I’ve seen both and they were eerily similar. The people were all dressed up like CO’s and elders wives.
Men had suits and women wore long dresses. The buildings were more churchlike but the people were very similar.
I had business dealings with a woman in Utah. The AAA club will tell you that Utah is about 75% Mormon. That’s a crock. It’s more like 60% Mormon and 40% EX Mormon.
Ex Mormons are treated as disfellowshipped. So they basically have their own social/work system to survive in a Mormon world.
Interestingly, Utah has one of the highest suicide rates for teenagers in the country. I also saw an inordinate amount of Gothic teenagers.
There is similarity also in their culture because it is so strict and extremely conservative. They also have similarities in power hungry clergy types preying on the flock. (According to the ex Mormon I spoke with who gave her experience)
