15% of me wants to see “The Book of Mormon” musical,
while 85% of me does NOT:
Pretty simple which one will win out.
People have strong feelings about “The Book of Mormon” musical. A ton has been written about it. Here are (in my intelligent opinion) 3 of the best insights:
Official LDS spokesperson. I simultaneously admire and envy this man (and his career) so much.
Plus I could listen to him read the phone-book.
The writers of the musical (South Park guys) said they researched the faith for 7 years. Brother Otterson talks about all the things the Mormons actually DID in Africa in those 7 years. Cool!
He is a Jewish writer for the NY Times whom I admire very much. He talks about how only strict doctrinal religions (like Mormonism!) can survive. All other half-heartedly, generic attempts don’t really do any good.
This piece points out that it shouldn’t be acceptable to ridicule Mormonism.
