Hatemongering Mormons

This Divided State reprints an e-mail about from someone in Calgary who recently saw their film:

I just arrived home from viewing your film in Calgary Alberta Canada. I myself am an upstanding tithe-paying returned-missionary relief-society sister and was quite fascinated by the fracas surrounding the visit of M. Moore to UVSC.

I regret that probably very few members of the church took the opportunity to see this film in Calgary, as it really makes one consider the folly of using religion as a justification for contention and narrow-mindedness, war mongering and hate mongering.

It was a good reminder to me to never be too smug about the "superiority" of my religious beliefs and an impetus for me to remain true to my left-leaning political views.

Thanks for your documentary. Keep it up.

This sums up my thoughts exactly.

Annother good film to see on LDS hypocracy is Mobsters and Mormons.

Ditto for me. How can you hate something without knowing anything about it?
