Another shot from Bill Maher

A few months ago I posted some comments about Bill Maher’s “documentary” Religulous. He obviously is no fan of organized religion. Mormons were covered in the movie, but I didn’t think what he said about us was any worse than what he said about other faiths.
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.

Huge “Official web sites of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints” update

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!
