So the other weekend I had too much wine, and thought it would be a good idea to talk to mormons on the LDS website. I've been thinking about the religion for a while and looking into it. I'm going through a phase of finding my spiritual path, now the thing is I can't really remember what I was saying
I think I talked about how me and my partner aren't married and the fact he isn't religious. Asked if we could still be intimate if I was baptised
I would like to talk to them again but I am so embarrassed how can I get over this?
I would guess 95pc of people talking to them on their website are taking the piss out of them. So they will have heard much worse.
But yes, Mormons don't drink alcohol.
Surely the important thing is not whether you can have sex with your partner if you became a Mormon but whether you believe the stuff about some angel turning up in Utah in the late 1800s with a mysterious tablet or whatever it is they believe in exactly.
OP, do you live in Cambridgeshire? Because I would love for you to become a Mormon and join my congregation.
Don't worry, I'm sure they've heard much worse. I joined the church a few years ago and freaked out some of the missionaries by talking about Wicca, Tarot cards and crystals. I had to marry my long term fiance, because I didn't want to leave him, before I could be baptised. I switched 'normal' tea for rooibos and herbal tea and carried on.
There are some people in my ward who think I'm weird (I am weird, but that's not the point. I was arguing with someone about Evanescence, he thinks they're scary, I disagreed.)
There's a range of Mormons, some are very conservative/orthodox, others are more liberal. I'm very much on the liberal side and I'm terrible at being a Mormon (I aim more for 'decent human being'.) I sometimes wonder what the hell I'm doing here. shrugs
Dunno where I'm going with this, you'll be fine OP.
I personally wouldn’t care less how much I’d embarrassed myself to Mormons. Most are not liberal, no you couldn’t have sex anymore and their track record on treatment women and children isn’t great. Are you into self flagellation? A hair vest will do very nicely. Seriously most people generally strive to leave. Not join. Why not go the whole hog and phone the Scientologists next?
So you want to join a group of people who are traditionally a 'bit' racist, a 'bit' homophobic and a 'bit' sexist as well as believing in a big old sky fairy who is reeeallllly judgemental and has a lot of batshit rules you have to live by or your'll burn in hell , but you're worried you embarrassed yourself...not an issue at all, it'll be a lot more embarrassing if you join their gang, plus they will have heard allsorts before, you'll have to be a lot more resilient than that if that is your 'path'.
