I remember not drinking soda and coffee when I was only 14 yrs old. They would constantly tell me how I was destined to go to Chile and that will be where my mission would be as soon as I graduated high school. I was Mormon for about 9 months or so and now that I look back at it was pretty occultish even from the inside. I remember I stopped talking to my friends and even began getting into arguments with my mom ” title=”Sad” /> . Don’t get me wrong, they were very nice to me but they were just too nice. They made Ned Flanders from the Simpsons look like a demon. It just didn’t feel real. They were very robotic in their expressions. Not sure if the rest of the Mormon churches are like this but that was my experience. But then again, I was only 14. But I agree with you ftstemp….
