A Simple Mormon Math Problem

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:

Michael Otterson’s article.

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!

David Brook’s article.

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.

Alaska Dispatch article

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’

Yes, have seen the Billy Joel musical “Movin’ Out.”  It was good until the kinky dancing started (during this song if I remember correctly), and we all felt REALLY uncomfortable.  I’m all for the first amendment and the freedom of speech AND the freedom of dance, but keep your moves clean, ya’ll!
