Mormon Bishop Posing As Homeless Man Rebuffed by Congregation

by ProgLegs Follow

Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse.

                                Proverbs 28:27

A bishop in a Mormon church outside Salt Lake City has shined a light on the hypocrisy and selfishness of members of his church by dressing as a homeless man and gauging their reactions to him.

David Musselman had a makeup artist transform his face and donned an unkempt wig, fake beard, and glasses.  He then entered the church last Sunday and approached churchgoers to see what they would do.  He found many of them did not practice what he preached:
"Many actually went out of their way to purposefully ignore me, and they wouldn't even make eye contact.  I'd approach them and say, 'Happy Thanksgiving.' Many of them I wouldn't ask for any food or any kind of money, and their inability to even acknowledge me being there was very surprising."

Most of Musselman's church members ignored him, although five of them actually asked him to leave.

Musselman says that the goal of his experiment was to remind people to be more Christ like by practicing kindness.  Sounds like they have a long way to go.
