I went to see The Book of Mormon last night. Amazing! It was so funny. I laughed so hard. While this show is incredibly irreverent not only towards Mormonism, but also towards religion in general, I think it is extremely therapeutic for those of us who have experienced harm at the hands of religion. Also, while it would be extremely easy for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to respond to a show like this with anger and legal action, I was impressed to see that the majority of the advertising in the Playbill was from them.

I just wish that this show had been around earlier in my life. During all of those years when I was trying to not be gay, it would have been so much easier if someone had simply told me that all I had to do was "Turn it Off!"
