My hope is that their irritation with us is truth being revealed to them. It is very hard for them to admit the truth about their religion, thats why they have to explain away their founders teachings, and actions.
They say that if you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, the one that barks the loudest is the one that got hit.
When I was an LDS, I did not look upon those who were trying to show me the error of my ways as being evil, I just thought they were wrong. They did not hate me, in fact, I knew that they actually had my best interests at heart. I had their best interests at heart. We both had the same motives-- to show the other person the error of their ways. Turned out, I was the one that was wrong.
I can only thank God that my heart was not so hardened that I was unable to see the truth when God revealed it to me.
