I worked with several LDS back in the 90s.
They seemed nice but were racists.
Said they didn’t associate with any blacks, Latinos, or gays in their church and wouldn’t know how to act around any. They were never mean to anyone but they just kept to themselves.
I always thought that was odd.
Not saying all LDS are this way now...30 years later...I’m sure the church is much more liberal and accepting of others now.
Enjoy your trip to East Tenn.
Well that does not apply to me, my wife is Asian, and I have many friends who are non-white. I do not judge based on sexual orientation. BTW, I was born and raised in Knoxville. Neyland is 15 minutes from my home luckily. GBO!

This was over 30 years ago.
They said their church didn’t allow blacks, Latinos, or gays. Who knows if they were telling the truth. I don’t know much LDS history.
And I in no way assumed you were racist.
Glad u get to come home for a game. Enjoy 😉

Wtf? Still not very accepting of gays (and few churches were in the 90s), although relations are much better. Probably half the church membership is Latino

We take our road games seriously. With alumni around the nation its easy to get support wherever we go. Any BYU fan living within 3 states of Tennessee jumped on the opportunity to see the Cougs over on that side of the country.
I'm well aware. I'm a jack mormon who went to BYU (Tennessee fan but I like BYU). I was telling people ITT it would be a big crowd and some guy was saying no way 10k.

Oh, it’s a “fact” that only one religion is right?
