I know a number of Mormons, and none of them are hateful. On the contrary.
This is one of the major problem I have with organized religions. If you talk to members of any group, they seem like reasonable, sweet, intelligent people, and they would never do anything that takes away other people's freedoms or in any way prohibits others from being the way they want to be and doing what they want to do, but then they go and give their money to this group that they trust, and as a collective unit, the dumb **** group ends up taking away rights for gays, women, and anyone else that their religion has a problem with.
The group is a dumb ******* beast, and religion is one of the biggest, dumbest and most repressive.
