The "Mormon Moment-Um"

Karen Trifiletti
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or Mormon Church, there is a lot of misinformation given out in entertainment, sports, websites and other news media.  As I commented in an earlier post, we are bombarded with so much misinformation in what is truth about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the only thing we as members of the Church can do is continue to tell others our true beliefs and hope they are paying attention.

One of my fellow writers, Karen Trifiletti, who is also a member of the Church, wrote an eloquent, informational article for the Deseret News about this very topic called "Mormon Moment-Um".  We as Mormons cringe when we hear misinformation spread so wide and thick which is then taken to be truth. Karen, on the other hand, has written her  true thoughts down about this topic which hits the nail right on the head.

Here is a small sample:  

"Like others, I've prayed; I've responded. I've hoped for truth to be represented. It's hard when you can't immediately backspace over an ignorant media take or flagrant fallacies about your very own genuine faith and intimate walk with Jesus Christ — and the pristine beauty of the gospel message. But we know that the Lord compensates, that civil dialogue yields great dividends and that he opens doors for his message to be shared."

 As time goes on, the only thing Mormons can do is keep writing, keep talking or keep producing truth for others to understand.  Hope you enjoy her work.
