Mormons Irresponsibly Gathered in Utah Airport to Greet Returning Missionaries

Last night, 1,600 Mormon missionaries returned to Salt Lake City from their posts in South Korea and the Philippines in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

That’s good. That’s smart. They shouldn’t be there even when there’s not a pandemic but that’s another story. The plan is for those missionaries to self-quarantine for the next two weeks.

And yet when they arrived home, all social distancing warnings went right out the window. Their families greeted them at the airport without any awareness of how that’s precisely what the virus wants.

Even the Governor and Lt. Governor were thinking, Mormons, you’ve got to be kidding me.

For what it’s worth, airport officials said they worked with the LDS Church to limit family members to “two per missionary” and they were told to wait in their cars. The Mormons just ignored those rules.

So those missionaries came home due to the outbreak, only to put themselves in more danger. Heavenly Father doesn’t offer immunity to COVID-19.

If the Church can’t control its own members, then it shouldn’t be telling them to go overseas to spread a different kind of virus.
