If you had a choice between screaming at smiling jackasses at the Westwood LDS Temple or taking on a bunch of ghetto dwellers, which would you choose? But seriously, the LDS Church is singular corporation whereas congregational churches are a many headed monster.

And? If there were not a culture of discrimination, then we would know who was and who wasn't. Every culture and subculture has villains and heros. I've noticed that a lot of biographies of people who would like to be seen as quintessentially American mention a grandparent's ethnicity or minority religion.

I love being lectured on Americanism by people like you.
