Wolf in sheeps clothing.

I left church after sacrament this Sunday because I had sick kids, so I didn't see it. As my wife was leaving, there was a DVD on the windshield of our van. On the cover was two pictures. In the top left corner there were the words JESUS CHRIST with a picture of Christ, and on the bottom right there was a picture of Joseph Smith, and in large letters, were JOSEPH SMITH. The whole feel of the cover screams LDS. Someone has obviously worked hard on making it look LDS friendly.

The look and feel of the cover was pretty good, my wife was fooled by it. I think even my seven year old son, the one who actually found it, was a little excited to watch it. I knew immediately because, first off, why would a legitimate DVD need to be snuck under the windshield wipers of cars in LDS parking lots?

Taking a look at the website that is listed on the cover also gives it away. Good for LDS When visiting the website, we find a famillar name on there, Sandra Tanner.

I immediately drove to the church and took all the DVDs off the windshields of the cars. There were about 20 of them out there. They were only on the windshields on the outer edges of the parking lot. They obviously wanted to be as discreet as possible.

When I got home, I explained to my son what the video was and what the people who left it wanted to do. We then threw the videos away.

My wife kept asking "Why would they do this?". I think we all would really like to know the answer to that question. Whay do some people feel that they are pro-Christ by being anti-Mormon?

Sad indeed.
