I saw this online this morning and it really got me angry!
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I think it is so unfair that whenever Brandon Flowers (The Killers lead singer) is interviewed, he is always picked on for being a member of the church. Like he says in the interview, all of the band aren't Mormon and he is there to promote his music. It must be so frustrating.
What also really annoyed me was Richard Dawkins. What a pleb. If he was interviewing Amir Khan (GB boxer) would he attack him for being Muslim and lay into the Qu'ran? Is Dame Judi Dench attacked for being a Quaker each time she is interviewed? The tennis Williams sisters for being Jehovas Witnesses? NO, exactly! Then WHY does Brandon Flowers always have to answer about his beliefs?
Dawkins also didn't have a clue what he was on about. He said that the Book of Mormon doesn't sound like 19th century language which means its obviously fake because Joseph Smith wouldn't have talked like that. Of course it doesn't sound like 19th century language - its ANCIENT language. Joseph Smith translated the ancient golden plates that become the Book of Mormon.
I think Brandon said it right, that it is a misunderstood religion - if you want to find out the truth, speak to a member of the church or visit: www.lds.org or www.mormon.org
