4 Things to Avoid when Meeting a Mormon


1 Making jokes about Polygamy.  Mormons no longer practice polygamy.

2  Buying a Mormon a coffee or beer.  Mormons don’t drink caffeine or alcohol.  Some drink caffeinated sodas.

3  Complaining about the last time Mormon missionaries were at your door.  All Mormons know missionaries, are related to missionaries or were a missionary themselves.  You might be complaining about something they have experienced in the past–but from the other end.

4  Assuming all Mormons are from Utah.  Currently more Mormons live outside than inside the United States.

    Good points. A new perspective on this topic. When I saw the title in a search bar I thought it was more related to how to avoid Mormons, rather than how to interact appropriately with them.

      Good feedback. I’ll think about how to word that.
