All Right Then, I'll Go to Hell

Like Huck Finn, I want to be "good," but it's a hard choice

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Apr 23,2014 - I will particularly miss my favorite co-worker, Huck Finn, a 13-year-old boy with distaste for becoming “sivilized.” Huck and I have a lot in common: accidentally offensive, earnest, funny and deeply conflicted as to what it means to be good.

958 Words

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Apr 9,2014 - Am I having sex as often as I should be? No one escapes the bedevilment of that question. In the pre-Internet age, only a determined reference librarian might have found an answer

Ask Not

Questions Posed to the LDS Church Get Conflicting Answers

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Apr 3,2014 - On April 5, members of Ordain Women will again request tickets to the LDS Priesthood session. In March, the LDS Newsroom issued a pre-emptive statement that both contradicts current church doctrine and sends a confusing message

Pickle-Ball Progress

The sport whose time has (almost) come

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Mar 19,2014 - A couple of years ago, I called the Sports Mall in Murray. “Do you have Pickle-Ball courts?” I asked. “What the hell is Pickle-Ball?” they said as they gave me the bum’s rush.

Let Her Go

Interpretations can be justified

By Scott Renshaw
POSTED // Mar 5,2014 - On Feb. 17, a Mormon grandmother went viral—and became something of a laughingstock—when she said something a lot of other people had already said. The problem, it seemed, is that she had the audacity to say that thing from a certain point of view.

Dear Mormonism

Thank you for how you changed my life enough that I could say goodbye to you

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Feb 26,2014 - How are you? It’s been a while. The Internet tells me you are doing well, building new temples, writing fancy amicus briefs and trying to figure out what to do with your women. (Hint: Try priesthood.) Anyway, I know you are very busy, but I wanted to tell you thank you.

Litter Bugs

A little trash pickup goes a long way

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Feb 19,2014 - Oscar may love trash, but I don’t. And neither does Jeff Kirschner. Actually, it is trash-as-litter that makes Kirschner and me as grouchy as Oscar. Our coping mechanism differs, however. Kirschner has created an affinity group on a website called Litterati. Mine is a low-tech cope: I pick up litter. I retrieve it from the gutter as I walk the streets of my Sugar House neighborhood two or three times a week.

Mine Eyes Have Seen

By Monica Yancey
POSTED // Feb 12,2014 - My grandmother can taste the past, having heard firsthand accounts of our family’s Mormon pioneer ancestry from her elders. With sharp features and deep-set eyes, equal parts kind and blunt, she is our matriarch.

Jazz Man

25 years of the "Magical" Jazz Vespers

By John Rasmuson
POSTED // Feb 5,2014 - In 1987, when Tom Goldsmith came to Salt Lake City to be the minister of the First Unitarian Church of Salt Lake City, he brought with him the memory of a jazz program he had attended in a New York City church a few years earlier. And in the 25 years since he started it in 1989, his version of Jazz Vespers—a “jazz alternative” to his Sunday-morning service—has developed a loyal following, most of whom are not Unitarians.

Class Act

You Can't Please Every Student

By Stephanie Lauritzen
POSTED // Jan 22,2014 - A few weeks ago, I accidentally found out a few of my students really hate my class. (I discovered some comments online—I know, rookie mistake.) They hate that “we talk about religion all the time” (we just finished a unit on World Religions in Humanities), and they found the video we watched on the Parthenon “super boring.”
