Huzzah! A couple new questions in the inbox! Both are anonymous.
Can you find the postsecret with a picture of the SLC temple with the words “I am so afraid God is sexist” or something of that nature written across the front and post it? I saw it in a postsecret book confessions on life, death and God a few years ago. One of my favorite LDS postsecrets.
It sounds like a good secret. I don’t have the book, but if someone sends me a scan, I’d love to add it to the collection.
What is your theory on why Mormons are so cheap?
-a sometimes cheap mormon
It’s because Mormons deeply believe in avoiding all forms of consumerist society.
eh, wait… no, that might not be it…
It’s because they have so many babies.
No, for real, though. Are Mormons any cheaper than everyone else? I dunno. Maybe after they pay 10% of their money to the church as tithing they don’t have as much money left for discretionary spending as other people. Maybe they just look cheap because they never have bar tabs to pay. Or maybe it’s really the babies. Or maybe because a good portion are single-income families. Actually, I think there really is something to the anti-consumerism idea.
What do you think readers? Are Mormons cheap? If so, why?
