Will the Real Mormons, Please Stand Up

Nate's Dad sent this to me and I thought it was interesting:

For those of you who have been watching the news and may have wondered....


Some Mormon women sing...
Some Mormon women dance...
Some Mormon women write scary stories...

Some Mormon women have lots of money and really great hair...
I know hundreds of Mormon women. They do all kinds of different things and live all different kinds of lives.

This woman served as a leader in the Mormon church. She recently spoke to teenage girls worldwide. She encouraged them to stand up to peer pressure, strengthen their families and serve others.
None of the Mormon women I know look like this...

None of them are marrying off their teenage daughters and -- none of them really want to share their husband with anyone.
Furthermore...

Some Mormon guys can throw a ball...
Some Mormon guys yell at the ball...

Some Mormon guys make scary movies...
Some Mormon guys have a lot of money and really great hair...

I know hundreds of Mormon guys. They do all kinds of different things and live all kinds of different lives. This is one of the leaders of the Mormon church. Two weeks ago he spoke about honoring women, especially mothers, and gave advice to husbands and children about how to treat the women in their lives.
None of the Mormon men I know look like this...


The Mormon men I know are honest and hard-working. They don't cheat, smoke, drink or gamble. And TRUST ME....the last thing any of them want is another wife.

Funny John, Ha Ha...but the message is still important to distinguish. If you want to know more about the doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints you can click the link on our sidebar.

Is this how we are being 'kinder, better people"? - President Hinckley's plea for us... I'm not sure comparisons like this are too helpful.

Perhaps by trying to be better neighbors, being a little more patient, kinder... we could show what kind of people the 'mormon people' are. '')

No worries, this isn't a post for debate, I was simply clearing up for friends who visit my family blog that the Fundamentalists are not members of my religion. That there are indeed a number of media highlighted individuals that are everyday members of my church. I find it important to stress that I love my religion and would hate for a typo or misquote in the media to confuse what our temples are used for.
