    Just watched "I Believe" from the "Book of Mormon" on the Tony Awards.

    This can't possibly be making Mitt Romney happy.

    The song starts off with "What will this day be like? I wonder? What will my future be? I wonder? It could be so exciting, to be out in the world.....". Just like the song from the "Sound of Music". Then it goes off into Mormon beliefs. I thought the reference to blacks no longer having the "Mark of Cain" from the 70's was hilarious.

    Mormons wouldn't let blacks into their church because they thought being black was the sign of the "Mark of Cain". God turned blacks, black because they are decedents of Cain who committed the "original sin" of murder.

    When the Mormon Church was on the verge of losing their "tax exempt status", God sent a message that "black" isn't the mark of Cain. We don't know what it is, but it isn't that. Looks like God was "just in time".

    I actually read part of the Book Of Moremoan a while back. Pretty funny stuff.

    I missed the part about the password to get into heaven and the magic underwear though.

    The play "The Book of Mormon," which opened on Broadway Thursday night, has stirred up some controversy over its satirical approach to the Church of Latter Day Saints.

    Written by the creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, "The Book of Mormon" examines blind belief in religion through a constant back-and-forth between fantasy and reality.

    It's satire, written by the South Park guys. I think Romney's smart enough to realize it's not serious.

    Unlike you. :lol:

    You know how you like to pretend you're smart?

    You're not. You're astoundingly stupid.

    Pay attention, dumbass. The play is satire. That means it's not serious.

    But you, in your damn near infinite stupidity, think it's serious. I'll guarantee Romney knows it's satire.

    So, in summary, Matt Parker and Trey Stone are smarter than you. The play's reviewer is smarter than you. I'm smarter than you. Romney is smarter than you.

    You know why?

    Because you're stupid. :lol:
