FLDS versus LDS - A tale of two religions

For those of you who have been watching the news and may have wondered what the difference between the FLDS and LDS religions are, (thanks to my cousin in Georgia - love you Rita!) here is a simplified visual comparison....
Some Mormon women sing...


Some Mormon women dance...


Some Mormon women write scary stories....


And some Mormon women have lots of money and really great hair...



I know hundreds of Mormon women. They do all kinds of different things and live all different kinds of lives.


This woman served as a leader in the Mormon church. She recently spoke to teenage girls worldwide. She encouraged them to stand up to peer pressure, strengthen their families and serve others.


None of the Mormon women I know look like this...

None of them are marrying off their teenage daughters and -- although some may joke about wanting a sister-wife (preferably one who is really fat & ugly, does bathrooms and changes diapers) -- none of them really want to share their husband with anyone.
Furthermore...
Some Mormon guys can throw a ball...


Some Mormon guys yell at the ball...


Some Mormon guys make scary movies...


Some Mormon guys have a lot of money and really great hair...


I know hundreds of Mormon guys. They do all kinds of different things and live all kinds of different lives.


This is one of the leaders of the Mormon church. Last Sunday he spoke about honoring women, especially mothers, and gave advice to husbands and children about how to treat the women in their lives.


None of the Mormon men I know look like this...
The Mormon men I know are honest and hard-working. They don't cheat, smoke, drink or gamble. And TRUST ME....the last thing any of them want is another wife.

Great blog! Love the visual comparison, but the whole Texas thing is so sad! I feel for those children but I'm so glad somebody's doing something about it.

Very clever!

This is pretty smart, Stacy. An eye-opener for many, methinks.

Hilarious! Love it.

That was great! I really enjoyed it. And, it's so funny--the last thing a Mormon man would want is another wife.
