Today I’ve stolen(with permission of course) a guest post right off another blog: letstalkaboutreligionandpolitics(ooh, we’d love to see you there!) Ruth Mitchell is a quilt-tying, cookie baking, secretly novel-writing mother of 4. Happily, her husband’s schooling has landed her in beautiful Southern California where she can see the spires of the San Diego Temple from her front yard.
Tonight HBO has decided to make more mammon by desecrating religious ordinances on national television. They plan to show parts of the Mormon Temple ceremony on a show about polygamists. To members of my church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, this news is like hearing about the dead body of a loved one being dragged through the streets.
