The theme of my A to Z Challenge posts this year is "Blogging Buffet." In celebration of recently posting my 1000th blog post, I am revisiting posts from the past. This post originally published on July 29,2012.
Have you ever been curious about something, but didn't want to ask about it for fear of appearing ignorant, somehow offending, or being met with an all-too-enthusiastic answer?
Certain topics, particularly religion and politics, seem to elicit that response more than others.
In case you ever wondered about Mormons, here is a great info-graphic that gives an overview:
It seems that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is frequently in the news lately. Some of the reports are well-researched and respectfully written; others show a lack of knowledge, or do not accurately reflect Mormon beliefs. Click Mormonism FAQ to learn more about the beliefs of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Now it's my turn to be curious: Did the infographic or link provide information you didn't know before? And, are your religious views ever misunderstood, and what would you like to clarify?
Thanks for freedom of religion, and open, respectful communication.
