Odd little Mormon leftover
While setting out the lawn sprinkler this morning, noticed a folded piece of paper in the street. Took it in and unfolded it. Clearly not meant for outsiders, not meant to be placed on doors. I haven't seen any Mormon missionaries around lately, so this must have been accidentally dropped by an ordinary Mormon, perhaps a youngster.
It's two pages, originally stapled but the staple was pulled out. Nothing weird in the questions, no Temple Underwear. Mostly regular Christian stuff except for the Presidential revelations vs individual revelations. What's interesting is the form
, not the questions. This is a hardass test, not a casual survey. Mormons have STANDARDS.

Later thought: The revelation question is sharply distinct from most regular Christians. Protestants believe firmly and consistently that revelation ended with Jesus. Rome pretends to believe the same, but makes the usual sneaky exception for the Pope when he feels "infallible". Pentecostals believe firmly and consistently that everyone can receive God's word. So the Mormon approach is more like Pentecostals. Everyone can receive revelations, but the President's revelation can affect the whole church because he's in charge of the whole church. Strictly logical.
