Caffeine is forbidden, pre-existent spirits, Missouri is their holy land, the twisted history of John Smith... People don't know jack about it.
Oh, a whole week. Wow. That's really significant. Dick Cheney's "**** you" got more play than that.
The rest of your post is pure nonsense. Mormonism is no more strange or mysterious than catholicism. If people are ignorant about it, it's because they've chosen to be. The reason Romney doesn't talk about it is because nobody has yet been asshole enough to throw it in his face and make him defend his chosen faith.
