A clear-cut case of homophonia in Utah

Devout Utah Mormon Tim Torkildson, above, gets fired for supposedly associating the Nomen Global Language Center with homosexuality. Torkildson, according to the Wonkette blog, is “politically conservative, a devout Mormon”, who got himself sacked for writing a blog explaining homophones: words that sound the same but have different meanings and often different spellings — such […]

Mormons ape Islam over apostasy

A COUPLE  of years back, a Mormon bishop from Illinois got into hot water for coming out as an ardent supporter of gay rights. Death threats followed. Life got weird fast for Kevin Kloosterman, above, who was reported here as saying: Mormons of the more conservative variety called for me to be excommunicated. There was […]

Trending now: Mormon ‘magic underwear’ porn

I REALLY don’t know who’s more shocked over a weird new development in the world of porn, me or the apostles of the Church of Latter Day Saints. My shock, though, was tempered with mirth. I actually burst out laughing in the bar last night when Sensations barman, Sammy Kruz, asked me whether I – […]

Mormons angered by ‘tasteless’ cover

A SPOKESMAN for The Church of Latter Day Saints this week lashed out at Businessweek’s latest cover, which uses humour to highlight an in-depth investigation into the affairs of the barmy religion … or cult, as some claim.

Trouble is, a lot of people – mainly Jews – aren’t seeing the funny side of this barminess, and there has been a lot […]

Mormons’ baptism blunder

APART from wearing “magic” underwear, the Mormons are associated will all sorts of other bizarre and comical practices, not the least being the baptism of dead people. Of course, the dead need not accept such posthumous baptisms – dearly departed souls can apparently accept or reject the Church of Latter-Day Saint’s baptismal rites. It’s anyone’s […]

Mormons are hypocrites and liars

The Mormons were cock-a-hoop last year after the success of Proposition 8, the campaign to eradicate marriage rights for same-sex couples in California. But, in the wake of the passage of Proposition 8, the Church of Latter Saints stood back, essentially saying: It was nothing to do with us, guv – a big boy done […]

Catholic Church attacked by Mormons

It takes a very special kind of stupid to vandalise a church, then post evidence of your crime on the Internet. But, hey, who ever said that religious folk were intelligent? Three young Mormon missionaries carried out the attack at the Sangre de Cristo Catholic Church in San Luis, USA, in 2006, but their deed […]
