An Apology to Jeff Lindsay

I have had some fun lately, I must admit, at the expense of Jeff Lindsay, a Mormon apologist. He holds some beliefs that I find kind of silly, and, as I often do, I made fun of them. Here. On this very blog. I know, hard to believe.

While I STILL find those beliefs silly, and will undoubtedly STILL spotlight them, I feel kind of shamefaced for poking fun at Jeff personally. Turns out he’s a pretty cool guy, doing his best to survive in a crazy, chaotic world. He’s trying to offer a guidepost to others because he really BELIEVES in what he is offering up as truth. It’s worked for him, so he wants it to work for others.

Me, I find Mormonism all manner of things EXCEPT for helpful. It certainly isn’t a fit for everyone. I know many people it has harmed. There are probably just as many people it has helped. But, I’m guessing you could say that about almost ANY religion. There’s good and bad.

So, here’s my apology to you Jeff. Just don’t post anymore of those faith promoting rumors, ‘kay? It is JUST impossible for me NOT to respond to them. My eye starts to twitch when I read them. I have the urge to smash my head against the wall repeatedly. I have to take valium just to get to the end of the story. And several hits from the old Vodka bottle. I mean, DID you read the one about the guy who lost his head and all his arms and legs but his GARMENTS protected his torso?!

(Please, please do NOT write me about this behavior. I don’t really have any valium. I DO however have Vodka. Does anyone know how to make a Vodkatini?)
