The Mormon church is pretty interesting. Having grown up in a community dominated by Mormons I have been able to gain some perspective on them.
In many ways they are a very closed group not too open to outsiders. But that is not universally true. There is a lot of stratification, call it classism, within the church. Basically poor Mormons and rich Mormons don't hang in the same circles.
One of the things that continues to amaze me, that despite the fact that their belief system is very conservative, they are very accepting in letting their members belief what they wish. One of my very dear friends is as about as liberal as they come, yet grew up in conservative Mormon Mesa, AZ
In many ways the Mormons are not any more unique in their lives than any other major religious group. Go to any smallish town dominated by one church, let alone one faith, and you would feel like an outsider. They take care of themselves and there is certainly nothing wrong with that.
