Why is it that all of the controversy and hullabaloo over "Mormon" rumors just amuses me?
I recently read a blog by a "friend of another faith" who is fascinated, in a good way, with "Mormon Mommy Blogs." As much as the article interested me, I saw "Comments 316" and my heart started to pound with excitement: "This is going to be good."
And I was right. Not even five comments in, I saw someone posting a novel passionately declaring that LDS folks do not practice polygamy.
Every time something new hits the media regarding anything to do with the LDS faith that is not issued directly through the Church, there is a hail storm of violent verbal and written objection from defenders of the faith. I'm surprised I haven't heard more regarding "The Book of Mormon the Musical."
I've probably confused some of you. Why does this craziness amuse me?
Just live the faith. Live it. Be an example. Show people the Christ-like love and joy inside of you that has come from the gospel. Having an online spat with some overly-opinionated anonymous commenter on someone's blog isn't really going to do anything but give you an anxiety attack and the commenter a smug, self-satisfied smirk.
