Default My Goodness. Mormons less favorably viewed than Muslims and Atheists among Millenials

The anti-gay, anti-woman perception among Millennials will not dissipate easily. It is almost as if the perception has returned to the days of polygamy, where members appear weird and out of step with the cultural wars.

I would like to see what the trend is with millennials. It may not be that they think worse of Mormons, just that now they are thinking a lot more of atheists and muslims.

It's surprising how few people actually know a Mormon.

It is still a regional religious group. Try finding one in Wisconsin, New Hampshire or Maine.

With the Church's strong anti-gay, anti-woman stance, it will be hard to gain any momentum among any group.

It is ironic that Muslims, who are very similar to LDS, are better perceived among several groups. Prop 8's damage is irreparable.

Liberals love Muslim (who hate gays). But liberals hate Mormons (who also hate gays).

It's kinda funny and ironic.

Are Muslims more liberal than Mormons?

That's why Dinesh D'Souza said: Have a gay couple to go to Muslim baker for a wedding cake.
