What do you Think Would Happen ... if ...?

    if the size of your city doubled and the increase in population was because Jehovah's Witnesses had moved in?
    Or Scientologists? Or Mormons?
    Or any group with peculiar beliefs, prejudices, judgments, and customs?
    Do you think things would improve for YOU personally?
    Think about it. Why wouldn't it?
    We're talking about persons who are totally committed to a set of principles to the point of refusing to compromise. Isn't that...um...good?
    Yes? No?
    Let's fine tune this question a bit, shall we?
    What if your community doubled because of an influx of Orthodox Jews or Wahabi Muslims? How about Evangelical Pentecostals?
    Finally, let's change the premise ever so slightly...
    What if your influx (no matter which group showed up) were all living in poverty? How would that change things?
    How would YOU personally be affected in your daily life? Would prices go up or down? Would grocery stores and restaurants change their menus? Would local laws be modified? How about medical centers?
    People who THINK, ACT and BELIEVE differently than you make up most of the population of the world.
    If you can't tolerate them--why should they tolerate you?
    Sooner or later, you may have to think about this premise. Why not get used to the changes right now, inside your head...and especially inside your heart?

    The overall crime rate in Salt City Utah (home of the Mormons) is 256% higher than the national average, Salt Lake city is safer than 2% of the cities in the US........

    Terry.....this is absurd. You're creative writing skills are what you should be honing. Forget the ifs and go with the realities.

    It's been a while since I last came across one of those if scenarios. Who knows?

    If a million JWs moved in to my city, I'd start a business selling "No Trespassing" signs and I'd make a killing.
