    I met Hinckley because BYU thought I should have a scholarship in his name. I told them I didn't think anything in the gospel could really be known for sure. They still viewed me as pro-Mormon.

    If I didn't care about Mormonism I wouldn't say anything about it. I want it to improve. That's all. Go Mormonism!

    Fry Sauce is Utah - not Mormon.

    You met prophets because you are Mormon.... I think you met prophets because your relatives are Mormon, and probably pro-Mormon. Regardless, you may have met them, but you don't respect them or what they are doing, which is also not pro-Mormon.

    I think SoonerCoug is 100% serious when he says that he's pro-Mormon because he likes fry sauce.
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    WTF do you have against fry sauce, trying to make it a secular "Utah" experience? Have you ever had fry sauce? It is ambrosia, which makes it innately religious. If Mormonism had an official sauce, it would be fry sauce. The fact that you are singling Sooner out about his Mormon credentials based on fry sauce, has me wondering if you are in fact, anti-Mormon.

    This thread gets off track so easily. Let me try again.

    Soonercoug has some of the funniest Mormon stories I've ever read. Mormons love a good humorous anecdote, therefore Sooner is very pro-Mormon.

    Fry sauce has mayonnaise; thus, it sucketh. I am pro-Mormon but anti-fry sauce.

    Do you hate everything with mayo or mayo-like ingredients? Potato salad? coleslaw? salad dressing? Do you put dressing on your salad, sir? How can anybody trust a man who doesn't dress his salad?!? Pro-Mormon? Are you even pro-American?

    Your sheep costume isn't fitting very well right now, Mr. Wolfe.

    The real wolf is mayonnaise. How should I know if mayonnaise has disguised itself sufficiently to deceive my taste buds? A real American does not eat salad. Now, we see you are European, pretending to be American. A real American eats only meat, some fruit, cheese, fowl, fish, and in that vein sushi, grains, starches and chocolate. You have revealed yourself, Frenchie!

    10 And again, verily I say unto you, all wholesome herbs God hath ordained for the constitution, nature, and use of man

    11 Every herb in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving.

    12 Yea, flesh also of beasts and of the fowls of the air, I, the Lord, have ordained for the use of man with thanksgiving; nevertheless they are to be used sparingly;

    13 And it is pleasing unto me that they should not be used, only in times of winter, or of cold, or famine.
    I get it, now. Unlike Sooner, you hate Mormons. Otherwise why in the world would you castigate us as you have. Based upon our health code, you brand us as un-American "Frenchies." We, members of Americas own home-grown religion, "Frenchies." I now have an inkling of what our forefathers felt being driven from their homes by their own neighbors. You can take our fry sauce, our mayo-based dishes, our green jello, but you will never take our dignity.

    So now you're saying those with smokers are anti-Mormon? Those are fighting word, Dude.

    People were bagging on him at the time, probably because of how he gets, and I honestly just wanted to change the tone of things.

    instead he changed his name and got more annoying. It's interesting to read his old posts. In one I remember him talking about how on his mission he focused on just being friendly to the locals because he just wanted them to have a good impression of the church. He never pushed in any way -- the hard sell wasn't going to be effective. But then years later when he decided to become a full time missionary for atheism, suddenly the preferred approach to communicating his beliefs is to become the equivalent of the super annoying TV used car salesman screaming into a microphone, while at the same time wondering why he annoys people. Super odd.

    i think instead of bumping old threads we could probably just command him to depart by an arm raised to the square by authority of the holy melchizedek priesthood and in the name of jc, following which he would hiss and slither away

    Some of you folks take this guy way too seriously. Sheesh.

    Remember when he started a "Take a vacation from the church" thread and everyone turned it into a fun thread about actual vacations? Maybe more of that and less of the vitriol.

    Why do you think I am only referring to this thread?

    Also, not sure you are the best one to make this argument.
