, maverick comic book auteur, has plied his pen on such notable series as Madman
, The Atomics
, Red Rocket 7
, and *ahem* X-Force
Now, Allred, a long time member of the Church of Latter Day Saints
, has turned his attention to The Golden Plates
, a 12 volume adaptation of the Book of Mormon
(earlier discussion waaaay back here

. Pick up a copy at your local comic book store or Mormon book store, crank up Low

Interactive Church Music Player
The LDS Church has created a cool new tool for exploring its hymnbooks: a Flash application that not only shows the sheet music, but allows transposition, tempo changes, part selection, and all kinds of other nifty things.

Two men arrested for handing out anti-Mormon literature.
"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' and Salt Lake City's restrictions on behavior they deem "offensive" on the plaza are now the subject of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit before the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver." ... "The deed made it clear it [the plaza] was not a First Amendment forum..." Does the ACLU have a good case?

Make way for the Mormons :)
Reports of religions' demise have been greatly exaggerated. The Economist reports, "[w]ithin four decades, one in 20 Americans may be a Mormon and there may be 50m or more worldwide. How will outsiders react to the next world religion?" Minivans, trampolines and canned food, hooray!

For the Mormons here at MeFi -- and, of course, anyone else -- the Church
is broadcasting a Memorial Service
nationwide, that is also being streamed
(requires Windows Media Player). I'm sure other national religious organizations are doing the same... so if you know of others, post them here.
