Mormon, Catholic Doctrines Can Collide

Lawn Griffiths, Tribune

"Longtime Tempe poll worker Mary Ann Hemmingson has signed up to work the polls for the March 11 election. She’ll spend her 14- or 15-hour day in a church, but no longer one that belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

'I never sign up to work at a Mormon church because the board workers there are not allowed to have any caffeine on the premises,' she said. 'That means no coffee in the morning and no Diet Coke in the afternoon. ... You don’t want to see what I look like without my daily dose of caffeine. It’s not a pretty picture.'"
