HBO’s Big Love and the LDS / Mormon Temple Video

With HBO’s controversial Mormon Temple, Big Love episode set to air this weekend, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has created and released a timely video discussing the nature of its temples.  Calm, reassuring, and succinct, this video maturely approaches the sacred and spiritual nature of temples and their personal meaning to Latter-day Saint attendees across the globe.

Wow. I was surprised to see Frank Moore Cross and Krister Stendahl. They were some of the guys I learned from way back when I was still in school. Great video.

Tom Hanks puts this brouhaha into perspective (and waxes prophetic) at the 3rd season premiere of Big Love:

"There's gonna be lies, and secrets, and discoveries, and problems. Television!"

Thanks Chino Blanco. It is increasingly apparent that HBO cares nothing about accurate portrayals or honoring their promise that this show would have nothing to do with the LDS Church. This is television for ya, sensation-producing television. *sigh*
