Quoting Quiverfull: Virtue Makes You Beautiful?

This video has been going viral lately. It features the young men from The Church of Jesus Christ Latter Day Saints Lone Peak Sandy Stake singing to One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” with new lyrics about female modesty. All the while in their tight slacks hip shaking in a way that might defraud young ladies.

More info on the artist and song at Deseret News. Be sure to visit Libby Anne’s blog to read her take on the video. This video could have been done by any group in Fundamentalist Evangelicalism and been exactly the same.  This is not a commentary on Mormonism.

    Sorry ladies, but this video just made me crack up!! It was Joseph Smith meets Bollywood! Those guys are a riot with their super-Mormonly styled hair and pristine Mormon slacks, getting their moves on! Oh my, tears from laughing. I am going to be a hysterical hee-hawing wreck the next time some 19-year-old “elders” come knockin’ on my door to proselytize. Maybe I will ask them to dance. Too funny.
