Is it true that Mormon underwear is indestructible? —flamespeak

If the question is about the material, paula is right, it's just regular material. But I think it's pretty obvious that's not what your question is about. You want to know whether Mormons believe their underwear protects them, right? I'd say some responders are being disingenuous with their answers, but I guess they did answer the question as asked.

I've heard it said that a fanatic is someone who actually believes what their religion teaches. You say some people "have gone beyond the normal religious delusion" in believing the temple garments stopped a bullet or whatnot, but isn't that exactly what they're supposed to believe? How come no one's owning up to this? J. Willard Marriott told Mike Wallace his garments saved him.

you sir, are weird. Imagine asking about someones underwear. Truly it must be a fetish you have.
James B:
You can't have it both ways, sir. The Mormon religion makes underwear a part of its religious practice. I don't think it's weird someone would ask about it. Imagine asking fully grown adult adherents to only wear regulation underpants, and then interviewing them regularly to ensure compliance. Is *that* a fetish?
