Thought of the Day #76

I've been watching "Big Love" on HBO. This week's episode was probably
their best and their most locally controversial. The local LDS crowd
was up in arms over the scene that depicted a temple endowment
ceremony. The trouble is that to LDS'rs, the ceremonies that take place
in the temples are considered sacred. The scene in the temple lasted
maybe four minutes. From what I can figure, a typical endowment
ceremony lasts at least an hour. So, take a chill, ya'll! The ceremony
details are all over online and in books, so for those who want to
know, they already know. What bothered me most about the complainers
was that they complained even before seeing the scene. Blind protests
annoy me to no end. In the end, the scene was pretty sympathetic to LDS
