A diamond/PBS invitation, for the curious, openminded, and intellectuals

FRONTLINE and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE Profile a Religion That Is One of the Great Neglected American Narratives

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of America's fastest-growing religions and, relative to its size, one of the richest. Church membership, now at 12 million and growing, sweeps the globe. But from the moment of its founding in 1830, the church has been controversial. Within a month, it had 40 converts and almost as many enemies. In the early years, Mormons were hated, ridiculed, persecuted and feared. Yet, in the past several decades, the Mormon Church has transformed itself from a fringe sect into a thriving religion that embraces mainstream American values; its members include prominent and powerful politicians, university presidents and corporate leaders.

I dated a Mormon for quite awhile, one of the nicest families I've ever met. Our neighbors growing up were Mormon as well, went to church with them a few times growning up.

The religion isn't for me, but I'm glad it fulfills some people's needs.

Here's an interesting quote about Joesph Smith written by one of his comtemporaries, Josiah Quincy, Mayor of Boston:

“It is by no means improbable that some future textbook, for the use of generations yet unborn, will contain a question something like this: What historical American of the nineteenth century has exerted the most powerful influence upon the destinies of his countrymen? And it is by no means impossible that the answer to that interrogatory may be thus written: Joseph Smith, the Mormon Prophet. And the reply, absurd as it doubtless seems to most men now living, may be an obvious commonplace to their descendants”

Interesting website. It seems like all you have to do is be baptized in the church to be considered Mormon(according to this website), it doesn't matter what you practice now...

I'm interested in watching it ... will I remember to watch it? That's the tricky part.
