You know The Book of Mormon — not the actual book, but the Broadway show. It mocks the Mormons and their religion every which way. Including in vulgar, sexual, and blasphemous ways. It is, of course, a monster hit. It has raked in millions of dollars, nine Tony awards, and legions of fans. They have laughed their backsides off. Attending last year was our secretary of state, Hillary Clinton.
A reader now informs me of an interesting story: The Mormon Church has purchased ad space in the program for the Broadway show’s L.A. production. One of the ads features a smiling woman and the words “The book is always better.”
Touché. An example of turning the other cheek, cleverly.
No one will ever make, or perform in, a Broadway show called Koran — i.e., an equivalent show to The Book of Mormon. The authors and performers would have a hard time remaining alive.
Instead, people will continue to laugh like crazy at the Mormons, as our country goes down the tubes, the world explodes, and we bemoan what a klutzy candidate Mitt Romney is.
