    Thank you very much for all of that, including the links! I forgot where we left off before the Sunday strips started.

    I’m an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, better known as the “Mormons”.
    []
    As a result of this, I am constantly hounded by “counter-cult” types who hope to “save” me by converting me to whatever religious system they happen to be proffering.
    []
    It’s been my experience that when it comes to these “counter-cult” types, the more loudly they proclaim themselves to be a “good” member of their faith tradition, the worse of a person they actually are.
    []
    For example, one minister who tried to “save” me thought it was funny to write dirty limericks about religious leaders he didn’t like.

    Well, then fortunately, your type don’t go around the world constantly hounding those you hope to “save” by converting them to your religious system you happen to be proffering.

    That’s funny. The “counter-cult” types who have tried to “save” me by converting me to their religious system by constantly hounding me have been mostly Mormons.

    I am a Methodist. I never met a Mormon I did not like. Nonbelievers, on the other hand, are often insufferable prigs.

    Might want to re-check your history, there.

    Fanny Alger didn’t enter the picture until a few years after the church got started.

    Anyone who says otherwise is working from a bad timeline.

    I’ve never met a Mormon who wasn’t unctuous, smarmy, obnoxious and repellent. Any Methodist I’ve met has been so bland and boring I barely notice them. Something about believing in childish, Stone-Age fairy tales makes a person impossible to take seriously.

    The Constitution and our traditions require us to respect the right of others to their beliefs. It does not require us to respect the beliefs themselves — thank God.

    @StrummerFan

    You are welcome.
    I am glad that my comments re: the order of the strips are appreciated by some. I think they irk some people because I seem so OCD-ed about it. It’s just that Bloom County was one of the very few strips where occasionally there was some coordination between the dailies and the Sunday strips so not having both sometimes gives us an incomplete picture.

    Re: tolerance. Yes, we need to be more tolerant. That also means that I need to be more tolerant. I’ll try.
     
    But let’s not forget that the religions of most people here are ultimately based on the faith that gave us Deuteronomy 13:6-11 so i’t’s not surprising intolerance is so deeply ingrained in us.

    If you would like to skip a line without the [], try < p >, without the spaces.

    @Omnius. This is one I agree with you on.
    As for Portnoy, he hasn’t a Complaint.
