I watched the South Park episode again on the beginning of Mormonism and had a few laughs…still quite funny.
I like the point of the show concerning some of the logic behind the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith’s writing process for the book. It does make me think one must suspend some reason for believing such a book – since we know much of the history of the America’s and how much of what is theorized does not jive. Not knocking being Mormon, just knocking the suspension of logic.
The end of the show kind of ends with the fact many of the people that are Mormon are really quite nice people and although the facts may be skewed, in the end the life they live is made worthwhile by that faith. I really have little problem with that – in fact I can identify. What I cannot identify is the less than critical examination many Mormons would give Joseph Smith and his writings…they kind of play it easy with him.
I don’t. Honesty won’t allow me.
