Bubble: Know Much About Mormonism?

OutofStaterTater said: “They've heard numerous reports of Allred knocking on doors in those areas and visiting Mormon study groups clutching a Book of Mormon.”

Bubblehead: What?!? A candidate for Governor knocking on doors in major cities in the state in which he's hoping to govern? Unheard of! And I'm not sure what “Mormon study groups” your friends are talking about; I haven't lived in eastern Idaho in almost 20 years, but back then, as now everywhere else, the “study groups” were called “Sunday School”, so it would be unsurprising that an LDS candidate would go there “clutching” his Book of Mormon. When LDS people are traveling, they frequently attend the ward where they are on Sunday, rather than skip church. Would you have said Gov. Otter went to Mass “clutching” his Bible?

Question: Do you know much about Mormonism?
