Two Mormon missionaries just dropped by The Lamplighter. Nice enough folks. There's a lot of religion I don't know so I was happy enough to listen for a few minutes. Here's what I learned about the Mormons: along about 600BC, God directed Lehi in Jerusalem to travel across the desert and across the seas to the Promised Land. Lehi landed in Central America and was the original ancestors of Native Americans. After Christ's ressurection, He appeared before the Mormon people in America.

Or, something like that. Anyway, it was all new to me. I thought Mormons were a more recent religious organization, started by the writings of Joseph Smith. I should take a comparative religions class or something, but not one of the lame ones that superficially compares Eastern and Western religions -- I want to know all the nitty gritty about Protestants, Catholics, Calvinists, etc.
