I think I would categorize this one in the realm of potentially bad ideas. The LDS church is beta testing a new feature on their website that allows you to chat with a missionary. beta.mormon.org . I’m all for expanding evangelistic efforts onto the internet. It’s a powerful tool and it shouldn’t be ignored. But I think this one might be too tempting for disaffected Mormons and Anti-Mormons to pass up. For an example of what I mean check out this chat transcript.
What do you think. Good idea? Bad idea?
