Lucky for all of us, they were on the other side of the tracks.
It’s the same feeling as when, after 3 months of travel in China, I honestly felt that on a bad day, pushing a stick between the spokes of a passing cyclist would make me feel better about my life.
I did not, in fact, throw a stick between anyone’s spoke, as much as I wanted to (on that particular day).
I would probably not have felt better about my life.
And as a side note, it’s more the proselytizing that bothers me, not the Mormonism.
