|Protect the Image of Mormonism: Kill Evangelicals|
Aug. 20th, 2007 at 12:14 pm
Disclaimer: The title of this blog article is satirical. The Mormon Mentality blog courageously opposes any attempts by Mormons to slaughter innocent evangelicals.
Michael Medved comes to the defense of Mormons in his recent commentary on the movie September Dawn, which will be released later this week. In addition to articulately describing the film’s historical faults and sensationalism, he notes that the film prompts a “puzzling question”:
Medved claims that this bizarre focus on Mormons is the result of cowardice:
And Medved’s right about one thing: However outraged Mormons may be by this film, it isn’t likely to cause violence in the streets — or even lawsuits, for that matter. Even so, one wonders how many people will use the term “courageous” to describe September Dawn director Christopher Cain and star Jon Voight for “confronting” the issue of religious fanaticism.
Perhaps they’d respect us more if the Mountain Meadows Massacre hadn’t been such an isolated incident.
