    They claim to be Christians, no?

    So many people, everywhere.

    "They (Mormons) claim to be Christians, no?"
    Ones I have spoken to do make that claim. However many mainstream Christians refer to the church as a "cult" and don't interchurch too readily with them as a result. Mormons do, however, push for well regulated, clean, and wholesome family life and are quite admirable for their upstanding personal qualities. Like some Christians.

    or Gypsy Heathcliff
    spinning on the
    Catherine wheel...

  • Rich of Observationz,

    My edition of the "Penguin History of the United States" has in the section discussing Mormon beliefs the footnote: "I am not making this up".

    The reason there are so many Mormons in NZ is that they consider the Polynesian peoples to be a lost tribe of Israel, or something like that.

  • Ian Dalziel,

    like no place on Earth...
    Speaking of mixed messages:
    Does anyone else think the new P&O cruises ads on telly might be channelling Scientology's Freewind for Operating Thetans... ?

    just sayin'...

  • Kumara Republic, in reply to Steve Curtis,

    Goes to show, he knew everything and knew nothing.

    More specifically, the cost of everything and the value of nothing.

    And the other major PM in history to have an accountancy background aside from Roger Douglas was, you guessed it, Rob Muldoon.

    unchartered waters?

    And the other major PM in history to have an accountancy background aside from Roger Douglas...

    did you mean FM (Finance Minister) ?
    if not, when was the Reaver General,
    Sir Roger Douglas, PM?

    ...then again, I have long believed PA may span several
    concurrent alternate reality stubs...
    How's it going over your way?
    I hear Shane Jones is PM there now?

    (ps I heartily recommend The Peripheral
    even if William Gibson may owe a debt to Kage Baker,
    James cameron and Harry Harrison.

    Oops, yes, I meant Finance Minister. Mind you, Muldoon was both PM and Finance Minister in his day, which gave him some unusually big leverage.
