LDS (Mormons) in the news - again

Oy!

Why does this keep happening? I see something like this about twice a year and I cringe every time.

"The fundamentalist FLDS sect has been sundered by a major state raid that by Saturday had brought out 183 boys, girls and women for questioning about their well-being." Read more: http://www.sltrib.com/lds/ci_8823648

The group is not considered authentically Mormon by the much larger Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, based in Salt Lake City. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints abandoned polygamy in 1890 and has never held some of the beliefs of the breakaway Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which teaches that women are property.

This is an outlawed sect (the FLDS), not the real deal.

Let's lighten up now with Jeff Foxworthy on Mormons. He's pretty apt although I don't recognize a few of them. :)

And here is the deal again about my Fantasies Contest for anyone who didn't read it yesterday:

In honor of my soon-to-be released book WILD FANTASIES, I'm going to hold a second contest for the month of April 2008.

Tell me what fantasy you'd like to live out if you had your own holodec? Would it be to make love with a werewolf? A vampire? Or something completely different? (Mine are listed quite vividly in WILD FANTASIES. :) )

Whoever has the most fun or erotic fantasy (as judged by the most votes in the poll) will win a $20.00 gift certificate to Amazon.com from me. I'll post your fantasies in a poll for the month of April for my readers to vote on. Whoever gets the most votes, will win. I'll announce the winner at the beginning of May. Email it to me at: chinara@aol.com or leave it in a comment on my blog at: http://www.ashleyladd.blogspot.com/ (As my email box fills up some days I'm at the day job, make sure you get a reply from me or resend again if you haven't heard from me within two days. The sooner you get your fantasy in, the more votes you can accumulate. This means tell your friends and family to come and vote for their favorite fantasy, too.)

Also, don't miss my regular monthly contest at my blog. To win a free download book, leave me at least one comment during the month of April on my blog at http://www.ashleyladd.blogspot.com/. It's that simple.

Remember, if you vote, to leave a comment. That way you're entered for the second, monthly contest. The more times you comment, the more times your name will be in the hat and the better your chances of being selected.

Remember, WILD FANTASIES releases at www.total-e-bound.com Monday April 7, 2008. Woo hoo! I'm thrilled.

Also, y'all pop over to http://www.workitmom.com to see my recently published parenting articles - under my name of Ashley Ladd. One was just posted today.

You know, I'm a complete heathen - no religion whatsoever - yet jokes about anyone's beliefs I find tacky
