…which means about three minutes, Mormon Standard Time.
Interesting news from Mormonville. In a complete switcheroonie from the Switzerland missionary ban, the LDS Church has pulled the missionaries from the Ivory Coast.
Due to escalating unrest and political instability in the wake of the Ivory Coast’s contested presidential election, the LDS Church is pulling its non-African missionaries out of the small West African nation and relocating them in Benin and Togo, which are all part of the same LDS mission.
This, to me, seems to be a wise move on the part of the Church, as the unrest can only lead to endangering the lives of the young missionaries. Let us not forget they are just kids.
I have some ocean front property in Hilldale I can sell ya….
Judge Dee Benson, a federal judge, has blocked the sale of assets held in the FLDS/polygamous church’s communal land trust while he decides whether the faith’s constitutional rights have been violated by Utah authorities. In the meantime, Warren Jeffs is waiting in a cell in Texas while they decide whether the constitutional rights of young girls and children were violated by HIM.
Quite a conundrum.
Mormons DO have a sense of humor
Set to Katy Perry’s “California Gurls,” the video hauls out all the BYU stereotypes: big hair, leggings and layered shirts, racial diversity ranging from white to “super white” and a nightlife so dull that a game of “Settlers of Catan” qualifies as party-hearty behavior. But it is the legendary fixation of BYU women on men freshly returned from LDS missions that forms the video’s centerpiece.
The only criticism seems to be coming from a Mormon Mommy blog, where they objected to the stereotype of Mormon women. Heh. that, in itself, strikes me as funny.
And that’s your world in a Mormon minute.. or two….
