Why evangelicals dislike Mormons

Print More

As a footnote to the previous post, I should add that the Logan trip provided some new insight into why Mormons drive white evangelicals–especially Southern ones–crazy. Here’s a bunch of people who represent everything evangelicals aspire to, the ideal evangelical type: clean-cut wonderful looking people, polite, dedicated to family, who don’t drink or screw around, who are churchy as hell–but they have THIS WEIRD RELIGION THAT CLAIMS TO BE CHRISTIAN. The ultimate indignity!

    One of my Evangelical friends (I’m Mormon) described it as similar to what happens when two girls show up at the prom wearing the same dress.
    Same kind of resentment.
