Minnesota Atheists Monthly Meeting: Mormonism
Meet the atheists of Minnesota Atheists this Sunday at the Ridgedale Library at 1PM for our monthly meeting. This month’s topic is rather light and informal because the American Atheists 34th Annual Conference is taking place next week in Minneapolis. So, not to steal the thunder of Richard Dawkins, I’m giving a short intro to Mormonism. If you were a former Mormon, have Mormon friends, or were ever curious about Mormonism, here’s your chance to go a little deeper into the strange world of Endowment Ceremonies, Temple Rites, and Celestial Marriages.
What is the deal with “magic underwear,” not drinking coffee, and polygamy? Hear some history about this home grown American faith known as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is an outsider’s perspective, as I’ve never been a Mormon, but have met with missionaries to hear their tale, so you don’t have to. If you’ve ever been the least bit curious about Mormonism, this presentation should answer your questions without having to ask an actual Mormon and risk getting sent to “Outer Darkness.”
Join us for dinner at 4:00 PM at Wanderer’s Garden Chinese Buffet just down the road from the Ridgedale Library.
