Mormons to Mecca? A most radical idea!

Mecca during the Hajj
During a conversation some months ago, my oldest son suggested that Mormons, since their church is having increasing trouble being taken seriously these days, ought to join in with Muslims to set an example by praying with them in Mecca for peace and brotherhood. I thought it was a great idea! Of course the Mormon church institution--the corporate church--would never consider such a thing. But brave, well-motivated and earnest Mormon individuals (and Muslims) could take the initiative. Of course, they would have to value love and justice over the fears and dogmas, which are taught by most religious traditions, including theirs. Naive? Yes. Impossible? I don't think so.
