Jesus Says, "Mormonism ... All True"

by Saint Mark (bio)

It's official (again, see D&C 1:30). Jesus says that Mormonism is true. Alright, I know it's the Saturday Night Live version of Jesus, but I'll take it. I mean, how could the show that brought us Toonces the Driving Cat, Dieter of Sprockets, Wayne and Garth, and Eddie Murphy be wrong? I just knew that I moved to Colorado for a reason.

Check out what I'm talking about below. In a recent SNL skit, Tim Tebow prays Jesus into the Denver Broncos locker room, which is not too far-fetched a possibility in the imagination of a Denver Broncos fan.

I know it may be a little sacrilegious, but the parting words of Jesus are like Visa: priceless. After watching this skit, I began wondering: what other televised authorities have spoken on the truth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? Check out this theological statement of the correctness of Mormonism from South Park. Hey, who can argue with the greeter from hell?
Laughs aside, the skit from SNL was a great Christmas gift to my family and me. First, because we are fans of the Broncos. I kind of have to be since I married a fan. And second, Jesus and his support for Mormons. It's sweet to get a little positive fist-bump from the media after we've taken such a virtual stoning for the past, um, 180+ years.

Being a convert to the LDS church, I know the great value of joining the LDS church and I didn't need an actor playing Jesus on a comedy show who wore athletic socks to tell me that. But, it didn't hurt either. Thanks Mormon writer on SNL (aka Tina Fey); you just made my year.
