LDS Missionaries Photographed ‘Mocking’ Catholic Church

I post this as I find it interesting that the Church is mainly apologizing for “damage to property” in this article. I can tell you from my experience as a missionary in England where there was plenty of Church of England and Catholic landmarks that it was more common for missionaries to make fun of and mock than to visit with reverence and appreciation. You mainly have 19 to 21 year old boys forming basically a fraternity based on the thought that they are fighting a war against evil and Satan to save souls by bringing them into the LDS faith. I know the Church will most likely take the position that this is the exception and not the rule, I would be willing to wager that if you were to go through most missionaries photo journals finding pictures like these would be a regular occurrence.
This is at a ZONE conference – I would say mocking other religions is the norm not the exception!
