Mormons taking over?

Post by CalvinWYO » Thu Oct 18, 2018 9:42 pm

I heard that now 43% of us Wyomingites are LDS. Maybe those guys wearing short sleeve white shirts, black ties and name tags riding around on bicycles are gettin' er done?!

According to the LDS church itself, there are 67,000 Mormons in Wyoming, and considering that they keep very close track, I'd say that's probably legitimate.

You might want to look for better sources.

Eeesh! This isn't good. I have nothing against Mormons other than they are unknowingly a part of a cult that is probably more dangerous than any other given that it carries an air of being legitimate in many places. The difference between Jim Jones and Brigham Young is about 100 years.

Just because someone is different than you doesn't make them part of a cult. Tread lightly. Remember, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

"Oh noes! People not like us are having kids! The horror!"

Seriously, who cares? Not their fault that fundamentalists aren't popping out kids as fast.

It is no where near 40%. It is at 11% by most accurate counts about the same as Catholics. Wyoming is the most Protestant of the western states and aslo a huge chunk of unaffiliated and non religious which is a point of pride ( 30% or more).
