Most people today still do not know a Mormon themselves. They hear slanted stories from others and create their own impressions. My wife and I were traveling on a bus from Prague to Nuerenburg last year, and the couple across the table from us enjoyed our conversation immensely. We were talking and laughing and having a great time together, until it came out that we were Mormons. The conversation stopped briefly, and the stares became more searching from them. Once the shock was absorbed and they realized we were not going to show our horns, that in fact we had none, our conversation continued. We are friends still today, but that initial revelation was interesting. They gained a new respect for a group they had previously misunderstood.
