Lee Thomson at the Journal Gazette/Times Courier has an interesting (read: idiotic) answer to the simple question: “Why does the Mormon Church not have crosses in or on their buildings, and why do Mormons not wear cross jewelry?”
It’s not everyday that I read someone’s answer to an LDS-related question that is quite so…. wrong. It is like Lee Thomson wrote this while tripping on acid, watching the Godmakers and reading a “Dummies” guide to comparative religion. It’s not just wrong, it’s poorly written and completely nonsensical. Mattoon and Charleston, Illinois — you deserve better. Any local residents should bombard the newspaper with calls for Thomson’s immediate dismissal; he has no talent whatsoever.
Now, a better question — why shouldn’t we permit a few crosses here and there? Wouldn’t that go a long way towards combating the notion that Mormons aren’t Christians?
