They would if it was positive.

"hey what a nice smile you have"

"your suit looks awesome'

"hey girl you have really pretty eyes"

just imagine you would think there would have to be one positive case of tourette's in this world maybe that is you.

Dumpy, I'd go with the sense of humour, there. It's the sort of thing we do over here ...

Exciting news on the beard front, so far it seems to be free of greay (this is a new word to cater to our US cousins). There may be two hairs - one on either side of what we will, for the sake of argument, call my chin - due to be introduced to the wonders of tweezerville but they're getting the benefit of the doubt for now.

How about a beard and a South Park T-shirt?

Mormons aren't usually the type to cast the first stone. Especially over something as small as facial hair. In fact, many Mormons have facial hair. I know a few! It's not a big deal in the church.

I find it hard to believe that Mormons are treating you poorly because you have facial hair. Mormons are taught from when they are 2 years old to be kind to everyone and set a good example for the church. I'm not saying that there aren't a few bad apples, but the majority of Mormons will be kind or at least tolerable of others that don't share their faith. Besides, being rude to someone isn't the best way to go about converting them.

If the skiing is worth dealing with your personal problems with Mormons, then you have nothing to complain about. If it isn't, then I agree with the pretty waitress. Colorado isn't too far away.
You obviously haven't ridden Catholic school busses in Utah, or have your teenager not allowed to date another because they aren't mormon. The discrimination is there although I have not seen the extreme the op mentions. It took me many years to adjust to living in Utah when I moved here due to the culture and the weather (I came from Phoenix, AZ). Now that I finally learned to laugh at it all I am not sure I would live anywhere else. If the op doesn't like the LDS, then ski in Utah on Sunday's or ski in another state.
