I never said anything even remotely similar to what you're saying, but I know thats the fault of when you wrongly assume, as you've done in your entire post. Use reading comprehension next time.

So then be specific as to what you(or others)are judged about in the St George area

O.K Westcoast....I can give you many specifics as judgemental in St. George, for a few:
1. when we first moved here, older man in KFC told us the reason St. George is so nice is "look around", you don't see any blacks, or hispanic do you?"
2. Client told me he was disowned at 18 because he refused to go to church (LDS)
3. neighbor made friends with another neighbor...they worked out together, until her bishop told her it would be better if she found someone from her ward to work out with.
4. over heard realtor in Albertsons say, I refuse to sell anything to "those" people from California. (Bet she isn't doing any business here now).
Want more....too many to list.
That being said, it's changing here ....Thank goodness!

I'm one of those evil alcohol drinking (mostly wine with dinner) childless degenerates that some fear so greatly. I'm also a business owner and productive member of society. I have lived in the nice part of Cedar City for most of the last 15 years.

I'm acceptable company to a number of LDS. The people who would sneer and attack or would call me names if I subjected myself to them, I avoid, and as long as they avoid me, we're all happier.

A lot has changed in the last 15 years. When I moved to southern Utah, I remember having debates with people who believed that all insomnia was caused by guilty conscience for bad deeds, recycling and conservation of any sort was unAmerican and communist, and mental illness was a moral failing that one could pull oneself out of "by their bootstraps" and that those who "gave in" to things like schizophrenia were just "too lazy" to lift themselves out of it and should not be helped. Many of those views have changed, so saying "I have insomnia" is no longer a potential indictment of your moral character, at least you don't hear the accusation made publicly. When I say that change is good, these are these sorts of changes that are good. Having recycling bins available if you want to use them is good. Having people treated for mental illness instead of being attacked for lax spirituality is a positive development. I could go on.

My ethos is- if you're not hurting anyone or infringing on their constitutional and legal rights, you should be left alone to live in the manner that you see fit.

And any realtor here who refuses to sell to those "outsiders" from California is probably what we call "bankrupt" or "out of business" by this time. :P

Cedarite, We are in the same boat as you. Couldn't agree more and thank you. Great ethos....same here. Guessing you are right about that realtor....at least I hope since we don't need that mentality here! And yes we have LDS friends that don't judge so not a problem (mostly younger).

Just a clarification about not knowing what goes on in St. George.

I have lived there and I did not like it.
The world *clique* was invented there !!

So I do not live there anymore, never want to live there ever again, and I am happy where I am now.
Salt Lake City suburb !
