Welcome to another fabulous week. BYU fans are up in arms about BYU being fine with running Carl’s Jr. promotions on the back of their football tickets. Because Carl’s is into lasciviousness and ladies. But are we hitting on a bigger issue of tacit endorsements from the Church of stuff that doesn’t really align with LDS teachings?
In other news of outrage, BYU-Idaho President Kim B. Clark has received a whole lotta flack for posting a Facebook update that served as pleasant, erm, “reminder” about dress and grooming standards at the school. Looking beyond the mark? Valid points about obeying the little things having a larger impact? We’d love your thoughts.
The Ogden Temple gets rededicated. We have your coverage.
A Mormon kid travels to New York to intern at Radiolab. His experiences are not unlike those of many others, but read about how his faith was both shaken and strengthened from being forced to truly assess his faith and move past assumptions and lifelong inculcation.
You know all those LDS.org essays we’ve been covering for the past year? Apparently, Salt Lake is none too please with the paucity of exposure they’ve received, so they’ve sent a letter to local leaders reminding them of the importance of these essays.
We have 5-9 things you didn’t know about Mormon missionaries. Yup.
Other stuff: “Mormonism” Google search results are wrong and the Internet wins a victory against the Rapture; the Church History Museum is closing; it’s okay to be a Mormon Democrat; a list of the YSA scenes across the United States; “‘I’m A Mormon” picture week; a fictional Mormon Tabernacle Choir film; and, of course, polygamist ninja housewives.
