What do you think? Would you watch it? TLC is pretty close to that any way. I’m fascinated by all the shows with the Browns and the Duggars and the crazy Amish and Mennonite kids.
OK, “Missionaries Impossible” isn’t the best title. Have a better idea?
I’m not poking quite as much fun as you may think. I have gotten into some lengthy discussions with evangelizing Jehovah’s Witnesses, and I have done some mad research on Mormonism. They would both probably call themselves Christians, while most Christians from Roman Catholics to Creation-museum-loving Evangelicals to super liberal UCC‘ers would probably give a hearty “No, no, no, they’re not with us…” when they’re brought up.
I admire the chutzpah of anyone willing to “sell” their faith door-to-door. Even if they do (like royal ass-hats) choose to do it on Christmas day. Yes, that happened to us once at my wife’s parents’ house.
I can totally get not celebrating religious holidays with pretty much no regard as to the events they’re supposed to commemorate. I don’t see a problem with polygamy (yes, I know that’s a very small percentage of fundamentalist Mormons that even Mormons don’t like to talk about) as long as all parties are consenting adults.
I would guess that there are things that we can learn from each of them, and what better way to do it that to let them try to out-missionary each other?
