Ladies, do you remember these lovely object lessons? Black folks, does this account sound familiar? (Books like this one may be conveniently forgotten about, but good luck ever seeing a repudiation and apology…). And if you’re intersex? Then where do you fit into the plan? Hell, kids in general get a bit of a raw deal. Can you be surprised if post-Mormons are doing a bit of processing?
In Mormon studies, we got some tips on how not to talk to Mormons (if you want a straight answer). Alex provided some interesting analysis of the Articles of Faith, and Mithryn provided a fascinating look at how early Mormonism is like the universe of Harry Potter!!
Of course mo and fo-mo bloggers also like to post about life issues, triumphs, delicious cakes, etc., that are — at most — tangentially Mormon-related! The Girl Who is having thoughts, Daniel is enjoying success in fonts and spelling, whereas Kuri excels in vocabulary. Aerin doesn’t want the stress of birthday parties. Dan Pearce has a sort of micro-loan program for people who are belly-up broke. Roger Hansen was hanging out with prisoners in Uganda while Lynette compared missions and mental hospitals.
Crazily enough, those last two are related to what I was doing this past week!!! You may have heard (if you read this blog or my personal blog) that the post-Mormons of Switzerland (including me) went on a pilgrimage to London to see The Book of Mormon this past Wednesday. It was fantastic!! Read my account here. If I may go into testimony mode for a minute, I am just so grateful to the member of our group who had the idea to do this trip and organized the whole thing! Thanks, J!!
I hope the rest of you had a great week too!!
