Apple and Mormonism (iMormon?)

This ad was pretty funny, but it makes you think. In Mormon culture, we are encouraged to date and mate with those of "our kind" and we are often judged when we go outside the faith for our relationships. Heck, even friendships are encouraged to be limited within the LDS community. This insular trend included interracial relationships before the last 30 yrs. or so. I can see where shared interests and backgrounds can help in social connections, but that cannot forbid us from associating with others.
