GUEST,Gern BS: Is Doonesbury going too far? (69* d) BS: Is Doonesbury going too far? 10 Oct 12


Greetings from a long-time reader and occasional contributor. I'm a lifelong fan of Trudeau: I trudged thru the Mekong mud with BD, toured Reagan's brain with Hedley and even followed along with Governor Perry's pregnancy counseling Inquisition. But currently Doonesbury is following the adventures of Young Mitt as he performs is proselytizing duties. It's hilarious, of course, and spot-on politically, as one would expect. But is it mocking the Mormon Church? I can't speak for them, but would they be right to be offended? Mass media mocking religion is not only shameful but dangerous, as recent events should teach us. Is the edgy Trudeau over the edge? I'm a reluctant Obama supporter and have no use for Romney whatsoever. But am I the only one uncomfortable with this depiction of a religious duty? If anyone takes up this discussion, please break with Mudcat tradition and discuss without bashing this or other beliefs.
