Mormon Mentions: Anne Lamott

You may not be familiar with the "Mormon Mentions" feature on my blog, so let me explain: Hi, my name is Susan. I'm a book blogger and I'm a Mormon. I'm sure you've seen the ads, right? Well, as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (commonly known as The Mormon Church), I'm naturally concerned with how my religion is portrayed in the media. So, every time I read a snippet about Mormonism in a book written by a non-LDS author, I post it here, along with my opinion about its content. If you hate this kind of thing, feel free to skip these posts, but, if you have questions, answers, discussion points, whatever, please comment. I'm always interested in knowing what you think!

Okay, here's one from Operating Instructions by Anne Lamott. I don't really have much to say about it, I just think it's funny:

"Last night I decided that it is totally nuts to believe in Christ, that it is every bit as crazy as being a Scientologist or a Jehovah's Witness. But a priest friend said solemnly, "Scientologists and Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses are crazier than they have to be" (69).

Ha ha.


  1. I love that you do Mormon Mentions. They make me laugh

  2. Yep, I'm pretty crazy but happily so.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
