Over at Blogger of Jared, they are discussing what Mormon-Friendly Anti-Mormonism would look like (hat tip: Dave at DMI). This was inspired by an email received by Eric in which someone was arguing that the Bloggernacle was that. Eric specifically asked that the thread there not turn into general bashing of the Bloggernacle; after all, that’s what all their other threads consist of ;)
On being implicitly called insufficiently faithful by this anonymous emailer, I am mildly irritated. I consider myself faithful. I try my best to keep all the commandments. I believe that the Brethren are inspired. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and our only hope for Salvation. I feel like I have a completely average testimony of the Gospel. So being told that I am involved in a project that is designed to undermine faith (or even unintentionally undermines faith) is frustrating.
Perhaps the problem is that we Mo-bloggers have not done sufficient market research. What should faithful Mo-blogging look like? In times past, Meridian has been mentioned. Should faithful Mo-blogging look like that? Blogger of Jared was cited in this email as a faithful blog. Should we talk about the same things, but go out of our way to cite general authorities in every post or comment? Is it that we may all be wolves in sheep’s clothing? Should we begin every post with a note regarding our temple recommend status and our recent R-rated movie watching record?
I may sound sarcastic, but I am sincere. I want to know what you think faithful blogging about the church would look like. What do you think?
