Robert Kirby is a humor columnist for The Salt Lake Tribune, and a Mormon. I find him hilarious, which of course should give you SOME indication just what KIND of Mormon he is.

Today’s column was about the Da Vinci Code furor. Among other things, Kirby said:

”The Da Vinci Code” is probably no more punishing to Christian faith than actual past Christian behavior. Hollywood may capitalize on certain unsavory elements of religion, but it rarely comes up with these ideas on its own.

He he he. He cracks me up.

But this, of course, was my favorite.

The LDS Church recently announced that it is deeply troubled by the news media’s failure to clearly distinguish between the compound-building, law-flouting and girl-marrying people we once were and the compound-building, law-flouting, girl-marrying loons in Texas today.

One of these days, they are SOOOO gonna get him.

    The bit I like the most:
    “Whether it’s an individual or a powerful organization, truth usually matters only to the extent that it can be favorably correlated.”

    If all it took to shake my faith was a movie based on a book of fiction……..Well, I don’t think my faith would have been built on a very strong foundation.
