The Mormons Are Coming!

I've just had a visit by two young men who have come to spread the word of Joseph Smith, aka The Book of Mormon. Initially I thought to shut them down and turn them away, but then I thought, "hmm, I don't know much about the Church of Mormon, this could be a learning experience." So I now am the proud owner of "The Book of Mormon", complete with highlighted passages selected by Elder Shields for me to focus on. They will be emailing me in about a month in order to set a date when they can come back and speak to me about what I've read.
I think it will be an interesting appointment, to say the least.
Now, to get reading...

You know, they've come to my home too. They were really very nice, and in a way, I respect the fact that they aren't just closet or Sunday morning Christians. They get off their butts and get out there and bug the crap out of people! I don't agree with their points of view, but I respect that they walk their talk.

It surprised me, they actually GAVE me a copy of the Book of Mormon. Initially I was just going to discourage them but realized that I know close to nothing about Mormonism and, in the interest of scholarship, would like to learn more. I just hope that they aren't disappointed when they find they haven't discovered a potential convert.
