i'm not sure where you got the idea

that Mormons don't embrace open dialog. We love talking to people about our beliefs, when it's a positive, productive conversation, even when people completely disagree. What do you think a mission is all about? Open dialog.

I don't think people hate Mormons because they disagree with us. I do think there are people who hate Mormons. Just like there are people who hate Democrats, Republicans, Mexicans, children, Muslims, Communists, Baptists, Catholics, white people, Americans.

There are hateful people. No point denying it. I'm not one to whine about it when I'm the recipient because it doesn't do much good. But when someone does complain about it, it might be true. Just because you don't see it or experience it doesn't mean it doesn't happen.
