After that whole matrimony business, I purged my Google Reader of my wedding blog collection and solicited requests for new reading material. A dear friend directed me to the Nie Nie Dialogues. And then I caught a Sister Wives marathon while baby-sitting, which lead me to try and read Daughter of the Saints whilst honeymooning. And all of this lead to John finding me on the LDS website the other day, giving me that “But didn’t we agree that liberal Jesus was our default faith?” confused look and all I could say was, “But this Mormon stuff is so interesting!”.
Point is, I find fault with a lot of stuff the LDS promotes (in particular, actions re: Prop 8 did not scream messianic love to me), but those blogs are so. darn. addicting. (I read them over caffeinated tea – ironic, no?). Emily Matchner at Salon hit the nail on the head – read this article.
EDIT: Add this to the collection.
