I get so frustrated when people do incredibly stupid things! Especially people who should know better, like the Grown-Ups at H.B.O. You may have heard about that crazy episode they're supposed to air about the Temple. (Although I think the Church's response is just so dignified, go us). So here's my letter, you could write one, too, if you want to. Sigh. Oh, well, the work will go forward. Poor uninformed people -- they're gonna get in trouble!!!
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Which as you know, and it just seems too obvious to say but I will anyway, has NOTHING to do with the polygamist community), I wanted to respectfully ask that you refrain from showing your promised episode of "temple ceremonies" in the upcoming episode of Big Love. Not because you have the information right -- it is not the words but the intent and religious conviction of the person participating, not just the words that make it sacred -- But because it is so important and special to the actual members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Besides, I am sure that if you really thought about it, you would not want to mock or stomp on the beliefs of any group -- L.D.S., Muslim, Baptist, Catholic, Hailbop People, Purple Elephants, Gays and Lesbians, or People Who Really Love Obama -- especially when it is so important to them and means literally nothing to you. PLEASE, I ask so wholeheartedly and even fondly 'cause I believe in your decency -- take another course and save us all a lot of hassle and heartache. Lovingly yours,
an Actress, Mother, Citizen, Politically Independent, Lover of Band of Brothers and John Adams, Proud and Believing Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, who gets real frustrated when you keep saying we're something we're not.
Love ya; now have a heart!!!
