So both the muslims as well as the mormones are trying their fucking hardest to recruit and convert me.

I get frequent ads for both cults, I keep removing and blocking the advertisers.
Last few times I checked how I get targeted.
Basically the cults like to simply put a city / country and something very general like an age bracket or something like that.
So they just keep popping up which sucks. I wish those smart FB algorythms would learn my behaviour and stop serving these. I have blocked cult-advertisers and their ads so much at this point that it is getting ridiculous.

Not even the JW are this obnoxious and that means something.

I don't have that problem. Maybe I have been too rude in the comment sections  Tongue

Religion needs none of that. - It empowers the lowliest idiot to pretend that he is wiser than the wise, ignoring all the indications otherwise "

I think it is more the religious institutions that suck. The people are just brain washed and not all can wake up from the brain washing. So I wouldn't generalize that Mormons suck in general because they are people. Some people suck and some don't. 
Religious institutions in general suck though - just my humble opinion

This is why I've been hesitant about signing up for Facebook ever since I got onto the internet. I've heard too many stories about theists harassing atheists and solicitors trying to sell you stuff.  Dodgy

Don't forget the huge invasions of privacy that Facebook does with your personal info. Just unreal.

I click on every Facebook advert that doesn't apply to me to screw up Facebook's profile of me.

I end up with interesting combinations.

But now I'm trying to avoid Facebook because they don't do anything about hate speech on their site.

I'm out too. I saw FB and Myspace for what they were, massive data mining operations. I was doing a lot of IT side work then and did not want those sites to define me. I get sent LinkedIn requests too.
