HBO, TV Guide Ridicule Mormons' Most Sacred Temple Rites

Monday, March 16, 2009

Orson Scott Card says we should just ignore them and they'll go away. The church itself says it "does not call for boycotts. Such a step would simply generate the kind of controversy that the media loves and in the end would increase audiences for the series."

But what if they go too far in hatefully attacking those who dare defend traditional marriage?

It started when TV Guide published images of the sacred temple garment, as they promoted the hateful Big Love show. Yesterday HBO aired the sacred Priesthood handshake, the passage through the temple veil, and other parts of the most sacred and confidential part of the Mormon religion.

The Tribune says it was thrown in there, that it had nothing to do with the plot. The Tribune spins their report by concentrating on cultish Fundamentalists, however, hoping that "more people do watch the show and realize that all Americans (including polygamists) should be granted equal civil rights."

CBS defended HBO. Is it just coincidence that CBS and HBO's owner Time Warner have recently joined together in their deals? CBS said HBO just wanted to "create accuracy" as they portray "family and faith."

The producers of the show also said "we knew we had a responsibility to be completely accurate and to show the ceremony in the proper context and with respect." Uhh, since when are polygamists allowed into the Mormon temple??
