ELDER PRICE: Well, well… If it isn’t the SUPER MORMON.  Spreading “the word”?! Making more –  BRAIN WASHED ZOMBIES?! How is it YOU converted all those people into Mormons! You get everything you pray for. YOU’RE doing everything I was supposed to do. Doesn’t that seem a little telling to you?! The universe doesn’t work the way we were told!  When I was nine years old… My family took a trip to Orlando, Florida.  It was the most wonderful, most magical place I had ever seen. I said to myself “THIS is where I want to spend eternity!”  My parents told me that if I made God proud, and did whatever the church asked, in the Latter Days I could have whatever I wanted.  So I WORKED and I WORKED.  And even when I studied Mormon stories and I thought, ‘That doesn’t make ANY SENSE’, I KEPT WORKING because I was told ONE DAY — I would get my reward!! Planet Orlando! But what do I have now? I can’t even get a ticket home…
