    Reading a book written by the wife of the Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem circa 1914. Found this passage rather amusing…

    “The only form of creed which did not take hold in Palestine was Mormonism. Two Mormon missionaries arrived in Jerusalem in 1914, intending to found a branch there. But Mormonism had no attraction to offer to the Moslems, whose own creed allows them four wives at a time (though as a matter of a fact few have more than one), or the Jews, with whom divorce is so easy and so common that they experience all the excitements of polygamy without any of its drawbacks. They made one ‘convert,’ who promptly left the fold on discovering that his conversion did not carry with it any material benefits.”
