“Satire and the Sacred: From Mohammed to Mormon Underwear”

 

Tribune cartoon by Pat Bagley

 

Is there any way at all that I’m going to get through this without offending and/or irritating somebody?

 

Here’s an article from the Salt Lake Tribune on the meetings more generally.

    Funny you should post the FB joke about Samuel the Lamanite on the same day. You’d better bring along your year’s supply of dilithium so your shields can deflect all the photon torpedoes.

    “Is there any way at all that I’m going to get through this without offending and/or irritating somebody?”

    Is there some reason you would wish to?

      Yes. On the whole, despite my unjustified reputation in some circles, I don’t actually seek to offend or irritate others, and I don’t enjoy doing it.

        I don’t doubt that, Dan. I agree that we should strenuously avoid giving unnecessary offense. Tact is a virtue.

        But there are some topics where, no matter how conciliatory our tone or sincere our desire to find common ground, there is a high probability that someone is going to take offense if we discuss the topic honestly. In such a case, I hope I would be able to accept that and say what needs to be said anyway.

        I suspect you’re rather better at that than I am, actually.

    Did they make a recording? Can we listen to the panel online anywhere?
