I should note that the correct and preferred term for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is simply "Latter-day Saints" rather than "Mormons," even though the second one is much more common, sometimes even among members of the Church themselves. Some might be familiar with a recent address by the President of the Church that reiterated and clarified these points. (Anyone curious about the details may refer to the official style guide.) I chose to keep the term "Mormon" here since this point in the story definitely takes place before the aforementioned address, and because it's more likely the term that two non-members of the Church would have used when discussing it.
Outside of writing comic dialogue though, I also encourage the proper use of terms. (Though I won't be offended if it takes a while for folks to get used to. Heck, it'll probably take me a while too, and I am a Morm-- er... Latter-day Saint. )

a rush to judgment or wishing not to offend. I know the feeling. there is always that old saying "never judge a book by its cover" that goes in my mind.

@texan1972: Yeah, "never judge a hyena by her choice of beverage" doesn't have the same ring to it.

Woo, here I was going =_= I don't thiiink Shelly is part of the Latter-Day Saint crowd but I can't tell =_=
Nice to have that cleared up.
The thing that's hard for me is how hard I already worked to stop saying "Mormon" and start saying "LDS" and now I have to swap again to "Latter-Day Saint". Sigh. Ah, well.
