    •  Well, some of those "silly things" (0+ / 0-)

      are a part of my beliefs. And I don't want to play the "persecution" card (because I don't feel as a Mormon that I am persecuted), but I feel that Mormon beliefs are mocked a bit excessively.

      •  Sincere belief in silliness does not exempt (1+ / 0-)

        it from mockery.  Your best bets for not having your silliness mocked are to either demonstrate that what you believe is not silly, or to stop believing in silly things.

        There are people who believe that a person is formed as soon as sperm meets egg.

        There are people who believe that the earth was created 6000 years ago.

        There are people who believe that the bible is the Word of God, and that therefore bible-based morality should rule everyone on earth, regardless of their beliefs.

        There are people who believe that salt water and fresh cannot mix.

        Mockery is a fairly gentle way to inspire people to reexamine their beliefs.
