Today, I was hanging out with a friend out of state. He had some friends with him and we were all having a great time, until they found out I live in Utah. They instantly assumed I was Mormon and started to act weird around me. This is a frequent occurrence. FML

start asking them if they would like to hear about our lord and savior Cthulu

It should be as simple as: "Are you mormon?" "No" " Ok cool" Your friends are idiots.

Some people are just ignorant. Sorry you have to deal with that Op.

Once I tell someone I'm from Utah, the next thing I have to say is "no, I'm not Mormon."

I moved from utah six years ago and am graduating in 4 months, and kids are still asking. My first day as the new kid I stood up in class and introduced myself, and the first question I got was "how many moms do you have?"

All hail Cthulhu.

I hate how some people immediately judge you just off of the state you're from, sorry OP

I occasionally see that happen here on FML. Especially in circumstances where the OP is from a southern state.

I hate how some people immediately judge you because of your religion

I know that feel. < is from N. Jersey.

Fuckin stereotypes

Because 100% of the people of Utah are Mormon. I seriously don't get people's logic >.> bet they'll vote for trump too.

no they already voted for obama hussain

Even those of us that are Mormon can be cool too. It drives me crazy when people blatantly stereotype.

it is over 60% mormon. So over 50% chance you are right. Grew up with alot around me in my area of Wisconsin. Good people and good friends. None gave a shit if I didn't follow their rules and none tried to convert me from atheism

It should be as simple as: "Are you mormon?" "No" " Ok cool" Your friends are idiots.

Exactly! And even if he'd said yes, I don't know why they'd start acting "weird" around him. They clearly liked him and found him to be a decent and respectful person before, so I don't see why that would suddenly change. It's like the equivalent meeting someone and finding them totally cool and nice, but then suddenly treating them like a terrorist once you find out they're muslim. Pretty stupid...

It's not quite the equivalent, but same premise. Acting a little odd around someone isn't the same as treating them like they're a terrorist.

Well when I meet a terrorist I start acting kinda weird.

Still, at least you don't get the typical ridicule most people from NJ get when they say they live in NJ

Yeah, try saying your from Chicago nowadays. To hear people talk we leave the house everyday in a kevlar suit.

at least you aren't being called a potato for being from Idaho.

I'm from Utah myself. I always get a barrage of questions. I know how you feel!

You could have made a joke about it. "Oh you're from Utah? You must be a Mormon" "Bitch, did I show up by knocking on your door asking if you've heard about our Lord and Savior?"
