Mormon Church performs Turkey trot
The LDS Church, aka the Mormon Church, aka “the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord, am well pleased,” has transferred its missionaries serving in Turkey to Germany. Here is the church’s statement:
The Church has transferred 15 young volunteers serving in Turkey to Germany, where they will continue their service among the Turkish-speaking population of Berlin. We anticipate these volunteers will return when conditions in Turkey normalize. Our prayers are with the people of Turkey and with our Church members who live there.
We wish to clarify that by “young volunteers” the church means “proselytizing missionaries likely to get their heads blown off for annoying people about religion at the worst possible time and place.”
So, kudos to the church for getting the kids the hell out of there.
It seems we live in an age when an all-powerful, all-knowing god of miracles buys his missionaries plane tickets instead of showing the world what’s what by protecting them where they stand. He seems to have had a policy change since that little matter involving the 2,000 stripling warriors.
