to do with him running for office. Usually, that is not brought up with other candidates. During other Presidential races, I have rarely heard anyone make a big deal about what religion they were. However, just because Mitt Romney is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, then people don’t want him as President.
