That's because while they may have a little fun with the Mormon faith, Matt and Trey don't bash it, and probably have done more to promote it in a positive way than say, Mittens.

Amazing. You mean that someone can mock a religion, and the practitioners of that religion won't burn down buildings and riot in the streets? They do something humorous and interesting? I thought all the folks who worshiped "invisible sky faeries" were stupid, reactionary, ignorant fools who had no sense of humor.

The show doesn't bash Mormons at all. It's just mocks religion in general and the (nearly always) silly origin of religions. That was my take anyway.


The show actually makes Mormons look hip in an uber-nerd kind of way. I'm positive, althought they would never admit it, the LDS love the show and the attention it is bringing.

They probably could have done without the TV episode though.

I know the tenets of Mormonism aren't any more ridiculous than any other religion, but they really push it into cult territory when they demand 10% of your income in order to level up your cleric.

From LDS.org
To enter the temple you must be a full-tithe payer

From wikipedia
LDS Church members perform rituals (termed ordinances) within temples. They are taught that temple ordinances are essential to achieving the condition of Exaltation (Mormonism) after the final judgment.

The LDS Church manual Preparing to Enter the Holy Temple explains that Latter-day Saints "do not discuss the temple ordinances outside the temples."

The point is Mormons have to have a Temple recommendation from the bishop to get into the super secret sacred temple ceremonies that give you more experience points from Jesus. Link

The bishop calls you in for a tithing settlement Link at the end of the year to see if you paid your full 10% before he recommends you. That is some Scientology level cult shiat where the more you pay, the more enlightened you become. I have never been in another church that makes you pay for full access to their ceremonies or teachings. They still pass the hat, but they don't keep track of who pays what unless you want them to for tax reasons.

Bye the way, if you've got a spare $100 or so lying around GO SEE IT! This was my wife's first musical (I'd have preferred something safer like "Cats" or "Les Mis") and she thoroughly enjoyed it, as did I. Despite not being the original Broadway cast they did an excellent job. The role of "Elder Cunningham" really impressed me, it's as demanding as "Elder Price" and the short fat guy they got for the part sings, dances, and just in general kicks ass.

I'm an atheist. But my wife is a Christian and I have been in several churches, mostly baptist. None require tithing as a precursor to salvation. Some encourage it more strongly, but saved is saved in their books, and they don't keep you from reaching "exaltation" if you don't grease their palms.

Again, BS. Not being a full tithe payer will not cause you to be unable to visit the temple, or even prevent you from taking part in the ordinances performed there. Off the top of my head, I only believe Word of Wisdom, or sexual immorality issues would prevent members from being given a reccomend.

I should make an addendum/amendment to that statement. Being unable/behind/etc on your tithing won't keep you from getting a reccomend. If you just decide you're just not going to ever pay again or something like that, that may actually keep you.

You are confused. The Bishop doesn't call you in at the end of the year for tithing settlement. It's up to you to sign up to meet with him for that. It is a chance to declare whether you are a full, part, or non-tithe payer, or exempt (on public assistance, retired with no income, etc.). There is no audit, or proof you have to provide at titihig settlement, beyond your word.

The tithing settlement meeting is a separate thing from a Temple Recommend Interview, although paying a full tithe is one of a handful of requirements for a temple recommend. You also need to pass a Temple Recommend interview with a member of the Stake Presidency to get a valid temple recommend.

If you are LDS, tithing is one of the commandments that you should be adhering to whether or not you choose to hold a current Temple Recommend.

If you are LDS, tithing is one of the commandments that you should be adhering to whether or not you choose to hold a current Temple Recommend.


So regardless of who initiates the tithing settlement, would you agree it is a necessary step to getting a temple recommend?

This Link from LDS.org says you have to pay honest tithes and do your temple thing to be exalted.

Those who receive exaltation in the celestial kingdom through faith in Jesus Christ will receive special blessings.

They will become gods.
They will have their righteous family members with them and will be able to have spirit children also. These spirit children will have the same relationship to them as we do to our Heavenly Father. They will be an eternal family.


So the LDS church promises that if you give them 10% (no lying about it) and do the magic temple thing you can become a god. If not, you'll may get some lesser level of salvation.

From Brigham Young University's encyclopedia of Mormonism:
Link
There are various levels of salvation because there are various levels of belief and works among people  

Sounds like you gotta pay if you want to level up to God mode.

So someone was paying attention. Remember where they come from too. That's the stereotype they are familiar with. Watch Orgazmo. They aren't making fun of Mormons, they are using them as a character in the same way Catholics were used in The Blues Brothers for instance.
Go live in Utah or Idaho for a few years and actually learn something about them.

From an LDS perspective, we believe that everything in our lives comes from God - our possessions, our relationships, our very lives. If one really believes that, giving back 10% of one's income isn't that big of a deal. Though I will admit, I'll occasionally salivate over how large my 401k would be if I had paid myself 10% these last 25 years of employment instead of giving it to the church.

Utah Information Minister: From an LDS perspective, we believe that everything in our lives comes from God - our possessions, our relationships, our very lives. If one really believes that, giving back 10% of one's income isn't that big of a deal. Though I will admit, I'll occasionally salivate over how large my 401k would be if I had paid myself 10% these last 25 years of employment instead of giving it to the church.


Why would anyone or anything need 10% of your income if everything came from God? Did God make a mistake in how he spread wealth around so we need to fix it?

RocketRay: Bye the way, if you've got a spare $100 or so lying around GO SEE IT! This was my wife's first musical (I'd have preferred something safer like "Cats" or "Les Mis") and she thoroughly enjoyed it, as did I. Despite not being the original Broadway cast they did an excellent job. The role of "Elder Cunningham" really impressed me, it's as demanding as "Elder Price" and the short fat guy they got for the part sings, dances, and just in general kicks ass.


It's $160/seat for the cheapest ticket (singular) in Detroit in March. Bah.

/have the soundtrack
//I can no longer think about the LDS folks without thinking "black people!"
///dammit $100 would already be the pushing it for a single traveling show... c'est la vie I guess

I hate to ask this, but did you go to ticketmaster.com? When I first looked for tickets I used Google and went to what I thought was the Pantages box office, instead it was a scalper and the cheapest they had was $200/seat! The tickets we got from TicketBastard were in the back of the orchestra and cost $104 plus about $16 in fees.
