The Mormons

For those interested, the second part of the PBS series The Mormons airs on PBS this evening. The first part will be available online later today.

I watched the last half of the first part, and the documentry is no propaganda film. Every side has a say. The first part covers the church's controversial past, tonight covers the present day church. Take a look, let me know what you think.

I PVR'd part one last night, and have the timer set to get part two tonight. I probably should have put last nights on DVD so I could watch it tonight while I'm sitting in a hotel room.

Hey Sushi--
Aren't you living in Mormon country?

I have family in the area who are now Mormon.

Lots of different lifestyles on this planet, and everyone things their own is the way to live.

DM - Cool, I might know them being Moromon myself.

Agreed many lifestyles on the planet, most of them are pretty cool. I've found most of the things that I really like come from cultures vastly different my own.

Nobody- Did you watch the program. In my opinion the covered a lot of the controversy (pretty objective coverage of that part I'd say) but they really didn't capture what its like to be a Mormon. Seems like the coverage was more directed at the fringes of the community rather than the heart of it. But they only had 4 hours, and all things considered I think they did allright on the show.
