mental_floss magazine has a blog posting on their website about 13 Former Ad Men Who Found Fame in Other Field. President Monson makes the list at #13:
13. Thomas S. Monson
Monson, the current President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, got his start as an advertising executive for newspapers in the 1940s.
Well, he’s at it again. During last Friday’s show he did a “rant” on his show about the “birthers” who believe that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. He thinks they are stupid. Yet someone in talking about this issue, he manages to bring up Mormons.
In America there is no idea so patently absurd that it can’t catch on… for example, have you ever met a mormon?
Anyway, if you are interested, you can view the YouTube video
from 2:19 to 2:30.
I’ve done a pretty major update to my Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints page. I’ve been saving a bunch of links and hadn’t gotten around to updating the page until now. I’ve also reorganized the page a bit. I’ve added another category and alphabetized the links inside each category. There are now a total of 113 links!
