HBO's "Big Love" = "Big Load of Crab Apple Mcnasty Smut" - produced by satan.

http://newsroom.lds.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/commentary/the-publicity-dilemma

have i always had an older-man crush on tom hanks ever since i saw Forrest Gump? yes. do i now? NO. his show 'big love' can STUFF IT. am i handling this and ranting on this in an upright classy way? no. maybe another day i'll handle this issue calmly.

i don't understand how there could be so much disrespect among humans. We are all people. We are all one nation, and all have the right to worship freely and as we choose. Is this not in the constitution? (The forefathers are nodding their heads in heaven.) We have the right to keep sacred practices, sacred. (Nodding, once more.) The fact that the most sacred ordinances are being depicted and re-created on television by narrow-minded screen writers, (HBO the channel of SMUT no less..) makes me want to cry. do you think that there would be more of an outrage if it was a different religion? if their sacred religious practices were being exploited across the television sets of america?

okay.. lets take a look.
1. the protesters during conference?- i can put my head down and walk away.
2. the gay marriage protest on temple square?- same deal.
3. prop 8 commercials depicting mormon missionaries as 'taking rights away'?- ignore it one more time.
4. temple ceremonies on tv?-blank stare.

HBO came out and apologized for this, but is still planning on showing the season finale on sunday without regret.
"Obviously, it was not our intention to do anything disrespectful to the church, but to those who may be offended, we offer our sincere apology," read the statement. "In approaching the dramatization of the endowment ceremony, we knew we had a responsibility to be completely accurate and to show the ceremony in the proper context and with respect," Olsen and Scheffer said in an additional statement issued by HBO today. "We therefore took great pains to depict the ceremony with the dignity and reverence it is due."


this paragraph is an oxymoron. does anyone agree with me? anyone? ANYONE? they shouldnt be showing it on t.v. at ALL. they took 'great pains ?' to depict it? i will show them 'great pains'.
oh but wait.. the producers promised the church that this series isnt even about mormons....ddduuuhhh!
my eye, folks. my eye.


the church is handling this wonderfully, bless their souls. (the link at the top shows an article about it). the church has ALWAYS handled everything with the utmost respect to everyone and always been classy about it.
am i angry? no. okay sorta. disappointed in the world? yes. i think thats what upsets me most. what is this world coming to? i love mormons. and respect all religions. why cant other people respect, TRULY respect everyone else's religion?


In the words of my mother in november, i think she said it best. "One day Jesus will rule the world! And Won't that be an election day to remember!!!"

okay.. so maybe i need a breather. on a happier note, i wish that i could be this girl. So.. dear big love: watch this.

this is an interview with a mormon girl at Harvard University. She is the president of Institute or something of that sort over there..and is in a religious press conference. The lady interviewing her is a total lefty and writes for the washington post.. but thats beside the point. She is asked some questions that i'm sure i've been asked before, but I'm almost positive i didn't answer them with this much knowledge. im serious. take this 21 minutes, and watch it. its worth it.

The title alone made my day. That girl's interview was also awesome.

The fact that they are showing this makes my blood boil. There are some people that are going to be in SERIOUS trouble one day. Don't worry, they'll get what's coming to them.
