One of the most troubling effects of spending time with Mormons is that my sense of right and wrong, true and false, is melting. I don’t mean that they’ve encouraged me to lie, cheat or steal. They’re very clear about honesty and right moral choices. I’m sure they don’t take part in illegal cockfights or own machine guns without the proper permits. But living in a hall of funhouse mirrors twists everything into bizarre shapes and sizes. That “everything” now includes my mind.
I am A Man of Letters. I’ve been reading lately, and I have found some words I would like to share. Today, “Undercover Mormon: A Spy in the House of the Gods” by Th. Metzger. Chapter Forty-Four: Mormonism Makes Me a Shoplifter.
