Fellow Tribes?

To a Mormon (even a cultural Mormon), the parallels between the Mormons and the Jews are totally obvious. To a Jew? Not so obvious.

It hit me the other day that perhaps it might be amusing for Jewish people to hear about the Mormons' affinity for them, and ask them what they think of it.

To that end, the kind folks at Lubab No More have allowed me to write them a guest post My Tribe.

Have a look, and see what you think! :D

I get it. It's similar. We always thought of ourselves as similar to Catholics, or occasionally the Amish, but Mormons fit too. It's just that y'all tend not to live in the same places Jews do. :-)

Hey J.A.!!!

Good point -- a lot of times the difficulty in seeing parallels is just a question of geography. Another reason why I love the Internet!!! ;^)
