The Jaydubs opened an operational base camp (church) in the next town over (5 miles), so we get lots of Watchtower litter all over our small town.

Morman kids are usually nice and will go away when asked nicely. JayDubs on the other hand - it's like I have to show up to the door nude with a erection to get rid of them.
When I roomed with an artist in SF the Witnesses showed up the same time early on a Saturday like clockwork. Eventually she and I answered the door in black robes and white makeup holding dead chickens and black candles.

We invited them in. They declined.

Sam Young, a former Mormon bishop who staged a 23-day hunger strike in protest of the church’s policy to conduct one-on-one interviews with children involving sexually explicit questions, has been warned he faces being excommunicated from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Young, founder of Protect LDS Children, has been a constant critic of the church’s practice of allowing Mormon leaders to interview children and youths alone.

Young believes many of the questions posed in the interviews are inappropriate. It is common for the leaders, often bishops, to ask the children about their sexual experience such as masturbation or viewing pornography in what is known as a "worthiness interview.”

“Fast 23 days. Stand up to protect children. Speak out against a dreadful policy. Work to help the healing of countless kids who were severely wounded behind closed doors. Document the horrors. Apologize,” Young wrote in a blog post after receiving the letter. “And what do you get? Excommunication! After all, we are the Mormons. At least we used to be.”
Okay, this puts the LDS firmly into the creepy creeps/enabling creeps camp. Requiring kids as young as seven to be alone with an adult male who asks them personal questions about sex? There's no excuse for that.

Protesting that extremely inappropriate practice can get one excommunicated, but an armed takeover of public property won't. Got it.
I've heard this bull before.
