Last time some Mormons talked to me I told them I had seen a good movie about Mormons called "Latter Days". I neglected to mention that it is a very positive gay film that isn't quite so friendly towards the Mormon faith.
That remined me of a real life situation. Sorry a bit long and off topic.
The following occurred when Bush Jr was in office and he had two wars raging.
First I need to describe my co-worker and her husband. They were Bush Jr Republicans beyond the max. She was a Nurse and he was a Colonel in the Army. No matter what you said in a negative slant, no matter how trivial and even if valid and proven, they would deny it or come up with some (strange) reasoning which made your point null and void. These folks were so narrow sited it was bewildering that that were actually successful in life.
One day my co-worker (Mary) was describing the movie her and her husband decided to see over the weekend. She said they looked at the listings and choose one with a patriotic title. She became very indignant at this point and said she couldn’t believe America would let movie theaters show a movie like Fahrenheit 911 (Michael Moore).
I was stunned listening to her to describe about the eggs hitting Bush’s Limo and how they doctored the film to portray our President like that. She said they left after the next 10 minutes. I was dazed and confused but recaptured my poise and;
I explained to her the movie was a pretty big controversy (at the time) and it was all over the news and in the papers. She told me her and her husband didn’t usually pay attention to the news or read the newspapers. I explained had she been aware of current events, by reading and listening to news sources, she might have avoided that blunder. She just waved her hand in my face and made a grunting noise.
I caught this women several times changing the “official work schedule” to benefit her around holidays and her vacations, of course that meant she was screwing someone else. Got me once with it, then I made sure I was there the minute the schedule was posted before any unauthorized changes could be made. YUP, you guessed it, she was a devote Catholic.
