Religion - which one?

Which one?

At first I couldn't understand why this poll had been flagged - then I re-read the first line.

I live in England and I encounter Mormon missionaries all the time, and without exception they're always American. And yet the Jehovah's Witnesses I encounter as doorstep evangelists are always English. This puzzles me because I thought both religions originated in America. Is there a rule that if you're a Mormon you have an obligation to do missionary work outside your country of origin?

Actually I thought it was flagged because it offered such a weak choice. Being a Humanist I don't tend to think of any one particular religion as they are all totally wrong and in some cases - notably christianity, although all the judeo christian islamic religions cannot escape blame - downright evil

This poll excludes certain religions for some reason. ???? Do you have prejudices against some? Do you consider Mormons as not being Christian? Do you view some religious views as invalid without knowing about them, fairly? I wonder why the poll was created in such a way that had only certain religions represented. This is the problem with designing a poll, sometimes it appears like you are saying or trying to say something by just asking a question. Some polls are obviously written with bias wording and these should be seen for what they are. I only raise the question because it seems as if the poll's questions were supposed to send a message.

Also to answer some of the postings regarding Mormon missionaries and Jehovah Witnesses. Jehovah's Witnesses proselyte in their own country generally. Because everyone in their Kingdom Hall is suppose to proselyte in their own city, ETC. Mormons, officially called members of the Church named The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. If you want to ask questions such as those posted try this website: http://mormon.org

I hope that this helps with your poll. I hope that this helps answer questions that were posted.
