I've visited with a few mormons personally, all nice people; I dropped by BYU for a few hours, and consorted with former Mormons living in the state of Utah, and finally I read Mormon America, an unbiased seeming account of Mormon life. It makes me wonder if some part of religion is geography/temporality - Mormon is the 19th century American religion, as Judiasm is they believe some weird stuff! african descent exmormon.org
