MO Lexicon
[author and source unknown]
Many people of the "gentile" persuasion in the Salt Lake City area have taken to calling members of the church "Mo's." Well, the truth is that being called a Mo isn't so bad. While it's not exactly a term of endearment, Mo beats some of the other things we've been called. But to ease the tension between "Mo's" and "Gentiles," and to help us be comfortable with our Mo-ness here is a brief
