Howard, every group has hard-liners that will damn all who are different from them, but it seems to me that most religious groups have official policies of reaching out and interacting with others. You'll see the Pope meeting on a very friendly basis with Jews and Muslims and Orthodox and all sorts of Protestants and the Dalai Lama - which is proof that all of those groups reach out to others, too.

Mormons get far more than "a bit of criticism or even ridicule."

Oh, and the "tragic results" you speak of are most often the work of lunatics, not the mainstream. You really can't expect a group to control its extremists.
