Interesting things happening in the Mormon News Arena, that I wanted to share.
Andrew Sullivan at the Daily Dish is taking some hits from the TBMs because he posted pictures of the Mormon Garments, or Jesus Jammies, as we like to call them.
Now, Andrew just found a picture that was already online (you KNOW who you are!) and posted it, so it’s not like he went out and took a picture, and scanned it, etc. But still, the Mobots are up in arms, particularly on THIS site.
What I found most amusing about the Common Consent site is they apparently make hilarious fun of the Scientology beliefs over and over again… And yet cannot see the hypocrisy, because the sun is so blinding on Kolob….. (FYI, here’s a fun little site where you can figure out your age in Kolob time. I’m 61.919999999999995 minutes old. )
And in other news, I saw this video a week or so ago, but have been too busy to share it. Since Sullivan was getting attacked, he figured he didn’t have too much to lose, so he posted it on his site. This is a fairly amusing rant by an Australian atheist who turns the tables on the Mormon missionary program.
I also found this site (kudos to Dej for the heads up), run by Jesus’ General, a former Mormon. Using the name JC Christian… Of course.. Very funny stuff. (Warning: the site is called satire. S.A.T.I.R.E. No use in getting your panties in a twist if you don’t like the content.)
The kerfuffle over Andrew Sullivan’s post on Mitt Romney’s magical underwear inspired me to do a weekly series of posts on Mitt’s Mormon beliefs. As the great great grandson of a Mormon prophet, Willford Woodruff, a holder of the Aaronic Priesthood, and an LDS Seminary Bowl champion, I think I’m more than qualified to do so.
It’s almost December, and I can hardly wait for the Jesus Smith festivities to start. How about you?
