Professionally (commercial financial analysis and extension of credit), so many Mormons had lied, misrepresented their businesses and misappropriated funds on accounts that I'd handled, that I begged my boss not to assign the Utah territory to me. He declined my request leaving me to either decline the non-AAA businesses and thereby failing to meet production goals or approving risky business. As I couldn't do the latter, the really nice field guys went around me and racked up a million dollars in losses in a year. Guess who was let go?
They do get creepy on the "niceness" factor, but so do a lot of other churchy people
Rings a bell with me for militant Evangelicals.
"In the world but not of the world". Can produce very creepy results.
The Mormons actually seem sincere about it, to the point of coming across as cyborgs or something.
Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
The Evangelicals can be ignored, because you already know they think you're going to burn in Hell, and they'd do their best to get you there quicker
Nope. The militant ones know it's their duty to try to save you.
Amazing to see the numbers of early 20's young men in black suits accosting people in the streets here.

I don't think there's much of a correlation between religion and business practices, or personalities.
To your face they're all nice and smiley, but they're the most ruthless money grubbing bastards behind your back

I had to do some research at the Mormon library in Salt Lake City on a couple occasions, and on one of them, a lady almost drove me crazy with her "cursing" which consisted of a constant stream of such things as "oh, frog whiskers" and "well, daisy drops and do-dads" and "oh, shivering shishkabobs." I wanted to kill her.
