W&S vs. BoM update—Wednesday, 9:21 a.m., MST
Well, somebody bought at LEAST one copy of W&S and a few of the BoM. And the BoM now has 266 reviews!! In 24 hours 22 people have “reviewed it.” I was kind of perplexed (okay, I wasn’t. I’ve been around this stuff all my life. I know how it, and Mormons, work.) But I happened upon a copy of this email.
“Please pass along this e-mail to those who you think will follow up on this
request. In Stake High Concil Meeting last week the Stake President made a point
to discuss the Church’s distribution of the Book of Mormon in retail stores as a
fulfillment of the promise that the Book of Mormon will flood the earth in the
latter-days. He said that there are individuals who don’t want the Lord’s work
to go on and are doing everything they can to thwart the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
He said that one particular item that is causing the Bretheren concern is public
message boards and book review forums such as the one at Amazon.com. He asked
that we pass along the request to visit the review boards and message areas and
post thoughtful and uplifting messages and reviews for those who are seeking the
truth. If enough people will post uplifting messages then the anti-Mormons will
get the message and stop spreading their hate. So, as a friend I am asking that
each and every one of you take the time to do something positive in regards to
the attacks on the Book of Mormon. Visit Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com and
write a favorable review to counteract the anti’s who are trying to destroy the
Lord’s church. His gospel must roll forth and with your help it will. Thank you
for your efforts. Yours in the Gospel, Bro. *****.”
Thus, 22 reviews in 24 hours. Can you believe it? I can.
