He only wants heaven if he can bring his R-rated movies

What: After he tries to give a co-worker a movie called "Photographing Fairies" to watch, a non-Mormon learns about one member's views on R-rated movies.

Quote: "If there ever was even a remote chance of my joining up, it was squashed at that moment."

Reaction: Some people get really worked up about this, on both sides of the issue. No matter how persuasive some arguments may be though, I don't think we'll ever see a church-wide consensus.


  1. It's just difficult for me to imagine God preferring I watch the loud, violent, and silly 'Transformers 2' over the sweet, funny, and thoughtful 'Planes, Trains, and Automobiles'.

    I just assume God would have better taste than that.

    Thanks for the plug!

  2. Also, my post was largely a tongue-in-cheek exercise. The real reason I am not a Mormon is referred to earlier in my post:

    "...I didn’t like that these young men had absolutely zero evidence to support any of these strange claims about the nature of things. Eventually, they asked me to pray for the tingly feeling, and I said, no, I would prefer some evidence."
