On being wrong, cont’d: The Book of Mormon

I so badly want to see this show.

The nod to “I Have Confidence” from The Sound of Music is brilliant. But here’s what’s truly funny about it: Everything the character sings about is an actual Mormon belief. What does it say about a religion when you don’t even need to twist or exaggerate its claims to make it look like a parody? And when you think about it, how much better would the claims of other religions fare, under such scrutiny?

Being wrong feels like being right, indeed.
