Mormons on the other hand need to realize they have been culturally conditioned (on purpose or not is debatable) to see the world that way, and cause themselves unnecessary grief when they inevitably encounter criticism.
Yep, and this is why people are called insensitive and irksome for criticising. I don't buy it.

You don't have to, I'm not "selling" anything.

But perhaps you just want something to hate and refuse to consider anything that would potentially get in the way of your hating?

I see your point but it is not my job to make sure that I don't offend people with my views. If I state my opinion and someone gets offended, there is nothing I can do about that. And I'm going to state my opinion. I am much more diplomatic in person but this is an online forum and that's why we post here, to share our opinions.

All I wanted was for people to see my point. I'm just as critical of the LDS church as anyone, maybe more so being that I live in Salt Lake.

Oh, I didn't think you were selling, sorry if I came off aggressive. I agree with the post below mine, that I'm different in person and the internet is a place to share my opinions.
