Boise, ID — The Mormon church has been around since the mid 1800’s by Joseph Smith under questionable pretenses. It has since grown to 14 million members around the world. The Mormons use all manner of recruiting tools to save souls.
Meg Simon, a public relations assistant for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, came up with the idea to use bathroom stall graffiti to reach a broader audience.
“It has really opened doors to people’s hearts,” Meg spoke to Gish Gallop over the telephone. “The scripture is written right there between the drawings of penises and phone numbers”.
We spoke to truck driver Bill Tesh at the Boise Stage Stop, a truck stop in Idaho. Bill was saved and joined the Mormon church after reading the scripture on the bathroom stall.
“I was doing my business, taking the Browns to the Super Bowl, when I looked up and saw it. It said, ‘Jesus Loves you, repent and be saved'”. Bill got tears in his eyes, “Right there next to a picture of a vagina, it hit me right in the heart. I dropped to my knees right there and praised Jesus, I have a new purpose in life”, Bill continued, “but I cannot figure out what the hell smells!”
As Bill walked away, we could see the brown streaks of his repentance on the back of his jeans.
