It’s creepy. Really. I mean, who do you know with moustaches these days? Only pervy, creepy guys.
I know the no facial hair rule was born out of a different time than I was. The honor code and rules for bishops, stake presidents, and low-end general authorities say no facial hair, except moustaches. You can have a moustache. This was determined long before I was born and solidified during the days of Magnum P.I. Moustaches were deemed attractive, appropriate, clean cut and not subversive.
But the world has changed. It’s darker and cruder than it used to be. The moustache no longer represents the goodness of yesteryear. We are Mormons living in the now. We need to accept what the world has become.
As far as I know, a general authority moving up the ranks has to make the commitment to absolutely no facial hair. I believe this is the law of the gospel and that all of us should step up to the plate, show our faith and eliminate moustaches from Mormonism. It is the higher law. Let’s live it.
You think I’m kidding, but I’m not. Moustaches give me the creeps. I should probably make a Facebook Group. Please join it.
