  • Mormon in America

    Mormon in America, should have been titled "Mormon and Ex-Mormon in America", the way it was meant to be controversial and sensational rather than objective and unprejudiced. Most of it was fair, especially the Harry Smith pieces and the LDS family feature. But Jon Huntsman's disgruntled daughter? She's not Mormon in America anymore. And you had her speaking for the Church instead of one of the Church's own representatives on those questions? And the gay Broadway performer in The Book of Mormon, not only irreverent but totally skewed and vulgar for laughs and money, at the expense of someone's sacred scripture.. Has anyone else had such a "musical" done about them that went that far? That kid's not Mormon in America anymore. There was so much you could have said that was positive instead of featuring those dissenting elements, to more fairly complete the picture of Romney's church, if that was the purpose. And even showing the Church starting with Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon? It actually started before that in a grove of trees with a prayer for which church to join and a visitation by the Father and the Son saying to join none at the time, so Joseph Smith testified and gave his life for. But next time maybe call such a feature about Mormons something else, if you're going to have Ex-Mormons take up almost half the time Would you have done that with any other religion or church - feature the soured ones who had left the Church for whatever reason as legitimate spokespeople, , who are a very small percentage of members and don't represent the much larger whole? We understand better now how money and bias shapes your truth to make people think this is Mormonism, but slant it with some who have left because they couldn't handle it. I guess a distorted picture is better than none at all - or is it? Seems that's all the Church can hope for from the liberal media like yours and really makes suspect any other features you might do on different subject matter. Doug Curran, Orem Utah
