I work in a U.S. Joint Service Crisis action team. As part of my duties I sit in close quarters and share a work station with a representative of the personnel division. He is a mormon.
Yesterday he got off the phone all excited because his son was given his mission assignment in Provo, Utha (apparently Utah is attracting alot of non mormons). After a polite “thats great” from me he continued to want to talk about this. I being Catholic did not want to because I disagree with this practice and the Mormons religion as well.
I had a heck of a time turning off this conversation; have any of you had similar experiences and have been able to find a way to avoid this while not making the individual upset or mad?
