My dad’s way of coping for the imminent Second Coming is by browsing real estate websites for houses in Jackson County, Missouri so we can “beat the rush.” My life is Mormon.

eaglenebula said: Hi! Can I ask; what are the general thoughts about the book of mormon musical? accept it, resent it? Sorry if this has been asked loads of times already!

I liked your question so much that I decided to publish it in case there were other people wondering the same thing.

First of all, I personally think the play was in poor taste. Making fun of any religion, racial group, culture, life style, or any kind of differing group is a very low form of humor and this play went out of its way to be offensive. However, I do not harbor any resentful or bitter feelings specifically about it. I would never see the show, but I would never write hate letters or post enraged reviews about it. The producers and writers of the show may do what they like; it does not personally affect members of the Church or scar the Church’s reputation.

Many of the claims in the musical are clearly false and dramatized. Anyone curious about the gospel of the Mormon Church should not anticipate to learn any truth about our doctrine from the play. If anyone wants to know about the Church, they can read up on our doctrine and beliefs for themselves at http://mormon.org/. Also, through the site they can order (for free) their very own copy of The Book of Mormon to read and peruse. If you have any Mormon friends, they can easily and willingly give you a book too. 

The Head of Public Affairs for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints wrote a very eloquent article in the Washington Post that puts our view of the play perfectly. It’s worth following the link and reading: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-faith/post/why-i-wont-be-seeing-the-book-of-mormon-musical/2011/04/14/AFiEn1fD_blog.html


Today, I went to my first BYU college party. It was in kind of a sketchy place and when I arrived I saw that everyone was holding the classic, nondescript red cups. I got a little worried. I asked someone what they were drinking and they got this suspicious, guilty look on their face and replied, “Red bull… gonna be up alllllll night.” I still didn’t have some. My life is Mormon.

Today, my mom said I could only go to the prom if I wore one of those out-dated, unflattering, faux satin dresses from beautifullymodest.com. My life is over and my life is Mormon.

Today, a girl on my sports team asked me about Mormons. I told her that we can’t use electricity on Wednesdays or the microwave on weekends. She believed me. After I explained to her that I was joking, I told her that in reality we go to church everyday at 6AM and don’t drink coffee. She didn’t believe me. My life is Mormon.
