Whenever something starts careening down the track and looks to be out of control, people start to ask, 'what happened!?' Thankfully at this stage of human progress, there will be plenty of video evidence available to hopefully reconstruct just exactly when, where and how Rusty Nelson screwed the pooch.
What gets me is how all the true blue Mormons are totally ignoring all the references by any and all prior church presidents regarding what a lovely word Mormon is, because, because -- Well, I don't really know why! How do they do it?!
Sure, one can see how one would desire the approval of the current One and Only Most Humble Servant of the lord, and those who serve him, and also, the now slumbering in their graves prophets are now so completely silent!
That's as close as I can come to explaining the complete lack of consideration today's devout Mormons are giving to Rusty's Revelation, in terms of how out of whack it is with Mormon history. Apparently true believing Mormons have all agreed that Rusty is infallible, as in every word that proceedeth over his tongue, past his teeth and lips and out the pie hole is the word of ghawd.
And currently, that word is, "Don't say or write the word 'Mormon' because it pisses Jesus the Christ off like you wouldn't believe!" And of course, no devout Mormon wants to piss off Jesus, or even Rusty!
So along comes an ignorant atheist Mormon asking, "'Ere now, what's up with that, cor blimey! How is it then, mate, that Joe Smith, Bring'em Young, Johnnie Taylor, Willie Woodruff, Lorenzo Snowday, Joe F'n Smith, Heber Jebers Grant, Georgie Albie Smith, Davey Oooo McKay, Joe no-hit/good Fielding Smith, Harry Beegees Lee, Spencie KWimball, EZ t-Ball Benson, Howie Honey Hunter, Gordo B. Whinckley and Tommy Smonson never got any such word from Jesus in heaven? Eh? How come? Cor, what's wrong with me logic, I asks?"
Well, it's a fair question, but devout Mormons do not dare to ask it, even of themselves!! Because the logical answer is that Rusty done pullllllled it, slowly and tenderly, outten' the hole in his garments.
But here's a thing! Devout Mormons have had practice ignoring logic and experience!!
There was that little thing about Blacks being cursed for their lack of bravery and commitment in the lovely days gone by of the pre-existence...you know, the war, where 1/3 of the host of heaven were cast out, and the less plucky to-be-born-Blacks all agreed, 'Yes, we were less valiant, so we deserve the cursing."
And now Mormons don't talk about it anymore. It's like it never happened!! Even though it's in Mormon sacred text and all over the internet, or as we say in Canadian-English, eh?, Satan's Information Super Highway!
So if Mormons can ignore 149 years of institutional racism, well then pretending that 16 prior Grand Poobahs had it wrong about the ugly, defaming word 'Mormon' is no biggie. And I bet the majority of them know that when Rusty cashes in his chips, the next Grand Poobah will chart his own path. I hope the next one takes us back to full long john garments, wrist to neck to ankles! Yeah!
Oh, it's good to be the king!
