worst home teacher ever

Stetson Hallam, a 20-year old sophomore at BYU, was rebuffed by one of the girls for whom he was a home teacher. His response: Catch her in their apartment complex, use a stun gun to immobilize her, then attempt to handcuff her (unclear what he was planning after that). But the home teachee fought her way free from Stetson using a pretty impressive technique: she bit his finger until he agreed to let her go.

My question: Does this count as a home teaching visit?

(Note: I’m not trying to make light of the assault. That is absolutely not a good thing. I just thought there was a humorous element here.)


I'm a college professor and, well, a professional X-Mormon. Thus, ProfXM. I love my Mormon family, but have issues with LDS Inc. And I'm not afraid to tell LDS Inc. what I really think... anonymously, of course!
