Men on a Mission

Who of us have shut the door on the short sleeved oxford wearing, backpack toting, bicycle riding boys that come to your door spreading the joy of Jesus' word- AKA Mormons?

Now, I must admit my ignorance of this particular faith. My knowledge is confined to mostly what I've learned from watching Big Love- oh hell, I'm Catholic and we've got our own problems!

In the news this weekend, some Latter Day Saints missionaries that posed for a 'beefcake' calendar have been excommunicated from the Church.

Is it just me? I think if these boys carried around the calendars or better yet, lose the shirt and tie, they just might have persuaded some new converts! I know I wouldn't have shut the door so fast!





Can I get an AMEN?

Oh. My. Goodness. The next time those two guys in white shirts on bicycles show up at my front door, I may be thinking a little bit differently than I have in the past. If they really want to excommunicate him, he can come stay at my house.

LOL! Love it! My husband used to be Mormon, and we got to know many of the missionaries pretty well. Sadly, none of them ever came to supper looking like that.

HAHA AMEN sister! We don't have anybody come by our house because we are in the middle of nowhere. Maybe next time they come to your house you should ask them if they have any of those calendars for sale. LOL

I went to school with quite a few mormons and they were almost all H-O-T!

Perhaps their shirts hid it well, but those aren't the folks I recall visiting us...

They quit coming to my house because I was too mean. However, if they'd looked that, I would have put out the welcome mat.

Good find, btw!

You really do have a "thing" for shirtless young men!

Merrie said...

LOL! I always have quite the conversation with them because I want them to know why they won't get anywhere with me. (The eleven books about them on my bookshelf are a good first clue.) But mine never look like this!!
