Re: “'The Book of Mormon' takes vulgarity and hilarity on the road

If you're easily offended, see a different show. If you can handle vulgarity with your guffaws, this show is brilliant. Smart, funny and wildly entertaining. The music is catchy and the lyrics are hilarious and clever right from the first scene's "Hello"! The character development is strong and the show skillfully takes the audience through enough of a rudimentary explanation of the beginnings of Mormonism to make the jokes make sense, even to those unfamiliar with the religion. The Book of Mormon is truly a musical masterpiece, but it's worth noting again, not for the easily offended... PS. My 78 year old father loved it too. - Just sayin'

Re: “Book of Mormon announces lottery tickets for next week's run at NCHS PAC

Anyone who thinks there is artistic merit to anything the creators of southpark invented are a little slower than the rest of us.

I hope that the creators of southpark are killed violently spreading their stupidity like the aids virus that they probably got from each other.

Thank you VIACOM for showing us that there are STUPID CORPORATE CEO's that control and destroy american values with NAZI propoganda like this retarded "play".

I am offended that you theater MORONS thought this play would be welcome here. BOOOO!
You suck! Nobody likes you! I hope It is a LOSS of money for your organization. On top of that it makes you all look STUPID and TRASHY (from the actors to the directors!).

I would rather be raped with a coathanger than donate a penny to the north charleston performing art center after this.

Oh yea WE have the FREEDOM of TIME to go and make our own play countering this horrible production right RON? bullcrap. More like we have the FREEDOM to tolerate BIGOTRY and IGNORANCE like this play in our own backyard and pretend its american when it does not represent our values.

I have seen The Book of Mormon. While it is a vulgar (and hilarious) satire, the ultimate theme is pretty uplifting and espouses much hope for humanity.

Emily, the same freedom of religion that you enjoy also applies to other people, including the creators of this production. Faith is not a zero-sum game. If you feel your faith is diminished because of the beliefs of other people, the problem does not lie with them.

Re: “Book of Mormon announces lottery tickets for next week's run at NCHS PAC

Emily, I have not seen the play, so I don't know if it is really filled with lies and nonsense, I can't confirm your impression. I used to attend Mormon worship for a time, and I can confirm that none of the Mormons hurt me, even though I did not find faith there, I still don't belong to any religion. So of course I know there are many good people among the Mormons, though of course nobody is perfect. I have read the Book of Mormon, and while I did not find it persuasive, there is certainly some good stuff in there. And I did not see any terrible stuff there, like I saw some in the Bible, like sexism, homophobia, approval of slavery, approval of genocides. Though I did not like in the Book of Mormon the teaching about the necessity of faith for salvation. I do like though that your church teaches many will be converted after death. Most Christians don't believe that. Anyway, I did not find this teaching in the Book of Mormon though. I did find it in Doctrine and Covenants, so it seems to be a later teaching.

Re: “Book of Mormon announces lottery tickets for next week's run at NCHS PAC

This is all complete lies! Mormons are sweet and loving people! You are making me want to cry. In fact I am crying! I'm a Mormon! You don't make fun of Catholics! Not that you should. This is so mean and uncool! Read the real book of Mormon. See real missionaries. Feel the spirit and be happy! This is what I call lies because people won't expect a religion. I live in America. I have my freedom of religion. This is just making me sad. Why? Just to make money. This s wrong! So wrong. Mormons thousands of us came strait into the storms and helped thousands of people. One church leader who is in his late 80's was out there helping. Think about this, and ask yourself is it really wort it to buy some tickets to a play filled with lies and nonsense?

Re: “Charleston comedian Jeremy McLellan is crushing it in Pakistan

I like to think that Jeremy has the dismissal by Gellar printed out and framed because being the antithesis of what that woman believes is a great ideal to reach for any person with a functioning heart and brain.

I'm sorry he had creative differences with TEDx. He would have been a great addition to their lineup. Hearing things that make you uncomfortable isn't always bad.
