Subject: RE: BS: Is Doonesbury going too far?
I have no particular use for Mormon theology, or any other Christian theology for that matter. Nor do I have much use for the Christian Right, which is where the LDS Church and most of its members can be found. However, I have a great deal of respect for the Mormon ideal of helping others - I was involved (as a VA employee) with the Rexburg (Idaho) Dam disaster in the late 1970s, and I remember that bus loads of Mormons came in and shoveled mud out of streets and yards, up one side and down the other, with no thought of the religious convictions (if any) of the residents.

I don't see any reason at all to ridicule anyone's religion, either for humor or to make a political point.
