I am not happy!! I had to edit this post, because I know I need to be nicer, but it's so hard to do when people are being ignorant and are showing no respect. I really am just so sad that the so called "non-mormons" that are being represented in Big Love are going to the temple, and they are ACTUALLY SHOWING sacred ordinances on the show. I'm just a little frustrated, and if you read on you will know why.....

"Many of you may have heard of HBO's television show, Big Love. It came out a couple of years ago, and it shows polygamous families. When it first came out, the church came out with a strong statement against Big Love and Polygamy. You can see the statement here:


However, as if the polygamy weren't bad enough, HBO has taken their unscrupulousness to new heights.
On Sunday, March 15, 2009, HBO will be airing a segment of their Big Love series that will show individuals dressed in full temple clothing (you can see the pictures right in the TV guide itself), and they are planning on recreating the temple ordinances on public television. They have an ex-member of the church that is helping them make this ceremony as authentic as possible (you can see even from the pictures they have posted how closely they have replicated the clothing).
Please help stop HBO from airing such an offensive show! You can go to the link below to submit a comment to HBO.

It's imperative that we get as many people to voice their complaints as possible before HBO airs the show. Please pass this information on to as many people as you can!

If you are not a member of the LDS church, we invite you to learn about our church and out temples from a true source: www.mormon.org

"Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart" --Psalm 24:3-4

Here's a link to the pic they show in the TV guide http://www.salamandersociety.com/temple/

The newsroom at lds.org offers some good advice as well:

PLEASE take some time and contact HBO.
Thank you!

It is sad. Here's another church article about it. http://www.newsroom.lds.org/ldsnewsroom/eng/commentary/the-publicity-dilemma#

Thanks for posting this Kristyn. It makes me sick to my stomach. Aren't the signs so clear to us that things are deteriorating quickly all around us? I submitted my comment to HBO. Here it is:

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I am completely saddened that you would take your show Big Love, to the extent of airing what we consider sacred content relating to our Temple. We keep these matters secret, only because they are sacred to us. What a sad day it is, when the media no longer displays any sensitivity to the feelings and rights of others.

I think we need to submit our comments, but also do the hard thing, and that is to turn the other cheek! So hard!
