Robert Kirby, everyone’s favorite Jack-Mormon, just posted about a new policy of the LDS religion. Apparently the leadership of the religion are now disallowing object lessons in sacrament meetings. While Kirby humorously mocks this move, I have to ask two questions:
1) Is this true? No more object lessons?
2) WTF? I mean, seriously? Just how regulated is Mormonism going to become? It really is moving increasingly in the direction of a corporation (e.g., no more staples on the right side of papers, only on the left; 2 inches margins on all memos, etc.). So much for charisma…
I can see the new tagline for the LDS religion, “Mormonism: Religion writ Corporatism. It’s not exciting, and that’s the point!”
