Here in Salt Lake City the line between religion and commerce collapses as if it never existed. Being Mormon is just part of it, being Human is the other part.
As I study Christianity it becomes another team I can't root for, and so I'm down to three--Buddhism, Hindu, and atheist. Studying each, each seems less preposterous than Christianity, Islam, or the seventh great world religion, New Age.
Mormonism, it turns out, is neither Christian or a cult. It's a mountain of wildernesses to be wandered through without the water required to stave off delusion.
