Careful. You're making that sound like a challenge.

You know... I don't think I've seen the word "Mormon" on the written page more in my entire life than I have in the past six months. It never fails to catch in my mind; I see "Mormon" but it registers "Moron". I've come to see that as a fairly accurate misstep. Dodgy
Whether a Freudian concoction or not, the angel who Joseph Smith claimed visited him many times (and the guardian of the golden plates) was named ...

Moroni

Pronounced Moe-roe-nigh, of course, it would have been embarrassing to pronounce it more straightforwardly.

Stolen actually. Joseph Smith made up the Book of Mormon from a variety of sources including pirate stories that he was fascinated with as a kid. Moroni is the capitol of the Comoros Islands.

Citation, for some of those stories, please. That's awesome.

There's a lot of hyperbole on the internet like "John Doe DESTROYS Idea X!!!!!1" But this guy took the time to systematically dissect and eviscerate every minuscule facet of Mormonism, and to incinerate the ensuant carnage.

It's just so beautiful. Heart
