Sunday's "BIG LOVE" Episode

Brothers and Sisters:

Perhaps you're aware of the current news coverage of reaction by individual members of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints to the scheduled episode of BIG LOVE on the Home Box Office channel this coming Sunday 15 March 2009 at 2100 Hours (i.e., 9:00 PM) Eastern Time.

Here is a letter to the editor published in today's issue of DESERET NEWS, and my published response to it.


Published: 12 March 2009

So the "Big Love" big shots have chosen to follow their profits and prove their power through desecration, on the grounds they are being accurate? Are they then willing to publish the private resting places of their dearest departed, so that all who wish may come forth and accurately spit upon them?

Brother Day, Et Alii:

I'm a member of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints, and I've only seen portions of a couple of episodes of the HBO series, "BIG LOVE", which I deemed inaccurate and uninteresting.

But, thanks to all this publicity, my natural curiosity is piqued, and I'm definitely going to either watch or record this controversial episode.

In human nature, there's nothing quite so attractive as that which is forbidden.

According to a statement at the Church's official web site, we'd be better off just ignoring this issue, rather than calling attention to it.

Additionally, I've always felt that any publicity, whether positive or negative, is ultimately good for The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints, due to the curiosity it provokes, and the resulting member missionary opportunities it presents.

Thank you.

Do any of y'all have any thoughts on this?

Normally, that television series, BIG LOVE, just ain't all that interesting to me.

Anyway, how does a polygamist manage to get endowed in the Temple?

Of course, I haven't yet seen the show, so maybe it's not a polygamist going through the Temple.

Mox nix.

Like I said, this CAN be an excellent missionary opportunity if we handle it correctly!

Hey, you know what they say in show business:

"It doesn't matter what they say about the Church, just as long as they spell the name correctly."

"Any publicity is GOOD publicity!"

Oh, Horrors!!!

I just now realized something!

Do you realize that tomorrow is FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH?


Thank you.
