Readers, I would like to reassure you that everything you read about on this blog is legit. Not to be arrogant, but I am talented enough (and my life is crazy enough!) to not make anything up; Stories, experiences, and encounters immortalized on this blog have actually, LITERALLY happened. I would swear in court. Derrick Clement’s one and only rule for telling a story at The Porch is that it has to BE REAL! I’m not quite as liberal as he and actually have more standards than him (story-telling wise and morally), but we certainly have that standard of truth in common. This blog is real, remember? And so am I.

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.
#we’re all a little curious
#the percentages might change a little bit if someone paid for my theater ticket, airfare, and lodging to NY. I could write a review of it and put it on this blog. just sayin’
I used to think that many (not all) people who supported the cause of gay marriage were disobedient, wicked, and rejecting the words of the prophets
I do not think that anymore.
Still believe others should as well…
