But it's also often the nature of rumors to be plausible, and while I haven't personally ranked the popularity or lack thereof of churches in the U.S., it's obvious that Mormons have an image problem. In my last column, I listed several reasons why people think poorly of the LDS church. The list generated considerable enthusiasm among self-identified LDS who want to see the church renounce some of its less popular positions, including its abhorrence of gay marriage and its ridiculous and paranoid assertion that the sexual mores of people outside the church pose a serious threat to the spirituality or salvation of people inside it. (Seriously: if your relationship with God is threatened by what your neighbors do in the privacy of their bedrooms or the way they construct their families, it's not much of a relationship.)



Vacuous liberal sexual revolution finger wagging reminiscent of the late sixties and early seventies era. The catastrophic social pathologies that ensued in the wake of widespread acceptance of that philosophy have already rendered This author's animadversions moot.

Catastrophic social pathologies? I remember the miniskirt and later the village people and all but did society collapse and I just didn't notice?

What exactly are these "catastrophic social pathologies," of which you speak?

And, Holly ROCKS! I am seriously such a fan!

She has a good grasp on what is going on in the Utah based LDS church, they should take note!

It is true that the LDS church quietly goes about dispensing significant aid to people in distress around the world. Church leaders provide admirable, religious rationale for why they do not seek attention for these efforts.

Really?

I just took a quick peek over at http://newsroom.LDS.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/, and what do I see?

Was this done with one of those AI engines that string words together in novel ways?

I know you didn't. Haven't I consistently attached the term "vacuous" to most of what you post?

Since you refuse to be intellectually serious, I refuse to take your bait here.
