It’s Sweet 16 time in Mormonville, so let’s all go on a group date together and decide who’s moving on and who’s going home!
The Round 2 voting didn’t produce many upsets–those all took place in Round 1. In the Modern Mormon Prophets Region, we’re down to the heavyweights as the Silver Fox, Elder Holland, and President Eyring all clubbed their opponents like stranded baby seals, and Elder Oaks snuck past his Apostolic cohort pal Elder Nelson.
In Ancient Scripture voting, girl-power was insufficient to carry Esther or Deborah into the Sweet 16, as Adam and Enoch won the day. (Any further accusations of a female bias at BCC will be moved off-site to the edge of Temple Square where no one can hear you scream.) With no more Book of Mormon reps to help out, it’s John the Beloved holding court against three Old Testament foes.
In the Early Mormonism Region, however, did anyone really think that poor Heber C. Kimball ever stood a chance against Eliza R. Snow? Or Sidney Rigdon against Emma? The awesomeness of an Emma vs. Eliza regional final is sufficient to declare voting for them to be “The Right Choice.” That said, few could complain about the appropriateness of Joseph vs. Emma, Joseph vs. Hyrum (or even Eliza vs. Hyrum!) coming out the vote.
Meanwhile, in the False Prophets Region–where you people already screwed everything up and ruined my life–it’s the Son of the Morning, Lucifer himself, against artist Jon McNaughton. Yeesh! Also, Stephen R. Covey will try to motivate the Priests of Baal into more Effective ways of calling down fire.
Vote today and tomorrow. We will reveal the winner and start Elite Eight voting in a couple of days.
