What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
From the LDS.org newsroom:
Last night, the popular reality television show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition aired an episode that featured a performance by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The Pauni family of Logan, Utah, lost their father two years ago, leaving their mother to carry the responsibility of providing for nine children. The Paunis were selected by ABC for a home makeover.
The choir was asked to participate since the Paunis are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The choir performed the family’s favorite song, “Love At Home,” which is also a popular Church song.
The concept behind this TV show is an awesome one. However, I don’t watch it because I can’t stand the femmy men and materialistic, airheaded women. In the episodes I’ve watched, I have enjoyed seeing the reaction of the families and the sheer surprise and excitement in their faces as they see what a great blessing they’ve been given.
If only there were more programs out there that had morals, altruistic causes (this is arguable, since ABC is just out to make money by using this type of angle, I imagine), and tear-jerking scenes of family bonding. And no femmy men and materialstic women. That’d rock.
If anybody runs across the clip w/ the Motab in it on Youtube/Google Video, lemme know!
