According to Merriam-Webster a moron is a very stupid person whereas a Mormon is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Utah is great. Not denying it. But the question is stereotypes, no? When people think of great skiing, they generally think Colorado, even though Utah is better in the end. Of course, I'm neither a skiing nor a mountain kind of guy, so this doesn't appeal to me regardless.

I had to chuckle at this. Yes, those are all definitely true, haha.

*Although purely anecdotally, it seems that pretty much everyone I know here who skis is a transplant, and pretty much everyone I know who is a native, does not. YMMV.

Nobody has mentioned “The Morman 500”? (Reference to the fast drivers). However the truth is non Mormans also speed! But, more seriously, many don’t realize that Salt Lake City is actually a liberal city surrounded by conservative cities. A closer look will reveal a high birth rate, but also high migration from other western States, mostly California.

I just realized that I wrote "moron" instead of "Mormon". Yes, that was absolutely a typo. I certainly dont view Mormons as morons. That would make my family get togethers tough because Ive got quite a few Mormons in my family. They actually converted from Islam to Mormonism.

I'd already decided not to let it upset me, but hearing that is a relief.

White people comprise less than 10% of the world's population but you can still find pockets of them here and there.

My family is from Lebanon. My grandparents converted when they got to California and then when my great-grandparents moved, they also converted. My mother was raised in LDS, but converted to Protestant Christianity before I was born. But her brother is still a Mormon and has 11 kids. Of them, 5 are still Mormon, 4 converted to Protestant Christianity, and 2 are atheist. I was never involved in LDS, but Im involved with the Temple of Satan (but you dont hear that everyday!).
