Meet the Mormons

Do you know any Mormons? 

If you are not one, what do you picture as a typical Mormon? 

I'm guessing that would depend on where you've lived in the world. 

Did you know that being called a Mormon began as an extremely derogatory name given by people who were filled with hatred towards members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints? 

Sure enough. Just as derogatory as any term instituted by bigots whose hearts became filled with anger because they felt threatened for one reason or another by groups of people who were "different". 

Many people still don't realize that the "Mormon Church" is actually named the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. That IS a mouthful, isn't it? 

If you happen to store some stereotypical vision of a "Mormon" in your mind, here is your chance to BREAK OPEN that box. Open the lid. Tear down each of the four sides. Expose that stale air to fresh, new, openness. 

Even if you are a Mormon, who grew up in Mormonville, shops at the Mormon Mall, and has all the right Mormon words hanging on your wall... Jump onto the internet, find a theater near you, and see if Meet the Mormons is playing in your area. 

Here is the trailer. All net proceeds from the movie will be donated to The American Red Cross.
