Freak out

Well some of you may remember a few years ago when Kylz and Simon were visiting Sydney and we had a chapel meet which ended up with jamming in Hyde Park.

Anyway. We met some Mormons.

I came home this evening to find my dad watching Today Tonight (ugh) and that Mormon there playing the guitar was on the TV, in a puff piece on and Day in the Life of a Mormon. His name is Dennis.

In other news I accidently slammed my head in a car door this evening and it really hurts.

    Eeeeh. That IS a bit weird. It’s like seeing the name of someone you know in a movie or something.

    Is Mormonism popular in Australia? As you might guess, it’s quite popular here in the States, having been founded here.

      It’s not that common, they’re perceived as a cult rather than a religion, but I think it’s a little bigger numerically than a cult.

        Though there’s no real distinction except for a social/numerical aspect between a cult and a religion. Both boil down to “doing what your leader tells you” (in our case our leader is most likely Jesus)

        I read a book last year called kingdom of the cults that argued extensively that there is a difference.

        However, I’ve forgotten what their argument actually entailed, which doesn’t help much here I know.

        Anyway, carry on.

        Unfortunately yes… it was very uncomfortable, especially as he wanted to start debating again.. Eventually I had the table transferred..
