After listening to his solo album one could infer "the fire that is still burning" has indeed influenced it.

You should apply for a mormon ad: "I'm sexy, I'm single, I love the Killers and I'm a mormon" ;)
I just discovered those ads and I find them hysterical (and darn well made too).

Yet he admits he drinks and smokes. What a great example of Mormonism for all the world to see.

Judgmental much?

I would rather have someone real, who admits their weaknesses, represent the church than the self-righteous, judgmental ass holes who will pray with you on Sunday, then prey on you the rest of the week. So yes Anonymous, he is a great example of Mormonism for all the world to see.

p.s. Authors of such comments should at least have the balls to leave their actual name. Hiding behind anonymity is too easy, I rarely respect those who take the easy route.

I once heard a talk from a 70 (Clayton, I think) who said church should have smoke breaks. That way people who smoke can still come to church without feeling bad.

My super kind, super compassionate, super convert-to-the-Mormon-church father has said "the best smell in a sacrament meeting is cigarette smoke and alcohol". I agree because despite those outward sins, those people are trying. Unlike a lot of us who have greater sins that no one can see and we are too prideful to admit them. It's easy to judge someone based on their past behaviors but the best thing about the gospel of Jesus Christ is that it's never too late to admit your wrongs and turn your life around. Even if you have to do it once a week at church.

Amen.

It's people like "Anonymous" that make people feel like they can't go to church, or come back after being gone because they feel like they'll be judged by "holier than thou" members. Those type of people give Mormons a worse name than those who smoke or drink! I think I'd rather meet my Maker as a smoker or drinker than someone who passes judgment on others. Very sad.

This is why I hate to affiliate with the church at this point.. I don't want to open my mouth up and have my brains fall out when one of the women in Relief Society have something to say about a tattoo or 2 that I have... cause I know I would say, "your garments are hanging out every time you bend over or how do you have the time to listen to the lesson, when you are spending half of it talking gossip about the girl with the tattoo on her ankle, all the while trying to shove your garment up and back into your too short of sleeve church wearin' dress!!"

My daughters biomother barged into my home one day..she told me I was a bitch in front of my children, told my husband to "be a man" all the while marching around with my step daughter in her arms..screaming complete obscenities and that garment wearing, freshly 1 week prior married in the temple woman would have slapped my face if my husband hadn't of grabbed her hand...AND THIS PERSON IS SUPPOSEDLY "BETTER THAN ME" BECAUSE SHE GOES TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY!!! How does she sleep at night??!!??

I'll never understand how the latter day saints of this day and age have changed to pompous arrogant assholes. Representing the church with their actions will for surely ruin a beautiful thing....

* I will say not EVERY single LDS member falls under this statement...but more than less *

Well ya'll know I'll let you sit with me on the back row and I'll even share the candy I sneak in. In fairness, my last ward here in the Minn was spectacular (most of the time). There were tattoos everywhere and cops frequently showed up to drag people out and off to jail (although they were usually looking for folks in the single's ward, not the family ward)...and we loved them just the same. It speaks to the culture, the gospel just isn't that way, but the culture is a HUGE road block 98% of the time.
