Pro-Lifers To Burn Effigies on Halloween

October 27, 2009

In yet another return to the middle ages show of pure unbridled emotion, an anti-abortion activist is burning images of House and Senate leaders on Halloween.

Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry is calling on people to burn effigies of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this Halloween, as part of a “Burn in Hell” video contest to protest the health care legislation in Congress.

There’s nothing like a good old fashioned effigy burning to make your protest seem rational and sane.  And, after the protest, they all plan on chasing out the cities demons with flaming torches and vials of holy water.


The Infamous Banned Mormon Cartoon

October 27, 2009

Rather, it’s a cartoon not liked by the CoJCoLDS. I’ve heard many claims that it’s an inaccurate representation of their beliefs, but I’ve never seen any specific corrections. And, from what I understand, it was written by an ex-Mormon. It could just be that the tone is not quite right? That is a complaint of a lot of religious beliefs: if said humbly yet incorrect, it’s ok, but if said mockingly and correct, it’s not ok.

One way or another, I don’t think this cartoon has caused anyone to leave the LDS church. It makes it look far more interesting than I remember it being. I read the Book of Mormon when I was in high school … what a snoozer.
